  1. So now we as a supposed civilized society are indicting a dog based on a hiking picture? Wow. That’s so advanced. We’ve all come so far. If that’s the case, then what is the heritage of the human in the picture? And based on your determination of his ancestery, he is then what? And guilty of what? And involved in what? Seems to me he is involed in a hike. With a dog. The term pit bull is slang for identifying an animal forced to fight another animal in a pit. I see no evidence of that here. All I see in this picture is a dog hiking with a human companion. And, this picture could have as well been taken of me and my dog while hiking. And now the lemming police that cannot possibly bring themselves to think for themselves and instead seemingly endlessly regurgitate each others slop are embarking on yet another pit bull witch hunt this time for all white and lemon colored dogs in NH? Basset hound and beagle owners beware.

  2. I am a veterinarian. Without making any claims on whether pit bulls have an atavistic tendency to attack other dogs or people, I’ll stay out of the fray. However, I do counsel owners that if you do get a pit bull, that in addition to all the problems that come with every dog, you have also acquired a public relations problem. That is just the reality of the situation.
