Hallie is recovering from another attack. While returning home from a walk, a pit bull pushed her way underneath a closed gate and charged straight for her throat. Through some combination of my efforts, the belated action of the dog owner, and the Power of Universal Love, Hallie sustained serious, but not life-threatening puncture wounds to her side. She remains on antibiotics, and her wounds require twice daily draining and cleaning.
I know all pit bulls are not bad dogs. In fact, they are mostly, deliberately, often cruelly, trained to be that way. (Monkey-people are no different.) Still, I encourage all of you to be wary of any you see until you have excellent reasons for behaving differently.
