October is Pit Bull Awareness Month. Now, most of us are aware of pit bulls. They've gotten a lot of bad press over the past few years. The truth is that for every bad story you hear there are hundreds more loving, faithful, and well-behaved pit bulls and pit bull mixes.

Pit Bull

My neighbors have a lovely pit bull mix. They are very careful to make sure that she is leashed or fenced in securely at all times. While she has made the mailman jump, she is a good dog. Her mom and dad's main concern is for the many cats in the neighborhood. While she is willing to give humans a pass, the local feline population might not be so lucky. Naturally, my cat just loves to run out and watch her go by.
