Pet peeves

Ok I have a hard time deciding which I detest more or what makes me cringe.

I should make poll so people can vote. Lol

when people say the pit bull is NOT a breed. YES IT IS!!! its the American Pit Bull Terrier. It doesn't mean a bunch of breeds and it doesn't matter if you spell it pItBuLl PIT BULL pitbull. And even though people think it should be accepted to mean multiple breeds and be a type it isn't. It's a breed.

The pit bull is the American Pit Bull Terrier. ONLY. And it's not Pitbull or pittbull.

Anyone else got pet peeves that make you want to correct every time you see them no matter how many times you have already done so?

I'm guilty. -- one of the them. Because to most people who are unfamiliar with the breed...pitbulls is a "general" term. If I were to throw out ABPT in conversation most people would be like "huh?!"

Then again, I give people the benefit of the doubt because its like that in a lot of off-subject cases. I am a hairstylist and hear all kinds of verbage that makes me cringe! And tattoo artists get to hear "tats" and "ink" and all that nonsense as well.

I understand your pet peeve definitely!!

I have so many pet peeves I could write a book. Although I'm sure I will be guilty at one point or another of offending somebody else's. One of them that isn't breed specific are the ads on Craigslist or Facebook "need a home for this dog TODAY or he's getting put down/shot/dumped." To me when you get a pet or take in a stray its your responsibility to take care of it. If for some unforeseen circumstances you can't keep it its your responsibility to find it a forever home not just dump it off on the first person willing to take it. I also hate "status symbol" folks. You all know them. The girl/guy fishing for attention that goes out and gets the dog just because that's the "in" thing to have (applies to several breeds from apbt, bullies, Rottweilers, etc). As soon as the "cool" wears off it ends up in the pound or on Craigslist. 90% of the people that buy puppies for presents. That irks me royally because tons of those puppies end up dumped pretty quick when they grow up to be dogs. Like nobody had a clue that that cute little puppy will actually end up being a dog at some point in its life. Or when parents buy a puppy for their child and then dump it off when they realize that their child wasn't old enough for the responsibility so now they have to feed, water, etc... I could go on for days!

Two things really annoy me the first being that every one and their grandma thinks they have a "pit bull". I'm usually the bearer of bad news lol. The other thing that annoys me and I really really hate to see is the "tough guy" (some skinny punk) thinking he's the man because a big blue mastiff mix, which he refers to as his APBT, is dragging him down the street. I always have to smile though, because to him he thinks he looks really cool, but in reality he looks like a moron who couldn't leash train a dog.

Haha I hear you all and agree!! I also used to argue that pit bull was a term not a breed, but I realized people couldn't grasp that concept on why it was so dangerous more than proactive and more people seem willing to listen when I try and explain it. I realized I was just jumping on the media band wagon accepting people calling my dog a pit bull.I figured instead of trying to show how all pit bulls are good (which is how a lot of advocates go, jut not realistic to me) I would go the facts route and try to get people on board with how wrong it is to call a dog a pit bull without knowing if it is indeed an APBT. Not every dog is good. And no particular breed is worse than any other.

Oh boy this has all hit me alot in the past month or so. I have been called abusive, neglectful and everything you can name of because of a few reasons.

1. I believe it is perfectly fine to chain/pen your dog outside. As long as you feed, water, give attention, and exercise it is fine. However I just got into it with someone who runs a rescue who takes peoples dogs if they are out in a pen or chained out! even if they are healthy! crazy...

2. I believe cropping is fine. It's not painless but it certainly isnt abuse.

3. I support Weightpulling...lately this has been a huge thing on my facebook...people shouting abuse!...drives me batty.

4. people these days see a overweight dog and consider it loved....wth people you are killing your dogs by putting the lbs on!....people see in shape APBTs and scream starving! ugh

#4 kills me as well. I see a lot of people (idk why but mostly other women) having these mini cows on leashes panting after walking half a block.

#1 Is also something that really bothers me. I was once volunteering my time in helping a dog rescue (not long ago lol). Well they believed all tied up dogs belonged to "thugs" no matter what. I could no longer do it because they failed to see the culture differences. Some of these dogs who they deemed abused were dogs that rounded up the cattle and had purposes. They were probably better taken care of then half the dogs in Phoenix.

I'm very inclined to agree with you SheWolf, but man is that a touchy, touchy subject. My wife and I have close friends that own three 40+ pound dogs none of which have ever been off the property which is only about 400 square meters.

But, they're close friends of ours and if we were to say something, it would insult and offend them on a fundamental level. It would either be a very sore area of contention or it might possibly end a friendship.

One thing it wouldn't do is change their behavior. They might take the dogs on a walk for a week or so, but they'd fall back into the same pattern of sensory deprivation. Don't get me wrong. The dogs are fed, sheltered and bathed regularly... still, it just doesn't feel right.

Nevertheless, not sure it's appropriate to say anything to them. Not my dogs, probably not my business. There are plenty of dogs that have it worse. To add to the juxtaposition, they're all shelter rescues.

Well personally I believe every dog should be socialized but technically if they are just strictly working dogs it is not as necessary. I just took it personally because at this moment my dogs are outside. it is due to my life circumstances but i also do not believe having an outdoor dog to be abuse...now it is if it isnt properly cared for (ie. fed, watered)....I do not take kindly to people judging others and it seems lately i say one thing and am instantly jumped for my opinion lol...hell i said on facebook that declawing a cat wasnt bad and oh boy was i jumped and called an abuser that should never own animals...lol...ohwell.
