    Yep, I'm from the old school, schooled by people like KIMSEY WOOD, Ronnie Hyde, even Maurice Carver. Doesn't make me anything, just telling where my perspective on bulldogs come from. I call them bulldogs affectionately, most younger ones are confused and say pits! Well they're just bulldogs...

    I don't like dog fights and would not fight mine. I do understand the importance of proving our breed dough. Sometimes I think that the gameness in apbts will desapeer with time (if we stop proving them). Please send me your opinion on this matter.

    I know this is a more rescue oriented board but This is a good read! Recently an old friend asked me, "why do you have such an interest in fighting dogs?" if you ever asked yourself that question, you know that when you truly have the answer you know a lot more about yourself. in trying to...

    The Color of Gameness by Richard F. Stratton It is hard to believe now, but I do remember as a youngster how I couldn't quite understand the more experienced pit dog men's preoccupation with gameness. I was more impressed by flash, agility, and talent...

    If you don't want to discuss this, or are tired of it, don't participate. I want to discuss it and hear other people's thoughts and opinions. What does gameness mean to you? To me, gameness in reference to APBTs is the ability to perservere at all costs, over any obstacle, -or die trying...

    By Richard F. Stratton It is hard to believe now, but I do remember as a youngster how I couldn't quite understand the more experienced pit dog men's preoccupation with gameness. I was more impressed by flash, agility, and talent. My thought was, " Give me the talented dog and let the other guy...
