I have had this cartoon on my refrigerator since I found it in my Sunday paper back in 2008... I thought ya'll would enjoy this:

I googled the cartoon a few minutes ago and was able to find the cartoonists' commentary on it.

Pitbulls are not "by nature" vicious dogs. I should know, as I had two of them as pets growing up, and one was probably the kindest animal I've ever come across. I blame the owners, and a cycle of abuse that is directly related to training them to kill one another. Problem is, they can't just turn off that mechanism when it's a small child or helpless individual in front of them. People should not let these types of dogs roam free in neighborhoods. It's a menace, and laws should be put in place to protect the innocent. For this cartoon I wanted to turn the idea of pet adoption on it's ear to make a point about this. Hope it worked.

By the way, since I know my cartooning buddy Clay Jones loves dogs so much (no really - this guy LOVES dogs - sleeps with them plutonically and all that), and I know that he has a Google alert out on his name, I wanted to post his name here to be sure he saw this cartoon. I think he would appreciate it.
