Ode to the Pit Bull

Recently I’ve been reading too many articles both good and bad about Pit Bulls. I have a mixed pit so it does hit home, reason why I decided to write the following piece.

Ode to the Pit Bull

They say I’m vicious. A killer. Maybe even barbaric.

Is it my stand?

My face?

My bark?

But why am I being judge by that anyways?

There’s a saying that’s well known, “Don’t judge a book by its cover”

But when it comes to me, it’s out the window.

Why is that?

I’m loyal—a true companion.

I’m playful and loving.

I just need someone that’s dedicated. Willing to go that extra mile to mold me into the right companion.

But if you won’t be dedicated.

If you won’t take the time to teach me what’s right and wrong.

Don’t take me in.

I want a happy life.

Not a bad reputation.
