    My heart goes out to the Precious 2legged, who was just out walking her Precious 4legged. That is why there’s a “LEASH LAW” here o. TEXAS. MAY THEY BOTH REST IN PEACE…

      Hopefully they won’t Cristen. Maybe we’ve taught the importance of unfair labeling to someone somewhere. Just hoping people will stop being so ignorant and negligent with labels.

        I watched the report on KOCO news, the officer has already stated the dog shot was a “Pitt Bull” and says he doesn’t know the breed of the dog hit by the police cruiser. I’m not sure how knowledgeable the officer is with “Pitt Bulls’ sometimes “Pitt Bull” is in the eye of the beholder. I know I’ve seen many breeds called “Pitt Bulls” by clueless people.

    This is truely horrific. This poor women and dog. Hope they can find her family. Yes the owners of these need to face consequences. That is the same as a loaded weapon. And the dogs that killed the women had to be raised vicious but how ever they were raised doesn’t matter now. Its too late. The dogs owner needs charged, this poor women was murdered.
