    I've never been around a pit bull but I hate rotties. I wouldn't care if the entire breed was exterminated.

    I feel exactly that way about poodles!
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    I think she has a spaniel, not a poodle.

    She does have a cocker spaniel. My least favorite dog is a springer spaniel---the one whose spaniel rage took out my Jessie, my first greyhound, in the greyt spaniel attack that caused $5k in vet bills and lots of heartbreak.

    Yeah, guess spaniels are evil.

Three are now deceased; all were loving, wonderful dogs. One of the males didn't particularly like kids, would tolerate them, and usually just left the room. That was my first, Jessie. Jackson loved kids, would go out of his way to play with tthem. Blue is terrified of kids, but would never hurt them. He merely shakes when he's around them.

    Xena, SR's pup from Florida, doesn't pay much attention to kids, but Darlene loves them. So did my old girl, Tiny, now deceased. She'd pester kids to play with her.

    All six are very solid, reliable hounds. I confess maybe I'm "too city", but I get uneasy using greys to hunt coyotes. Most of my friends that have them treat them like I do, make "bubble" dogs of them. They tell you when they're adopted to not let them out in the heat nor in the cold. The greys are so happy when we buy into that theory. They love being couch potatoes, literally, on the couches and beds.

    But the dogs that are racing are usually treated like cattle, put out in big pens without much shelter. That blew my mind when I first saw it.

    We've adopted out some greys who had been used as coyote dogs, and they, too, seem to be pretty peaceful in homes. But I wouldn't want any kid to step into a large enclosure with any breed dog. The pack mentality could take over.
    Don't think I was into the hunting either till my grandpa told me that the coyote was "the big bad wolf" that tried to eat Little Red Riding Hood...lol

    Yep...that is exactly why I was in trouble for going in the pen!

    I was told by my State Farm agent that Cocker Spaniels are on the "no no" dog list. My agent also told me that you assume more liability when you post a sign that says "Beware of Dog"...because you are admitting that the dog is dangerous....hmmm....kind of makes you scratch your head in confusion, huh??? It ranks up there with the burglar that can sue the homeowner if the burglar gets hurt while robbing said homeowner's home! Go figure!
