Chows have become "bad *** dawgs" for the bad *** crowd around my area, so you see a lot of badly bred and badly raised bad Chows around. BSL should stand for BreedER specific legislation.

the same thing happens in my area. when people ask what elliott is, they don't bat an eye at the Pit Bull part, but when i get to the Chow part they blanch. it's interesting. it seems that out here in the boonies, people don't have bad associations with Pit Bulls. they're plain old family dawgs.

And St. Bernards??? A dog bred to RESCUE humans??

yep. they're ginormous and in the past have not been bred for good temperaments. the breed went through a really bad stretch in the 70s-80s. it makes about as much sense as banning Pit Bulls, which were bred to be human tolerant and friendly.

Hey, you put an E in front of that LB. He had it coming!

well, he wasn't that evil at the time. certainly not evil enough to warrant the dog trying to harvest his eyeball! (the dog ended up puncturing ELB's eyelid.)

So, the dog took a not-so-evil little brother, gave him the evil eye and then turned him really evil? Now that merits banning!

I've only known one SB and one Newf in my whole life. They were the biggest dogs I've ever known, but also the most laid back. The newf was a retired show dog and was absolutely gorgeous as well as absolutely gentlemanly. I remember when a new person to the neighborhood was saying that Shane had been the dog to knock over a kid writing a bike. Nobody believed it. It turned out they were right. It was another big black dog, who, though not nearly as big as Shane, was a lot more energetic and territorial.

Umm, riding a bike.
