Katherine Myers chimes in: “I hope your genitals get gnawed off by a wild pack of fluffy, yappy, ‘beloved,’ ankle biting lap dogs!!!”
Many are Americans, tuned into pit bull websites. The cartoon was in response to an NDP MPP’s bid to reverse the province’s ban on the breed.
Incidentally, the couple behind the thug is Donato and wife Dianne, walking their Shih Tzus, Panda and Tybee.
Okay, so we’ve established pit bull owners are not all hulking men in camouflage and Hitler helmets. Some of them are hulking(ITL)women(ITL) in camouflage and Hitler helmets.
“You are a ------- moron,” he writes. “If I ever see you on the streets, I am going to knock your front teeth out.”
True, I once lunched with Ottawa socialite Marlen Cowpland, wife of the Corel software founder, and her pink poodle, Bunny, who was tucked away in her purse. Or was it a Maltese? Hard to tell when they’re dyed pink.
Just because poodles are airy-fairy, dainty, snooty, spoiled and chirpy, doesn’t mean their owners are the same.
Macho poodle owners have included John F. Kennedy, fitness pioneer Jack LaLanne, Pablo Picasso, Patrick Swayze, and Liberace.
And don’t generalize that hoity-toity blue-haired women have poodles. Consider these: Jaclyn Smith, Elke Sommer, Ivana Trump. Jane Goodall, Lucille Ball, Katharine Hepburn, Grace Kelly.
Yes, poodle owners are often as noble as their beasts. And as smart — second only to border collie owners. Pit bulls are down the list, just below dogfish.
So open your mind, Pistol Pete. Cast aside the bounds of bias. Your pit-bull-packing pals think Donato’s cartoon is “racist?!” Well, quit picking on poodles.
Look to your own dog: That rippling bundle of muscle, jaws and fangs bred to leap upon foes and tear them limb from limb.
So what if one study found pit bulls and part-pit-bulls accounted for 1,618 of 2,815 serious attacks on humans in North America since 1982?
Chihuahuas? Zip. Nada, though I bet that yappy Taco Bell mutt drove a few people to jump off cliffs.
Face it, pit-bullies. Your dogs give off the warm vibe of an AK-47. And you’re a little scary, too, judging by many of the e-mails.
