McDonalds launches a radio advertising campaign for its new Chicken McBites, we must stand firm in defending a very common punching bag, the Pit Bull.

We have seen such unbelievable disdain towards this breed of dogs for many years now. In recent memory, one thinks of the horrific dog fighting rings, such as those brought to the public’s attention by reformed animal abuser and overpaid football star, Michael Vick. Here, his Pit Bulls were raised in hostile, purposely violent and very aggressive environment. Locally, on Long Island, we have seen Pit Bull breeding outlawed, further adding a dangerous and negative stigma to this breed.

Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker.

I told the family we couldn’t do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home. Continue reading A Dog’s Purpose? (From a 6-year-old)
