When I walk in the rink, I could see my breath, my heart was beating out of my chest. After I tie my skates, waiting on the bench I suddenly noticed I can’t skate. My dad said “I would be just fine just try.” Sitting on the bench, I felt as if was getting older waiting for the zamboni to finish cleaning the ice. As they opened the door my dad nudged me and said to me “go out and skate.” As I stepped on the ice crash I fell. My dad laughed at me. I said to myself “little fall is not going to stop me. Holding on to the board I started to glide and take strides. At that moment I realized that I was skating. I was so happy. I looked at the bleachers and I saw my dad he was smiling from ear to ear. As I skated for a little bit more making turns,
Pit bulls have been given a bad reputation over the years as untrustworthy, ill-tempered dogs, whose behavior may transform at an indiscriminate moment. While the slowly expanding owners of this breed continuously fight that reputation with cute posts, blogs, videos, etc. of their beloved furry baby just being your everyday companion. My Pit bull however, is not doing much for the cause. Her name is Lexi, she is a ten year old black and bronze brindle that has grown into a jealous, stubborn dog that has become disobedient in her old age. My dog, Lexi is on the fence for a bad reputation.
Pit bulls have been commonly mistaken to be vicious dogs. A good opinion,why pitbulls should be allowed to be kept as pets because they are very well behaved. Pit bulls are number two rated for the best behaved dog. Pit bulls are number one rated for the best family dogs. Pit bulls are extremely easy to take care of. Pit bulls are so nice that most people think that they could definitely beat a stuffed animal as being more likely to be cuddled with because they are so nice and soft.
An Anonymous author stated, “Pit bulls are beauty without vanity, strength without insolence, courage without ferocity, and all the virtues of man without the vices.” (Anonymous) As a Pit bull proprietor, I feel that Pit bulls are consistently confounded animals. As a matter of fact, any animal, pit bull or even a Chihuahua can be merciless or delicate. Additionally, adore and minding wins out with animals basically as it guarantees with people. Furthermore, affection is the item that makes an honorable or repulsive puppy and not their kind of breed or innate beautifying agents.
If you have a dog you can understand that they are protective, territorial, and sometimes even temperamental, but they need a best friend, to be taken care of, and they need a lot of love. Now, if you have a pitbull you know they can be a little more demanding, they need more than other dog breeds. Thanks to people who breed dogs for fighting have given pitbulls a bad name. Mostly everyone thinks that that is all pitbulls are, fighters, but they are so much more than that. Pitbulls are beautiful, compassionate, trustworthy dogs who have made a difference in many people’s lives, some bad but most good. Many people cannot stand pit bulls, and some people even hate them, even though many people believe they made good service dogs, some people allow pit bulls around their small children, and all pit bulls protect their owners.
Are pit bulls a vicious breed? It is said by many that pitfalls are killers, this stereotype has made a bad name for pit bulls. Not all pit bulls are dangerous. They are good dogs and should be more noticed for being good protectors, great dogs for kids, and for being wrongly accused for violence.

Just like you wouldn’t label a group of people on the actions of a few, we should not label dogs based a couple people’s bad experiences. To many countries, counties, and cities have blanket banned dog breeds based on warped views and stereotypes. Breed specific legislation is ineffective and dangerous.
When you think of dog attacks what is the first breed you think about? If I were to take a guess I would say that it is probably a pit bull. The media is not bad but it is hooked on only sharing the most negative and most popular topics and exploiting them and has guided you to believe that pit bulls are the most dangerous breed of dog. It is true that the pit bull is bred to be a very powerful dog, so that makes it easy for the media to target this dog to add attention to the pit bull. Pit bulls are just a type of breed and like all the other dog breeds they are bred and raised to do what they are needed to do. Even though they are seen as the only dog that attacks people and other dogs, it is not the only dog breed that has attacked people there is a lot of good history not known about the pit bull. I will be writing about pit bulls, the issues, the good, and how we maybe able to fix the stained name of the pit bull.
Victoria Wilcher was only 3 years old at the time when her grandfather’s three pit bulls attacked her. Now half her face is paralyzed and she has lost the use of one of her eyes. Per research by Merritt Clifton, the editor of Animals 24-7, an animal-news organization, “Pit bulls make up only 6% of the dog population, but they’re responsible for 68% of dog attacks and 52% of dog related deaths since 1982.” (Thomas, 2014) However, in Florida, a pit bull named Lucy saved her family from an abusive ex-boyfriend who broke into her home when she was away at hospital.
More times than not, the people who say that pit-bulls are bad never had a good encounter with a pit-bull, or they just go off what the media says about them and believe that what they say about the breed is always true. Worrall stated that there is “not one breed, it’s four. There’s the American pit-bull terrier, the American Staffordshire terrier,...the Staffordshire bull terrier,... and the newer breed called the American bully.” There is not one breed that is specified as a pitbull but all breeds are that share the physical attributes are all grouped into one breed. Chastity Pratt Dawsey said“some victims of pit-bull attacks and their supporters want Michigan to ban pit-bulls specifically.” There are people who are on both sides of
As I'm being lead into the dimly lit room, which to me is the death room where dogs are forced to fight against each other, the dogs fight until the death and the winners owner wins the big money. I can hear the loud shouts and the cheers of men and the high pitched screams of little children. I look around at the people in the stands growling and showing off my big sharp white teeth. I see other dogs. Inside i am terrified i don't want to have to go into that arena and attack another dog it isn't right but if i don't i will be beaten to death by my owner. As i look over to one of the pit bulls he is standing tall, Puffing out his chest to make him look bigger and even more terrifying. He's barking, showing off his big jaw and his mouth filled
“Well, I can’t turn back know” I exclaimed as I was walking to the ice. My mom was helping me on the ice, and then there I was on the hard and slippery ice. Standing on the ice, I quickly grabbed onto the boards and started to skate. I saw my legs moving faster and faster. “I’m doing
On the way to the tournament, I remembered back to when I was just 9 years old and the first time I learned how to roller blade. My mom bought my first blades. I put them on. I was scared at first, but I had to learn. I remembered going outside and sitting on the stairs thinking, “What if I fall? Well, of course I’m going to fall, this is my first time.” Even though
One sunny day, I was speeding around my court with my rollerblades. I went inside to ask my parents if I could go to my friend’s house, and they both replied, “Yes.” Halfway to his house, I tripped, and fell into the thin layer of grass. And this is when I recalled when I first started rollerblading.
