I can not even begin to tell you how ticked off it makes me when Pits and Rotties get
singled out as dangerous dogs.
Neither breed are dangerous unless in the hands of a dangerous owner.

I think the legislation thats being purposed is for Austin Proper. I`ll have to go look it up now but I had heard a few tidbits here and there about it.

Thank God I live in the middle of nowhere.

Actually, I think the biggest thing that is being proposed is lifting the state-wide Breed Specific Legislation ban. Currently, individual counties and cities can ban "dangerous dogs," but they can't ban a specific breed. However, if that statute gets repelled, I'm sure there are cities waiting on the sidelines to usher in BSL.

Keven, thanks for pointing this out, if it has made it on to the radio it is probably more serious than I thought. I'll go hunting for the stuff I read about general BSL and post it up. We may want to alert the TDHA to this situation and give them our support!

Courtney, this quote from the latest historical article we got certainly puts it in perspective:

"It’s wonderful work. I’d rather work hogs if I have a good dog than do anything else. They’re the smartest things you ever saw," said Jerry Freeman in a 1942 article from The Cattlemen "They have lots of vim, and want to do something all the time. If you keep them tied and don’t give them work to do, they will kill stuff, just because they want to do something."

Maybe with your crappy lease situation and a slow year for all hunters Luna just isn't working enough. I know there is a hog baying on Jan. 3 in Pearsall and Jan. 17 in McCoy, I might try to attend one if the weather is nice. Or did you decide to keep her exclusively on blood trails?
