When it comes to Bullies there’s one thing that everyone can agree on...they’ve got a bad reputation. But just like Joan Jett, the people who share their lives with these dogs just don’t give a damn. If you’ve never spent quality time with a Bully it’s easy to fall into believing the negative media coverage for these breeds, but ask anyone who’s spent more than ten minutes with a Bully...it’s all unjust discrimination.

I think we can all agree...there’s always that one neighbor who’s just a little off. If you’re lucky they’ll just ignore you and you can stare in bewilderment from a safe distance while they ramble on about whatever it is that’s got their panties in jumble today, to one of your other unfortunate neighbors. I am not so lucky. I am the unfortunate other neighbor. Continue reading
