Back in November we learned of the dog dilemma faced by Mark Buehrle‘s family. They have a pit bull, but Ontatio has outlawed pit bull ownership. This meant either getting rid of the dog or Buehrle’s family not joining him in Toronto when the Blue Jays’ season starts.
Jerry Crasnick reports that the family is going to leave Mark on his own:
Mark will spend his 14th big league season in Canada while Jamie lives more than 800 miles away with 5-year-old son Braden, 3-year-old daughter Brooklyn, Slater and the family’s three vizslas, Drake, Diesel and Duke. As the family settles in for spring training in Dunedin, Fla., Buehrle is struggling to accept the idea that togetherness is short-lived and he will be coming home to an empty house in April.
Pets can be well more than pets to some people like myself. They are family members.
Ontario outlawed pitbulls?? what?? i cant get past this partYep. There are still people stupid enough in this world to think that most or all "power breed" dogs are menacing killers.
A friend of mine has a pitbull that's afraid of his own shadowA sad but good example Bulldog. My under-educated $ .02 guess on this would be that the dog was abused early in its life. I know my dog picked up some bad habits and traits in the year he was alive before we got him, and some still register 9 years later, no matter how well we treat him.
I don't get it.....sorry.....I don't.What part exactly? I will help if I can.

Welp, everything, to sacrifices so much for a dog. Sorry, to me a dog is a pet. Nothing more, nothing less. Doesn't mean I want them to be beaten or being abused, or anything like that. But, they are just a dog.Fair enough sir. To each their own.
