a star is born

Unfortunately, we had a dog attack here in South Carolina last week and a woman was killed. The dog was believed to have been a pit bull. The whole situation was absolutely horrible, and my heart goes out to the woman's family.

But I'm incredibly grateful to Stewart Moore and WIS-TV for allowing my friend and dog trainer Teoti Anderson to come on their morning show last week to discuss dog aggression, how to protect yourself in the event of a dog attack, AND why breed specific legislation doesn't work. She also wanted to show viewers that pit bulls can be great dogs, and so she asked to borrow my man Quincy! In the wake of this sad tragedy, I was grateful that WIS was eager to show the softer (and more accurate) side of pit bulls.

Please forgive the terrible video quality. WIS didn't provide the clip online, so I literally had to record it by playing it on my TV and then recording it with my camera.

Quincy was a natural, and I hope he won over the hearts of everyone watching. I can't see how the viewers couldn't help but love him! And Teoti did a great job as well. The only problem now is that I'm afraid the fame might be going to Quincy's head:

He definitely looks like a star to us. Love the shades!
We have always thought owners & breeders have a lot to do with the way the dog is.

I think that's really great the news station actually wanted to show the other side of the story. Here in Chicago the Chicago Tribune has run articles with pit bull in the headline and only quietly retracted them later that it was another kind of dog. Quincy is so cute...he reminds us a lot of our Mr. B.
