Pit Bull Attacks

Every summer there is a rash of pit bull attacks.  People who own pit bulls and dogs in period should be more responsible with their animals.  I think the owners of dogs who attack people or other animals when they're dog gets out should be fined and possibly even have charges filed against them.  Pit bulls are great at escaping. If your going to own one you have to be responsible for the animal and make sure there is no possible way the animal can get out without being on a leash.  Pit bulls can be a very dangerous animal. People need to wise up and start being more responsible for their animals. Once the dog has escaped and bit someone, the owner should no longer be allowed to own the animal.  After all, it is only a dog and when someones life has been put in danger then they no longer have the right to own the dog. Apparently, they are not responsible enough to own a pit bull. Dog owners period should be more responsible for their animals. I quit walking my dog around the neighborhood because there are too many dog owners who do not have the proper fencing for their dog and they can escape too easily .  I should be able to walk my dog without the fear of another dog coming after my dog or me. A few summers ago when I was walking my dog another dog jumped the fence and came after us. I had my daughter with me. Thank God, the dog didn't bite one of us. But, he was growling at us and if we had moved he would have. There's several houses around the neighborhood where there are dogs and the fencing is not secure enough to hold them in.  Either, they have built some make shift fence out of 2 X 4's and the boards are spaced too far apart, the fence is falling apart or it is not high enough for the type of dog they have. 
Just last week alone in Wayne County there were two separate occasions of pit bull attacks.  The animals are very strong and the owners under estimate the power the animal has.  Now a child will be permanently damaged for life and nearly lost his life because of an irresponsible dog owner.

Another Black Eye For Israeli Soldiers

 An Israeli soldier is in trouble for posting pics of herself on Facebook smiling while next to and in front of blind folded Palestinian prisoner.  Really, it is disrespectful. For all she knows that man can be innocent.  No one really knows. I'm not defending the actions of the prisoners.  But, you never know how many people are taken in as prisoners that are innocent.  Sometimes, they pull people in who they think may be able to give them information but have nothing to do with what they are being questioned for.  I defended the Israeli soldiers who broke out in a choreographed dance while on duty. You have to have a little fun now and then if your a soldier to keep your sanity.  But, I don't agree with degrading another human. Now, if the person has been found guilty of terrorism or a crime. Then they should be punished. Be smart and save the Facebook pics for more appropriate times. 
Seriously, when are people going to learn not to post things on Facebook that are going to get them in trouble later? People read the Facebook posts. Not only does your post go on your friends pages, but it is also is viewable by their friends who have commented on your post and so on. Eventually, someone is going to come across a post they are offended by and report it. Granted people need to find better things to do with their time than report people for their facebook posts, unless a crime has been committed. But, that is the way it is. Be smart and be careful about what you post. It may cost you your job or get you in legal trouble somewhere down the line.


My son had a doctors appointment this morning at 10:00 am for his vaccinations. Now, I had called to make an appointment for him at 9:15 and they told me to bring him in at 10:00. So, I rush around to get everyone out the door and have him there by 10 am.  Walk in the door and they say they can't see him until 1:00 now because the doctor had an emergency and her replacement won't be there until 1:00.  What kind of bullshit is that?  No phone call or nothing to tell me they changed his appointment and the doctors office is at least a 15 minute drive from my home.  I have been taking my children to this doctor for the past 11 years, they have my cell phone number.  Let a patient do a no show, no call and they would probably be trying to charge you. Most doctors offices require a 24 hour call in notice when cancelling an appointment or they will bill you for the office call. But, for some reason they aren't required to call you when your appointment has been changed at the last minute.  It would have been nice if she actually picked up the phone and called me to tell me the appointment was changed.  Maybe I hadn't left yet or even if I was driving I could have turned around before getting there, finding parking and dragging the kids inside only to find out his appointment was changed.  This only confirms my belief. Too many doctors think they are God and think they don't have to show common courtesy to their patients.  It's not the first time this doctor has pulled this.  There are other doctors in the office.  They should make sure they have another doctor on call to come in and replace the doctor who got called out on an emergency or at the very least pick up the phone and call you.  Because this happens way too much. The same thing happened over the winter when my son was sick.  They said she would be in, I drive him there when he was sick only to find out she got called on an emergency and I had to take him somewhere else. I really need to find another pediatrician.
