Jonathan Kay: Even the ultimate dog-lovers hate pit bulls

    This week, NPR had a story out of Texas about an entrepreneur who's built a massive hangar-sized indoor dog playground, so pet-owners can drink lattes while their canines romp around in air-conditioned comfort. She's even hired four guys to break up dog fights. The story isn't particularly interesting — just another tale of childless yuppies fawning over their animals as if they were baby boys or girls. But I was fascinated by one particular detail: The dog-loving staff who run the place have banned pit bulls.

    This is significant because many of the pro-pit-bull types — who complained noisily when Ontario's Dalton McGuinty moved to ban pit bulls way back in 2004 — have argued that ignorant politicians and other assorted non-dog-owners just didn't understand how cute and lovable their pit-bull puppies are, trotting out statistics showing that 4 out of 5 pit bulls don't go ape-crap and tear off people's scalps on the drop of a hat, or whatever.

    Well, now we see that bona fide dog lovers — with a capitalist, profit-seeking motive to allow any and all dogs into their facility — have chosen to ban this awful breed. What's the fang lobby going to say to that?

    I say they can keep their stupid air conditioned "dog park". Like any responsible APBT owner would ever actually take their dogs there anyway.

    I third the notion! No difference between that and any other dog park.

    I wouldn't go there and support them, even if they offered to pay me $100,000.00, regardless of how much I may need the money!!

    grrrr, some people make me sick!!! I'm the world's biggest dog lover (ask any of my friends or family), and while I may not choose to own certain breeds, I don't hate any breed... I've been bitten 5 times (4 that I remember), one I don't. The 5 dogs in question were a Chihuahua (I was little and don't remember it), Lab (I was about 8 and came up on the dogs blind side to "surprise" him with my visit), Shepherd (attacking Mollie), my Shih Tzu (numerous times, he's just really snappy) and Mollie (when I stuck my finger in her mouth trying to pry it open to break up a fight... circa break stick.... and knowledge! ;) ) I don't hate the breed of any of the dogs that bit me, as 2 of the bites were really my own fault.
