Any one red the book? It's a horrible book. It is full of things like this "I feel compelled to dispel the enduring â€œNanny Dogâ€ myth. Eventually, some pro-pit animal rights group, or Jon Stewart, or Tia Torres, is going to get sued for perpetuating this incredibly irresponsible and dangerous myth. Some person, somewhere, is going to read or hear (or for the love of God SEE on a TV show) some â€œexpertâ€ extolling the virtues of pit-bulls as â€œnanny dogsâ€ and they are going to adopt a sweet pit bull, and that pit bull is going to maul their child, or the neighborâ€™s child, or someoneâ€™s grandmother. How do I know? Because it happens all the time, but no one has blamed the animal rights groups yet (although there have been a handful of recent cases of animal shelters being sued for failing to disclose a pit bullâ€™s violent history). No one is certain where this â€œnannyâ€ myth came from."
