G-d, I'm getting really sick pitt bulls and the professional athletes who feel the stupid need to own dogs that require diligent care, constant companionship, and intelligent treatment that they are almost always unable to give by the demands of their profession. And with a young son in the mix? I hope and pray things work out for the young son of Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison, who was in the news recently for not attending the White House ceremony as SB champions. Get a lab or something safer. I own a golden retriever (my third) and a chocolate lab. Family safe for my four children 10 and under. When I'm retired I hope to own dogs that I would never consider with small children. And my wife says I have no common sense! Apparently on this I do. How about a clause in players' contracts, like the common stipulation not to ride motorcycles--not that is worked for Ron Francis or Ben Roesthlisberger--to forbid them from owning dogs such as these?
