So, my son and his lovely girlfriend (24 and 20 respectively) have paid $800 for an American Pit Bull. Illegally, I might add (here in Qld). Do I say anything? Should I send him all the news articles about these dogs savaging their owners and others? When they say "it's not the dog, it's the owner" do I bring up the 92 year old lady who owned and lived with pit bulls and had her face torn off by one last week? He's an adult. I get that. He tried to tell me initially they were buying a shar pei cross. For $800? Yeah, riggghht. I didn't come down in the last shower. He's since confirmed its an American Pit Bull. Bred by "a mate" in Cairns. What would you do? Shut up? I'm not really good at that virtue.
