Well, we're not planning on adopting, like, tomorrow.  It could be years.  We just want to get the ball rolling.

I'm annoyed -- mostly by the fact that the nice lady (and she DID seem like a very nice lady, don't get me wrong) waited until she was an hour into her presentation before bringing up the pit bull thing -- but nah, I'm not devastated.  There are other agencies.  I wouldn't even rule out convincing someone at this agency to work with us.

We knew the risks going in when we got a pit.  We expected it would make it more difficult to adopt a human.  We'll keep trying, and, more, this is an opportunity to do some advocacy and try and change some minds.  We're already planning on trying to get her trained and certified as a Good Citizen.  And we've got photographic evidence of her playing with our two-year-old nephew and him seeming pretty happy and still in possession of all four limbs.

For adopting a sweetie of a dog.

And then a few days later we have our two-year-old nephew over and he decides to jam his thumb into the dog's eye.  She just sits there; not a peep or a movement.

I wish one of the people from that agency could have seen it.  I think I can safely say I am unconcerned that my dog is ever going to bite a child.
