On this show, Lori was joined by author Ken Foster, who discussed the Pit Bull in our society. In I’m a Good Dog: Pit Bulls, America’s Most Beautiful (And Misunderstood) Pet, Ken reviews the history of the breed, explores how where pit bulls have been part of our culture and dispels common misperceptions about them. The book is richly illustrated, mostly with photos, and contains many fascinating tidbits about bulls at work, at home and in the spotlight.
More about the book and the author here.
Also, how does Peter do on the presidential pet quiz? Could you do better?
And an update on breed specific legislation (Miami Dade just upheld a 23 year old ban on pit bulls), and hot news items.
Thanks for listening. Have you read any of Ken’s books? What’s your opinion on breed specific legislation which bans so-called dangerous dogs? What do you like or dislike about pit bulls? Leave your comments!
