Venting for a moment, on breed discrimination.
We own a pitbull; he is 60 lbs of goofy, mushy, slobbering muscle. No aggression towards humans and he is NEVER, EVER off-leash outdoors and NEVER loose in my front yard.
Today, I check my mail and find this note. Apparently the mailman couldn’t deliver yesterday because he claims my dog was loose. I specifically know this is BULLSHIT because:
The NYPD was doing a ceremony on my block yesterday. I was in my upstairs front window WITH MY DOG, watching the ceremony, when I saw the mailman walk by.
So, because my pitbull was in an upstairs window, and barked and whined at people walking by, he is a “loose dog” and it wasn’t safe to deliver my mail? This is some serious fucking bullshit. Any other breed of dog in the window would’ve been fine, I’m sure.
