I've always been of the opinion pit bulls get a bad rap.

I can still remember riding on the back of mine when I was 4 years old. I can still remember holding him in my lap on the way to the vet's office after he was bitten in the head by a snake.

And I remember crying the day I lost my best friend.

Any dog can be aggressive. And any dog can be not just man's best friend, but also to a tiny rabbit.

Just a reminder that dogs are fragile creatures, and they really can be special things to all of us.
