always writing about how I never wanted a pitbull, but after meeting Miss M I was completely won over and I never looked back.
But that isn't where the story ends.
When we were just talking to our friends over at Two Kitties, One Pittie, we realized that in many cases while we love having pitbull-type dogs, our extended families might not understand our choices.
Little known fact: I actually started this whole blog to prove to my parents we made the right choice adopting pitbull-type dogs.
My parents live in a city where there are always negative reports of pitbulls in the media, and they couldn't believe I actually made a conscious choice to own pitbulls. They weren't able to meet our dogs for 2 years. My mom was quickly won over, and calls Mr B the gentle giant. Though my Dad admits he is still wary of them.
Just curious, what was everyone else's experiences when the family weighed in on your choice of dog? Were they automatically accepting? Did it take time to win them over? Were they never won over?
