So thanks to the ignorant chatter of one Barbara Sharief (vice mayor of the Broward County Commission) there was a lot of talk recently about introducing a pit bull ban in Miami’s neighbor to the north.
This was wrong for more reasons than I can possibly list, including the categorical failure of these bans nationwide, the fact that Florida state law prohibits BSL (Miami’s was grandfathered in), the unnecessary cost to taxpayers, the fact that pibbles are absolutely sweet, adorbs and LESS aggressive than other breeds – and just plain stupidity. LUCKILY, Sharief pulled her proposal, but not after igniting public hysteria. Sorry lady, but we love our pit bull babies.
The least our overpaid public officials could do would be to invest in a little research before they start running their mouths.
Anyway, in the midst of all this absurdity, the Broward New Times wants to focus on the cuteness. Amen to that. So please send your pibble pictures to email@example.com. Only one email with fewer than five pictures, please.
So let’s all toast to the awwwwww-inspiring pibbles of South Florida. Don’t worry pups, we won’t let these Cruella de Vil-wannabes get you!
