DOnt ask a question you really dont want the answer to.
Shiggs,I wouldn't ask if I didn't truly want to know.
Now,I'll just say this,and I'll be done here unless things stay civil,which,by the way,I'm being sincere and civil when asking the question that I've asked. I'm pregnant,in pre-term labor,and not in the mood to be told what I do and don't want an answer to. If I asked,you can assure yourself that I'm not asking just to move my fingers around on a key board for no apparent reason. I'd really like to know,that's why I asked.
ABPT fanciers call that trait "gameness" and for many it is the essential quality of the breed. Sadly, the APBT's gameness is the result of hundreds of years of a cruel practice called "gametesting". A gametest is when the breeding stock is tested via a nasty dog fight and only the dogs that don't quit are bred (if they survive).
My dad is a hunter and hunts in Texas. Yes they do have a wild hog problem. He brings the meat home, as do all the other people that hunt there. Hunting means pursuing an animal for food. If the animals are left there, that is not hunting.

Game test: Testing the depth of a dog's gameness by rolling until completely exhausted then having the dog prove gameness by scratching to a fresh dog. Scratch: Rushing across the pit and taking hold of an opponent within 10 seconds (or an agreed count). A method to demonstrate gameness in the pit.

Rolling is when you put two dogs about th same weight against eachother in a pit. They fight and then after an allotted time they pull the dogs apart and pull em back to thier corners. If the test dog scratches ( or heads straight back to the other dog) it is considered game. If if doesnt its a cur.
I dont fight my dogs. I have never rolled any of them. Please quit assuming i do. Just because i know sometihng about it doesnt mean i do it.
Thank you for helping me to understand LOR(now I can't just say "Riley" anymore with two on here). I do appreciate your response and the link. I had a feeling that's what it had to do with,but wanted to ask,instead of jumping to conclusions. Again,thank you for the information.
