In Defense of the Nanny Dog

Love this image of a little kid with his nanny dog (pit bull) on a cart pulled by two goats!

We have a nanny dog.

Never heard of that? Oh … maybe it’s because you know them as pit bulls. Our 100 lb. love-muffin is exactly the kind of dog we need to have around children. Edgar is gentle and loving. He’s inquisitive and nosey. He’s big and goofy. In short, he’s just the kind of dog that’s great around kids.

Don’t believe me?

Check this out:

In temperance tests (the equivalent of how many times your kid can poke your dog in the eye before it bites him) of all breeds the most tolerant was the Golden Retriever. The second most tolerant was the pit bull.

I can’t wait to introduce our nanny dog to his new charge.

  1. This is exactly why I disagree with breed bans. I’ve never been bitten by a rottie or a pit bull but I do have a scar I got from a datsun. More people get bit by black labs but you never hear those stories.
