Good for you. I didn't. I'm not sure where I'd learn it. I don't think a lot of non-dog-people know.

If you lived in my neighbourhood, you'd know. Lucy's dog walker is a retired teacher, and he makes a point of telling people who wonder about it. It's a very good project, in that it's something you can teach kids to look for, and respect.

I assumed a yellow ribbon dog was a canine veteran with ptsd.

That would be Lucy. I was owner #4 and she'd been in the pound, twice, when I acquired her at 18 months. At 3 years old, she unfortunately suffered a very bad crush fracture of a leg, which resulted in many months of pain, vet visits, rehab.

She's all PSTD. I do what I can to keep her calm, but as a somewhat naturally anxious person, we're quite the challenging pair. We should probably both wear yellow ribbons.

Some dogs are deliberately weaponized. That would be hard to prove unless there was a problem though. I agree about licensing. Then there's combat or police dogs for example. They are trained differently.

And quite frankly, they're specific dogs usually. I have cousin in England who has recently acquired a Belgian Malinois pup (a Belgian Shepherd). Look it up; for training and agility tricks, they are frigging amazing.

This particular cuz is a very experienced dog owner, and she's a Cub leader, so little Tully (rapidly huge Tully, lol) is growing up with proper respect for "littles" and tons of positive training.

I read that pit bulls are bred to fight, have a high pain threshold and are known to even keep fighting when their skull is fractured. To get them to release their grip, people use a stick to pry the mouth open. They also bite differently, causing more harm. Talking about predisposition.
My friend, who works with kids in “ at risk” families says, all of her families that are involved in drugs have pit bulls- it keeps people away.

I ran across this personal piece morning about living with ageing dogs.
The page wasn't a paywall for me and I could read it. Hope that's the case.

There is a pattern and always some exceptions ...

Exceptions mess up the institutional status quo in their fixations ...

So the trick with the Globe is that you get 10 articles a month, but articles marked with an icon of a key are subscriber-only. Those are usually opinion pieces, Report on Business analysis, and that sort of thing. I have to keep it in mind because I am a subscriber so have make sure I don't post "key" articles here or other forums.

Thanks. Won't be at all offended if you need to remove it.
