We're on our first Ænglish Bulldog.
I do not believe the hype about Pitbulls and thing that it comes completely down to their upbringing. Dogs that are improperly trained and socialized will show heightened levels of aggression; that is something that crosses breeds. For example, my wife's Pomeranian is 100x more aggressive than my father in law's 2 Pitbulls, and her tiny 10lb dog terrifies those hulking beasts. Why? The Pom is more aggressive because my wife didn't train her properly and she never received adequate socalization.
The minstrel boy to the war is gone,
In the ranks of death ye will find him;
His father's sword he hath girded on,
And his wild harp slung behind him;
"Land of Song!" said the warrior bard,
"Tho' all the world betray thee,
One sword, at least, thy rights shall guard,
One faithful harp shall praise thee!
