They are cheap — you don’t have to pay cash, just kibble.
You don’t have to leave out a bowl of M&M’s because chocolate is bad for dogs.
If intruders come to the door they may very well be scared off.
But there are a couple of things a pit bull can’t do. They can’t read stories or change diapers. They can’t dial 911. They can’t feed the kid. And probably a few other things.
This is probably why, although economical, most people would not let a pit bull babysit. However James Irvine, pictured, allegedly did just this according to deputies in Flagler County Florida who report that he left his girlfriend’s 10-month-old baby alone and went to a bar. After the 41-year-old did not answer repeated calls from his girlfriend she returned home and found Irvine trying to get back in the house. Cops say he claimed it was all good because the baby was not left alone as he stationed a pit bull outside the baby’s door.
Bonus points: The report says his girlfriend found him urinating on himself. When your boyfriend needs diapers more than your baby — that’s a dealbreaker, ladies!
