I suppose ya’ll are going to say they were’nt trained right or the owners were somehow at fault…These were raised from pup’s, slept with them and lived in the house! Why don’t we just permit people to own Tigers & Lions that are well trained? There is no difference! Louisiana KNOWS it’s a SPORT DOG…bred for fighting…but they are just turning their heads to the TRUTH!!! That’s why we’re considered substandard amongst other states. I’m sick of having my animals killed by these dogs; who’s owners allow to ravage the neighborhood by night. I’m sick of Animal Control saying "If you did’nt witness it there’s nothing we can do" when I’ve got 2 cats 30′ up a tree with 2 pitts under them and 1 dead still warm on the ground!!! Now, that’s just plain WRONG!!! What happened to "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure"? Oh, did ya’ hear about the baby who had it’s foot eaten off by the "PET" Pittbull?….again here in Louisiana. Hey, I got it! All you Pittbull lovers move over here!
I used to work for a vet. I’ve been around lots and lots of dogs and their owners. Over and over, the owners of dogs I considered extremely dangerous were completely blind to or chose to be ignorant of the potential danger of their "pet". Once a tragedy happens it is too late. Purebred dogs are the product of generations of selective breeding for various traits. For example, every Border Collie I’ve been around instinctively wants/needs to herd, and will herd anything available, including small children. It is so much a part of their nature I believe it cannot be trained out of them. Pitts are bred to be aggressive tenacious fighters. I have never heard of anyone being mauled by a Golden Retriever. However, Pitts are on the news regularly for injuring and killing people. It is bred into them and anyone who owns one should face severe penalties for injury caused by them.
I have to make a Louisiana ornament (I’m from LA) and I need to pick a theme:
I know what symbols I can use for these, but I don’t know what supplies to use.
I’m in 8th grade so I want it to be nice, and not look like a printed something offline and stuck it on something.
I want to get a styrofoam ball put purple gold and greem glitter all over it and do festivals using:
and mardi gras
Please give me some cute ideas. and no ceramic because irt has to hang on a christmas tree and if it can’t hang i lose like 20 pts!!!!!
get mardi gras beads and use that as a garland around the tree. you should stick to one theme. i would use mardi gras so you could use little sequins, beads, and masks. good luck. Look for organza material and material with sequins on it to make you tree/ornament look sparkly
get a stryofoam ball. cover it with sparkly festive material. Then, across the ball of it, glue a mardi gras mask. for the string to hang on the ornament, use mardi gras beads. do the top and the bottom in sequins to cover up the top where the string was

~ There have been six separate national flags to fly over the state of Texas over the last 500 years. Texas was governed by Spain, France, Mexico, The Confederate States, The Republic of Texas, and of course, the United States of America. This fact is where the Six Flags theme parks got their name, being that the first of the chain was located in Texas.
~ Texas has more inland water than any other state in the continental US. Of these more than 6700 reservoirs, there is only one natural lake in the entire state of Texas. Caddo Lake, which is located on the Louisiana border, is the only water source that is considered a natural lake. All other “lakes” within Texas’ borders are either manmade or simply a part of a river.
~ Texas became part of the United States as a part of the treaty that ended the Mexican-American war in 1848. Texas gained its independence from Mexico in 1836, however the US Congress denied its annexation in 1844 because of the threat of war with Mexico. It was only after the signing of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo that the annexation of Texas was resolved between the two countries.
~ There have been 7 cities that served as the capital of Texas, though some only briefly. From 1836 through 1839, Columbia, Galveston, Velasco, Washington-on-the-Brazos, Harrisburg, and Houston all served as capital for a short amount of time. In 1839, Austin was named the new capital of the state and it remains there today.
~ Texas has more professional sports teams than any other US state, including: 2 National Football League teams, 2 Major League Baseball teams, 3 National Basketball Association teams, a Major League soccer team. an American Football League team, a Women’s National Basketball Association team and a National Hockey League team.
~ The largest city in Texas is Houston, with just under 2 million residents as of the 2000 census. There are several towns that make the claim of being the smallest in Texas, with a total of 26 incorporated towns and census-designated places claiming a population of less than 100 residents.
~ The state capital building in Austin was constructed in 1888 from Sunset Red granite, on a foundation of limestone. It stands 15 feet taller than the Capitol building in Washington, DC and has more square footage than any other state capital building in the United States.
