These dogs have been breed for years to be fighters. Ask your veterinarian if they have any special considerations when treating pit bull dogs. You will probably find that they muzzle them before any treatment and some still try to bite. It is a case of improper breeding and idiots that own them.

I am surprised that The Albany Herald di not mention that at one time it was a drop off point for news papers and at times there were a bunch of paper boys there getting their papers for delivery.

Two people have died, one of them a small child and all you people are concerned with is their welfare check. For years I have avoided any truck with this companied name on it, they seem to me to be the most reckless, inconsiderate truck drivers in this area.

I want to be a consultant for the city of Albany! Only problem is my suggestions would not acted on as public hangings of elected officials is against the law. Oh well perhaps they will pay me a couple hundred thousand to feed the fish at the Riverquarium.

How many people do you know that own a Taser ? Perhaps a Ninja sword or a long pointed stick would have done the job also. That was a dumb statement on your part.

Number one, the puppy and it's mother should have been under control by the owner. Number two, he should have fired the warning shot into the ground not into the air. Number three, I believe he was concerned that the fighting dogs could have harmed a person in this fight. Number four, have you ever tried to pull a pit bull off another dogs that it has attacked, impossible. I probably would have done the same thing except no warning shot.

The subject of Pit Bull dogs comes up often. Why doesn't the Albany Herald send a reporter to interview several vets on the subject and punish their responses. I do not mean one or two vets interview five or sin or more. Then do not change or edit their pertinent remarks. If you guys can not do it I will gladly donate my time and efforts to do the story. Perhaps that would give the general public an insight into these dogs and the problems they seem to cause.

Oldguy 1 year, 2 months ago on New law will 'double tax' auto leases

Do I understand this correctly. If you buy a new car you pay our local and state tax of 7% then when you also pay this new tax of 6.5%. That comes to 13.5% tax on a new car. Is that correct? If that is the case it will be a very negative effect on new car sales and hurt dealers that are already having problems.
