I’m so sorry… I too had a Lisa but his name was Cleland.. In my stupidity I let him down by giving him to a trainer. When that person was arrested for animal cruelty I rescued him for a second time. My guilt is forever burning.. What we learn from these kind of dogs most people don’t understand … RIP Lisa we all love you..and Cleland too..

I'm so sorry Wayne. I loved my pit so very much also even though she was extremely dangerous to other dogs. Had to protect her and them every moment. She gave me so much love πŸ’˜.

Not so simple. I too have lived with a killer for 11 years; my golden retriever Arwen. She killed her brother cat, Aladdin, out of the blue, as I watched from across the yard. She killed her sister house rabbit, Lola, with whom she lived for 4 years; why, that day, I don't know; how she got in her pen, I still don't know. She killed our alpaca, Tranquillo, with whom she had lived for 3 years; I came home to her guiltily wagging her tail, covered in blood, and Tranquillo with his face and anus ripped off, dying from shock. She would close her eyes and charge through the strongest Invisible Fence that was made, just to kill a duck or a chicken that left the pigyard and ventured onto the gravel drive. She attacked her little Boston Terrier sister, Bronte, so often out of jealousy, that Bronte developed Addison's, I believe from living in a constant state of fear. Arwen would become possessed by some primal drive, then when the attack was over, she felt terrible. Yet she was, and is, the kindest, most loving and loyal, dog to all humans. She has been a constant test of my commitment to her, to my control of my anger, and my ability to love her. Now she is getting old, weaker, passive, no longer aggressive, as if that persona has left. And she taught me the crucial lesson that unconditional love does not mean acceptance or tolerance of aggression - from any life form. Boundaries must be maintained. Yet to this day, Arwen is my best friend, and I hers. I have lost so many animal friends, Wayne, that I give you comfort with this assurance - Lisa is still with you, energetically. Pay attention and you will see.

Crying. Just emphasizes the cruelty that humans inflict every second of every day in a myriad of ways on the innocent, vulnerable, defenseless. Thanks for not giving up on her. Please pay back her love by rescuing another…

This is so beautifully written, Wayne, so insightful and true. And Brave. Lisa would be proud of you.

Animals are magical beings, the best guides we could ever find. They can love us and teach us in ways few humans could. People may think you rescued her but of course, you know she was the one who saved you.

She will see you in her next life.

Im crying too. I'm so sorry that Lisa's life was marred by men at her conception. She loved you purely and new no different way. It wasn't her fault she had that instinct, but man's. We ruin everything. It is very hard to love all men even after and especially after reading of her life. She became a sacrifice of dog fighters, a marked dog. Your pain and sadness are so great and I wish we could all become a salve for your grief. I'm sharing this for all the pitbulls. I was always fearful of them, but always ashamed of it at the same time. I see so many wonderful pitts at our park and they are all people pleasers. Craving love from all of us which we oblige them with. I wish you peace and love.
