Uh I just bumped into this article that goes like:
“Did You Know That Pit Bulls Were Known As The Nanny Dog?” uhm..nope!
it continues like this:
“For many years (in the late 1800′s and into the early 1900′s) in America, Pit Bulls were known as “The Nanny Dog” and were often in charge of babysitting the children. If you wanted your children kept safe, you got a Pit Bull because they are so loyal and protective. Nobody’s gonna kidnap your baby when she’s curled up with a Pitty”
I don’t completely agree with the last sentence, cause nowadays they might knidnap both but…. this is truly unbelievable! I mean, not completely, because i totally believe it, so let’s call it amazing, isn’t it? And you know what? Actually i remember when i was a child we had a bull terrier and he also took care of me as a baby like when i was crying he would come over and give me kisses! When I think of this i start felling this little pinch in my heart again… but lets have a look at these vintage pictures as proof for those who don’t believe and as a delight for all the others!
