My name is Gerard Spicer and I reside in the Denver metro area. I currently own a beautiful 80 pound pit by the name of Petey. Previously, I had owned a black & White one for 15 years named Mugsy. Like most people, I originally had preconceptions about the breed, but 15 years later I find myself enveloped in admiration and respect for them. My wife Alex now refuses to have any other type of dog as a pet. I started a website that deals with our personal fight against BSL. On the site I am offering an article I wrote for a local newspaper entitled "A Fall From Grace: The story of the Pit Bull" free for distribution to anyone wanting to promote the bully breed in a postive light.
