Thank You Letter :: Colleen Lynn

by colleen lynn.

Dear Colleen Lynn,
How can I ever thank you for helping me to speak with validation about the horrific danger and trauma of pit bulls. On April 8, 2015 two neighborhood pit bulls jumped our fence and mauled our beloved cat “Mew” to death. Your website gave me a voice, and I am working hard helping our city people to understand the reality of what we are dealing with in the small community of 7,000 people in Iowa. Our daughter loved her cat so much. We all loved her. Living in the aftermath of a pit bull is hell. What Mew went through is unspeakable. Then to see the hundreds of children and adults who have gone through the same horror is gut wrenching … I am sending a copy of an editorial I wrote and was printed in our hometown newspaper, The Press, Charles City Iowa. Thank you for giving me a voice and the facts and stories needed to help me make change. God Bless you, and thank you, thank you, thank you!! Your work is in my prayers. – Debra, Iowa

Thank You Letter :: Colleen Lynn

Dear Colleen Lynn,
Thank you for this site. I hope more people will read it and make wiser decisions about what kind of animals they choose to make a part of their families. Knowing what I know about how unreasonable people get when it comes to their pets, I can TOTALLY believe that you get hate mail. Don’t let it get you down! You’re doing the community a service. I love most dogs, but ever since one bit my face I am uncomfortable around them, especially when they jump up on me or get near my face. Dogs, which were once a source of joy for me, now scare me a little. People laugh at me when I get nervous around them, which makes me feel stupid and weak, like I’m the one with the problem. Your site makes me feel like I’m not alone.
Thanks again for publishing the truth about what certain dogs are capable of. Don’t let the haters get you down! – Jamie, Texas
