Thank You Letter :: Colleen Lynn

Dear Colleen Lynn,
I am writing to you because I want you to know that you bring a great service to humanity. It is because of you and DogsBite.org that I was able to heal through a very traumatic event where my two dogs were attacked simultaneously by two pit bulls on a mountain trail. If it weren’t for DogsBite.org, I would have had a much more difficult and alienated road since my attack. My mental health definitely suffered for a period of time after the attack. Over time, I was able to heal my heart and I attribute that healing in a large way to you.
I wanted to take the time and thank you deeply. You helped me in a way that many family or friends could not. You helped save me from many dark places by shining light into my circumstances. I had never witnessed such wanton mindless violence before in my life. It changes a person. Your website helped to keep me in the light. I want you to know that. From the bottom of my heart I’m grateful to you and the endeavor you have taken on. Please know that it is having a deeply positive effect in not only showing the truth, but in helping people like me to heal. Please stay strong and know that many people out there keep you in their prayers so that what you have created will continue to go forth and help people. Blessing to you. Thank you. – Victor, California.

Dear Colleen Lynn,
I just ran across your site and wanted to let you know how happy I am that someone is compiling this information. About 20 years ago, a pair of loose pit bulls killed our beloved Scottish terrier by literally pulling him apart, and then they attacked my husband when he tried to defend our dog. We asked our City Council to ban pit bulls, but the usual pit bull supporters were able to sway their vote. My city still has no protection from pit bulls. Thank you for your efforts. – Carol, California

Dear Colleen Lynn,
Thank you for being the voice for so many! I recently found your page while searching for dog bite statistics. Fortunately, I’ve not been a victim of these vicious maulers. I’ve always been leery of them, however. I’m so grateful to have so much information at the tips of my fingers! This is a public safety issue, and I’m thankful for the voices raising the alarm, and the daunting task of trying to educate people and raise awareness. Thank you so much for all that you do! – Rebecca, Oklahoma

Dear Colleen Lynn,
My friend recommended your site after my attack. It meant so much to me that someone was doing something to enlighten the public about this menace. Now I am approaching the one year anniversary of my own attack. Though my injuries have healed, the inner scars remain deep. I still walk, but I don’t get the same enjoyment out of it. I carry a golf club and tell everyone I see walking, pushing a stroller, or walking a small dog to take heed. I have been successful in getting two of these dogs removed from rental properties once I notify the landlords of their liabilities.
I am so proud of you for standing up bravely against the pro-pit bull people. I will continue to follow your site and support you 100%. I am so grateful for all that you do. You give comfort and compassion to many Colleen. Good for you! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. – Katherine, Ohio

Dear Colleen Lynn,
I just found your site last night (following some links after reading about the most recent tragic child death from a pit bull in Wisconsin) and have been scarcely able to tear myself away to take care of necessaries such as sleep, shower, etc.!
I want to thank you for your excellent site. As a dog lover and rescuer, I have been troubled about what to make of these powerful animals called pit bulls.
Thankfully, I have never been attacked by such a dog. But I have developed a deep apprehension of this dog’s predisposition to attacking other dogs, and their ability to inflict devastating harm.
I want to say again how grateful I am to see a voice of reason and sanity address this very troubling scourge in our society in such a straightforward, well-researched, and articulate way.  – Sue, Wisconsin
