Dogmen Personalities.

 Over the years I had the pleasure to meet a lot of different kind of people
 who own the American Pit Bull Terrier.
 Some were quite important, others of lesser knowledge and fame.

 I have seen many different styles of behavior.
 Their styles varied by nature of their interest.

 If they were just a pet owner, theirs were of ah of famous people and were a sponge for information about the breed. Often quite nice if you're willing to stand there let them milk you of a life time of knowledge and information. If you weren't, then their personality was of jealousy and bitterness.

 If they were exhibitors of legal means, such as conformation shows etc., often theirs are petty and jealousy of about everyone who won over their dogs or got more attention.
 They would hang on every word of a person of importance, then misconstrue their intent to belittle or discredit, or apply the importance of what was said depending on which way the words wind would flatter or offend them. Either way the wind blew, the words were always exaggerated.

 Now if they are competitors of illegal intent, EVERYONE's dogs were the best that ever look through a collar and everyone else's has never done nothing like theirs!
 My favorites are the clowns who brags on their bloodline they own but has never done anything themselves to add recognition to the line.
 But yet sets in judgment of dog people who have!
 You have risked it all by putting it on the line.
 "Remember the next best thing to playing and winning is, playing and losing, but you have to play to win."
 Not be a coward and just set of the sidelines and talk smack!

 Or leaches who are hang-arounders of the true campaigners and
 make like they were part of the main core of that posse.
 When a person is shooting off their mouth in public, you can be sure the person they are talking about,
 they have never rang their phone...

 Now if they are a breeder or just plain peddler, there are many different types of personalities.
 There is the mild manner type, polite and courteous but doesn't know much or able to give much information about what they are selling because they truly only in it for the bucks.

 Then there is the slicker type, hey buddy, ole pal, old friend of mine and you only ever talked to them once before on the phone for a couple of minutes and you would think they feel like life long pals.
 They try and make you feel easy about parting with your money to them for anything they are selling no matter what the quality is.

 The best I've saved for last and I think most know why. Smile
 There is the direct type of personality.
 So blunt almost rude.
 Short and simple that you think their must be something wrong because they didn't try and play suck ass to you because they don't breed dogs for living. They know what they have done with the dogs and they know the truth and if asked will give it no matter if it is what you wanted to hear or not!

 They are the type who has a life time of knowledge with the dogs of hands on experience and not something they read in a book and sure to hell don't want some greenhorn sitting on the sidelines correcting them about things the greenhorn has no first hand knowledge of.

 The type of dog person who's life lessens in the dog game came hard with no help from anyone.
 Paid their dues by being ripped off, lied too, stolen from, cheated, often fighting off attempts of being discredit by every wannabe who is jealous of what they hadn't done in their life time and the people the person knows and places he has been and the things he has saw and done....
 He has to deal with every hater who has never done as much or got the recognition or fame as he has.

 This kind of breeder knows what he knows and don't take shit from no one and doesn't play kiss ass to anyone. Game as his dogs and the history of the breed.
 He is the type of gamedog that doesn't come from around behind and attack the stifle like a cur, he will face fight you and keep it where the action is and be right in front of you at all times!

 The APBT dog world is of your choice. You pick what kind you like, then live with it....

 The library books clearly states APBT or they weren't collected.
 The main library interests, was never of books about any breed or
 type of dog which may resemble the APBT of the past or present, from this country or any other country.
 The library does have books of other breeds of dogs associated with the breed of APBT,
 example AST, SBT, BT, etc., these books do state the type of breed.

Announcements. / Ironline's Name and Dogs.
« on: December 19, 2015, 12:28:18 PM »
Ironline name is copyright. No one has the right to use it without our written permission.

 Only recognized dogs, are the dogs purchased directly from Ironline Kennels.
 As stated in our Policy & Guarantee;
"We can only be responsible for dogs purchased directly from us, by the people who bought them, not dogs sold under our name!"
 As in the case recently by some people in Alabama.

 Dogs not bought directly from and/or bred by us, are not recognized Ironline Dogs.
 We do not recognize people's sale of dog/s claiming to be Ironline Kennels bred.

 For dogs to be straight "PURE" Ironline Kennels dogs (meaning at least 4 generations) they must only be from Suzie Que, Mitzie & Maxillian.
 All the rest are considered line bred dogs.

In case anyone has missed this in public magazines, look in the right lower corner for the copyright mark.

Once again it can be seen:

Announcements. / Origin of the name Iron Mike.
« on: December 19, 2015, 12:24:46 PM »
The nickname Iron Mike isn't a handle from owning dogs.
 It was a nickname from playing football in school.
 At a very young age I have been over 6 feet tall.
 But I didn't have the weight to play lineman.

 In basketball I could always touch the rim but like most white guys, Laughing
 I couldn't continuously play a high level game above the rim.
 But in football it was very easy just to lay the ball up in the air
 and I was able to bring it down over the defensive backs.

 Because of my size, I often played tight end
 but I also would play in motion as a flanker or the third wide receiver.
 I wore the same number as Mike Ditka
 and because my bread and butter sport was football,
 I received a nickname from the famous Iron Mike.
 One other reason is because I played two way football.
 I also play defensive end.

 Later on in dogs the name just stayed with me.
 Ironman was a handle from which an Ironworker and a bloodline coincided
 and so this is how that handle was created,
 but this isn't the case with Iron Mike.

 So in the future when you see anonymous poster, posting the name Iron Mike,
 they're not just posting a dogman's "handle", in truth,
 it is avail attempt to dry snitch a person's name out.
 In this case, mine... Twisted Evil

FAQ / Pens compared to Tie Outs.
« on: December 19, 2015, 12:12:38 PM »
Special interest groups like PETA (or any other of the new names they use, because of the bad press PETA is receiving) and other allege communist, drug and terrorist funding groups, are trying to have anti-tethering laws passed.

 Their claim is, chains makes dogs vicious.
 The problem with this theory is whether or not it is a social behavior or hereditary problem.

 Vicious dog behavior is greatly debated on, how this is created and why does this behavior appear.

 It is basically the same debate in humans that are murders, are they born that way or are they a product of their environment?

 So does chains make dogs vicious?
 Not by simply being placed and left on a chain.
 If the hereditary fault is within the genetic makeup of the dog then it can manifest itself.

 Physical abuse, whether on a chain or not, it has been known to create ill-temper dogs.

 So what does these special interest groups suggest?
 1 hr. a day on the chain, 3 hrs off.
 No more then the total of 3 hrs on the chain for the whole day.

 So what does this leave, what the special interest groups call irresponsible owners?
 They will go out and buy cheap crates and pens and put them in an area where if they soil the area, the owner won't have to smell or deal with it.
 Not to mention the concrete pens the dogs will freeze in when it comes winter. Concrete gets as cold as its environment.
 Pens, dogs can escape from by digging or climbing out of. Or pressing on the latch hard enough until it turns and gives way.
 Because this only address tethering, not penning of a dog.

 Will government officials allow these fanatics play them as stooges?
 Or will they keep the best interest of the dogs in mind?

 Will they listen to the pro of tethering after they listened to the "con" job just ran on them?

 The pros to tethering:

 Keeps the dogs safe from interacting with other dogs where an altercation might arise.
 Keeps them from roaming and being a menace and destructive to personal property and physical harm to humans.
 Great for exercise. More square foot area then a pen.
 Cleaner then pens because ground allows drainage un-like concrete where water and the snow liquidates the feces, which in turn, soils everything in the pen area.
 Concrete pens are very cold and hot, depending on the season, and extremely hard on the joints, feet and bones of the dog.
 The dog becomes extroverted. Pens make a dog introverted. Pens make a dog be consumed in their own little world and takes on the behavior of a caged animal.

 These special interest bleeding hearts try to convince government officials tethering makes dogs human aggressive because they are deprived of food, water and housing. This simply is not true. Some cases this has happened but it has also happened INSIDE the home! Often dogs tethered are in better health and physical fitness then a dog kept in a house. No one can deny being out doors is healthier for animals then being kept in doors. Dogs need vitamin D to retain calcium for strong bones and healthy coats. This comes from being in sunlight. Most responsible owners who tether dogs have them equipped with automatic feeders and water. Insulated dog house and bedding for the change of the seasons.

 These practices fall under animal well-fair not under animal rights. God's will, Man was given dominion over all plants and animals on earth to do with as mankind sees fit. Only a non-Christian would want animals with equal rights as humans. Laws and life style where man is subservient to animals or of animal worship.

 It is the responsibility of government of the people of the United States to protect the Bill of Rights of human beings of this country where laws are not passed to superseded the rights of the people. KEEP PEOPLE FIRST!

 Dear (name of rural landowner)


 We purchased some excellent No Trespassing signs from the National Association of Rural Landowners and wanted to share the information about them with you. If you own an acre or more, you need these specialized signs. With the proliferation of government agents, letting them know with these powerful signs they are not welcome on your property without permission, could very well save you from serious fines and penalties that would be assessed if they trespassed on your property and found code violations. Not only is Big Brother watching you, they are trespassing on your land without permission, all over America.

 NARLO has indicated to us that should a government agent enter your land with these signs displayed, they are guilty of trespass and can be brought up on civil or criminal trespass charges, depending on the circumstances. NARLO went on to say that In some courts, the judges will waive any fines and penalties levied by government, if the government agent trespassed on your property in the presence of a No Trespassing signs.

 You can order the signs from the NARLO website (, or by using the attached order form. Your land may be your largest asset. It is certainly worth the cost of these signs to protect that asset from government interference and abuse of your constitutional rights?
