List of books and magazines owned by Ironline Kennels.
 One of the largest collection of American Pit Bull Terrier books and magazines.
 The main interest of this library was the breed of APBT.
 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.

 The collection of magazines aren't as large as others, but has some of the oldest.
 Our interest was more of books then magazines.
 Many of the magazines often appeared repetitive of the previous one.

I think I will do it in sections.
 The sections I will do first will be the fewest.
 The first section will be of reprints.

 The first and most noted person, who also did the best quality of reprinting and
 had permission from the publishers, was Pete Sparks.

 Published in 1953 Jack Jones. Reprinted by Pete Sparks 1957.
 Second reprint, 1977. Third Reprint, 1981.
 I believe this must be a third reprint.

The picture is Thomas McAllister the lead singer.
 Jerry plays lead guitar and songwriter.
 You name the axe player, Jerry has jammed with him, including me. Laughing
 Santana and all the rest.

25th Anniversary of Woodstock
 Jerry play lead in the Electric Ladyland-Tribute to Jimi Hendrix.
 If Jimi played it, so did Jerry and many more songs.
 Jerry has recorded 3 albums, this is one of them.

 BTW Jerry is a Pit Dog owner and has been for many years and we have traveled all over the US.

 If I can talk him into it, I want to use his studio where him and I record "All Along the Watchtower" for my website. Very Happy

Announcements. / Ironline's Name and Dogs.
« Last post by D.M. Norrod 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.
« Last post by D.M. Norrod 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
