I am a loss for how you can say, "yes" and then go on to make it clear that you didn't get a word of what I said.

Clearly Mr. Santino was already in a depressed state which by definition hinders rational problem solving. So to suggest rational alternatives for someone who was not thinking rationally, is irrational.

As I stated before the conflict and the subsequent putting the dog down was not the underlying issue, simple the trigger that set his depressed mind and predisposed psyche down a suicidal path, just like any other depression based suicide.

It's sad that there are human beings out there who can't form normal human relationships that they have to resort to focusing all of their efforts on an animal. I lived in NYC and I wouldn't want pit bulls in my building.

Anyone who wants a pit bull is screwed-up to begin with.
Oh please your judgement is screwed up

Soap Star Nick Santino Takes Life Following Dog Euthanasia | Extra
People who haven't suffered a tragic incident in their lives don't understand grief. It's as simple as that. We weren't inside the mind of the deceased. Let it go. In the grand scheme of life, it's not important to the rest of us.

Seems a bit extreme and not well thought out on many levels.

#1-Why not move?
#2-Why not give the dog to someone temporarily?

This seems to speak to the irresponsibility and weird mental state of some pitbull owners.
You're taking the actions of one person and applying it to a whole group?
Really?
Please.

Wondering why the vet, didn't suggest other alternatives. Most vets I know won't put down a healthy dog, even a pit bull. He's neighbors should feel ashame!!
