13. Most news stories carrying "pitbull" stuff, the dog is NOT a pitbull
OMG! A BIG headed dog is headed my way! OMG! It's a PITBULL!!! No, it is a big headed dog. Being the owner of a big headed dog, I get tired of people asking if he is a pit bull and having to explain that he is a rottweiler/gold retriever cross. I really wish that news media would get their act together and not attribute big headed dog stuff to pitbulls.
