Reader: I've been bitten by a Chihuahua and a St. Bernard but never a pit bull

A post about a pit bull biting a toddler on the face in Commerce City inspired an explosion of comments -- hundreds of them. Most readers wanted to discuss whether the dog or its owner was to blame for what happened, with this one arguing that the breed has been unfairly maligned.

I've been around many kinds of dogs, a lot, and been bitten three times in my life. A chihuahua, an English Springer Spaniel and a St. Bernard each bit me (also roughed up by a Newfoundland once,) but never a pit bull. Over and over, they have defied their reputation to me and proved to be gentle, loving guardians.
