Playboy article "PIT BULL"

Discussion in 'Feedback & Suggestions' started by Darkhorse6, Nov 1, 2016.

  1. I've always had dogs growing up, but never owned an APBT until I was 20 years old. I was pulling CQ (Charge of Quarters) duty one night at Schofield Barracks, HI. as an enlisted member in the US Army. CQ was pretty much boring, you sat at a desk for 24 hours answering the phones and maybe walk the halls to make sure all was peaceful after lights out. There was always plenty of reading material, back then we did not have Google, we had these things called "Magazines" and "Books". Anyways, I came across this Playboy magazine that was current for that particular month of March 1988 (That tells you how long I've owned and researched these dogs). The article in that Playboy magazine was titled "Pit Bull". I never heard of fighting APBTs until that article came out, I've been around pit bulls in Alabama and Louisiana, but never researched the breed. The article was about a black dog called Alligator. Alligator was being matched against a red dog Called Firecracker. Interestingly enough, was that the referee was name "Tudor", Hmmm! This was a fictional article written by Scott Ely. My question is has anybody read this article, and was this a true story, just perhaps, the names were changed?

    I have never red this story, plumbers alligator was born in 1971 and was owned by a hole bunch of dog men. He was the best heavyweight dog that ever lived in my books. His match weight mas 57-58 pounds and weighed 70lbs on the chain. He was a extremely hard mouthed dog and a wrecking a machine. Tudor of course is Earl Tudor. Both died before 88.

  3. This was my first thought of course but after reading about Plumber's CH Alligator. Some similarities in matching events, but not the same dogs or outcomes, perhaps the author pulled the names from one of Alligators matches.
