Okay, this is NOT all right. It's one thing to be wary of dogs, but it's another thing to shun pit bulls altogether, because a lot of them just want to be loved, even if they are dressed up like Satan. Like, for example, this pit bull named Dublin, who was SO EXCITED to get pet by all the trick-or-treating neighborhood kids, only to be let down when it turned out everyone was too scared of him to touch him.

Dublin's owner, William (@sinamonroll on Twitter), tweeted some pictures his mom sent him of his dog, wearing a costume and waiting for all the wonderful attention he'd get from the kids, only to have his little doggy heart broken when no one gave him any. The pictures hit such a nerve with social media users that William's tweet has been retweeted almost 50,000 times, and liked almost 110,000.

For this dog, Halloween is all about give and take—kids should give him pets before they take his candy. It's all he wanted. Just some pets. Please just pet him and tell him he's a good little devil.

Later on in the night I FaceTimed my mom and she said that people pet him because my aunt said you had to pet him to get candy. He got lots of pats by the end of the night, and was a happy camper.

Dublin's not the only pit bull who had to put up with this "everyone's so afraid of pit bulls" nonsense—writer Christine Nangle's dog was also forced to endure the breedist tendencies of people afraid of all pit bulls.

It's okay, doggos—people might be afraid of you, but there's no way you won't eventually win them over. Trust.
