Q: what “pit” means here?
“stop pit bulls from pulling”
A: Short answer: A "pit bull" (or "pit bull terrier") is a type of dog.
Long answer: I am not 100% positive about the etymology, however often dog breed names have something to do with what the type of dog was trained or used for by people in the past. For example, as I have read, the dachshund breed (literally meaning "badger hound/dog" in German), was used by badger hunters. The dachshund would chase the badgers out of their underground dens, then the hunters could hunt the badgers. In the case of a pit bull, I have read that the dogs were put into pits (a sort of dug-out, large hole in the ground) where they would fight or hunt rats and people would bet on the dogs. I am not sure that is true, but I have read it in a few online articles.
Q: After she dumped me I have been in the pits. Does this sound natural?
A: For most yes. "In the pits" could have been implemented like this: "After she dumped me I have been down in the pits" (or you could say "dumps"instead of pits which is a more used term with this context)
Q: Where is a pit of stomack? And when is this expression used?
