Pit Bull Gratitude

I was so proud to be a part of a community that celebrates Pit Bull Awareness Day. On this day, pit bull lovers turned out to reverse the unfair stain on the reputation of this most loyal and affectionate of breeds.  

For her part, Sandy turned out with another participant--a pit bull in a hound suit, named Copper--for an adoption event where she got to do her favorite thing. 

Lots of opportunities to do that favorite thing of hers, and lots of friendly people who didn't seem to have gotten that ill-conceived memo that said something about pit bulls being...what was it? Dangerous? Something like that? Hmm. 

No applications for Sandy, just a chance to show off another little example of her reputedly vicious breed. 

Meanwhile, a certain other pit bull did have a chance to connect with a potentially significant person in his life. What will come of this meeting? That remains to be seen....

  1. What a great event! It's wonderful to see children getting to enjoy them and hopefully change some peeps notions about them!

  2. Looks like a great event. Hopefully these events will change peoples' perceptions.

  3. This is a good way to spread the word about pitties. Our friend is very involved with a Pit rescue
