Every month a Pit Bull Advocacy group that we are a part of, B-More Dog, ‘hosts’ a pit bull walk around the Baltimore Inner Harbor called Pits on Parade. This just happens to be about 1000 feet from our house… aren’t we lucky
ducks pits. So since the other human half of our household was working today, and since Lola is still recovering from her spay, Knox and I took off to join the pack.
We’ve dropped in on these walks here and there for about a year now. They remind us a lot of the Sociabulls Walks from our buddies over at Two Pitties in the City (Chicago). The purpose of the Pits on Parade walk is to spread the good word and big heads of the Pit Bull Type dog… B-More Dog specifically says these walks are: “A unique opportunity to combat the constant negative publicity and sensationalism that surrounds our beloved dogs. Our goal is to present a positive image of pit bulls as wonderful, well-mannered and friendly companion dogs”. Yup, that sums it up pretty well.
So, a fellow member of B-More dog, J.E. took some amazing photos that she is sharing here with all of you! She runs an advocacy group as well, Babes 4 Bullies and fosters through Jasmine’s House, another super awesome local Pit Bull Rescue. So I’ll let her photos take over!
There are plenty more of these, this was just a select few of J.E.’s awesome photos…and we’re very happy she shared them with us, to share with you!
Now I know Chicago has Sociabulls… any other cities out there that have similar type walks around the city? They are fabulous and fairly easy. They spread good word, work on obedience, and get some energy out…not to mention make people smile with these silly outfits!
If your city doesn’t have one, you should gather a few well-mannered dogs together and get out there!
