Weekends in review

We’ve have some fun weekends around here! Wanna see what we we’ve been up to?  Well two weekends ago Chocko was busy on Saturday cheering on the runners in the Baltimore Marathon (and half marathon, and the relay too) with his gal Chloe.

The Elite ladies!

Then on Sunday he got to attend the Purple Stride event to raise funds to fight Pancreatic Cancer.  He got to ride up and hang out with his buddy Tyson during the event.  And meet lots of people too!

On our way to Purple stride!

Tyson’s butt is the perfect pillow

They wore their purple with pride!  

He got some good snuggles in with his mama on this beautiful day – and got a ton of play time in with Tyson in the grass.

Sounds like a fun weekend right?  Well that was just the warm up!  This past weekend was Barcstoberfest (check out our visit from last year) and Chocko signed up and finished his first 5k to benefit BARCS – the shelter he was sprung from!  It was the inaugural 5k.  Chocko even got his own bib 🙂

Ready to do this!

He ran with a new friend, Julius (available for adoption through Mid Atlantic Bully Buddies) who would make someone a fabulous running partner!

I was so proud of him!  He did so good running with tons of dogs and was such a great ambassador for his breed at busy Barcstoberfest.  

I wasn’t the only one who was proud…he got some post-race love from his girlfriend Molly who came to cheer him on.

Kisses, followed by long naps!

Busy boy right?  We’re exhausted!  Don’t worry, he’ll nap enough this week for the both of us.  I just love fall, there are so many fun things going on and the weather has been per.fect.  I hope everyone is enjoying October!  Anyone doing anything fun with their pooches recently?!

Celebrating Pitbull Awareness Day

Did you know it’s Pitbull Awareness Day?  How are you Celebrating?  I hope you get to snuggle up your pibble, give him/her lots of love and kisses, and whisper sweet nothings to your love bug.  Maybe a bit of a longer walk on this beautiful fall Saturday  or a special treat.  Oh, you don’t have a pibble to love?  Go Adopt one!  Or, spread the word about how misrepresented they are…and if you see a well-mannered pitbull type dog walking around town today, or anyday…give compliments to their responsible owner and maybe a little love for their pitbull ambassador.

Want to know how we celebrated today?  With BARCStoberfest of course!  Knox dressed in his October’s best

then gathered his bestest of friends

and hit Patterson Park to visit with dogs,

A cow and a bull!

mingle with old foster siblings

Ivy Girl!

 and say hello to some of his favorite organizations and rescue groups.

BARCS' Pit Crew

Mid Atlantic Bully Buddies

He even got to get his feet wet in some agility fun!

He had a great day hangin’ around with his motley crew…and continuing to show the world how fantastic these pit bull type dogs can be. 🙂

He’d says it was all in all a successful Pit Bull Awareness Day!
