A HUGE SUCCESS - In Memory of Horatio Pit bull Awareness Day!

Pit Bull Awareness Day 2008
was a HUGE SUCCESS thanks to YOU!!
Thank you to everyone that came to our 1st Pit bull Awareness day In memory of Horatio.
We sure had a positive reaction with so many people that we came across at Old Sac. It was very satisfying to see so many pet owners join us. Many people liked the idea of meeting every month. The bullies looked great! Mom's and dads in their bully shirts sure made the event special.

A dear friend, Suzi Johnston who attended said ," It was a small gathering, but it was sure heart warming. Some wonderful dogs in attendance (& some pretty nice humans too!). I know this will grow year by year!"

A GIANT HUG & THANKS to Candice Anderson, Dawn Capp from & my friend Steve Hall for all their support and help, I could not have done it without you.

Love, Peace & Hugs Dear Friends
Yes on 2! Yipeee It Passed!
GO OBAMA! Vote!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I also thought you would be interested in just a very small sampling of news articles and blogs related to this year's PBAD events around the country...

Pit Bull Awareness Day 2009 is scheduled for Saturday, October 24, 2009. Hope to see you next year!!

Pit Bull Awareness Day 2008

Come one, Come all…Saturday, October 25, 2008
It's the 2nd Annual Nationwide Pit Bull Awareness Day.
Why a Pit Bull Awareness Day? In light of the constant negative publicity and sensationalized hype that surrounds pit bulls, Pit Bull Awareness Day was established as a day to focus on these incredible dogs and their devoted, responsible owners. This event will not only be taking place across the United States, but also internationally in such countries as Russia and Canada. Here in Sacramento a Meet-N-Greet and Bully Walk will be held. With the date being so close to Halloween, we encourage you to dress up your dog in costume, or even bandanna’s as a great alternative. We are asking for all responsible dog owners and well-behaved dogs to please participate. This is open to all breeds, but especially any that fall under BSL (Breed Specific Legislation). Here is the event info:

What: Bully Walk (in costume)& Meet-N-Greet !
In memory of Horatio - The Story of an Unbroken Spirit of a July 4th Bully
WHEN: Saturday, October 25, 2008
Where: In Old Sac at the Park on I Street (across from Discovery Museum)
Time: 1:00pm
Hope to see all of you there, the larger the group the bigger the impact! We have to be the voice for our dogs, so please help get the word out. Let’s make this event a BIG success!
