On Sunday, May 20, B-More Dog held a special rally version of our "Pit Bulls On Parade" around the Inner Harbor! More than 60 dogs and 100 people showed the City of Baltimore and the state of Maryland what a REAL pit bull looks and acts like- loyal friend, treasured companion, well-behaved family member! 3 videos available at Animal Farm Foundation's vimeo.
Oh my goodness! Please Read! 1. My life is likely to last 10 to 15 years. Any separation from you will be painful remember that before you get me. 2. Give me time to understand what you want of me. 3. Place your trust in me- it is crucial to my well being. 4. Do not be angry at me for long, and do not lock me up as punishment. 5. You have your work, your entertainment,and your friends. I only have you. 6. Talk to me sometimes. Even if I don't understand your words, I understand your voice when it is speaking to me. 7. Be aware that how ever you treat me, I will never forget. 8. Remember before you hit me that I have teeth that could easily hurt you, but I choose not to bite you because I love you. 9. Before you scold me for being uncooperative,obstinate,or lazy, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I might not be getting the right food, or I have been out to long, or my heart is getting to old and weak. 10. Take care of me when I get old; you too will grow old. Go with me on difficult journeys. Never say: "I cannot bear to watch" or "Let it happen in my absence." Everything is easier for me if you are there, even my death. Remember that I love you.
I got to meet more than 100 dogs and their families. It was so beautiful, seeing how people of all stripes love their dogs and how proud they were to have their photo taken together as a family. Baltimore is an amazingly diverse city of incredibly warm people, and I felt lucky to get to interact with so many of them — and their gorgeous animals — at the event. #pitbull
This blog chronicles one family’s adventures in taking a bully-breed dog with a sad past out of a shelter and offer it our love and a six-foot leash. We have a few humble goals in this pursuit: to find our current foster a great “forever home” by revealing her sweetness and her big personality; to encourage others to foster by sharing our experience; and to show the gentle, loyal nature of pit bull type dogs when kept as family pets. #pitbull
Jon Stewart's take on Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin's, 2008 comment regarding hockey moms and pit bulls: "One is unfairly maligned in spite of evidence that it is no worse than any other dog, and one is an artificial demographic that is no better or worse than any other mom."
