Bully Awareness Day - October 20th

Are you getting tired of all the negative publicity pit bulls are getting? How about all of the irresponsible and uneducated pit bull owners out there? If so, here's your chance to make a difference!

On October 20th, 2007, responsible pit bull owners and advocates around the country can make their voices heard! On this day we will celebrate the first national Pit Bull Awareness Day. It's about time that we showed the public that not all pit bull owners are alike! We are not criminals, thugs or dog fighters. We are not people with low self-esteems that need a strong dog to bolster our fragile egos. Let's set the record straight once and for all! Let's show the public that people from all walks of life, from celebrities to soccer moms, own and responsibly manage pit bulls! Let's show them that our dogs are members of our families and that we are not going to be bullied by breed specific legislation.

Regardless of where you are located, please choose an activity to participate in on October 20, 2007 to promote and celebrate responsible pit bull ownership. It can be a breed education rally, a dog walk & wash, a pet parade or a candle light vigil. The possibilities are endless! Regardless of the activity you choose, please sign up to participate so people in your area know and can participate and promote responsible ownership with you. Please visit the Bless the Bullys website to sign up.

Many thanks to Jodi and Bless the Bullys for launching this important campaign. On October 20th, let's make sure our voices are heard across the nation!
