Pit Bulls on parade

Yesterday I dropped by a fun adoption event called Pit Bulls on Parade, presented by Bullseye Dog Rescue and held at Issaquah, Washington’s Riverdog Canine Coaching.

And while I didn’t particularly see any parading Pit Bulls, nor any Pit Bulls in cute red wagons like in the picture above, I saw some of the sweetest dogs around. Dogs that get a bad rap. Dogs that need our help to stand up against BSL (Breed Specific Legislation) that bans Pit Bulls just because of their incorrectly perceived temperament .

Pit Bulls are not bad dogs. No dog is inherently bad. People? People can train dogs to do bad things. People can be intentionally stupid. So, as the graphic shows above, if anything were to be banned, it should be the stupid people and not any breed of dog. Now that is legislation I can get behind!

End of rant and on to the pictures!

I’m a sucker for a dog in a tutu, what can I say.

This Pit must have been parading, because he was tired and had to lay down to take a break.

Someone needed to tell this guy they had shave ice for pups over by the swimmy pools.

And speaking of swimmy pools – this Pit sure knew how to splash up some waves!

So many happy faces on the Pit Bulls I saw…it’s like they knew the party was in their honor!

And lastly, a Standard Poodle with pink hair rocking a “Honorary Pit Bull” shirt. Way to show support!

      Thanks, Mark! I agree, it is so important to see these fun dogs out there being like any other breed that will hopefully change people’s perceptions.
