Pit Bull Awareness Day, Music City Style

This past Saturday, pit bull owners and advocates across the country joined together to celebrate Pit Bull Awareness Day.  Here in Nashville, we celebrated PBAD with live music, vendors, a silent auction and of course plenty of pitties! Since Cooper is still “working on himself,” we thought a gathering of that many dogs would be a little overwhelming for him, so I tagged along with adoptable Olive and her foster mom to take part in all the pittie fun.

I couldn’t get enough of these two in their matching sweaters, they were so well-behaved! They just laid there politely while craziness ensued all around them. Some dogs are just far too refined for such silliness as costume and trick contests.

…but not Princess Fatso! She won the costume contest dressed as a 50’s car hop waitress – see her cute little roller skates?

Of course, Olive was right there to congratulate her.

Princess Fatso narrowly beat out the wicked witch…

10-month old Tank even dressed up like his Person…or maybe his Person dressed up like Tank?

Not only was this sweet little girl a complete and total love bug, she has excellent taste in sports team apparel.

(Oscar has the same sweater.)

Williamson County Animal Control was there too, with lots of their adoptable pitties looking for their furever families. We love WCAC, because it’s the former home of both Cooper and Molly Tamale, and unlike many shelters, they happily adopt out pit bull type dogs to approved applicants.

I absolutely fell in love with this little guy – he’s a pit bull/Jack Russel terrier mix!  How cute is he??  Olive was a little smitten, too…

And of course, the highlight of the day….The Pittie Parade!

It was an amazing turnout and a super fun day. Thank you so much to Nashville PITTIE for organizing Nashville’s 6th annual Pit Bull Awareness Day – we had a great time, and I can’t wait ’till next year!

Olive outtake!

Cooper is still on the market! If you’re interested in adding Cooper to your family, please fill out an adoption application with Agape Animal Rescue.

…and don’t forget to VOTE for COOPER!
