The Atlanta screening of Beyond the Myth
is tonight. As an advocate for the breed, I am thrilled at the buzz surrounding this movie. As a journalist, I am overjoyed with the opportunity to talk with fellow advocate and renowned trainer Victoria Stillwell
. As a Pit Bull lover, I am giddy with excitement to meet the pawmazing former Vick dog, Hector
. As a Pit Bull dog-ma, I am delighted to meet fellow parents of this remarkabull breed.
I will be sharing tonight's experiences in a furture post. In the meantime, here is a recent encounter with my own myth buster, Piggie.
Conversation with girl at the Starbucks
Girl: Awwww... What kind of dog is that?
Me: Pit Bull. Her name is Piggie.
Girl: She's soooo cute.
Me: Thank you.
Girl: Has she ever been mean or anything?
Me: Never. She's super sweet. In fact, if we were in the same room she'd be laying down waiting for you to rub her belly.
Girl (to co-worker): Come look at this cute Pit Bull!
