We know you’ve been asking and the pictures are up. These amusing and adorable photos are now available for your viewing pleasure!
On Sunday, October 28, 2012 during the Pit Bull Awareness day festivities at Republic Square Park, pittie owners (and other dog owners alike) had the chance to pledge their commitment to responsible guardianship AND have their photograph taken with their beloved canines.
Last year the line was soooo long we divided participants between two photo booths this year – still tons of people and their dogs! It’s wonderful and amazing to have so many responsible guardians…and it means we’ll have to up our game again next year! We photographed at least 349 dogs compared to the 200+ last year.
THANK YOU to all the responsible owners that took the time to stand in line, sign the pledge, and attempt to have your dog(s) sit still while some crazy odd-shaped piece of equipment (camera) flashed and clicked at them…not every dog is so camera-savvy as we’d like.
THANK YOU to our registration volunteers Wendy, Lindley, and Melissa for promoting the pledge and keeping the line moving with so many people and pooches.
THANK YOU to our volunteer photographers Lindsay and David (and their assistants) for doing the best they could to take pictures of squirmy and excited dogs amid tons of people and other dogs in the middle of a downtown Austin park.
