Kissing for a Better Bully World...
So get this: Bonnie (pictured, left, with Hannie Annie, CGC, TDI, TT) came up with another great idea last year: A pit bull kissing booth. And in October, we had our first public kissing event, The Kiss-A-Bull kissing booth, in coordination with Sloppy Kisses (A Treat Boutique for Dogs in Saratoga Springs, NY). Our TDI-certified pit bulls kissed scores of people - lovers and skeptics alike. It was one of the most amazing "shows" we bullies have ever put on. I mean, look at this video...

And get this: At our most recent Kissing Bully Extravaganza, our Ambassadogs converted a total non-believer. A reluctant Kissing Booth visitor, a dog lover herself, was kissed for the first time by a pit bull. While she shares her life and home with two dogs (a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a Cairin Terrier), she had not yet understood or trusted the pit bull (despite my best efforts to educate based on the "facts"). As a realtor in a local inner-city neighborhood, she was certain that this breed was limited to lunging and barking at the end of a chain. Hmmmmm...

But then came a kiss from Grace, pit bull myth-buster extraordinaire. And, the outcome was enlightening. Our friend, the inner-city realtor, was a convert. Totally.

She even called the woman who cares for their dogs when they travel to see if she would board a pit bull. Is it possible that one bully kiss could lead this kind woman to consider opening her home to a pit bull?

Yeah, baby.

P.S. Change your life, too, at our next kissing booth on Valentine's Day!

This is great! We adopted our girl Paisley from Out of the Pits nearly 4 years ago now, and have since moved to MN. Paisley recently earned her CGC and we will continue to work toward her TDI title as well.

Anyway, I still "check in" with Out of the Pits from time to time and a blog is a great way to get your good work out there! =)

Hi, Amanda -

Thanks so much for reaching out! It sounds like Miss Paisley is doing absolutely fantastic. Keep up the great work with her - Her CGC(and soon to be TDI)title undoubtedly will make her a great Ambassadog.

Please continue to send updates, and pictures, if you have them. We love to know that our dogs are living life to the fullest!
