Pinups for Pitbulls

August 27, 2010

As I mentioned in the previous post did a photo shoot to submit for this calendar two weekends ago.  The organization is called Pinups for Pibulls and they are doing great work to raise awareness of the fact that pitbulls are a loving and caring breed that have received a bad wrap.  Due to signing image exclusivity rights I cannot show you any pictures from the shoot.  I do however have some pictures from after the shoot that are okay!

My partner and I took the train down to Philly where we met up with Dale Rio at her house.  From there we got me ready and I walked down to Studio Noir Philadelphia to meet up with my co-star, Wilma he pitbull.

Wilma Wonka is a rescued pitbull from Philly that was taken from her neglectful owner, who was probably using her as a breeding dog.  Wilma is now living in my friends Karen and Dan’s house as a foster pup looking for adoption.  She is super cute and playful and Karen reports she is learning how to cuddle.  She behaved pretty well during the shoot.

The dog handlers (Karen and Dan), the photo shoot star Wilma, and the photographer Dale Rio.

The other great thing about having Karen and Dan up was that they brought tofu hoagies (banh mi) from Fu-Wah in west Philly.  Oh man I love those tofu hoagies! Everyone at the shoot was veg, so we were all pretty stoked to chow down during or after the shoot on the delicious presents Karen and Dan brought.

If you think you might be interested in adopting Wilma, you can fid her information on her craigslist ad.  Also check out P.A.W.S. (Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society) to learn more about fostering or adopting rescued animals in the Philly area. If you are not in the Philly area, check out petfinder.com where you can search for all kinds of rescued animals all over the world!
