Thanks for posting all of this Vi, we are absolutely sure that this is the final flyer guys so we really need all the help we can get promoting this event! Clayton Ruby needs more $$$$ LOL besides we want to meet you all in May!!!! Also we need donations for the silent auction and more volunteers!

Hi all, I was on the phone with the fund-raising person from DLCC today and she suggested that we post as many places as possible to ! sell tickets, but also to get volunteers and people who will go to companys etc. and try and get donations for the silent auction. Also publisize, as Seeker is doing!!! We all have our favorite pet stores, doggie day cares, vet offices etc! We even put up flyers at U of T for the pit bull co-op and had lots of response, so becauase we all live far apart we can use this to our advantage, Vi and I cant get to every area, so if you could all help out in your respective neighbourhoods it could really give us a boost...oh and dont forget to come yourselves....Oh and btw you dont have to be a "bullie owner" to come and party!!! We luv ya anyway!:grouphug:

March 17th, 2006, 10:08 PM
Hi all, well the suggestion was that I keep updating this post in the hopes of getting more and more people helping to publisize our event. Vi and I went out postering last Monday and did quite a few places betweeen Menagerie East end, and Etobicoke, Menagerie gave us some donations for the auciton and alot of other places told us to call back but put up our posters etc. So once again, if anyone can help, please download the posters and take them anywhere you can think of..... Thanks a Billion! Also if your gutsy enough you could always ask your favorite pet store, or any other kind of store for that matter lOL for a donation for the auciton. thanks, Debbie .... and dont be shy about ordering tickets, theyre already to go, sell them to mom dad grandma, boy or girlfriend...... ;)

Have you had any calls for purchasing tickets yet?? if not I am sure you will. I am so excited!

March 21st, 2006, 05:46 PM
We just got the tickets printed, we have been dividing them up between the two stores and someone at Bullies in Need who is helping, and a few people from the DLCC. So guys it would be a areally good idea to start ordering them now! If your not near downtown you can just pm me or Vi and we will reserve your ticket, you can send your cheque and we can keep a master list so that you can pick your ticket up on the day, but we really dont want too many at the door, we only have alittle over a hundred and ofcourse I would like everyone from this list to make sure they get theres!

March 21st, 2006, 08:49 PM
Seeker, we have so far had donations for things like gift certificates from pet stores, pet toys, dog biscuits, a Royal Dalton Clock, art services, ex. portrait of your dog, art prints, airial photograph of one of the ships in the Halifax harbour, oh and Jessies mom is sending us a basket of yummie mr. Christie cookies etc. In other words just about anything..... the skys the limit so to speak. Also if people could bring food items for the party that would be welcome, we will be providig finger foods and soft drinks but some people want to bake etc. so thats all very welcome. The DLCC has asked us to approach stores etc and see who might want to donate something, I was somewhat hesitant at first but so far all of the pet stores we have approached have given us a solid maybe:) Except for Menagerie, Helmuts, and the Dog Lounge...they are for sure!

:D Hehe, just to cheeer myself up a bit, I decided to go to Bryants riding to put up some Rock-a-Bully Bash fundraising posters...it felt gooood. I put some in the pet stores near his consituancy office on St clair West, they donated some dog treats and toys too! Its a little thing I know but its nice to be welcomed into "enemy territory" he he You know make some friends in the riding for October 2007:D

I wish more people understood these implications the way that you do Jesses mom! I had a great time opening the package, the bow actually looks fine...wow! what a haul for some lucky Bully Basher! Thanks again, As you can see from the posts we all really appreciate it!

How are you doing on the media? Are you contacting all the newspapers and radio station. You should try to get someone from a popular radio station MC your event.

If May wasn't a crazy month for me, I would come to your event!

babyrocky1
April 13th, 2006, 05:34 PM
Actually so far we are putting it together as a non-media event. We may revisit that this week as we are having a strategising session on Saturday and a pit bull co-op walk on Monday. Connie wilson did put up our event on the Modern Dog website though, thanks for the Hookup Poodle Talk!

LOL it is getting close isnt it? LOL Im really looking forward to the Bash as I hope everyone else is but its kinda nerve wracking...so much more needs to be done! We all need to thank MUMUMUMUM as well, she is going to help with the decor and she has already done lots of promotion!!!! Wait til you all see Jesses moms basket of goodies!
You guys all know that Violet, (pitbulliest ofcourse) is working like crazy and we also have Carrie, who we met at the Pit Bull co-op...she has recently come on board at the request of both Violet and I cause she knows what shes doing and were just faking it!
Carrie actually has experience with event plannning and thankfully she has come on board with us. You guys will love her and I think her band is going to do a set before the Bad Dog Band comes on...well see:fingerscr

A lady at my work knows I have a pit bull and she said to me "you know there is this Rock a bully bash thing going on that I saw flyers for"

I about cried! She said she saw them at PetAgree Groomers in the Bloor street area. She asked if I knew where she could get flyers. The lady said she will put them at the pet valu (owner has a staffy) in High park and the Bloor animal clinic (had petition against the banning of pits).


Good flyering people!!!!!!

Sorry we are babysitting 3 kids under 12 this weekend , stuffing them into a van and driving to the city is OK but trying to keep control of them and a dog or 2 on a walk would take "multitasking" to the next level.

Debbie and Vi - I wish I could be there to help you get set up - but this will all depend on my guest. If i knew how to drive to the big city myself, i'd be there early! I can't wait to meet you all - and mostly, I can't wait to meet Rocky!!!!:pawprint: ;) LOL

I'm surprised that my friend that is joining me on Saturday is actually coming! I don't think she is as active in the pet world as we all are. I did inform her that she will learn so much about BSL - I don't think she knows how far one banned breed could go. She knows my Copper, but I don't think she realises that there are many more Pit Bulls (and look-a-likes) that are well behaved and very much loved by their owners. She mostly knows what she reads in the news or sees on TV. I'm confident that she will change her opinions/views on the breed in general ---and she is not easily persuaded!!:eek:

babyrocky1
May 2nd, 2006, 10:07 PM
Dont worry about convincing her Sherry, Rocky will be the only dog there," My house my rules" LOL but I will assign him that duty! BTW I got him one of those "party collars" like Copper has for the occasion, he will just be there for a few minutes though, but long enough to meet and greet, besides, with all the fundraising etc. I forgot his birthday, it was on the 26th so now Illl tell him the "Bully Bash" is his birthday party!!!!:party: His SEVENTH! Yikes!:party: :pawprint:

It went great Jesse's Mommy!!!! We had a wonderful time! Except for the DLCC question and answer session - to many teary eyed moments for me :sad: , but overall very informative.
The silent auction went very well and your basket was sold!!!:thumbs up Thanks again for the donation!
I placed my bid on a basket from a pet store on the Danforth that had an Orka ball, a stuffed toy in the shape of a drill, a Safe-T-Tag(flashes LED lights for night time), a bag of Carrot cake dog cookies, a bag of liver treats and a raw hide bone. My little girl claimed the stuffed drill!! She loves it!:crazy:
The DLCC also had shirts, sweaters, pins, bandannas, and car decals for sale to raise money for the legal challenge.
A HUGE thanks to Debbie and Violet from pets.ca, and the many others that contributed to the event.:angel: It was great to meet a few people from here as well!

I didn't make it. :sad:
I wasn't sure if I should bring her or not. Basically I rationalized it as it was an art gallery with a rock band... and I heard no mention of other kids. If If it werent so far I would have came just to see. I feel aweful! I was so anxious on Saturday knowing I couldn't go and that I was expected. So on behalf of me and my dog I am sooo sorry!

To top it all off I couldnt get babyrockys # because my internet was down at home and has been for 3 weeks. :sad: :( Actually my whole PC is on the fritz! ). I logged on later on at a friends... too late though.

Sorry again guys I feel like I let ya'll down.. I want to pay for my ticket not b/c I missed it but that is part of it but because I want to feel like I did something.. So please tell me where I can pay for it.

We tried to get a message to you on the day of that you and your step daughter would be very welcome! The case is next week so you can help Plan the VICTORY Party LOL

THANKYOU ALL from pets.ca for really helping to make the event work out! It was sooo nice to see you all finally meeting! I hope everyone had a good time as Rocky and myself...Rockys seventh birthday was April 26th so he was told this was his birthday party! I think that this was one of the best days of his life! I know Coppers Mom will be posting pics anytime now LOL

Luvmypit, the pitbull co-op walks are a very regular thing now...we have folks from bullies in need, pets.ca, even Steve from the DLCC was with us yesterday...I know its far for you to come down but maybe you could make a special trip one time and meet up with us, step daughter welcome!

Thanks babyrocky I really felt awful. I had one of those should I go shouldn't I go saturdays. Then when it was too late even if I tried I felt so guilty.

But I do believe that just means I have to make a special extra effort to come for a walk with you all. Sundays Are actually good for me and I work in Toronto so coming down for a walk is not bad at all. I'll let you know when I am good to go. So come on now can we have some more pics?? Please ...

May 8th, 2006, 09:41 PM
Jeepers Babyrocky - I held back thinking any minute now you and Pitbulliest were gonna get on here with some well-deserved BRAGGING...turned shy ? Modest now ? Oy!

Well, to all: the event was INCREDIBLE. Simply, splendiforously, superfantastical !!!!

You would not believe the AMOUNT and the QUALITY of the items Babyrocky and Pitbulliest garnered for auction - STUNNING. The basket full of tucker donated by Jessie's Mommy was truly a hit. You should have seen the ear-to-ear beamer on the guy who jumped in with the trump bid at the 30 second mark (must be a expert ebayer...) - a few disappointed faces let me assure you!

The food was pigout-worthy (well, I was good for 4 plates anyway and I noticed I was NOT alone) - again - all donations secured by Pitbulliest, Babyrocky and their Pitbull Co-op pal Carrie. Seeker and Mrs. Seeker - all I can say is YUM.

The Bad Dog band are - not surprising - dogpeople and were genuinely happy to donate their time and talent to The Cause. Hardrockin' souls all of them who found more than a few fans that evening and went away happy with some bones and food.

The Q&A I'm told (I was home for a dawgwalk break) was very informative and of course, heart wrenching - given the facts. One of the folks there who wasn't overly familiar with all the issues and has recently adopted a bullyX said the Q&A was a real eyeopener for him and he hopes to get more involved.

Set up and clean up went surprizingly smoothly (though I'm not sure anyone would say so at the time given the level of nervous energy and exhaustion:rolleyes: ) MOSTLY because there were plently of willing hands - Pitbulliest's friends and their family, Babyrocky's amazing co-op members and Carrie's friends and family. You "youngsters" ROCK!

It's a shame there isn't an emoticon for a thousand hands clapping because it truly was an AMAZING event made all the more amazing in that it's a FIRST for Babyrocky and Pitbulliest and they met an awful lot of challenges along the way. You are AMAZING women! If this case could be won on sheer determination and pitbullheadedness - it would be over done with and gone. And to think, you did it all with good humour, good grace and no messy bloodbathes :D !

Gushing now over.:grouphug: :pawprint: :grouphug:

May 8th, 2006, 09:50 PM

Thanks for the cool description MUMUMUMUM and Coppers Mm, I love these pics of Rocky, can you send me a disk???? I still want to see more of the event though, but I will wait patiently...yeah right... LOL
Coppers Mom, how is it you are able to identify everyones feet? Is it that your that close to the ground??? LOL hahahha.... I crack myself up.....! That was for all the "old jokes" you enjoy at my expense LOL
I actually missed alot cause i didnt want to bring Rocky into the concert, I was worried it would be too loud for him...but we went in for the last set, which was a little softer and Rocky posed for pics with the band...I think Coppers Mom and Pitbulliest have those shots????
I really cant wait for those pics of the performance space it looked soooo good!
Yeah the band very generously donated their time, Bill the singer also testified at the committee hearings so everyone was a pittie enthusiast who was there. Which explains why Rocky had such a great day! Coppers moms basket was donated by Small Wonders, a pittie friendly store on the Danforth. Helmutts , Dog lounge, Tip Top and Tails, and Menagerie and one more Love My Pet, all Pittie Supporting pet stores in Toronto. Tons of other people to thank but this is probably not the place for that. EXCEPT I would really like to thank Pets.ca, after all this is were all of the ideas began. For the fundraiser and the Pit Bull Co-op! Thankyou one and all at pets. ca Wahooooo! :highfive: :grouphug: :highfive:

I would like to thank you. You did a great job. I just wish we could of stayed later but we had friends to meet for dinner. Unfortunately after eating all the treats you provided I was too full to finish my meal at the restaurant....so I brought home a doggie bag. I should have convinced them to come too I guess but they wanted Indian food.

I am so glad that I finally got to meet Rocky. I loved him. What a sweet and mellow boy he is. He is the epitome of all that is wrong with the DOLA and why dog owners of all breeds need to fight this thing.

Good job. I hope to see you at a muzzle burning party soon.

BTW: That is indeed my foot in that Merrell. I have enough problems putting faces to names let alone feet. Thatís quite the talent Copperís Mom.

Now that everyone knows were I live...lets have a victory party...no fundraising...no ticket selling...a BYB....pot luck...co-operative.....Huge celebration...hopefully we will have good reason very soon, then we can hang out on my roof deck and have a blast!!!!!! Rocky loved all of you too
:pawprint: he slept for tweve hours after all the loving he got!!!!! I have to confess though, hes not usually that mellow...he was exausted.... Hes a good hearted boy, but usually full of energy and loves to jump on people and shower them with kisses!

The event was great, and it was indeed a success....we have all created a pit bull network that will stay with us even if this ban is overturned...we will all be there to support one another, and now alot of us from here have actually met face to face.

Thanks again everyone...and thanks pets.ca.... :grouphug:

It was good to meet up with everyone and to hear that we are getting very close to achieving our financial goal .
Baby rocky , Pitbulliest and one other person that I am not sure of deserve a lot of credit for this event . It went over very well and all of you should be very proud of yourselves.
Coppersmom it was great to meet you , great picks and now I have a new way to ID people {from the knees down}LOL .Twodogsandcat I wish we had had a little more time to discuss the present govenment but we have a few months yet to go .
The band was terrific and thanks to them for their time and support .

I have heard there is a pic of our favourite polititian's face on the "HOT" seat circulating around here somewhere !!!!!!

thanks Seeker, the person your thinking of is Carrie, shes a pit bull co-op member and now the DLCC and Bullies in Need volunteer as well! But those decorations are all the inspiration of our very own Mumumumum! I must say its a pleasure to work as part of a great team, all of us very different so able to work really well together....It was amazing working with all of you! I know Steve from the DLCC has one of those pics Seeker...does anyone else have one?

Not enough for a land developer to have a 'private' meeting with Premier McGuinty but a considerable amount. Way to go.

Oh, just a remnder everyone, the word is it could take up to a month to decide this so while Monday and Tuesday are really big days, it likely wont be decided then. Freedom maybe in a few more weeks.....I hope we at least can make an "educated guess" though.:fingerscr
