If you happened to watch Citys' coverage tonight at eleven, that group of responsible pittie owners was us! Rocky had a close up ofcourse! We were kind of taken of guard, they actually came to interview one of our members but ended up coming on the walk with us....all the doggies behaved themselves...phew..... ;)(if anyones still up, theyre rerunning it on CP24...you have to get through some discusting clips of Bryant talking but I think the coverage was pretty good for us. After interviewing some of our members, and Ruby and Bryant, they did "man on the street interviews", and most of them were against the ban.

I saw a clip on Global with a bunch of pitties being walked,no muzzles.
But they were discussing the courtdate of one owner to fight BSL,I believe it's tomorrow.Sorry I missed yours..

We have a great group of people and really cool dogs! All completely well behaved for the cameras! I asked the reporter if she would come and walk with us after the law was overturned and they were all unmuzzled...she said sure!:)

If you need a site to post your video, photobucket will host it for free.

I've uploaded still pictures and it's pretty easy to do, so I would imagine uploading a video from your hard drive shouldn't be too complicated.

Is anyone interested in forming a Pit Bull Co-op in thier own area???? We would like to help you hook up if your interested, there is some talk of a chapter starting in Barrie, and we would like to do all we can to create a network for anyone looking to start one up anywhere at all. We have a website now but if anyone would like us to search for "pittie friends" in ther area we would love to try and help.
Basically its just a walking and networking group for responsible owners of "pittie type" dogs. One of the great things about it is that not only your dog gets to maintain socialization but you get support for yourself for what your undoubtably going through. Also, its good for people to see responsible "non criminal types" of "pittie owners" as we can see by the sun article that were all still assumed to be drug dealers and other assorted low lives.... ;)

So thanks to Pitbulliest the Pit bull Co-op makes positive News again!!!! (Worthnothing Debate) Not my name for him, I stole it cause I like it lOL
Anyways Ithink I will take this opportunity to update everyone on the rest of the Co-op news.

We have now been meeting pretty much since last Xmas, We started on Monday nights, and switched to Sundays for the summer. We now have enough members that we feel we can add the Monday night as well, so we have just started that as of last week. I cant possibly tell you what a difference this makes to our lives. The "bully" walk is such a de-stresser for myself as well as Rocky! We have a great group and know that as we walk, especially through downtown Toronto, we are showing another side to the stereo type of "pit bull" owners as well as the dogs. We stop and talk with anyone who wants to chat and believe me we stop alot! Its all good. We still want to expand to more and more chapters so if youd like to do this in your own neighbourhood or JOIN us please do! You can contact myself or Vi. All of our contact info is on the pit bull co-op web site. www.pitbullcoop.2ya.com So please give it a try. We have started a bit of a list that includes people from other sites looking to start something up, right now we are looking for some folks that can get to Mississauga/Port Credit.

We can always use more people, even if they dont have dogs cause some folks come with extra lol
We do make a special effort to speak to people who have questions and comments. It started out just as a socialization group for the dogs but now its also very good pr for responsible owners to be out IN PUBLIC with their dogs and educating people as best as we can!
