Portland Pit Bull Parade says
This months bully walk is being dedicated to Tucker Roo McPimpenstein who we recently lost due to cancer. His 'mama' Trish Jordan-Anderson will be walking with us in his memory. Please come ready to support her and also to help us carry on Tucker Roo's legacy as an amazing pit bull ambassador as her certified service dog, a rescuer of other animals and as an all round positive face for pit bulls everywhere.

Anyone who ever met Tucker, regardless of what they may have felt about pit bulls as a whole, fell in love with him and we want to continue that legacy of showing people in person just how wonderful and great companions our pit bulls can be because we choose to be responsible dog owners.

As always please observe our guidelines that are not designed to eliminate anyone but are designed to make it a safe and enjoyable event for everyone who participates.

Guidelines:
1. NO FACING OFF: Please help your dog(s) greet other dogs with respect by observing simple ‘dog rules’ of meeting. Allow nose sniffing and then the obligatory butt sniffing while remaining calm and attentive yourself. Our dogs know whether or not we are comfortable with them meeting other dogs so we must not allow meetings with other dogs unless we are comfortable with it. Please do not keep a taut leash while your dog is greeting/meeting other dogs (remember that dog fighters use this method of keeping the leash taut and pulling back while dogs face off in order to get their dogs into a fighting mindset). Please don’t ever assume that someone else wants their dog to meet yours so please be polite and make sure to ask permission before allowing your dog to meet/greet another dog.

2. NO RETRACTABLE LEASHES.

3. RED BANDANNAS FOR ‘DOG SENSITIVE’ DOGS: Dogs known or believed to be anxious when around other dogs are to wear a red bandanna to let others know to respect your dog’s space.

4. PICK UP AFTER YOUR DOG: If you don't have poop bags we have them. Just see one of the advocacy members at the walk to get some.

5. NO SMOKING: We ask all of our bully walkers who smoke to please avoid smoking in close proximity to the bully walkers during the meet-up, the walk and after walk cool down. We make no judgment as to whether or not smoking is acceptable but do not want to promote it either as our walks are a family event. Thank you for understanding.
