Nekid is as Nekid Does

So, we decided to get naked for our calendar this year.

There - I said it. No big deal, right? It sounded like a good idea at the time: Draw attention to the fact that pit bull owners are so used to being stared at that we just don't give a damn anymore. Once we got closer to the date of the photo shoot, we all started caring a little more than we thought we would. 'Oh god, my stomach!' 'My vericose veins!' 'Don't shoot my butt!'

Well, pit bulls don't care what you look like as long as you look like you're having fun. So we rented a house on Stinson Beach in Marin County, packed up way too much food, way too many dogs and plenty of drink. We wished we would've packed tomato juice, because within hours of enjoying the salt air, no less that three dogs and one human were sprayed by a beach combing skunk. And so went our adventure. It was, actually, one of the happiest weekends I've had in years. Dog bless margarita inspired brainstorms!

The calendar includes BR's core group: which includes police officers, a fire fighter, a teacher, business owners, artists, account execs, lawyers and more. We may be showing butt cracks, but we ain't thugs. We hope you like the results. And even if you don't, we truly hope that - if you do own a pit bull - you're able to enjoy many moments without caring anything about the stares you get. After all, when you own a wonderful pet, you've got absolutely nothing to hide. (And, what you do need to hide is easily covered with a wee bit of foundation.)

BAD RAP Exposed will be officially launched at our Tuff Love Event this coming Saturday. For those who can't go - You're missing one hell of a good party! - but you can order your copy of the Calendar Here.

Thank you!

New Videos Worth Getting Choked Up About:

1. Wallace the Purina Flying Disc Champ and Roo, singing the National Anthem (Check out Wallace's other videos while you're at YouTube)

2. And, this News Report from East Lyme, Conn, of a pit bull that sat by his injured owner's side after a bad car wreck. *Sniff*

Nekid? Who's nekid? Honky has his fav shirt on! Fabulous idea, I was just thinking, 'hope they do a calendar this year'...and you haven't let us down out here. I will especially love giving it out to the more uptight folks here on the East Coast.


PS Tomato juice no good for a skunk attack... best recipe is 1 qt fresh hydrogen peroxide, 1/4 c. baking soda, 1 teaspoon dish soap. Mix it up. Wet your dog (outside). Wash that dog with the mixture and lukewarm water while it is bubbling. Work it into the fur. Let stand for 10 minutes while your dog is running around like crazy. Make sure not to get into dog's eyes. Rinse with warm water. Enjoy freshly bathed dog. I've been through this once; porcupine twice, which is much more expensive.

Way to go! I love your sense of humor and committment to the breed. I don't own a bully breed, but am going to order one of your calendars.

Just an update about the Pitbull who would not leave his owner. I googled it and found out that Tiny's owner is okay...and they heard from the hospital where he was taken that "the driver was OK and was yelling that he wanted to see his dog. Vince(fireman who took charge) took him to the hospital so the gentleman could see him."

Speaking of love and loyalty...on both sides.
