it is with great pride and unbridled excitement that i announce to you that my images of the rockstar pit bulls, Matrix and Earl, have been selected to be included in The Unexpected Pit Bull 2012 Calendar!
i met this dynamic duo in the spring and we enjoyed a fun day at their home and at the local park, where Matrix showed off her frisbee catching skills…man, that girl can jump! the wetter and dirtier she became, the happier she was…atta girl! Earl, the senior gentleman with the brightest smile, lounged at home, snacked on treats and doled out kisses to everyone (including the cat). they are also the inspiration behind FITABULL (custom-made collars designed for pitties).
The Unexpected Pit Bull is a not-for-profit organization that creates, markets, and sells merchandise celebrating pit bull dogs. they generously donate 100% of net profits to pit bull rescue, education, and advocacy organizations in need of support. If you love pitties, you’ve probably already heard of it!
since 2004, their unique and professionally photographed calendar has celebrated the pit bull love, energy, and spirit. for the first time, the calendar is collaborating with HeARTs Speak, an organization made up of an international community of artists working to improve the lives of animals in need. members (me included) have contributed photographs that grace the calendar pages this year.
knowing first hand how loving (and extremely photogenic) pitties are, it gives me such a warm fuzzy feeling to be a part of a community helping to showcase their awesomeness!
