So…this is happening.

I have decided to submit my Pinups for Pit Bulls application for the 2018 Calendar model search and I want you to apply too! It was not an easy decision for me and I hope to make the decision easier for you by reimbursing the $50 application fee for one lucky reader! (see details below)

I understand your possible fear, as I generally hate having my picture taken and, honestly, I never really thought of myself as “pinup” material. However, after just a few minutes on the phone with Pinups for Pit bulls founder, Deirdre “Little Darling” Franklin about how and why she started the organization and its trademark fundraiser calendar, I’ve decided to throw my hat in the ring in the hopes that, even for one day, I can go from this

to this…


or, maybe this…

Whether I am selected or not, Franklin’s focus on empowering women combined with her organization’s commitment to pit bull advocacy (more on this in an upcoming interview and review of Deirdre’s new book, “The Pit Bull Life”) is reason enough support the organization’s efforts. Also, I believe that my inner pinup girl is just itching to come out so…it is happening…

Why Everyone Should Apply for the Pinups for Pit Bulls Model Search

Several years ago, I started down the road of pit bull rescue and advocacy. I have learned a great deal and I now have a pit bull of my own but I have so much more to learn. There is still so much education, outreach and advocacy work to do to overturn Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) across the country and to improve outcomes for pit bull type dogs that end up in our nation’s shelters and rescues. Deirdre’s group is doing the serious, feet on the ground grassroots work that needs to be done and the annual calendar is the group’s primary source of revenue that supports its efforts. So, applying is a win, even if not selected.
