On May 22, 2011, my amazing friend and published author, Michelle Sathe, will be doing a book signing event at Lucky Dog Rescue in Meridian, MS! I am so excited to finally meet Michelle and promote her incredible book: ““Pit Stops: Crossing the Country with Loren the Rescue Bully.” A portion of “Pit Stops” proceeds will benefit Lucky Dog Rescue! In addition, Michelle will be interviewing me for her next book, “Pit Stops 2!”
PUBLISHED AUTHOR & PIT BULL AMBASSADOR TO VISIT LUCKY DOG RESCUE IN MERIDIAN, MS!
Accompanied by Kara, author Michelle Sathe will sign copies of “Pit Stops” at rescues, shelters, humane pet stores and dog-friendly venues from Santa Fe to Pittsburgh during their seven-week trek.
“Kara is such a sweet, affectionate dog, I just know she’s going to charm everyone she meets,” Sathe said. “Having a positive, hands-on interaction with a bully breed is instrumental in turning around the bad rap these dogs have. Like Loren, my canine companion in the book, Kara’s the perfect girl to show the world how great bullies can be.”
Sathe and Kara will appear for a book signing and adoption event at Lucky Dog Rescue in Meridian, MS, on Sunday, May 22 from 3-6 p.m. Run by Ashley Owen Hill, Lucky Dog Rescue specializes in rescuing pit bulls and other homeless dogs from shelters, as well as providing assistance to low-income pet owners in the area.
Instead, Kara was rescued in the nick of time by shelter volunteer Kyle Harris, who fosters dogs at her Canyon Country home, in January. When Sathe saw Kara’s picture posted on Harris’ Facebook page, she knew she had found her new road companion.
“We’ve spent some quality time together to prepare for the trip and I just adore Kara,“ Sathe said. “Unfortunately, bully breeds can take some time to adopt out, so Kyle and I both hope that the exposure from the trip will help Kara find her perfect family.”
Sathe will blog about the duo’s adventures in real-time starting May 9 at http://blog.pitstopsbook.com . “I’m really looking forward to this trip and I think Kara is, too,” Sathe said. “We’re going to do our best to help these dogs, one mile and one encounter at a time.”
A portion of Pit Stop sales will benefit Lucky Dog Rescue!
