I know it's been a while since I've sent out an update - I'm sorry about that. As most of you know, I'm fast approaching my due date (August 20th) and will be taking a little vacation from the meetup group once the new addition to the family arrives.
In the meantime, if you know of any dog-friendly events, fundraisers, adoptions, etc.. that should be added to our calendar, please email me at [address removed]
While I am on maternity leave, Cathy & Cassie, our wonderful assistant organizers, will continue to be available to answer any questions you may have. You can contact them via the "Asst Organizer" link on the left side of our meetup home page.
For those who have asked about Nat'l Pit Bull Awareness Day - Yes, we WILL be doing a group event this year, however, it will be greatly scaled back from the huge All American Dog Fest event we had last year. I'm finalizing details, and hope to be able to send an official announcement next month.
Our normal group walks and indoor off-leash playtimes will most likely resume in October. If you are looking to connect with other group members, I encourage you to use our message boards to set up private play dates or smaller group walks.
If you have any questions for me, just shoot me an email (you can simply reply to this message). I'll be answering messages as quickly as the baby lets me once he arrives :)

MN Bully Lovers is a social network for bully-breed owners and their dogs.
Join our group to meet with local owners who understand the challenges and rewards of owning bully breeds. MN Bully Lovers hosts playtimes and other dog-friendly activities, as well as training & behavior workshops. Our discussion board provides a forum for questions, advice, and information on breed restrictions and/or legislation.
"Meetups" - Activities organized for the whole group. Click the Meetup Title for more info and to RSVP. Each meetup will specify if your RSVP should reflect the # of humans or # of dogs attending.
"Notes" - Dog-related activities or events going on around town. These are not group events, so you may or may not run into other MN Bully Lovers.
