Pooches: Miss M and Mr B Bring Happiness to the 2014 Chicago St. Patrick's Day Parade

But the truth is, I had such strong feelings when I had never even met a pit bull before. 
It was only after meeting my first pit bull-type dog at an adoption event--then my second, then my third-- that I realized they really are just like any other type of dog (though I now think even more amazing!).
Once in costume, Mr. B falls into character
Part of the fun of our adventures around the city is letting other people meet pit bull-type dog for the first time. This weekend we hit up Chicago's Downtown St. Patrick's Day Parade, which is such a huge event, the city even dyes the river green. The parade draws people from around the country, and even from other countries. A lot of people who met the pups wanted to know what kinds of dogs they were, and a couple of people even reveled in their own 'first time they met a pit bull' experience.
As one man from another country said "This is Pitbull? Pitbull is good!".
Mr. B brought along his camera to document the experience from his point-of-view. My favorite part is the paparazzi on the bridge.
Here are the pups bringing happiness to St. Patrick's Day revelers,with appropriate accompanying music.

Did you know it has been proven watching cute pet videos really does make people happier and increase productivity at work? Feel free to check out this one (the one on Vimeo), this one, and this one too.

That is so cute! I love that Mr. B is wearing a camera so you can see everything from his point of view. What a great idea. Looks like everyone loved the pups!

Lately I've grown tired of the "Happy" song but I loved hearing it with your video. It sure did make me happy. Mr. B and Miss M. are the best ambasadogs.

This is such wonderful Pittie PR! I live in Austin and walk my pittie, Felix, through the SXSW crowds each year. So many people comment that petting Felix is their first experience touching a pitbull, and that his sweet personality is not what they were expecting thanks to media hype. It's so rewarding to have him play a part in changing hearts and minds about these cuddly creatures.

Looks like a fun time!

Henry also celebrated St. Patrick's Day this weekend. He didn't go to a parade, but he did get dressed up...
