Celebri-Dogs Wallace and Hector Celebrate National Pit Bull Awareness Day at Healthy Spot Marina Del Rey on October 30th

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 24, 2012

Pit bull celebrity dogs Hector and Wallace, along with their adopter Andrew “Roo” Yori, are making their first appearance in Southern California to celebrate National Pit Bull Awareness Day with a book signing and cocktail reception October 30th from 6-8pm at Healthy Spot in Marina Del Rey.

Both dogs have milestones to celebrate this year. Wallace is the subject of a new book, authored by Jim Gorant, which chronicles his heroic journey from unwanted shelter dog to a flying disc national champion. Hector, who was lucky enough to survive Michael Vick’s infamous Bad Newz Kennels, is marking the five year anniversary of his release to rescue.

Hector, who was featured in Gorant’s previous award winning book The Lost Dogs, has earned both a Canine Good Citizen and Therapy Dog certification. Wallace and Hector, along with adopter Yori, are on a mission to change the often negative stereotypes of pit bull type dogs.

The first five attendees at the reception will receive a free copy of the new book Wallace: The Underdog Who Conquered a Sport, Saved a Marriage, and Championed Pit Bulls–One Flying Disc at a Time autographed by Yori. Additional books will be available for sale and autographs, while supplies last.

The celebration is sponsored by Found Animals Foundation and Angel City Pit Bulls and generously hosted by Healthy Spot.

Healthy Spot is located at 4718 Lincoln Blvd. Marina Del Rey, CA 90292.

Interview and broadcast opportunities will be available.

For detailed information about the cocktail reception and book-signing event, contact Teresa Buyikian at (213) 925-8188. Attendees may RSVP to this event on Facebook.

“A Good Dog”

Katz has taken a lot of flak for his story of Orson, a troubled dog ultimately put to sleep for attacking three people, but I found this the story of a man fiercely devoted to trying to change the behavior of a "broken dog," to the point of buying a farm and spending hundreds of hours doing everything he could to discover how to fill the dog’s life so that he would not feel the need to lash out unexpectedly. This is written with great love, and having been in the position of having to make that difficult decision about how far to go to keep a dog alive, I could sympathize and applaud him for his actions throughout his relationship with Orson. This is a good dog story– but lay in the Kleenex before you get to the end!

The dog ate my homework, and how. It had been four years since she destroyed an LAPL copy of The Golden Compass. I let my guard down. And this innocent (and apparently scrumptious) classic of library science suffered. This is so not how I intended to learn all about the billing process for damaged materials at the library that employs me.
