Burque Babes and Bullies calendar

BY ERIN PENNER

Anyone who lives in Albuquerque or the surrounding areas is likely aware of the city’s pit bull problem. But before you jump to a conclusion, it’s not what you think. Though there have been a few unfortunate instances caused by irresponsible pet owners, the pit bull problem is one that is based on a good amount of prejudice, fear and an alarming amount of misinformation. This has resulted in pit bulls or pit bull mixes making up nearly 25 percent of the city’s animal shelter population. And because of their low adoption rate, many of these dogs are euthanized.

‘Burque Babes and Bullies is a unique local organization dedicated to saving the breed from unnecessary persecution, as well as helping RAAP (Responsibly Adopting Albuquerque’s Pit bulls) to rescue dogs who have suffered abuse.

BBB was started by Kassie Brown, herself a proud owner of three pit bulls, Kuna, Delilah and Baby Bruno, a result of her time spent volunteering in Albuquerque’s animal shelters and experiencing first-hand just how many pit bulls are put down. Together with 11 other pit bull owners, Brown and the Babes have produced a pin-up style 2009 hanging wall calendar, featuring photographs of local female pit bull owners and their “bullies,” shot by former Local iQ photographer D.S. Canning

Pit owner Rachel Starr graces the calendar as Ms. May. She and her husband, Ezra, have long made it a point to reach out to those who fear pit bulls and show them that the breed is, in reality, sweet, loving, playful, obedient and smart. Ms. December, Tiffany Yeitrakis, owns two pit bulls, both of which were rescued from the streets. Yeitrakis told Local iQ recently that Gus and Megan are part of the family now and she couldn’t imagine her life without them. By producing and selling the calendar, these models/pit bull lovers-turned-activists hope to educate both future pit bull owners and their sometimes misinformed neighbors of the true nature of the breed.

Proceeds from calendar sales will benefit RAAP and are available for sale ($15) at select locations. For more information, where to purchase the calendar, facts about pit bulls or to donate to the organization, visit burquebabesandbullies.com.
