Hello from Ken, Brando, Sula and Zephyr

Postby KenFoster » Thu Jul 31, 2008 2:04 pm

My name is Ken Foster and I swear I used to be a member of this forum, but today I couldn't log in, so I'm starting over again. (And, I was actually trying to respond to a discussion about me.)

I have a pit/Dane named Brando, a regular pit named Sula and a rottie mix named Zephyr. I'm a writer, and my books include Dog Culture (2002), The Dogs Who Found Me (2006) and Dogs I Have Met (2007). My books deal increasingly with pit bulls, and I've also written about the breed (and the politics) for Salon, Bark, and other publications, and I've been interviewed about pits for NPR, ABC, and dozens of radio shows across the country.

For the past two years I have also done events and fundraisers for pit friendly groups around the country, and I've spoken at the first national BSL conference in Chicago in 2006, the Best Friends "dangerous dog" conference in 2006 in Denver, and I've done a holiday fundraiser with PBRC for the past two years.

After raising money for all of these other groups, I started the Sula Foundation here in New Orleans earlier this year.

Glad to have you here, Ken!

I think you've already answered my question in your introduction. So let me just say it's good to have another articulate ambassador of the breed we all love so much.

Ah, so Sula's one of them plain ole' boring regular pits? ;)

Glad to have you join us!

(See that, gang? If we gossip, they will come!)
