The One w/BSL
We recorded this episode months ago. Before Denver even knew they would be on the ballot. Before the campaign. Before the WIN. So when you hear any references to Denver, think 'post spring time loss due to Mayoral veto'.Breed Specific Legislation is disturbing and makes my soul sad. For me it roots down so much deeper then dogs perceived as pit bulls because I feel it's a direct reflection of how our society deals with things we fear. Exclude it. Push it out. Try to pretend it doesn't exist. These types of thoughts are humanity problems as far as I'm concerned. The cool thing is that when we see it happening in one area and we identify it's wrong, that gives us an opportunity to explore where else it's happening and consider how we feel about it. So that's the challenge for today. Learn. Identify. Consider. When we know better we do better right?!? I love that you're here to elevate your advocacy with us!

The One w/out A Title
I LOVE being a Pit Bull Advocate. It's hard to put into words how much I cherish talking to people about their experiences and working together to find solutions to the host of problems that plague the animals we care so deeply for. However, there are aspects of advocacy that are so hard. In doing the first 10 episodes of this podcast, I'm realizing that I've forgotten how difficult being an advocate has been... and how desensitized I've become to the plethora of problems. These things are new, raw and exceedingly difficult for so many of you on a daily basis.Today's topic is likely going to be brand new information for the majority of our listeners. It's a very sensitive topic (hence the title... or lack there of) and a hard one to talk about... even with many years under my belt. Please reach out with questions! Don't ever hesitate to contact me! firstname.lastname@example.orgMy hope with this episode is that you listen all the way through and that it allows you to elevate your advocacy a little more!HUGS!Michelle Serocki Visit the website for advocacy campaigns that can come to your city!pitbulladvocates.org Subscribe to our enews for updates and announcements!JOIN ENEWS
The One w/Replace Denver BSL
Denver, Colorado has a ban on dogs perceived as pit bulls that has been in place for 30 years! Thousands of innocent dogs have perished, been displaced and suffered greatly simply because of their appearance.On November 3rd, the citizens of Denver have an opportunity to change the future for all pit bull type dogs! I had the privilege of visiting Denver a few weeks ago to work along side the beautiful people of Replace Denver BSL - a group of some of the most hard working and dedicated folks I've ever met.Enjoy my interview with Quinn, one of the organizers and founders of RDBSL. We had a great time sitting back and shooting the sh!t about Breed Specific Legislation, years of preparation, a devastating knock down and the monumental fortitude and perseverance it's taken to see the historical ballot measure 2J added to Denver's 2020 election!Successful replacement of this ban is inexplicably important to the health and happiness of dogs known as pit bulls... but I have to say that regardless of the outcome on November 3rd...I want ALL who took part in this campaign to know that you DID NOT FAIL. You gave everything you had and that's all you can do. There should be no regrets. I'm honored to have worked along side you.

The One w/RooYori ~ Part 2
Did you enjoy the first episode with Roo? (don't forget you're leaving judgements at the door lol) I hope you did! I certainly enjoyed recording it. Wallace and Hector were some very special puppers that I was incredibly fortunate to know and love. When I think of mind changing dogs, they're two that come into my head quickly... after my Capone of course. ;)Time for PART 2! I don't know about you, but I've been watching American Ninja Warrior from the beginning. I've always loved watching people do things that would break every bone and tear every tendon in my body... I'm quite literally the adult who has a hard time walking and chewing gum... HOWEVER I can talk your ear off while doing anything! Once competitive talking is a thing WATCH OUT!Anywhoooo, to have a friend and a top notch advocate on ANW is SO EXCITING! I had to get the scoop so I could pass it on to you! This interview was recorded before we knew if competitions would happen this year. Thankfully they worked it out and made it happen. SPOILER ALERT! He's already made it through the city finals!Learn more about Roo and how he's helping animals at rooyori.comHUGE THANKS to Roo for being my very first guest!
