Dozens of Vancouver dog owners gathered with their canines at Kits Pool to raise awareness for responsible dog ownership after the stabbing death of Pandora, a pitbull.
Many were shocked after the dog was stabbed to death by another dog owner last month along Kits beach.
Walk organizer Erin Filtness is the owner of a pitbull and says imagining herself in the situation of the woman who lost hers is what motivated the initiative.
“My boyfriend and I talked about it, you know, that night and you know if anything was going to happen to her, you know, we don’t know what we would do. He’s like I don’t know what I would do, he’s like I would just jump in front of the knife and let him stab me because it’s your family.”
The walk was organized with the not for profit group Hug A Bull and also aims to teach people about responsible dog ownership.
