So Vick is out..
Well, out of prison. Wow, to me it went by pretty fast. He did his time..still doesn't make up for what he INTENTIONALLY did to those dogs. I know several NFL athletes and I know even when they do something so minor, it get's blow up in the media. I know this. But Pit Bulls are my love, my favorite breed. 2 of them are like human children to us. I got an email from the President of the Humane Society of the United States and it says to give Vick a chance...that he wants to work with the HS and do public service announcements. I really hope he does it! I really do. Kids need to know that not only do you get in trouble and go to jail and lose you job and lots of personal possessions, but IT IS WRONG to hurt a living creature. Its not cool, its not fun, it doesn't make you more of a man. I see so much volunteering, so many dogs that have been fought, or used as bait, its SAD. I really hope he will get out there an do some good. BUT I think he needs to do this and show and prove that indeed he is remorseful, not that he lost a lot of money, but that is not right to KILL those dogs in that manor. I think he needs to do this BEFORE being reinstated in the NFL..That's what I think. He needs to do some good first, then if an owner wants to take that chance, well, that is up to them. Again, I know how athletes are scrutinized in the media and by fan's, TRUST ME, I know all too well. But purposely killing an animal, a dog, a breed that I have sleeping by my side at this very moment..whoa..it's hard to even look at him. I've met Vick a couple of times, he was a decent guy those 2 times..but I hope I don't 'meet' him again unless its to introduce him to a group of kids that think fighting Pit Bulls is 'cool'. I really hope he does something to make some good come out of this. Again, two of those beautiful creatures are sleeping so gently beside me right now...it's hard for me to process what Vick did, but he did his time..and now he has the chance to prove that he is indeed SORRY.
