Michael Vick must pay
Oct. 03, 2007
Dear Diary: I am really upset about something, and I want to take a stand. This Michael Vick guy has had me up at night, thinking about all the bad things I want to do to him (not like all the "bad" things I want to do to Jake Gylennhaal or anything, but like really bad things). I also keep thinking about all the poor dogs that are tied up, mistreated, sad, confused and unloved because their stupid bastard owners want to fight them. It has been well documented that I am an animal lover, and a bit of a tree hugger, and I also make no secret of not eating animals, but I think that this horrible dog fighting world that people like Michael Vick perpetuate, crosses into the lives and hearts of everyone else too. I think that maybe this story will highlight the horrible things that are done to these beautiful dogs, and how these horrible conditions and breeding and fighting methods are responsible for the way the dogs act, and not the dogs themselves. Maybe I can help find the silver lining in all this? Maybe we, the citizens of Austin, Pit lovers and non Pit lovers alike, can get together and do something good! Maybe we can put our differences aside and realise that there are too many poor little Blue-alikes in the shelter who need a home. Can we get together? Can we make this work? Can we help?
