Three years ago
Three years ago today the judge in the Michael Vick case lifted the gag order regarding the fate of the Bad Newz Kennel dogs, and now we all know what happened. Today, Best Friends and BAD RAP are sharing stories about the dogs on FB. I can't get enough. The stories can also be viewed on their websites. This case was so big because it was the first time in history that dogs taken from a fight bust weren't simply euthanized, but rather evaluated and viewed in terms of a victim rather than than a violent predator. It has turned the precedence on its head. Now dogs rescued from fight busts are evaluated and looked at for rehabilitation. It is all good news, except that dog fighting continues. I keep praying that someday all animals will get treated with the love and respect they deserve. It will be a good day when that happens.
