Yep, Michael Vick has launched a clothing line “V7”. The fact that this man still is employed with the NFL and receives star treatment on a regular basis is disgusting enough, but now he wants to capitalize on this and have a clothing line. So kids all over this great nation can not only idolize this football “star” but now they can also look like him, too! And maybe, just maybe, one day they can be as cool as him and murder dozens of dogs in horrific ways. Yeah…
Please join me in boycotting this man and his clothing line. Never forget what this man did – and what he is capable of.
“The details that got to me then and stay with me today involve the swimming pool that was used to kill some of the dogs. Jumper cables were clipped onto the ears of underperforming dogs, then, just like with a car, the cables were connected to the terminals of car batteries before lifting and tossing the shamed dogs into the water. Most of Vick’s dogs were small – 40lbs or so – so tossing them in would’ve been fast and easy work for thick athlete arms. We don’t know how many suffered this premeditated murder, but the damage to the pool walls tells a story. It seems that while they were scrambling to escape, they scratched and clawed at the pool liner and bit at the dented aluminum sides like a hungry dog on a tin can.
I wear some pretty thick skin during our work with dogs, but I can’t shake my minds-eye image of a little black dog splashing frantically in bloody water … screaming in pain and terror … brown eyes saucer wide and tiny black white-toed feet clawing at anything, desperate to get a hold. This death did not come quickly. The rescuer in me keeps trying to think of a way to go back in time and somehow stop this torture and pull the little dog to safety. I think I’ll be looking for ways to pull that dog out for the rest of my life.”
