Petsmart Charities Grant to help pitbulls

I just read about a pilot program that is being launched at 5 shelters throughout the country to help pit bulls.  Best Friends received a grant from Petsmart Charities for this program that is being modeled after a successful 2009 program.

Many people do not know that pitbulls score higher than most breeds on temperment tests.

This is great news for pitbulls and for everyone who is working towards a day when there will be “no more homeless pets”.

Michael Vick cancels Oprah interview

Two days ago, I mentioned in this blog that Michael Vick was going to appear on the Oprah show.

Today, I read he has cancelled for “personal reasons”.  Read into it what you will.

there is no love like the love a dog gives,

it is selfless and pure,

it is compassionate and always well-timed,

it never dies and has no boundaries…

if only we could love one another in that way…

Michael Vick on Oprah, February 24, 2011

I just read something in USA Today that Michael Vick will be a guest on the Oprah show on Feb. 24th.  It was stated that he has been working with the Humane Society counseling young people about the reality of dog fighting.

It will be very interesting to see this show.  I know Vick’s “people” have claimed that he has been repentant and has been doing some humane volunteer work, but I have never read anything confirming these statements.

If he really wants to make a difference, there is a lot he could do and many wonderful organizations that would help, but in all this time, I have never heard anything confirming that he is out there talking with kids.  It appears to be all a PR cover-up.
