Say Goodnight to Vick’s Pit Bulls

If there’s one thing we’ve all learned … it’s that you don’t mess with a man’s best friend. And you especially don’t mess with said man’s friend when they’ve been through war-like situations together. It is with that in mind, that I’m saddened to say that Michael Vick’s fighting dogs may be euthanized.

“Almost 100 percent” of animals seized in dogfighting investigations are euthanized because they have a level of aggression that makes them dangerous pets and neighbors, said John Goodwin, a spokesman for the Humane Society of the United States.

“It’s simply not fair to someone who has a black lab or a Yorkie to have a fighting dog next door because if that dog gets loose, he’s going to … kill that person’s pet,” Goodwin said, making it clear he was speaking in generic terms only.

Wow, this is no joke. 66 dogs were seized, 55 of which were pit bulls. Yeah, somehow I don’t think I want my golden retriever getting into a scuffle with them, capiche? Oh, and for the record, anyone else find it odd that they use a treadmill to train these dogs? OK, good, just checking.

    Actually, treadmills are a good thing — those dogs have a lot of energy, and sometimes that hyped up aggression is the result of being pent up all day long. Getting multiple long walks would be preferable, but barring that, a treadmill is better than nothing. (Don’t you watch the Dog Whisperer? Cesar Milan in the man!)

    I see. One question though, are they mini-sized dog-specified treadmills? Or are they people sized ones?

    People-sized ones. I mean, dog-sized ones would be weird.

    Dude, I’m serious, set the Tivo — The Dog Whisperer kicks ass.

    I have an idea, instead of euthanizing them, let’s have em fight to the death!

    I heard they found a bunch of bait dogs.

    My buddy in GA was telling me that dog-fighting down there is as common as a peach, but that most people don’t use bait dogs ’cause it’s so damn cruel.

    I have a better idea… let’s keep the dogs and euthanize Michael Vick and his sub-human friends.

    The dog whisperer is throwback. Read up on it.

    Unfortunately I don’t feel that Vick will get hit very hard. There are too many money hungry lawyers. Think about it, OJ Simpson? What about the people that brutally murder children and get maybe a few years behind bars? The justice system isn’t made up for the people anymore. I just hope that Vick’s lawyers do whats right, they live in this country too.
