Vick's Pit Bulls.

As some of you may be aware, BAD RAP (a SF pit rescue organization) handled the evaluation of Michael Vick's horribly abused and fought pit bulls and found that 22 out of the 40-some dogs that were impounded from Vick's backyard are adoptable sweetie-pies - amazingly, most even get along well with other dogs. Since the huge majority of fight-bust dogs are euthanized immediately (because they are automatically written off as vicious), these pooches have now narrowly escaped death twice (I don't know how many more lives a dog has!).

One of the rehabilitated pits, Hector, is featured on the BAD RAP website, looks just like Omie's big brother, and "loves to be held upside down, like a baby." Check out this lovely little video clip.

Oh, and I also found this great AP article, for those who would like to know more about the evaluation process. Yay for BAD RAP!
