Update on the rescued pit bulls in Oakland


I received a very kind email, with this picture, from Donna Reynolds (third from the right), the Executive Director of Bad Rap, of six of the ten dogs they rescued from the Vick compound. Unless I'm mistaken, that's Hector in the center stretching out to kiss the dog next to him. I don't know how Leslie Nuccio, his foster "mother" is going to let go of him when it's time for him to be adopted. They are so clearly attached to each other.

Donna tells me they're very happy to be able to talk about the dogs after all this time and thrilled with the outcome of the case.

Find more photos and stories about the dogs on Bad Rap's Blog.

But what about Michael Vick's falcons?
No one seems to care.

Hi there,
I found you through sweet Lidy. I love animal people! We adopted one dog, one cat and the other cat adopted us - due to some neglect from dog owners (she's been happy for 7 years here with us though!).
Animal people rock - great blog!

Hi Melissa, Tracie and 02 (you Mad Scandinavian, you)!

I really am a terrific person!

Seriously, I am a hopeless animal lover, especially when it comes to dogs. You can tell a lot about a person around dogs - their demeanor and the animals'.

02, you're right; no one seems to care. Maybe they should put them in a ring and bait them with Britney and Paris. Maybe then they'd be better than 4-12. And someone needs to teach those girls a lesson.

Tracie! If you're adopted by an animal, you're charmed.
