Dear Michael Vick,
I have been holing out hope that you were not involved in the dog fighting underworld, however as this week has progressed I am finding it hard to believe that you were not involved. This deeply saddens me.
You are a great athlete and have been given a number of opportunities that most people are not. You get to play a game for a living. I would play fetch if it paid better at over $8 million a year and a $22million signing bonus I think I could play some fetch.
Michael we dogs do not like to fight in fact we hate it. We want to be loved, sit in peoples laps have out ears scratched etc. We don’t want to fight each other. So much of your society is based on conflict. Dog society is different we want peace. It disgusts me to read of some of the things you are accused of doing. I can only hope they are not true.
You have been given a gift which allows you to do almost anything in life. Breeding and training dogs to fight is just wrong. If you want to work with dogs try something challenging, train guide dogs or if that is not tough enough for you try training police dogs or even bomb sniffing dogs. Any idiot can train a dog to fight but try getting on to lead a person across the street without getting run over. That is a challenge.
