Dear God! Has the world gone insane? Oprah to have convicted felon and dog killer Michael Vick on her show

Nikhi Cormier on Facebook set this event up please check it out and attend! Send a clear message to all supporters of this, (and I use the term loosely “Man”) That we do not want to allow him to shove his filthy deeds under the rug, show Michael and Oprah that all the dogs he killed, dogs that could have had a normal happy life, if only they were not so unfortunate as to end up becoming “His” dogs. That the world will never forget, that he is still a killer! Please I urge you to send a letter to Oprah through the link below voicing your opinion, take a stand for his dogs, for all dogs that suffer abuse, neglect, and death at the hands of men like him!

Open letter to Oprah:

Dear Oprah,

It is reprehensible, that you should dedicate an entire show to someone who has yet to truly make amends for his actions, and aknowledge the countless people who have rallied around his former dogs. As a proclaimed animal lover, we would expect you to promote the countless hours and years which have been dedicated to these dogs. We expect you to do the right thing. You cannot, in what is your last year of the Oprah Winfrey show pass this by. You had a chance once, to dedicate a show to them, yet you appear to have buckled under pressure. There was no potential follow up, there was nothing. YET, here you CHOOSE to have a person who surmounts to a sociopathic personality who commited brutal, incomprensible and fatal acts on living beings. They are not “just” dogs, they never were. They live, breathe, bleed, die and feel just like you and I. When presented with an opportunity to find out how just ONE of the dogs was faring out, Mr. Vick had no time, and his people were less than kind to the man, Mr. Richard Hunter, who inquired.

Your choice of Mr. Vick as a guest is questionable. Especially when you had passed up an opportunity to present the dogs to the world, along with their family members and all the community work they are doing. People and dogs working together. This was something many people never thought would happen. But it has. This is such a remarkable and truly humbling experience, even for someone who sits from miles away, and can only imagine how humbling it truly is to experience these dogs overcome such tragic and devastating events. Mr. Vick is not the hero here, the dogs are. The story that needs to be told is the one of the dogs, and the countless people who work daily to ensure they are as they always should have been, safe and loved. Your choice leads one to think you also are jumping on the Vick bandwagon, promoting a person who should NEVER, EVER be anyone’s role model or in the public eye. He had the perfect chance to redeem himself last week, he chose not to. He does the bare minimum expected of him, when HE has chosen the life of fame, fortune and the public eye. He has done nothing but try to make money off of his crimes. He has the opportunity to use his power to speak on countless FB pages, where dog fighting is promoted. Pick one, any one. Or on his own page, where kids proudly boast of their fighting dogs, just like their hero. Where is his open letter to the countless people who saved his dogs? Or the ones who have to work harder because there is a setback in their new home? How about a ‘thank you’ to the people who now have his dogs? Or, I am so sorry for letting all these young kids down. He preaches in places in which he is comfortable, places he knows he will be well recieved. He will not, despite having the money, go into areas where dog fighting is prevelant (which is not only inner-cities), or anywhere he is not already going. He has the power to do more, as do you, Oprah. It is expected of ANYONE who chooses to put themselves in the place called celebrity to do more. You want to be a role model, then you should act like one. He is not. He is not seen where awards and applause are not to be given. A hero will stand and defend himself. A hero does the right thing, despite past wrongs. A hero only needs to reach out once, of his/her own heart.

I do not have a list of your questions, nor am I in your head, but I have to ask you, if you truly are a philanthropist, and an animal lover, then where is the show about the Vicktory dogs? There are still Vicktory dogs who have not yet earned their Good Citizenship, and remain unable to experience the one on one lives they should have always had. Simple things like going to bed with their person, or sitting on the sofa and sharing a hot dog. They are loved, but they are damaged by what they lived. They try, the same as you or I would to redeem themselves for something that is not their fault. Then there are the ones who have achieved, and who have gone on to do the impossible, like have a cat as a best friend, a little (human) sister to steal Cheerios from, a chance to feel love from countless children while helping them overcome shyness, or simply promoting a misunderstood breed. They are all amazing ambassadors to not only their breed or dogs (in general), they are amazing ambassadors to ANYONE who has triumphed over abuse and adversity. I am just one who realizes their importance in this world, can you? If you can find ONE owner of one of his former dogs, have you ANY plans to have them appear as well?

****the people attending this event do not believe that Mr.Vick should be in your guest chair. If he has to be, then we request you do a show on the true heroes this man once had the chance to know, but chose to try and destroy.


Tell me what you see…. Vicious killer or The family dog?

 Does this scream Vicious killer? A time bomb waiting to go off ?

I see a loving, animal friendly dog, that wants to nurture, just like good old “Sharky” the great grey pit bull from YouTube. Can you all make out the sweet little bunnies there? Do they look scared to you?

I guess it’s all in one’s ability to see truth vs hype. Now I don’t try to suggest there are not some pit bulls out there with less than stellar skills, but who’s fault is that? Ultimately we all know don’t we?

I saw this picture in a post recently and I just had to share it! Unfortunately there was no credit given to the owner of this lil beauty but who ever you are…., Bravo!

 So I ask myself all the time why do people see what they want to see and not what is real? The answer is simple…, first, some people like to stay in the dark ages, it’s simple there!

 Second, sometimes we all see only what is presented to us, we don’t ask for more, we don’t question what is shown, we simply accept it as fact. If the media says pit bulls are responsible for more attacks than any other breed, some of us just believe it because “the media never lies” right?

If we are told they are ticking time bombs, there is that faction in society, that simply thinks “A-hyuck, a-hyuck, a-hyuck!” they must be telling the truth!” (Sorry that was my best impression of goofy right there, cool huh?)

We believe that these dogs are “hard-wired” for aggression because they said so on tv, and tv is never wrong!

 And in it all, we forget that the voiceless victims, wait, they wait for us to progress to the point where we can say “Enough!”   “I want to know all the facts, and I want to see all the documents!”

I sigh…, and ask, will we ever get to that point? A place where we can take responsibility and shift the scope in the right direction, I am an eternal optimist I guess, I think one day soon we will, I hope!

I want to start a new society, come on!  No! Not some Jim Jones kind of cult! just a little piece of the planet where all the sane, logical folks live! Where we go” Thunder Dome” on your ass if you try to spill your dreck, and BS on our front lawns! 

It could happen! Don’t mock me people!

Have a great night!
