While sports commentators praise Michael Vicks’ successful return to football, they too often forget about the dogs he tortured for so long.
I’m not one to pile on – to use a football term – but since these commentators are stuck on praising Vick, I feel the need to report on the heroes of the story.
This PBS video is worth every minute of the viewing –
Many of the dogs he tortured are doing great now. Their story is one of true redemption and offer examples of the true nature of dogs and their individual self-awareness and state of consciousness.
We can’t lump all dogs as behaving one way. We can’t lump all dogs in a particular breed as behaving one way. We can’t do this anymore than we can try to state that all people are the same or all people from a particular country are the same.
Dogs – and other animals – are so much more than society has given them credit for. And the video above offers more evidence to the importance of what I’ve talked about for some time now – self-awareness and state of consciousness.
The former fighting dogs featured in this video are a far greater success story than that of Michael Vick.
