Mike Vick is trying to get the courts to allow him to own a dog "for his kids". After reading this book, I hope that the courts stick up for the dogs and NEVER allow this "person" to own another dog again. He says he has learned his lesson, but he is a slick and accomplished liar!This book was so sad and horrifying. The way these dogs were treated and even killed was horrendous to read and several times I wanted to quit reading this book. This book proves that animals have a voice and if we are willing to listen we will hear them speak to us. It also proves that not many dogs from such circumstances are irredeemable.
