Thanks for posting this!
One of my best friends works at Best Friends (LOL) and she has had the privilege of watching these dogs progress from day one. I'm so glad that these dogs are being cared for by loving and patient people. I visited her last year and got to meet some of these fantastic dedicated people.
I was at the gym last night when a promo for the show came on the tv and my eyes started to well up looking at how the baby steps are adding up, especially for Cherry. The guy next to me and spoke up saying how great this was for the dogs, so we chatted a bit about how we both had rescue dogs and why that is so important. I hope this tv program not only educates people about the horrific practice, but also shows that not all dogs are a lost cause (regardless of breed). I'm so proud of the work being done out in Utah. Frankly, if I had to see in person the damage done I would personally find Michael Vick and slap him around a bit!
