Michael Vick Speaks Up About Dog Wars

If you're a Pittie lover like me you are probably less than thrilled about the application Dog Wars that is being sold in the Android Market.

Apparently, if you're an ex-dogfighter, you are also less than thrilled about it. Michael Vick has released a statement about the game...
 “I’ve come to learn the hard way that dogfighting is a dead-end street.  Now, I am on the right side of this issue, and I think it’s important to send the smart message to kids, and not glorify this form of animal cruelty, even in an Android app.”
I keep reading the statement over and over again trying to figure out what my opinion is on it. Truth is, I can't decide. On one side, I suppose it is a good thing because the people who look up to him for dog fighting may take a step back and think about what they're doing. On the other side, I wonder if he really means it. It is apparent that when this youtube video was shot he didn't care one bit about what he had done. I just don't know...

What do you think?

Dog Wars: Raise Your Dog to Beat the Best- A Review of the Horrifying Android Application

Lovely photo, huh? 

Today I was notified of this appalling application from the Android market entitled Dog Wars. I have an iPhone so I stole my boyfriend's android phone and downloaded the app. Not only is this a horrible concept for an application, it is just plain stupid.

It seems like every person that is promoting this lame excuse for a game are comparing it to the very popular and successful game called Angry Birds. This is probably the most moronic comparison I have EVER heard. Dog Fighting is a real live issue in the world today. Ask Michael Vick.  Let me ask you, when is the last time you picked up a bird and launched it at a pig? I'm guessing you haven't and in the slim chance that you have, drive your self on over here so I can personally punch you in the face.

Like I mentioned before, I actually downloaded the game. Without actually looking at it for myself, I would not be able to give a legitimate review of this game. Also I wanted to be able to give an accurate description of what actually happens in the game.

So let's get started...

The first step is to pick your character. Here are your choices..
The Icon: You've gone head to head with the hottest rappers in the game but still haven't blown up. Street cred turns gold records platinum and might be the missing link for your hip hop takeover. It's time to show the world how hood you really are...
So, in other words if you stick your dog into a pit with another dog and let them rip the flesh off of each other, you will make it big in the hip hop industry. What a great message to send, folks.

Next character is...
The Kid: Young, but a natural... and family-schooled in the game. Loyal and clean as a whistle, you've spent enough time in the shadows... known as "the kid", but you'll be "the man" on the streets. Stack some paper.
Next is...
The Hustler: Once a hustler, always a hustler... there's a million ways to get that cheddar - but the pits are your digs. After catching a case and serving three in the pen, you think you still got what it takes.
Now we have...
The Athlete (Michael Vick, anyone?): Growing up in the hood gave you the courage to become great on the grid iron. It also exposed you to some dark sports. Now that the days of scoring touchdowns are behind, you're looking for a thrill to fill the void.
Up next...
The Gangster: Tradition never graduates, and neither did you. Nearly a celebrity at the county jail, dogfighting is low key compared to your usual hood rat things.
Your sixth option is...
The Trainer: Most can't teach an old dog new tricks, but YOU can. With  bills piling up, it's time to get you back in the game. A good dog mixed with your training skills just might be your meal ticket.
And last, but not least...
The Politician: You've got enough dirt on local officials to almost get away with murder - and you live like it. The booze and women are just getting played out. Maybe it's time for a new hobby... and some new enemies.
Now let's meet the dogs...
The Athlete: Naturally healthy and strong, these dogs are real workhorses, but you'll have to make sure the stay aggressive in the pit/
The Bully: Big and stupid, these brutes can dominate by force alone, but they've got an appetite, and don't expect him to mind you without real training.
Off his Chain: Maniacs in the pit, there's no end to what these dogs will do to win.  When in shape, they are a force to be reckoned with... but don't expect them to stay healthy or make a real effort to learn.
Braveheart: Not the biggest or strongest dogs you can get, but they are born champions. Train and feed them regularly, and they could prove to be a real animal.
The Brains: With the proper training, it shouldn't take long to turn these natural learners into great fighters. But you'll have to really work with them to bring out that killer instinct.

After you have picked your character and your dog, you have to start training and feeding them.  The feeding options are water, dog food, premium food, and raw meat. And here are the descriptions on those items...
Dog Food $6 - Expired and tastes like crap,but it'll get the job done, right?
Premium Dog Food $10 - Best canned food on the market. - Filled with all of the right stuff.
Raw Steak $24 - Treat your dog like the champion it is, and give it a taste for blood. 
Other things you can purchase in the "store"...

  • First Aid Kit $21
  • Antibiotics $99
  • Steroid Shot $1,000
  • Steroid Cycle $5,000
  • Adrenaline Pen $10,000
  • Dog Whistle $20
  • Rope $50
  • Harness $100
  • Shock Collar $250
  • Several different types of tires at varying prices (for drag training)
  • Knife $50 The caption says: Protect yourself old school - cut a fool.
  • Several types of guns
  • Dog Tags
  • And for when you make the "big time" a Diamond Collar $10,000

 The training options include biting, dragging, and running.

After a little training and feeding you are ready to fight. You can now turn your status to ready to fight. Soon after, you'll get a request from someone for a fight. Then you have the option to say yes or in their terms, "bring it," or you can say no and "puss out."

As far as the actual fight goes, you take turns pushing an attack button with the other player and who ever has the stronger dog wins the fight.

There you have it, folks. That's the game.

Let me be honest with you, I am absolutely sick to my stomach right now. This game is absolutely repulsive. This not only shows dog fighting but it shows the "rewards" of dog fighting. It shows exactly how much money you can make from something as disgusting as this activity. I feel that it could be extremely influential in convincing some one to partake in this "sport."

Now this is what you need to do to stop this...
Please report the application by clicking here. The name of the application is Dog Wars and the developers are Kage Games LLC. You can also email press@google.com.

We can't let this game exist. Let's do our best to get rid of it forever.

Let my just say this, I am so happy that I am an iPhone user right about now.

Michael Vick: 'I Wouldn't Change Anything In My Life If I Could'

You know that feeling where you wish you could go back and change the most horrible thing you have ever done? Yeah? Well, Michael Vick doesn't. According to the Huffington Post, Michael Vick wouldn't change a thing. Here's what Vick has to say...
"I wouldn't change anything about my life if I could," he said. "As crazy as this may sound, going to prison really changed my life. I was able to go in and come out with a plan."
 Well, that is just wonderful, Mr. Vick.

Because you fought, killed, and ruined dogs lives you are now a "better person". It's very nice to hear that if you could back to that time where you and your pathetic little friends we're repeatedly SLAMMING that poor, innocent dog into the ground you wouldn't change it. Or perhaps when you were holding those poor dog's heads in buckets of water until they slowly stopped struggling, you wouldn't change that either.

You may think your a better man but in reality, you are just a selfish piece of scum like you always have been.

I'd Like You to Meet...

Sorry for my lack of blogging. However, I have a  very special post to write today. This is the introduction to our new banner dog.

I'd like you to meet...

Kima Marie

Kima Marie didn't always have an easy life. She was abused and used to breed in her younger days. Someone discovered the horror she was going through and bought her from the owner. By this time she still wasn't spayed and had another litter of puppies. Eventually, this second owner had to give up Kima because they lost their home to foreclosure. This is when Kima moved to her current home with people who love Pit Bulls. At first, she was very sad but snapped out of it after about two weeks. She has lived with her current family for about a year now. According to her human mom; she is funny, loves everyone, and is good with the other family dogs. She's also a great snuggler and kisser (well she IS a pit bull after all) and she likes sitting on people! Her favorite hobbies include going for walks, swimming, and car rides. Not to mention she is ADORA-BULL! Check out the pictures below!

Thank you Kima Marie for being apart of the new banner! :)

Are We All Just Like Michael Vick?

We all know what Michael Vick did to our beloved breed and we dislike/hate him for it. However, I just read an article that says that some of us may be more like Vick than we thought.

I would like you to read the article and give your opinions!
