Thanks, Philly.

So, Michael Vick signed with the Eagles. (Sigh of relief.)

The buzz here in Baltimore had been that the Ravens were considering him—or at least, they hadn't ruled him out. I know everyone's got an opinion on whether Vick should be allowed back in the NFL at all, but suffice it to say I'm thrilled the Ravens didn't sign him. Baltimore has a dogfighting problem that is, how shall we say, considerable. Our own sweet Lucy was rescued as a puppy from a fighting operation. To bring Vick to a city plagued with the cruelty he bankrolled and perpetrated would have been an insult. Worse still, several of the dogs he tormented are being fostered here via Recycled Love, the rescue that brought us together with Lucy. Philly, you can have him.

This beautiful girl is either Sweet Jasmine or Sweet Pea (I think it's Jasmine). Far from the horrors of Vick's kennel, she's loving life with her new family in Baltimore. Photo courtesy of The Sun.
