From the Author
While the events leading up to the rescue of Michael Vick's victims were terrible, the stories that followed are filled with hope, determination, and love on the part of both the dogs and the amazing people who have devoted so much time and effort on the animals' behalf. I felt honored to meet Audie and his family and to experience his new loving and exciting world by his side. I'm a sucker when it comes to dogs, and Audie won my heart right off the bat. When my photographer, Bill, and I first arrived at the house, Audie barked and barked, then ran away, turned and barked again and ran away. He just wasn't sure what to do about this strangers. But within a half hour, he lay next to me on the couch, his head resting against my thigh as he slept, trusting me completely. Who wouldn't fall in love?

Audie is one of the "Vicktory Dogs" formerly owned by Michael Vick. Like all the Vick dogs, Audi is an individual and a delightful dog and family member who will surprise you and change the way see "pit bull" dogs forever! No matter what age you are, read it.
It's not long, technical or complicated.
It just goes to show Pit Bulls are NOT mean or vicious.
The ones like that did NOT start out like that. The people who own them made them that way!
Anybody who does this to dogs should be hung out to dry!!!!
Thank Goodness for the Wonderful people who got Vick's dogs!!
Puppy dogs are unconditional love wrapped in fur
BTW~~I call my dogs "puppies" no matter their age b/c they are my babies!
