Kenna - I'm not sure if you will open the "what are you reading" post again since you already contributed, but I am really curious about this...to the point that it was worth making a new post over it!
Will you let us know about this when you have a chance?
"The Lost Dogs" by Jim Gorant - it's the story of the rescuing of the pitbulls that were taken when they broke up NFL-player Michael Vick's dog-fighting kennel. It was really well done...
I've not heard of this one...
Can you for a minute pretend you own a pit bull and tell me if it is totally heart breaking? Like would you be able to get through a page without sobbing?
I'm always intrigued by the success stories of the dogs that were rescued from Vick's "kennel" but when I run across stories about dogs like Georgia (not sure if she was mentioned in the book, but she's the one whose story broke my heart the most, and left a mark in my memory), I often can't read anymore.
Just curious if this book would do the same, or if I could actually get through it.
I heard a lot of people recommend this book. But they mentioned that there's a section of it where he talks about how Vick was killing the dogs (who lost the fights). I don't think I can ever bring myself to read it without crying for days about it. So I'm curious what you think about the book, and if it hard to read too?
