Good News Out of Bad Newz
Sports Illustrated trades swimsuits for collars with a story on Vick pit bull rescue.

I was thrilled to see the heart-stopping mug of a velvety pit bull named Jasmine on the cover of the latest Sports Illustrated. Beats the heck out of girls in bikinis. In the story, Jim Gorant checks in on the fate of a few of the 47—out of 51—ill-starred dogs rescued from Michael Vick’s dog-fighting compound. (Check out Bark's earlier story on the rescued pups.) Here’s a thought from Donna Reynolds, the executive director and cofounder of Bad Rap, to take from this bad experience into the new year. “Vick showed the worst of us, our bloodlust, but this rescue showed the best.”
