The folks at Battle Against Dogfighting wanted to make a statement, so they enlisted their fearless volunteers. Cleo and Vinnie made an appearance again for the group at the fundraiser screening of "Vicktory to the Underdog" and with most movie premiers the stars for the evening were DECKED OUT!
Both Cleo and Vinnie were treated like royalty, greeting fans, walking the "red carpet" as BAD leader Jill Brown started her opening remarks. I spoke briefly about the CBBR Sanctuary program that Vinnie is a part of. Jill spoke of the efforts BAD is making in public education against dog fighting and public outreach. Of course she also requested that Cleo come up on stage and show how much fun the Vick chew toy is. I am shocked of course that my trainer has not taught us "Get Mike" yet as one of our commands. Vinnie on the other hand helped Times Cinema owner Larry Widen take the money for the evening and give out tickets to the show.
Both kids settled in with their popcorn on the comfy couches for the film and oddly enough, there is really no way to socialize your dog for a movie theater. Thankfully Vinnie and Cleo seemed to roll nicely with the punches. Well that is until the lights came up and Cleo forgot there were other people. But she found her bearings quickly enough.
Now a little bit about the movie. Brandon Bond would make most people cross the street, even with out his dog. He is a tattoo artist and a pit bull rescuer. Just one look at him walking would make many people nervous, trust me I know. My husband has long hair, tattoos and rarely smiles. His love of pibbles comes from understanding the underdog position. The film focus' on Brandon, his life, his rescue work and his work specifically with the Vick dogs he took in. His journey took him over to California to meet with other Pibble advocates who live their lives in a position of the underdog. Looking at people like Danny Trejo and his wife Debbie, Michael Berryman, Pixie, and my fave celeb in the film Tia Maria Torres. These are people who see pibbles for what they are and understand the looks of fear. Amazingly touching, blunt, even profane at times, Bond puts forth an honest point of view. His rescue All Or Nothing based out of all places, Georgia, where Vick earned his fame. It is honest and honesty isn't always pretty, but Bond's passion and love for the breed is shown. I found myself laughing and tearing up at the same time. This is a movie all pibble lovers need to see.
