Pit Bullish on Wine

Former NFL quarterback Michael Vick was convicted in 2007 for his involvement in dog fighting, and now the abused pit bulls are getting some vintage vindication.

Pit bull lover and artist Cyrus Mejia was commissioned by the Dog Lovers Wine Club -- yes, there is such a thing -- to paint wine labels depicting the 22 dogs rescued from Vick. The labels are emblazoned on the Vicktory Dogs wine collection sold by the club, the proceeds of which will fund campaigns to end dog fighting and to "speak out against legislation designed to ban specific dog breeds." $40/bottle at the Dog Lover's Wine Club.
