Sarasota, FL (RPRN) 7/09/2009 —Genevieve, founder and president of the canine activist group Dogs United against Discrimination and Unfairness (DUDU â€“ â€œYouâ€™re either walking with DUDU or stepping in itâ€), today declared a fatwa against Michael Vick, the former NFL player convicted and jailed on animal cruelty charges stemming from a dog-fighting syndicate. Vick is now under home confinement until July 20, at which point he could resume his football career.
In a barktated press release, Genevieve stated, â€œTo any team considering signing Michael Vick, please be aware that DUDU has placed a fatwa on him. This fatwa obliges any dog worldwide to hunch over and poop immediately upon seeing Mr. Vick on television. I shouldnâ€™t have to draw you a picture of the messy situation you will create by having Mr. Vick play on your team, and of the huge negative impact it would have on your sportâ€™s sponsors.â€
This is not the first time DUDU has involved itself in sports. It recently headed a campaign to eliminate demeaning sports-team nicknames like â€œTimberwolves,â€ â€œBulldogs,â€ â€œHuskies,â€ â€œTerriers,â€ and many more.
More canine complaints against humans can be found in Genevieveâ€™s newest book, Small Dog, Big Life: Memoirs of a Furry Genius (Simon Spotlight Entertainment; May, 2009), which was translated from Doggerel into English by her assistant, Dr. Dennis Fried.
