Chase Utley rocks! [Chrissy]

I could not be more upset, furious and disappointed with Michael Vick and his counterparts. The practice of dog fighting and the associated behaviors and circumstances are reprehensible and inexcusable.

On a brighter note, someone is using their celebrity for an excellent cause and I could not be happier.

Officials said a young dog was beaten, kicked and then set on fire Thursday in the 100 block of Hirst Street in West Philadelphia. She has extensive burns all over her face.Witnesses said they saw six teenage boys torturing the animal. One witness called police. It's believed the dog is about 7 months old.

The little pit bull-boxer mix is being treated at the SPCA facility in the Hunting Park section of Philadelphia... Jen Utley just happened to be at the SPCA when the puppy was brought in. She and her husband, Phillies second basemen Chase Utley, are paying for the puppy's medical bills and rehabilitation. Utley is a dog lover. After seeing the dog, she said to the facility’s workers: “You guys don't have to worry about it. Focus on the lawsuit, finding these people. Focus on promoting awareness and getting more dogs off the street.”
