Michael Vick

My Kids DESERVE

NFL star Michael Vick wants to own a dog again -- and five years after his conviction for illegal dog fighting, he can legally get one -- but the question is ... should he?

The Philadelphia Eagles QB was on Piers Morgan's show last night, and said he would like to get a dog for his kids.

After Vick served 19 months in federal prison ... he was banned from owning dogs for 3 years. That ban is about to expire, and Vick thinks having a dog could be "therapeutic" ... for his children. He told Piers, "I can't take that dream away from them. That's selfish on my behalf."

One positive? Vick says he won't let his kids get a pit bull.

Still, we gotta ask ...

Why doesn't anyone remember his children had a dog. He fought that dog in front of his children and murdered their pet in front of them. So, who in the home is going to show the children how to care for the dog? No one. We learn from our parents. Just because you want things, does not mean you should have them. Maybe the Boys and Girls Clubs of America can hire Jerry Sandusky, also.

His children had a dog. He fought the dog in front of them and murdered his pet in front of them by throwing it into a firepit. Who is going to teach them responsible pet ownership? No one. Maybe Jerry Sandusky will be hired by the Boys and Girls' Clubs of America. Same concept. Which, by the way, these Clubs are receiving 10% of the profits from Vick's clothing line. Money talks. Sick. Sick

No dog for you Michael Vick, not even a poodle!! The only voice a dog has is a bark, he can't say this mother f!cker just kicked me in the head or hasn't feed me in days or all the other horrible things he did for YEARS to dogs! He did his time cause he got caught and had no choice other wise he would still be enjoying his HOBBIE. Let your kiddys know WHY daddy can't or shouldn't bring a puppy home!

You've got to be kidding. Allowing this p.o.s to have a dog because ...... his kid deserves a dog? What a b*llsh*t reason. That, alone, should keep him from 'owning' any dog in this lifetime.

Tell him to get a cat. Better yet ask him to have a child molester move next door.
