Michael Vick

Yeah, We Have a Dog

Michael Vick
has finally said squarely ... his family does indeed have a dog.

There's been a lot of controversy over whether Vick -- who served hard time for brutally killing multiple dogs, should own one again.

Vick says, "I understand the strong emotions by some people about our family's decision to care for a pet.  As a father, it is important to make sure my children develop a healthy relationship with animals."

Vick goes on, "I want to ensure that my children establish a loving bond and treat all of God's creatures with kindness and respect.  Our pet is well cared for and loved as a member of our family."

Vick continues, "This is an opportunity to break the cycle.  To that end, I will continue to honor my commitment to animal welfare and be an instrument of positive change."

This poll that TMZ took is highly flawed. If you look at the comments left here then you are telling me 64 percent of the people that voted are in favor of this idiot having another dog. It is bad enough that the legal system must have decided to look the other way.I wonder how much that cost. Sad!!

Your a disgrace to your team and to society! You should NEVER be allowed the privilege of owning an animal again!

I guess it must seem like a reasonable deduction that people can change, but I've never known someone who was raised to think of animals as objects to change their mindset. And especially when it comes to abuse.

==========================
LOCK VICK UP FOREVER... or at least make it illegal for him to own or be alone in the presence of ANY animal.
