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."

The way I see it he's as bad as a pedophile. He cannot be rehabilitated and does not deserve the right to have pets. The only thing he's sorry about is that he got caught!

And the first time the dog has an accident in the house, it will either be body slammed against a concrete wall in a fit of rage, or it will be found HANGING in the yard, or ELECTROCUTED, just like his fighting dogs were KILLED by VICK. And his poor kids will probably suffer the same fate.

NEVER another dog!!! And, ONLY because of his children developing respect, connection, and love SHOULD the risk and privilege of an animal companion be given to the Vick family. EVEN THEN, someone should be given the responsibility to supervise the situation to make sure the animal companion is well cared for, INCLUDING vet check-ups on a set schedule.

Heck NO, not after all the dogs he murdered!!!!!! He is a very sick person. Anyone who does what he did to animals is not normal and should no way have dogs, kids or any animal. He is a monister.
