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."

His family can have a dog. Whatever dark place he was in, or let himself be influenced by, I'm sure he's past it and regrets the hurt and pain he caused. He paid his time, I think he's changed, let he and his family enjoy pets the way they're supposed to.

I absolutely can't believe that I'm saying this, but I do agree with his reasoning. I don't think he should be allowed to have any pets or his Million dollar career, but all kids can benefit from a family pet. I'm going to puke now.
