Michael Vick's Dog Desires: In His Dreams
Posted: Thursday, December 16, 2010

What has two thumbs and wants a new dog after being sent to prison for animal abuse? This guy. NFL star Michael Vick isn't going to gain any new fans with a recent interview where he expressed an interest in getting a new four-legged friend. The shamed Philadelphia Eagles quarterback served time in a federal prison after he was found guilty of operating a dogfighting ring. When Vick and his partners deemed dogs unfit to fight, they would hang, drown, electrocute and bludgeon the dogs to death. Now that the NFL player has made a career comeback, he obviously thinks that it's a case of forgiving and forgetting. Vick told a reporter that he has a serious case of puppy love. Says Vick, "I would love to have another dog in the future. I think it would be a big step for me in the rehabilitation process." Giving Vick a dog is like allowing John Wayne Gacy to babysit your son. Luckily for all creatures great and small, Vick is not allowed to be man's best friend by law. Vick blames his transgressions on how he was raised. He explains, "When I was younger I got caught up in dog fighting...It was something to do. I hate to use our culture as an excuse. It is what it is. I love animals. I love dogs. I love birds. I love all types of animals." Ruff luck, Vick.
