The Philadelphia Eagles quarterback served 21 months in prison prior to returning to the NFL in 2010, eventually becoming the Eagles’ $100 Million dollar man and being named Comeback Player of the Year.
According to the terms of Vick’s probation, he was not allowed to own a dog. His three-year probation sentence ended last July, and now he is free to own an animal if he so chooses.
Well… it appears that Vick’s already added a pooch to the family and here’s photographic proof…
Dad was tinkering around on his iPad…? daughter appears to be working diligently… And clearly visible on the right side of the table is a box of MilkBone dog biscuits.
It’s not hard to connect the dots from there.
Vick (or his people) quickly deleted the photo, which was replaced by a 2nd similar shot minus the dog biscuits…
While it’s not illegal for him to own a pet, clearly Vick has enough sense to realize that his dog ownership should probably be kept under wraps at the moment.
Vick’s dog ownership has been debated on news shows nationwide and it seems that he will NEVER be able to leave the stains of his dog fighting past behind.
The man served his time… breezed through probation without a hitch… and has managed to resurrect his NFL career, and yet there are still many who choose to tie him to his past.
I’m all for Vick owning a dog… and I’m a die hard pet owner. Those of you who think he shouldn’t, are you as firm in your commitment to human rights as you are to the “rights” of animals?
Is there really anything WRONG with Vick owning a dog at this time?
