A few days ago Michael Vick caught a ton of flack after posting a family photo that indicated he had gotten a family dog.
As you know, Vick served a federal sentence on charges stemming from dog fighting but he’s said in the past that once his probation was up he’d probably get a dog.
Well, he’s confirmed that he did… and so what?! It’s a free country… right?
Anywhoo…. you already know the “Vick haters” were quick to protest, so now Michael has been forced to issue an “official” statement confirming that he now owns a dog and explaining his decision to do so. *sigh*
Here’s what Vick wants y’all to know about his new pet below…
“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.”
“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.” (source)
In my opinion Vick said wayyyy too much. If I were him, my statement woulda read as follows:
My dog’s name is Fluffy… here’s a picture. And what?
What are your thoughts about Michael confirming his pet ownership?
