Michael Vick Has A Dog – Is That OK?
I’m sure you remember the fallout after former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick was busted for animal cruelty back in 2008. People called for the most serious penalties allowed to be levied on him, and the star QB ended up losing his job, house, savings and freedom.
Well, after all that Vick went thru, he’s made a lot of progress. He’s got a new QB job, new crib, and has paid his debt to society. He also has a cute little daughter, which is where this drama story started. Last Thursday, Mike tweeted a photo of himself sitting at the table with his daughter. The photo was cute, standard issue father/daughter. The issue is that in the background, there’s a box of Milk Bone dog treats. Obviously the insinuation here is that Mike and his family have a pet dog now, which has the internet goin’ nuts. BTW, he immediately removed the pic and posted and identical one, minus the doggie treats.
Now legally, Mike is in the clear. His three year ban on owning a dog expired last year. Personally, I think that he’s served his time and done a great job at becoming a “productive member of society.” I don’t have any problem with him having a family dog, but I gotta ask: Do you?
