Thumbs down Michael Vick got a dog. Endorsed by HSU$.

This makes me sick.

This article pretty much sums up my thoughts on it. He should never have any pet again. Gross.

Thumbs down


Wh-Wh-why? I can only imagine what could happen to that poor dog in that man's hands. Why is he allowed in the NFL, let alone allowed to have another animal in his house? He doesn't even deserve a pet-freaking-rock.

Well, the NFL has never been shy about letting convicts back in the league.

And that dog may be the safest dog on the planet. All eyes are going to be on it and Vick. If he even jerks a leash or comes near it with a rolled up newspaper, it will be all over the nightly news.

I hope so. But the trouble is...no one will know what goes on behind closed doors.

To me that's like saying Sandusky should get another chance working with young boys, because they'll be really safe with all the scrutiny that would be on him. Just because someone is a celebrity doesn't mean they wear a security camera on them 24/7. And working with vulnerable demographics is a right that should be revoked when certain crimes against them are committed the same way felons lose their right to vote and bear arms.

No, the safest dog on planet lives with someone who never has tortured a dog to death, let alone many.

I have a really hard time not rolling my eyes at this. Apparently this wasn't important before... and obviously not important for yourself to treat them with kindness and respect...

Exactly. It makes me sick just thinking about it.
