Default Vick tells reporters he wants a dog again

This is all everyones been talking about here

Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, convicted on dog fighting charges, says he'd 'love' to have a dog
National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell may want to look over Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick's Christmas list.

"I would love to have another dog," Vick said at his locker on Wednesday. "My entire life I grew up with a pet in my house. The last few years were the first that I haven't had one. My daughter is used to it, my son is used to it. It's just different. I feel bad for them and the entire situation, what I did. It could be part of my rehabilitation process showing people I do care about animals sincerely and genuinely."

Vick, enjoying an explosive season with the Eagles, was convicted on federal dog fighting charges in 2007 for illegally breeding, torturing and killing dogs, and served 19 months at the federal penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kan. A condition of his release is that he never again own a dog under his name.

"I could take care of an animal in my household, if they want to monitor me doing it then they can," said Vick, who noted he had dogs ranging from a beagle to a mix breed growing up in Virginia.

Since being released, Vick has made appearances on behalf of the Humane Society as well as addressing students of the lessons he's learned.

"Whatever animal I'd have would live a happy life," Vick said. "I know that."
