Michael Vick releases a statement, says he owns a dog

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has been mum on whether or not he owns a dog.  He’s now come out and released a statement admitting that he owns one.

“I understand the strong emotions by some people about our family’s decision to care for a pet. As a father, it is important to make sure my children develop a healthy relationship with animals.”

“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.”

I personally have no problem with Vick owning a dog.  He did his time and I believe he’s learned his lesson.
