Philadelphia  Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has confirmed he is indeed a dog owner again, now i know animal rights groups are gonna be  protesting the right for Vick to own a dog again after spending time in prison for running an illegal dogfighting ring "i understand the strong emotions of some people about my family's decision to care for a pet" Vick said in a statement released Thursday." 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. Now it seems  Michael is doing and saying all the rights things and he has paid his price to society and fulfilled the terms of his probation agreement, so it is well within his rights to own a dog, so let's not jump to judgement on this and I for one think that Michael has learned from his ordeal  and hopes to  make a positive change and be an outstanding role model for dog ownership.
