Step one: Speak with children. Step two: Align yourself with a charity. Step three: Never ask to have one of those things you were convicted of strangling, drowning and electrocuting. Oh wait....
Vick recently was asked the inevitable question by TheGrio.com as to whether or not he would ever like to have a dog again. His response?
"I would love to get another dog in the future. I think it would be a big step for me in the rehabilitation process. I think just to have a pet in my household and to show people that I genuinely care, and my love, and my passion for animals."
Yes, Michael, it would be a big step in the rehabilitation process in the same way that running a Swedish Catholic Middle School for Girls would be a big step for Roman Polanski.
A court order actually prevents Vick from buying, owning or selling dogs during his three-year probation. Goldfish? Straight cash, homie.
The interview does raise the question whether or not Vick should ever be allowed to own a dog. The Humane Society certainly thinks so, and that seems to be about as good of an endorsement as No. 7 could get. Much better than say a small Nissan dealership just outside of Philadelphia.
Vick paid for his crimes with time served and the loss of untold millions of dollars. Even his commercial for Woodbury Nissan was done without pay. Sure, he gets use of a $54,000 Armada, but that’s not the same.
Does that afford him the right to adopt a half-blind beagle in two years who pees every time he hears a vacuum cleaner? Not necessarily, but at some point Michael Vick should be allowed to have a dog. And at some point, Michael Vick will have a dog.
So keep your torches and pitchforks ready.
