Michael Vick has a dog. The word leaked out on accident when he tweeted a picture of himself and his daughter sitting at a table with an open box of Milkbone treats.
PHILADELPHIA, PA (Catholic Online) - Michael Vick was formerly convicted of owning and operating a dog fighting ring, a conviction which landed him in prison and nearly cost him his career.
However, since ending his probation, Vick has worked to improve himself and separate himself from his past. A new family pet may be just the thing.
Vick is being watched by those around him and no doubt the family pet is beloved by his family, and even Vick himself. Hopefully this will warm him to the loving devotion of dogs and he will never again think of fighting them for sport.
