In case you don't know about him - he's the quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles. (This is Eagles country around here) He went to jail for having a dog fighting ring and raising dogs to fight. Now he's boo hooing because his kids want a dog and he isn't allowed to get them one.

Do you think he should be allowed to own a dog?

This is one of those areas that I have mixed emotions. What he did was horrible, it's not something I can wrap my head around where people find it "fun" and acceptable.

However, he has done his time. The ASPCA and other animal groups feel he is rehabilitated and he has been working on their behalf. Is he sincere? I don't know, I think he now has a good enough fear in him that him ever doing something like this again is minimal.

i feel bad that his kids have to be punished for his actions, but I don't know if he should be allowed to have any more dogs for a while. Maybe an animal group will step up and maybe sponsor his family so they can. Kinda like doggy CPS, with home checks.

I'm in Eagles country too. His house is 15 or so minutes from where I live.

I don't think he should be allowed to have a dog.

He can't have a dog. There are worse things in life. The kids will get over it. They can get one when they grow up.

Vick should never be allowed to own anything that lives. He's prolly kill it for money. Those ASPCA things, he doesn't actually speak against killing dogs, he says he's wrong because he got caught. I don't talk about this allot, my hubby posts about it all the time on facebook. I used to live in Eagles country and my hubby used to be a huge Eagles fan, but he can't even listen to the sports radio from down there. We moved to Maine a long time ago, happily we can teach James to be a Patriots fan and it will be routing for the hometown team.
