Say What? Michael Vick Wants Another Dog

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, who spent 21 months in prison following his 2007 conviction for his role in a dog-fighting ring, wants another dog. That revelation — about as likely as Bernie Madoff launching an investment firm — came in a conversation Vick had with NBC News’ Mara Schiavocampo for TheGrio.com, msnbc.com‘s recently launched African American-targeted Web site. Vick told Schiavocampo:

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; I think it would be outstanding. If I ever have the opportunity again, I will never take it for granted. I miss having a dog right now. I wish I could. My daughters miss having one, and that’s the hardest thing; telling them that we can’t have one because of my actions.
