Just days after bagging a wife in his over-the-top wedding at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach, Philadelphia Eagles star Michael Vick says he also wants to buy a couple dogs!
“Now that I can, I would like to have my own dogs,” the quarterback told CNN host Piers Morgan. “I have learned my lesson and want people to see my good side.”
It’s for his kids, Vick claims.
“I don’t want to take that dream (of dog ownership) away from them,” he said. “That’s selfish!”
The lesson came in 2007, when Vick was convicted of running an illegal dog-fighting ring in which pit bulls fought to the death. Weaker dogs were hung, drowned or simply shot on his property near Atlanta.
Vick served 19 months in prison in connection with the cruelty and was banned from owning pooches for three years.
The ban is coming to an end next month.
So, why would anyone entrust a pet to Vick?
“Because I legally can,” Vick says.
So, South Florida, what do you think?
