Found October 12, 2012 on 60 Max Power O:
After saying he wouldn’t address the questions about him owning a dog, Vick changed his mind and released this statement.

“I understand the strong emotions by some people about our family’s decision to care for a pet. As a father, it is important to make sure my children develop a healthy relationship with animals.”

“I want to ensure that my children establish a loving bond and treat all of God’s creatures with kindness and respect. Our pet is well cared for and loved as a member of our family.”

“This is an opportunity to break the cycle. To that end, I will continue to honor my commitment to animal welfare and be an instrument of positive change.”


Will people please let this man live.

He has done his time, he doesn’t have to keep apologizing. You can read my thoughts on Vick owning a dog here.
