We all remember what happened the last time Michael Vick had a dog... but alas, he has a pooch to call his own again.
The Philadelphia Eagles quarterback took to Twitter to post a photo of his daughter next to an open box of dog food (see above). Fully prepared for the speculation, Vick issued a statement through his PR firm
"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."
The NFL star served fed time for running an illegal dogfighting ring and ended his probation this past summer.
