So, it Seems Michael Vick Has a Dog

Kyle Scott —  October 5, 2012 — 61 Comments

 

Back in July, it was a bit of a story when Michael Vick, while on a book tour for his autobiography, Finally Free, told Piers Morgan that he wanted to get a dog, for his kids. He said that the terms of his parole which prevented him from doing so were up.

As you might imagine, those stated intentions quickly made their way through a lightning fast news cycle, but have since been mostly forgotten.

Perhaps until now.

On Thursday night, Vick tweeted a picture (with the caption “we workin”) of himself studying film and his daughter seemingly doing homework. Vick smartly blurred out what was on his iPad, but he forgot to edit one aspect of the photo: the open box of Milk-Bones on the right side of the picture, next to his daughter’s dog folder. Hither:

 

Vick later deleted the Tweet… and then reposted it, only this time with the dog treats cropped out. Because it was a completely different picture (look at Vick’s screen). Hither:

 

Gah! Not that big of a deal– Vick is now allowed to own a dog. But I’m guessing that if in fact those Milk-Bones belong to a dog Vick owns – and judging by the fact that the box is open, I’d say they do – it won’t sit well with some people, and Vick probably would’ve liked to make it public in a slightly different manner. Say, by not accidentally tweeting a picture of Milk-Bones and being forced to recreate his kitchen table scene like it was part of a bad docudrama. Just a hunch.

H/T to our own Adam Reigner, a producer and host at WIP as well, for catching and saving the original photo.

    boy you guys must be slow on stuff to write about over there

  2. If people aren’t over that by now… whatever. But more importantly, what the hell is that vest thing he’s wearing?

  3. doesnt that look like a dog on the couch in the top right of the original picture?

  4. Interesting that his daughter’s folder has two chocolate lab puppies on it.

  5. I wanna talk about the Phillies. I think what the Phillies need is right handed batters that can hit left handed pitching. Not only should they hit left handed pitching, they should hit left handed pitching for power, because we have left handed batters like Utley, Howard, Brown, Rollins, Galvis, etc that can’t hit left handed pitching, so I think we need right handed batters that can hit left handed pitching for power, we have none of those guys and Ruf is not the answer.

  6. Very good, I would like to learn from you and continue to work hard.

  7. Vicks Ipad screen was blurred out just like all the laptop screens in the White House photo inside the communication center when they killed Bin Laden.
    Information is a weapon.
    Nice work Kyle.

    think maybe the Eagles PR machine is workin hard to portray Vick in a family light ?

  9. i can promise you that the Eagles PR machine wanted to avoid him talking about getting a dog.

  10. Vick could take the Eagles to the Super Bowl and people would still say ” I hope he breaks his fucking neck”
    letting go of the past is a hard lesson for alot of people
    A celebrity’s image is a fragile construct.
    one wrong comment, picture, tweet, email, video etc and you’re yesterdays news.
    friend of mine used to say ” You could be the worlds best architect and build a thousand bridges; but you suck one cock and you’ll always be the cocksucker”

    who cares about dogs.. what about fish??…. his daughter looks like she is high

  12. My aunt used to eat milk bones, maybe its an after school snack for his daughter..

  13. ps- anyone notice the bird cage in the background? Maybe he’s moved on to parakeet fighting.

  14. whats everybody doing up so early ?

  15. But Michael…what about the dogs?

  16. Oh great, I bet vick is fucking that dog

  17. that vest thing??? a backpack?

  18. H.J. Stinklestein October 5, 2012 at 8:47 am

    Yea…who sits at their kitchen table and continues to wear a back pack? unless its one of those camel pack thingys, and he’s just sucking malt liquor out of it so his kids dont see him gettin his drank on.
    Then again, the better question is: Is his daughter doing homework, or helping him read defenses?

  19. You know he’s drinking purple drank & looking at porn on his iPad

  20. What’s on those 3×5 index cards ?
    dumbing down defenses, plays etc.
    Remember Randall Cunningham’s unopened playbook vs Dallas ?

  21. Whatever happened to his crazy brother Marcus???

  22. Detective Bunk Moreland October 5, 2012 at 9:02 am

    Shit mike just doing his thang wit da family. Leave that boy alone Kyle

  23. Vick has a god damn farm in his place…milk bones and a bird cage. Wonder where the treadmill is? PETA is loving this.

  24. Disgrace he’s allowed to own any pet!. I hope PETA confiscates that dog

  25. Pat get over it….he did his time more then any other human would get just b/c he is an athlete…it’s a disgrace that he served that much jail time and the same goes for PLEX who shot himself. They were made examples b/c of the STATUS.

  26. How can PETA confiscate something?

  27. Shiva H. Vishnu October 5, 2012 at 9:35 am

    Man, it’s going to be a long October.

  28. This is a disgrace. Imagine if I got a job after I get out of prison, and then wanted to diddle kiddies again. You’d all be crazed.

  29. Sandusky, Rick Santorum sez thanks alot for making him drop out of the GOP race…..

  30. @ Pat Mullen- PETA cannot confiscate something, you fucking idiot. Get off your high horse loser

  31. Steve @ Best Buy October 5, 2012 at 9:47 am

    Kyle, keep out of other bizz. Do you sleep good at night knowing you a re a ghetto version of paparazzi? Good day sir

  32. As long as his committed to keeping it and caring for itin a responsible manner and not “trying it out for the weekend” like some other dick we know.
    Good to see a dog get a home.

  33. Is Vick wearing his Kevlar vest full-time now?

  35. The whole “Let him do his thing with his family” argument isn’t very strong considering that he took a picture of himself and put it on the internet. In this instance he could have had privacy if he didn’t want to be a fucking idiot. I absolutely despise Michael Vick for his atrocities but I am also under the opinion that he needed to play in the NFL again because the US prison system tells criminals everyday that if they do their time and stay out of trouble that they can rejoin the workforce that they left. That said, Vick got wayyy overpaid and he isn’t producing, so he gets no slack for his shitty play. Even if he didn’t throw his family dog into a pit with trained fighting dogs to watch it get ripped to shreds, if any other player came to Philly, signed a contract like that, and then fell off the face of the earth the way Vick has since signing his contract (I think the stat is somewhere close to 24 TD’s – 20 INTS and 16 Fumbles) then people would be all over their ass just like Kyle is with Bryzgalov. Vick shouldn’t have a dog and he’s probably going to do old school aversion training, he might even beat the shit out of it, but I suppose if it’s legal than there’s nothing to be done about it.

  36. Kyle is a hack. Ruff ruff, ruff ruff ruff ruff. Kyle is a hack. Ruff ruff, ruff ruff ruff ruff.

  37. The dog is for his kids. The Justice System in this country has and always will be flawed.
    Lawyers write the laws and wait for the lawsuits.
    Then they become Judges.
    Atheletes are ENTERTAINMENT for the masses.
    Ray Lewis never stabbed a dog. where’s he at today ?

  38. The folks at TMZ have gotten their hands on legal documents related to Michael Vick’s bankruptcy case, which is great news for those of you who closely follow the details of Vick’s financial situation.
    According to TMZ, Vick has banked $31 million since he filed for bankruptcy in 2008, and has spent nearly all of that. Don’t get too excited ‒ it’s not like he blew all the money on Bentleys or mansions or building a llama fighting pit in his backyard. Most of the money went to boring stuff. Quoth TMZ:
    The math is pretty simple — Vick had to pay a total of $29.6 mil — of that, $10.9 went to taxes, $9.2 mil went to creditors, $2.7 went to lawyers and accountants, and the rest is for various things, including child support and living expenses.
    All of which leaves Vick with about $1.5 million currently, which isn’t bad for a guy who’s bankrupt. And, as TMZ points out, things will turn up for Vick. In 2011, he signed a contract with the Eagles that guaranteed him $35.5 million.
    He can make substantially more than that if he stays with the Eagles past this year, but there’s no guarantee that will happen. He didn’t have a great year in 2011, and his 2012 isn’t off to a great start, either. At his salary, no one would blame the Eagles if they wanted to let him go, unless he quickly regains his form from 2010. His Sunday night performance against the Giants was a good start, but that’s got to happen with more consistency.
    But again, $35.5 million is guaranteed to be coming his way, no matter how poorly he plays. If you’ve been saving your pennies in a jar and sending them to Michael Vick, you can stop now.

  39. yea Bernie. Look at how many commercials and video games Ray Lewis is in. Hes loved and respected by the masses because he loves an imaginary man in the sky and praises him, and he also hits the shit outta offensive players.
    He was with people who killed a guy.
    I dislike Vick because he’s a terrible QB who was always overrated because he COULD outrun any defender and has an incredibly accurate deep ball(ha). He can’t read a defense, he was ignorant in his early adulthood, he’s overpaid, he can’t read a defense, he holds the ball too long, he can’t read a defense and he can NOT READ A DEFENSE.
    But I agree he DID serve his time. His children deserve a dog, he doesn’t. He wont be stupid about that side of his life, I believe that.
    And while Kyle is a dick and bores me with his end of days shit, Bryzgalov DOES suck and IS overpaid as well and I hate it because I WANT to like him and his strange personality(Bryz, not Kyle).
    Oh, and Steve @best buy…Wouldn’t you sleep good at night if all you did was Blog about Philly sports? Kyle is hardly affecting the life of Vick. I mean, what better life is there? Wake up at 8:45a and put a small post to get the crowd at half mast, then blow half the day away until someone emails him about something interesting. I like crossingbroad, and if I felt like taking more time to do it, I’d blog witty banter about philly sports and social life. ‘murica!

  40. wow AI TRU, you can copy and past from ABC news.

  41. wow Dick Hardly…..I was involved in getting this published, too….
    “On June 5, 2005, WMR followed-up its story of Israeli spying at NSA: “Veterans of the RCA-NSA-Israeli joint SIGINT program code named DINDI report that Israeli engineer spies used the carve out contract with NSA, through RCA, to gain access to NSA and U.S. Navy secrets. In an RCA facility in Mount Laurel, NJ, the Israeli engineers had their own secured lab, and for three years that DINDI ran, they were walking out with their briefcases loaded with equipment, including scopes. When RCA engineers finally gained access to their lab, they found the prints laid out for the Trident missile system. RCA had an ongoing contract top develop the Trident communications suite at the time of the security leak. The Israeli engineers on DINDI claimed they were from the Israeli Air Force but months later, an RCA engineer was in New York and he ran into the same Israelis, but they were wearing Israeli Navy uniforms. One ex-RCA engineer commented about the DINDI Israeli spies: ‘They were all a nice bunch of guys, even when they had their hands in your pockets.’ One RCA contractor for NSA later told WMR that the RCA program manager for DINDI, a Jewish engineer who he only named as “Irv,” permitted the Israelis to rummage through NSA and RCA classified information.’

  42. @ Bored@Werk: McNabb fixated on his primary receiver and often missed open targets.My source told me that after the NFC Eagles Tampa game, that Childress REPEATEDLY told Reid ” I can’t believe he missed the open guy”
    Q. Coach Parcells, you’ve had success in taking teams to the playoffs and Super Bowls, how do you accomplish this ?”
    Parcells: “I get rid of all the stupid guys”

  43. I don’t give a flying fuck if he has a dog. You know what pleases the FACE in that first picture? Motherfucker is watching game film. You can make out through the blur that he is studying. Fuckin’ right Starship 7. LET’S GO!

  44. Who gives a shit. Ben Rape-lesberger can still be around women, Dante Stallworth can still drive a car, and Ray Lewis can still obstruct justice, amirite?

  45. Gone is correct. The wheels of justice turn s-l-o-w.
    Karma is the great equalizer.

  46. Look what the prison system did for this guy.

  47. SO WHAT!!! SO MANY OF U IF NOT ALL OF US HAVE SKELETONS IN OUR CLOSETS. HOW MANY WILL COME ON HERE & ADMIT THEIR WRONGS! PLEASE!!! There are so many of these “CENTURY OLD” dog fights that continue to go on now & when there are any “raids” we never see any of these so-called Humane Societies there. Hell-many of these so-called societies cover up many of these things concerning friends/themselves! After the Vick bullcrap people were getting arrested for a short period of time to make it look good but still I never seen nor heard of these societies involved. Give it a break! Why don’t they go where they know these events are taking place! Race & $$$-a lethal combo!

  48. As long as his committed to keeping it and caring for itin a responsible manner and not “trying it out for the weekend” like some other dick we know.
    Good to see a dog get a home.

    Right??? I remember when Kyle posted that in article a few weeks back, and I was all like, “what kind of douchenozzle ‘tries out’ a dog?”. You da man, Kyle.

  49. Chance- Vice President in Command of the GnA Falcons October 5, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    It’s only a dog, who cares if he owns 1

  50. To “Chance- Vice President in Command of the GnA Falcons” When he blows the next game, we’ll be sure to remind you “its only a game”. Not a living breathing creature with feelings that he has already brutally killed several of.

  51. Man, there are some idiots on this page fo realz. First a backpack that’s a vest (which I can understand more than the latter) & PETA apparently can confiscate dogs now lmfaooo.
    And to respond to the article, it’s a fucking crime to own a dog? Yeah it may be a little weird, & some people here have the right mindsets to think that Vick might be buying dogs for the wrong reasons again, but jesus. The man did his time, served a hefty sentence for what he was found guilty for, leave it alone, unless he brings it upon himself, mind your own business.

  52. 53 comments about a guy nobody cares about. McNabb was the Chunky Soup throwin up in the huddle guy gettin booed on Draft day.
    Same as it ever was.

  53. This lowlife scumbag should NEVER be allowed to own a dog again. (He should actually be removed from the planet—we don’t need pieces-of-shit like him on this planet.)
    And Idiot | October 05, 2012 at 12:36 AM, get over it???? You are more than an idiot, you are a heartless scumbag piece-of-shit. Real human people will NEVER get over it. I think we should torture and kill your kids (or your parents—I can’t imagine anyone reproducing with you) and then tell you to get over it. What a fucking brain-dead scumbag. You deserve to be removed from the planet along with scumbag Sick Vick.

  54. Aren’t dog owners supposed to be fun loving mentally balanced individuals ?
    what’s all this
    ” I think we should torture and kill your kids”
    I think hatred should be removed from this planet.

  55. God forgives the devil does not October 6, 2012 at 9:56 pm

    You rednecks need to just shut up and get a life. You used dogs to tear the skin off humans and attack them. Were you mentally balanced and fun loving, You sicko that keep commenting on here are just mad because he has turned his life around you are still in a trailer miserable and hateful.

  56. Michael Vick’s history with dogfighting should make him ineligible to ever own any animal. That isn’t hatred speaking. It’s plain common sense.
    He may have served his time and if a football team is desperate enough to hire him he should be allowed to play. But there is no evidence that his attitude toward animals, and dogs in particular, has changed one iota. Dogfighting, like other addictions, is a lifelong compulsion. This leopard will not change its spots.
    If Michael Vick’s children have to grow up without a dog it’s a small price to pay for the peace of mind of knowing he will not ever be killing another dog.

  57. it means the human race has failed , he should be rotting in jail not making millions . people that dont care or want to forget what he did ? the animals that suffered and died wont forget , they need a voice so the caring humans will keep that voice for them. .

  58. Every level of society that hid what he was doing for SIX years should be brought to their knees.
    I pray that VICK gets his neck broken and becomes a quadriplegic in unbelievable pain the rest of his life-
    I hope the Eagles never win another game and go down the tubes as a washed up has been of a team because of the evil they associate with.
    I pray the HSUS and whoever allowed VICK a dog are bankrupted.
    And I will be filled with joy when that thing that endorsed VICK and who is the President who has lied and murdered innocent people is out of office.

  59. Pretty much everyone knowingly causes animals to suffer horrible deaths. The only difference is is that it’s not illegal to torture and kill pigs, chickens, rats, opossums and other animals, but it is dogs because they’re “cute.”
    I don’t think what he did was good, but I can’t condemn him forever since I’ve knowingly caused animals to die horrible deaths. When I buy eggs from the store, I’m making a concious choice to support chickens being crammed in cages too small to move around in, covered in their owne feces. Not only that, male egg-laying chicks are useless to egg producers, so during the sorting of male/female chicks, they are disposed of by being tossed, alive, into grinders like garbage.
    Is that any better than what Vick did? I can’t lie to myself so I can pretend to be “better” than him.
    I want to get some laying hens next spring. Should I not be allowed to own any since the way I contributed to chickens being treated in the past? I’m not going to cram my chickens in small cages, just like I highly doubt Vick is going to kill his new dog.

  60. egg-laying breeds* obviously male birds don’t lay eggs. :p

  61. If he truly does have another dog I want to know when this country will finally wake up and get rid of a judicial system that has been the best that money can buy for decades.
