In an interview with NBC News and on Tuesday, Michael Vick said that he would like to get a pet dog.

Hello? Is this thing on?

From theGrio:

“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.”

The entire interview will be presented on The Grio later today. I’m going to reserve judgment on this until I see it. Although at this minute I hear that PETA is scrambling its squadron of fighter jets, and all leave has been canceled.

UPDATE: Here’s the interview.
