    He didn't make a MISTAKE. He exhibited a pattern of behavior. He can contribute as much as he wants to society. That doesn't mean he needs another dog.

    I exhibited a pattern of behavior too, when I was taking drugs, and it was pattern that is a lot more insidious than dog fighting. I broke my pattern. Vick deserves to show the world that he has broken his too.

    I'm sure the dogs would disagree with you. Your pattern was due to physical and mental dependency. You can learn not to be dependent on something. Vick's pattern was due to a lack of empathy. You can't learn that, no one can teach it to you. If you didn't break your pattern...well, all you hurt is yourself. If Vick doesn't, he gets to add another notch to the dozens he already has.

    And Vick doesn't deserve ****. Oh poor wealthy football player! Can't have a dog now when it's obvious he cares so, so deeply about them....whatever will he do?!!?

    All I know is that a responsible rescue or breeder wouldn't even think about letting him adopt a dog.

    Yeah, he can't have mine. Even the one that pees everywhere.

    I agree that Vick deserves a second chance....that isn't this issue....and I'm happy that society gave you a second chance, you deserved it and did well with it.
    That said....just like you have lived your life without drugs....Vick needs to live his life without his addiction to dogs.

    Perhaps it something more than that.
    Just take a look at the 4 letters of the word analogy.
    Some just may not be all that comfortable with that subconscious thought.....

    Because they don't seem to get what an analogy is.
