Michael Vick

Bernie puts down his coffee mug, gazes at the paper. That coffee mug is really important to him. He always drinks from the same one. It’s chipped in a few places, but I think someone gave it to him long ago. Usually Bernie gets into a pretty good mood when he’s drinking that first mug, but not today.

“Here’s a real dilemma,” he says. “Michael Vick, who’s paid his debt to society and seems contrite, says he’d like to have a dog some day.” Bernie sighs. “What do we think of that?”

I only have a faint memory of this dude, but I get a bad feeling inside.

“I wonder what the people at the blog think,” Bernie says.

    First I had to find out who Michael Vick is. He’s a creep. I doubt that there is any way he can be prevented from owning a dog but I hope he never does.

    Good Morning Mollypop.

    Hi OleyHowlers. What breed are you?

    Good Morning B and Oleyhowlers.

    Welcome Oley, you are a good looking dog, kind of wolfish in the little avatar. Do you have a bigger picture?

    Michael Vick has a black heart, not fixable. He should never ever be left alone with any animal. He’s saying this to try to change his public image. No way!

    If a foster parent had been convicted of child abuse, would s/he ever be allowed to foster a child again? We are all foster parents to our dogs.

    He may have paid a debt to human society, but I think he owes the nation within a nation a lot more – I’m not sure it can be repaid.

    10:40 am on December 16th, 2010

    I don’t believe that Michael Vick is sorry about what he did. He is only sorry that he got caught. NO NO NO NO NO DOG

    Oleyhowlers, Hey and Hi! That is a cool name. Could you be a red Siberian? (small avatars)

    CHarris, I totally enjoy reading your posts about life above the Arctic Circle.

    BBL sigh

  12. B.Stover
    10:43 am on December 16th, 2010

    CHarris makes a good point. However, I still don’t think there is any legal way to keep him from acquiring more animals. Any lawyers out here?

  13. B.Stover
    10:49 am on December 16th, 2010

    Hi Michale Murphy.

    I’m thinking of the act of shunning as a means of punishing/controlling Vick. I suppose that only works within a closed community.

    He should start with plants and a fish, and if they are healthy in a year move up to a guineau pig.

  15. Abbiethekitty
    11:00 am on December 16th, 2010

    Forget about it. The man has no right to own a pet. I wouldn’t like to see him with any animal. Even a fish.

    Well, Maybe a mousie.

    The judge said Michael Vick was banned for life from having a dog. Now the judge is changing his ‘alleged’ mind.

    11:28 am on December 16th, 2010

    Heh, Rio,
    I just got caught up with yesterday’s blog. I see you wanted some kats for a bank robbery. I think before you plan this robbery you ought to read Bank Shot by Donald Westlake.

    I suppose I could stun them with my eyes if that would help.

    However I think it would be more legal to just have a blogathon and ask for money from the masses. Everyone could donate and I am sure they would get a credit on their income taxes. Yeh, that’s the ticket!

    One spring when we came back to North Dakota after our lovely winter in tropical Minneapolis I saw aluminum pie tins with charcoal in them under all the propane tanks.
    I was wondering why people had been barbecuing their propane. Seemed a little dangerous to me. Well that was the winter it got to -47 degrees and people were trying to keep their propane running during the cold snap.
    Do people up there cook their propane tanks?

    Hi everyone and welcome to all the newbies. If not never, then it has to be a very, very, long, long time before it should even be even considered.

    Sorry about not posting yesterday, but it was a busy day. We did, howver, get some yummy-licious toffee in the mail yesterday from Wolfie’s mom, with a very nice card, which was even addressed in part to me (although dad still said no toffee for me). That you so much Wolfie’s mom, on behalf of my mom and dad, for that incredibly thoughtful gift.

    Mom had a busy morning this morning, trying to get stuff done before the snow arrives (it is snowing now, but we will probably only get 1 to 2 inches here). She and my “Aunt” Lisa delivered over two-hundred pounds of groceries and over $100 in cash contributions to the local food bank, which were collected from all the quilting ladies when they came to the Christmas party at our house last week. She also delivered some
    “premie” quilts (quilts for premature babies) to a local childrens hospital that the quilt guild members had made as well.

    Looking forward to frolicking in the snow this afternoon. Still working my way through Rio’s magnum opus collection of the Astrid saga, but it is very interesting and very helpful to have it altogether in one place.

    Sayonara for now. Wookie

  23. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    11:34 am on December 16th, 2010

    11:45 am on December 16th, 2010

    OK, let’s make it unanimous. NO NO NO!!! Michael Vick is a creep, a jerk and an asshole (can I say that here?)

    He says his kids would love a dog and it would help with his rehab. He is just trying to make himself look more human/humane, and he is neither. He is not sorry, and has no compassion for the dogs he abused. Nuff said.

    11:51 am on December 16th, 2010

    Welcome newbie!

    Wolfie, Tell Mary that Barb is loving the toffee. She is rationing it, and hid it in the frig this morning, so she can save some for her daughter.

  27. Tyb
    12:09 pm on December 16th, 2010

    I’m with the rest of you. Michael Vick shouldn’t be allowed to have even a stuffed toy
    dog. I think the idea of another dog is his, and I’ve read nothing about the judge reconsidering his banning Vick from EVER having another dog. I think it might be a better idea to give Michael Vick to the dogs. Hungry dogs that is.

    I saw this morning on TV about Michael Vick wanting a dog. I don’t think so. I don’t think being in jail for a year and not being first-string on a professional football team makes up for what he did.
    And I hope everyone here’s okay with huskies. Is it just that there are a lot of them here.?

    12:17 pm on December 16th, 2010

    Typing too fast here. That should be Welcome Newbies, and fridge, not frig (must have still been thinking of Michael Vick).

    12:18 pm on December 16th, 2010

    No, no, never, nope.

    Both spare bedrooms are cleaned out and vacuumed. Me? I kinda get going when the vaccuum gets going. I like to nip at the light, run up really fast on it, then run away really fast.

    Mom says her check engine light is on in the car. Toyota dealership says it is $105 just to put the scanner on the car to get a code to diagnose the trouble. Mom is going over to the local auto parts store to see if their free scanner will fit on her car. Apparently, car code scanners start at 1996 and newer. Mom’s Camry is a 1995. The auto parts store says sometimes the scanner will fit some 95s. It all depends on the size of the pipidinkus. (HEH!)

    Mom’s car runs good, looks good, and is paid for. She’s a bit wound up about this. Kinda like me and the vacuum.

    12:27 pm on December 16th, 2010

    Jasper: I have a 1990 Saturn (also paid for) that occasionally has the “check engine” light come on. It has always done this. A few years ago I spent over eight hours and $800 to have the dealership fix it. It came back on two weeks later.

  34. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:30 pm on December 16th, 2010

    Stover!… My friend drives a Subaru too and her Check Engine light is on all the time….grunt!…She paid to have a test done to find out what was wrong and turns out nothing is wrong….snort! …..So when something really does go wrong she won’t know it….wheeze!

  35. Sam
    12:42 pm on December 16th, 2010

    Mom had the check engine light on and they said it had to do with the gas cap. It couldn’t be fixed so she just lived with it, but what if another problem came up, a real problem? How would anyone be able to tell?

  36. Tyb
    12:46 pm on December 16th, 2010

    We drive a Subaru and have put probably 6 or 7 thousand miles on it since the check engine light came on. Once a mechanic told me that the light is amber because it’s not usually a critical problem that causes it to come on. If it were, the light would be red.
    I think that it’s a timed thing that happens to get you into a dealership for a soaking every so often. Generally cars today are so dependable that dealers wouldn’t be doing any repairs if they waited to see people with real problems. The check engine light is put on the dash to scare us into the dealer.

  37. Mollie (a black poodle)
    1:00 pm on December 16th, 2010

    I vote no, I don’t think Michael Vick should ever have a dog after what he did.

    Jasper: Mom has a Toyota Rav4 & the engine light went on. They said it might be that the gas cap was not on tight enough. We tightened it and the light has not come on again. My boy has a Toyota truck & the engine light seems to be on all the time. Every time he takes it in they say some other thing is wrong and he has spent a fortune so far…

  38. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    1:10 pm on December 16th, 2010

    On Volvo’s, the check engine light can come on if the gas tank cover is not completely screwed on tightly after filling up the tank. For some reason this tends to be a problem more so in winter than other seasons and may also be related to temperature (i.e., the seal on the gas tank may not be as tight when the lid is screwed back on in colder weather). Our check engine light comes on and off with great regularity and our dealership actually tells us not to even bother doing anything about it unless it stays on through multiple, multiple fill-ups. Don’t know if Toyota is the same, but it sounds from a lot of other postings on the blog that the check engine light coming on is a frequent occurrence on a lot of brands and is not necessarily a sign of immediate urgency.

    the check engine light is often on in our 1998 Plymouth Voyager van. We also paid about 800 dollars (in the Cities) to get it all tuned up and turned off. Again it worked for several months and then came back. Another mechanic (in North Dakota) told us it was probably a piece of cracked insulation causing a little short and unless we wanted to change every wire in the engine we should live with it.
    That was at around 100,000 miles. It is now at 212,000 miles and it goes on and off whenever it wants.

    If Michael Vick gets a dog then we’ll have to dognap him and find him a really nice home. When we went to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, we met Ellen, who used to be one of Michael Vicks dogs, and she had such a sad look in her eyes still. I can’t bear to think of the horrors those dogs suffered.

    I’m glad that everyone is enjoying their Christmas toffee. Mom let me pick out the cards and I think I did a good job.

    She has been busy, busy, busy in the kitchen. One of her doctors (who has become a friend over the years) is in the hospital on a ventilator. (He had the flu, got dizzy, fell and hit his head on the door jamb and ended up with a spinal cord injury.) At any rate, our town is having a fund raiser Tri Tip dinner for him and mom is helping to make desserts. So far….she has made about 10 lbs of toffee, pecan bars, sugar cookies, chocolate crinkle cookiers, ginger cookies, and pecan sandies. Mom is feeling very selfless since she has been on a Diet and can’t really have much more than a nibble or two.

    Well, I’m glad everyone is enjoying the toffee, especially Sam’s family. I’m stuck here in Ellicottville with Safety Patrol and they’re eating my toffee. They said Yum and they would save me a crumb. They think I’m a nice Miss Poufy Tail, but they forget that I can bite. BIG bites.

    Welcome to all the newcomers even if you aren’t a Husky!

    I don’t know of a Michael Murphy that is an actor, but we have a singer in NM by the same name…remember the song “Wildfire”

    5:45 pm on December 16th, 2010

    Folks, it isn’t Michael Murphy; it’s Michale Murphy.

    A friend sent me that same card Wookie. It’s really great.

    Liz: I forgot to mention that there is a picture of Ned Kelly on the label of the wine bottle. He has a very long fuzzy beard and looks like a scary dude.

    I’ve been crunching on this lucious toffee also.

    Sam: Mollypop is going to start biting.

  59. Riö - The Evil Pug
    5:48 pm on December 16th, 2010

    Stover!… He must have misspelled his name, because Michael Murphy, the actor, is spelt correctly…grunt!

    5:48 pm on December 16th, 2010

    Wolfie, Barb thinks that is really neat that you went to Best Friends. That is one of her favorite places to donate. We have seen one of the Vick dogs on tv with one of the main guys from Best Friends. They are sweet dogs, in spite of what they went through.

    Wookie, we loved your card, but the Parson’s Russell only ate ONE cookie. I would have eaten all of them!

  61. Siber-H
    5:53 pm on December 16th, 2010

    7:04 pm on December 16th, 2010

    Hmmm…strange … now one shows up.

    Anyway thanks for all of the welcomes. We are a pack of 3 Siberian Huskies. We use Meashka’s pic for our icon, since she is the most photogenic…but definitely not the brains of the outfit.

    Our human told us that the NFL and Philly Eagles are putting great effort into scrubbing Vicks image. We don’t know what that means, but we aren’t buying it, whatever it is. Our humans WERE bigtime Eagles fans. Now we don’t watch them anymore, so that means more great Husky Hikes for us on Sunday afternoons!

  68. B.Stover
    7:12 pm on December 16th, 2010

    Wow! Three huskies. I like the name Meashka. I don’t think that Vick’s image can be scrubbed.

    Wow, did Bernie set the blog on fire today. I have to agree with Chet and EVERYONE else here. Vick seems to thing of dogs as property.

    So, “Forgetaboutit!”.

    They are checking through a CAT scan tomorrow to make sure Dan’s meds are working. They are talking of sending him to rehab the beginning of next week!

    Might have to have Christmas a little later this year.

    8:13 pm on December 16th, 2010

    We have to agree with the entire blog…no to Vick getting a pet of any kind. He was so cruel to dogs, no telling what he would do to cats! We have read several articles about his recovering dogs and think it’s amazing that they are able to trust anyone or anything again.

    Wolfie, our toffee did not arrive either. Perhaps this means that SiberH and us are going to get all that was left!! Hopefully, it does not mean that it is being enjoyed by our neighborhood postal workers. We can’t wait!! Mom (being her fluffy self) will probably hoard most of it for herself!!

    Rio, we hear you are recruiting cats for the next mission. We were too nervous (scaredy cats) to go on the first mission…a lot of big dogs in that van, you know. But if AbbietheKitty and Alice Johnson are brave enough to help the plunderers, we are too! And we know our blog dogs would never hurt us on purpose.

    We weren’t able to open the Astrid file you created. Just kept getting the word “test”. We’ll keep trying.

    Alice Johnson: yes I am familiar with tins of charcoal under propane tanks; also tins of charcoal under cars (if places don’t have electricity to plug in). You have to be careful with doing this with cars–I had friends who would get up at 2AM all winter and hike 1/2 mile to their car and do the charcoal thing for awhile so that they would be able to start the car in the morning. I live in a house heated with oil but that means $1500 every six weeks during our long winter and $300/month electricity–and I switched to energy efficient lights but the price of electricity keeps going up. Of course for 4 months don’t need to turn on lights and use little electricity and I need no fuel in the summer months. And, of course, I never have to pay for water or trash pickup since I have a well and there is no trash pickup.

    B. Stover: there is no way to legally prevent him from getting a dog although public opinion works wonders. Most states have very poor laws with regard to dog abuse or puppy mills. A person can be closed down and reopen again or just go to another state.

    Mollypop: it is -40 during the day and -50 at night. Tonight it is to go down to -52 and for some reason where I live I am often 5 degrees colder. Ten miles away (where I work) it is 5 degrees warmer. It is the same flat area so it is strange that I live in this weird pocket. In the summer it can be raining all around me and it is like I have an umbrella over my property.

    Thanks for the advice Alice and Siber-H. Peace has reigned, though they used the spat as an excuse to clean out the refrigerator.

    Speaking of which . .

    C.Harris: I bet you don’t use your freezer in the winter!

    Wöökie: Enjoyed the card. Very nice.

    Riö: I love throwing the elves. Gets rid of some of my aggression. . .

    Absolutely no way should Michael Vick be allowed to have another dog. I respect that he served his sentence, and seems to be turning his life around, but he forfeited his privilege of being a dog’s companion for life as far as I am concerned.

    Gus&BooBear, You are welcome to go on our next mission. Us blog dogs will protect you.

    I can’t open the Astrid file either, but I am sneaky. I know plunderers like Stover and Rio will discuss it enough that I won’t really be missing anything.

    Foster really looks bad in the Astrid file. He lured Ray to Albie’s and presumably tipped off the police, who were on their way just after C&B got there. And his scent keeps turning up everywhere.

    The person who lured Ray to Albie’s either said he was Foster, or Ray assumed “the guy who works for Albie” was Foster. We don’t know for sure.

    Good night all.

    Siber-H – Try this one. It’s not as nicely formatted as Rio’s, but maybe it will open for you.

    Wow!…We just finished the episode of Psyche that spoofed Twin Peaks…heh!… The ending and the music gave my friend goose bumps with the memories of it…grunt!… So after Christmas she is going to order the whole series through Netflix, if it is available….sneeze!…I guess the that show was on about 20 years ago, unbelievable… sniff!

    Molly!…The credit card was cancelled by Admin…grump!… I think he became suspicious of all the strange purchases he knew nothing of…wheeze! …That’s why we are without funding for the next trip…snort!… I’ve been racking my brains on how to get supplies and the Ole Van up and running, but it’s not going to happen anytime soon…snuffle!…Probably not until after all of the Holidays…gruffle!

    Unless!…The Kats can pull off a bank job without being caught!…heh!

    pssst…guess what. It is snowing here! Mom just had to go outside and chase me down to get me to come into the house for bedtime. I will admit that she got a little cold, wet, and snowy, but she will live. We have about 4 inches so far. I can’t wait until I wake up tomorrow and can frolic in it. Christmas has come early!

    Good Night Friends!!

    Hey y’all! Mom did some Christmas shopping after work, so she’s just now getting around to turning on the computer for me. Dad asked her to do him a favor and get something for his dad — my other Grandpa, not the one who had the operation. So Mom bought one thing, and then she found a better one, so she decided to go ahead and buy both and let Dad choose. Now Dad’s saying maybe he won’t send either one. Mom’s not a happy camper!!!

    Siber-H: You must have gotten the snow we were supposed to get last night. One of Mom’s co-workers asked her if she’d be able to get to work OK this morning (since she has a 40-minute commute), and Mom asked why she wouldn’t. So then her co-worker said it was supposed to snow — which Mom hadn’t heard. But Mom just rolled her eyes and said it wasn’t going to snow — and she was right! I guess she knows more about snow than these Southern weathermen!!!

    I assume we all understand that we are talking about more than dog-fighting. I have the sensitivity not to make you sleepless with specifics that would haunt any sane person.

    I found that initial interview with MV on “60 Minutes” very telling in that he says how he never thought about what he did. What a chilling and revealing thought.

    Now in December 2010 he says that he would probably still be “putting my life in danger” had he not been caught.

    Could any sane person imagine leaving MV alone with a dog?

    Hi All… I’m Alex, a 7 yr. old Border Jack. I consider myself a thinker, not a reactor; kinda like Chet. I’ve given a lot of thought to the Michael Vick request to own a family dog. When I was about 1 there was this president who died, Ronald something, and he used to say “trust but verify” a whole lot! I think most humans are pretty trusting and forgiving, not unlike the nation within a nation, and would say let Michael Vick have one of my kind, definitely not a Pit Bull or other fighting dog, but a family pet. Then keep an eye on the situation and see if what he says is like what he does. I really like kids and don’t think Michael Vick’s kids should be excluded from the joys of owning and caring for one of my kind solely because of what their Dad did in the past. What say ye, Chet?

    P.S. I hope you enjoy the pic of me driving my boat. My owner says I’m an excellent Sea Dog !!!

    Alex, do you want to be the one to volunteer to spend some sleepovers alone with Michael Vick and we’ll all keep an eye on the situation and see what he does?

    We don’t think he should even be allowed to breathe the same air on this planet as decent people. He should still be locked up and certainly should never own a dog. Only a sociopath would engage in the types of behavior that he has. Now he’s sorry??? DUH! Believe in karma – some day that piece of human garbage will get what he deserves. I think we speak for dogs everyhwhere (we are Siberian Huskies)when we say NO NO NO. No dogs for that #$%&@(!!!
