US President Barack Obama is in the doghouse with canines and canine-lovers everywhere. Obama recently called Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffery Lurie. In the call, Obama praised Lurie for giving animal abuser Michael Vick a second chance in the NFL.
Vick previously served 19 months in prison on dog fighting charges but has since returned to the field. Obama praised the move, because so few former prisoners get a second chance to play professional football.
Vick says he would like to own a dog again, but is prohibited from doing so.
