Dogs Can't Bite Michael Vick After All

The original design.The original design. The new design.The new design.









Somewhere along the line, the three guys who came up with the "Michael Vick Dog Chew Toy" got busted by copyright law and had to change the design and the name of the toy, because Michael Vick's likeness and name really belongs to the NFL.

Not to worry. The new "Vick's Dog Chew Toy" is on its way. The only thing you'll have to do is decide what price you'll pay for it.

Yup, pup! Ebay sellers are already taking a bite out of your human's credit card, while bids are as high as $71, as of this writing, for a toy advertised as the "Michael Vick Dog Chew Toy." But according to the manufacturer of the toy, it will not ship until September and will not be the Michael Vick likeness in the Atlanta Falcons uniform. It will be a generic African American footballer wearing a generic football jersey. And Vick is the likeness of a pitbull, supposedly a gentle, loving pitbull.

This is "Vick"This is "Vick"

So, you can pay $12.99, including shipping, for Vick's Dog Chew Toy, that even a pitbull can't tear apart, according to the manufacturer, or you can pay $71 for it on Ebay.

That's the buzz for today.

Heck With The Dolls

Just put Vick into a pen with the dogs and let them rip.

More Vick Dolls

Make them similar to Barbie with different scenes--like "Prisoner Vick", "Vick in therapy with Therapy Doll"; "Homeless Shelter Vick"; "Parolee Vick with Electronic Monitor", etc.
