Howwwwwdeeeeeee y’all! I is back, but jest barely. Sees, I wuz down in Atlanta on a visit when I decided to stick around when I heard Michael Vick changed his mind and decided to enter a guilty plea.

Ya jest wouldn’t believe all thuh stuff I saw and heard. Since there wuz so much, I’ll give you the top 10 things I heard at the hearing that led to Vick entering a guilty plea.

10. To enter a plea, bark once for guilty and twice for innocent.

9. For image sake, I won’t eat any more hot dogs at the stadium.

8. Now, let me get this straight. I have to buy little No. 7 jerseys for everyone on the jury who owns a dog.

7. So it won’t help my case to legally change my name to Huckleberry Hound.

6. I’m just glad we don’t have a road game in Cleveland.

5. What do you mean every time I go outside of Atlanta I have to be on a leash?

4. I guess the Kibbles & Bits endorsement deal is dead.

3. And you thought giving the finger to the fans was the worst thing I ever did.

2. I’m even getting hate mail from Garfield.

1. I’m just glad Underdog is fictitious.
