THE DOG MAHAL?

Everything cost more when the Feds get involved, even dogsitting. Don’t believe us? Ask Michael “Snoopy Corleone” Vick.

The U.S. Attorney's Office on Tuesday filed a restraining order asking the court to prevent Vick from paying other creditors if he doesn't have the money to pay for the pit bull dogs' care. So far, the bill is about $928,073, the court papers said. "The actual amount may be more or less depending on the ultimate disposition of the dogs, which will be determined in the upcoming weeks," the documents said.

When Vick pleaded guilty Aug. 27 to a federal dogfighting conspiracy charge, he agreed to pay the full amount of costs associated with the disposition and the long-term care of the pit bulls. One had to be euthanized, but the other 48 have been deemed candidates for placement in foster care, law enforcement or special animal sanctuaries.

OK, TAH fans, LET'S DO THE MATH!

The Government has 48 dogs in its care since August. The total bill is $928,073 or $19,334.85 per dog. Through Tuesday when the court papers were filed, the Feds have been serving as the Don’t KilluZ Home for Wayward Pitt Bulls for a grand total of 86 days. So that’s a grand GRAND total of $224 per DAY per DOG.

Pass the Verve Cliquot and the filet mingon Scooby Snacks.

Where do the Feds keep these hounds, and are they crapping on defense department contracted $486 per cubic yard sawdust while eating FEMA contracted $92 cans of KalKan?
