Friday Hound Blogging

Today we turn our attention from the triumphant return to Europe by Bush and his retinue to matters of great import, namely, finding homes for rescued racing greyhounds.

We have been asked on occasion why we refer to these dogs as "rescued" racing greyhounds. "Are these dogs in some sort of danger?" queries our innocent interlocutor. Is Sponge Bob a homo? we reply.

Basically the dogs have three choices when they can no longer serve the greed of their human overlords: Death, being sold for research, or adoption. If the dogs are injured, they may not even get the chance to be sold into research, let alone adopted. It's lights out buster, we need your crate for the next profit center.
So, meet this week's escapee, Miz Jerzey:
Miz Jerzey

Jerzey is a little shy in new situations. She is friendly and likes affection. She is easygoing and quiet. She is starting to play and get into things that she thinks are fun. She is very expressive with her ears. She holds her ears funny; she holds one straight up in the air and one folded forward – kind of like a donkey. For more information about this dog, and other rescued racing greyhounds looking for homes, go here. If you want to know more about the plight of racing greyhounds go here.
