Friday Hound Blogging

Well well well, let's see what the overlords have been up to this week. Two executives at a New Hampshire Greyhound track who have been indicted on illegal gambling charges have lost their jobs. Sort of. They were "suspended with pay."

"The layoffs had to do with the management and operation of the track and were no reflection on their guilt or innocence," a track spokesperson said, "as soon as the heat's off, we'll bring them back.

Meantime in Iowa, Louis Roden gets high on racing, but his dogs are just high. "Hey. I can't watch them all the time," Roden said, "you know what the crowd that hangs out around a race track is like."

Yeah. We do. Now let's meet one young lady who won't be hanging around a race track any longer, More Candy:

Posted by Hello

Candy is very outgoing, energetic and puppy like. She is just learning how to play; she likes to carry the toys around the house. She starts to lick her lips and slurp when she gets excited. She also tends to jump up on people when she gets excited. (Her foster mom is working on this.) She is happy, friendly, and very affectionate. She always wants to be touched and petted. She can be a little vocal when she is excited. She tends to calm down when she it getting pets. Her foster mom says she has an inside voice and an outside voice (inside is more whiny/ yappy, and outside she sounds like a Great Dane).
