Friday Hound Blogging

Ask any of the overlords how much they care for the units and you're sure to get a earful of "like familys;" and "my childrens;" and "best of cares," until you think you're channeling Albert Schweitzer.

So we would assume that when the Plainfield track closed down, the overlords would be falling all over themselves recruiting folks to help get the 1000 stranded dogs to safety. We would have thought so. We would have been wrong.

After a year of helping the doomed Connecticut racetrack find homes for dozens of its retired racers, Claudia Rosenberg was told by track management she is "banned'' from rescuing pups in danger of being euthanized after the park closes.

"She told the gate person that is looks like we're all going to have to work for ourselves now, instead of making the dogs work for us" a track spokesperson said. "We don't need that kind of attitude."

"I just care about the dogs,'' Rosenberg said. "Fighting with the track is pointless. They're going out of business. Too bad the dogs couldn't run the business side of the track as well."

Yeah. Too bad. We would pay to see hounds in the stands and overlords chasing the mechanical rabbit as, we're sure, would this week's hound, Bar K Flyball:

Posted by Hello
Flyball is a great, affectionate, boy. He is very lovable and friendly. He is generally mellow and easygoing, but he can be playful at times and enjoys playing with toys. He will approach and nudge you for attention. He loves head rubs, hugs, toys, and playing with other dogs. He will bark for you to play with him. He is a toy collector, and he will take all the toys into his crate. He likes to carry balls and squeaky toys. For more information about this dog, and other rescued racing greyhounds looking for homes, go here. If you don't know about the plight of racing greyhounds go here.
