Friday Hound Blogging

Well, another week in greyhound exploitation...er...racing and what do we have to show for it? Another track closes. This is getting to be old news.

The track's decision is expected to leave its 42 part-time employees without jobs. "Yeah. We'll have to go someplace else to get minimum wage no benefit jobs," employee Rosalind Kivela said.

So, with all this bad news raining down on the overlords we can assume that because of their astute business senses and clear eyed view of the landscape they are making plans for the post racing future, right Eric Wilson, president of the American Greyhound Track Operators Association?

"The problem is the demographics of our industry are changing," Wilson said. "Young people want a gambling experience that involves computer technology. The industry is going to have to come up with some sort of methodology to incorporate that type of technology into the industry."

Umm...Ok...You mean like robot dogs? Not quite the same thing, but hey, it's your delusion. We'll stick with the flesh and blood versions, like this week's hound, Dangerous Benny G:

Benny is a friendly, happy boy. He loves everything and everyone. He is playful, a bit puppy-like and energetic at times, and he is very affectionate. He is snuggly, with people and other dogs, and he likes to lie at/on the family’s feet. He loves looking at his reflection in mirrors. He enjoys playing with toys and enjoys chewing dog chews. 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.

Hi,

I'm sorry for being intrusive in to your blog. But I am Melissa and I am a mother of two that is just trying to get out of an incredible financial debt. See my hubby is away in Iraq trying to protect this great country that we live in, and I am at home with our two kids telling bill collectors please be patiant. When my husband returns from war we will beable to catch up on our payments. We have already had are 2001 Ford repossessed from the bank, and are now down to a 83 buick that is rusted from front to back and the heater don't work, and tire tax is due in November.

I'm not asking for your pitty because we got our ownselfs into this mess but we would love you and thank you in our prayers if you would just keep this link on your blog for others to view.

God Bless You.

Melissa K. W.
