Friday Hound Blogging

A while back we told you about the Lakes Region Greyhound Park that had closed because it's owners were going to be guests of the local corrections bureau for a few years.

Because scientific studies have shown that most overlords were dropped on their heads as babies (It's true. You can look it up.) several potential buyers stepped forward to buy the track and continue watching their investments dry up and blow away like a leaf in a hurricane.

Recently though it seems that an attack of common sense has precipitated itself on some of the overlords because all of them have backed out of the deal. Well, all except one.

Another shakeup in the prospective new ownership of the Lakes Region Greyhound Park leaves Mississippi casino developer Marlin Torguson and his company alone as the likely buyer.

"I'm very excited by this development," Torguson said. "Now I'll be the sole owner of a beat up piece of real estate and a dying business. Isn't America great?"

"We'll start interviewing general manager candidates next week," said company spokesperson Rick Neuman. "As soon as the last candidate gets out of jail."

Speaking of getting out of jail, that's what happened to this week's hound when her sentence at the overlord kennel was up. No time off for good behavior though. Meet Lady Van Gough:

Lady Van Gough aka Genesis is a very wonderful girl who is great with kids, happy to greet you when you get home, sweet, easygoing, quiet, and affectionate. She will approach and nudge you wit her nose to get 5 minutes of attention and then will go lie down. She only has one ear and it will stand at attention when she is listening to things. She loves to lie in the kiddy pool to cool off. For more information about this dog, and other rescued racing greyhounds looking for homes go here.
