Friday Hound Blogging

Well, a pretty low key week on the planet of the overlords. Closed tracks are still closed. Jailed overlords are still jailed and the movement to end greyhound racing in Massachusetts took another step forward. As you might imagine, this has caused overlord apoplexy.

Raynham-Taunton Greyhound Park owner George Carney has vowed to fight the ban in court. When it was explained to him that the ban had not, in fact, taken effect but was merely going to be put on the ballot for a vote, Carney responded "voting is about what most people want. That's not how America works."

"The dogs are taken care of and well looked after," Carney insisted, his nose visibly lengthening. "This is a phony issue, and they've been able to promote it and raise a lot of money from a lot of suckers." And aide later explained that Carney meant to call people "suckers only in the best sense of the word."

Carney scoffs at the claim that racing greyhounds are mistreated. When presented with evidence he put his hands over his ears and shouted "LA LA LA LA LA, I can't hear you."

Ah, the overlords take the high road in the debate. That surprise you Eve?

Eve is a little goofy and playful. She is friendly and outgoing. She jumps around and pounces in a play stance for attention and love. She will also nuzzle in when the other dogs are getting attention. 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.
