Hounds Home For The Holidays (Son Of)

What better time for a little good news that during this festive holiday season when we put aside or differences and join with childlike innocence and joy in a rousing chorus of "Festivus Pole, Oh Festivus Pole, How thy plating so shiny."

OK, maybe not, but still there is joy in Muddville because the forces of goodness and light have had their signatures validated.

"This is a key victory for the supporters of this humane law," said Tom Adams, director of communications for the Animal Rescue League of Boston. "Voters recognize that dogs deserve to be protected from individuals and industries that would do them harm."

But George Carney, owner of Raynham-Taunton Greyhound Park, one of the state's two dog racing tracks, said he would fight to keep the act off the ballot and, failing that, would launch a public relations campaign to see the question defeated.
Attempts to reach Carney were not immediately successful Tuesday afternoon as he had once again gotten lost on the way home from work and was thought to be somewhere in Pennsylvania.

Gee. Be a real shame if he doesn't make it back in time to vote, right Calamity?

Calamity a.k.a. Daisy Mae is friendly, outgoing, calm, and easygoing. She is affectionate she will use her nose to nudge you for attention and will put her head in your lap. She likes to play with toys and does not mind being in the middle of a lot of action. Her foster mom says she incites the “riots of play” in her foster home. She likes to race around the senior grey in the yard while he is lying down – she will run in circles around him and nudge him trying to get him to play.
