Friday Hound Blogging

For Friday Hound Blogging this week we'd like to take a bit of a break from reporting on the crazy misadventures of that wacky group of ne'er do wells known as the overlords, and draw you attention to the world wide plight of these dogs. In case you don't know, greyhound racing takes place several other backward nations around the globe.

As bad as conditions are for the dogs in America, they are often worse for their international cousins. Take Ireland for example, or the export of dogs from Australia to Korea for racing. You can be sure the overlords in Australia will be sending their best to their Korean counterparts. Yeah. And can you say "dumping ground?" We talked about Spain last week. Don't make us go there again.

And speaking of going there. Okie Nitera would like to go to a permanent couch, right boy?

Okie is a very happy dog. He is always wagging his tail and makes friendly contact with everyone he meets. He is a very silly and energetic boy who loves to play and explore. He seems to think the handsome greyhound in the mirror wants to be his friend so he paws at it, not knowing it’s he. After he eats his meals he likes to stay clean by rubbing his face on the rug or carpet area... Who can resist a self-cleaning guy? Okie is super sweet and is going to be a very special companion. He sleeps with his front paw over his ears, which is very cute. He is a good guard dog and will bark when he sees/hears things outside the home. 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.

Windy City Sniper Update: Windy is very loving. She loves to give kisses, be petted, and follows the foster mom around the house like a shadow. She is curious, happy, playful and a bit energetic for a greyhound. She likes to lie on her back in the “cockroach” position so you can rub her tummy. She likes kids; her tail wags a lot when she sees them.
