Friday Hound Blogging

Well, no one can say the overlords aren't imaginative when it comes to taking out the mean dumping their used dogs on people who suffer from the weakness of compassion. For years they've been convincing people to pick up after them by adopting so they can continue flooding the market with more dogs whose only flaw is that they aren't fast enough to earn cash for the overlord's trailer payment. Now they've convinced the Canadians that reckless disregard for another living creature is actually a good thing because people who care get to work extra hard finding the dogs a safe place.

On the bright side, we can say that having these folks from our northern neighbor around makes the world a better place. We wonder though how long it will be necessary to clean up after people (and we use that term loosely) whose idea of proper care is making sure the 4D meat is frozen enough to kill most of the bacteria before they feed it to the dogs. Really tasty stuff, huh Rita?


Rita is very friendly and affectionate. She likes to give kisses. She has started picking up toys and will run around the house with them. She likes to take the toys out of the basket and move them around the house. She has an average energy level for a younger dog. She plays and also enjoys relaxing. She looks like a black lab puppy with a thin nose because she appears all black from the front view. She can be vocal when her feet are touched and will “scream” when she thinks her nails are going to be trimmed. She is a little bit of a watchdog and will bark when she hears a strange noise or when she sees a squirrel outside. She is very interested in the ‘other dog’ in the mirror and the glass fireplace doors. For more information about this dog, and other rescued racing greyhounds looking for homes, go here.

Windy City Sniper update: Windy has recovered fully from her spay surgery and is quickly learning the ins and outs of being a pet. Her foster family says she is a fast learner who is curious, happy, playful and a bit energetic for a greyhound. By that they mean she only needs four naps a day.
