Hounds Home For The Holiday

Woo Hoo! Another day off coming up and in the true American tradition we plan to totally forget why we're having a holiday and spend the time looking for the bottom of the Stoly bottle.

And speaking of tradition, we also plan to honor another tradition which we just made up, Hounds Home for the Holiday by expanding our weekly Hound Blogging from once a week to...well...more than once a week. We're not really sure how all this is going to work out because we haven't really thought it through.

But hey, isn't We Didn't Think It Through like the mantra of blogs or something? Or maybe that's Bush's motto. Anyway, a holiday is coming so who cares. For today's Hounderama let's get international.

"Go Irish" is becoming the motto for a group of northwest Ohio dog lovers who promote adoptions of unwanted greyhounds. In the case of the North Coast Greyhound Connection, the dogs are retired from Irish racetracks.

Ay, and they'll not be worryin' about with those bleedin' mongo saps what used to own 'em once they hit the states, eh Fire?

Fire AKA Coal is very outgoing and friendly. He is confident and very happy - his tail wags in circles. He is very affectionate. He will approach and place his face in you hand for attention. He follows the foster family around the home all the time. When there are many firecrackers going off in the neighborhood, he thinks it is the starting gun and he is ready to run. He is curious when he hears dogs barking on the TV. 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.
