Boy Howdy, them overlord folks sure keep a close eye on what's going on in the industry. It's 'cause they worry so much about the welfare of the units...er...dogs. Don't believe it? Look here.
A greyhound trainer in Launceston, northern Tasmania, has been warned off all racetracks in Australia for five years. Arthur Reid of Invermay had pleaded guilty to conduct detrimental to the image of the sport in Tasmania, and to using an assumed name. Oh yeah baby. Let's get us some detrimental conduct up in here. And calling yourself KrayZ 4 DalayDeez? Nuh unh. Not when you look like this.
So all you dog huggers out there need to chill. The overlords got all da skillz to...wait...what's that? Oh, in Oregon? Well, was someone using a fake name? No? What do you want from us then?
Excuse me? How many dogs? Six? Come on, we lose more than that just moving from track to track.
Oh, so now you're gonna get all up in our grill sayin' "We needs us some o' that regulation. Somebody needs to be Ree Sponsible."
Come on man, let's get real. Everybody knows the reason we let the dogs run is so we can stay out of the unemployment line, so when they can't keep us off welfare, what else can they do?
OK, well there is that, but how many times can a greyhound save someone's life before that just gets old, you know?
How many times? Don't know, but what say we find out, huh Betta?
Betta is laid back and easygoing. He is friendly and affectionate. He will approach for pets, nuzzle and will lean against you for attention. He likes to lean against you while on the walk, and will push you in circle if you let him. He has occasional playful bursts and will grab the squeaky toys and run around for a few minutes.
