Friday Hound Blogging

When last we visited the overlords, they were in a bit of a pickle. Seems that the state of Kansas had just figured out that running the units was not as profitable as voters had been lead to believe. In fact it wasn't profitable at all. Well, unless by profit you mean not having to work for a living. Umm...unless you happen to be one of the that is.

So what's a poor overlord to do? Change careers? Not much demand for talentless alcoholics with anger issues. Besides, there's that whole police record thing. Makes people suspicious. Besdies, a guys gotta do what he does best. Hey wait a minute! That's it! What are overlords best at? Sailing on De Nile. Check it:

Racing needs to stay here in Kansas. It was the beginning point for greyhound racing, the NGA (National Greyhound Association) and NGA Hall of Fame are here and a lot of the economy of Kansas comes from greyhounds. Umm...would that be the $900,000 plus shortfall that the greyhound tracks generated last year?

“As long as The Woodlands keeps running, I’ll be here,’ says Chris Maher, one of the most popular trainers at the track. "Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go see about renting a moving van."

Speaking of moving, this week's hound would certainly like to move on to your couch, right Audrey?

Audrey is a loving, playful, outgoing, friendly girl. She loves her tummy and ears to be rubbed and she has no problem locking her big brown eyes with yours to let you know that she trusts you. She is curious about everyone and everything that she sees. Audrey is like a puppy she is very energetic. She likes to sleep on her back, like playing dead. Her foster mom hasn’t caught her playing with toys, but she can be in the basement and she can hear Audrey playing with them. Audrey is a Second Chance at Life Dog from the Coldwater Prison Program. Audrey would do well in a working family home with well-mannered children, 8 and up. She is young and playful and would do well with another dog to keep her company, or as an only dog in a family that will exercise her often. 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.

Bongo Update: Bongo has settled into the family routine at his foster house. He is learning how to be a pet and exploring the many facets of retired life.
