Friday Hound Blogging

Hey, you think Attorney General Alberto "Berty slick lips" Gonzales has problems, try being Paul Carbonneau for a while. You may remember him as the overlord we told you about last week whose short lived career as a document forger was about to come to an end (Damn you gloppy white out!). Well, it looks like he has company.

The West Virginia Racing Commission has suspended racing privileges for seven more greyhound breeders until they can prove their dogs are healthy and free of steroids. "Look, one of the greyhounds we're testing is six feet tall and has a neck that 24 inches around. We're not buying that he's just a 'big eater.'" said George T. Sidiropolis, chairman of the West Virginia Racing Commission.

Dean Miner, one of the breeders charged told reporters, "No one gave me a definitive explanation why I was being forced off the track, but I do have a pretty good idea why.'' He declined to elaborate on advice of his attorney who was heard to say, "Don't admit to anything and wash that white out off your hands."

Meanwhile, another group of overlords we told you about several weeks ago is still trying to get the state gaming commission to let them lose their shirts. Again. The National Cattle Congress will appeal a judge's ruling that keeps the group from re-establishing dog racing at the Waterloo Greyhound Park. Barnaby Scuttle, law student for NCC filed a notice to appeal the ruling to the Iowa Supreme Court. "We just don't think it's in the purview of the courts to protect stupid people from themselves," Scuttle told reporters. "And make sure you get that I said 'purview,'" he added. "We just learned that."

Apparently neither ethics nor intelligence are in the "purview" of the overlords, huh Bubba?

Bubba is friendly, playful, a quick learner and affectionate. He loves attention. He is a happy dog that wags his tale often. Bubba is a Second Chance at Life Dog from the Coldwater Prison Program. Bubba would do well in a working family home with well-mannered children 10 and up. He is good with female dogs, but he prefers to be the only male dog in 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.

Bongo Update Bongo would do best in a home with another average to larger size dog to keep him company, as he tends to be vocal when left alone.
