Friday Hound Blogging

OK, so we're pretty certain that whatever genetic deficiency there is that results in someone actually thinking exploiting greyhounds is a career choice is not contagious, yet we're still at a loss to explain this extremely overlordish behavior on the part of the Governor of Kansas.

Oh wait, Kansas. We just answered our own question.

Even though she believes a new law to expand gambling in Kansas is constitutional, Governor Kathleen Sebelius said Wednesday she wants the attorney general to consider filing a lawsuit to get a court ruling to remove any doubt. "All this legal stuff just confuses me, Sebelius told reporters. "But I'm going to sign this bill anyway, because I like writing my name. See the little smiley face I use to dot my i's? Can someone spell governor for me again please?"

In what she called a ''piecemeal bill signing,'' she started in Wichita, went to Dodge City and finished signing the bill at the Cherokee County Courthouse, signing part of her name at each location, adding ''S-e-b-e'' to the signature line at the Woodlands Greyhound Track. "It gives me a chance to check my driver's license regularly," Sebelius said. "Make sure I'm getting all those e's and i's in the right place. Can't be too careful when you're signing laws and stuff you know."

Sebelius said she plans to meet with Attorney General Paul Morrison about a potential challenge designed to get a quick ruling from the Kansas Supreme Court. ''We're going to challenge the law we just passed so we can get the court to tell us we don't need to do that,'' she said. ''I am confident this is a good use of taxpayer dollars.''

Matt Grace, one of The Woodlands' owners, said he would welcome action by Morrison. "You don't know what a relief it is to finally find someone more stupid than me,'' he said.

Yeah, long time coming though, huh, Sue?

Sue is very sweet, happy and friendly. Her tail is always wagging in a circle. She greets people for attention. She is very affectionate. She will rest her head on her foster mom’s shoulder when she is in the chair and Sue will push down against her shoulder. She is a little on the shy side with new people and new situations. She takes the lead from the family grey. She really likes to play with squeaky toys. She tends to “shop” for clothing in the laundry room and will take it to her bed. Sue would do well in a working family home with well-mannered children, 8 and up. She is good with other dogs and seems to take the lead from the other dogs.
