Friday Hound Blogging

Hey, you think Alberto Gonzales is living in a dream world because he thought his testimony before Congress was a success because only one Republican Senator told him to his face he should quit? Ha! He's got nothing on these guys.

For the first time in history, Derby Lane and Tampa Greyhound Track will feature year-round live greyhound racing and compete head- to-head, beginning July 1. Both tracks are expected to make official announcements next week. "Yep. We're open about a month and a half now, run about 12 races and get 22 people total, so we figure if we go all year the crowds will flock here," Derby Lane president and chairman of the board Vey Weaver said. "As the kids say, we got Teh Mad Bidness Skillzz."

When asked how the facts that greyhound tracks were closing all around the nation, how states were refusing to issue licenses, how attendance was dropping had affected his decision, Weaver responded that he was encouraged because "There'll be less competition for us."

Right. Hey, that guy don't know Jack, right Jack?

Jack is very calm. He enjoys affection but does not actively seek it out. He likes to play and be outside. He likes to be near his foster parents most of the time. He loves the daughter’s princess wands. He enjoys playing with toys and can fetch a ball. Jack would do well in a working family home with well-mannered children. He is good with other dogs and is also good as the only dog. 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.
