Friday Hound Blogging

Dang. Sometimes you just can't catch a break, you know? Just when the overlords get done their way with the use of classic argumentative skills and geometric logic...yeah, that'll do....just when the overlords get done putting out one fire, another one erupts.

According to state records, greyhound injuries increased to a record level at Hinsdale Greyhound Park during the first four months of 2007, nearly tripling the total from the same time period a year ago. "Well, that's going to happen when dogs race," said a worker at the track who asked to remain anonymous because of warrants. "We're fine with it though."

"These terrible injuries are occurring every day at Hinsdale Greyhound Park," said GREY2K USA Board Member Michael Trombley. "During the first four months of the year, more than a dog a day was injured."

"That can't be right," a track spokesperson said, "We don't race every day. These animals rights whackos are always making things up." When it was explained that Trombley was talking about averages, the spokesperson responded that he had "never been good at math."

"We have not given up in our effort to end this cruelty," said Trombley. "Dogs play an important role in our lives, and deserve to be protected from individuals and industries that would do them harm."

"Right." said the track spokesperson. "We completely agree that the exploitation of these animals is both cruel and unnecessary and we want to see it stopped as much as everyone else. Well, except for the fast dogs. They're still making us money. I got bills you know."

Good to know someone's looking out for you, huh Darwin?

Decisive Strike AKA Darwin wants to be the center of attention. He is very easygoing and mellow. He is very affectionate. He loves to be scratched behind the ears and under his chin. He will sit there for hours if you pet him. He gives funny “burps” when he finishes drinking his water. Darwin would do well in working family home with well-mannered children, ages 4 and up. He is okay with other dogs and would probably be fine as an only dog. For more information about this dog, and other rescued racing greyhounds looking for homes, go here.
