Friday Hound Blogging

See, a man can only take so much. Even the overlords have their breaking points and after one more time being told that exploiting the units is not a viable career choice, well, enough is finally enough.

If you were to fire up those crazy internets, cruise over to Massachusetts Secretary of State William Galvin’s website and punch up the list of the Commonwealth’s registered gaming lobbyists, you’ll find a who’s who of players vying for Governor Deval Patrick’s three state gaming licenses. Donald Trump, Suffolk Downs, the Mashpee Wampanoags; they’ve all registered with the state. There is one group on the list, though, that seems a bit out of place. It’s GREY2K USA, which, far from being dedicated to bringing poker tables and slots into the state, is fighting to get dog track racing out of it.

Oh pullleeeasse. What is with these Grey2K people? Dog welfare this and dog welfare that. Look, how's an overlord to make the trailer payment if these people are always getting in the way of our plans to separate social security recipients from their payments, right Peter Gundrum from Milwaukee?

This group Grey2K makes me laugh. 95% of the greyhounds in this world would NOT BE ALIVE if it wasn’t for greyhound racing.

Yeah Baby! Want a chance to be born, exploited and then dumped in a shallow roadside grave? You'd better thank greyhound racing you ungrateful cur!

Greyhound racing has been around for what 75 years or something like that and you people continually bring up these same few instances of abuse.

Right, you bunch of tree hugging hugging we mean. You keep bringing up these same few instances of abuse like it happens every day or something.

And I’ll tell you another thing. A greyhound will never eat better than when he is in a racing kennel. They are fed high quality meat.

You better believe it you bunch of animal rights whackos. You wish you could eat as well as the units do.

Chasing a rabbit is a natural instinct of a greyhound. They actually enjoy the racing part of their lives. If you don’t believe me take your greyhound out to a field and take him off the leash and watch what happens when a rabbit comes around.

Yeah. Get yourself educated you bunch of Birkenstock wearing, Volvo driving, green tea drinking busy bodies. Just make sure the rabbit is on a metal pole that runs around a dirt track. Then charge people to watch. Oh, and if your dog doesn't run fast enough to suit you, shoot it. They love that.

So don’t act like these animals are being tortured in the kennels all day at the track because they aren’t.

Yeah, they're not tortured. We kill them out right when they don't win. Well, except for the ones you animal lovers find out about. We have to adopt those out because everyone gets their panties in a bunch about a few dead units.

Bet you're glad some panties got bunched up for you, huh Rusty?

Rusty AKA Hemi is very friendly and outgoing. He is playful, but calms quickly. He is very easy going, well-mannered and adaptable. He is a happy boy who wags his tail often and gives kisses. He loves attention from everyone. He follows his foster family around the house. He chatters his teeth when he is excited. He is a Second Chance at Life Dog from the Coldwater Prison Program. Hemi would do well in a working family home with well-mannered children. He is good with other dogs and is fine as an only dog.

Rusty kinda looks like Mookie!

Ironicus Maximus said... have a point. I bet if they both jumped up on the bed and you scattered some pillows around for them, you wouldn't be able to tell them apart.

Here's to a pillow-full life for Rusty soon.
