Friday Hound Blogging

Hmmm...where have we heard this before? Oh yeah, here. Looks like Mr. Carney is having his own personal Groundhog's Day.

Raynham-Taunton Greyhound Park owner George Carney has filed a lawsuit challenging an attempt to ban dog racing. "More than 100,00 people signed that petition," Carney said. "But they aren't the boss of me."

Carney’s suit alleges the ballot question is invalid because it is limited to stopping cruelty against greyhounds, it contains subjects that “won't help me make my trailer payments,” it constitutes an attempt to get me to work for a living, and because the question is not in proper form for submission to the people.

"The wording is too clear," said Carney's attorney Joel Kozol commenting on the last part. "I mean, you read that and you know right away that you're voting to end the senseless exploitation of innocent animals. We can't have that."

Backers of the effort include the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Harvard Law School Student Animal Legal Defense Fund, Humane Society of the United States, Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, several state animal shelters, including the Taunton Animal Shelter, and several veterinarians. "You ever see a bigger bunch of animal rights whackos in your life?" Carney said. "I bet they've never even been to a racetrack."

Could be. Bet you wish they could say that about you, huh Buffy?

Buffy is curious of her surroundings. She likes to smell everything around her. She is calm and easygoing. She follows her family around the house. She also likes to follow the family grey around the home and does not want to miss out any action. She is a happy dog who wags her tail often. She seems to be a quick learner. She wants a lot of attention and will lean against you for pets. She also gives kisses. Buffy would do well in a working family home with another dog to keep her company or as an only dog in a family with someone home more often. She would do well with well-mannered children, 6 and up.
