Friday Hound Blogging

Regular readers of this blog are probably used to the looks they get on the mean are used to stories about the overlords doing strange things to try and stay out of the labor market, but this is one move even we can't figure out.

Corpus Christi Greyhound Racetrack owners do not want to begin live racing until August 2010, but may start simulcast races in April.


"It's a brilliant plan," said Track general manager Rick Pimentel. "See, by 2010 all the other tracks will be closed and we'll be the only place you can go to for greyhound racing. We'll corner the market!"

But Mr. Pimentel, the reason all the tracks are closing is because no one wants to go to greyhound races anymore.

"Oh. Well, see that' we didn't...OK, look I'm going to have to get back to you on that."

Ah, another perfect business plan down in flames, huh Buddy?

Buddy wants to be a lap dog; he tries to curl up with you and before you know it his whole body is in your lap. He’s very curious. He likes to stand up tall and stretch. It’s almost as if he needs a scratching post. He hides his rawhides in the house. He will bark if he sees something new. He is very friendly and comical. Buddy would do well in a working family home with well mannered children, 8 and up. He would be great in a home with an 8-year-old boy or girl to grow up with them. He’s good with other dogs, and would be fine as an only dog. For more information about this dog, and other rescued racing greyhounds looking for homes, go here.
