Friday Hound Blogging

OK, here's a puzzler. How is it that the overlords can do this :

The Naples-Fort Myers Greyhound Track will stage the richest race of the year when the $30,000 Naples-Fort Myers Classic is held on Saturday.

and then do this:

The Naples-Fort Myers Greyhound Track will eventually close and be sold unless the Florida Legislature lets it expand gaming to compete with Seminole Indians at venues such as Immokalee.

Give up? What's your guess Rocky? Mirrors?

“Rocky” is great dog who loves people. He encourages his foster family to pet him and likes to be doted on. To get comfortable Rocky likes to “make his bed” out of blankets and pillows in the middle of the living room floor. He builds them into a mountain and collapses on top. From there he can watch all the comings and goings of the foster family, and know when it’s time to run into the yard to play with his foster family’s Labrador. They are already great pals. Rocky would do well in a working family home with well-mannered children over age 12. He is good with other dogs and would probably be fine as an only dog.

Barbara Hecht Havenik? Sounds like something you recite when playing hop-scotch.
Her twisting and twirling and twining and orange shawl needs a complete redo. Pity the poor dogs who had to perform for that.
To bring such a classy canine down and for so long, we can only hope BHH goes to doggy heaven and someone , eventually, throws her a bone. Or not.
