Friday Hound Blogging

Well, here we are at the eve of Christmas eve and we here in the marbled halls of IM Central are full of the spirit of the season. In fact we're pretty sure Stolichnaya means merry Christmas in Russian. On second thought since Russia is a heathen nation it probably means something godless like happy holidays, but no matter, we're full of something and feeling rather magnanimous as a result. At least we think that feeling is magnanimosity. Could be the bloody Mary's we had for breakfast talking.

Whatever. The point is that we're even feeling seasonally adjusted when it comes to the overlords and so we thought we'd provide a little video proof of their claim that the units...erm...the dogs always receive the best of care. Sort of a Christmas present to them, Ironicus style. So herewith and without further ado is a little snippet demonstrating how much greyhound pups enjoy their initiation into the exciting world of animal exploitation---tattooing.

Now, to the untrained eye it might appear that our little initiate isn't enjoying the ceremony by which he quits his life as a living creature and becomes a commodity, but that's just because somebody told you "the canine and human anatomy is so similar, that most human medicine has been developed using laboratory testing on dogs. Conversely, veterinarians routinely use human medications (labeled and dosed for animals) on their canine patients," and you think tattooing hurts because you know it would hurt you..

Ha! It's obvious you don't know much about preparing the units for market...uh...we mean training highly prized canine athletes because, as Ms. TheFastdogmom points out in the comments, Circumcision Biotch!!  In fact, as Ms. TheFastdogmom points out, many greyhounds don't even yelp. (for the record, at our uh...event analogous to ear tattooing according to TheFastdogmom--we yelped, with a capital YELP!)

Sp we're assuming that on the filming day only a sissy greyhound was available and the camera had to get back to Uncle Bill's before he realized it was gone, so what are you going to do?

So, to wrap up, getting your wanger whacked, getting an ear tattoo, potato, potahto, right Devie?

 Devie is a 10 year old girl who did her racing at the Dairyland track in Wisconsin before it closed. She has recently been returned because her owners could no longer care for her. For more information about this dog, and other rescued racing greyhounds looking for homes, go here. If you don't know about the plight of racing greyhounds go here.
