The money flowing through Melbourne Greyhound Park and Club 52 as a result of live dog races fell nearly 30 percent in the past year.And some — including the track’s general manager, Pat Biddix — see that as a positive. Biddix and many of his colleagues across the state would rather not have to offer live dog racing at their venues...That's right. Time to circle the wagons. Time to show folks just how crucial the overlords are to the success of an industry that treats living creatures like so many used toasters. Time to form a union maybe, or, wait, what?
“Nobody bets on dog racing,” said Biddix, adding that only a handful of people ever show up to watch live dog races .“And we gave up trying to promote it,” he said. “It’s a product that’s old.”Holy Crap! Even the overlords don't want to be overlords anymore. And what's this old thing? What do you mean old dude? You're dumping greyhounds two years old or younger on adoption groups because they're not fast enough to make you money. Heck, some greyhounds never even make it to their first birthday because you don't think they'll ever be competitive. Where you getting this old thing?
“Melbourne is right, they’re not making money off of it,” said Dennis Tyler, of Greyhound Pets of America of Central Florida Inc.Oh, we get it. So when you say getting old you mean it's the idea that we can make our living sucking a few bucks off the backs of the dogs that's getting old. Shoot man, we could have told you that years ago, but we're glad to see you finally saved up enough money to buy a clue, right Knight?
I am very laid back and am having a wonderful time learning to live in a home. I take everything in stride. I love to go outside and play. I also love going for walks and do very well on the leash. I don’t really like being in my crate. I love larger dogs but I haven’t met any small ones yet. For more information about this dog, and other rescued racing greyhounds looking for homes, go here.
