Friday Hound Blogging

We're coming to you today from the Dogs Get The Best Of Care Department here in the marbled halls of IM Central. the DGtBoC Department is a division of the Don't Listen To What We Say, Watch What We Do Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of You Can Tell We're Lying Because Our Lips Are Moving, Inc.

On an almost weekly basis over the last 10 years we have brought stories to you of the disconnect between what the overlords say they do for their dogs and what they actually do. The overlords, for their part, have mostly muttered and sputtered about how we were using the activities of a few bad apples to malign the character of those upstanding citizen sportsmen and women who take pleasure in commodifying  innocent living creatures and causing them unnecessary pain and suffering up to and including death, in the fruitless pursuit of (no) profit. All of which begs the questions, if your industry has provided enough bad apples for this sucky blog to spill its pixels over for 10 years, how many bad apples does it take before you have a whole bushel of bad apples? Before all your apples are bad?

Let us answer that for you. You don't have any good apples. Even overlords who might truly care for their dogs care for them, not as you or we do, but as car enthusiasts might care for their cars. It's a great piece of machinery and they may be proud of it, but if the transmission blows out, or a sexier model comes along, they have no qualms about selling it and moving on, just as even the most caring overlord has no qualms about dumping a slow dog that is otherwise perfectly normal.

Well, we take you on this little trip through history as a way of getting to our point, which is this will be the last Friday Hound Blogging there will be. In fact this will be the last Ironicus Maximus there will be. We've done this for 10 years now and it's time to grow up...erm...we mean move on. To all those overlords out there who occasionally wandered into their public libraries and had a seventh grader show them ow to log onto the interoobz so they could have someone read this blog to them, if we insulted you over the years, good. It's the least you deserve for the harm you've done. If we believed in an afterlife we are sure you would spend eternity as a pimple on Satan's butt. And that's still less than you deserve.

To the rest of you, if we've been able to give you a moment or two of jocularity and a fleeting break from the soul crushing evil that you battle every day as a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves, we are glad. Being able to laugh in the face of tragedy is what gives us strength to go on. We were told a long time ago by a animal rights wacko much wiser than we that if you're going to get into this business you can expect to have your heart broken on a regular basis. No only broken, but crushed under the weight of the enormous cruelty you must confront each time you enter the fray, and it is only your sense of humor that will save you, only your ability to step back occasionally and laugh at the incredible absurdity of it all. If we have provided a few of those moments for you, we are glad and it's been worth it.

So we'll leave you with three more examples of that absurdity; three more examples of the overlords doing what they do best at the expense of helpless greyhounds trapped in their barbaric industry. First Alan Harrell who "cares" for his dogs by drugging them. Then there are the stewards of greyhound tracks in NSW Australia who "care" for their dogs by running a cover-up of the deaths of 135 otherwise healthy dogs because they knew it would "upset the greenies." And finally, Alexander Verhagen, who "cares" for his "unneeded" dogs by driving them 250 miles so they could be killed for free, even though he knew that was a violation of racing regulations. Bad Apples? Bad crop if you ask us. Time to plow it under.

Millie, you never met Wabash Petie. He was the first refugee greyhound we featured on this blog. You will be the last. Good home and long life girl.

Millie is a one year old female who can live with cats or small dogs, and she can be an "only dog." 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 and here.

I am going to miss you madly.

You are my #1 blogger of all time. Don't rest on your laurels...whatever that is.

I hope you keep the blog online as every now and then I need an injection of Friday Hound Blogging (different than a steroid injection to prevent me from going into heat).

Promise me you will do that?!

The Overlords never get old just more cruel and stupid.

Hugs to you and yours...KZ in terrible Tucson

Nancy said...

I look for your posts every Friday as I have for many years now.

I entered tonight's with anticipation. Because you never, ever fail to hit the nail on the head of this industry.

Reading tonight's gave me a feeling of loss. I echo Karyn in that I will miss you madly.

The Overlords truly need someone like you to remind them just how stupid and cruel they are. Apparently obvious is out of their realm...

Be well, my friend.

And above all ~ THANK YOU!!!

Unknown said...

I'm so sorry to hear this is your last blog post. I've enjoyed reading your posts and will also miss them. Atm, I am waiting at our group's kennel for a load of 4 injured greyhounds coming in from the Caliente track. I'm transporting 2 of them to another group. One of these days this will happen no more. Thank you for taking the time over the years to write this blog.

Unknown said...

Thank you for your witty sarcasm and enlightening me more to the inherent ignorance of those that seek enjoyment from the exploitation of the gorgeous grey. Little by little we see progress being made. Enjoy your extra free time. :-)

Ironicus Maximus said...

Thanks for the kind words. We're thinking we'll miss this blog.

Unknown said...

Well Fred, seems you've finally been muzzled. Wise move.

Ironicus Maximus said...

Not quite sure where you're getting muzzled from there Bobby boy, but if that's what you'd like to believe, go ahead because one thing I've learned about the overlords over the years is their entire concept of reality is based on what they'd like to believe.

Whatever, Freddie. Those who muzzled know why. As I said, wise decision.

I don't much about dog racing, but I know about the horse racing industry (very cruel). Is dog racing (the GreyHounds) cruel? Why or why not?

Academic writing is clear, concise, focussed, structured and backed up by evidence. Its purpose is to aid the reader’s understanding.
It has a formal tone and style, but it is not complex and does not require the use of long sentences and complicated vocabulary.
Each subject discipline will have certain writing conventions, vocabulary and types of discourse that you will become familiar with over the course of your degree. However, there are some general characteristics of academic writing that are relevant across all disciplines.
