That's wonderful news fishlips..........the conditions they live in and the way they race them is unbearable and pure torture for those poor loving animals. I hope they rid it in every state in the country ex[fan] Good for you for adopting them away from that horrible life :[IMG]http://i2

When I am out with my dog people stop and tell me how nice it was that I rescued her. I always tell them that I am the lucky one. She is such a wonderful and loving girl. The breed is not for everyone. They are very quiet and probably won't play fetch but they are so loving and I think grateful for a home. They have never been in a home envrionment before or known love. They were raised on puppy farms and then lived in a kennel envrionment. It is amazing that thay make such wonderful, loving pets. If anyone is interested in adopting a greyhound I recommend reading these books. They were required by my adoption group and actually very interesting and easy reading. I especially liked the Dummies book.

Thought I'd put this under your Greyhound post fishlips: http://www.greatpetnet.com/630/jasmine-the-mother-theresa-greyhound/ It's a nice story ex[nod] I checked it out on Snopes.com and it's true.

Thanks, JW. I worked with a man who adopted a greyhound who was found muzzled so it couldn't eat and locked in a barn to starve to death as Jasmine was. I have heard so many sad stories about how these dogs are disposed of after they stop winning races. It's hard to believe that in this day and age that we treat animals this way.

Why do those people get animals? It can't be cause they have any love for them. It takes a sicko kind of person to do that to a poor defenseless animal. They should be treated as they treated their pet when thrown in a jail.

Hey I like your Thanksgiving avatar fishlips ex[happy]
