The Greyhound Rescue group I volunteer with is brining up 12 ex-Racing Greyhounds today from Caliente Mexico, rain or shine. These dogs will wake up this morning in a crowded racing pen in Mexico and go to bed tonight officially “retired” in a loving warm foster home in SoCal. A truly long and incredible journey for these dogs. Probably the same feeling you might go through when you hit 65 years of age and walk out of your office for the last time with a box of office trinkets, a gold plated company wrist watch and a card signed by everyone in the office saying “Have a Neat Summer”, except these dogs never got a gold watch, a generous pension plan, a 401k, sick time, 3 weeks vacation, a dental plan, a 20% discount from the company store or an ergonomic keyboard when their paws started to hurt.
I have been one of the official dog washers for this group for three years now, have handled hundreds of Greyhounds, look forward to this monthly event and come home feeling good about the future of these dogs. Because of the rain today it will be a challenge but we will get it done. . Help support Greyhound rescue and help save these beautiful and gentle creatures. http://www.greysave.org/
Have A Nice Grey,
