Re: “Greyhounds put in harm's way so racino can prosper

Eric, you are full of hot air. You don't live my life so you can't say that I haven't been stalked and harasssed. I most certainly was by a then grey2k board member. What's the old adage about walking a mile in someone else's shoes?

I have not seen you and anyone else here address: coyotte hunting, FWACC28 or anything else mentioned. You all keep skirting around those questions.

To state that greyhounds are NOT athletes is totally untrue. Not sure who made you the authority on what words and definitions mean, and what is or is not an athlete. They certainly are incredible athletes. Perhaps you are jealous because you are not 1/2 the athlete that a greyhound is.

Grey2ks "facts" are twisted and miscontrued used for their own agenda. And yes, grey2k in many instances does use old data or just a few pieces of info over and over again ad nausium leaving OUT many other facts and data.

As for your statement about me not having all the facts and details on Petey, you are again wrong since I spoke directly to folks with the greyhound adoption group involved.

And as I've stated over and over again, yes, there are still bad apples in racing. There is one track in particular what I would love to see closed down immediately. But in general, the racing industry has vastly improved in recent years. Yes, they still need to continue improving but to state that the whole industry and everyone is it is bad, evil, abuse, corrupt, inhumane, etc. etc. is biased, discriminatory and self righteous. Come down off your high horse Eric.

Re: “Greyhounds put in harm's way so racino can prosper

Oh and Virginia McKean as for your gambling reference. I don't give a darn about gambling. I would be happier if that part was removed from greyhound racing completely. I see Greyhound racing as a sport and the greyhounds as athletes.

Hmmmm...and let's see, there was that corruption case alledgely involving Carey Theil in Virginia, I believe it was.

And I hate to disappoint you, but greyhound racing world wide is really not on the down slide. In fact, it is on the rise in places where I wish it would not be. For example, did you know that Grey2k (supposedly unknowingly) was partnering/supporting adoption groups that were selling supposedly retired greyhounds to South America for greyhound racing there? See there's lots more to the stories than they want you to know.

Re: “Greyhounds put in harm's way so racino can prosper

Go read: http://grey2klies.blogspot.com/. There are plenty of facts there with examples of lies and half truths from Grey2k.

I have been harassed and stalked by grey2k zealots previously when I used my name. Not making that same mistake twice.

And you, Eric and Virginia can't tell me that you would not do bodily harm to anyone who harmed your dogs. If you say you wouldn't you are either lying or don't care about your dogs.

I will not allow my dogs to become pawns in your twisted propaganda.

I LOVE how you all still skirt the issue and atrocities in bush racing and using greyhounds to hunt coyette (to the detriment of the greyhounds). You also have skirted the fact that grey2k did NOTHING about the FWACC28. What about the Galgo situation in Spain. You all only talk about that every so often and the atrocities there are sickening.

Yes, I know all about Petey and contributed to his medical bills. But as usual, you are only telling half of the story. For example, the owner, once contacted stepped in to help and then even signed hom over to the adoption group.

You all love telling half truths and in many cases out and out lies. You relish in the fact that the average person won't take the time to do their own research as I have done and realize you are not presenting all the facts, you are using old facts in many cases and you are twisting other pieces of information for your own agenda.

I could on and on but I'm tired of listening to your propaganda of lies and half truths.

Re: “Greyhounds put in harm's way so racino can prosper

Virgina McKean, I am scared because many of you are fanatical zealots who stop at nothing even if means resorting to vandalism and violence. I love my dogs more than anything else in the world and I would KILL the first person who tried to harm a hair on their heads.

I have nothing to feel guilty over. I know that I am out spreading the good word about greyhounds EVERY day of my life, and updating the publics' misguide perception about majority of the racing world.

And you know, the public is relieved when they find out Grey2k has been spouting lies. They tell me so much of what Grey2k spews at them just didn't make sense. For every person you are telling that racing is ALL bad, I tell many more people not to believe everything they hear and to go find out for themselves as I did. I used to be anti racing too. I used to believe all the lies from grey2k. Then I decided to find out for myself. I did my own research. Met LOTS of people on both sides. And guess what I found? Grey2k lies and the MAJORITY of the racing community over the last 4-5 years I have been doing my research are good folks who DO care about the dogs. Stop staying stuck in the past and wake up and realize that the racing community is improving and wants to keep improving. Is it perfect, good heavens no. But to condemn it for the sins of the past and not recognize the improvements is an abomination and not very Christian (being as you were quoting bibical verse--or are you like other bible thumpers who talk the talk but don't walk the walk? I prefer to walk the walk and let my actions speak for me).

Yes, they are exceptions in the racing world, but as I keep saying over and over again. There are exceptions in EVERY single industry in the world. They are bad lawyers, teahchers, cops and dear God, LOTS and LOTS and LOTS of REALLY bad parents.

I don't work in the racing community. I get no monetary gain or perks--in fact spend my own money to help adoption groups and individual dogs. I do it because I love the breed. I work on the adoption side because when the greyhounds are done racing, I want to help them find wonderful forever homes where they can enjoy a second career as a much loved pet. I'm still afraid of you irrational zealots so no, I'm still not signing my real name.

Re: “Greyhounds put in harm's way so racino can prosper

Also Virgina McKean, things have changed a lot in the last 10 years or so, but you are so wrapped up in the past that you don't see it. Catch up to the modern world, will you?

And if someone doesn't want to be in a neutral group they can go join a different greyhound adoption group. You make it sound like GPA chapters are held captive. Um, I know lots of folks in GPA chapters all over the country. they don;t sound too unhappy or like their hands are tied to me. You are COMPLETELY AND POSITIVELY MISGUIDED, UNINFORMED and QUITE POSSIBLY OFF YOUR ROCKER. Did you forget to take you medication today?

Re: “Greyhounds put in harm's way so racino can prosper

Sorry Eric--I don't use my name to protect myself and my dogs. All through the years fanatics are know for mob tactics. It's in the news all the time. Somebody protests something and their dog is MYSTERIOUSLY poisoned. You can call me a coward but you Grey2k folks don't care about anything but your agenda so you would not think twice about harming me or my dogs. I'm giving you that opportunity.

AND just like Carey--you never address the issue about other greyhounds in more horrible situations like coyote hunting or bush racing. Hmmmm....funny how you all manage to skirt the issues with greyhound abuse and neglect OUTSIDE of racing. Where was Grey2k when the FWACC28 or the dogs siezed from the same person almost exactly a year later?

And to Virgina McKean, you would be just the kind of person who would try to harm me or my dogs. You scare the daylights out of me. Religious fanatics think they can do whatever they want because they are "acting" in the Lord's name.

Re: “Greyhounds put in harm's way so racino can prosper

When will people understand that Grey2k doesn't about the dogs? All they care about is ending racing and gambling. Well I don't gve a damn about the gambling side. But I do know greyhounds LOVE to run. No one has to force them or actually "train" them. They have the instinct. The training comes in so they can learn to run in a more controlled and safer manner. Owners and trainers don't want greyhounds getting injured. That's an assinine belief to think that racing as a whole in this day and age doesn't care about injuries.

Yes, there are some bad tracks, trainers, kennel operators, owners and breeders. There are bad people is every flipping industry in the world. Hello--do you people all live on Mars? We need to keep evicting and banning those individuals from racing. The racing industry is not perfect, but in the last 10 or so years, it has come along way.

My dogs love to lure course. Guess what? Dogs get injured lure coursing. Heck, my dogs get injured racing around the backyard sometimes. Does that mean I need to make my dogs stay indoors and never get to do anything? I wouldn't want someone to do that to me so I sure as heck wouldn't do that to my dogs. My dogs get to try different dog sports and activities to see what they seem to enjoy and then we pursue that. There are more people in the racing world who care more about the dogs than grey2k does.

And I am part of a GPA chapter and I resent the HELL out of Grey2k folks saying that we feel like our hands are tied and we have to be neutral. We're neutral because we care about the dogs which is more than I can say about Grey2k. If Grey2k is so concerned about the dogs, why aren't they doing anything about greyhounds being used for bush racing and coyotte hunting? Because all they care about is ending racing. Where was Grey2k when the FWACC 28 needed help? Nowhere to be found. I don't see them trying to end coyete hunting with greyhounds. When you ask Cary Theil about it he says he wants proof that greyhounds are used to coyete hunting. He hadn't heard about that. Yeah, right.

When Grey2k comes in and get a track closed and then leave the adoption groupswith a mess to clean up. Ask the adoption groups in the areas where grey2k did their dirty work.

I for one am sick to death of Grey2k's dirty little agenda. Sorry, I'm not posting my name because I don't want to be harassed like I have been in the past. I also fear that some idiot grey2k zealot will decide they'll show me and harm or take my dogs. Not happening.
