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

Eric, You are SO right in everything you have said about this industry
and
Mr. Scaredy cat is just not that smart, he/she show his/her intelligence
more and more every time he writes something......

I have dealt with this type of attitude for years even from the very top of GH racing, Mr. G. Guccione.

They have to justify what they do somehow, and I would say to all of them that they should be looking for other jobs~

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

Wow, Mr, No name! I do believe Eric is EXACTLY right on each issue he brought up regarding your very slanderous comments. And I might add, I believe the reason you choose NOT to state your name is you are afraid you might be liable for your slanderous statements! Coward! Anyone can say anything when they are not afraid of accountability!

Another reason NOT to believe anything you say and TO believe all Grey2K
and the other anti racing people say, they back their stats with facts, dates and names, and they are not afraid to let people know who they are,nor am I!

You, whoever you are, are to be pitied, you are the pro racing zealot..........
Go ahead and keep convincing yourself that all is well in greyhound racing, but if you had two working brain cells, you would be wondering why in the world and I mean world, is greyhound racing going down! Why is it ending, BECAUSE NO ONE LIKES TO SEE THE ABUSE OF THESE SWEET DOGS!
Why does their continue to be nationally known abuse case after abuse case!! And if you have not noticed there are many other ways to gamble, that DOES NOT HURT Animals!

Greyhound Racing has many side affects, one poor little guy named "Freeway/Petey" !! I suppose you dont care what happened to him but of course if you were rational you would realize, something that horrendous would not have happened to a greyhound IF NOT FOR GREYHOUND RACING IN THE FIRST PLACE!

I will not waste my breath on the likes of you anymore, but will continue on with helping the ever deserving greyhounds...........and continue to let the public KNOW the plight of the racing dogs!

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

To Mr. No Name or should we say Mr. Paranoia!
Wow, never realized how paranoid some of you
racing folks can be.

The facts are the facts, and I am up on the current
greyhound racing and GPA facts. Sorry if that
scares you.....

You racing folks always have to make it someone
else's fault, cause you just can't look in the mirror.

Gosh, maybe you should be scared if you are so
guilty............not of those trying to help and save
the greyhounds, but all of those you are involved with
in the greyhound racing industry.

Even scared of scripture and now resorting to name calling......

As I said earlier, the lid on the coffin of greyhound racing
is about to close, so maybe you and your co-horts should
be looking for Real jobs............ones that dont include
animal abuse!

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

It is written, "The Lord is my light and my salvation whom shall I fear? The Lord is the defence of my life" of whom shall I be afraid? Though a host of demons encamp against me, my heart will not fear; though war rises against me, even in this I shall be confident."The Lord is with me like a mighty terrible one. I am not afraid. I cannot be threatened. My persecutors shall stumble and fumble, in Jesus mighty name.

This is why I continue to fight for the greyhounds and will until All are safe!

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

OH, Mr or Mrs GPA person, why dont you post your name!!


You have it all backwards! Grey2K and Reasonable caring citizens who have had enough of the abuse of these racing hounds are the ones who push to close the industry down.
I have news for you buster, YOU are the ones causing the problems and for years whether tracks close or are just seasonable, there has been a big mess to clean up
year and year of excess of greyhounds that are no longer able to make money on a track. You are talking to someone who has been rescueing for 20 years, you DO NOT know what you are talking about!!

And GPA IS NEUTRAL BECAUSE THE NGA, NATIONAL GREYHOUND ASSOC. MAKES YOU SIGN A CONTRACT THAT SAYS YOU WILL SAY NOTHING BAD ABOUT RACING!! THIS IS FACT!!!!!!!!!

We are NOT a GPA group and refused to sign contracts with the NGA as an adoption group. We have concsience!

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

First to Cyndi, YES, You are Exactly Correct in all that you said! We are a rescue, once they get to us they are safe, get all their medical, (we have spent in the 100s of 1000s of dollars on these dogs. we DONT get paid, we ask for donations and spend our OWN money ONLY for the sake of the dog!) Pretty good for all those racers, wouldnt you say!

As for Martha Bowman, first of all you say you love your dogs, well, lady you dont love them enough, Enough to stop putting them in harms way and for your self find a different form of employment. And Second, dont quote scripture to me, if You were trullty concerned about the bible, you would not be in the GAMBLING business in the first place!!

Thank you Peggy for your kind words!

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

And Now to Eric, A BIG THANK YOU! YOU HAVE SAID IT ALL AND DONE YOUR HOMEWORK! A PICTURE/OR/VIDEO IS WORTH A 1000 WORDS. The greyhound racing industry the world over needs to STOP RACING DOGS!!! And they need to stop the lies and the ostrich syndrome! No one believes anymore that racing dogs or horses for that matter is a good sport..............Look around, casinos everywhere! Get a clue people, and stop hurting these precious animals. Thanks Eric for All you posted!
