Hi peeps, how are you? I hope you are well and if not, know, I am sending good vibes your way.
I’ve been out with the dog for about an hour. We met lots of other dogs which is good because she misses having a pack. She is an ex-racer greyhound and grew up in a kennel with lots of others around.
We hope to be able to get another one once I am working again. Greyhounds are such lovely dogs. They are often treated rather badly when racing. We dont know what happened to Sherky but she gets rather scared when we talk in a certain way or make certain movements.
We assume she has gone through a lot because she can be quite stubborn and thats not a preferred trait for racing dogs. She is one hell of a dog of contradictions but we love her to bits.
All I can ask you is please do not bet on dogs. It might look like a nice way of spending time but these dogs get literally slaughtered as soon as they don’t race well enough or are not good for breeding. It is appalling what humans do to fellow creatures.
Please have a look at these videos:

I am not adding more links because it upsets me too much just to think what is happening.
But if you want to help stop this cruelty you can sign this petition: Stop Greyhound racing

Sorry, for being a little serious this morning but it is so important to stop animals being tortured just for our entertainment!
