FASTEN YOUR SEAT BELT CAUSE IT'S GONNA BE A BUMPY NIGHT!


Greyhound Nation, you are currently in a fight for survival. Some of you may not like what I’m about to say, but when has that ever stopped me from speaking up for what I believe in and the greyhounds I will forever stand up for.

If you truly wish to survive, stop doing the same old things. Realize this round is no longer in the legislative arena. The playing field is now in a state-wide campaign to destroy your livelihoods. The opposition is based on a value structure of hate and propaganda and manipulating the facts. Your first step must be to act professionally. No more stupidity on social media. No swearing. No duck faces. If you want to be taken seriously, act like it.

A leader needs to rise to the top and take charge. Without guidance, a plan, vision and/or a clear mission, the Greyhound Nation is running amok. A leader needs to put together an experienced team that can manage the message and keep all up to date in a timely fashion. Can we afford to have our message be presented as if we are coyotes scratching fleas? We need individuals that present themselves as professional, accurate and knowledgeable members of our cause.

I call on the National Greyhound Association to step up and save the Greyhound Nation and bring aboard a leader to lead us against the evils that want to destroy greyhound racing.

This is not a state legislative issue, it is currently a state-wide campaign, it is an issue that affect every state with greyhound racing and greyhound farms. And no matter what side of the issue you take, it is also an issue that will impact greyhound adoption organizations.

We CAN do this. Let the nation see who has real values built on honesty, integrity and let them see that those opposing greyhound racing have values based on hate, manipulation and political deals.

We need to remove the "me" and "I" from the landscape and look to a leader that can guide us as one.

You can fool yourself. You can cheat until you are blind. It not only can happen, it IS happening. We can change the future if we reach for survival with a strong, honest and forceful leader and save Greyhound Nation.

Would you treat your dog this way?



In their newest hunt to destroy all and sundry regarding the racing greyhound, a “humane advocate protector” organization recently stated they will ask the Florida voters one simple question “Would you treat your dog this way?

What if the Florida voters learned that this same organization has a board member who was accused of “abusing” greyhounds several years ago? Does the “humane advocate protector” leadership and fellow board members fully vet anyone associated with the organization?

Several years ago, several people witnessed what at the time they called greyhound abuse by the head of an adoption program. At some point, after the adoption program head met privately with the witnesses, several backed out of the claim but it is my understanding no disinterested party could investigate the charges. The person and several witnesses quickly left an organization that would have investigated the charges and made factual determination if greyhound abuse had taken place.

While an investigation was not able to be conducted due to the principal’s departure from the organization, just knowing that action was witnessed and reported makes one wonder if the “humane advocate protector” organization has the right to ask anyone “Would you treat your dog this way?” when one of their board members may have done exactly what the “humane advocate protectors" often pillory greyhound trainers for doing?

We will never have the true facts from all involved in the situation but based on their previous actions, if this was someone on the greyhound racing side the “humane advocate protectors” would be running to every media outlet with the story regardless of documented facts and asking, “Would you treat your dog this way?” 


So how would you treat your pet dog(s) in an extreme situation if their safety was at risk?

Race fixing or “humane advocate protector” urine fixing? Part II

Someone recently ran a back-ground check on an individual who currently represents the “humane advocate protectors” organization as a lobbyist in State of Florida. This individual was at one time in charge of the department that oversaw greyhound racing in the State of Florida and would have hired many of those who currently oversee greyhound racing or very least be on very friendly terms with many in the department.

For disclosure, I did not run the report, nor did I ask for it to be run. The report has been shared with me in full. I will share one very disturbing part of this report:

Even more disturbing that the organization pushing a ban on greyhound racing in the State of Florida may have hired an individual with a crack cocaine problem to lobby for them as they focus on negligible amounts of substances in a very small number of drug tests of racing greyhounds.


Florida voters need to ask themselves, is this the type of organization we want asking us if this is how we would treat our dogs and pushing a major change to the States constitution?

Race fixing or “humane advocate protector” urine fixing?


Several articles have quoted a “humane advocate protector” with statements such as this with regards to the drug testing results of a few greyhound in Florida over the past months:

" the most likely scenarios are someone trying to fix races,”

I want to go on the record and ask if it is as the “humane advocate protector” wants to imply - that someone purposely gave greyhounds cocaine for race fixing - or did someone purposely fix the drug test? If test results say no K9 DNA present in the urine, whose urine, was it?

Yes, I realize that the result may be due to degraded sample, but if the “humane advocate protectors” are allowed to speculate with no actual testing data or facts showing that “race fixing” was even remotely possible, I will speculate with an actual test result and leave the readers with this question – did someone who wants to push a constitutional amendment to ban greyhound racing in the State of Florida fix the results of the drug test with his/her own urine or that of a paid activist?

The 2013 challenge for "humane advocate protectors" that they have remained silent on.....


In June and August of 2013 I posted a couple of blogs, one titled Greyhound-Gate and the second titled Got-some-splainin-to-do. It is now 2018 and should note, the “humane advocate protectors” have remained silent regarding these serious issues. Why is it they do not want to discuss these items?

I for one believe the greyhounds and humans involved in greyhound racing, greyhound adoption, greyhound welfare and greyhound advocacy deserve and should always be treated with and doing business with integrity and honesty.

It is my opinion since the “humane advocate protectors” have not addressed these serious issues, honesty and integrity is something they do not believe applies to themselves!

You Say Tomato...

You don't have to be an Einstein to Google a quote correctly.
Even a grade school teacher knows that Albert is not spelled A-l-f-r-e-d.

Maybe this image should be put on a big banner and hung in the offices of the "humane advocate protectors" because not everything they put out in cyberspace or in the hands of legislators is 100% correct.
