Dead Dogs Don’t………..

…do much except be Dead.When Shelbourne Park and all the other Greyhound tracks have abused and used the greyhounds to the best of their abilities then there isn’t that many options for an over the hill 2 or 3 year old greyhound.

In fact there are really just 2; either they are lucky enough to be rehomed by overworked and underpaid shelters(and we’re not talking about the Greyhound Industry Public Relations Farce that rehomes a handful of dogs per year) or the more likely option of being Dead. And the thing about being Dead is that you don’t do much anymore. You don’t eat anymore, drink, play, walk, smell, bark, jump, roll or even dream (yep, it’s true, mind you I haven’t seen a dog sleep walk yet)………..

But then again when you’re dead, you also don’t have to run around an odd shaped track that is designed to have you crash at speed into 5 other dogs, you don’t get given drugs, you don’t have your ears burned/cut off to hide an ID tattoo, you don’t get raced in Spain till your worn out, you don’t get abandoned, you


don’t get maltreated and you don’t get raced/trained when you are injured.
And the wonderful people at the Greyhound Industry have gone to all the trouble of ensuring that there is no queue to become Dead. With 40,000 dogs killed each year between the UK and Ireland, quickly turning a live dog into a Dead Dog that Don’t is what the Greyhound Industry is all about. That and the money of course!
