Let’s Be Greyhound Superheroes

Let’s Be Greyhound Superheroes

 

Greyhound advocacy should be fun. That may seem like an odd thing to say, because greyhounds are subjected to so much cruelty. Nonetheless, while we fight to end dog racing we should also take time to celebrate greyhounds for who they are: amazing animals that can be sweet, gentle, playful and even goofy.

That is why I am so pleased with the new GREY2K USA video, “A New Life for Greyhounds.”

 

Watching this video, I am thrilled by the nimble power and agility of Archie, Blue, Upton, Gino, Joey and Grace as they bound through cornfields. I am amazed by the obvious mirth with which Frosty plays with the mirror. I still laugh every time I see Maggie May lying in the sand, quietly blinking her eyes, and am filled with joy in watching Ziggy dressed as a greyhound Superhero.

Like my adopted greyhound Zoe, these dogs inspire me. By celebrating them, I am encouraged to continue doing my work to end the cruelty of greyhound racing. Please watch this new video, and let me know what your favorite fun greyhound moment is!

If you are unaware of the cruelty of greyhound racing, please take a moment to visit GREY2KUSA to learn all the facts. See the map showing the seven states where dog racing is still legal. Check out each of the fact sheets that outline the animal cruelty issues and the history of greyhound racing.

For the greyhounds,

Carey Theil

Greyhounds are fantastic pets. Used to go lure coursing with them. They are 50 mph couch potatoes. You can't find a better pet.

Animals are free spirits and humans abuse it.

What a charming video. The dogs are absolutely beautiful. Seeing a happy dog is one of the greatest pleasures in life. They get right 'into it' and wag their tails, bark excitedly,and jump around. Dogs just melt my heart.

Awww...loved the video! They shouldn't be forced into a life of racing. That's just not humane.

Jumping in the grass, so graceful. I own 2 hounds at present, a 3rd passed away.
I don't think I will ever be without 2 atleast, my goal is 4, but my house is not big enough.
They are beautiful, graceful and funny dogs. They do need to run, but not on a track.
