I wanted to write a quick entry while I wait for the Atlantic City photos to get emailed to me (I broke even but we had an absolute blast). I do have 7 dogs at my house right now b/c I am watching 4 additionaly ghs! But I haven't been home to take cute pictures..so I will post about them later. But this entry..I think is long overdue.
I wanted to a take a few lines to say a big thank you to everyone who works tirelessly day after day to help rescue these beautiful retired racing greyhounds. There are groups of every shape and size located in most every corner of this country and abroad that are all out for the same cause...to put these great hounds on a couch..where they belong. And even with the concerted efforts of every group..they all aren't saved. Through this blog and other forums I have connected with people all over the world who share my passion, all working for the greyhounds.
The greyhounds can't express their gratitude but we all see it in their eyes. We are reminded every day why we do it. And I am happy with every opportunity I get to do my itty bitty part..but that part means the world to me and that greyhound. And I think that is what binds every volunteer together..we aren't out to change the world but we are out to change the world for greyhounds..one at a time.
So..greyhound volunteers around the world..give yourself a pat on the back. ;-) You deserve it! It is easy to forget why we started and what it is all about.
I think they are worth it! ;-)
