Time to end dog racing in state

Full story: Berkshire Eagle

I'm writing to urge all readers to please vote Yes on Question 3, on Nov. 4. Question 3 is the Greyhound Protection Act which, if passed, will phase out greyhound racing in Massachusetts by Jan.

OK - a few things here ..... Dogs fed a raw diet are recieving a species apropriate diet . Processed foods with corn and meal are NOT healthy for any dogs . Dogs do not digest them .

Shredded News paper makes good bedding for Greyhounds , because they are "Nesters" , they like to sleep that way .

You can not raise a race dog , that will be successful with out a healthy diet , regular excercise , and good living conditions ...think about it ... a dog has to be confident and healthy to be competive at any level . An abused , mistreated dog would be fearful , and not a confident runner . No good to a trainer .

When the dogs are done they are voulintarily turned over to rescue for rehoming . No gas chamber involved . Rescue just gets the dogs , and rehomes them with people , who think they are "rescuing a dog from certain death" . When they are really just getting a dog that has been pased along as a good candidate for a house dog . Why do greyhounds make such great pets ?
They are raised right .
