Greyhounds have been racing this weekend at every track in the UK. Greyhounds are in fact dogs.It doesn't surprise us but it may surprise some people. People seem to think greyhounds are not dogs but running machines .Greyhounds are one of the most gentle sensitive dogs out there. On bonfire weekend 4/5 November they will be absolutely Petrified.
For those of you that have dogs at home that are scared of fireworks, you will know how distressing it is to see them so scared and not being able to help .Greyhounds that race not only have to run while fireworks are going off but they are kept in the holding kennels at the tracks or on the vans so there is no getting away from the noise of the fireworks.
The racing industry bangs on about how much the dogs welfare matters. So you would think just one weekend a year they would do the right thing by them .Please don't bet on dog racing. It's a cruel self regulated industry. YOU BET THEY DIE .
