I Was Injured

Don't worry, it was last October. I first want to update you about yesterday. Yesterday was Sunday. We didn't go on the Greyhound Adventure walk because it was too far away this time. Mom and dad had a lot to do because they were leaving for vacation the next day. They brought me to the fenced in soccer field to run. Mollie, Kiera and a new dog came too. The new dog was an Australian Shepard named Daisy. She had just been rescued and only with her new human a week. We had fun playing. Mollie and Kiera's mom gave us water and Kiera and Daisy got into a fight. No one got hurt. They both tried to drink from the bowl at the same time. After we ran, we went for a little walk.

Mom and dad left around 10 this morning. They put suitcases in the car. Mom said they would only be gone a few days and that she would miss me. I wanted to go, but they didn't allow dogs at the motel. Sarah is staying with me, Ben and Charlie now. Mom brought her lap top on vacation. The motel has internet access- very slow!! Mom got an E-mail from her friend Christine. She runs an organization called Grey2K. They are trying to end Greyhound Racing in the United States. Mom had entered me in a photo contest for a calendar. Mom gave Christine my history. She looked me up and found out that I had been injured on the race track last October 8th. I fractured a lot of bones in my left hind foot coming around the second turn. That was why I was retired. I had to be in a splint for awhile. The track where I raced (Seabrook, NH) just closed to live racing. I am the last recorded dog to be injured at that track. I hope that all the tracks close very soon so no other dogs have to be hurt
