We have got a petition on the number 10 website for greyhounds. Never let it be said that we left the dogs to the mercy of a gambling business because we were told to by a member of the House of Lords who was acting as a consultant for that business. The way he put it was profit comes before welfare. Any regulations about welfare were “aspirational”. So, if any of you want to join us in poking a stick into this so-called democratic process, here is the website address.
Spread the word and let’s hear it for these poor beasts, bred in their thousands, every year, with never a thought for their wellbeing – just their speed.
Incidentally, when Jilly Cooper and I tried to present a petition into No. 10, accompanied by our pet greyhounds, we were told that we couldn’t take the dogs with us because it would be “disrespectful”.
