2022: this popular card has been updated with red background. Would be fab as an xmas card!
I hope that greyhound racing does finish in Australia. NSW and now ACT onboard.
I grew up in Annandale in the heart of Sydney. We had Glebe’s Harold Park across the road and could hear, see and smell the horses trotting. The sounds of the crowds every Friday night too. At one point early on I remember the dogs were there too but they ran at Wentworth Park in Glebe (further towards the city). We had trotters in residential blocks around our house and many people kept greyhounds locally. I remember their beautiful lines, caged faces and the poor things would get agitated if other dogs walked nearby. I hope there is a solution to stop racing these magnificent animals and that there is support for rehoming them responsibly. They do need to run, they do need to stretch their legs – perhaps the industry has a better way of training them that is cruelty-free.
I have always admired them but don’t think they’d live harmoniously with my chooks and free-ranging guinea pigs! Though Badger our pug would be happy to have long legs to chew on… The heart symbolises and love & freedom for these beautiful dogs.
