From The LADY: What am I thankful for this year? The person who dumped Maggie. If Maggie's prior owner hadn't gotten rid of her, we never would of met her. Many people involved in dog rescue spend a good deal of energy hating the other people who abandon their dogs. But I've never gotten caught up in that kind of thinking. When we were involved in Greyhound Rescue groups, I never jumped on board with the people who bashed the greyhound racing industry. Without greyhound races, we never would have owned our two greyhounds.
I don't approved of how Maggie was dumped. I don't approve of how the greyhound industry produces thousands of unwanted dogs when they no longer win races. But I appreciate how these problems resulted in an opportunity to love. I am thankful for someone else's problem, because it feels so good to fix it. I am thankful for second chances, everywhere.
