The Greyhound Hall of Fame responded that they're looking for pics of Derek's Cadillac and Blazing Red. They've offered to donate a signed/numbered print of "Blazing Red's Last Derby."

We need to figure out a way to auction that off or help it benefit adoption.

I had the pleasure of meeting 16 Plainfield dogs today.Ten had been delivered on the previous stop, four were transferred to a rep from Maryland and Make Peace took 12.

All of them appear to have been well fed and taken care of.We washed,profiled,etc and three went to their forever homes.

Thanks to all involved who have cared for these dogs.

Finnsliz on GT said she talked to the people at Plainfield about getting more dogs and they said there were none to be had! Can anyone confirm that? Shocked

We got some very cool pictures of these guys from the Hall of Fame. I hope Angela can get them posted soon.

They should be up now!

Although the Plainfield hounds are now spoken for, I believe there's still a need for funds to help pay vet bills etc.

We also have a print of Blazing Red, kindly donated by the Hall of Fame, which will be auctioned to benefit Pups Without Partners. Details of that will follow.

Is it too late to send $$? I was on vacation, and will be out of town a lot in the next few weeks, but I could get a check out tomorrow if the race is still on!

Karen,

It would be greatly appreciated.There are a lot of medical bills which still need to be paid.All the dogs were examined,altered, teeth cleaned, heart worm tests and vaccinations.The average bill was $150 per pup.

Thank you.

Bob

PS When I met a number of them they had the best looking teeth I have seen in a while
