Hi everybody, I'm so excited about the recent news for Greyhound Adoption Program graduates that I just had to blog this. Unless you have been living under a rock you would have heard about the new Queensland muzzling laws that came into being on the 1st of July 2009 after receiving royal assent last year.
To celebrate our new found freedom, we are holding a muzzle free walk and greyhound gathering at Newfarm park on Saturday 11 July at 09:00 hours. We hope to see you all there. We are expecting the Media to attend so please have your hounds looking their best (blasted paparazzi, going through our bins and then I get the blame for it)
Please remember that only greyhounds who have passed their GAP assessment can go unmuzzled in public. This means that non GAP greyhounds and GAP fosters will still need to be muzzled. If you think I'm making this up, I've had the House of Hound's subsidiary legal firm, Markin, Barkin & Fleetfoot lawyers review the act and they sent me this confirmation-
Program prescribed for decommissioning greyhounds
For section 197(3) of the Act, definition decommissioned
greyhound, paragraph (b), the program prescribed is the
Greyhound Adoption Program of Queensland offered by
Greyhounds Queensland Limited ABN 87 128 067 247.
As you can see, its all true although I'm not sure I like being referred to as "decommissioned". I'm not an old power station or desalination plant! I did however like the movie "Under Siege" with Steven Segal about the decommissioned battleship so I guess I can live with that. I think the likeness between us is uncanny.
I hope to see everybody at the walk and until then Readers remember "Don't piss off the cook" - Murphy.
