A song written to speak up for the issue of 'disposable' greyhounds cast aside when the dog racing industry has finished with them.

'Racing to Death'

If I don't win today
I won't be here again
I've seen it happen to my friends
When their running days are done
Will it be over for me soon?
Can I come home with you?
I'm a greyhound on the outside
With a big heart on the inside

I've run so many times
Just a number on the lines
Just another winning streak
Just a gamble, at my peak
But soon I will be lame
I'll be out of this sad game
I'm a dog like any other
When my glory days are over

And I'm racing to death
For the price of a bet
My life is at stake
For the money you make
So spare me a thought
On that ticket you bought
It's signing my life away
I'm just a winner for a day

So here I am I'm lost
I've seen the gun, I heard the shot
I saw my friend old Billy Jack
I saw them drag him on his back
I don't know who is gonna save me
Please don't let them take me
I'm a greyhound on the outside
With a big heart on the inside

And I'm racing to death
For the price of a bet
My life is at stake
For the money you make
So spare me a thought
On that ticket you bought
It's signing my life away
I'm just a winner for a day

Crying or Very sad

^ Oh my goodness. I didn't know people did that to them. Poor things. Seriously, humans disgust me sometimes. They wonder why we have wars and crime everywhere, and then they go and slaughter innocent and beautiful animals all for the sake of... well.. sadistic pleasure I guess. This is purely the reason why I'm vegan. I hate the way humans treat animals like they're some sort of piece of rubbish that we can control and do anything we want with. They have a life too. God it's disgusting Evil or Very Mad

well im not a veggi, for years its been getting harder to eat meat everyday i think about the fact that animals shud hav rights ,its just because they can't speak up we think its ok to kill and eat them...ive been thinking about it all very seriously,it dosnt help my bf is a mad take away eater and throws a fit if i dont want to eat a burger...

well today i printed of some info about greyhound action an showed work. i work for Boots (ya know the place that sells medicine an makeup)
they would be glad to help me raise money for greyhoundnationaltrust .and ive contatced them asking when they next need help distrubuting leaflets outside race courses in manchester.and also gettin people to sign petitions .so hopefully thel contact me
i have a greyhound whom i love SO dam much,shes an ex racer and she has many old scars to proove it
its happening right now everywhere,if the dog cant run fast enuf some tracks pay sertian people to kill and bury or drown the dogs for only 10 per dog.now thats sick and wrong
and if the dog just barley hurts its paw an cant run they get a vet to put them down
most of the dogs that end up in kennels are there because theve been abandoned in a field or the rspca save there lives from being shot in the head but still alive.!..ah i cant go on .no more :Pheh

Sam, good on you for helping out. The greyhounds really need someone like you to help them.

I'm dead sick of animal cruelty.
