National Greyhound Association President Chuck Marriott said a dog trainer could have cocaine "on his hands and he brushes the dog with his hand, the drug goes into the dog."

Uh... yeah. Gives new meaning to the old phrase, "Smell my finger."

Haha Ignom, that kid must be on coke.

...the report raises questions about drug testing procedures.

But it doesn't raise concerns about abuse?

President Chuck Marriott said a dog trainer could have cocaine "on his hands and he brushes the dog with his hand, the drug goes into the dog."

Who is he trying to fool with that statement?

Greyhound racing should be outlawed.

Who is he trying to fool with that statement?

Well, he had a double-handful of cocaine, and he was petting the dog's nose and mouth.

I think greyhounds look like Paris Hilton.

/try to envision it...yep

For a second there, I thought they were talking about the buses. Greyhound buses OD on cocaine - on the next Geraldo.

Greyhound racing = a great way to spend a night. Good times, dropping a few buck betting on the puppies.

"Division officials said the positive tests are most likely the result of incidental contact, rather than an attempt to fix races."

Sorry, but, "The dog ate my stash!" only works with weed.

giggling to myself imagining the dog licking its lips repeatedly, like if you give them peanut butter...

2004-06-08 05:08:12 PM  

That's one way for a crack racing dog to smoke the competition.


(Rock beats Science Diet?)

C-note? I thought most dogs used singles, or pen tubes....

My dad has a grey hound, they are very stupid dogs. It is hard to express the lack of brain activity these dogs have.. I'll break it down...

Gives new meaning to... tha biatch is on crack.
Little glass pipes littering the kennels, damn shame I tell ya.

Generally they're on women's chests. Do you really need Fark to find porn on the internet? That's like going to the beach and asking the lifeguard where the sand is.

Canadian snowboarding greyhounds get busted with pot all the time.
 
2004-06-08 05:23:09 PM  
Incidental contact my ass...

Coked-up kennel cleaner stumbles and grabs a greyhound being led on by a handler
"HEY YOU GOT COKE ON MY DOG."
Coked-up dood smiles
"You got dog on my buzz!"
Cue cheezy commercial muszak
Coke and racing dog...two great things the go great together.

/yah, I should be working.
 
2004-06-08 05:24:56 PM  
That's just freakin' wrong.

BTW, you people do know there's other places to get free nudity besides Fark?
Right?

My insane cousin once poured coke (the soda) on a dog & licked it off. Then he did the same thing with ketchup. Then he played with a brick for half an hour.

Ummm, yes. And professional baseball players have steroids in their systems because their hairdressers and masseuses all take them regularly, not because they're cheating sacks of crap. It all makes sense now...

Most greyhounds are sweet, gentle, loving and VERY eager-to-please. I'm sure some can be stupid, but I've not ever run across any dummies yet. We own 2 Italian Greyhounds and they exhibit intelligence daily (usually in a sneaky "I knew you weren't looking" sorta way).

Here is Santino the Italian Greyhound when he was still a pup:

I have not ever bet on the dogs but It makes me wonder whet the hell Birdstone was on.
 
2004-06-08 05:35:00 PM  
...and to add my own breakdown of a Greyhound's life:

65% sleep
15% eat
10% run
10% worry about what the other greyhound is eating/sniffing/viewing (very nosy and jealous dogs)

While your dad's greyhound may be quite stupid, you have no idea what you are talking about.

LOL...I'm just picturing that. But seriously...who are they trying to fool!?

National Greyhound Association President Chuck Marriott said a dog trainer could have cocaine "on his hands and he brushes the dog with his hand, the drug goes into the dog."

Right, maybe if his hands was caked in it. How are they

a) hiring a coke fiend in the first place to train/groom the dogs

b) hiring multiple coke fiends that are so clumsy they are coming to work with enough coke on their hands to get into most of the dogs' systems.

No indications of trying to fix the race my ass. Does coke even affect dogs the same way it does us? They want to fix the race they should give the dogs meth.........

The article said they did not contact the authorities. WTF? Finding cocaine anywhere should be a quick indication something is amiss.
