Winner's Circle

I wrote a couple weeks ago about Question 3, the ballot measure to phase out cruel dog racing in Massachusetts. But you don’t have to live in the Bay State in order to have your say. No matter where you live, you can vote now to help decide who will become the official spokesdog for the “Yes” on Question 3 campaign.

Gordon_b You might vote for Dawn, a favorite in Falmouth who has a following of admirers on the main street. Or Gordon, an 80-pound softie who shares his dog bed with a 5-pound Chihuahua mix. What about Snake, whose broken leg didn’t break his spirit?

Dawn, Gordon, and Snake are all rescued greyhounds, who suffered for years at the hands of the state’s two racetracks. Now they all have loving homes and people who protect them from cruelty and abuse, and they are racing to help the other greyhounds who haven’t been so lucky.

You can also check out the slideshow of other wonderful dogs who were in the running. Be sure to vote before August 11, and ask your friends and family to do the same.

It’s a tough call, and I’m not sure who I will vote for. I don’t know if Dawn, Gordon, or Snake ever won at the track, but all three have won our hearts.
