Goodbye champ!

You may have heard today about the death of Go Bronco the Greyhound in Sydney. Go Bronco was in a car which apparently got stolen over the weekend - shortly after a successful race - while his owner was picking up a bite to eat from a shop nearby.

According to news reports, thieves dumped the station wagon in Glebe with the dog inside. Thanks to a tip-off a couple days later, police found Go Bronco in Glebe - he was distressed and lying limp from heat exposure and dehydration. He arrived at Annandale Animal Hospital half dead. Vets did all they could to save him, but clotting became a problem. Go Bronco died yesterday around 5pm.

In the past three issues, Dogs Life has featured a series of articles on Greyhounds - their life from puppyhood to racing dog to retirement through the Greyhound Adoption Program. I have learned so much about these beautiful dogs and it breaks my heart that Go Bronco had to suffer like this.

I am disgusted by the actions of those thieves. If it was up to me, I would take them to jail and then turn off the air condition in their cell to see how it feels to suffocate in the heat of a locked cage.

This sickens me on the cruelty some people have against animals. As a devoted animal lover I am saddened to hear about what happened with Go Bronco and my hurting heart goes out to him and his family.
much love izzy and Tyson (maltese)

If it’s hard for me, then I will definitely get better, I also decided to find an assistant who will write essays for me, for example, this site https://essaysrescue.com/educibly-review/, where any written work that I need is done at a small price
