A love story from Behind the Razor Wire!
I've lived in a cage most of my life. My name is Bingo. When I retired from racing, I went into the 2nd Chance at Life Greyhound Prison Program. That's when I met Ron, my Inmate caretaker. He was sad and depressed like me. Many of my friends had been killed because they had no place to go. Ron thought that his life was almost over too. We taught each other what un-conditional love was.
One night as he held me close, Ron told me how he had felt before I came into his life. I think God saw where I was falling short, as I did not know how to get through the days. So He sent you to me.
Ron says, We have so much in common with these dogs. The difference between us is that they did their best. But when the dogs stop winning they are put to death.
When Bingo looked at me, I knew he loved me. I'm 49 years old and when I'm playing with Bingo, I feel like a kid. The razor wire doesn't exist. My heart is free. I'm not alone. It's a God thing. I'm starting to think there is something left of me to save, thanks to Bingo.
I made a promise to Bingo to save as many of these wonderful greyhounds as I can. My life sentence is going to mean something. I am going to save greyhounds.
