    Whaaaaa?

    Glad I took this picture of these happy hounds earlier this year, then, at Bestbet Orange Park. Don't they look like they're having fun?

    Nice picture...

    I was surprised about that amendment, understand it, but I would think that is a good number of jobs lost. Good number of dogs lost too, which I guess is the point.
