One time an aunt tried to make me feel uncomfortable about being a greyhound trainer. I was proud of the work I did with the dogs and the many homes I found for the dogs over the years. I had not seen her in a long time and when she found out what I did for a living she started to make references to the seedier side of the business.
I pointed out to her that the greyhound business was like doctors and daycare centers. Only the bad ones make the news. Since she had just made the news for a few of her activities (she was a doctor), she shut right up.
