Greyhounds by Wendy Pirk

Greyhounds were once in the royal families and can be seen in many royal portraits, sitting patiently beside their owners. The dogs were bred as hunters and were highly prized for their speed. Today, they are mostly known as racing dogs, reaching speeds of up to 44 miles (70 kilometers) per hour. These dogs love to run and will chase anything that moves. They just can't help themselves. Surprisingly pet greyhounds are notoriously lazy when indoors with the family, preferring to lounge around and soak up the affection they know they deserve.
