One of the most heartwarming stories of the love of a wonderful dog.
Dogs are such great soul mates and give so very much. This is an amazing story.

Well written bio-brief. Comet (a retired racing Greyhound) is, indeed, a savior. When I rescued Joey (Jet Missile, also a retired racer) and had him trained to alert me to low blood sugars, I was amazed at how much more he added to my life. When I read of Comet's picking up on Wolf's needs so quickly and intuitively, even I was mesmerized. And, yes, everyone should save a Greyhound. You'll learn that they are 45 mph couch potatoes, of course, and how much a saved animal can love being saved.

I was captivated by the dog. I thought the human was his own worst enemy! Sometimes the story dragged a little and felt repetitive, but it is totally worth it. Comet is a charmer and will make you want to own a greyhound.

A moving story about a gentle and faithful spirit with 4 legs and a tail.

I loved this book. Honest, moving, well-written. And it does make you want to adopt a greyhound!

An excellent book! A biography of a man who is crippled by back pain.
He rescues a greyhound dog from a shelter. It turns out that they rescue each other. Best book i've read in some time!
