S. Mackey's review for Amazon.com Books: 05/27/97, rating=7: A wonderful book for dog fanciers both young and old. Jet is an honest story of a Greyhound puppy born into a poor, working class family. The book centres on how the family deals with the hopes and dreams of owning a winning Greyhound. I enjoyed the character development very much. Although the story might lead people to believe that there is money to be made in breeding Greyhounds this is rarely the case. Breeding dogs should only be undertaken with a sincere desire to improve the breed. Thousands of these wonderful creatures are destroyed or adopted out to families every year. For anyone who has ever loved a dog, I highly recommend this book.

Mostly coursing and racing stuff. An oldie but a goodie. Almost every book by Clarke is an interesting read.
How to Raise and Train a Greyhound, Published by TFH Publishing
This is one of those slender paperbacks of which two-thirds is generic dog care information. However, the one-third which is written by Ms. Mueller is good information and the photos are quite nice.
