The pictures are lovely and so quirky. Swifty shines through. I hope she got a treat for being such a star!

What a character Swifty is!

It's so good to know that retired greyhounds - who are after all working dogs - can find a happy life after racing

Marilyn Chalkley is a writer and Arts publicist who lives in Canberra with  her husband and Swifty the rescue greyhound. Before Swifty she owned a number of dogs, mostly kelpies. She cannot believe how different  greyhounds are.


Swifty is a gentle retired greyhound who won 14 races at an average of 66km an hour. She loves pies and baguettes, cannoli and roast beef.  She likes to nick them when no-one is looking. She loves to spend the day snoozing on the sofa but always dances when her owners come home.


Jane Ostler is a painter and illustrator from the U.K.  She and her husband Paul dote on two Serengeti cats, Winnie and Teddy. She hopes that you have enjoyed this book and by doing so, have helped dogs like Swifty find a new and happy home.
