I used to own a greyhound. Well, a bunch of us did actually. It was a yuppy post university indulgence organized by one of the West End wide boys I worked with in my early stockbroking days. He had picked out an Ad in the Greyhound Star for a ‘Sales Trial’ at the Wimbledon Dogs, a dodgy little affair where they run greyhounds around the track in twos and threes and then auction them off to ill informed syndicates like ours.
