    I do have a soft spot for greyhounds. Around 10,000 a year retire from racing, the vast majority looking for loving retirement homes. Being working dogs they do not do party tricks like other dogs. Well, that is until I met Nigel. Nigel is a magnificent black male greyhound, who has been with his owner from birth as a pet. That is, he has never raced. And he sits and gives a paw for a biscuit like any other dog. I have never known any sight hound act like that. A couple were staying in the village over fireworks weekend so their pair of greyhounds were not frightened by the noise. I was talking to them about Nigel and the lady said one of hers does the same!
