I loved this book. At times I wished I could scoop Merit up into my lap and give him a kiss on his nose! I particularily liked how the author touched on the relationships between Merit and the dogs that came into his life, and at the same time we also learned about Greyhound racing! This book is an easy read and it is a lighthearted, happy & realistic look into the life of a racing Greyhound. I truely liked it!
