A Greyhound Story
Lacey Blue, the greyhound, is so small, Mama calls her Little One. What Lacey lacks in size, however, she more than makes up for with her intelligence and heart. After a short but successful racing career that ends dramatically, she begins a series of adventures with various owners that will push her to the very limits. Along the way, Lacey makes many friends and a few enemies. There are many greyhounds, dogs, several retired thoroughbreds, and a cat or two in this story.

When you have to earn your supper by being fast and tough however, being the smallest dog at the track is no joke. Lacey must rely on her own wits and strength as well as the lessons she learned from Mama.
