Leo: A Greyhound’s Tale … actually “Back by popular demand!”
Leo: A Greyhound's Tale … actually "Back by popular demand!"
by Cindy Victor “Leo, who goes by an alias because he’s worried that his super canine abilities (endowed with the ability to speak) will lead to his being the subject of scientific research, was not the fastest hound at the track, sending him to an early retirement. . . . (When adopted by the) famous Hollywood couple Douglas Drake and Amaranth Drueten, . . . Leo realizes they are not looking for a loving companion, but an accessory for photo shoots. Initially, he is not disappointed with the prospect of a celebrity life spent on satin pillows, although both Douglas and Amaranth are shallow and uncaring. . . . While this book is a light-hearted, comical fictional account, it teaches us the truth that it is not material things but courage, loyalty, and love that make life worth living. . . . I hope Leo will return with more tales to tell. I will never look at (my greyhounds) quite the same, now that I’ve met Leo.”
