Retired Greyhound's

The greatest thing I've ever known
Someone came and took me home
I'm away from the track hope I never go back
Like a nightmare in my memory
My future looked black
Then I was adopted and my life was spared
I thank God every day that someone cared
This must be heaven I'm a winner this time
Got a ball a bone and a bed that's all mine
I'm crazy about my family
Devoted you might say
Like a shadow beside them
You bet I want to stay
I'm special too they call me sweetheart
They hug me and kiss me and tell me I'm smart
Even dreams are more peaceful no stress no strife
Now I run for fun and not for my life.

When I was young, my grandparents had a retired greyhound named Tesse. Sweetest dog you could ever meet.
