* The greyhound is one of the oldest breeds of dogs and believed to have originated in Egypt.

*Cleopatra was rumored to have given one to Ceasar as a gift.

*A law in England in 1016 forbid anyone but royalty from owning a greyhound

* The long elegant neck of the greyhound would be adorned with silver and jewelled collars by their royal friends.

There was just not enough room in Royal Dogs to put all of the amazing facts and dog breeds I researched. I even made a few drawing that did not end up in the book. I hope you enjoy!
