W (Sublime) is like his racing name: simply Sublime! He is unique among greyhounds by his status as a singleton, as only children are defined. This handsome cow dog, as black and white greyhounds are known, ran 14 races with one win, two places and one show. W is a big boy, but be assured he will curl up in a tight little ball on a nice comfy dog bed. If you take this fine boy home, you’ll rate your action a W, as in win, because you brought such a fine boy into your family!
