Originally bred as hunting dogs, these majestic animals are constant companions in my life and have been associated with royalty, warriors and noblemen for centuries.
Greek warrior Alexander the Great (356-323 BC) used greyhounds during his military campaigns. One faithful battle, his favourite greyhound Peritas fought a war elephant. Alexander was so impressed at the faithfulness and bravery of Peritas that he ordered a state funeral for his friend, named a city after him and had a statue erected in his honour in the city square.
