Topaz and the Spellmann's recently-deceased first greyhound, Hampton.
Greyhounds have a long and storied history: the Egyptians worshiped them and people equated them with high social status in old England. Today, they are still bred as racing and hunting dogs, but once retired, their futures are as gray as their sleek coats. Lauren Hodges introduces us to Greyhound Welfare, a foster-home organization that works to place dogs in loving homes in the D.C. region.
