Proud Racer Series

Proud Racer, Nancy’s first series – published more than a decade ago – follows the lives of her ‘Proud Racers,’ her retired racing greyhounds, told in their own words.


The entire first set of books in the Proud Racer series (One Greyhound’s Journey, A Tail of Two Brothers, Blind Faith, and Half Crazy) are now together in one volume: The Complete Proud Racer! As told from the perspectives of the greyhounds, follow Hunk as he leaves his athletic career behind and becomes a pet in One Greyhound’s Journey and A Tail of Two Brothers…will he be reunited with his littermate Marky? In Blind Faith, meet Shotgun Liz, a feisty old greyhound lady whose faith leads her not only to a new home with new friends but possibly back to the old friends from home. Finally, in Half Crazy, follow the newest pack member, Daisy, as she learns the ropes at Home…with the help of a former pack member turned angel. This series is sure to delight both those who share their lives with greyhounds and those who don’t…yet.


In the last installment in the Proud Racer series, An American Greyhound in Yorkshire, Daisy shares with readers her experiences while living in Yorkshire, England. Follow her as she explores everywhere from Keighley to Whitby to Scotland, gets rained on in Wales, meets cheeky pigeons, is hailed a superstar by English greyhounds, and generally finds her way in her new homeland. Through “An American Greyhound in Yorkshire,” author Nancy Dunne has recounted her own experiences as an expatriated American through the eyes of her beloved greyhound, Daisy. In the tradition of the other volumes in the Proud Racer series, this book views the world through the eyes of Daisy, a retired racing greyhound turned expat American pet.
