They were a bit wary of adopting him in case he ate Giggsy the guinea fowl; but since Giggsy is no more, Owen has become a full member of the pack. Alain has looked into his racing history and it seems he’s something of a champion – under the name Alaskan Mist, he won loads of races and was Midlands Greyhound of the Year 2008.
When Pearl heard about this, she had a dramatic change of affections – Gorgeous George is history, and Owen Bowen is the new love of her life. Which is really annoying, because she never used to give O-Bo the time of day, apart from growling at him whenever he invaded her space.
This isn’t just the green-eyed monster talking – I liked O-Bo long before he was a sporting star. I liked O-Bo for himself, and I’m pretty sure he liked me back.
