A Real Charmer...a Greyhound Question
18 October 2020 | by bmccarthy-41135See all my reviews

A real charmer. Petula was lovely..still is. It was great to here her sing! You knew how the film would end as far as the love interests long before the end, but I had no problem with that. I do have about a question about the greyhounds in the film. I found it odd that the two dogs, never wagged their tails. Greyhounds do have tail issues. They get, "Happy tail syndrome"...apparently their wag is so frisky it can knock things over and they can possibly injure their tails causing skin tears or fractured tail tips...OUCH! I wonder in the film if they bound their tails somehow or were their 'all the time tail between the legs' just a sign of nervous pups. Anyone? Fun film.
