When Patrick saves a litter of greyhound puppies he pleads with his parents: couldn’t he just keep one of them? Patrick christens his puppy Best Mate, and that’s what he becomes. Patrick’s favourite thing is to watch Best Mate running at full stretch on the heath. Until one day Best Mate is kidnapped and begins a new life as a champion race dog. Suzie, the greyhound trainer’s step-daughter, loves Best Mate. But what will happen when he can’t run any more?
