All proceeds from the Diary of a Dog are assigned to the greyhound re-homing and rescue industry, which is primarily supported by voluntary funds. Celia Cross Greyhound Rescue and The Retired Greyhound Trust.

Annually, over 10,000 greyhounds retire from racing in the UK, and of those, only around 6-8,000 are re-homed.

In the words of Bandit’s person, Robert Powell, “If this book helps one greyhound to find a new home, it will have done some good.”


The Diary of a Dog book, written by the retired greyhound, Bandit, with some help from his person no doubt, is a funny, poignant, and very moving account of his first months in a domestic home. A must-read book.” Andi, London Dog Forum

This is the hilarious, day-to-day diary of Bandit, a four year old retired greyhound who lived at the Celia Cross Greyhound Rescue Centre until he was adopted by Bertie and taken home to live with lurcher Willow. They have a whale of a time. Bandit, who thinks he’s very handsome, is particularly naughty and loves shredding bog rolls and nicking pigs’ ears from the vet’s.Horse & Rider

Full of humour with an insight into the nature of greyhounds from their joy of running to their devotion to the duvet. Ideal for the older reader.Homer Magazine
