From Vetstreet's Kim Campbell Thornton:

"Go Dog, Go" was the title of a famous children’s book penned more than 50 years ago by P.D. Eastman, but it is also what we say when we see some of these dogs take off running. Greyhounds, Vizslas and Jack Russells are just some of the types of dogs that leave the rest of the pack in the dust.
