    "The Greyhound" is short for "The Greyhound bus".

    I don't know any breed of dog that wrestles. Dogs fight.

    Strange. I watched dogs wrestle on TV, in dog wrestling competitions. Was I...mistaken?

    'Wrestle' is not confined to men only. I often wrestle with my own conscience...

    I've never heard the term "dog wrestling", that's all. Where did you hear it?
