I already told Martin this in the GT chatroom...and I'm sooper dooper excited Smile

First, some back ground...

Cathie (wmlcml6 on GT) had a big ol' red fawn boy named Mojo and she was trying to get me to adopt him. But, I had my heart set on a white, half-sister of Sequoia's that races at the same track that Cathie has her kennel at. She'd done some legwork for me, letting the trainer there know that I was interested in the sister, but, since she's doing so dang well, it turns out that she'll be heading home to Oklahoma to be a broody when she's done racing.

So, Cathie knowing how much I wanted that big ol white girl...and, seeing as I cant have her... and with Cathie knowing how much I love my babydoll, she said, when she had this litter, that after Icee's done racing, that if I wanted her, that I could have her.

Soooooo, with that said...I'm kinda like a race dog owner by de facto Smile Kinda neat.. no expences but, all the thrills and enjoyment of watching this baby grow into a running machine Smile


edited to say that I tried posting her pics, but all I could see was red x's... there's pics of her on 2 different threads over on GT if anyone cares to see Smile

The little Ice Princess is adorable - I love her littermates too Flippy and Cowboy.

This is what I love about Noni being a brood momma. I LOVE to follow her offspring and plan on adopting one from her most recent litter. That will be a while, though, being they were only weaned this past July!

I think this might become a trend in adoption. As relationships between adoption people and racing people become more friendly we should begin to see a lot of this.

My genuine hope is that some day we get to the point that there are more people who want dogs than there are dogs to adopt. People would have to get on a waiting list or preadopt to get a dog. With breedings declining and adoptions on the rise perhaps we'll see it sooner than later.
