Louie has a new sister !

Wednesday, January 13, 2010

Yes, the inevitable has happened and Louie has fallen in love with one of our foster greyhounds (so did we btw!).
Her name is Lucy, and she is only a puppy, 1.5 years old. Louie has taken her under his wing from day one :-)
Initially we wanted to change her name as it was too similar to Louie's , but we found ourselves sticking with "Lucy" as she seems to know her name, and luckily her and Louie seem to be able to make a distinction between their names...

Lucy has never been raced (did not want to chase apparently, and also has a dropped gracillus muscle) but she is very fast, zooming around the rugby field and nearby park at top speed. Her father was Fashion Thief, mother was Petrina Bale. A lovely Brian Goldsack from Wanganui gave her to GAP programme.

Lucy is very small and skinny, just 24kg, so we need to put some weight on her. Other than this - she is very clever, has learned so many things (including recall !) .
She has been with us form 2 weeks now, and we have just officially adopted her! :-)

These are the pictures of her with Rachel, taken today, when Rachel invited her to come onto the couch for the first time. BTW- we will make this pink couch Lucy's (Louie has one too! :-)
