New Addition

We adopted Gambling Nikki tonight. She's the sweetest little lady. She's going to win any kissing contest we enter her in. We found out she was the trainer's favorite hound in his kennel at JCKC. Waggly tail, smiling face, and kissing, kissing, kissing all the time. She's one very happy hound!

This is our first experience with a hound from the track. Our 3 previous adoptions were all bounced hounds. Nikki's as fresh as new fallen snow. Did I mention she tried to do the 10 front steps on her front legs only. It was the funniest sight! She did manage to put one rear foot down for just an instance on the way down.

Her littermate, Husker Hercules, was adopted 2 weeks ago by another SEGA member. We'll have to see if they have any familial feelings for each other at the Meeting at the Farm next week!

Congratulations!!! The ones straight from the track are the most entertaining, when they are learning everything brand new!
