    Hello to some old friends and hopefully many new ones.

    I'm Roxy and I am a slave to my Whippet crew plus one Collie.

    Dixie is my tricolor rough collie. She is a total goofball and my canine counterpart. I just love her to death. She is often referred to as Ditzy and the name fits her.

    Spencer is my first show dog and my heart and soul. I live for this dog. He, imo, is the most gorgeous, wonderful, perfect dog alive. He is awesome. Together, in limited showing, we managed four akc points including a two pointer with a BOB. In April, he is going to the American Whippet Club National and getting a whole heap of health testing done.

    Sprout is my first bred by puppy. Her dam was attacked and killed by a lose dog that broke into our fenced yard. We were helpless to stop it and she felt she was protecting her litter, who was safe inside. My co-breeder/best friend and I hand raised the puppies from there on out. Sprout is also going to the national and showing off her stuff plus also getting her first round of health tests.

    I live with my cobreeder/bff who has several dogs also but those are my three. I am posting on my phone (sorry for typos) so can't post pictures but I uploaded them in my albums, which for some reason I can do from my phone.

    In the past, I lived where it was hard to get to racing and coursing. This summer, we will be much closer so I hope to go more.

    Thanks for the warm welcome, guys!

    Those on my facebook page, you are more than welcome to post a few of my pics here if you would like. I can't post them until I get a real internet connection and you know how long until that happens. Could new days and could be weeks. It would be appreciated.

    *wants Spencer*

    Dixie reminds me of one of my past dogs. I had a collie named Maeve that could have passed for her twin as far as that profile goes :)
