Izzy didn’t choose to be a mother. It was her final job as a racing greyhound to pass on her genes to another generation of racers. One of those puppies, Bella, has been re-homed and I can see from the racing register that four other puppies are now racers…I so hope they are safe and healthy.
Izzy deserved to have a Mother’s Day. She had breakfast in bed with buttermilk pancakes and liver/pumpkin gravy.
Tonight she is playing with her newest toy – a rubber chicken.
Happy Mother’s Day, Izzy!
