The Revelation!

I'd like to introduce you all to Frankie and Beryl's new .......... foster cousin;-)  Her name is Bess (Cawbourne Bess) and for a change she isn't black and she sure is purty!
Smiling Bess
Like Beryl, Bess is Australian born.  She had 63 races before retiring in April to have a litter and is now really looking forward to becoming someone's much loved family member.  I don't think it will be long before she is snapped up:-)

Fatima picked her up yesterday from the GAP kennels and we met up at the park a few hours later.  She got introduced to our little friend, Ted
With Louie supervising.
She thought he was very cute but not as much fun as Frankie who she thinks is the best thing since sliced bread ... but all the Greyhounds think that, lol.
Sharing Frankie with Lucy
Where Frankie goes Bess follows
Louie is making sure the girls don't have too much fun!
Bess is so ripped!  She will be 5 early next year and she looks like she's been doing weight pulling training since she was a baby!  She's got massive shoulders and haunches. 

She had a run around in the velodrome, which is fully fenced, and had a great time playing and racing!
Look out Lucy!

That was so much fun:-)
Bess went back on the lead when we left the velodrome and when we got back to the park the girls and Frankie had their usual tear around

Frankie, Lucy, Cilla
Piggy - I mean,  Frankie in the middle of his harem
Bess seems to love water, she just gets in the river and stands there

Water baby
Fatima brought Bess and a gourmet lunch (thanks Fatima!) around to my place today and Bess just sauntered in and blended in.  No dramas.  I took some neat video of her playing with Frankie and Beryl and just generally letting off steam in my back yard but I haven't had time to play with it yet:-)  I think she could have happily stayed at my place .... and if I didn't have Beryl, hmmm, she probably would have, lol. 
I think Bess approves of my backyard!
So there you go:-)  I thought you might enjoy seeing this little girl, she's pretty impressive.

And Happy Halloween!  I don't have any cute photos of Greyhounds with pumpkins as we don't get into the pumpkin thing at Halloween in New Zealand.  It's only fairly recently that Trick and Treating began and I had a whole 2 lots of kids knock at my door tonight.  Silly me had forgotten what day it was and didn't have a thing to give them:-(

Bess is gorgeous! I don't think she's going to be a foster for long. *sigh* Have I mentioned how I love the white dogs?

Bess is just lovely. She has such an expressive face. It looks like they are all bonding very well.
