So that's how I slept until Nicky got up later and wanted to go outside and potty. And Mom got up and let all the boy dogs outside, but I stayed in bed, and in fact I moved to the middle of the dog bed. And then when Nicky came back, I growled at him and told him to go sleep on one of the other beds. Which he did, and without talking back or anything.
Anyway, I asked Nick if he wanted to write the entire history of his life in a blog entry, but he said he was kind of too shy to do that, but maybe he would write an entry later sometime. He said he didn't mind if I wrote about him in my blog, though, so I will tell you everything we know about him from his past records that we got from REGAP.
Nicky was born in Kansas on July 20, 2004, and his registered name is PB's Dodgedabone. I think this is a very strange name because it sounds like someone was throwing bones at Nick, and he had to dodge them. But when you look at Nick's sire's name, you see that it was Dodgem by Design, and his dam was named Runtodabone. And if you kind of mix those names together, you could maybe come up with Dodgedabone. But while I am at it, I will also say that Runtodabone is kind of an icky name because it sounds like you are going to run so hard and so far that all your skin wears away down to the bone.
Anyway, like I said, Nicky ran in four races, but these were not real races where people could bet on the dogs and win money. These were "schooling" races, which we think must be just for training. We don't know how many dogs were in each race, but in the first one, Nicky came in 4th, and the comments were "poor effort, inside." Then in the second race, he was 5th, and the comments were "never rallied, inside." In the 3rd race he was also 5th, and it says "chased field, mid." Then in the last race, where he finished 5th again, he was "bumped early, mid."
Whew! That was a pretty long history, so it's no wonder that Nicky made me write it instead of writing it himself. Anyway, I am just going to tell you a couple of things about greyhounds, and then I am going to quit writing.
