Our poor greys weren't successful racers. Bella was zero for 9 races (but came in second one time). Darlene had a nonexistent record. Consequently they were cast off, but thankfully they were rescued by good groups of volunteers who kept them til we adopted them.

God bless the rescue folk and kudos to Pedigree pet food for sponsoring ads promoting adoption of shelter pets.
