Desi is a 6 year girl who had a fairly long racing career, then retired to have some puppies. With that behind her, she is applying to be most adored pet by her forever home. Desi does OK with small dogs, but she is not cat tolerant. She would be a good only dog.

I was the first doggie from the May farm haul to have no puppies surgery! That means I'm first in line for a forever home...well, the first from this group. I think they selected me because I ran the most races, 135!

I was six years old on May 1 so I'm ready to trade my track shoes for a sofa. Ms. Wanda describes me as calm, easy and happy, so she knows me already.

I'm really looking forward to living in my first house and learning leisure skills. I may take up bocce ball or mahjong. If you'd like a "super lovable" companion, you should totally adopt me. I used quote thingies because that is a direct quote.

Oh...maybe I should write a book!

I Think I'll Take a Nap and Consider My Options,
