Hi folks,here is a wee update on the story of "The little runt needs a home" well as you's all know my mother adopted the little runt and brought her home exactly one year ago today, since then we have watched her grow and develop.

We decided to name our new arrival "Coco" as my brother decided on the name and kept drilling it into our heads until we became used to it lol.

Since getting Coco on 12th of november 2008 we didnt know what our little black handful was going to become but now i can happily say our little Coco weighs in at a very healthy 52Ibs, considering we thought that she would only turn out 26Ibs lol

Since Coco became part of the family exactly a year ago we can proudly say that the whole family couldnt live without her, she has been the best present we have recieved in all our years in the greyhound game

So here is a few snaps of our "Not So Little Runt" so you can all see her progress and how she has become a valued member off our family. Enjoy :D

Matthew she looks wonderful. However, the one picture in which she looks unhappy and confused is the last one.

Lovely news, and pics. She's been growing into her new name in fact, hasn't she? Now a truly elegant young lady - think Coco Chanel!

I just wanted to say not all race dogs are abused in any way whatsoever, just ask my dogs....and I'm sure many others. Dressing up on raceday for most is their fun, running is what they are bred to do..

We have 35 off our own Racing greyhounds and anyone that knows my mother knows that they are spolit and get whatever they want. I was only stating that Coco will never be raced on a track as she is our pet.

Well done Siobhan, Matthew and Luke,

Coco (the Little Runt) is just beautiful, I love picture 5 she is just the queen bee. I am sure she rules the roost at your home and the office at Lifford Track!

Remember to keep us all up to date with her antics, as I beleive she is a real wee rascal.

Florence
