Mama dog makes 4

We had a call from the adoption group recently that a kennel was releasing a few brood dogs and one held a special place in their heart. So we agreed to bring her up and I said we'd "foster" her. 
She came from the race kennel that we actually toured while at the track in Birmingham which was a neat link as well. 
Her race name is CTW Powder Base. She raced until she was 3 1/2 and then had 4 litters (25) of pups. The most recent just started racing but her first litter still has some very successful racers! 
She arrived and moved right in to my heart.
So she's here to stay.
 And I couldn't think of a more fitting name than the Lady of Grantham herself, Cora.  I am a big Downton Abbey fan so this just seems to fit.

So meet our newest (and last for a while) addition: Cora
She reminds me of Dana a lot..not in her personality so much but in her mannerisms and stances.
 She will be 9 on February 20th
 She found the couch quickly and loves her spot.
 She's super sweet, loving and does not act 9 (she currently chasing Roxi around the house with a stuffie).  I've been talking to her owner/trainer via email and hopefully JRG can get her babies as they retire to adopt out.  And I've asked for some photos of her with her babies.
