DOG CALENDAR ENTRY


Georgia,Bluetick Coonhound Dobermann mix
Sandi and Kevin Rapillo
My Dad is a drummer and he was playing a benefit for the "Bobby Cox Paws Because ... They Are Worth Saving Fundraising" in Atlanta. As he was walking around he found me in a little red wagon and called Mom in Nashville and said he fell in love and could he bring me home...

Well, two years later I've come a long way from that parking lot in Atlanta that someone left me and my twelve brothers and sisters (who all found forever homes too!) I had mange, people thought I was getting cute white spots on my black coat...not so cute in January.

I took my first people vacation to Ponder Cove and had a great time, Martha and Gary made me feel really welcome, and my Mom and Dad met a couple from Nashville that they are now good friends with!

I take Agility, Rally and my latest class is Freestyle Dancing! It's a funny class because there is a Great Dane, Coonhound, Beagle, Basset Hound and of course the show off—a Poodle. You should see the Great Dane trying to go through her owners legs! We all have a big laugh because none of us (except the poodle) are very good...

But my favorite thing in the world is to wrap my paws around your neck and give you a big hug and if there is a treat involved, I'll even throw in a big kiss!

Georgia (great name...) looks like a Rock Star (maybe she takes after her father...).

I think a Bluetick Coonhound is the perfect dog to represent a Carolina Mountain Retreat like Ponder Cove! Put her on the cover!!!

Georgia was a regular attendee at a series of fundraisers we had for an animal non-profit here, and she was huge hit. All the other dogs loved her, the kids loved her, she even made friends with a cat! What a fun and friendly dog!
