Happy Birthday Cate! Born to Flying Madam and Kiowa Sweet Trey on December 10th, 2003, Cate is 13 today!
It was a sad day at our home in Washington DC, just a short time after a gut wrenching loss, that Jerrie of The Greyhound Alliance in Chicago called us. Jerrie said they had a 7 year old girl, Cate, who needed a home. After being at the track all of her life, The Greyhound Alliance was hoping to find Cate a family who was open to a senior with a yard. That was us.
But we were still a pretty sad family. Jerrie said: "If we could find it in our hearts to give Cate a home, she would give us the peace and love we needed." We packed the car, loaded up our big boy greyhound, FourWheels, and drove from Washington DC to Chicago that day. We picked up Cate the next day, and started driving home. Jerrie was right. And we are grateful everyday to Jerrie and Rich of The Greyhound Alliance for trusting us with Cate. She took care of all of us and made FourWheels smile everyday.
Cate is a gracious, beautiful and confident girl. She is a constant source of friendship, love, and strength.
Happy Birthday, Cate. You are very loved.
