First, a brief history of our most cherished family members.
|Olivia was Mommie's girl|
In 1996 we brought home our second dog. The first whippet was Glynis Cyfie Bryn. Glynis was the call name. Cyfie Bryn is the name of our favorite bed-and-breakfast farm house in Wales.
|Glynis could outrun snowmobiles|
|Olivia and Glynis got along very well|
In 2000 brought home a human puppy. The dogs protected him. Seriously. You could not approach the baby without first passing Dog Security.

Olivia passed away far too early (10 years old) in 2001. We waited until 2004 to get a second dog. The second whippet is Northwind’s Pont Robert. Call name is Pont. Northwind is the breeder line. Pont Robert is the name of the small town near Cyfie Bryn Farm. Pont means ‘bridge’ in Welsh so Pont was our bridge back to Olivia.

|Our Frisbee dogs|
Pont has been lonely after the death of Glynis. So it is time for another. This dog is Northwind’s River Song. Call name will be River. River Song is the wife of Doctor Who in the British sci-fi series. So we stay British themed. And Doctor Who and River Song are both capable of ‘regeneration’ so River will be the regeneration of Glynis.

She is adapting well.
