It is so empty and quiet. My best friend is gone. There are no words.
We had 12 wonderful years together. Thanks for everything, wonderful "Nellie"!
Thank you Siw and Bj°rnar for letting "Nellie's" beloved daughter "Ofelia" come and stay with us.
She reminds me so much of her mother, and it makes life a bit easier for me, Peter and "Tessan".

Our beautiful Nellie is a living miracle. She is the result of an insemination with frozen semen, imported from the U.S.. "Over there" lived the handsome black Greyhound SBIS Eng Am Ch Hubbestad Double Magic, JC and I had my eyes set on him for "Cilla" . . .

"Nellie" is my favourite - if you are allowed to have one - her temperament, her type and lines - she is everything I love in a Greyhund and I am extremely grateful for the time we get to spend together. She is still as beautiful at 10 years old as she was as a young puppy. The only problem is that she is too fond of her food and has grown a bit fat in her old days . . . so there is hope for all those people saying that they have anorectic Greyhounds. My problem is that my Greyhounds are too happy about their food! Thank goodness for that!

Nellie was an exceptionally beautiful puppy. She was Best Puppy In Show at an International Swedish Kennel Club Show at 7 months of age and Second Best Puppy In Show at a National Swedish Kennel Club Show at 8 months of age. (photos above)

At Helsinki Sighthound Club Show in July 1999 she was BOS (winning the CC making her Finnish and Nordic champion) under judge Noreen Harris from Australia. (photo)
The next day she was 2:nd Best Bitch under judge Espen Engh, Jet's Greyhounds, Norway. (Half brother Norton went BOS!) Not too bad for their first visit in Finland!

Although Nellie has not been shown much she is a Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish and Nordic champion.

"Nellie" is the dam of one litter of 2 male and 2 female pups, born in May 2002, by Sobers Zacchary. Unfortunately that is her only litter.
More about the litter, on the page titled "Greyhound litters" (The Miracle-litter). (The pups are 17 days in the photo.)

"Nellie" has always been extremely fond of pups - just like her mum "Cilla" and when half sister "Tessan" - S Ch Another Story Tess Durbeyfield had blood in her milk, when her singleton puppy was 7 weeks old, "Nellie" gladly stepped in and took over, both as mum and buddy. It was a bit rough for her age, being almost 10 years old, but she loved it. Poor "Tessan" had to stay at Yvonne's mother until she was well again. But "Mille" had a blast!
