Georgann and Tootsie
RACER IN TRAINING:
For Tootsie - "T-R-O-U-B-L-E" by Travis Tritt
GEORGANN: Tootsie is one wild child! This crazy little Boston Terrier showed up in Donnie Hughes' front yard in the fall of '96, a few months before he and I met. She was scrawny and had obviously been a stray for quite a while, so Donnie took her in, gave her a bath, a good meal and she was home to stay.
We have no idea how old she Tootsie is - at least 5, maybe 7 or 8 years old. She loves to get that mini ball out of the flyball box and if we can ever convince her that it's really better go over all of the jumps on the way back from the box, she'll make a super little height dog! A self-winding little dog (she likes to spin in place when she's excited), this little girl is one hyper Boston!
She is a great sister to all the rescue foster border collies that go through the Hughes household and she keeps everyone in line. Look for her to, hopefully, run in a tournament within the next year! Dustin Hoffman ain't got nuthin' on THIS Tootsie's personality!
