My Sighthounds ... and Me

My Friend “Ricky”

Since my childhood I always had wished a dog. Now this dream should become reality! So I wanted a dog for my Teacher's Exam that I passed sucessfully. Therefore at the beginning of the summer holidays 1971, I fetched my sweet, little “Exam Gift”, that was already five months old, from the Breeders, Mr. and Mrs. Hartmut and Helene Drake living in Mönchengladbach. I was really more than happy!
