Ciara's webpage

On November 16 at 4:30pm, Kathy and I adopted our new greyhound 'Ciara' (pronounced Key' ra).
Ciara is an Irish name meaning "dark-haired beauty", in honour of Kathy's Irish father.

Ciara is a rescue Greyhound brought to use by the Greyhound Rescue Foundation of Tennessee.
She was born on May 23, 2012 and named Oaks Derby Queen by Mick Hymes at Black Oak Kennel in Arkansas.
Her father is Switzler Jammin (2006) from Galena (Grand Sire) and Switzler Roxcee (Grand Dam).
Her mother is Oaks Gem Brandy (2009) from Dodgem By Design (Grand Sire) and Meany Miney Mo (Grand Dam).
Here is a link to her Pedigree webpage on greyhound-data.com
