I am getting a New Dog for my Mom

When I was growing up as a little girl in New Jersey we had a dog that was rare. It was called a Borzoi or Russian Wolfhound. They are in the hound group of dogs and are really tall and skinny dogs. She was almost all white and had brown spots. Her name was "Baby" and she had one brown eye and one blue eye. My mom was disapointed that she couldn't breed her or show her because of that eye defect. But my mom is 80 now and I am bringing her home from the nursing home soon and I want her to have the dog she loved. They cost alot of money, but a friend of mine has said that they were gonna get the dog for me for her for Christmas. She painted her "Baby" in a oil painting that is how much she loved that silly dog. That dogs name even got my dad in trouble one night. One night at midnight the dog got loose and my dad had to run down the road calling "Come home Baby, please come Baby." Be a good Girl and Come Home." You know we Love you Baby, Come Home" My dad was the joke of the neighborhood for months after that. Never ever name your dog Baby or Honey is what my dad told his friends after that night!!! I gotta get her another dog cause of all the great memories.
