Pets Named After Famous Racers, Part 56: Nicky The Dog

Nicky The Dog.

Bob Dickey sent in this photo of Nicky, with a note:

"Anna and I adopted Nicky just before Christmas in 2005 from the Parker County Animal Shelter. Our vet guesstimated that she was around five at the time.

"She joined our two cats, Trixie-The-Terrorist Cat and Flower Pot Frankie. Since then we've adopted yet another cat, an 'unadoptable' senior named Sam-I-Am and a long-haired dachshund named Boo.

"Yes, it is a menagerie but we wouldn't have it any other way.

"We live in the small town of Willow Park, about 20 minutes west of Fort Worth.

"Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!"
