Reva became a member of the Flassig family of Edwardsburg, MI (formerly Worth, IL) on March 23, 2006. About her first night at home, new Mom Alice wrote:
"Reva is so gentle. She is following all over. I'm been showing her every
room in the house. It will take a little time for her to adjust but I think
she is going to be fine with everyone. I just love her to pieces already."
Reva came from ReJoyce's first Whippet litter, born
March 6, 2003, bred by Melody Joyce and Barbara
Wheat. She went BOW (judge George Heitzman)
at her first show at six months and one week of age. One month later, she
received a BOB from judge Sari Brewster Tietjen.
But, Reva hated to show... so in 2006, Reva earned herself a Best Of Home with Jim, Alice, and the rest of her new family:

... and Nicky
(He's one VERY AMERICAN Eskimo Dog, by golly!)
From the looks of her new giant-sized private "den" AND her pretty new Palm
Sunday t-shirt, it looks like Reva fits right in very well with her new
Tina especially thinks Reva is
a nifty new play-toy:
Reva even gets to use their computer!! Here's what she wrote on 03-24-06:
- Hi Mom and Dad:
I am doing better today. I've been a very good girl and I hope to see
everyone soon. I have a real nice bed with a big round pillow. I'm very
comfortable. Don't worry I still love you. I won't forget you. I know
you miss me and I miss you too. I'm still adjusting, but everyday I'm
getting a little more and more relaxed with my new surroundings.
My new playmates are starting to calm down with me.
I know Daddy was really sad when I had to go. I saw the sad look on
his face. I promise you I will be back to visit.
Well with the 5 of us, I have to go, someone has to go potty. There
will be new photos of me so just watch for the email box.
(We'll always love you too, "Baby Girl," and
we are SO HAPPY that you found yourself such a wonderful new Mommy and Daddy!)
