Nicola Adams UK Olympic Boxing Gold Medal hopeful had to leave her dog a Doberman named Dexter at a boarding kennel while she is at the Olympics. But he is such a part of her life that she didn’t want him to miss her matches so she paid extra for him to have access to a TV so he could watch it all. Dexter has been at her side through all of her training leading up to the Olympics and she felt it only right that he be allowed to continue to follow along during her push for the Gold. Her last match is being fought right now to determine if she will take home a Gold or Silver Medal in the 2012 London Olympics.
Sheli Dobbie, manager at the boarding facility where Dexter has been staying had this to say:
“All our TVs are secured in a safe compartment within our boarding apartments and it’s not uncommon for some of our customers to request a TV for their dog. However, this will certainly be a first where the dog can watch their owner – especially in the Olympics – so I’m sure Dexter will be excited.
Actually the entire staff at the boarding facility will be watching right along with Dexter to see if this dog will have a mom who brought home an Olympic Gold Medal. The staff is really excited to have Dexter boarding with them and are cheering on his mom right along with him.
Adams began boxing at the age of 12 in a gym in Leeds, and had her first bout at 13. Her mom did aerobics at a gym in Leeds that had an after-school boxing class where all her friends from school went so she decided to check things out. Right from the start the coach there said she was a natural and asked her if she would like to participate in competitions. Whether or not Adam’s brings home a Gold or Silver her dog Dexter will greet her with lots of kisses and excitement.
