Dreamy Draw is a section of highway in the Arizona desert linking Phoenix and Scotsdale. To pass through this extraordinary place, rich in history color and fauna, is to experience the strength and beauty of nature surviving within the concrete and technology of humanity. It is particularly breathtaking at sunset.

“Pan” finished her AKC bench title at 18 months, with three 5-point majors, under such diverse opinions as Carol Curry, Connie Brunkow, Shelley Hennessey, and John Reeve-Newson. The latter awarded her a Group 4 from the BBE class.
We want to express our gratitude to Lisa Buzzell for her talented presentation of Pan to two of her majors, and her expert care and handling of many of our dogs at shows and field events.

WHIPPET NEWS ANNUAL EDITOR
The American Whippet Club
1997 has been a “growing” year for the AWC. In April, at our 11th National Specialty, we had the largest entry ever — 618 whippets with a total entry of 930! Our Annual meeting was well attended, with good dialogue, and for the year we welcomed forty-six new members to the ranks.
Highlights of the year include:
• First Versatility Awards
• Two new Lifetime Achievement Awards Bo Bengston and Barbara Koch
• A National Obedience Chairman Shelley Hennessy
• A Code of Ethics
• Creation of the Whippet Health Foundation
I feel the establishment of the Health Foundation is one of our club’s most important undertakings. The purpose of the Foundation is to identify significant health problems in our breed and provide funding for the necessary research to eradicate those problems.
We have been fortunate to have a reasonably healthy breed and it is up to us to see that this remains so.

Tommy’s 1997 MAJOR accomplishments:
Thank you, judges, for making 1997 such a memorable year for us.
Mr. T will now focus on following in his dad’s footsteps on the coursing field. He will also make occasional appearances in the show ring at selected specialties, as well as trying his paw at obedience and agility.
(Ch. Cyrano’s Perfect Stranger x Ch. Cyrano’s Delta Dawn (Top Ten Whippets - 2 yrs))
Like her dam before her, Chorus Girl has “it” and she flaunts it. She thanks Grace Brewin and Gloria Mitchum Geringer for some of her nice wins. A Breed winner from the classes, she completed her title at the Chicago Christmas cluster with a 4 point major. She exhibits the true quality of our 125 champions to date.
We have an exciting spring litter planned, serious inquiries only. Note: our dogs are smart as well as beautiful“Cyrano” is the breeder of #3 and #6 top obedience whippets in the country - Cyrano’s Flying Aerie and Cyrano’s Little Red Hen!
THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR QUALITY.
Don’t stand by my grave and weep, for I’m not there, I do not sleep
When you awaken in morning’s hush, I am the swift uplifting rush

We are so proud of our new champion.
Our sincerest thanks to the following judges:
Elizabeth S. Smith
“Devon” is still looking for that increasingly annoying last major.
So we will wait for the outdoor shows this summer (where things are more interesting)
D U N B E R R Y
When Donna Lynch told me last winter that she’d bred her Teacher’s Pet, always one of my favorites, to her wonderful “Stinger”, I was envious. When she told me the result was a litter of irish-marked fawns (don’t ask me how!), I was positively green. And when I saw “Rose”, I was in love. What a wonderful little girl — from her big dark eyes, to her very correct front, to her very sound rear, and every fawn bit of her in between. And, yes, she can move too. Best of all is the most wonderful “has-no-enemies-watch-out-world-here-I-come” temperament.
Rose and her sister traded class placements for four days at their first shows, the huge MidWest Specialty weekend, with their brother going WD at the Specialty. Rose’s first points were a major under Dr. Greathouse at Central Ohio Kennel Club. She was Best In Sweeps and RWB at the Medina Kennel Club AWC Supported Entry. We are looking forward to lots of fun with Rose this summer. Thank you Donna, for this bright, beautiful bitch.
