Report From Mrs. Wear About The A.W.C. Specialty Show

Due to circumstances beyond my control, I found it necessary to give up the chairmanship of the fall Specialty Show. Mr. Hostetter and Mr. Peters are working with Mrs. duPont on the matter of obtaining a judge for both the Whippets and Greyhounds and I understand that the date of Friday, September 9th has been sent to the A.

Information Please

Jack Stone, St. Louis, Mo., writes: From time to time I have noticed a mention of "Lurchers" in the News, usually by Mrs. Wendell Howell. Even tho they are a breed unrecognized by the A. K. C., I would like some information about them. I don't believe I have ever seen one and the only information I have been able to obtain about them was in Vesey-Fitzgerald's English Book, The Book of The Dog.


About The Cover

Hilary Coulter, Huntington, N. Y., writes: I am eleven years old. We get the Whippet News as we own a Whippet, "Snow White Star of Clintagh". She had a litter of pups 3 years ago. We kept one but it was run over and killed last summer. I like to draw "Snow White" in her favorite chair. Could you use my drawing of her for a cover of the News? as I notice you have a Whippet always on the cover.

Thank you Hilary Coulter for your very nice cover design.

(Unfortunately some of the spontaneity of the original drawing was lost in transferring the drawing to the stencil for mimeographing. Mimeograph art work is limited. We are both art school graduates and with mimeographing experience we feel qualified to evaluate art work suitable for mimeographing for the Whippet News. - Mr. & Mrs. E. L. Jacobs)

WHIPPET RACING
INTERNATIONAL KENNEL CLUB SHOW
Louis Pegram

The third annual Open Whippet Races sponsored by the International Kennel Club, Chicago, Illinois, in cooperation with the American Whippet Club, again proved very decisively that the show Whippet has not lost even a little of his racing instinct and speed. Six of the first ten high point scorers in the finals were Whippets who are recognized as American Kennel Club show champions.

This year's champion racer was the English bred Whippet, Ch. Wingedfoot Dominic, owned by Mrs. Wendell T. Howell, San Francisco, California. Ch. Wingedfoot Dominic indicated at a very early age that he had all of the qualities of a top race dog. His tremendous early foot out of the starting box, plus his great courage, combine an almost unbeatable combination at a distance up to 200 yards. Going into the third and final heat, Dominic had won one heat and had finished second in the other, thus he needed a victory in the final race to be high point dog at the International Kennel Club Show for 1960.

In the final race Dominic immediately assumed the lead, causing the field to pack in behind him. This caused some bumping, but actually in no way greatly hampered the other Whippets in the race. Eyleland Peppermint Boy moved clear of the pack midway down the course and challenged strongly. This late move was not good enough and Dominic was a driving winner by approximately a length.

Eyleland Peppermint Boy is a big strong Whippet who last year won the puppy stakes at Chicago and clearly indicated he was a race dog of top quality. This year he had won both of his heats going into the finals and it was the feeling his chances of being high point scorer were excellent. Peppermint Boy does not have the early foot of Dominic, but finishes strongly and is a very dangerous dog over a distance of ground. In his second heat he came from last to win.

Ch. Whipoo 's Whimsy, C.D., owned by Mrs. Juanita Hopkins of Champaign, Illinois, finished in a tie with Ch. Whipoo's White Luster for third high point honors. Whimsy, one of the all time great racing Whippets, was the International Champion for 1958 and for 1959, never having met defeat in the Chicago area. This year he again won his first elimination heat by a very narrow margin, indicating that perhaps age was starting to dim his brilliant burst of speed. In his two following races he did not have the best of racing luck, but then, too, he did not have his blazing speed of the past two seasons. Whimsy was the sentimental favorite to repeat his championship with the many thousands of people who viewed the races.

The puppy races brought out enough starters to fill two races, but most of the races were extremely green and did not show to a particularly outstanding advantage.

The winner, Oberon of Briskways, owned by Mrs. William Field, Chicago, Illinois, ran consistently in all three heats and was the high point puppy. Second was Great Circle Xenia owned by Mrs. Wendell Howell. Xenia bolted the course in her second heat, but won her first and third heats, thus she received enough points to be placed second high scoring puppy.

There were a number of Whippets of particularly outstanding conformation who did not show to their best advantage. These dogs all showed very green and actually should improve greatly should they again be brought back for racing at the International Kennel Club Show next year.

This year, Donald Hostetter, President of the American Whippet Club, arrived in Chicago several days in advance of the International Kennel Club Show. He and Mr. William Ogilvie, representing the International Kennel Club, arranged a very excellent 165 yard dirt track protected by snow fence to keep back the large crowds who annually watch these exhibition amateur races. A loud speaker system was operated just in the track area and it was possible to explain all of the details of Whippet racing and this loud speaker system greatly helped in keeping the many spectators under control.

As has been the case in past years, Whippet racing at the International Kennel Club Show proved again to be a great crowd pleaser. It was noted that people were standing 5 or 6 deep at all points where vision was possible. Actually the crowd was so great in this one section of the amphitheater that it was not necessary to use the central loud speaker to bring the public from other portions of this tremendous building.

Mr. Donald Hostetter of Cobham, Virginia, and Mr. C. C. Fawcett of St. Louis acted as head judges during the three racing programs and were assisted from time to time by other outstanding dog personalities who were available when they were not actively exhibiting their dogs.

I was asked by several of the people racing Whippets for the first time, "What constitutes a fighter in a dog race?" It is any dog who turns his head from the lure, and in any way savages, bumps, or pushes one or more dogs in the race causing race interference. This should not be confused with bumping where racing dogs are fighting for racing room or position. This condition may hinder the chances of certain dogs due to poor racing luck, but if it is not intentional on the part of the dog, he should not be disqualified.

Other Whippets who raced and received points were: Adult Dogs - Barbara & Ralph Eyles' Ch. Great Circle Hester, 6 points; Barbara & Ralph Eyles' Eyleland Winter Wind, 6 points; Mr. & Mrs. Eugene L. Jacobs' Whipoo's Court Card, 6 points;

Carrol C. Bailey's Jo-Carr's Silver Dollar, 5 points; Carrel C. Bailey's Jo-Carr's Rustic Captain, 5 points; Mr. & Mrs. Eugene L. Jacobs' Whipoo's White Reflection, 4 points; Barbara & Josephine Steinberg's Traymatt Matchless Monica, 3 points; Mr. & Mrs. Eugene L. Jacobs' Smokey Leo, 3 points; Puppies - William Fields' Oberon of Briskways, 12 points; Mrs. Wendell T. Howell's Great Circle Xenia, 10 points; Barbara & Ralph Eyles' Eyleland Dorothy, 8 points; Barbara & Ralph Eyles' Eyleland Hepszibah , 4 points; Barbara & Ralph Eyles' Eyleland Abernathy, 4 points; Barbara & Ralph Eyles' Eyleland Ethelbert, 3 points;

Other Officials: Louis Pegram, Racing Secretary. Carrol C. Bailey, Starting Box Operator. E. B. Hopkins, Lure Machine Operator. C. Chase Arnold, In Charge of The Paddock. Louis Pegram & Eugene Jacobs on the Microphone.


Recently, the Whippet News received word that Katie deKorsak, Grand Rapids, Mich., fell and broke her hip. She is presently confined to a wheel chair, but hopes to be up and around soon. We are sorry to learn of her accident and hope she will recover soon. Looking forward to seeing her at the shows.


FROM ENGLAND

Mrs. R. Hodgson, Secretary, Northern Counties Whippet Club, writes: Whippets are becoming more and more popular over here. I did have a lovely entry at Manchester. Another pointer of the increasing popularity of our breed is the grand total of nearly 1500 registrations at the Kennel Club for 1959.

I am looking forward to receiving your News once again. Altho I have no racing news at all to send, I do enjoy reading about your racing and know all our members enjoyed the "Puget Sound Racing Group" article in our Year Book.

I did mean to send you the winners at Crufts before now, maybe you have already got them from Mrs. Evans (secretary of the National Whippet Assoc) who judged the Whippets there. However, here they are...the particulars along with the principal winners at our "Northern Classic", the Manchester Ch. Show where I had the honor of judging....

C.C. WINNERS AT CRUFTS HELD IN FEBRUARY:

Dog - Teighways Topflight, fawn & white. Breeder owner, Mr. F. Bannes. Sire Ch. Bellavista Barry, Dam Teighways Treacle Tart.

Bitch - Ch. Wingedfoot Claire-De-Lune, fawn & white. Breeder owner, Mr. C. H. D. Todd. Sire Ch. Wingedfoot Wild Goose, Dam Ch. Wingedfoot Hildegarde.

The Dog Best of Breed


C.C. WINNERS MANCHESTER HELD MARCH 17th:

Dog - Blik's Ringmore Bardolph, red-fawn little white. Breeder, Mrs. Standring. Owner, Miss Birrell. Sire Ch. Bellavista Barry. Dam Tweseldown Mimosa

Bitch-Teighways Tasmin, fawn & white. Breeder owner, Mr. F. Barnes. Sire Ch. Bellavista Barry. Dam Teighways Treacle Tart.

The Bitch Best of Breed

The following from Mrs. Hodgson's report on the winners at Manchester, the report taken from "Our Dogs": "I fully appreciated and enjoyed judging the 135 entries from 81 dogs....We had a crowded ringside and I feel the many newcomers to this grand breed would appreciate a bit of constructive criticism, and trust the following remarks will be taken in that spirit. We all know Whippets are not lap dogs and should be built for the work they are intended to do, bearing in mind the bit in our standard which asks for a definite arch over the loin which, in my opinion is the opposite to a prevalent fault in the breed-the cut-away back with too short couplings, accounting for the poor hind action and ground not being covered naturally, in most cases the poor dog having its back legs stretched unnaturally to make it cover the ground and succeeding only in spoiling outline and balance. A Whippet with a good back very rarely has bad hind action, discounting, of course, cow-hocks. Birrell's Blik's Ringmore Bardolph; I was very

pleased to award this dog his second C.C., he has all the essentials, he is balanced and not exaggerated in any way, a free sound mover Barnes’ Teighways Tasmin; C.C. and best of breed, this fawn and white completely captivated me, her clean cut outline, balance and sweep of quarters are all that can be desired combined with the sparkling lively temperament of the true Whippet, was beautifully presented".

Norman W, Ellis Report
March 26, 1960
Whippets in Fresno

Shortly before Christmas last, I came to Fresno, California from San Francisco. While in San Francisco I had become a slave to the never ending charm of the Whippet (under the auspices of Mrs. Wendell T. Howell). To avoid being lost and alone in Fresno I bought with me three Whippet puppies, for company and sport. The puppies came from Mrs. Howell 's Great Circle Kennel.

Great Circle 's Tosca, Star Gazer (Edith) and Antigone seem quite happy with their Fresno surroundings. I miss San Francisco! Great Circle Antigone is now the proud possession of Mr. Allen S. Bridges of Fresno. Antigone is the sole survival of the last litter of Great Circle Holiday. Although not up to size at the moment, Antigone will soon be there. She makes her dog show debut at the Sun Maid Kennel Club show in Fresno, April 9th.

The Sun Maid Club is holding handling classes prior to the show to better aquaint the novice handler with ring and showing techniques. Antigone was a great hit at the class today. She quite refused to do anything. Two noted professional handlers gave her a try, but she easily got the best of them: Her owner, Mr. Bridges, met with the only victory of the day by getting her to follow with slight resistance on the lead and he set her up beautifully. He had never been inside a show—type ring before:

Tosca caused a small sensation by showing polished ring manners and considerable brilliance. I was the most surprised as she did nothing but play "collapse me" when I tried stacking her at two months. Tosco will be travelling to the Kern County Kennel Club show in Bakersfield for the opportunity of showing under Miss F. Julia Shearer. Tosca will be with Monte and Patty Long of Oakland.

I have hopes of starting a Central California Whippet racing association within the year. Mrs, Howell and Mrs. Henderson, as well as the Longs, have offered to superintend and help launch this sporting enterprise.


Stoney Meadows Kennel Report Doris Wear

March 31, 1960

How disappointed we are to again have to miss coming to International. Each year we look forward to it, plan to attend and then it seems something comes up that prevents it. Last year it was sick dogs, but this year, thank fortune, there is a much happier reason — a wedding in the family — which both from a time and financial angle, precludes our being there. I will be looking forward with extra eagerness to this issue of the News to learn all about it:

Our litter born on Christmas Eve to Meander Chit Chat (Ch. Meander Kingfisher ex Ch. Happy Talk O 'Lazeland) by Ch. S. M. Red Fox (Ch. Meander Kingfisher ex Laguna Leonie) looks most promising at this time.

Laguna Leonie, this time bred to Ch. Meander Bob—White, has just produced a litter of eight, of which, at five days old, seven are surviving and apparently thriving!

Within the week, S. M. Icecapade (Ch. S. M. Marathon ex S. M. Snowbird) is expected to produce a litter that will probably number a dozen, judging from the looks of her, by Ch. Fleeting Falcon:

"Hope springs eternal and all that:


Nancy —Jane Jackson Report
March 30, 1960

I am very enthusiastic about the News and look forward to every issue....I am planning to breed my Stoney Meadows bitch as soon as she comes in season. It will be quite exciting to be a Whippet breeder, and to be showing dogs I've raised myself. My appreciation again for the excellent Whippet News!


White Acres Kennel Report
Pearl Baumgartner
April, 1960

The first three months of the new year has been good to us here at White Acres. We are starting our 8th year in exhibiting Whippets, and we have just finished our 9th champion, White Acres Sylvia, and in our 20 years of exhibiting Beagles we are the breeder of our 24th Beagle champion.

We have two new Whippet litters since our last report. Ch. White Acres Sea Shanty whelped five on December 11, sired by Ch. Greet Circle The Scot. These are a colorful lot, with two females, brindle, white markings, one male, brindle, white markings, one female, silver—fawn with white markings, and one male, golden fawn, white and black markings. They remind me so much like painted Indians that they will be named after Indian tribes, Cherokee, Chickasau, Chactaw, Chippewa, and Shawnee . Then on March 21, Ch. White Acres Snow Flurry whelped two males and three white bitches sired by Ch. Pennyworth Pilgrim Father.


Whipoo Kennels Report
Sibyl & Gene Jacobs
April, 1960

The great variation in the size of Whippets, which shows up sometimes even in one litter, is always a subject for discussion among Whippet breeders. We have been told that the same variation in size existed 20 years ago, with the same accusations that Whippets would soon be the size of Greyhounds. Anyone who has been close to a show type Greyhound is amazed at the size and will see that there can be no comparison between the Greyhound size and even the largest Whippets. Many of these Whippets could walk under a Greyhound.

We are very pleased with our litter whelped March 27, by Ch. Whipoo's Spattarib of Meander ex Ch. Whipoo's White Chiffon. There are 2 females and 4 males, and the colors came in two 's — 2 white, 2 fawn with white markings, and 2 blue—brindle and white.


Northern California Whippet Racing Association
Wendell T. Howell

On Saturday, March 12, Northern California Whippet racers net at Mrs. Robert B. Henderson's house in Hillsborough for the opening of the new race track. It was a day of heavy showers and intermittent rain, which in no way interfered with the enthusiasm of either people or dogs. The track is lovely, and Joe Garibaldi's machinery worked very efficiently for the opening day. Proceedings began with a set of races for eight dogs (results given below). Then we had a match race, a very good lunch, and after lunch worked out the puppies for an hour or so.

The track is measured exactly 200 yards with iron pipes in the ground to mark both start and finish. In order to fit on the lawn without undue destruction of trees and shrubbery, it contains a very slight dog leg to the left about midway. This has been ingeniously solved for the lure by setting a metal arm in the ground. The string goes through a yoke on top of this arm and when the skin hits it the whole thing snaps into the ground at once so the dogs can't possibly get cut on it. The electric motor for pulling the lure is set off to one side of the track so the operator has a view of start and finish. The string comes off the reel and goes first to the finish line where it passes through a series of pulleys (one on a palm tree) and into a box set in the ground. The box has a snap lid which shuts when the skin arrives. This eliminates quarrels over the skin. Perhaps one of the few improvements that can be made is to set this skin disappearing act a little further back from the finish line, as the people at the finish line seemed to think the dogs might be slowing up a little before the end of the race.

We had some very good judges for the opening day and there was absolutely no fighting. The judges were Afghan owners who ran their dogs well during part of the lunch hour. Earl Stites judged on the course, Jane Langdon and Marianna Burrows at the finish. Avis Axelsen kept time, and Betty Stites did a wonderful job keeping score. Evelyn Anderton managed the start and the boxes, and got every start off without a hitch. Joe Garibaldi ran his machine. We are all planning to take lessons from Joe in running this. The only time it was run by the writer for an Afghan race it was unintentionally put into reverse causing a horrible tangle.

The first drawn race was won by Little Alice, Meander Pilot second, owned by Patti Long, third to Andrew Delfino's Volo, fourth to the Long 's Phyllis Janson. The second drawn race was won by Wingedfoot Domenic, second to Jenny Henderson's Mad Hatter, third to The Scot, and fourth to the old lady Great Circle Bewitched.

Then followed the low point race, won by The Scot, second Bewitched, third to Phyllis and fourth to Volo.

The high point race was won by Wingedfoot Domenic, second to Little Alice (who has just finished her championship) third to the Scot, and a bad luck fourth to Mad Hatter, who fell near the finish.

The finals were won going away by Domenic with a close driving finish between Scot, Alice and Pilot in that order. Perhaps the first race was the most exciting to watch as Little Alice who won, made her move about thirty yards from the finish running awry from the leaders as she came from last place. Pilot, who has raced very little made an amazingly good showing and finished fourth in point score. The first three point winners were Domenic, Alice and Scot in that order.

Before we went in to lunch and the Afghans took over the course, there was a match race, which could possibly be called a grudge match between Nancy Mailliard's Huckleberry and his mother Bewitched. The race was won very easily by Huckleberry and debts were immediately paid.

We had a big flock of puppies of all ages and sizes to work with in the afternoon. Noel Jones has a nice puppy by Domenic, Motty Long ran his big white puppy, Veneno, John Harris' bitch Paganka, by Pilot ex Violet was the fastest and most able. There were two very young puppies by Domenic ex Bewitched who wouldn't run at all, and a small white puppy, Xenia, who tried very hard to beat Veneno and Paganka, but couldn't get there by two or three lengths.

In the adult races there were only two of the eight running who are not bench champions. This seems to go far to disprove the idea, held by many, that a top race Whippet is apt to be bred away from type for speeds sake. We do find, however, that what makes a race Whippet better than good but tops, is temperament, and that this temperament and desire to win can be bred in or out of the best bench specimens. Ch. Meander Kingfisher and Caniston Carlotta (on one side straight Baltimore race breeding) are the foundation breeding of some of the fastest Whippets running here. They produced Holiday, also a show winner, Volo her brother, unbeatable in his day, and through Holiday the two top young racing bench champions, Hatter and Little Alice. Meander Pilot, the sire of these two has a terrific race temperament, but is a little too small for a top winner. The obviously fastest race Whippet on the coast is the imported Wingedfoot Domenic. It will be interesting to see what his puppies will do when they are older.

As racing activity grows throughout the USA and people get more chances to race their Whippets in competition, perhaps facts of breeding will emerge as figures are compiled in the same way thoroughbred horses are studied.

The last two weekends in March we have raced at Mrs, Henderson's track, and by the time this is printed Chicago will be a thing of the past and results will show what our team of four race dogs and one puppy has gained by this extra training. We are lucky to be able to race pretty much all winter (even when it rains, some times) but our advantage gained by this climate when we get to Chicago is well balanced by the strain of the trip, Our high point scoring dogs of the past few weeks will be the ones to go. Our best time on the new track so far is 12.1 seconds for the 200 yards. This happened to be a race this Sunday which was run by the team dogs all together, with less than a length between all four of them. Our only other under 13 second time was 12.6, also last Sunday, the team, minus David. This race was won by Scot, Hatter second, Little Alice third with the puppy Xenia, a very straggling fourth. As I write this it comes to mind that the recently adopted rules state that puppies should run only with each other. This race therefore becomes unofficial. It seems to speed up some puppies a great deal to run them with grown dogs once in a while. Since Xenia stands 17", weighing 11 pounds she has to keep her little legs really snapping to finish eight lengths behind the others. The little ones (even when the minus size is not this extreme) suffer racing, it seems, not nearly so much from lack of speed or will to win as a bump or two coming out Of the box, which really throws them off. The Longs very good race dog, Meander Pilot has this trouble with the bigger dogs, as does his daughter Little Alice. As we get more Whippets racing might it not be a good idea to try a few races divided for size, making two classes perhaps with an arbitrary division around 21 pounds. Another idea might be to run a finals with the two top scoring little ones and the two top big ones. I, for one, don't think the little dogs would always lose. Wingedfoot Domenic runs at 21 pounds, and isn't beaten very often. The old method of handicapping a yard for every pound could not be made workable with the present day lure. We have tried it, and of course the dogs who start ahead just stand and wait for the lure to come along before moving. But there doesn't seem to be much racing luck for the little dog, even when he is looking for a very small hole to pass the others. Everyone will think I am writing about this size business because I am having a rash of small Whippets. This may be true, but if any reader has the size problem worked out on a scientifically genetic basis, it would be most interesting to hear their ideas.

Among the younger set; the puppies are beginning to run. John Harris' fast puppy bitch, Paganka, just passed her first birthday, leaving the puppy leadership in dispute. The Long's puppy dog, Veneno, will probably win out here, pressed to some extent by little Xenia. David Wolf's bitch Aida, Norman Ellis' Tosca, have been run very little but show promise. Greet Circle pups, Meistersinger and Carmen are starting to run. Meistersinger is going to young David Biddle in Newtown Square, Pa. We hope to have him well started by the time he leaves, and David has asked me to say that he is very anxious to race his Whippet around Philadelphia, if someone will get things started around there. David, at 10, is a little young to organize it himself.

Another thought about classifying races is to have veterans races for dogs over five or possibly six. The old track champions of e few years ago are just as keen to run as ever, but can't beat the young ones. It must be very frustrating never to win, for a bitch like Bewitched, almost unbeatable in this neighborhood in her day. In this connection I will have to admit that Andrew Delfino's Vole, who is rising seven years old, is very apt to win a race once in a while, and did so last Sunday, but the time was 14.5. People who own top race dogs would be much more apt to keep on racing them a lot longer if they could draw into a set of races with dogs about their own age. None of us have been in a position until recently to have these older dogs, but we are obviously bound to get them in ever increasing numbers, so this might not be a bad idea.

We have had more and more enthusiasts at the races, and people who don't own dogs but just come to look on. Mrs. Henderson's beautiful setting and generous hospitality are in large part responsible for this, and with better equipment all the time, better organization of races, more dogs and more races, it seems certain that this local interest will grow. I will omit detailed results of out last two race days, as we can hardly expect such results to compete with Chicago in the same issue.

Rabbit hunting has been wonderful this spring. The fields near Yuba City, Calif. are full of rabbits, and no barbed wire for miles. Some of the Whippets have been out several times with Mr. Saltmarsh's pack of Lurchers. What the Lurchers lack in speed they more than make up in intelligence, canniness and keenness. They are great rabbit dogs and fun to hunt with, though they are not built to be, or meant to be, anything like as fast as a Whippet. Mr. Saltmarsh has been breeding these dogs for the past few years and his pack hunts well together.


Oklahoma Whippet Club
Dr. Samuel H. Scott

In spite of the nasty weather we have managed to run once a month all winter except once. Winter speeds were, of course, not as good as those of better months due to poor track conditions and most uncomfortable weather conditions, but all in all we have kept going and have enjoyed ourselves. At least after we thawed out we insisted that it had been fun. At our last meeting it was decided to purchase two permanent trophies to be awarded to the do g and the bitch from within the club which amassed the largest total number of points racing during the year. The name of the dog or bitch will be engraved on the trophy each year and the trophy will remain in the possession of the owner for the following year. We believe that this will encourage members to run their dogs regularly and will, of course, recognize our best dog and bitch each year. Our youngsters are progressing well and we have five in the club who will be a year old soon or who have just passed their birthday. The more the merrier, we say. We also have some five month old pups who have begun to run 100 yard schooling heats against one another and they are, of course, lots of fun to watch as they learn their lessons. We have found that pups will loaf along and have fun for a while and suddenly they will decide to catch the lure. Overnight they become serious racers. The transformation is instantaneous and wondrous to see. More and more spectators are beginning to watch us run now, and we hope the enthusiasm will grow to the point soon where our club will begin to increase in the number of one dog owners. We feel these people must be the backbone of any dog organization, for the breeders and kennel owners cannot carry the whole program.

The latest problem which we are tackling is that of accurate timing of our races. Fortunately, one of our new enthusiasts (in the process of constructing quarters for our Canesco's Dutch Treat who will be his) is Mr. Frank J. Kern, a member of the Electrical Engineering Faculty of the University of Oklahoma. He thinks that soon he will be able to provide us with a timer which will time our races accurately to 1/10th of a second without any leeway for human error.

Talking recently with Mr. Louis Pegram, he suggested the advantages of having the " peep-holes" in the doors of the starting boxes near the ground. He says that the dogs get off to faster starts that way. Has anybody tried this idea? We intend to give it a try. We have also converted to rear-loading boxes and like them much better that way.


THE MAIL BAG

Joyce Anson, County Line P.O., British Columbia, Canada, writes-

First I want to thank you for the Whippet News which I have been receiving regularly. It really is a most interesting paper and I so look forward to it. The English news and views naturally make it even more interesting for me. I think its a wonderful effort. Good luck in the future.

Now - I wonder if you can help me. A few of us are going to try and start a small Whippet Club here with the idea of trying to get some racing started. Chief trouble is that there are very few Whippets yet. Only mine and my daughters and a few pups that we have sold locally, even so we are going to have a try at putting on one or two exhibition races at the local fall fairs. This might recruit a few fanciers to our fold and then next year we might be able to do things on a larger scale. I do feel if once we could get a start it would grow a pace. Now could you let me know what pattern muzzles you have found most suitable (I used to race Greyhounds a lot back home, so the racing game is not foreign to me). Will plain leather strap muzzles be enough or are wire ones necessary?

What pattern do you use for jackets and how do you allow for the vast difference in the Whippets sizes?

We would like to race under the same set of rules as the A. W. C. and then one day in the not too distant future, maybe we will be holding international race meetings with you. Any advice you can offer in the formation of this club would be greatly appreciated - but as I said before we will be very small to start with. I think we can muster 8 Whippets between us if we try hard.


Jewell Killian, Galveston, Texas, writes-

I am very proud to report that my Whippet, Windswept Thunderbolt, finished his championship at the Lawton-Ft. Sill Kennel Club All Breed show on March 6, 1960. March 6 was quite a day for me. I finished my Whippet and went Best-In-Show with my Pomeranian!


Mrs. P. H. Tesky, River Road Rental, Marinette, Wis., writes-

Yes, I do enjoy the Whippet News and should like to continue to receive it although my activities (Whippet-wise) are confined to ownership of one lovable bitch - one Harbridge Katrinka by name.


Jacques Tucker, Norfolk, Va., writes

After reading Eloise Kailin's article in December's issue I'd had no idea anyone else in the world had even seen or heard of such a Whippet as this sassy, bold, mischievous type, certainly I never had. However, we are the extremely proud owners of one. We also have a female who is very friendly and playful at almost five years old but to be sure she is nothing like our male. Life is a great big joke to big, wonderful Kim and everything that moves is made especially to chase. Other dogs were made for him to scare and knock down and play with. Chris, our female had a dog bed full of toys which she no longer has because now Kim is here. Its nothing to be leaning over the bath tub washing, the inside and get pushed in head first and so help me when I finally struggle upon my feet he is standing in the door laughing at me. My husband (to whom the dog really belongs) and I had him out in the field last Sunday and when my husband climbed a tree Kim tried too, and got furious when he found it just couldn't be done and when my husband came down cut of the tree Kim promptly nipped him, as he bent over to pick up a ball, letting my husband know he didn't want him up in that tree again. When we take them out in the woods or park, Chris chases things and smells of everything while Kim keeps a watchful eye on the family to see that we all stay together and no one gets away. He knows everyone in the family by name and if asked to go after a certain member of the family does so without a moments hesitation. He is a highly intelligent dog and sometimes I think he has got more sense than I have. Mrs. Kailin, I surely hope you find one of those bold, sassy, types you mentioned because they are the greatest. We know, our Kim is wonderful.


Mrs. Charles Turner, writes-

Even though we are newcomers to Whippet circles, we have enjoyed reading the Whippet News so much. It is interesting to read what other owners are doing, and we have especially enjoyed the section on racing. Having derived much pleasure (among other emotions!) from, our two "children" for the past year, we are convinced that Whippets are the only breed! We hope to take our dogs through Novice Obedience this Spring - we have been working hard... hope to have more news & reports....
