Note: In cases where these figures disagree with the number of All Breed Shows as shown in the Gazette or other publications, it should be remembered that in some cases so called All Breed Shows are limited as to Group (only Toys, only Terriers, etc.,) or do not give Group or Best in Show Awards.

Each year I find myself concerned lest I have inadvertently miscounted in assembling the rather extensive basic material, failed to give any dog his proper number of wins, or failed to include his proper titles, or have erred in other ways. If this has happened, I apologize and assure all concerned that it was not my intention.

During this coming summer Canesco and the Scotts will move to Denton, Texas. Because of the necessary confusion of the move, because of increased responsibilities which my new position will place upon me, and because I have now kept these statistics for eleven years, I hope that someone will volunteer to take over this task. I cannot promise that I shall be able to do so during the coming year. Cordially,

Samuel H. Scott


In response to requests I have included the names of the owners of the dogs. The points were calculated according to the Phillips System, devised by Mrs. Irene Castle Khatoonian some years ago. One point is assigned for each dog defeated by the dog named, i.e., if a dog places second in a group he receives points totalling the number of dogs in the group less the number of dogs in the breed represented by the dog placing first in that group, etc.

Eastern Specialty

As you must know by now, the Eastern Whippet Club Specialty will be held on Oct. 15, 1967 at the Rock Creek Kennel Club show in Gaithersberg, Maryland.

This year I am asking everyone to please make their own reservations. I have saved a block of 10 rooms at the Washingtonian Motel, and if any other rooms become available they are to be placed in reserve for A. W. C. members. When you write or phone them please state that you are an American Whippet Club exhibitor and would like to make a reservation, mention my name, type of room you wish and give dates of arrival and departure. The address is - Washingtonian Motel, Route 240, Shady Grove Road, Gaithersburg, Maryland. Phone no. - 301 - 948-2200.

As everyone knows who has been to this area, motels are far and few, so please make your reservation as soon as you have read this letter, otherwise you may be l e ft o ut. Everyone who makes the Rock Creek show stays here, as it is right on top of the show grounds and the Bulldog Club and a Poodle Club also have a specialty at this show. Believe me there are no rooms that go begging on this week end.

From four to six miles from the Washingtonian Motel are two motels you might want to try for reservations if you cannot get in the Washingtonian. These are - The Colonial Manor Motel, Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland, and the Rockville Plaza, 254 North W ashington, Rockville, Maryland.

Just as a reminder, Catonsville K. C. show is on the Saturday so it is a very nice week end. Most people stay at the Washingtonian for both shows, but it is quite a distance from Gaithersburg to Catonsville.

At any rate make your reservation before the middle of July.

On Sunday night, October 15, 1967 at 7:00 P. M. in a reserved room at the Washingtonian Motel the A. W. C. will have a meeting. Cocktails and dinner will be served as usual for those wishing to join us. Everyone exhibiting at the Specialty is welcome, member or not. Everyone will receive two free drinks, the dinner and any further beverages will be at the individual's expense. If you have any further questions please write to me or the motel.

May I at this time take the opportunity to thank everyone who so generously contributed to the trophy fund for both shows, Rock Creek and Westchester.

Looking forward to seeing you at both shows.

Catherine Hodgson Reports on Her Findings: This year with a difference, that is as far as the exhibits were concerned, all having been prize winners at the 1966 champion ship shows, where, at most of them, entries have been high, so it was expected this Cruft's entry would be top quality. Unfortunately I cannot truthfully say this was the case, expeoially in the lower classes and particularly in dogs.

I was disappointed to find many with wrong shoulder placement, badly over-loaded making for elbows out and wide front action. I also found quite a few with poor thin feet and loose pasterns. However, on the credit side, cut-away backs were conspicuous by their absense, also closd hind-action -- two bad faults in the breed we can well do without.

The Best of Breed award was well and truly won by the lovely Ch. Laguna Ravens downe Astri. She was in top form and never put a foot wrong, and kept the flag flying in the Best in Show competition where she showed off her many charms in the big ring to be kept in the final five line-up in the Hound Group.

I was pleased to award the Dog Challenge Certificate to Wymere Regal Prince, his third, which makes him a worthy champion. He also was in top form and had to beat five well-known champions to gain this place. The Open Bitch class was a humdinger, too. I could have used another half dozen first prize cards here!

Our ringside was crowded throughout the judging and I heard snatches of more than one foreign language, but I was kept busy sorting out the eighteen classes, scheduled, to finish around 5:30 P.M. there was little time left for greetings.

I had three wonderful stewards to look after me in Mrs. Gilpin, Miss Wright and Fir. Wright and take this opportunity of recording a big thank you to them' also to the exhibitors for the sporting way they accepted my placings.


T. Ramsey, Assistant Secretary, South Moor Whippet Racing Club, England, writes -

I write on behalf of the above club. We are only a small club with some thirty-four members at present and we are busy building up our track. We now are running over 120 yds. but later this year we hope to have a track somewhere near 200 yds. we run at Ashley Park. One of our dogs, Pauls Flash, is at present rated the fastest dog in our part of North-West Durham. On March 12, 1967 he raced in a race over 175 yards. His time was 9.4 seconds, the record was before 9.8 seconds. So our little club is proud of Pauls Flash.

Copies of the WHIPPET NEWS helps us keep in touch with the whippet world and at our weekly meeting many of our members have said how they like to read your American magazine.


Mrs. D. U. McKay, Secretary, The Whippet Club, writes - The Whippet Club held their championship show on April 1st with an entry of 246 and 152 exhibits. The Judges were Lady Auderson (Tweseldown) for Dogs and Mr. J. Barker (Barmaud) for Bitches. B.I.S. and Bitch C.C. was won by Mrs. Chopman's Moonlight and Roses by Ch. Telstar whose dam, Ch. Interflora, had the honor of winning in 1965.

The Dog CC, Mr. Roll's Velroza Pink Gin, a five year old fawn dog and well known Best of Breed winner at our Open Members Shows. Mr. Odell's Shalfleet Silken Ladder an eight month fawn dog by Hillgertt Sheriff of Test ex Shelfleet Starmaiden was Best Puppy from an entry of 52 dogs and bitches.

Mrs. Argyle topping the Special Puppy Bitch, Puppy and Maiden Ditch Classes with her nine months old fawn Harque the Lark by Harque to Beaumont ex Rosaday of Knot Kum. Miss Hawthorn's brindle white Deepridge Mint Master, Ch. Laguna Ligionier ex Deepridge Juliet also won his three classes. (puppy dog, Novice and Undergraduate Dog).


Cecilia Francis, London, writes - Our racing season has now epened' the date of start was April 2nd. Trials and timing were done the two previous weeks. Seventy-one dogs the first week and sixty-eight dogs the second week. On April 2nd, fifty-four experienced dogs were raced by handicap on time. As there are so many new members and puppies at this early time of season, it has been decided to run meetings every week, one week for tuition and one for racing. This week end we shall be having a social evening for members and friends and on Sunday morning will be doing tuition. Since last season, one of our members has made a round tack on his land. It is 360 yards full circuit and several of our members have tried their dogs round it. Most of them master the bends very well.

In your last issue received, there was a letter from Mrs. Edith Brownsell of Chesham England and it may interest your readers to know that Am. Ch. Briarcliffe Blazeaway comes from her breeding through my Sante's Taby. It is this way on the sires side. Mrs. Brownsell's Sante Bebob was bought by me and bred to my Wisteria of Laguna, producing Sante's Taby, who sired Ch. Casina Mia who whelped the Am. Ch. Briarcliffe Blazeaway. At our opening meeting a member from Chesham brought Mrs. Brownsell and her husband to see the racing. I think she will be writing of her impressions to you.

The first of the open air shows will soon be with us and eveyyone is hoping for good, fine weather. It was terribly windy and cold last year for Both, which is I believe, the very first Open Air Show of the year.

Our first interclub match will be on May 21st against Sedgebrook. This is early in the season but we must work in our commitments. Will write again soon.


TO THE MEMBERS OF THE AMERICAN WHIPPET CLUB -

Once again we are embarking on a new official year for the Club. As evidenced by the interest in holding membership in the Club, in the WHIPPET NEWS, in Whippet activities, we are making continual progress. Progress has also been made in the form of develop­ ment and adoption of our new Constitution, the revised edition of which has now received the approval of the American Kennel Club and has been decisively approved by the membership.

During the past two years we have discussed many aspects of the Club, its membership, its activities, the goals of the organization as well as the individual members, promotion of the Whippet and Whippet activities. At this time it might be good to view the Club from the viewpoint of the individual member, particularly with respect to the question of "What concept does the individual member have of the American Whippet Club?", "What can and should it do for me as an individual member?". It would be good to have replies on this question addressed to the WHIPPET NEWS. All of us have our own idea of the way we view things or a sense of values with regard to the Club and how the Board members and Officers can better serve the membership.

To begin with one might take inventory or assess the resources available to the Club, to appraise the various strengths and capabilities. In total one might respond to the question "What is the Club's feasibility?", "What is Technically and Economically possible?".

All of us live in the real world and we need to face the real world as it is. Living in a dream world is some times fascinating and nice but never provides for deep down satisfaction of achievement but rather continual evasion of the things that make for greatest satisfaction and happiness.

In analyzing the real world of the American Whippet Club, we might summarize some of the pertinent aspects as follows -

1. The Club is international in scope, having members in the United States, Canada and Great Britain.

2. The membership is not concentrated in any one geographical area nor does it have many members that can conveniently attend events in the East, as well as the Midwest, as well as the West Coast.

3. The Directors are also located over the same geographical area as most of its members which is, we believe, the way it should be.

4. The WHIPPET NEWS is probably the most meaningful activity in which all the members have an opportunity to participate either by presentation of articles, advertisements or simply by enjoying reading about others.

5. The American Whippet Club unites those people interested in breeding, showing, racing, coursing and generally improving the breed.

6. The American Whippet Club co-ordinates specialty and supported shows as well as national racing programs.

7. The American Whippet Club has the responsibility for the maintenance of the Standards of the Breed as approved by the American Kennel Club.

Undoubtedly, there are many other aspects of the Club one could add to the list that would be of interest and add to the "total concept" of the Club. The single most relevant observation, I believe, would be that the Club is actually a large organiza tion geographically rather than numerically. This means that from the total concept point of view activities such as showing and racing are at best "fragmented".

In view of this fragmentation, the success of various regional or local activities depends upon many, many individual leaders, contributors, workers in the so called regional or local areas rather than at the so called national level. The contribution of the Club, to a great extent, is that of providing basic information, policies and guidelines which are so essential to provide for a uniform country wide activity

and represent the Whippet people in association with the American Kennel Club. Progress in development of better and more satisfying guidelines and so called regulations and the communication of these to all regional and local areas is, there fore, the greatest contribution of the American Whippet Club as a national organization. Success without good hard work by many individual members of the Club is not possible. This hard work is either the fun, hobby or relaxation for its members - which is the way it should be.

An ever present need is to obtain and develop more and more members that have the capability of assuming national office, which requires much time, much hard work and a lot of travel. We encourage your proposals on people that can or will willingly serve in such a capacity. Any Club, in order to prosper, needs to have many such good people coming along in the organization. It is our hope that more and more of these can be found and developed in the future.

The same need for people that can fill national offices is equally as great in both regional and local activities. It is only through the willingness and capability of individual members that the American Whippet Club and all its associated activities can make progress and be successful in the real Whippet world.

Respectfully submitted May 15, 1967. Victor A. Renner, President

Every month I tell myself that this month I am going to write a letter to the WHIPPET NEWS and each month goes by without my finding time to write the letter. This month I am taking the easy way. I am giving the data to the TIC Adv. Agency (Tongue In Cheek) and letting them write the letter. This is hard on me because they insist on sticking exactly to the truth and it seems to me I should be allowed to be kennel blind like any normal breeder. For me, they said:

All has been quiet at Eyleland these last few months. Lots and lots of snow and lots and lots of rain and cold weather all spring. Hardly a winter or spring for a Whippet. We had to go all the way to St. Louis to be able to race our dogs. So you see, dog wise, it has been a rather dull spring with no International, no racing and no litters.

Until last Wednesday, that is. On Wednesday Ralph did a very stupid thing. Being late going someplace he shoved all the dogs out the back door without sorting them. Later the horrible thought occurred to him that he had put out Tost also and so there she was, within a day or two of whelping time, out in the back yard with 15 other Whippets. Tost was equal to the occasion and when he came home he found her in a corner with three puppies. Before the day was over she had had three more, one of which did not survive but a few days. Now Tost has five very nice puppies - 1 female fawn, 1 male fawn and three Rinso white males with fawn marking on their heads only. This is a repeat of the breeding that produced Ch. Eyleland Cinnamon Roll (Rollo). The litter was sired by Stoney Meadows Epic and the puppies are brothers and sisters of Rollo. Because of his age it may be the last litter sired by Epic.

Naturally it is expected that in the final race of the 1968 Marysville Race Program five of the finalists will be from this litter.

Sunday, Meander Shade made the day an historic one by whelping eight puppies, sired by Ch. Eyleland Cinnamon Roll. In line with the trend of the season most of them are males. This was a repeat breeding too, and we hope all eight will be as good as their older brother, Eyleland Shadow Boxer, who is a very handsome animal and one that moves very well. Meander Shade is a yellow black brindle and Rollo (Ch. Cinnamon Roll) is red fawn and the puppies are all sorts of colors, brindles and solid colors.

Anyone for male Whippets, please? Please. Please.

Just so we would not have any unused whelping boxes our Corgi, Stormerbanks Idle Gossip had a litter of three. Of course there are twice as many males as females. Stormerbanks is one of the top Corgi Kennels in England. One male puppy is still available and the price is $150.00.

Eyleland Kennel intends to share its good fortune with the rest of the Whippet world and will accept reservations for puppies from these two litters. Write, wire or phone right away. Better yet, come in person. Do not delay. Pedigrees on request. For a picture send 25 cents. For a puppy send a signed blank check.

WHIPPET
STANDARD OF THE BREED

General Appearance - The Whippet should be a dog of moderate size, very alert, that can cover a maximum of distance with .a minimum of lost motion, a true sporting hound. Should be put down in hard condition but with no suggestion of being muscle-bound.

Head - Long and lean, fairly wide between the ears, scarcely perceptible stop, good length of muzzle which should be powerful without being coarse. Nose entirely black.

Ears - Small, fine in texture, thrown back and folded. Semipricked when at attention Gay ears are incorrect and should be severely penalized.

Eves - Large, intelligent, round in shape and dark hazel in color, must be at least as dark as the coat color. Expression should be keen and alert. Light yellow or oblique eyes should be strictly penalized. A sulky expression and lack of alertness to be considered most undesirable.

Teeth - White, strong and even. Teeth of upper jaw should fit closely over the lower. An undershot mouth shall disqualify.

Neck - Long and muscular, well-arched and with no suggestion of throatiness, widening gradually into the shoulders. Must not have any tendency to a "ewe" neck.

Shoulders - Long, well laid back with long, flat muscles. Loaded shoulders are a very serious fault.

Brisket - Very deep and strong, reaching as nearly as possible to the point of the elbow. Ribs well sprung but with no suggestion of barrel shape. Should fill in the space between the forelegs so that there is no appearance of a hollow between them.

Forelegs - Straight and rather long, held in line with the shoulders and not set under the body so as to make a forechest. Elbows should turn neither in nor out and move freely with the point of the shoulder. Fair amount of bone, which should carry right down to the foot. Pasterns strong.

Feet - Must be well formed with strong, thick pads and well-knuckled-up paws. A thin, flat, open foot is a serious fault.

Hindquarters - Long and powerful, stifles well bent, hocks well let down and close to the ground. Thighs broad and muscular, the muscles should be long and flat. A steep croup is most undesirable.

Back - Strong and powerful, rather long with a good, natural arch over the loin creating a definite tuck-up of the underline but covering a lot of ground.

Tail - Long and tapering, should reach to a hipbone when drawn through between the hind legs. Must not be carried higher than the top of the back when moving.

Coat - Close, smooth and firm in texture. Color - Immaterial.

Size - Ideal height for dogs, 19 to 22 inches; for bitches, 18 to 21 inches. These are not intended to be definite limits, only approximate.

Gait - Low, free moving and smooth, as long as is commensurate with the size of the dog. A short, mincing gait with high knee action should be severely penalized.

Disqualifications - Undershot Mouth.

INTERNATIONAL KENNEL CLUB WHIPPET RACES AMPHITHEATRE (Air-Conditioned)

Chicago , Illinois

July 22-23, 1967

by Louis Pegram

Mr. William Ogilvie has announced that the International Kennel Club, Chicago, Illinois , will again hold Whippet racing as a spectator attraction. Whippets from all sections of the U.S.A. are invited to compete under National

Racing Rules and Regulations. There will be four complete race programs, two on Saturday at 2:00 P.M. and 7:00 P.M., also two on Sunday at 10:00 A.M. and 2:00 P.M. All eligible Whippets are expected to compete in all four programs.

This year it will be necessary to race only those Whippets which are thoroughly trained for racing and this applies both to adult Whippets and to puppies. There will be thousands of spectators watching these advertised races, and we are going to put on formful racing, not schooling or training races for inexperienced Whippets or fighters.

There will be schooling races on Friday afternoon, July 21, after the American Whippet Club Specialty. Any owners who wish special type races will have the track available to them both Friday afternoon and evening. Here is a fine time to make up special type races of your choice, but all inexperienced Whippets "must school satisfactorily Friday afternoon."

If we average 12 races on each program we will pay purse money of $3.00- 1st, $2.00-2nd and $1.00-3rd for every race on the entire program. Purses will be cut, if entries exceed six Whippets for each 12 race program. There will also be numerous trophies in various categories. We will again offer the MRS. C. GROVERMAN ELLIS Trophy for High Point Race Whippet with the DONALD HOSTETTER MEMORIAL RACE Trophy going to the high point Whippet who has completed his bench championship in the U.S.A. or Canada. The American Whippet Club will offer for the first time, an engraved trophy valued at $14.00 going to each of the following: The High Point Race Whippet, High Point - Opposite Sex and High Point Bench Champion. There are several beautiful rotating trophies which will remain for one year with the winner where such trophies are offered. Suitable trophies will be given in other categories. Mid-West Coursing Assn. will offer a trophy for the high point "Sapling." This is a young racer between 12 and 16 months of age just starting as an Adult racer.

We will be most happy to receive trophy donations for racing, and every effort will be made to place these trophies where the donator wishes. Let us know as soon as possible, but we will take trophy donations through July 21, 1967

The Ralston Purina Company will again have their. Toledo Scale on hand. Every Whippet racing can be weighed some time during the period of the show and races, if the owner so desires.

Racing Points will be offered in line with "The Award of Racing Merit."

KATHALEEN BERGIE REPORTS
Aruada, Colorado
March 27, 1967

On January 25, 1967 our two whippets, Ch. Rocket's Torpedo, CDX and Whipoo's Stone- crest Sprite, were invited to participate in the Rocky Mountain News-Western Federal Savings "Purebred Dogs From Around the World" exhibit. This is an annual event jointly sponsored by the Rocky Mountain News, one of Denver's newspapers, and the Western Federal Savings and Loan Association. It is held in the bank lobby at the downtown branch. The dogs are on exhibit with their owner, so that the owner can answer any questions. It's a promotion gimmick, of course, for the bank and the newspaper' but in addition it was another chance to get our whippets before the public so that it could become acquainted with the breed. The exhibit lasts a week and the breeds are changed every day, and each day the dogs are on exhibit from 10:30 to 2:00 P.M. This covers most workers' lunch hours. You'd be amazed at how many people come to this affair. It has sort of caught on over the years. The day I and the two dogs were there, more than three thousand people crowded around the ring, and I started talking to people and answering questions from the moment I arrived until I left. Several people made reservations for puppies whenever I have them. I'm convinced

that all the whippet needs is a little judicious publicity, and he would catch on here. I have surely noticed, just in the last year or so, an upsurge in this breed's popularity in Denver. For most of the years that I have had Scamper and Sunny this town has been completely dead as far as whippets were concerned.

On November 23rd, Scamper (our Ch. Rocket's Torpedo, CDX) appeared on Channel 7 in Denver as a publicity stunt to publicize the forth coming Terry-All Kennel Club Dog Show which was held December 4, 1966. He was as cool as a cucumber and looked and acted just perfect. We had many nice compliments and inquiries about the breed. Thus in publicizing the dog show, Scamper and I also publicized whippets, the chance at which I always take. Katy's (Ch. Whipoo's Copy Cat) puppies by Scamper are doing very nicely and will make their debut in the show ring in April.

April 11, 1967

A few days ago I received the proposed revisions to the Constitution and By-Laws of the American Whippet Club. After no little thought I find I cannot approve of adding Sections 2, 3, and 4 to Article VII. From personal experience in another dog club with similar provisions in its constitution, I know that such provisions can easily create bitterness and misunderstandings to say th e least. I know that such provisions are supposed to help maintain a high level of ethical conduct' but somehow, to me, they smack too much of spying and "police-state" tactics. Stricter membership requirements might help, but I also know that these cannot do the whole job. The point should be made top that whoever made up the proposed new Constitution and By­ laws as printed in the August 1965 issue of the WHIPPET NEWS, apparently didn't approve of this idea either.


EPINARD KENNEL

Walnut Creek, California
Lynne Trounce

LET'S GET OUR FACTS STRAIGHT

Dear Mr. Webster: Found your article in WHIPPET NEWS, October-November, 1966, Vol. 10, Issue 5, very interesting but confusing. Quotation from your article, subject: Urray Chieftain. "This means that he must be rated as High Point Champion on the West Coast, as he has captured the top honours at all three major point meetings." The West Coast covers quite a few places. On the West Coast we had six National Point Races, 1966-65.

1.
Canada
20
 
2.
Renton
35
 
3.
Santa Barbara
43
 
4.
Fresno, S.C.W.A.
22
 
5.
Lancaster S.C.W.A.
28
Note: Race meet Dec 65, but considered
 
  beginning of race season for CA.
6.
Pleasanton. CA N.C.W.F.A. Races
20
 

The winners at these National Point Races, results published in the WHIPPET NEWS, as follows:

Canada, Vancouver
1. Can.Ch Rockabye Ember of Course - High Point Adult
2. Rambling Free and Easy - 2nd Highest Score
3. Urray Chieftain - 3rd Highest score.

Renton, Washington
1. Urray Chieftain - High Point Adult
2. Can. Ch Rockabye Ember of Course - 2nd Highest Score and B.O.S.
3. White Acres Sage - 3rd Highest Score

Santa Barbara
1. Ringo's Ringo - High Point Adult - undefeated
2. Urray Cheiftain - 2nd Highest score
3. Can. Ch. Rockabye Ember of Course - 3rd highest score and B.O.S.

Fresno
1. Ringo's Ringo - High Point Adult
2. Ch. Hollypark Highland Fling - 2nd highest score.
3. Ch. Piperkins Rambler - 3rd highest score.

N.C.W.F.A. Races, Pleasanton
1. Ringo's Ringo - high point adult, undefeated.
2. Ch. Piperkins Rambler - 2nd highest score.
3. White Acres Sage - 3rd highest score.

Lancaster S.C.W.A.
1. Ringo's Ringo - high point adult
2. Ch Sing'n Little Blue Girl - 2nd highest score and B.O.S.
3. Wiiki Wiki Gina - 3rd highest score.

So how do you figure Urray Cheiftain should be considered the high point champion on the West Coast with record of one High Score Adult, one 2nd Highest Score, and one 3rd Highest Score. I would think that Can. Ch. Rockabye Ember of Course would be considered number one race Whippet in Canada and number one race bitch on West Coast with a record of one High Score Adult, two B.O.S., one 2nd Highest Score, and one 3rd Highest Score. Ringo's Ringo would be number one Race Whippet on the West Coast with record of four High Point Adult wins and first Whippet to win Santa Barbara for a second time.

Then in regard to your statement on Can. Ch. Urray Wild Bills BIS as being first Best in Show Whippet on the West Coast since 1928. Haven't you over looked B.I.S. - West Coast

1. Ch. Frosty Man of Meander - July 1944
2. Ch. Picardia Polkadot - Sept, 1946; April 1948' June 1948' August 1948
3. Ch. Canyon Crest Mamie
4. Ch. Canyon Crest Teardrop
5. Ch. Canyon Crest Jet Princess
Canyon Crest Kennels accounted for numerous B.I.S. during the 1950's.
6. Ch. Meander Muzarka - Richmond Kennel Club. At the age of 9 years
7. Ch. Fleetfoot Courtney - Hobor Cities Kennel Club.

I think it only just and proper for a owner to state the accomplishments of his dog in as complimentary a fashion as possible - after all, if the owner or breeder does not boast, who will. However, Mr. Webster, if you want to shout Hooray for Urray, please do so accurately. After all the WHIPPET NEWS goes to many, many people and I am sure you don't wish to create a false impression.


KEBBEKUS REPORT

Gunnison , Colorado
Bruce and Judy Kebbekus

Judy and I will be moving in one week to Gunnison, Colorado. I have enrolled at Western State College of Colorado, where I hope to finish my last three semesters in Business Administration. Judy will start her new job as head nurse at Gunnison County Hospital on May 22.

We will take our four Whippets into a rustic log house on six acres of wooded land with a trout stream in the front yard. The county is a sportsman's paradise: big game hunting, trout fishing, and a major ski area (Crested Butte). We bought an International Scout 4WD for excursions into the back-country. There is no shortage of open spaces, with less than two persons per square mile.

I saw Kathleen Beargie three weeks ago in Arvada. We discussed the possibility of filling the gap between the Midwest and West Coast racing enthusiasts with a National Point Race in 1968. Denver is half-way between each group. It might be the place to hold the biggest race of the year. We will check out the possibility of using one of the greyhound tracks in the area. I hope to hear from some club members about their interest in Colorado racing.


MADCAP KENNEL REPORTS Pebble Beach , California Norman W. Ellis

May, 1967

Nearer my dog to thee? Why, I hardly know you! This is the predicament at this apartment and boarding school boundried Kennel this year. Resident counselor, teacher, and riding master, my time is devoured by high calibre high school boys, whose problems are so many and diverse that they leave little or no time for my own. Consequently the dogs are suffering from a severe lack of attention, along with family and friends. To be sure, the dogs spend their nights in this abode, and in the cases of Bold Minstrel, Tosca and Skibbereen, their days too, but we have little communication. If only they were assigned to me as counsellees, then I would be obligated to chat with them officially, at least once a month!

The few shows my young dogs attended have found them unfamiliar with leashes. I had not realized how similar to a fighting fish on the line is a young whippet on a show lead for the first or second time. The fortunate fisherman has the privacy of the open sea to battle with his catch, while the dog's exhibitor must parade his negligence as well as his retching, gyrating puppy before a curious ringside audience, not to mention the disgusted judge. This shortage of training time may not produce brilliant results at the dog shows, but it has the opposite effect at horse shows.

You can't believe how dynamic my hunter, "Sensible", can be after two weeks of solid schooling inside his box stall.

To compound errors, I had not taken the time to open and read the November WHIPPET NEWS until the arrival of the December edition, in May. The Jacobs, too, must be rather pushed for time. Personal correspondence has gone to pot (not the hemp type), and so have I. The only race training Bold Minstrel has received in the past several months has been his daily race from the sofa to his food dish, to the open grass, and back again to the couch. Tosca, Smile, Calliope, and Scotch have a similar training program, including their additional daily exercises in bed and blanket digging (mine). Scotch is terribly adept in this sporting area.

Shortly before the Garden I spent several enjoyable hours with Bob and Dorthea Hastings. They have the nicest kennel arrangement I have seen. Each kennel has its own double run, one covered for inclement weather, connected through a gate with the sunshine run. I left 'Smile" with the Hastings, who took him to New York, where Bob picked up a nice major for the dog under Ellsworth Gamble.

Dog Shows and trips have been few and far between this year. Jennie Henderson and Jeannette Keppelman dragged me away from work for the Fresno and Bakersfield shows. We stayed with old friends of mine near Fresno, Gary and Wilma Heisinger. I had given them a whippet pup as a wedding gift several years ago. They had ten or so running about when we were there in April. Earlier in the year, Mrs. Keppelman and I were guests, along with the Trounces, at Don and Barbara Frames' ranchito near Raymond ( Madera County). While there, Barbara and Lynn, both good cooks, put their culinary talents together and produced one of the best dinners ever cooked. The serene and "away-from-it-all" setting of the Frames' place lends itself to the undistracted enjoyment of food and fellowship.

What the dogs and I have missed most this year are our jaunts to Mrs. Henderson's dog villa, "Homeplace." There has been so little time for those marvelous dog talks, and the enjoyment of that grand personality, Jennie Henderson. The dogs miss the special tid-bits that Jennie dreams up for them, particularly dear old Tosca.

Oh well, summer is coming and with the new season perhaps a better organized dog program. The dogs will not be traveling far this year. We will be staying close to home to train, rest, and regroup.


MARIAL'S KENNEL REPORTS Shorewood, Wisconsin Nary Beth Arthur

In the WHIPPET NEWS, several people have expressed an interest in getting information and advice from "experienced" whippet owners. So far no one has made an attempt at supplying this advice.

I have been actively engaged in whippets for four years now which by no means qualifys myself as an expert. However, I have had enough time to form opinions and made decisions about this wonderful breed of dog and other practical aspects of owning and keeping them.

Without getting too long winded (hopefully) I would like to present to you what I consider to be the model whippet' also shown are several sketches picturing whippets which I feel are faulty.

My ideal whippet at once impresses me with his overall good conformation, confidence, health and condition. This animal looks as if it were born to run or just rest on my sofa and keep me company. The dog seems strong but still is not too masculine (see example of female).

Since my ideal whippet is a pet, race, and show dog, I look for the following qualities:

PET:
1. calm or outgoing disposition, never shy
2. good health (meaning worm free, shiny coat, clear eyes, etc.)

RACE DOG:
1. temperament aggressive without being unmanageable
2. good health and muscle tone
3. sound conformation with emphasis on movement, straight hind and fore quarters, strong feet, body length, top line and substantial bone development.

SHOW DOG:
1. good conformation
2. good health
3. steady, preferably outgoing, disposition

This is a brief list of general qualities I prefer in a whippet (with obvious implications).

The whippets presented as faulty, each has merits as well as shortcomings. I am not condemning their faults but merely pointing them out. Dog in and #2 are mostly out of proportion. 11 is too long and 12 is too short and tall. #3 appears to have a shy disposition. He also has a cut away back which will give him weak hind quarters with a tendency toward cow hocks. In comparison #3 is the poorest of the three.

Remember that these are my own opinions. They are intended to stimulate constructive questions and criticisms. Responses to this article are encouraged.

MISSISSIPPI VALLEY KENNEL CLUB RACE RESULTS - MAY 20 and 21, 1967

by Louis Pegram

Mississippi Valley Kennel Club Show, St. Louis, Missouri, was the first Mid-West American Whippet Club supported entry show of 1967. It was also the first Mid-West race meeting held under National Racing Rules and Regula­ tions for Whippets this year. Seventeen Whippets were entered in the Conformation Classes. Forty-seven Whippets took part in the races.

Weather was ideal. Competition was very keen both with the puppy and adult races. Racing equipment worked perfectly. We had the largest spectator crowd ever for the St. Louis race meeting.

Assistance from our group was outstanding. Mrs. Victor Renner acted as Paddock Judge and assisted with the Grading System. Mrs. Mary Beth Strauss Arthur handled the identification board and assisted with the Grading System. Mrs. Judy Morgan handled trophies and assisted with Grading System. Mrs. Nita Hopkins assisted with Grading System. Mr. Hopkins did an outstanding job as Official Starter. Mr. Selwyn Blackstone operated the electric lure. Lure pacing was outstanding with no false starts. Placing and Foul Judges were Dr. James Corbin, Mr. Robert Mohrman, Mr. William Conrad, Mr. Ed Ziegler, and Mr. Gary Morgan.

All Whippet owners present wish to express their sympathy to Miss Martha Love. Her brother passed away suddenly just a few days before the races. Naturally, Martha could not be with us this year. The beautiful trophy she donated for Best of Opposite Sex was won by Renfield Kennels, Marysville, Ohio .

Louis Pegram had those Whippet owners taking part in the races to his home on Saturday night for a little Whippet party. Victor Renner brought some very excellent film footage showing stride of Whippets in action. These slow motion films should be viewed by certain judges who insist on placing Whippets with mincing gaits and extreme arched backs.

Strathoak Spring Intrigue who likes a distance of ground found the range in his last two races. His score of two wins and two seconds made him the High Point Racer. His defeats came at the hands of the white speedster, Titan Hobo, and the very fast female racer, Heather Blue. Caesar, a big strong young racer, will improve during the season. This being the first major Mid-West event of 1967 probably contributed to the below average showing of such outstanding veterans as Eyleland Homer and CH. Rouget 0r Lazeland. It is highly possible that Renfield Bimmi will be the top Renner racer in 1967. Competition was very keen as indicated by the very high scores made by many of the Whippets who took part.

Sir Winston a very fast (July 12, 1966) son of Ch. Courtney Fleetfoot Pennyworth - Ch. Legend O'Lazeland was much the best, winning all four of his starts from "box to wire." He was trained by his 16 year old owner, Rusty Whitworth. Second high point puppy was a litter brother to the above Spill No Whiskey.

Third and fourth high point puppies were the Meander Kennel bred Floating World and Final Word. These were born August 13, 1966.

All young Whippets shown were good strong racing type individual. Many of them will still be eligible from an age standpoint to race in Chicago, Illinois , on July 22 and 23. We are hopeful of a fine puppy race entry at this mid-summer event.

ACQUAINTING THE THE PUBLIC WITH THE WHIPPET
By Mary Jane Frank

In the January/February 1967 issue, the question was raised concerning how to make the Whippet known, by and desirable to the general public as a pet. In Middle Tennessee this is a big problem. To my knowledge, there are only sixteen in this area' ten are owned by the Wallace's or me and the other six are "pets". There is no racing closer than .Jest Memphis, Arkansas, and this is pari-mutual Greyhounds. So very few people know what a Whippet is, much less desire one as a pet.

I have found that there is a fairly standard reaction from a person seeing a Whippet for the first time. The first thing anyone says to me is, "why don't you feed that dog!" Of course I explain about the breed and its purpose, but this is one of the reasons I try to keep ribs well covered. The second comment is usually, "That dog is a coward, look how he tucks his tail." Again, explanations. Pretty soon my dogs warm up and swat that tongue across the stranger's hand (or face, if it is handy) and that is the end of the strangeness. But how many people can ten Whippets make personal contact with?

I recall seeing in an old issue of the WHIPPET NEWS that a pack of Whipoo Whippets appeared in a production of "Midsummer Night's Dream." In the current issue I notice that another Whippet is "co-starring" in "Camelot." It's possible that what Lassie did for Collies, this might do for us. Yet this is not a very practical suggestion, I fear. But I do think "exposure" is a large part of the answer to our problem. Get your Whippets out in public as much as possible. Take them to the park on Sunday; walk them through the shopping center' find a good spot and hold "fun" races for your acquaintances and their friends. Hake your dogs available for such affairs as fashion shows and local theatrical productions. Try to talk a local celebrity into acquiring one: it could become a status symbol -- after all, slimness is equated with high fashion in America these days! But above all, get those Whippets out in public, so that the name is no longer just a speedy antique car!


WHIPPET RACING BACK AS A SPORT
By Eloise Keeler (Submitted by Jane Langdon)

Amateur whippet races are now being held in connection with approximately 10 AKC licensed dog shows throughout the U. S.

For those interested in this exciting sport (which I've been assured the dogs enjoy) national point races will be sponsored by the Northern California Whippet Fanciers Association Saturday (April 1) at the race track, County Fairgrounds, Fresno. Post time - 11 A.M.

Also at the fairgrounds the same day the Sun Maid Kennel Club will hold its annual all-breed dog show, which will include an American Whippet Club supported entry -­ that means a lot of whippets will be shown.

Outside of an antique car called a whippet, most people don't know very much about this breed. I didn't until I saw the dogs benched at the Golden Gate Kennel Club show and met Jayne Langdon, whippet owner and former president of the Northern California Whippet Fanciers. She also is racing secretary for the Fresno event.

These medium size, lithe, sight hounds (height at withers about 20 inches - weight about 20 pounds) were developed in northern England about 100 years ago. Whippets are used for hunting rabbits and other small game. Although generally quiet and friendly, they're good watch dogs and, with their smooth, sleek coats, easy to keep

in condition. But their most outstanding characteristic is their speed. Some whippet - have been clocked up to 35 miles an hour. English coal miners used to call them "the poor man's race horse." In this country, amateur whippet racing was popular in the 1920's. In the 1950's it started up again with "absolutely no betting allowed," Jayne says.

Racing at the Alameda County Fairgrounds is a monthly activity (weather permitting) of the Northern California Whippet, Fanciers.


THE MAIL BAG

Bo Bengtson, Stockholm, Sweden, writes, May 30, 1967 - I was rather surprised by Ralph and Barbara Eyles' article about Greyhound and Whippet conformation. I know full well that the European standard is different from yours in many respects ( to mention only one thing, here we want a marked difference in type, not only in size, between the two breeds, the Whippet being of a bit more bone and substance all around), but I cannot think that you really do want sight hounds with a cat foot.'

Anyone who would care to have a look at a cat's foot will find it looks very neat and attractive, extremely useful for jumping and walking quietly but hardly any good when it comes to fast racing. It is quite a common fault over here to see Whippets with too small feet very tightly knit and not enough out up between the toes. This looks very attractive and is not faulted by some inexperienced judges, but is in fact quite serious. As to Greyhounds, I only need to quote our standard which says: Feet more like those of a hare than those of a cat; and to look at photographs of some of your top winning Greyhounds,..

Perhaps the phrase: Footed like a Kat was meant to refer to the quiet s gliding and effortless movement of both animals?

(Editor's note - The Eyles' article was chosen to be quoted to again emphasize that the American Whippet is a scaled down Greyhound and should look like a Greyhound only smaller. From the American Whippet Standard - Feet - Must be well formed with strong, thick pads and well-knuckled-up paws. A thin, flat, open foot is a serious fault.)

Anyway, I hope soon to get the opportunity of seeing for myself what your Whippets and Greyhounds are like. I will go to England on June 17th and hope to arrive in

the U. S. A. in late June. From your magazine, it seems that both Chicago International and Santa Barbara have a good classification for the breed and I intend to go to both....

I look forward to seeing as many shows and kennels as possible. Jack Stone of the Storm warning Knls. wrote me a kind letter asking if I would visit him in St. Louis - he seems to have some nice black and whites. It has also been arranged that I shall see the Pennyworths and the Harbridge Knls...

Showing has been quite successful - Ch. Laguna Leader, Ch. Badgewood Nark Twain and Ch. Bojars Colette have all won CC's as well as several other of Leader's progeny. The racing season is just opening and the first big races are to be held in June. my first home bred litter after many years of exclusive showing is looking fine at six months old, unfortunately I will be away when they are first shown. Bohem Fiasko is extremely promising and I have kept the right to breed from her, as I have on four other puppies by my dogs, so there should be quite a lot of litters in future years.

I think that is all for now. Oh yes, I must say it was a very nice experience to judge in England * I had a formidable entry of 68 (without CC's as it was an Open show) at Camberley and many lovely whippets there. BOB was Ch. Russetwood Portia after a real tussle with Ch. Fleeting Flamboyant - both are very sound and very elegant and I feel sure esp. the dog would do well in the States, being an eye- catching chocolate brindle/white. I also judged Greyhounds and had an easy BOB in famous Ch. Shalfleet Starlight.

Gladys Culter, Hayward, California, writes, May 15, 1967 - We have been Elkhound breeders for 15 years and also have a Kees. We acquired our first Whippet about two years ago and just finished our first male and have four points on our bitch. They get along so well with the Elkhounds, and next year we hope to have our first litter.

Do have a bit of circuit news - our Elkhound got the group the last day out - so all in all the circuit was very worthwhile with what our little Whippet bitch did.

Walla Walla , Washington , K. C., April 28, 1967, Judge: 0. Carley Harriman. BOB - Almar-O-Princess Carole (Marshall & Simmons) 3 bitches entered R$: Highland's Hollypark Holly Richland , Washington K. C., April 29, 1967, Judge: Fred Hunt. BOB - Highland's Hollypark Holly (Cutter & Tangen) 3 bitches entered RB: Almar-O-Princess Carole Yakima Valley K. C., April 30, 1967, Judge: Win. Ackland. BOB, BOW, WD - Chantilly Journeyman (Woolley) BOS & NI - Highland's Hollypark Holly RB Almar-O-Princess Carole RD : Rims Kittle Sea Skiff (greenwood)

We are planning for George to try for his Canadian championship later in the summer and are also planning to do some showing in the Pacific Northwest * Next spring we will see how he fares for a Mexican championship. It is too early to tell how great a show dog he will be, but right now he seems to have potential though he lacks maturity (born 2-22-66), and perhaps sometime in 1968 he will have a real go at the top 10 Whippets - we have this in Elkhounds, and am keeping a list of all the Phillip's points in Whippets, Kees and Elkhounds, so anyone wanting information can get it from me and also from Popular Dogs.

Ann Gallup, Wayne, Illinois, writes - Do you include new champions in the NEWS? (Editor's note - Please send pedigree for "New Champions" section) If so, just want to tell you that our Pennyworth Truly Fair has finished at Mattoon with a major under Judge E. Very. She is two years old * bred by Pennyworth, sired by Ch.

Courtenay Fleetfoot out of Ch. Pennyworth Temptress. She is the dam of one litter - two of these puppies with points, and one with a Gr 3 from the puppy class. She was owner handled to all of her points.

Ken Hulsey, Evansville, Indiana, writes - Just a line to let you know we enjoy the WHIPPET NEWTS very much. We just finished our Humble Acre Man About Town in Obedience for his C. D. and we have two five month old puppies who are coming right along in their training. We are very interested in teaching them to race also. We just wrote Mr. Pegram for information about such. We had several breeds before we settled on the Whippets and we find them very fascinating, what else could you show in Obedience, conformation and race,

Don Pollack, Bronx, New York, writes, April 29, 1967 - I would like to join the American Whippet Club, however I notice that you must be endorsed by two active members of the Club.

In the time that I have owned my puppy (who is now 10 months old) I have never seen any one living near my home who even owns a Whippet no less is a member of your Club.

Could you give me any names of members of your Club who live in the Bronx? Furthermore if you have a membership of owners of Whippets in New York how come I have never seen or heard of Whippet racing anywhere in New York. Do you ever intend to try to activate the sport on the east coast? I would love to see Whippet racing, learn enough about how to train my dog and then enter him in the races but where on the east coast or in the New York area would I be able to learn about the training procedures eta? (Editors note - New York readers please contact Mr. Pollack at

125 West 195th Street , Bronx, N. Y. 10)468)

Jean Taylor, Ontario, Canada, writes - Mrs. Jean Taylor and Mrs. Lorna Hale together, will be coming to the Chicago International Show for the week end.

We are arriving early on 22nd of July for a short holiday and we will be staying at the Motel Lakeshore Holiday Inn on the Saturday night.

We are looking forward to meeting you and everyone and all the Whippets in the show. We hope to see the racing. We hope you will tell other Whippeteers to look for us.

Carol V. Wolf, Clarksville, Tenn., writes, May 2, 1967 - I have often thought of mentioning the following to you as perhaps being of interest to other Whippet fanciers. As soon as I became interested in Whippets, I wanted to find books about the breed, and I have only come up with the following two. If other readers know of anything further, I would certainly appreciate hearing of them.

The first book is, of course, the well known "The Popular Whippet" by C. H. Douglas Todd, published by ARCO Publishing Company, Inc., New York . The second book is "Whippets" by E. Fitch Daglish, an English imported book available from R. H. McElheney, Inc., 148 W. 103rd Street , Chicago 60628 , for $1.25. This second book has an excellent chapter on color inheritance in Whippets.

If you know of any other books which are available here, perhaps a listing could be published in the WHIPPET NEWS. (Editors note - Would someone please compile a complete list of breed books for such a listing?)


Please send your news, ads, reports, show results, new champions pedigrees, kennel reports and race results right away as we are starting on the next issue as soon as we can find a typist for the staff. For those of you who have made your yearly donations, there will be six issues credited for 1967.
