THE AMERICAN WHIPPET CLUB

 

Donated to the Whippet Community by Don Frames, Bardon Whippets


To The Members of the American Whippet Club -

Once again we are closing out a year of activity. Appropriately, the Editor of the Whippet News has suggested, in fact has gone to considerable effort to solicit year end reports from breeders, Officers of the Club, and others concerning their activities for the year. Hopefully, as she suggested, this issue of the News can stress achievement, progress, contributions, with a note of satisfaction o f well being, of good will among the members of the Club and generally the optimism that is associated with the season of Christmas, closing out good year and approaching a new one. Even though, this may be classified as being nostalgic or old fashioned, certainly out-of-step with some of the current unrest, controversy, general era of protestation, we challenge anyone to come up with something better. Progress and achievement is measured in terms of change for the better and since I could not come up with anything better I will oblige the Editor and try to make for progress in reviewing achievements of the American Whippet Club in 1969.

First of all, I believe one of our greatest achievements for 1969 was the fact that we were able to attract new members to increase our total to 160 plus. This is approximately 100 more than we had in the early 60's which, to me, is notable progress. These are People that are interested in and devoted to the enjoyment of the Whippet to the extent of becoming associated with us in our endeavors. To me, this denotes a healthy condition in the Club, indicating members of the Club would like to have others enjoy and share in the Whippet activities. Furthermore, the willingness of members to bring others into the Club to support what they would consider a worthwhile endeavor denotes a degree of wholesome pride and sense of achievement.

Secondly, the three Specialty Shows and 9 Supported Shows are being well attendee with ever increasing competition in the quality of conformation and showmanship. The highlight, of course, has to be the Western Specialty which attracted 107 Whippets - by far the most whippets that have ever been entered in any Specialty in the American Whippet Club. As we have indicated in the past, the West is a rapidly growing Whippet area. Naturally the environment for outdoor activities of racing and coursing in the Nest is much better over a greater period of time than in other parts of the country. Even though there can be much debate over whether one or two individual Whippets are better than those of years gone by, I believe, there is agreement that generally the Whippets are much improved over those in the past in all sections of the country.

Thirdly, and probably most importantly, the Whippet News has continued to prosper under its new management. Christine Cormany, Joan Frailey, Don Dye and others certainly merit the appreciation and thanks of all the membership for the superb job they are doing. The Whippet News is undoubtedly the greatest "image builder" of the American Whippet Club. Recent commentary by long-time breeders as well as readers from other countries have confirmed their renewed interest in the news. The News is, of course, no better then the material presented for publication with credit going to all contributors during 1969.

A resume of racing is being prepared by our Racing Secretary, Louis Pegram. In this report I would briefly like to comment on the growth in racing as a sport and family activity, and its potential contribution to the growth of the Club. As our affluence continues to grow, in this country as well as in the entire world, people will have more time for activities. Certainly having the family activity centered around the lovely, little, Whippet can contribute much to our economic development by providing the kind of home environment that makes for development of good respectable citizens. The gaming element of racing which was associated with manly sports of the past has given way to the enjoyment of all the family, sharing a sport with man's best friend, the best of which is the loving, sometimes impish, always alert and ready to run Whippet.

As President, with this report I wish to extend the thanks and appreciation of the entire Board to all those who have contributed their time, effort, as well as dollars to the activities of the Club. It is only through the unselfish contributions of so many willing, dedicated, hard workers, that the American Whippet Club is and can be successful. We also appreciate all of the contributions to the American Whippet Club activities by non-members and extend a kind invitation to them to become associated with us as members of the Club. Again, thanks to all of you for your making this a record achieving year for the American Whippet Club.

Respectfully Submitted November 5, 1969

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.

EYES—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 of 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.

Pennyworth Kennels, Newington, New Hampshire

I have watched this breed, THE WHIPPET, grow from a small handful to a great handful, from one or two breeders, to a great number of breeders all over the United States and Europe. I have watched this breed go from one or two dogs at an All Breed show to 30 or 40 dogs at these same shows. Since I started my kennel in 1945 (previously having bred other breeds before that time) I feel I have some qualifications to write along the lines I am about to embark.

The purpose of this article is to try to bring before the new breeder and those interested persons, my thoughts of the breed as it stands today and attempt to answer some of the many, many questions I have been asked over the years. I do hope that what I am about to say will be taken as constructive and as it is meant to be, an honest critique and its only purpose is to help those who want and need assistance in their breeding programs.

I started out in 1945 to find a Whippet, and at that time you were lucky if you saw one or maybe two at a show. I had read the Standard and thought I knew what I was looking for. Unfortunately, I found myself in a daze because of the lack of quality, the difference in type and the variance in size.

I was looking for a top quality show bitch to campaign and later breed from, but she was not easy to come by. The Standard calls for a bitch of moderate size between 18 and 21 inches. If you found a bitch within these limits, she wasn't for sale, so I ended up buying a bitch that was much too large, but had the qualifications of the leading paragraph. At this point I might add, that to this day, I have never regretted my decision as to the bitch or the breed.

A lot of water has gone under the bridge since then, and down through the years, as I look back, I find that we are still plagued by "Size", we still have great variance in type, our temperaments leave a lot to be desired and we have a few new bugs: CUT UP FRONTS, FLAT BACKS, BAD EARS, POOR PIGMENTATION, SIZE, and COLOR OF EYES!

At this point I ask that you re-read paragraph two!

Now that you have done so, I will continue.

SIZE

I personally feel that "Size" and type fit together. If you stick to type, the one you like and feel fits the Standard the closest, and set out to perpetuate this type, you will find that "Size" will conform to that particular line and that these dogs and bitches will be within a limit of each other. At least this has been my personal experience.

However, you must remember that the Whippet does not breed true to type and just because you breed a dog of 20 inches to a bitch of 19 inches, all the resulting puppies are not going to be 19-20 inches. Your problem is to stick to this planned type breeding for several generations and to breed type and QUALITY. Don't go scurrying off to a top winning dog or buy a puppy from a top winning bitch, just because they are the thing of the moment. Stop and THINK! Is it my type? Is it my quality? Is it my size? Does this animal really have what I need to better what I presently have? Remember, they too have faults, even though you may not see them — no animal is perfect! If they were, would we continue to go on?

I might add to the two preceding paragraphs by saying, that breeding dogs, to me, is a lot like cooking. One has to add a dash of this and that to make it look better or to get rid of something we do not desire. When you do this, do it by degrees, not all at once, if you can. Say you need a dark eye on your bitch and you nave found a black dog with eyes of ebony but he has a ring tail, a jew nose and bad ears. Don't use this dog since he has three outstanding faults and you have only one. Try to select a dog that comes as close to your bitch in her good points as you can. A dog should compliment your bitch for you to hold her good qualities in the resulting litter. It may take you years to correct some faults but if you persist you will win out.

CUT UP FRONTS

This is a very serious fault in the breed today! Unless you read your Standard carefully on "Briskey," "Forelegs," and "Shoulders" (in toto), you can easily misinterpret what a proper front should be. I am speaking of the chest area as seen looking at the dog head on. Under "Brisket" it says, "Very deep and strong, reaching as nearly as possible to the point of the elbow. Ribs well sprung but no suggestion of barrel shape. SHOULD FILL IN THE SPACE BETWEEN THE FORELEGS SO THAT THERE IS NO APPEARANCE OF A HOLLOW BETWEEN THEM" (photo 1).

(photo .1) ". . the brisket should fill in the space between the forelegs so that there is no appearance of a hollow between them". The dog pictured at right excels in this respect.

"The Whippet should convey an impression of beauty, quality, and balance and his muscular power and strength should be combined with great elegance and grace."

 

In other words, the chest should be well filled-in and not have any suggestion of what I call the "inverted vee" look. Under "Forelegs", it says "Straight and rather long, held in line with the shoulders and NOT set under the body so as to make a forechest." In other words, you do not want a chest on a Whippet like a Dachshund as viewed from the side. It should be rounded across the animals front with very little chest bone showing.

SHOULDERS

Now last, but certainly not least, in the Standard it says under "Shoulders", "Well laid back with long, flat muscles. Loaded shoulders are a very serious fault." This does tie in the structural parts of "Brisket" and "Forelegs" because without the proper shoulder, the whole entire front of the animal falls apart. The "Brisket" and the chest are interdependent with the correct construction of "Shoulders." I personally feel our shoulder blades, on many animals, are too short in length since the shoulder should he oblique and the blade carry to the spin and be closely set together at the top. If you do not have a proper shoulder, the neck of the animal will not come off the shoulder correctly, i.e., at the top, but it will come out of the chest and be ewed or "throaty" in front and very noticeable from the sideview. Needless to say it will make the animal appear short necked.

EYES, EARS, PIGMENTATION

On the subject of "Eyes'', "Ears" and "Pigmentation" — this is indeed a hard subject to write about and I do wish I had a better way than the written word to communicate with you, perhaps referring to photo 2 will help somewhat.

(photo 2) "Our Standard calls for the nose to be black. If the nose must be black, it should follow that the preferred color for the eye rims, etc., should be black!"

 

Our Standard calls for the nose to be black. So, if the nose must be black, it should follow that the preferred color for the eye rims etc., should be black! If all these trimmings are black, then to me, it should follow that the EYE itself should be as dark as possible. In a black dog they should be black, in a black and white dog they should be black. Why today do I see so many white Whippets (with either grey fawn or various shades of white and brindle markings) with such extremely light eyes? The Standard also says that the eye should be at least as dark as the coat color and I think perhaps in this area, the Standard is too permissive! Perhaps we are not being hard enough on this lovely trait and are letting the light eyes slip in and saying "Oh! The Standard says at least as dark as the coat color. It will get by." I know I have done it and will admit that I am wrong, but this is one area that we can correct by breeding for and adhering to a black eye in our Whippets regardless of the coat color.

The next thing on eyes is the SIZE of the eye. The Standard says under "Eyes", "Large, intelligent, round in shape." Do I need to say more???

EARS

How about "Ears"? Here I have an old gripe also. If I have heard it once, I have heard it a hundred times. "Oh! but he (or she) doesn't do that at a show." Now really, good people, if a Whippet uses its ears badly at home he is most certainly going to use them badly at a show. This problem of ears has already started to overrun the breed and if we are not careful of it, it will soon be impossible to breed out. You should at all times be aware of all these things when looking at your Whippets since they are as much a part of the balance, quality and type as is the rest of the dog. If he or she doesn't have a proper ear it can throw the entire picture out of balance as fast as a bad front. So from here on in let us be very critical of the ear regardless of whether we have one Whippet or a hundred. If you do not know what a proper Whippet ear should be, then take the time to find out. Do not ignore the subject!!

BACK

Now to the much disputed problem of FLAT BACKS. Tine Standard says, and I quote again, "Back strong and powerful rather long with a good arch over the loin creating a definite Tuck-up of the underline but covering a lot of ground." This and what it says about "Hindquarters" should make a very clear picture of the difference between an arch and a flat back. Yet I have seen more flat backed Whippets in the last few years than in quite some time, (photo 3).

(photo 3) " .. I have seen more flat backed Whippets in the last few years than in quite some time." Pictured is a typical example of the incorrect "flat back".

 

Our Standard is basically a good sound Standard if followed to the letter. I firmly maintain that the Whippet is not to blame for its faults, the human element is to blame and if you are going to breed any breed, you must be honest with yourself and not pull the wool over your eyes. You must be able to face up to the fact that errors are made but can be corrected and get on with the job of correcting them!!!

When you are buying, don't buy a pet type animal (which may be riddled with faults) and breed or show it. Let it be what you purchased, a pet. If you can't afford to buy a good one, then wait until you can. Very few breeders will turn away a sincerely interested person, just have patience. Don't think that just because the breeder may have been breeding for many years that he has scads of good ones lying around the kennels, no one breeds great ones in every litter. So, more often than not, patience is very necessary.

If you are breeding yourself, be very critical of your get, then and only then, will the best be produced in future litters. Do not rely on others to tell you what to do, make your own decisions and above all stick to TYPE. Look for QUALITY and BALANCE, be critical of your own and not of others!

On this note I shall leave you and I do hope that in some small way, I have helped to clear up some of the endless questions I have encountered over the years. See you at the shows!


ANNIE LAURIE WINS HER LAST RACE

When the sporting contingent of a whole nation goes stark raving crazy over the spectacle of a score of hounds chasing a mechanical jackrabbit, driven by electrical energy, around a half-mile oval track it is reasonable that the outsiders should dip into the genesis of the pastime.

In Armadale, Scotland, the fast whippet dog has always been to the coal miner what the racehorse is to the British swell. Women and children are second to the half hound, whose diet is prime steak. He gets the best of everything. A family man who owns a whippet considers a dog license on a par with a birth certificate.

It is not an uncommon sight in the cool of the evening to see a horny-handed coal miner escorting along the main street a slip of a dog carefully blanketed and wearing chamois pads on its precious feet. Armadale is Vanity Fair when a whippet following the leash comes dancing like thistledown along the thoroughfare. Good judges of dog flesh take their hats off to the owner; fanciers from the coal pits gather and speculate on the points of the racer; plungers make mental books and prepare for the next flight. Mothers with baby carriages give way to the hound, and all juveniles practically cease breathing.

Whippet racing has long been in vogue among the coal miners. It was they who brought the breed to its present high state of perfection. Not until recently has it come to be regarded as a topside sport for the elite. Its sudden popularity dates from the time when several years ago a promoter with a wise head brought down to Hurlingham, just outside of London, a carefully selected string of whippets -with their coal-dusted owners. It was a new sensation to the sporting gentry of England. The leaping shadows in pursuit of the mechanical hare, the rapidity of the betting, the antics of the men from Armadale, the thrill of the straining finish did the trick. Whippet racing took London by storm. The coal miners went mad sympathetically.

The noble thoroughbred was pitted in a speed contest against the coal miner's dog. Muntaz Mahal, a racehorse, did a specified distance at the rate of thirty-nin miles an hour against the whippet's thirty-six. The dog came into his own. Course were erected everywhere and whippets went up in price. They jumped from five pounds to ten, twenty, thirty - a hundred. One sold in London for four thousand pounds. Parks, stadiums, racetracks and open lots, long idle, were drafted for the whippets. Capitalists crawled out from under their hoards and supplied the sinews for development.

The investment throughout the empire will go into the millions of pounds. An outgrowth - equally exciting, it is claimed by those who know - is the sport of turning loose a pack of terriers on the trail of a mechanical rat. The courses are shorter, but the commotion that ensues makes up for the brevity of the chase.

So far as the greyhounds, the whippets and the terriers are concerned, "they're off" throughout the British Isles, and the coal miners are in on the ground floor.

I spent a most exciting evening at an Armadale straightaway track, where many of the fastest dogs in Scotland get their training. Whippet men from this region are persons of parts and speaketh by the card. They be oracles, and no man may gainsay them. Armadale owners, at the signal to "go," pitch their whippets down the course by the scruff of the neck and a tail hold. The dogs hit the turf at thirty miles an hour without missing stride. The goal is a fluttering kerchief. Everybody backs a favorite and much change circulates. Occasionally a bookmaker welshes and fans are treated to the spectacle of a desperate man breaking all records across the moor.

From an Armadale school teacher on my right I picked up a good story about a miner who owned Annie Laurie, a fast whippet that he had been training on selected beefsteak - "meat," said the pedagogue, "that should have gone to the man's family." The wife was ill but made no complaint. Shortly before the race the woman came to a point where rich meat broth was necessary to sustain her vitality. The miner saw the handwriting on the wall. He felt that the winning of the race would replenish his funds, but he couldn't feed the woman and the whippet beef­ steak at the same time. He took counsel with his son, a boy of twelve, and agreed that if the worst came to the worst the woman should have the meat and the whippet would be withdrawn at the last moment.

"But, laddie," said the father, "I canna bring mesel' to tak' the meat fra' the whuppet. Ye will ha' to do that." The boy took the precious morsel to his mother. What did the woman do but decline it. The father, torn between love of the dog and duty to the woman for the moment disappeared. By command of his heroic mother the son fed the whippet the last piece of meat and groomed the hope of the family for the supreme test.

When the race was called the youngster himself pitched the animal down the course and saw the finish, with his entry two lengths in the lead. Steak for the whole family! That whippet sold the next day for two hundred and ten pounds - a high price indeed. From the strain of the race Annie never recovered and the buyer, convinced finally that he had purchased a dog that had all but broken its heart in a last effort, returned the animal to the Armadale miner with the comment "Annie Laurie is a house dog, and belongs at home wit the wee children."

Even a soft coal cloud has a silver lining.

Our grand old man Ch. Rocket 's Torpedo CDX. (Ch. Whipoo's Spartarib of Meander- Whipoo's Sharp Focus CD) is now 11 years old. his daughter, Shilo's Agile Artemis out of Ch. Whipoo's Copy Cat, has completed her CDX. This represent the 4th in a direct line of Whippet Obedience holders. These 4 are Whipoo's Silken Elegance CD, Ch. Whipoo's Sharp Focus CD, Ch. Rocket's Torpedo CDX and Artemis. "Scamper" was the first Champion Whippet to obtain his CDX, It is also interesting to note that Ch. Whipoo's Whimsy, CD, owned by Anita Hopkins, and a great racing champion as well as an obedience title holder, was a litter brother to Sharp Focus, dam of "Scamper". I believe, although I am not certain, that a Whimsy son also has a CD.

Some day when I have more time I'll write an article about the biochemical and cellular significance of having 4 dogs representing 4 generations in the line with working degrees. It has to do with what happens to the DNA and RNA of the cell when it is trained and how molecular biologists think there is some evidence to indicate that this is passed on, but it may also be lost if the training is not continued.

AWARD OF MERIT

WHIPPET NEWS salutes the winners of this award.

This award is not easy to come by. It involves many hours of training, conditioning, and travel. National Race Meets are few an far between in some areas and there is always the "unexpected" turn of fate when a dog just a little bit faster outruns one needing maybe just one or two points to win that elusive 15th point required to be called A.R.M.

This award is cherished by the owners of the winners pictured herein, is it an indication of their dogs ability and the Climax to his achievement.

Pictures and pedigrees of the winners may help in future planning of those interested in breeding a dual-purpose type Whippet, as it is noted that nearly all of the dogs

who have won this award have points towards their Championship and two are already Champions. This clearly indicates that show and racing can and do go together.

CONGRATULATIONS to these winners.

FIRST WHIPPET IN AMERICA to accumulate the necessary 15 points to secure an AWARD OF RACING MERIT" Certificate.

Strathoak Spring Intrigue is a solid race dog by any standard. He was an outstanding puppy racer who quickly moved into Grade A as an adult. His style of leaving the starting box slowly, depending on his late speed to bring him victory, caused him to lone many very close races. Spring Intrigue was the typo of "spoiler" that could and does continue to beat the very top racers when he breaks the box with his field.

Spring Intrigue is a fawn brindle standing a short 21 1/2 inches at the shoulder with his best racing weight being 34 pounds. He is a powerful but smoothly built Whippet. He was shown three times, winning the Puppy Class at both the Midwest and. Eastern American Whippet Club Specialties and was Winners Dog for four points in the show ring as an adult. His dislike of being handled in the ring and great love for racing ended his show ring career early.

Spring Intrigue is an excellent coursing dog on Kansas jack rabbits and runs the circular track equally as well as the straight track. He is accident prone having a dent in his skull the size of a quarter, a badly scarred right front leg, neck skin much like alligator hide, all from a gang kennel fight while in Kansas. He broke his toe schooling and his toe has been removed. In spite of age he continues to add honorary Award of Racing Merit Points in 1068-69, after winning the Award of Racing Merit Certificate in 167. If Friendly, his pet name at home, has his way in 1970, you will again find him racing in Grade A.

Ember's record is all the more remarkable when one considers she didn't run in an A.R.M. meet until she was 3 weeks short of her 3rd birthday and also that she missed both the 1967 and 1968 summer race season as she was bred OA both those occasions. Ember proved. that a good small whippet can be outstanding. Before the first litter, her racing weight was 23 pounds.

Shown only sparingly, Ember won her Canadian Championship in 4 straight shows, was twice Best Canadian Bred Hound and once Best Canadian Bred in Show.

Of the 3 adults surviving from her first litter, 2 are being shown and need.

but 1 point each for their show championship One of these, Emberson of Course, has won a Hound Group 1st, winner of the Award of Merit Certificate and eras ranked No. 1 racer in 1968. From her second litter, Cinders of Course has

won one puppy race meet and tied for top honors in another. Several of Cinder's littermates showed well in the recent Marysville, Ohio race meet.

Ember is now residing with her new co-owners, Victor and Margaret Renner. She is soon to be bred to Ch. Renfield Little Rogue.

1969 SPECIALTY WINNERS

The year 1969 saw records broken at two Specialty shows, one in Canada and one in the U.S. By the tire this issue reaches you, the last AWC Specialty of the year will be over. Plans for Specialties in 1970 are already under way in all areas of the U.S. and Canada. Indications are that more records will fall, so it looks like 1970 will be a most interesting and competitive year to watch.

WOULD YOU BELIEVE 1,000 IN 1970?

by Louis Pegram

October of 1970 will mark my 40th year in Whippets and 42 years with racing and coursing Greyhounds. It is extremely difficult to put in words the many changes that have taken place in the world of Whippets during the past 39 years. Just why the Whippet is not a more popular breed with the dog-loving public has long been the subject of many disputed opinions among Whippet breeders. During these past years, there have been periods when the Whippet seemed almost certain to grow in popularity as a true multi­purpose breed with the American public. Then interest would wane for one reason or another with certain Whippet breeders or Whippet clubs, and again there would be dormant periods of growth and interest in the breed. It can be truthfully said that the Whippet, during the period 1920 through 1960, was not a breed judged on his own merit, but a breed controlled by the many varied opinions of a very, very few owners and breeders. There have been numerous occasions during the past 39 years that I have made the statement, "When we register 1,000 Whippets or more per year, then the Whippet can truly take his rightful place in the realm of pure-bred dogs based on his true ability."

The American Kennel Club records show that in 1930 - 54 Whippets were registered, 1940 - 77, 1950 - 80, and 1960 - 184. The Whippet population was so very small in the U.S.A. following the depression of the 1930's that the American Kennel Club opened their stud book of registrations to the Whippet on all unregistered Whippets approved by Miss F. Julia Shearer and your writer. Even with this relaxing of requirements, registrations did not increase greatly.

At the same time the American Kennel Club was registering less than 80 Whippets per year, the Maryland Whippet Breeders Association, Baltimore, Maryland , had accurate records and up to three-generation pedigrees on over 300 Whippets some of which were registered with the American Kennel Club. The Maryland Whippet Breeders Association was made up of Whippet owners who bred, showed, and raced Whippets. When night trotting races were legalized in Maryland, this organization fell apart with the discontinuance of Whippet racing operating under local county option in several areas surrounding Baltimore, Maryland, and Washington, D. C. During the following years, interest in Whippets continued at a slow pace as clearly indicated by American Kennel Club registration figures.

The Whippet in England has enjoyed greater early growth in popularity than has the Whippet in America. The Kennel Club's Stud Book ( England) showed 1528 Whippets registered in 1960 versus 184 in America for the same year. Here again there are probably many opinions for this great spread in the Whippet population between these two countries. Factually, some of the major reasons would be that the English look to the Whippet as a true pet, while certain hard-core American breeders had their own divided opinions on size, appearance of the Whippet, who should own a Whippet, how the Whippet should be used, etc. The results were that the almost unknown Whippet in America received more negative publicity than factual publicity advising the public of the many merits of the Whippet.

The last ten years has seen the Whippet move into a more prominent spot in the pure-bred dog world. The very small number of Whippets in America has made the job of expanding interest in the Whippet extremely slow and on occasions difficult. The increased number of all-breed dog shows has made the Whippet a very desirable dog for exhibition purposes. The expanded American Whippet Club program of three specialty shows and nine supported entry shows has brought about a closer understanding among those Whippet breeders who exhibit in the show ring. The West Coast 1969 American Whippet Club Specialty drew an all-time record for this organization of 106 Whippets. It is my belief that more Whippets are shown in proportion to the number of Whippets registered than is the case with any other breed registered with the American Kennel Club. This speaks especially well for the growth of the Whippet population in America from a quality standpoint.

Whippet racing has held its own during the past five years, but there has been no great increase in the number of Whippets racing or in new local groups offering Whippet racing. Historically, most local Whippet groups, regardless of their activities in the breed, have had great problems in maintaining organization and support of their membership. Perhaps Whippet owners and breeders are no worse than other local breed groups in maintaining organization, growth, and unity. Until such a time, however, as those people interested in the Whippet, whether it be as a race dog, show dog, or as a pet, can learn to live together for the betterment of the breed, progress will be limited.

Whippet racing has shown improvement from the standpoint of better racing animals. No great improvement has been noted in many areas on constructive expansion of race meetings, improving racing equipment, or in securing a great number of breeders, not one- or two-dog Whippet owners, who take interest in replacing their racers who are no longer of racing quality. It must be remembered that Whippet racing is highly competitive. Whippet racing should be based on factual performance with little personal opinion or personal advantage involved. It requires many more Whippets to make a successful race meeting than is the case to have a successful show or obedience entry.

Interest in obedience is showing an increase with Whippet owners. It is now clearly indicated that certain Whippets do respond quickly to obedience training without interfering with their requirements to be competitive in the show ring or on the race track.

The real growth in Whippets can be expected when there is a realistic demand for quality pet Whippet puppies. The demand for Whippet puppies is increasing in certain areas with California and the heavily populated East Coast showing the most progress. There were numerous cases in certain areas during 1969 where well-bred above-average Whippet puppies were advertised on a long-term basis at Very reasonable prices; yet, there was no demand for these attractive youngsters. In most cases you can sell Whippet puppies if you try hard enough; but the uninformed public, who knows nothing of the many merits of the Whippet, is not knocking down doors of Whippet breeders demanding Whippet puppies for pet purposes.

It is my belief we will finally register 1,000 Whippets with the American Kennel Club in 1970. The American Kennel Club registered 680 Whippets in 1966, 655 in 1967, 806 in 1968, and 504 from January through July of 1969. This very steady growth during the past two years, sparked by a very strong demand for young Whippets of show quality, would indicate that 1,000 registrations for Whippets in 1970 is a very definite possibility.

1,000 is not necessarily a magic number in Whippets. This number is, however, a realistic basis to increase interest in the breed that will give us additional needed Whippets to improve the number and quality of race Whippets, the needed extra source of supply of quality Whippets to secure additional prestige in the show ring, and most important enough Whippets in America to let the pet-owning public realize there is such a versatile breed as the Whippet.

The American Whippet Club in 1969 had its largest and most enthusiastic membership ever. Membership and Whippet population seemed to be about equally spread between the East, Midwest, and West Coast. This is an extremely healthy situation.

The Whippet News, edited by Mrs. Christine Cormany, 24819 Eshelman, Lomita , California , continues to be the major factor in communications between those people who are interested in improving the breed. It seems most important, each time you sell a puppy or meet someone who is interested in Whippets, that you have them subscribe to the 'Whippet News, which is the official publication of the American Whippet Club.

The period between 1970 and 1980 with the thoughtful, cooperative support of modern-day Whippet owners/breeders gives every indication that the Whippet will become a more major factor in dogs, registered by the American Kennel Club. It is my hope that breeders will continue to promote the breed in keeping the Whippet a true sporting type sight hound who should be a combination of show dog, race dog, and pet.


NO. CALIF. WHIPPET FANCIERS ASSOC.
NAT 'L. POINT AWARD OF MERIT RACE MEET

Pleasanton , Calif.
October 19,1969

Southern Invaders Ambush the North - Lance Nabs his First National Point Race Win.

Sunday, October l9, 1969 marked a day of high achievement for west Coast Whippet Fanciers. A highly successful Whippet Match and Obedience Trial, along with a special Movement Class", was followed by a thrilling rational Point Race meeting. The meet was held on the beautiful race track at Alameda County Fair­grounds. The ground was heavy after a down pour of deluge proportions during the week, but after a nice harrowing job by the groundskeeper, all that were affected were the actual race times.

WHIRLAWAY'S MAGNIFICE NT LANCE romped to four high point race victories to emerge number one for the day with 4 Award of Merit points. It was his first big win, and one would easily surmise, not his last. MADCAP DUSTY ROAD and C7. STRATHOAK SU NSTAR had a merry battle for second place and the other two award of merit points. Dusty came out the best by edging Sunstar in their last two high point meetings. Sunstar won his first "B" race by going from the 41 box to the outside lane behind dogs and then flashing speed to romp hare. HOLLYPARK GAMBLING MAN completed a 1-4 sweep by the Southern invaders by running slightly off the pace of the 3 leaders, The Northern contingent had to be content with some good performances on the part of M ERCUR Y' S APACHE TEARS, coming back to his Santa

Clara form to finish 5th. SNOOP THE DROOP gaining 6th of a very strong performance, tieing with PETER WHEAT who was in the Top Ten for the seventh straight time

Peter 'beat the box" to finish second to lance in the first high point race (dangerous on the front end a s they say). FRISCO, NICHOLAS, SHALOM and GOLDEN GAZELLE all made admirable efforts during the day.

Walter Matheny was surprised by a birthday party before the races, and champagne and cake were served. Walter made up for lost time by doing just a great job on the P.A. system keeping the racers moving at double-tim. Four programs with 30 dogs were run off in 2 1/2 hours.

The N.C.W.F.A. wishes to express its gratitude to all the members who-donated their time and efforts in presenting three National Point races in seven weeks!

  RENFIELD LADY O ' LAZEBROOK AND SCRAM WHYSPER TIE FOR FIRST PLACE HONORS AT MARYSVILLE NATIONAL RACE MEET, October 25 & 26, 1969.

By Day Backman

A large entry, extremely keen competition, and glorious weather were all "the order of the day" for the 1969 closing session of the Mid-West racing season. An entry of 73 starters participated in four complete heats of National Racing Rules and Regulations in addition to four special 250 yard races.

It is always good to see many familiar faces and equally nice to see new faces. At Marysville, we were particularly happy to welcome Mr. Paul Fraser, British Columbia , and. his dog EMB ERSON OF COURSE. "Sonny" is no stranger to any of

us and especially to the Marysville Meet as he very royally clobbered all of us with a most spectacular win last year,

RENFIELD LADY O 'LAZEBROOK and SCRAM WHISPER tied with 25 points each and both bitches were in excellent conditions. A run-off resulted with LADY on top as she is more lure conscious than WHISPER. WHISPER quit the lure about 25 feet from the finish-line, thus ending the contest. EMBERSON finished second high point and was the Opposite Sex winner. I have seen SONNY run in Marysville and recently in Santa Barbara and felt that he was not giving his all in Marysville until the last race. RYHN NEY HARLEQUIN VIC and RIVERDALES" CHARMAINE tied for third high point racer, VIC ran his first three heats well but jockeyed poorly in the fourth heat. FAIT will be a top contender next year, this bitch is still a puppy and with a bit more experience, will be hard to beats She breaks well and has a long natural and easy stride, SCRAM I PM FIRST, CHANGE IN DESTINY and SPRINGDALE SATIN DELI NE will bear watching next year. DESTINY cut to his pad and had to be scratched in the fourth heat with 14 points. TITAN H030, a marvelous running dog, was once again the victim of his ails, he had a second toe removed this summer and because of soreness, had to be scratched.

Bill Backman, Sr., ran the Marysville Futurity again this year and dogs with asterisks after their name, made full payment and were Futurity contestants. Dill has a report on the Futurity elsewhere in this issue so won't elaborate except to clear a misunderstanding. Any adult racing Whippet wishing to enter the Futurity must make his payments to the Futurity Supervisor, but he must also enter the Race Meet, Futurity payments do no insure entry to the Meet and without Meet entrance, you are not eligible for the Futurity°

A big thank you to all of you who helped run a very smooth-moving meet.

1969 WHIPPET RACE SUMMARY

by Louis Pegram

1969 will go on record as a year of exciting Whippet racing with emphasis on quality racing. There were 16 race meetings held under Official Rules and Regulations for National Whippet Racing with one November meeting yet to he reported. Northern California showed the greatest gains in national organized Whippet race meetings, while local Whippet groups located in the state of Indiana showed the greatest growth in local activity. Other sections of the country showed no great increase in any type of Whippet race activities over previous years.

Sectional competition showed EMBERSON OF COURSE dominating racing in the Pacific Northwest, while CH PINETCPS OPENING KNIGHT was the top racer in California. These two speedsters met at Santa Barbara, California, with CH. PINETOPS OPENING KNIGHT showing to a slight advantage over EMBERSON OF COURSE

The Midwest was loaded with Grade A racers in 1969. The great campaigner, TITAN HOBO, again proved an easy winner at Chicago and continued his winning ways until old injuries again slowed down his great speed. RENFIELD LADY

O ' LAZEBROOK moved into Grade A competition with a victory at St, Louis, Missouri , and tied for high honors at Marysville, Ohio. FORTUNA FAIR ANNET showed brilliant speed in winning high point honors at Champaign, Illinois, and tied for high score with the very fast, but inconsistent, BRENDA'S CHAMPAGNE, at Cincinnati, Ohio. CAESAR was the winner at Antioch, Illinois, while the veteran Award winner, SPRING INTRIGUE, continued to win his share of Grade A and high point races. The race bitch, SCRAM WHISPER, when she runs an honest race, appears to outclass any Whippet she meets in regular races run under Official Rules and Regulations for National Whippet Racing.

There was no standout racer in 1969 that might be considered as the top American racer. EMBERSON OF COURSE and CH. PINETOPS OPENING KNIGHT both competed in the Midwest. They both turned in fine performances, but did not defeat the top Midwest racers. The top Midwest racers did not take part in West Coast racing. 1969 must go down in the record books as a year of outstanding performances by many of the top grade racers, but no one racer could establish his or her superiority as a true national track champion.

Puppy racing was also outstanding in number of puppies racing as well as quality of puppy racing. Puppy races in the Midwest are superior in performance to the adult Grade C races of some five years past. The extension of the age limit for puppies to 14 months has done much to up-grade puppy racing. The three youngsters who advanced most rapidly when moving into adult racing in 1969 were RIVERDALE CHARMAINE, CHANGE IN DESTINY, and BRENDA'S BRANDY.

1969 saw four additional Whippets earn their Award of Racing Merit Certificates. These outstanding racers are CH. MARIAL'S JELLYBEAN, C.D., CAESAR, EMBERSON OF COURSE, and the first female to join this select group of racers, CAN. CH. ROCK-A-BYE EMBER OF COURSE. Total Award of Racing Merit winners, covering the period 1967 through 1969, now number eight.

It would appear the following racers stand an excellent chance of joining this select group in 1970: PENFIELD LADY O'LAZEBROOK, WHIRLAWAYS MAGNIFICENT LANCE, FORTUNA FAIR ANNET, BRENDA'S CHAMPAGNE, and SCRAM WHISPER. Virtually everyone in the Whippet industry would greatly enjoy seeing CANADIAN and AMERICAN CH. SING'N LITTLE BLUE GIRL win her Award of Racing Merit Certificate. This little bitch has great speed as indicated in her battle for high honors with PINETOPS OPENING KNIGHT at Santa Barbara in 1968. Time may have passed this fine little competitor by, but we will be rooting for her in 1970.

Those people operating race meetings under Official Rules and Regulations for National Whippet Racing deserve much credit for the hard work that goes into making a successful race meeting. Trophies in most cases were most attractive; starting boxes are now very similar in type; and lure pacing on the whole was good. We still have numerous failures based on equipment break­down and every effort is being made to overcome this problem.

It would be well for all owners, who enjoy Whippet racing, to review results of race meetings on a point basis, as well as results of a Whippet's performance, in each of his four races. This information, plus Award of Racing Merit points, gives a factual picture of Whippet racing as it existed in America and British Columbia in 1969.

Following are results of The Award of Racing Merit Program for the last six months of 1969:
