Our great appreciation to Lynne Underwood for allowing permission to preserve this 1970 Whippet Yearbook on the AWC Website.
Dear God, if You could only spare the time
If You could help in any way, I would be glad

So please, dear God, give him a place to wait

GREAT CIRCLE TAMARA U.D.
Sire - Meander Pilot
Novice Degree - October 1962 Open Degree - April 1964
In the words of Mrs. Birmingham:
"Tammie was a rare gem to train - she had, but to see to conquer. She learned by observation - demonstrate an exercise before her - unbelievable but true - she mastered it - a little too eagerly at times."
"Often her exuberance was a bit much - like the time she not only took the correct jump - but also sailed over the ring rope 'n over the heads of the spectators as well."
