CAN. CH. RINGO'S SONNY DAZE OF COURSE, AM. & CAN. F.CH.
Taking after her lovely mother, Am. Ch. Bardon Faded Finery, Daisy finished her Canadian show title easily, with a Group 2nd from the classes. Specialed lightly, she won two strong Hound Group 1st. Daisy has American points, including one major.
Daisy started running at 4 years of age, and showing some of the speed of her famous father, Ch. Emberson of Course ARM, she finished both her Can and Am. Field Ch. in 12 months. No easy feat, considering she took time out to present us with a lovely litter of six. She is currently tied as Canada's number two lure coursing whippet.
We would like to thank all the Can. and Am. whippets, especially those in Calif., for giving Daisy the thrill of competing with them. Special thanks to Ken and Vanelle Reynolds, for all their help and encouragement.
Watch for Daisy's offspring, Swiftsure Happy Daze, Arthur's Legacy and Ragtime Galatea, by our Am. Can.Ch. Marial's King Arthur -- they're worth watching for !!

PUPPIES available out of Pi ex Enticing-Stoneleigh Star of Grovenor. A fabulous litter concentrating on Whirlaway and bringing Barney up front by 4 generations of Grovenor breeding on top and 5 generations Stoneleigh and Grovenor breeding on bottom.
All of our whippets are carefully inbred and or line-bred on the ones we consider to be the great immortals: Ch. Mor Shor Whirlaway, Ch. Courtenay Fleetfoot of Pennyworth, Ch. Greenbrae Barn Dance, Ch. Fleeting Falcon, some Stoney Meadows and the Seyberne dogs.
A magnificent, superbly sound young hound of great intelligence, PI is about to make his presence felt in the ring as well as at stud. With fantastic reach and a powerful true driving rear, he is always in perfect balance as he flows along.

" SHADOW " REMEMBER ME ?
A litter sister to Ch. Westgate The Ch. Westgate Sorcerer,
I've been retired awhile, devoting my time to being a "family member", and to earning the title of 4-H Obedience Champion in Tulare County two years in a row.
Show photo was taken at 14 months ---at 4 years now, I'm living proof ---"we don't get older, we get better.
"Shadow" will soon be bred to Ch. Arrian's Topaz 'N Gold Dust. And how do you spell this breeding? REACH, BALANCE, MOVEMENT! (and ROLAIDS if it's "no show").

BOB 'N HARLIQUIN
CH. FOLQUIN AVOCET, F.CH. X RUNNER'S MERRY LIGHTFOOT
"QUIN" finished up his Championship in three weeks with three majors under Tom Rainey, Herman Cox and Forest Hanson, skill fully handled by Pam Stage. Thanks also go to Maurice Baker, Dr. Anton Musladin and Robert Ward, for his additional points. Also Lynnette Schelling who awarded him the Bred By Exhibitor Class at the Santa Barbara Specialty this summer over an entry of 10.
"QUIN" also has completed half of the requirements for his Mexican Championship, by taking the Breed both days at Mexicali Shows. Then a Group ! under Australian Judge, Mr. Alex W. Price and a Group III under Mrs. Cynthis Guzevich.
"QUIN" our first home-bred champion, is also ARM pointed plus being in training for his C.D.. A polite, well mannered pet, a protective watch-dog and a bed-mate for my seven tear old son, he exemplifies all the traits that are desired in any dog.
M-O-V-I-N-G into 1978...

PLUMCREEK WHIPPETS PROUDLY PRESENTS:
Finished at the American Whippet Club Midwest Specialty August 28, 1977. Going BOW and BOS over Specials under noted breeder-judge, Margaret Newcombe. Who is quoted as writing, - " My BOW and BOS was my winners dog who is truly all Whippet, he is sound as a bell with no pastern or shoulder problem, he is a keen dog with a lovely temperament as he did not wilt with the heat and gave his all right to the end. He is what all of us should look for as he, I'm sure, will be a quality stud dog, a great showman and am sure he can run because he is all heart."
Shearwater now resides with his new owners, Mr. and Mrs. V. Nunn, Gambit Whippets, Ontario, Canada. Our congratulations to the Nunn's and best of luck in the future.

ROYAL LOOK'S GREAT EXPECTATIONS
It has been a good year for Royal Look Kennels. Edward finished his championship, won a number of breeds and had some group placements. He is shown winning breed at Rio Grande, New Mexico under breeder-judge Pat Speight.
We also have had the joy of a life time with one of Royal Look's home-bred dogs, CH. MISTY MOOR'S ROYAL HUNTSMAN winning a Best in Show. Thanks to all of the judges that made it possible.
Edward has proven himself as a sire-producing puppies that have his elegance, exceptional color and excel in movement. We are looking forward to showing his puppies in 1978. He is at stud to approved bitches.
ROYAL LOOK has some exceptional puppies available:
Litter #1 by Ch. Misty Moor's Chalmondoley out of Royal Looks Smokey Topaz (Ch. Mor Shores Top Flight ex Marials Mystic).
Litter #2 by Royal Legacy's Royal Look out of Ch. Royal Looks Mystic
Royal Legacy's Royal Look is an exceptional grandson of Ch. Royal Look's Mystic and should make a name for himself in the ring and as a sire.

Of course, it is during his daily run in a nearby park with his best friend, Charlie (my son), that he really comes into his own, as you can see by the picture.
Charlie and I are delighted with this whimsical creature, and so glad to join those of you who already know what a super addition to the family a Whippet can be.
