Our Specialty winning bitch was busy in 1983...
In the whelping box in April, and making her debut on the NPR track at the Santa Barbara races. (Wow, Dee and Gem both loved it). She'll be even busier in 1984, adding the oval track and the lure coursing field to her already busy schedule.

LITTER CO-BRED BY:
BEST IN MEET
1983 has been a good year for Wyndsor Whippets. Our Trilby/Toro litter made an exciting debut to National Point Racing. Trylson of Wyndsor, ARM became the 1983 National Race Champion. His litter mates, Dynasty of Wyndsor, ARM, Texas Contender of Wyndsor, ARM and Windward Blue of Wyndsor were all meet winners. A tragic accident took the life of Windward Blue at age 16 months. This outstanding young ster was owned, loved and missed by Dave and Tisha Burt.
The other star of Wyndsor this past year was "Quantas". He became the 1983 NOTRA Champion and also won several NPR meets.

NORTH TEXAS WHIPPET CLUB
THE YEAR 1983 AT A GLANCE
For the NTWC is was another busy year! The show calendar saw us sup portive in March and September with whippets and trophies at the Texas Kennel Club, Fort Worth Kennel Club and Trinity Valley Kennel Club shows.
Our National Point Races got off to a fine start early April, then came September's two day race and our first over-50 entry race the Saturday following Thanksgiving! (52 entrants to be exact.) More out-of-state
Lure coursing caught the interest of some members this year, and Charlie Maxwell, who is Chasmax Whippets, now has two field champions in his ken nel: Lark of Jandall, F. Ch. and Rockhill's Texas Ranger of CCM, F. Ch. Robert Rocha's dog, Regal's Hot Foot Dancer, F. Ch. and LCM, has a very special honor to be the first dog in Texas to earn the title, Lure Courser of Merit! That's quite an accomplishment and congratulations to Robert
and "Spud". (That's Regal's call name.) "Spud" is out of Ch. Gypsy's Concho of Rockhill, 8 1/2 years old, owned by the Kochs and Karen John ston and Karen's bitch, Ch. Gypsy's Chantilly Lace, deceased. Several other Texas dogs are nearing their field championship title, and hope fully in '84's review we can brag about them!
Our dog activities for '84 are soon to begin, so here's wishing a win ning year to all!
Sincerely, Barbara Koch
OK, FRIENDS, YOU STILL KNOW WHO I AM, DON'T YA', BUT LOOK WHO CAME INTO THE PICTURE TO JOIN ME IN THE WINNER'S CIRCLE . . . "TEXAS CONTENDER OF WYNDSOR, ARM", IN HIS FIRST YEAR OF RACING HE ACHIEVED HIS ARM CERTIFICATE AND IS A NPR WINNER, TOO!
1983 Annual Report
In 1983 the NCWC continued to grow quite successfully. At our annual awards banquet, and what a momentus occasion it was, we honored 16 new champions. Every category of Whippet activity was represented -- 5 AKC show champions, 4 obedience champions, 2 racing champions, 2 oval track champions and 3 lure - coursing champions. The members can be extremely proud of these outstanding achievements.
Another highlight of 1983 occured in April when the NCWC hosted the AWC Annual General Membership meeting. During that weekend Betty Fell judged a record entry of Whippets at the local Chief Solano Kennel Club Show. There was also a fine entry at both the National Point Race meet and the Oval Track meet. Despite such atrocious weather our members and our events prevailed.
Our 4th of July weekend proved again to be a huge success. We had tremendous entries at all 3 events. Jo Gore judged Whippets at our match and did a commend able job. The members of the NCWC were greatly saddened when Jo decided to move back and join her family in North Carolina. She is greatly missed.
For Martha Fielder 1983 was also a very good year. She distinguished herself and Crestfield Kennel by receiving 3 AKC show championships on her dogs. Now that's incredible. But that's not all---Kathy Kelly got 3 AKC obedience titles. Congratulations to both Martha and Kathy.
Again the NCWC dogs excelled in both National Point and Oval Track racing. Two outstanding dogs, Cimarron and Corky were both in top contention when mid-season they came down with injuries. They still finished high in the 1983 standings.
The new racing star for the year however, is Quantas of Wyndsor. He challenged late in the year and finished top Oval Track race dog. He also finished number 7 in National Point racing. Congratulations to his happy owner, Ken Lee.
Lure-coursing overall was highly successful and we had good entries at all 3 courses. Kathy Kelly did her typical excellent job of promoting and coordinating these events.
1983 was busy, as you can well imagine. Our success proves it.
Looking ahead at the 1984 schedule, it appears that we have the same potential for success. Best of Luck to everyone.
The Ashen One With Blue Eyes
By Gene Jacobs
Numerous people have given me reasons why dilution shouldn't be censured or penalized, and briefly, some of the reasons have been: an animal sees as well with light eyes, as with dark eyes; a dilute colored animal runs and functions as well as a dog of equal make up which is not; why should a dog's color cause it to be faulted; what's unattractive about a dilute. Well, all those reasons are more or less true, being in the eye of the beholder, but the fact remains, dilu tion is a meaningful step toward the total loss of pigment, and it should be one of the important features taken into consideration before a breeding is conducted. Breeding "Lucite" and "Crystal" perpetuates the dilute factor, and eventually, you will probably wonder where the color went.
To illustrate how important pigment is, I recently received a note from a breeder/judge of Doberman Pinschers, and in her note, she informed me that one of her bitches recently whelped a litter, and one of the female puppies in the litter is all white with blue eyes. Almost assuredly, the white Dobe puppy with
Since misunderstanding and ignorance about dilution seems to be as re current as the design on wallpaper, I will briefly outline what constitutes dilution. Blue and fawn colored Doberman Pinschers are dilute specimens of the breed, but because they are less popular and less seen, are slightly less involved in passing on the dilute color factor. However, the "red" Doberman Pinscher, as well as the black variety which has light eyes, are popular and the most often bred and exhibited of the various colors, and those two varities carry the dilute color factor and are probably the most guilty of perpetuating the dilute color factor. Since Doberman breeders color cross in their breeding, and they have been doing so for years, the dilute color factor is well established in the breed - so well established, it might be almost impossible to eradicate. An animal's coat color is sometimes a give away sign it is a dilute, but that is not always a truism because all white or black animals might not be dilute. If it is white, and has black eyes, eye rims, nose leather and pads, and pigment is evidenced on the skin, it probably isn't a dilute animal; if it is white, with light colored features, it is probably a dilute. Regarding black animals, it's the same formula, and if it has a light eye, it is almost assuredly an animal
which carries the dilute color factor. Regarding the "red" Doberman, almost everything about most Dobes of that color indicate it is a dilute animal - light eyes, pink eye rims, flesh colored nose leather - all the coloration shared with brown Poodles, Irish Water Spaniels, Chesapeake Bay Retrievers, which are all animals displaying the dilute color factor, for all have light eyes, eye rims, nose leather and lips. There are animals which cannot be clearly classified as dilute, which are animals which display the tendence toward dilution - the eye is "dark" but not black, the eye rims are not pink, but of slight color, but not black, and if it is a white animal, it might lack skin pigment spots here and there. There are pink, gray, silver and blue fawns, and they almost always are dilute animals which have light eyes, eye rims, nose leather and nails, the same applies to brindles which are of that same base coat color, with an overlay of the striped pattern which might be "dark", but it isn't black.
Unfortunately, Doberman breeders have never viewed the "red" specimen as a dilute animal, in spite of the light eye, flesh colored nose and pink eye rims, which should have told them all these years it is a dilute color, and stop spelling it as something else. To complicate matters more, far too many people have the erroneous belief that dilution accompanies poor type or it is only in animals of such sub-standard make up, the animal will self destruct or because it is so poor, no one will breed to it. Of course that is not a truism, and some very splendid dogs are and have been dilute - they were or are the walking breed STANDARD - their chief fault is the fact they might be diluted animals, which is, in my opinion, an important fault from a breeder's point of view, just as type, undesirable or desirable, shoulders, correct or not correct, or rear quarters, unacceptable or acceptable, are generally viewed as important features to consider before a breeding is conducted.
There was a time when one could exhibit dogs with one descended testicle, but as a breeder, I felt it was my responsibility not to exhibit or breed to an animal with that fault - it was unnecessary there be a rule which prevented me from doing it. However, a great many breeders apparently didn't view it with that stance, and operated on the belief that if it isn't singled out in the STANDARD as a fault or disqualification, they are removed from blame or concern; when and if it appears in the STANDARD as a fault or disqualification they will deal with it. Well, apparently things became so bad, the A.K.C. had to come forward and make it a blanket disqualification in all breeds because the problem had become so common. After they did so, the testicle problems among breeds started to lessen, and it's my unfounded belief that, today, it is no longer the problem it formerly was. The same will happen regards dilution - when it becomes a serious nough problem in all breeds, the A.K.C. might make dilution a blanket fault or disqualification and when and if it does, dilution will probably cease being the problem it is.
After I received the note from the Dobe breeder/judge, I typed a letter to that individual regarding the dilute color factor - my letter was not too unlike the article I recently mailed to you. After the breeder/judge received my letter, she telephoned long distance because she wanted to explain some things which weren't in her note, or were not made clear in the note. Though the following information does not change the information I sent you regarding the white Dobe too much, it changes it slightly . . .
1. There have been numerous white Dobes whelped, and the bitch my breeder/ judge friend is rearing, was not whelped by one of her bitches, or whelped on her property. It was one of several, acquired by the D.P.C.A., "farmed" out to picked people in different parts of the country to rear and document the results.
2. The white Dobe arrived with cut ears and docked tail; it is almost ideal size, has excellent bone and substance. There is trace color down the spine - a tint of biscuit or cream color.
3. Those involved in genetics have viewed these white Dobes; some have different beliefs or opinions than others regarding the likelihood they are dilute or albino animals - one believes it's albino, several do not. It's my belief it's a dilute, and make nothing else about it, especially since I've learned there is a tint of trace color along the spine, coupled with the eye color and nose leather color. It has white nails.
4. I am to receive vast information soon. In the meantime, I've mailed the Dobe breeder/judge the article I sent you, which I read over the phone to that individual - she thought it very good, interesting and thorough.
There are several things to consider regarding the white Dobes. One of the animals which was acquired by the D.P.C.A. indicated yellow flakes in the eye - that's got to be dilute, and maybe one which has eyes which will eventually turn yellow. It's the FIRST time the Dobe people have ever thought of dilution, chiefly because I suggested that's what it is, and it's not the albino factor. My friend's white Dobe will be bred to a dark eyed black, if it can be found; another will be bred to a blue; the third white bitch to a fawn - the results to be documented. It's my belief that most breeders who are fifty and over years of age, react or have reacted differently - kill them at birth, say nothing, view it as bad breeding; it's those under forty years of age who view it differently - interesting, explore it, talk about it, learn from it.
In breeds where there isn't choice (Irish Water Spaniels), it's accepted - if "you" want that breed, you accept it as dilute, for there is nothing other wise; if it bothers you that much, don't acquire it. In all likelihood, Dobes today are there - they cannot breed away from the dilute color factor, for my friend stated there are almost NO dark eyed or black eyed black Dobes - "you" almost never see them.
Planning, perpetration, and purpose has made 1983 a good growth year for the Whippet Appreciation Society in Texas.
In February, blessed with good weather, a strong field ran in our first ARM race. A real learning experience. It takes the steady continued guidance of experienced people to achieve the proficiency required to hold a race meet. We demonstrated on Labor Day weekend with Jack Eaker as Race Secretary we had grown to become an adult club. No longer a fledgling, we view 1984 with determination.
New faces bring new enthusiasm and now with a large crop of excellently bred upcoming racers, our coming schedule will be of interest to all.

These planned events combined with obedience, shows, and our out-of-state appearances make for a busy year for WAS-IT. You will see us and our friends everywhere. Thanks from us to you for making 1983 a banner year especially the Carter, Yeager, Nichol, Smith and Theiss families.
We close 1983 with this pure thought: It's a shame that events that are planned and perpetrated for the purpose of our dogs' improvement cannot be accomplished without personalities and politics.
ASK SEXY SADIE, CC, F.Ch. - "Sadie"
MARCH 8, 1970 - SEPTEMBER 15, 1983
Only those who have seen her in the field can know the intensity of this 19"/19 lb. bitch that did not know how to quit.
1973 Open Field Coursing Champion Title (PCC) 1974 Lure Coursing Title (F.Ch.)
ARM Pointed - 5 points
(7th Whippet in U.S. to earn F.Ch. Title) 1972 - 3rd Ranked Whippet (Lure Coursing) 1973 - 4th Ranked Sighthound (Lure Coursing)
Intimidation was not in her vocabulary. She has forever had the last word, and I'll bet she has caused new cooking habits in dog heaven. It wasn't that Sadie was spoiled or favored, more it was that she was single-minded and knew how to educate you. Sadie is from the olde days of coursing and the formative days of racing. Behind her she leaves friends and admirers.

WE MISS HER SO
The WWRC held more official race meets than any other club in the U.S.A. Although not large in membership, the enthusiasm shown by it's members is demonstrated by the well organized full program of events. The number of entries at some of our events may have been down, but the quality and intensity of competition definitely was not. The overall competance of dogs throughout all the grades has improved considerably. Reference to the chart below will show our 1983 events and winners. Our Multnomah Kennel Club exhibition races this year were organized in conjunction with the Oregon Humane Society and were as usual, well received by a knowledgeable and enthusiastic racing crowd. The MKC-WWRC invitational saw contestants from many parts of the U.S.
David Pratt's, Trylson of Wyndsor ARM, ranked #1 racer in the nation. Don Wiltse's,Whimsey's Roving Reginald ORC, first ORC outside of CA. Karen & Tony Lewis's, Lyth Djon ARM, ranked in NPR and NOTRA top ten. Lyth Satus, 10 ARM points before one year old . Late Jane Stigum's, Roundabout Tom, ORC pointed; our rail lure specialist and top ten NOTRA nationally. Claire Larson's, Whynot Waterdance Dream; NPR pointed. All the dogs belonging to our club members tried just as hard no matter what the grade.
After a long illness, Jane Stigum died in October. Jane will be missed by this club and her many racing friends. Her enthusiasm and determination were an inspiration to us all. Jane owned Roundabout Tom and co-owned Lyth Jasper ARM, FCh and Lyth Domino ARM, FCh.
Plan on joining us in 1984 for our planned 4 NPR's and 4 NOTRA's. You are assured of a warm welcome.

1983 has been a very good year for Jackie. She earned her Companion Dog title in May in three shows, placed in the Top Ten at the Eyleland Park race meet in September and then went on to finish her Lure Courser of Merit title. She is the first-ever whippet to hold the titles of CD, ARM and LCM.
Jackie has been bred to Epinard's Sandusky, CD, ARM (Bardon Sara Lawrence, ARM, PCC x Epinard Elsa Love of Hannah). Both Jackie and Dusky are from good running litters. The puppies are due around February 10, 1984 and will probably be all fawns.
CENTRAL CALIFORNIA RACING CLUB
CCRC enjoyed a very sucessful 1983 racing season. Thanks go to all the people who traveled from all over to support our meets.
Our first meet was an oval track, held in Modesto on May 7th and 8th. It was a four program, 440 yard meet run on a rail lure, dirt track and had 29 starters. The eventual winner was Flyaway Delisa's Delight ARM ORC, who picked up her second leg towards NOTRA'S coveted triple crown award. ORC points went to Regalstock Shogun (3) and Regalstock Cosmos O'Sandhill (1), both owned by David and Annette Rosenstock.
The second meet and final oval track was held on October the 8th and featured our perpetual "Big One" trophy. This meet was run over the distance of 330 yards on a rail lure and had three programs. The winner this time was Quantas of Wyndsor ARM ORC, who also picked up his second leg towards the triple crown. Winning ORC points were Flyaway Salome of Kentfield CC CM FCh (2) owned by Dave and Merril Woolf, and Regalstock Shogun owned by the Rosenstocks (2).
Our final meet of the year was our qualifying National Point Race, held on November 6th in Fairfield. We had a fine entry of 22 adults and four puppies. Winning high score in meet was the veteran campaigner Regalstock Cimarron Del Toro ARM ORC, while best opposite sex in meet went to his half sister Dynasty of Wyndsor ARM. High score puppy was Regalstock Lyth Rouge. We had lots of fun and lots of trophys(all of which were donated by participants !).
Plans for 1984 include once again two oval track meets and our first official Nation Point Race, which will be held back to back with the Northern California Whippet Club's NPR. We hope all of our friends and supporters will be able to attend and make 1984 just as great as this season was!
#1 - April 28, Oval Track meet. Rail lure, 440 yards, 3 programs.
#2 OVAL 1983 #14 NPR 1983
WON CALIFORNIA WHIPPET DERBY WON NOTRA'S TRIPLE CROWN AWARD
Corky ran the oval 7 times in 1983, winning 5 times. She was only beaten for the #1 spot by 2 points. She now has a beautiful litter of 9, sired by Regalstock Panama Red, ARM. A few females may be available.
"Blazer" is now only 4 pts. from his ARM, but will probably never race again due to a severe toe injury. His daughter "Amour II of Wyndsor" in her first two starts as an adult picked up 4 ARM points.
"Dasher" is showing tremendous speed and finish in his first few starts as an adult. He won his first ORC point at the California Whippet Derby.
Flyaway has several young adults of excellent bloodlines available - also one proven brood bitch. Several interesting litters are planned for 1984. #1 - April 28, Oval Track meet. Rail lure, 440 yards, 3 programs.
#2 - Sept. 23, National Point Pace. Adults 200 yards, 4 programs. Puppies 150 yards, 4 programs.
#3 - Nov. 3, Oval Track Meet. Rail lure, 330 yards, 3 programs.

QUANTAS is shown winning the High Point Final of the California Whippet Derby over CORKY. He became the 1983 Oval NATIONAL CHAMPION. CORKY won the Derby on points and won the NOTRA Triple Crown.
NOTRA oval racing had a fine year which saw the regional clubs host many outstanding and exciting meets. There were 23 Official meets. A record 7 Oval Racing Championships were earned including the first by a Whippet based in Washington and the first by a Canadian owned racer. Several race formats appeared this year which had not been used previously, including 4-program rail-lure meets at 220 and 440 yards, a
3-program rail-lure meet at 440 yards, and a 4-program drag-lure meet at 350 meters. The Stampede City Whippet Club, based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada hosted their first Official meet, and included a NOTRA first, races for Afghans, Borzoi and Greyhounds.
The finish to the struggle for the National Championship (by National Points) would warm the heart of a Hollywood story writer as it came down to the final strides of the last race of the final meet of the year before the winner was decided. QUANTAS OF WYNDSOR, ARM, ORC won that race, and by the narrowest of margins won the meet which gave him the title. His record for the year is 5 wins, 3 seconds and 2 thirds. FLYAWAY DELISA'S DELIGHT, ARM, ORC was outstanding early in the year and it seemed she was on the way to a 3rd Oval National Championship. However, she did not compete the last few months of the year, and lost out to the su rg e of QUANTAS in the last half of the year. Her record was 5 wins and 1 second. REGALSTOCK CIMARRON DEL TORO, ARM, ORC, a serious contender all year long, was 3rd in National Points.
Experience has shown that some Whippets show superiority only at the shorter distances or at the longer - distances or only on a rail-lure or drag-lure track. To recognize the racer which is outstanding under all conditions, NOTRA awards a perpetual Triple Crown Trophy to the Whippet which can win meets in 1 year on 3 different kinds of tracks at a specified variety of distances. This year both CORKY and QUANTAS won the appropriate meets to qualify, but CORKY won the Trophy on points.
Twelve different Whippets won meets this year. Those who won more than 1 meet were: FLYAWAY DELISA'S DELIGHT, ARM, ORC (5), QUANTAS OF WYNDSOR, ARM, ORC (5), WILPEN SHERMAN OF WYNDSOR, ARM, ORC (3), and LYTH DJON, ARM (2).

THE BRITISH COLUMBIA WHIPPET RACING CLUB
1983 was a highly successful year for the B.C. Whippet Racing Club with top competition and good sportsmanship at all our events. As president of the BCWRC, I thank all our friends from Canada and the United States for their tremen dous support and a special thank you to all our own hard working club members.
Our first event of the year was our NPR/NOTRA weekend held June 11&12. At the NPR, the races were extremely close resulting in only 6 points separating the top six finishers! Top honors of the day were shared by Tony and Helena James' Cockeymoore Genee and WR's Morrighan of Course, owned by Leigh Smith. Top Puppy of the day was undefeated Hare Rayzor of Course, owned by the Richardsons.
Our NOTRA meet held the following day brought out 31 racers and winning the meet for the second year in a row was Penny Wilmot's Wilpen Sherman of Wyndsor, ARM to complete his ORC title.
Our annual barbeque and fun match was held once again at the lovely home of Fred and Jean Linz. Our judge this year was breeder-judge Joan Brazier, who chose June Harrison's Loughren's Special Pride as Best Puppy and Sailaway Seichem Gold (Derek and Judy Smith) as Best Adult. Best Show Champ ion was awarded to the Leinbach's Ch. Sailaway Northern Lights, F.Ch.
Our main event of every year is our "Double Header" NPR weekend. Two days of racing are complemented with barbeques and socials making the weekend a whippet lover's dream. The BCWRC hosted the racing on August 6 and the Vancouver Island Whippet Association hosted the racing on August 7. An August 6 the entry of 58 adult starters in cluded 14 NPR meet winners; undoubtably the fastest field to meet in North America this year. In addition to the California, Washington, and Oregon entries, we were delighted to have Bruce and Nancy Nickel, Tom Yeager and Terry Schwartz man, who had travelled from Wisconsin, Ohio and Maryland to race with us in British Columbia. ,Eventual winners were our own Pacific Northwest entries with a tie for High Score in Meet between Cockeymoore Genee (James) and David Pratt's Trylson of Wyndsor, ARM. High Score Puppy in an entry of 5 was again Hare Rayzor of Course owned by the Richardsons from Vancouver Island .
Our final event of the year was an NPR meet held Septem ber 11. This time Tony and Helena James' Besaps Cockeymoore Queenie took home top honors of the day with Wilpen Sherman of Wyndsor, ARM, ORC running beautifully to place second overall.
In closing, I would like to invite everyone to join us in 1984 for our "Double Header" NPR weekend scheduled for August 4 through August 6. See you there!!!
