American Whippet Club
1986 Whippet Annual
A special thanks to Carola Baranek of Wynmor Whippets for this great historical piece.
CH. WHIPPOORWILL BOHEM ARIA
with handler Mike Strockbine and judge Robert Forsyth.
Aria has been specialed only a few weekends since finishing in early 1985, but managed to pick up some major wins on those occasions, defeating over 400 whippets. She really deserves to be shown more, but remains our favorite "couch potato" and an enthusiastic amateur racer.
Since we show so little, vicarious pleasure has been derived from the success of Aria's sire, Ch. Hardknott Maestro of Bohem. Although infrequently used, he has sired 16 young champions (14 AKC, 2 Canadian, 1 Field Ch.) in less than two years. He is co-owned with Whippoorwill.
Breeding-wise, 1986 was our most active year in a long time. After no puppies since 1982, Bohem co-bred or picked puppies from four litters. We look forward to seeing these youngsters (combining the best American, English and Scandinavian blood) during 1987 and wish all the puppies the best of luck - especially the two dogs and one bitch now going through quarantine in England.
There mad possibly be a litter from Aria in 1987.

A General Overview
by "Jackie" Jackson
Though some details connected with the origin of the Whippet are obscure, there is no doubt that the breed, as we know it today, evolved in England between the 17th and 19th centuries. We can be certain that the Greyhound played an important role in its evolution, but there are many schools of thought and therefore, uncertainty as to which breeds contributed to its genealogical history.
How this elegant little dog came to be known as the Whippet is not really known but in a 16th century dictionary the interpretation of the word whippet is given as "small dog". Many years ago the Whippet was commonly referred to as "Snap Dog" or "Rag Hound".
Originally the Whippet was mainly used for hunting and coursing rabbit, but when criticism of the cruelty involved in the sport of live coursing caused the sport to be officially discontinued, attention was turned to racing. Paramount importance, in those days, was given speed rather than stamina or style and the size of the dog was considerably reduced. It was found that a dog weighing 17 pounds was the best for speed over short distances and as the length of the race track would normally be around 200 yards, the dogs were expected to cover this distance in just under 12 seconds!!! The dogs were not trained "to lure" as are the racing Whippets and Greyhounds of today. In those early days the owner or trainer would stand some distance beyond the finishing line waving a towel or strong rag and calling continuously to his dog who would race over the line, hurl itself at the rag, seize it and hang on with such tenacity that the momentum of the dog's arrival would cause the owner to swing it high into the air. Hence the name "Rag Hound".
The name "Snap Dog" was possibly attributed because of the way the Whippet defends itself. Being lightly built he does not have the weight behind him to fight in the ordinary sense of the word and when molested he will snap at his opponent and with his strength of jaw, combined with its comparative length, he is able to inflict severe punishment with the first grab.
The Whippet made its debut as a Show dog sometime during the latter part of the 19th century. The early "show dog" being picked up from dogs which were too big for, or had failed to show merit on the race tracks and fanciers saw the possibilities of popularizing a good-looking Whippet in competitions in which the exhibits were judged entirely on appearance. It was then these discards which became the ancestors of the Show Whippet we know today.
BREED OFFICIALLY RECOGNISED 1890
The breed was officially recognised by The Kennel Club in 1890 and The Whippet Club was formed in 1899 for the purpose of fostering the best interests of the Whippet as a Show Dog. Prior to that date the only other bodies working for the breed were concerned solely with racing.
Judging the Whippet as we know it today should not be such a difficult task as the standard very clearly defines the main considerations. The all important word is BALANCE: maximum muscular power and strength balanced by maximum elegance. A little too much of one and you get a cart-horse, too much of the other and you get a 'pocket' Whippet.
The standard states that all forms of exaggeration should be avoided, therefore the impression should be of long sweeping lines in a relatively small parcel; anything abrupt, hard or broken is wrong. The hallmark of a good Whippet is the long, unbroken and gently curving line which starts behind the ears, sweeps into the shoulders, continues in a slight but perceptible rise over the loin, then falls away over the rather long croup and ends in a dramatic curve through the stifles down to the hocks - which are sharply defined and provide the only very definite angle you should find in a Whippet. The underline is S-curved with a deep chest which almost reaches down to the elbows with a slim waist and powerful flanks. To acquire the perfect silhouette the dog must obviously have sufficient length of loin to avoid any cramped stance.
Movement is clearly outlined in the breed standard, but it is quite difficult to produce the kind of powerful, driving movement desired in a small breed, than in a bigger one such as the Greyhound. Sound but lack-luster move ment is in any case preferable to flash horrible inefficient "eggbeater" type of front action sometimes seen. The judge should use his discretion on how much of a dog's movement - faulty or otherwise - is due to temperament: a happy, outgoing, exuberant dog will naturally go a little higher in front, especially if shown on a tight lead, than the dog which is so bored that it's almost falling asleep in the ring. If a dog does have a powerful stride from a profile examination it should be easy to forgive slight imperfections coming and going. This dog is almost certainly a happy, outgoing dog who loves to be in the ring under attention.
The legs should have good strong bone which should not be bladed like the Borzoi but slightly flat and definitely not round. Front legs should be set under the body so as to create a slight forechest. Shoulder blades and upper arms are long and lean-looking. Hindquarters should be long from hip to knee to the low- set hocks. Front legs and hocks should be parallel except for the spring pastern.
The feet should be tight but not quite round like the cat foot nor long or oval either. The tail should be long and set—on low. Again excuses can be made for the happy dog who will carry its tail slightly high as long as it does not curl over the back.
The neck should be long without detracting from the overall balance of the dog. It should be nicely moulded with a definite arch over the nape. The head should be attractive and the finishing touch to an otherwise sound, correctly made and well proportioned dog with good running gear, and judges should never allow it to take precedence over basic construction. There is a modern tendency to over—fine skulls which is almost as disturbing as the constant problem of too—thin muzzles and weak underjaws. The head must be balanced, as a narrow skull often means that the eyes are set too close giving the dog a sharp impression, whereas an overly broad skull will give the impression of coarseness. The jaw should be long and strong enough to prevent the head from getting a "snipey" expression. Ear carriage is sometimes a problem that crops up now and again but most Whippets will carry their ears in the required "rose" shape when alert and folded back behind the head when in repose. A happy, alert dog will sometimes "fly" his ear and judges should be aware that they may not get the required ear carriage in the ring, but if they do insist on "trying" a Whippet's ears by throwing keys or squeaking a toy, then they should do it far enough away for the head to be kept parallel to the ground — not under the dog's nose!!! Size still remains a big problem. Our standard states that a Whippet should be as close to 17.5-18.5 inches as possible, with the important proviso that "an otherwise good dog should not be penalized for its size".
The Whippet Club of England are, at present, revising the standard with respect to size, but it should be borne in mind that overall breed type and balance must prevail at all times.
As a family pet, the Whippet is intensely affectionate, very easily trained, highly intelligent, exceptionally clean and easy to manage health—wise. He has a happy, outgoing temperament and a terrific sense of humour. He loves his home comforts and is in his element when stretched out on the best lounge furniture or curled up beside you in your bed at night!! He is one of the most adaptable and versatile of dogs and can be taught to find game and retrieve it, and, in recent years, there have been many Whippets all over the world which are excellent in obedience tests.

An Open Letter to All Whippet (and dog) Lovers:
I need your help. I have too many dogs to give them the love and individual attention I think they deserve, especially my retired show kids. Please, if you have or know of that special place for these boys and girls, lend me a hand. Some are retired from the show ring, some are currently being shown, and some just want to be someone's best buddy. This page and the next two pages have pictures of these "homeless" hounds, and a bit of information about each. I love them too much to keep them. Help me if you can

IN LOVING MEMORY
CH. MERCI ISLE THE STING
We loved Sting very much. We only owned her 4 years and she was a mature dog when she came to live with us. But her quiet ways and complete devotion to us and our other whippet Hopper (F.Ch. Merci Isle Ring Singer) brought her closer to us than a pet raised from a puppy and owned many years.
Sting was a very special dog. She suffered 2 life—threatening illnesses,
but they never took away her spirit. She overcame auto—immune anemia, and fought back cancer for 3 years before she finally went to sleep for her final rest. She was a tough little girl with an incredibly strong will to live. She loved to eat and we were perennially dieting her. She loved to lure—course, a sport she
picked up and excelled at despite her age and various infirmities. It was such a thrill to see our old girl passing up the younger dogs to take a placement ribbon. She loved chasing squirrels and cats and even got hold of a squirrel's tail once. Thereafter she was mad about going for walks. Car rides of any length were loved, but most of all she just loved to be near us and Hopper, curled up on her dog bed or couch. Or best of all, stretched out under all the covers in the bed, no matter what the season.
She was quiet and shy and full of good manners, and there has never been nor ever will be a more faithful loving companion dog. She is missed very much.
Stinger was the whippet who won 3 5-point majors during the 1977 AWC Specialty Weekend.

The story of this wild & beautifully bred dog will be continued .

I own four Pems. When I bought my second Corgi (a pet) she had quite a few problems with parasites. She was wormed repeatedly for tapes, hooks and Coccidia. Her diarrhea subsided somewhat, and I thought no more about it. She was subse quently diagnosed as having PEI. Approximately one year later, I bought a male show puppy. He was twelve weeks old and very healthy. Approximately two months later, he started experiencing the same intermittant diarrhea problems I had with the previous puppy. In addition, he experienced some vomiting. He never ran a temp. I had his stool checked extensively, and never found a parasite. My vet thought perhaps he had some kind of corona virus, and we treated with kaolin. He got through the worst of the problem all right, but never really stopped having bowel problems. In fact, I realized, all three of my dogs would experience inter mittant diarrhea for no apparent reason, although it was usually induced by stress. I also noticed skin lesions similar to staph or seborrhea on their bellies. In addition, they never seemed to carry a good coat and were a little thin at all times. I tried many remedies and sought for a cause for the next year.
When my next puppy developed the same problems, only to a greater degree, I started to really worry. Was there something in my water? I had it checked: nothing. No one else in my area was having the problems I was having. I thought perhaps the lack of coat (especially loosing top coat) was caused by our steam heat. I was grasping at straws.
About this time (Feb.'86), we were planning to purchase a new home. I had become convinced that my problems were something my dogs were carrying and I desperately wanted to discover what it was before I moved to our new house. Luckily, I subscribe to the Cornell University Animal Health Newsletter, published by the Cornell Vet Med Department. In the Feb.'86 issue, they carried a feature article about Giardia. In this article, they described all of the symptoms that my dogs were experiencing. They also reported that many cases of giardia go undetected because the cysts are so small, and most vet clinics are not equiped to detect them!! They recommend using a 1.18 specific gravity zinc sulfate solution for traditional flotation detection. This solution is superior to the traditional sugar or saline solutions for this particular detection process. This is because they are too hypertonic and will collapse the giardia cysts.
I asked my vet about obtaining the solution, which we discovered was going to be very difficult. She then suggested that I contact Cornell directly. I called them and spoke to Dr. Marianne Georgi in the Parisitology Department. We had a long discussion about giardia. We decided that I should send stool samples from each of my dogs to Cornell for testing. I sent two samples for each dog, one fresh and one preserved with 10% formalin.
Several days later, she called me. She had not found giardia as a result of the normal scanning process, even with the use of the zinc solution. I was so disappointed!! However the next day she called and told me the good news. All of my dogs were infected with giardia, which she had discovered by using a Phasemicro scopy microscope. This type of microscope, she explained, increases the contrast using interference microscopy. Therefore, the tiny cysts (approximately 9-12u in size) were easier to see. I was elated. I realize this may sound morbid, but I was so relieved that I had finally found what was causing such poor condition and stress diarrhea in my dogs.
My dogs went through a standard treatment with the drug quinicrine. This particular treatment is very hard on the dogs as it causes acute nausea. In my case, my smallest pet bitch had a severe reaction to the medication. I have subsequently treated with Flagyl (metronidazole) and was much more pleased with the results. Flagyl causes none of the vomiting. Quinicrine is supposed to be more effective, but since my dogs vomited from it, I believe that Flagyl must be the preferred form of treatment just because they keep it down.
In retrospect, after much research on the subject, I believe that giardia is both much more widespread than anyone believes, and is a very devastating parasite. I do not really know where my dogs picked it up. We used to take them out for jaunts in the forest preserves, so perhaps they caught it there.
The increase in the condition of my dogs has been unbelievable. Incredibly, giardia has even been implicated in mimicing Exocrine Pancreatic Insuffiency by interferring with fat absorption!!
Giardia can be contracted via drinking water, direct contact, and by licking paws after walking over ground infected with cysts. It most commonly affects very young and very old dogs most severely. For some reason, mature dogs seem to develop some resistance to the parasite.
Giardia is now considered endemic in the wildlife population in most of the midwest and Rocky Mountain areas, and is the most common human parasite in the world. If you are having a problem with the condition of your dogs and they are experiencing diarrhea, (dogs can have giardia without the symptomatic diarrhea, however) I would recommend testing your dogs for giardia. If your vet is unable to find it, you may contact Dr. Marianne Georgi at the New York State College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell. She is in the Diagnostic Lab; Ithaca, NY 14853. Her telephone number is 607-253-3580. You must be referred to her through your vet, and all results and the bill are sent to your vet. The fee for diagnostics was very reasonable. If they don't find the parasite the first time, I believe they recommend you sample several more times to be sure you obtain a sample while the dog is shedding cysts.

Giardiasis is defined as a protezoan parasite found in the upper third of the small intestine. The feeding stage of the organism is called a trophazoite which is capable of living outside the body for approximately twenty minutes. Giardiasis is transmitted through the feces via cysts. These cysts are very hardy, able to endure extreme cold and considerable heat. Moisture appears to be the most compat able environment for the cysts to survive, with water as an ideal medium. Once a dirt area is contaminated by fecal material, it is a permanent source of infection.
Early symptoms of giardiasis include a lack of maintaining proper body weight, even when eating a substantial amount of food, and periodic flushing diarrhea which may occur daily or weekly. Affected individuals may have softer stools, often with mucus, which pass rapidly from the body and will have a larger amount of stool than normal. Often the animal exhibits an urgency to pass the stool. When intermittent diarrhea is observed which responds short term to treatment, but reoccurs,
giardiasis should be considered a strong possibility.
Dry skin and deterioration of the quality of the hair coat are reported in some cases due to a secondary deficiency of fat soluable vitamins. Anemia and dehydration, especially in puppies, has been noted. Rectal prolapse was reported in a four month old youngster with giardiasis. Ulceration of the colon has been found in two canine cases of giardiasis. Also, ulceration of the ilium was reported.2 As with other parasites, the tolerance for giardiasis varies from one individual to the next depending on age, general condition and sensitivity.
Without a doubt, the most urgent concern with giardiasis is its public health implications. It is the most common form of intentional infection found in man.3 Evidence suggests that direct transmission from companion animals to humans does occur. Giardiasis from wild animals is known to infect humans. Contamination of drinking water from giardia infected animals has been implicated in several outbreaks of giardiasis in humans. Experimentally, dog source giardia has been successfully infected into humans and human source giardia into the dog. All this implies that giardiasis in companion animals poses a threat to the health of the owners. THEREFORE, IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT ALL ANIMALS DIAGNOSED WITH GIARDIASIS, REGARDLESS IF THEY SHOW SYMPTOMS OR NOT, BE TREATED.4
It might be well to note that the human host for this protezoan, if undiagnosed and untreated, can become very ill. There are extreme cases of dehydration which have required hospitalization to an infected family of five. These family members manifested periodic diarrhea, severe stomach cramps and weight loss. Over a period of three months, giardiasis left the family physically depleted and generally feeling ill. The source of this infection was never known, but its diagnosis came as a great relief to the family.
Giardiasis poses a specific set of problems not found in dealing with other parasites. First, it is shed from the body on an average of once a week, although there have been individuals that shed once every two weeks. Second, the cyst itself is not easily identified and the techniques used by the veterinarian or parasitologist to recover the cysts from the stool differ from the norm. Also, of major importance for man, is the fact that the drug Flagyl or its generic Metronidazole used to treat giardia is a carcenogen, can have severe neurological side effects and at the least can cause a bacterial imbalance and or infection in the intestinal tract. Therefore, in dealing with giardiasis, prevention is the most positive option.
We unfortunately had the opportunity to observe giardiasis in a sizable dog population over a period of four months before a proper method of treatment and sterilization of the environment could be arrived at and implemented. It seemed that not only was it difficult to detect in the stool, veterinarians had a lack of experience in treating the parasite. There also was no consistency in the general information obtained with a wide range of treatment methods. A common statement heard was that it was virtually impossible to erradicate in a large dog population. This dog population numbered nineteen, ranging in age from fourteen years to three months,
when the giardiasis was diagnosed. Two bitches that were in whelp were immediately separated from the group and exercised on newspaper from that point on. Though they had used the same contaminated runs, they never contracted the parasite and their puppies were never affected. The rest of the dog population was treated for giardiasis automatically.
Taking information from many sources, plus integrating practical experience, this was the method arrived at to erradicate giardiasis:
I. Dosage and method of administering the drug
II. During the period of medication, the following steps were taken:
III. General hygiene.
IV. Follow—up procedure
There are two alternate plans regarding the treatment of giardiasis. These are
five and seven day regiments. Both of these methods have been tried unsuccessfully. They are especially impractical when dealing with a large number of dogs. The need for the 10 day treatment is clear, as there was one of the treated whippets that flushed a stool filled with giardia cysts on her eleventh day, twenty—four hours after her last dose of medication. Also, the reason for dividing the dosage and administering it twice daily is to insure that the most consistent blood levels are maintained. It should also be noted that one individual was found to be positive after the first 10 day program and was retreated on the same regiment and was then clean. This dog was then supplimented with Lactinex to aid the intestinal tract. Cornell is currently working on products to kill giardia cysts, and now recommends a product called Quatsyl 256. It is mixed in these proportions for surface application: 1 oz. Quatsy 1/8 oz. clorox/2 gal. water. This product can be obtained from National Laboratory, 225 Summit Ave., Montvale, NJ 07645. Phone: 201-573-5700.
Giardiasis is undoubtedly rampant in our dog population. It has been found in whippets from all parts of the United States and Canada. It is also highly doubtful that it is limited to our breed alone. It is harbored unknowingly by some. Others choose to ignore it, or having struggled with the problem, at least feel they have their situation somewhat under control. Is giardiasis something we as breeders must accept as a fact of our life in dogs? Personally, as our Whippets are kept first as house pets, we must have a healthy, parasite free population. Even our more relaxed parasitologist believes one reason to erradicate giardiasis is if you have a continuing breeding program where puppies will be affected.
Prevention is the key. Just as concern about exposing our puppies to parvo has changed the way we travel to dog shows, so does giardiasis necessitate more precaution. Minimize exposure at shows and clean feet and legs before placing the dog back into his crate. Use similar care with your dog show shoes. (A personal plea - Why not carry baggies at our dog shows? They truly are just that, you know, our dog shows. Why not be responsible for cleaning up after our own dogs and make the show grounds a more pleasant and healthy place?) Dogs and dog shows aside, the key issue in giardiasis is emphacized in the statement by Drs. Kirkpatrick and Farrell, "... giardiasis in companion animals may represent a health threat to their owners, and, therefore, it is necessary that all animals diagnosed with giardiasis, regardless if they show symptoms or not, be treated. "5 As breeders, we have a responsibility not only to our dogs, but also to those who acquire dogs from us, to have healthy animals and to do what we can to help prevent the spread of disease.
