Typey and absolutely sound, DINAH finished quickly in only four months, owner-handled. She made her Specials debut in September and, in very limited showing, has won 4 B.O.B., a Group 3 and a Group 1 ! ! Thank you, Barbara, for entrusting us with this very "Specials" bitch !
We also wish to thank all our friends and fellow competitors for their graciousness, encouragement, and
Northern California Whippet Fanciers Association, Inc.
. . . established 1964
In 1994, the Northern California Whippet Fanciers celebrated it's thirtieth anniversary year with many commemorative events. Fun was the operative word, as we hosted the first annual "Irregular Dog Show", which turned the traditional show procedure upside down with great results; held a "Whippet Olympics", where our canine pals competed for the gold in events as diverse as "find the hidden liver" or "high jump"; and had our first lure coursing seminar, where club members got to try their hand at everything from field clerking to lure operation.
1994 was also the second year of our well-attended "Whippet Extravaganza Weekend", with our A Match judged by Calvin Perry, and two Supported Entries and a Sweepstakes, which had entries of over 60 each day! Lure Coursing was a constant feature, as coordinator Christie Beetz put on more trials in 1994 than we thought was humanly possible (and made them a success!!). Racing, headed by David Gill, was the focus of two well-attended NAWRA / NOTRA weekends. Carol Gregory, assisted by Carolyn Simpson and our other hard working volunteers, made sure that our Rescue Program maintained its high standards, placing eighteen dogs in new, loving homes.
We here at the NCWFA expect that the dawn of our fourth decade should prove as exciting as our first three. To that effect, we have planned more great Lure Coursing on fabulous fields, two racing weekends, our "fun" Olympics and Irregular Dog Show, and, pending AKC approval, our first Independent Specialty, tentatively scheduled for October 1995. We'll keep you posted!

The puppies from our April 6, 1993 litter of Ch. Broadstrider By George and Locar's Creme De Cocao, JC have had a very good year. "Bentley" (pictured above) is a multiple breed winner from the classes and needs just a major and a single to finish at twenty months. We really like his deep and curvy outline, powerful movement, and delightfully outgoing temperament. Bred and owned here, "Bentley" is co-owned and beautifully handled by Dan Silva. To see "B's" "other side", please take a look at the Pedigree Section.
Dan and Leslie also have the pleasure of owning a second sister, "Spree", who, in addition to some great point show wins, was the victor of the 1218 months sweeps class of 20 at the AWC Western under Lesley Potts! These pups' dam, "Julia", will be bred again in 1995. Inquiries invited.

We've been doing a lot of running, and are looking forward to even more. BRANDY (One O'Clock Misty Rose) is recovered from her bout with Valley Fever and is back on the field, as is her Dad, CASEY (Ch. Jilzan Stormbird, SC, FCh), who shows some effects from his terrible injury, but has the heart and courage to overcome them. Casey's fall 1994 litter out of Charmaine's sister, BONNIE (Jilzan Bonnie Dream), will be waiting in the wings for their turn. Watch for Jilzan Peregrine Dream and Jilzan Stormy Dreams to make their debuts in 1995! Bonnie and Charmaine's other sister, the lovely SHADOW (Jilzan Shadow Dreams), has put her coursing career on hold - she's expecting a February litter by fast and handsome TIMMY (Select Ch. Chelsea Antipodes, FCh).

"Drake" continues to be our special companion. We are pleased that the qualities we value in him he is able to reproduce consistently. His Specialty rewarded get are proof. One only has to look to see.
This year found Drake exhibited only twice. He captured his third Specialty win (to the delight of his many admirers) at WWWA's Independent, under Mr. Thomas Partis. He won BOS at the AWC Eastern Regional under Ms. Carol Willumsen. As we reflect upon Drake's rich show career, it is the judgement of our peers that has meant the most to us. On the eve of Drake's Veteran year, we have warm memories of the honorable wins awarded by highly respected breeders.
Thank you . . .
His very first point at 10 months old. There can never be another "first" point.

We are proud to announce that "Jacob" has come home. We are anxious to present him to the fancy as a mature dog. With limited opportunities, he has proven himself packed with potential, as he has sired multiple Group winners and several champions. He is from a beautiful linebred litter and excels in a gorgeous headpiece, wonderful full body, with equal moderate angles on both ends. We at Surrey Hill are anxious to get back to our "roots" by using him ourselves on some of our best homebred bitches.

Two of Our 1994 Champs !
CH. SURREY HILL MILLENIUM FALCON, FCH, SC
(AmCanCh Surrey Hill's Houston FCh ROMX x AmCanCh Surrey Hill's I'm No Angel FCh SC ROM)
Harrison won his finishing major his first time out after our move to PA. He is really a cool dog, being handsome, brave, loving, and playful - everything a whippet male should be. He possesses that elusive combination of long, ground-covering lines and strong curves which is so very pleasing.
Harrison is owned by his breeders: Karen L. Bowers (Lee)
and Carolyn J. Bowers

"Carrie" and co-owner Andria Helm have been turning heads in Juniors and breed competition. Andria showed Carrie to a major win under Mrs J.E. Clark and BOB under Mrs. Foy this year, as well as many wins in Junior Showmanship. Way to go Andria! Carrie hopes to have linebred pups sometime in 1995.

"Keena", our lovely Futurity and Sweepstakes class-winning puppy matured into a gorgeous yearling. She has 14 pts. and both majors at 17 mos.; her smoothness of finish, easy-going disposition, and heavy angulation are Surrey Hill hallmarks. We are equally proud of her two sisters - both of whom have breed ring and coursing accomplishments. Dawn's small litter has given us big excitement.
Keena was bred by Karen L. Bowers, Bob Strom, and Carolyn J. Bowers and is owned by Carolyn and Karen: 959 Deerfoot Road, DeLand, Florida 904 / 738-7752
CHELSEA SELENA, SC
(AmCanCh Surrey Hill's My Man Godfrey JC x Ch Chelsea Take My Breath Away)
When I heard the beautiful Sara was booked to the delightfully droll and structurally outstanding Godfrey, well, I just couldn't resist. Temptation has its rewards, namely, my exquisitely lovely and feminine moon goddess, who also happens to be fairly hot stuff in the field and with a Frisbee. Selena also needs ony 1 point for her bench title, and has major and other points in AKC and ASFA coursing.
Selena was bred by the Christiansons (Chelsea) and is owned by Karen Bowers Lee and Deann Christianson

Special thanks to Marilyn Rew of Halmarque for this enthusiastic and loving dog.

1994 was an action-packed year for the Western Washington Whippet Assoc. In addition to our 2nd independent specialty show, we found time to put on 4 weekends of ASFA lure trials, including a whippet only trial and the Regional Invitational, a NOTRA racing weekend and countless social events, practices and meetings. In addition, our energies were focused on helping to make the '94 AWC National a successful and memorable week, despite the constant deluge that had even us natives wondering if we needed to build an ark.
1995 promises to be another busy year for us. Our third independent specialty will be moving to an independent location and we will add a whippet-only AKC lure trial to the weekend's festivities. We will continue an ambitious schedule of running events as well, particularly if we can find that ever elusive field for running NAWRA/NPR meets during the summer. Through it all, one thing remains constant - our commitment to having a good time. It just wouldn't be WWWA without the potlucks, parties and picnics.
