Best In Sweepstakes - AWC Southern Specialty
The littermates are shown at 7 months making their debut at the 1995 AWC Southern Specialty. Co-bred with Al Miniero, they are sired by Ch. Mimbre's Gilded Grayling, out of Appraxin Alerek Adored.
" Hudson's" kids are as fun to show as he - they have earned multiple Group placements, BOB wins over specials, and loads of points from the puppy classes - thrilling their owner - handlers and myself. Thank you Jeff Winton, Jim Modica, Kim Tudor and Dean Keppler for major accomplishments in 1995!
This year, Calvin finished with his third major, took a Select at the National Specialty, began and completed his field championship, nearly attained his LCM and placed in the ASFA top twenty! Whew! And he's not even two yet!
"Flirt" flew through the summer to place 14th in ASFA's top twenty,
while finishing an LCM Ill and earning two legs towards a CD.
Calvin would also like to congratulate these littermates, all of whom achieved their field championship titles in the first 6 weeks of the season:
BIF Northwind's Smokin' Gun FCh - "Dillon" - owner Holly Chin
Northwind's Hillbilly FCh - "Elly Mae" - owners Jon and Susan Pforr
Northwind's Patent Pending FCh - "Gizmo" - (6 pts, 2 maj resrv)
Sire: Ch. Paris Persuasion, SC Dam: Sporting Flds Victorian Lace
Bailey is our first homebred champion. We are very proud of his accomplishments in the ring. From his first points, back-to-back majors from puppy class, to his last finishing 5-point major at Westchester KC, Bailey was never out of the ribbons. Bailey is extremely sound, with correct whippet type and movement.
We are very grateful to Karen Roberson, Bailey's best friend and handler, for taking an interest in Bailey and piloting him to his championship so quickly. And thank you to all the judges who so graciously handed Bailey his points.
Waiting in the wings is Bailey's sister, Eclipse Pennies From Heaven.
GSDWA had a very busy 1995. We started the year by holding our last required "B" Match in January, our judges were Doris Bandoian judging our sweepstakes and Pam Lambie judging our regular classes. In February, the AKC gave us permission to do our first "A" Match; it was held in May with Mary Dukes judging. Our match was a huge success, with an entry of 35 whippets - not bad for a Friday, pre-entry only, and the puppies had to be 6 months old. In November, we held our second "A" Match, with an entry of 28 whippets; our judge was Andy Linton. It was as successful as our first.
All of our paperwork is in to the AKC asking permission to hold our first specialty show. We should be hearing by mid-January. Our organization will be hosting the 1998 National in Del Mar California. Thanks to Lori Lawrence for finding us a wonderful location.
Jo Rufing placed 27 dogs through our whippet rescue. Jo is to be commended for all the hard work in helping find homes for all these whippets. Our club honored Jo Rufing by giving her the Kennel Ration Good Sportsman Award for 1995.
At our annual Christmas party we gave our awards for the year; this year we gave out sixteen awards to our members for champions finished, obedience titles, and coursing titles. We also gave out several awards for club members whose whippets received their ROM and ROMX titles.
As you can see, we have a very active club and enjoy each other's company.

An elegant, sound bitch, Bagel has an enviable record for an unenthusiastic show dog. She finished

ictured above basking in the afterglow of our first specialty show and obedience trial are our hard-working club members. Great job, Gang!!
1995 was a banner year for the NCWFA. We all pulled together and put on our first Annual Specialty and Obedience Trial on October 21. It was a smashing success with over 100 entries for Judge Betsy Prior, 32 Sweepstakes entries for Dr. John Berger and five hardy obedience exhibitors for Mrs. Rosalee Alvarez. Our Supported Entry the next day was more of the same, with great entries for Betty Stites and Jean Balint. Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to all those who exhibited!
Our club also kept busy in the field in 1995, holding four Lure Trials (Thanks, Sue Urban!) and two NAWRA/ NOTRA weekends (Thanks, David Gill!). Rescue, with Carol Gregory at the helm, placed over fifteen dogs in new, loving homes. While all these events kept up busy, we still found time to socialize at our annual Christmas party; always a treat for humans and whippets alike!
As 1996 looms on the horizon, we are well underway with plans for our second specialty, more lure coursing and racing, and more fun get-togethers for us and our wonderful whippets. Come and join us for any or all of these activities!

As of December 1995, shown less than 10 times total:
Best (n Sweeps - SCWA Support - Judge: Doris Bandoian
Best (n Sweeps - NCWF Specialty - Judge: Dr. John Burger
Best of Winners (major) - SWCA Support - Judge: Desmond Murphy
Best of Winners (major) - Superstition KC - Judge: Pat Craig-Trotter
WD, Best of Opposite (over specials) - Kachina KC - Judge: Frank Sabella
ALL of the above wins were from the 6-9 class.
In spite of an undeniably difficult year, December found "Star" firmly entrenched among the top 10 whippets in the nation, all systems. Throughout the year, he won multiple groups and was awarded 'selects' at both Westminster and the AWC Western Specialty. We are extremely proud of the "Star" get, 5 of whom are major pointed from 6-9, including 2 Best (n Sweepstakes winners.
"Angel" finished this year in short order, as judges and fellow breeders alike found her ultra feminine type and never-say-die Show attitude irresistable. We also look forward in 1996 to the presentation of our newest addition, "Starline's Stardust" (Ch. Shasta Midnight Star x Ch. Starline's Claim To Fame) to the fancy.
1995 had its ups and downs at Chaparral!
(June 20, 1991 - July 23, 1995)
CHAM finished her championship at the age of 18 months, with Breed wins. Shown on a limited basis as a Special, she had numerous BB wins and a Group placement. CHAM loved to course and earned her ASFA FCh and SC and was working on her LCM and AKC FCh. She earned the first leg of her CD at the AWC National Specialty in April 1995 and the 2nd leg at the Toledo KC show in June. She was 9th to her mother at the 1995 AWC Triathalon. She was a sweet, loving, happy dog, who approached life with joy and enthusiasm.
CHAM lost her eyesight on her 4th birthday. One month later, she lost her valiant fight against a malignant brain tumor.
I would like to thank my family and friends for all their support, my vet, Dr. Jerry Burroughs, for his advice and initial assistance, the vets at the Michigan Veterinary Specialist in Southfield, MI, and at the Veterinary Referral Center in Cleveland, OH, for their special care and treatment of CHAM during her stays, Dr. Connie Brunkow DVM for some much needed phone advice and encouragement and, most especially, to my backup vet, Dr. Robert Esplin, for meeting us on that final Sunday morning. Rest in Peace, dear, sweet Cham.
I had not planned to have puppies anytime soon, but when CH. CHAPARRAL BENAZIR CD came into season shortly after Cham's death, I decided puppies were just what I needed. BENA was bred to Multi-Specialty and Group winning CH. ELYSIAN A-FEW PERRIER LCM, with pups born October 9 - just in time for the Futurity! A very special red and white girl, HILLIARY (otherwise known as HILLIARY RODHAM WHIPPET), sometimes gets a certain look in her eye, or makes a certain sound that only CHAM made. It does make one wonder!

Camille continued her winning ways in 1995, earning three LCM's, despite taking time out to have a litter of nine beautiful pups, sired by FCh. Tnt's Jumpin Jack Flash, CD, CGC, LCM IV By earning LCM X, Camille becomes the #1 all-time ASFA Whippet Bitch.

Our beautiful Louise finished her championship in 1995 with a lovely win under breeder-judge Shelly Hennessy. She was breeder-owner handled to most of her wins.
1995 was also a year of sadness, as we lost our Ch. Carbeth The Candy Man, SC. LCM. Starbar was our
first born Whippet, our first Field Champion, first LCM and our first Best in Field - and was always FIRST IN OUR HEARTS.
