In Conformation :
Starting with a 2nd in a class of 20 at the ‘96 Whippet National, Calvin now has 6 conformation points, along with 5 RWD, 2 BOS, 2 BOW and 6 WD — he's placed in 75°/o of the shows he's been in so far.
In AKC Coursing :
Earned hisJC title 31 August 1996.
In ASFA Coursing :
At 16 mos., Calvin earned his FCh title (11/9/96) in only 6 trials - placing in 4 of them. His first trial was at Jersey Rag Racers on 4 July and, after taking 40 points in his Open A stake, he beat the Open B stake dog as well. He went Best of Breed in the trial where he earned his FCh title, beating both the A & B stake field champions.
Watch for him in the ring and on the field. Named for the Calvin & Hobbs cartoon characters, this ‘lil tiger is too imaginative for obedience at the moment, but we'll be there in the future.

1996 was probably the busiest year in our club’s 25 year history. It started on New Year’s eve, with a mad dash to submit our application to the AKC after receiving approval to hold our first licensed specialty. We held our first event on July 7th, in conjunction with the Starved Rock Kennel Club in Princeton, Illinois. We had 43 entries, with Eilene Pimlot as Breed Judge and Joe Light (Mimbres) as our Sweepstakes Judge. From the positive responses, we expect that our 1997 event, to be held with the Wheaton Kennel Club on Saturday, June 6, should prove to be bigger and better. In addition, the AWC will be doing a supported entry on the following Sunday with The Kennel Club of Yorkville.
Not taking a breather, we held our annual whippet picnic open to the public on August 8. There were over 80 whippets attending, along with their owners. Besides a sanctioned “B” match, we decided to hold a special event for our non-showing members; a “funny” fun match, repleat with costumes and “special” classes. In attendance was Dennis Rodman dog, complete with feather boa; Zorro, wearing his black cape and mask; and Cleopatra, a rescue greyhound. There was also a special “Arnold Schwarzenegger” class for the largest whippet. Exhibition straight racing was conducted by Gregg Gammie.
We held two “NPR” style straight track race meets this year in conjunction with the Show-Me Whippet Club and the Greater St. Louis Whippet Club. We had entrants from as far as California at our September meet. Ralph Eyles hosted the events at his Eyleland Kennel.
In April, we held a fund raising dinner with a silent auction and, on December 8, our annual Christmas Brunch, which included board member elections. On December 14, we did a supported entry for the Skokie Valley Kennel Club.

“Clipper” has been a treat to watch mature. Possessed with a grand disposition and a supple body giving him a beautiful running style, he lure courses with great desire and has earned his JC* (subject to AKC approval) and “sailed” into the following wins in the ring.
• RWD to a 4-point major from bred-by at the Monroe Kennel Club show September 29 — Tom Kilcullen judging.
• WD for his first 2 points from bred-by over top competition, then BOW and BOB over a BIS special at the Delaware Kennel Club show October 27 — Carol Duffy judging. As an added bonus, he made the cut in the group with Carol Duffy judging that, as well. What a day!
Thank you to the judges and to others who have appreciated “Clipper”.

Poca has thrilled us with her feminine elegance, sound movement, athleticism, and charming personality. She’s gotten many compliments, including Best of Breed and the cut in the Hound Group under Dr. Houpt, and winning points under breeder judge Ray Parsons (Raybar). Thank you! Shown here at age 18 months, she’ll only get better! A dynamo on the coursing field, she’s on the warpath for an early F.Ch. title! Watch out for this “Indian Maiden” — she may steal your heart, too!
(Ch. Jilzan Stormbird, SC, FCh. x Jilzan Bonnie Dream)
Pen thrilled us by going Winners Bitch and 1st Select at the Western Washington Whippet Association Specialty under breeder judge Nubby Erickson, her first time out in the Open Class! She followed that with more points under judges Cynthia Sommers, Dorothy Welsh and Ken Henrichsen. And she was winning Best of Breeds on the lure coursing field at the same time! Many thanks to the breeders who have complimented Pen on her beauty, as well as her totally sound movement. Our ‘brindle with lots of attitude”, Pen proves that sometimes color really is immaterial!!
Not to be outdone, nephew Jasper was winning points and reserves from the puppy class - thank you judges Ray Parsons, Vincent Reidy and Cynthia Sommers! Curvy, moderate and very sound, he’s keen on the lure and a natural showman! We think he’s VERY special!
(Ch. Surrey Hill’s My Man Godfrey x Ch. One O’Clock Sunrise At Jllzan, SC, FCh.)
Our “Dragon litter” (named for Anne McCaffrey’s Dragons of Pern novels), has thrilled us with their depth of quality. They have quite a heritage to live up to, with many of the classic bloodlines in their pedigree, and an AWC National BOW, ASFA Best In Field dam. We think they’ll do us proud!
Canth is a wonderfully houndy dog, with lots of length and lean lines. Amaranth is a striking deep red and white, with a lovely deep body.
Watch out for dragons!
(Ch. Surrey Hill’s My Man Godfrey x Ch. One O’Clock Sunrise At Jilzan, SC, FCh.)
Ruth and Ramoth are two of the prettiest dragon girls we’ve ever seen! Dark, dark eyes, and loads of curvy, feminine elegance in striking fawn and white!
Watch out for dragons!

Our “Easterners” have fit right in! Thank you very much, Karen Bowers Lee, for allowing us to co-breed Phoenix’s litter! Harrison and Carmen have long been favorites of ours! Phoenix is a lovely bundle of energy and coursing desire, wrapped up in a curvy red and white package.
Lilac is our “Canadian flower”. Thank you, Mike and Lanny Morry, for entrusting her to us. With a pedigree containing many of the most classic English whippets, we think she’ll have a lot to offer the American scene!
Sara hasn’t had her photo in the Annual for a few years, so we decided that her 14th birthday was a fitting occasion! Sara is shown here with her 7-year-old son Casey, his 5 1/2 year-old daughter Brandy, and her 6-month-old son Jasper. A special congrats to Brandy on earning her F.Ch. just weeks shy of her 6th birthday - after a bad bout with Valley Fever, summer layoff and a maternity leave, she was overdue!
Four generations of beautiful, talented whippets - and many

IN THE RING:
We are proud of Gilly’s daughters (out of our Ch. Mimbres Frosta Frolic, FCh), Ch. Swiftsure Always at Whimsy
IN THE FIELD:
STEVE & LINDA BUCHHOLZ
What a star! Her first time in the show ring garnered her a win in the very competitive 6-9 puppy bitch class at the Greater Chicago Whippet Club Specialty under judge Joe Light. Since that time, Brandy has been one of the most talked about youngsters on the show scene. She is indeed a tribute to her pedigree.

It was an exciting summer, as Tigger finished his CD from Novice A in 3 trials, and earned a second place on his second leg! Special thanks to our instructor, Toots Stinson, for reading Tigger so well, and helping us get it right; to our classmates, for your enthusiastic encouragement; and to my husband Paul for being there, always. We are now working on Open and Utility exercises. . . who knows where this will lead!
This handsome red brindle boy is not only my first whippet, but also the first dog I’ve ever owned, and I’m very proud of his accomplishments. He is halfway to his ASFA field championship (and hopes to get back out there and work on it when he gets a chance), and he enjoys NOTRA and straight racing as well. Tigger also recently passed the CGC/TDI test, and we’re looking forward to starting Therapy Dog visits.
Most important of all, Tigger is a wonderful friend and companion to our family, especially our sons, Dane and Jeffrey, and our second whippet, his cousin Kira.

Lovely Bea was widely praised at the AWC National Specialty, where she won Reserve Winners bitch, handled 17y Roger Stock. Bea won a Canadian Championship while visiting Jenny McCartney in Toronto. Back home, she won half the points needed for an American Championship, then traveled on to Sweden, where she now lives happily with her new owner, Nenne Rusten.
