A special thanks to Terry Schwartzman of Travlin' Whippets for the Historic contribution to the AWC
Undoubtedly there are many people who have never seen a Whippet or heard of one. I was such a person until I met Mr. & Mrs. Eugene Jacobs, who own Whipoo Kennels, located just out side Mahomet, Illinois, and specialize in raising the Whippet breed of dog, which, in this part of the country is used as a show dog.
The Whippet looks like a miniature Greyhound. The coat is any color, the most common being fawn, fawn brindle, or white with colored markings. Whippets respond quite well to training, and once they learn a new routine or trick they rarely forget it. They are slightly above average in intelligence.
There are two main theories as to the origin of the Whippet. One is, that the Whippet was originally produced by a cross between the Greyhound and the Terrier. The other, presented in 1907 by F. C. Hignetts, is that the Whippet existed as a seperate breed at a time long before pedigrees were "officially preserved." However, Mr. Hignetts agrees that the Greyhound probably had a share in the genealogical history" of the Whippet. Most Whippet breeders agree to the Greyhound - Terrier cross theory.
Perhaps the "nobility" which is readily noted in the Whippet is traceable to its English ancestry! It is said that the Whippet breed originated in the north of England during the 17th century. At this time, these dogs were used as rabbit hunting hounds. Then, during the 1600's, the sport of Whippet racing developed in England , and was widely accepted by the upper class.
Today the Whippets are bred mainly to be show dogs or racers. They are also used for hunting jack rabbits and coyotes in the western parts of the United States.
The Whippet is a very fast racer, calculated to gallop 200 yards at a terrific speed. The Whippet has reportedly been clocked at 40 miles per hour. It is highly rated as a sprinter and considered to be the fastest dog of its size.
As a house pet, the Whippet is recommended because it can adapt to almost any type of home, city apartment or country estate. Also, it has a very affectionate disposition and requires very little care.
Mr. Jacobs estimates that there are at least 25 Whippet breeders in the United States today. This would refer only to persons who breed litters year after year.
"A Whippet is a dog you either like or don't like," say Mr. and Mrs. Jacobs. The greater majority of people don't care for the Whippet because its shape is somewhat unappealing. It has a rather large rib cage and narrow hind quarters. However, the gentle nature of the Whippet makes up for this.
Indeed, the Whippet must be a very versatile animal, performing as racer, hunter, and show dog.

POET REFUSES TO ENTER HEAVEN WITHOUT HIS DOG
Witty Warren, who is well known among the doggy people of Canada as a dog poet, and has caused quite a stir with his latest poem, "Common Clay", declares that he mans every word of it, and if anybody doubts him, he will be at the Halifax show to convince them.
He will exhibit several of Montreal's best dogs, Even if you do not care about dogs, have a chat with him and he will cure you, and you will enjoy the Show. He is well known in Halifax, having exhibited here for several years.
Addressed to Champion "Jack-O-Diamonds"
by his owner, Witty Warren, July 31, 1928.
"Jack you're eighteen pounds of common clay
Without a soul" --the preachers say. Yet,
in all my life, from end to end,
I've never found a truer friend.
Where do we differ, you from me I
know. You have a pedigree. Whilst
I, well, I have a soul.
And yet, I bit the hand that fed And
rocked me in my cradle bed, -Still,
I possess a soul.
But you you've answered all my kicks
With loving looks and tender licks,
But you, -- you haven't got a soul.
They wonder why I love yeu so, --
Well, if the world should want to know. --
There came to me a fatal day
When you remained. She went away.
Oh, how I loathe the preaching kind,
Narrow of soul, and warped of mind,
Whe in churches on the pulpit lean
And call a dog "Unclean, unclean."
Then point me to the "Pearly Gate"
Oh, God, if it should be our Fate
That you and I should stand outside,
Where soul from souless they divide --
I Promise, Jack, I won't pass through
Unless they make a place for you.

The Whippet News c/o E. L. Jacobs Mehemet, Illinois
STANDARD OF THE BREED
General Appearance - The Whippet should be a dog of moderate size, very alert, that can cover a maximum of distance with a minimum of lost motion, a true sporting hound. Should be put down in hard condition but with no suggestion of being muscle-bound.
Head - Long and lean, fairly wide between the ears, scarcely perceptible stop, good length of muzzle which should be powerful without being coarse. Nose entirely black.
Ears - Small, fine in texture, thrown back and folded. Semipricked when at attention. Gay ears are incorrect and should be severely penalized.
Eyes - Large, intelligent, round in shape and dark hazel in color, must be at least as dark as the coat color. Expression should be keen and alert. Light yellow or oblique eyes should be strictly penalized. A sulky expression and lack of alertness to be considered most undesirable.
Teeth - White, strong and oven. Tooth of upper jaw should fit closely over the lower. An undershot mouth shall disqualify.
Neck - Long and muscular, well-arched and with no suggestion of throatiness, widening gradually into the shoulders. Must not have any tendency to a "ewe" neck.
Shoulders - Long, well-laid back with long, flat muscles. Loaded shoulders are a very serious fault.
Brisket - Very deep and strong, reaching as nearly as possible to the point of the elbow. Ribs well sprung but with no suggestion of barrel shape. Should fill in the space between the forelegs so that there is no appearance of a hollow between them.
Forelegs - Straight and rather long, hold in line with the shoulders and not set under the body so as to make a forechest. Elbows should turn neither in nor out and move freely with the point of the shoulder. Fair amount of bone, which should carry right down to the foot. Pasterns strong.
Feet - Must be well formed with strong, thick pads and well-knuckled-up paws. A thin, flat, open foot is a serious fault.
Hindquarters - Long and powerful, stifles well bent, hocks well let down and close to the ground. Thighs broad and muscular, the muscles should be long and flat. A steep croup is most undesirable.
Back - Strong and powerful, rather long with a good, natural arch over the loin creating a definate tuck-up of the underline but covering a lot of ground. Tail - Long and tapering, should reach to a hipbone when drawn through between the hind legs. Must not be carried higher than the top of the back when moving. Coat - Close smooth and firm in texture.
Color - Immaterial.
Size - Ideal height for dogs, 19 to 22 inches; for bitches, 18 to 21 inches. These are not intended to be definate limits, only approximate.
Gait - Low, free moving and smooth, as long as is commensurate with the size of the dog. A short, mincing gait with high knee action should be severely penalized.
Approved November 9, 1955

Avon Kennel Reports
I suppose it inevitably happens that most people who show dogs with some regularity eventually find reason to criticize some aspect or other of the operation. I have, in the past, swallowed my ire over incompetent judges who have failed to appreciate the superior qualities of my entries; under heated barns and over crowded warehouses used as exhibition halls; trophy committees which have failed to provide the advertised awards; unsanitary sanitary facilities; and other real and imagined indignities too numerous and common to delineate. However, a recent incident prompted me to call to attention a condition which I consider a potential threat to all exhibitors.
On April 22 there was to have been Whippet racing at the Decatur, Illinois show. A heavy rain the previous night rendered the track unusable and while we were trying to find an alternate site for the race my puppy bitch out her foot badly. As soon as I discovered the injury I carried her to the attending veterinarian who was there in accordance with AKC regulations. I was appalled to learn from him that he had brought no instruments or supplies with him. Ho was unable to execute even the most elementary first aid to stop the bleeding. I am eternally grateful that he did know the address of an animal hospital several miles away where the wound was treated and stitched.
Luckily the injury healed beautifully, leaving no permanent damage, had it been sore serious a tragedy might have resulted. I later found in discussing this with others that this was not an isolated incident. Several exhibitors related experi encing similar occurrences.
I hope that any readers who are members of kennel clubs sponsoring shows will make a point of calling to the attention of the show committee, Chapter 15, section 2, of the Rules Applying to Registration and Dog Shows of the AKC, which lists among the "Duties and Responsibilities of the Show Veterinarian", will be, among other things "to render first aid". Without this protection, showing and racing becomes a hazzard not worth the risk.
Attention mid–west Whippet owners: Racing! Racing! Dan Kusahara, who recently acquired a lovely brindle puppy do g from Whipoo Kennels, has asked me to help him put on an exhibition racing meet at the annual Japanese American Service Committee picnic on Sunday, August 6. As President of the J. A. S. C. Dan informs me that 4000 to 5000 people attend this event annually. The Committee will offer trophies to high point dogs and will extend every hospitality to entrants. The racing will commence at 11.00 a. m. in order to avoid the hot period of the day-the number of hoots will depend on the number of entries and the weather. The picnic is to be hold at the Picnic Grounds in Northwestern Woods, Riverwood Road and Dempster Street, Des Plains, Illinois. We expect to have a 200 yard track, and if Ralph Eyles has finished his starting boxes by then, we will probably be able to use them. Otherwise the dogs may have to be released by hand, but even so it should be a thoroughly enjoyable occasion. It might also give some of us in northern Illinois an opportunity to plan some future racing events in a more organized way than we have in the past.
Canesco Kennel Reports
May 15, 1961
Sometime ago I promised a report on our new kennel and our new home. My intentions were good, my time was filled, and somehow I never did it. Now the report would be pointless. We remarked when we purchased our acreage that this was the best way we knew to receive an offer from another college that would be too good to refuse. Sure enough: I recently accepted an offer from the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California, so in the fall we will be meeting new Whippets and (we hope) making lots of new friends on the west coast. Don't have a home address there yet, of course, but we'll let you know as soon as we do. In the meantime we will continue to receive mail at the same address. This move will be more complex than a local sort of moves for the problems of moving a kennel 1500 miles is somewhat frightening. We plan to take eight Whippets with us, three dogs and five bitches. Those include two old-timers who have earned whatever we can provide now and three real youngsters, now six months old. We are sorry that Mrs. Howell left San Francisco before we could arrive on the scene. From her report in the last News, we have decided that she is a person after our own heart: We seem to get involved in things that turn out to be almost as hectic as she does, and we know that we would love her. At any rate, we'll try to let those who are interested know how we progress, or regress as the case may be. Honestly, we shudder to think of the complexity of this summer.
I recently received my first communication on the proposed produce and get data. Of course, the success of this project depends on the more or less unanimous cooperation of the Whippet people over the country. I do hope that they will help me to get this thing going completely and accurately. (Send information to — Dr. Samuel Scott, Box 2 1485, Norman, Oklahoma — See April News). Somewhat along this line I wonder if I might possibly provoke some discussion by asking the opinion of breeders regarding pillars of the breed? Who might be called the most influential stud dog and brood bitch in recent American Whippet history? Being a relative new comer to the breed (8 years) my own opinions would have to be based on pedigree study, It does seem that Tiptree Noel and Picardia Fieldfare crop up in a lot of champion pedigrees. I think discussion would be most interesting and perhaps fruitful.
Here's another sticky one, I'm afraid. Do I read our standard incorrectly, or is size supposed to be a secondary factor in the judging of Whippets? With increas ing frequency we seem to be running into judges who will put down an 18 1/2 incher as 'too small" or a 21 1/2 inch dog as being "too big". As I read the standard a top quality 17 1/2 inch bitch should not be penalized (I think Winners Bitch at Chicago in 1960 was about 17 1/2) and a 22 1/2 inch top quality dog might go up. Should size be a judging factor only in the case of animals otherwise equal in quality? If I am wrong I would appreciate correcting my error. If I read the standard correctly, is there any way that the All-Rounders who are so influential might be reminded of this feature in the Whippet standard? I hope that I will get some response to this question.

We had another racing meet here yesterday, Memorial Day, and Mr. Young and Christine Cormany joined us this time. The Turner 's Sandbar is still the favorite but the others are learning rapidly now so we all hope to give our northern friends a little competition during the Specialty weekend in July.

If anyone wants to send them a CARE package, I'm sure they would appreciate it, however the feeding and care is good, and it is only the fact that they are isolated from each other and from the world in general that is so hard for them.
Meanwhile this group has had some success on the continent, and two, Domenic and Isolde, remain, racing the whole season under the colors of Mrs. J. Hugenholtz van de Velde of Den Dolder.
Greet Circle Xenia, Tralee, and Wise Child went to the Amsterdam show on April 23. It is the big show of this part of Europe, comparable to the Garden, and oddly enough is called The Winner. Anyway, we had a winner, Xenia, who won the breed, the Group, and Reserve Best In Show. Every dog shown here is given a critique by the judge, marked excellent, very good, or good (which I suppose is a euphemism). Mr. Von Der Molen liked all three enough to give them excellent, though Tralee did not place in the breeders class, and Wise Child was best puppy. There are three classes in each sex, the Openklasse, judged first, then the Fokkerklasse (bred by exhibitor) and the puppy class, jeugdklasse. They do the Openklasse first I suppose to set the standard by which to judge the rest. To gat a Dutch Championship a dog has to have won four challenge certificates under different judges. There must be twelve months between the first and the fourth certificates and the fourth must be won when the dog is at least twenty seven months of age. The win at the Winner is so important that it counts for two certificates. Poor Xenia, unfinished on two continents, with ten points in the USA and half a championship in Holland. Last Monday she and Wise Child went to their last show here at s'Hertoganbosch. Wise Child was again best puppy under a Belgian judge, Count Robiano, and Xenia got the reserve c.c. to a very nice young bitch of Mrs. Donath's, bred by Mr. Todd in England, by Marksman out of Hildegarde. The Dutch have the most convenient and immaculate benching. It is complete cage, and you just put them in and shut the door. People can easily see through it to look at the dogs. I wish some superintendents from the USA could take a look at it. I'm afraid it is terribly expensive though, as its aluminum of tubular construction. In showmanship they could learn something from us, however, They give very lovely trophies but none are visible to the public (you go and sign for them after the show) and the rings are a little too indefinite with extraneous people apt to be wandering through them. There is quite a conflict of type in Whippets in Europe. The English have sent over a number of dogs, and there are also a great many of straight Dutch or German breeding. All are small by American standards, and there is quite a lot of knee snapping among the European bred ones. Heads vary completely ... either extremely needly or rather round...there are some of mixed European and English background that are more like ours, but of course one shouldn't be looking at them with our breed standard anywhere in one's mind.
As to the racing; unfortunately, the racing and showing here is completely divided, as so luckily it is not in the U. S. A. Race people just don 't show, and vica versa, Some of the race Whippets are very nice type. It is a pity. I started out registering four for racing. Xenia is too small, though she tries, and Little Alice went to quarantine. Alice would not have been in the first rank here anyway. Also size trouble, which is worse on a circular track. The perfect size seems to be just under twenty inches, which is their top limit for racing. They are very strict over this, and every dog has to be officially measured in order to have a racing certificate.
Our main difficulty was with the circular track. It is much more fun to watch, and makes racin g more popular. But for the dogs it is an entirely different tech nique, and they run 300 yards at a time. If they are winning they have to run three or four times in an afternoon, and that is a. long way, at top speed, for a Whippet even in top condition. We began by going to a training set at Ryssen. (You can imagine my confusion..racing at Ryssen). The best they did was 25.6. A week later there was an official race at Ryssen. Carmen was third in the 1/4 final, and David third in the 1/ 2 final. Times about the same. On April 4 Carmen and David raced at Utrecht. Carmen was first in the final, 24.9, with David second. Then we trained several more times in Utrecht. The times began to improve. Both were under 25.00. The time of 25.00 is what seperates the B from the A class races.
Foreign dogs start in B class. On May 5 they went to Rotterdam. Conditions of weather and track were dreadful. Carmen was third in the 1/2 final, David third in the final. All times were bad. The following week they trained again at Utrecht. Carmen -24.5 and David 24.6.
On May 22 the Grand International was held at Utrecht. We had a perfectly top result with a great many Dutch and German dogs in competition. Thanks to Mrs. Husenholtz's dynamic and thorough training, Carmen won the finals in the terrific time of 24.8 (this was her third race of the day) and David was second to his daughter. David also tied for the best time of the day, with 24.5 in the finals.
Mrs. Hugenholtz has taken them over completely now and has some reason indeed to hope for good results in the forthcoming Internationals in Germany, and we can also hope for the best in Switzerland in the fall.
It is very pleasing to note that this dog, imported from England, Ch. Wingedfoot Domenic (David), who won our nationals last year, is able to come over here and do so well. But of course I am equally happy about the fact that David bred to one of the great old race bitches of the U. S. A. , Ch. Great Circle Bewitched, has produced daughter that seems to be able to give him a run for his money.
Congratulations to the Eyles on the win at Chicago this year. In case anyone wants to get hold of me my permanent address from now on will be: "Rockmount", Kilmacthomas, County Waterford, Eire.
Madcap Kennel Reports
Fresno , California
Norman W. Ellis
Last summer found Great Circle Holiday dropping puppies all over the house, with and without my assistance. This year, Holiday's positive personality is terrify ing the Dutch. The puppies are now being supplied by Great Circle Star Gazer (Edit to those who know and loathe her). "Edith" is my first Whippet, bought from my friend end mentor, Wendell T. Howell, who is also in the Netherlands (Have yet to hear how Wendy is effecting the Dutch!).
"Edith" had a well planned romance with Jennie Henderson's Ch. Mad Hatter and the issue looks good and shows promise. There are four bitches, three solid white with dark markings (doe eyes) around the eyes; the other is white with one nice blue spot over one shoulder.
Pebble Beach is this weekend, the Del Monte Dog Show, and we have the good fortune of twenty-one entries in Whippets! Monte and Patti Long are again showing their own Whippets and have a large entry at this show. This will sharpen the competition considerably.
We are eagerly awaiting the Whippet Specialty at the Santa Barbara Dog Show. Dot Frames has been working her head off trying to make this a big success.
My young bitch, great Circle Tosca, went Best of Breed at the Oakland Kennel Club show and showed well in the G roup, considering she had to put up with the extremely nervous and jerky handling of her owner. It really seems a loss that her sire, Ch. Wingedfoot Domenic has returned to Europe and the British Islands with his owner, Wendy Howell. He has some very good offspring at the shows. It will be interesti ng to see how his grandchildren out of his daughter "Edith" do at the shows?
Seven League Whippets Report
D. R. Motch
April 27, 1961
I am very pleased and proud to report that on Monday the 24th of April at the Harford County Kennel Club show I finished Seven League Sunday Best. That win gave him his 6th Best of Breed out of 7 times shown! Twice he went over Specials, he had three majors and scored all his wins against competition. Four times he placed second in the Hound Group: Boston, Norfolk, Old Dominion and Harford County; once to the Best in Show dog (Old Dominion which had 1080 dogs), once to the Best American Bred at Harford County, and twice he defeated two of the dogs that had been placed second to previously. I consider myself very fortunate to own a dog who has been so kindly received by both judges and exhibitors alike.
We are eagerly looking forward to a litter of what will be his full brothers and sisters which rare due to make their appearance next week. Another equally eagerly waited litter is on the way also. Through the generosity of Mr. John Hutchins of San Antonio, I was able to purchase from him a half interest in Ch. Meander Mockingbird, a full sister to Bob-White and Kingfisher and herself the winner of the 1959 Specialty. She is in whelp to his Ch. Bull O’ The Woods O’ Blue Beaver, who is a many times BIS winner. Both dogs being bred along the same lines, big things are expected. As in all dog matters that pertain to breeding, time will tell.
Finally, after what has seemed to be endless Winter, Spring is here, and the dogs seem to be as ready for it as we are. Yesterday Sunday Best caught a butterfly in the kennel and the house pet, Spot, bagged one in the yard. An amusing sight if ever I saw one.
Strathoak Kennels Report
May 21, 1961
Chalk up another for Flirt! (Whipoo's Silken Elegance, C.D.) Patches (Strathoak White Velvet) made it yesterday and put up a hard fight for 4th spot in the Group. Judge for breed and Group was Alfred Lopine, show was Beverly Riviera Kennel Club. Reserve was Dot Frames' Piperkins Patience. Only other entry was our puppy, Strathoak Velvet Mist who had a gay time at her first show and behaved very nicely. She was sold at the show to Robert F. Davis and Konrad Stevens who have Italian Greyhounds, and they, incidentally did very well with their young male IG, from Winners Dog to Best of Winners and then Best of Breed over a Specials in an entry of 14!!
Plans for the Specialty are coming along nicely and from all indications we are going to have a pretty nice day of it. Mrs. Gibson and I are working on a display and hope to work up something nice and attractive for the ring and benching.
With just Dottie around things are rather empty, but we hope someday to have a youngster around to keep things moving. We were unsuccessful in our attempt to breed Dottie (not her fault tho!) but at least we will be able to get her into peek form for the two big shows for Whippet fanciers, the Harbor Cities late June with Harry Peters and of course the Specialty in July with Peggy Newcombe. We are all looking forward to those two events. Entries are closing for Pasadena Kennel Club and from indications we will have a rather nice turn out there.
May 31, 1961
NEWS ITEM FROM CALIFORNIA: Apparently Strathoak Velvet Mist is going to follow
in the footsteps of the other Strathoaks, under the guidance of her new owner (one of them) Bob Davis, "Misty" took Best Hound in Match at San Fernando in a Sanction Match of nearly 400 entries, date was May 29th. Judge, Mr. Tetly (I believe).
May 30th, Mr. Young with his Magna Carta, Dot Frances with her Spot and Patch, the Turners with Sandbar and Pixie, myself with Dottie, enjoyed a most wonderful afternoon with the Af ghan Sighthound group in Santa Ana. Magna Carta and Dottie had never been muzzled or out of boxes before and did well for the first time out. The track was well over 200 yards and all the Whippets did it at least three times. Mid-west better watch out for this Sandbar dog, ho is going to be hard to catch once he learns the know how:
NEWS FLASH.. Pasadena Kennel Club, Dr. Frank Porter Miller subs. for Dr. Rex B. Foster, 6 Whippets, 5 bitches - 1 Special. Winners Bitch, Chuck & Sue Turner's Lady Swift of Piperkins, giving her a 2nd major. Reserve, a newcomer, owned by Flakkee Kennels (Kees fame). Best of Breed and 3rd in Group under Edith Nash Hellerman, Ch. Strathoak Starsheen. Needless to say we are pleased & delighted.
TuBara Kennel Reports Bill & Barbara Heiser June, 1961
This is our first report to the Whippet News and will be but a brief one.
We are pleased to announce that we have finished two bitches and a dog from our last litter, all in the last two and a half months. We seem to have good success in getting the Winners ribbon, but fail dismally when it comes to BOB. One bitch actually finished and never went BOB, and the other two only one or two BOB's apiece, these before Mr. John R. Hutchins. Sam Hearn began campaigning their tremendous dog, Ch. Bull O' The Woods O' Blue Beaver. He seems to be unbeatable in the breed, and Bull seems well on his way to a fine show record, possibly the equal of Ch. Fleeting Falcon's. We all hope Bull makes many friends for the breed.
One bitch is soon to be bred and before long there will be puppies underfoot again. Worm new enough that there is still excitement and anticipation in waiting to see what comes from our breeding program (or maybe this excitement never fades).
We had a delightful time at the International and enjoyed meeting everyone there.
Whipoo Kennel Reports Sibyl & Gene Jacobs June, 1961
We were very sorry that the races scheduled as entertainment at the Decatur Illinois show had to be called off because of "The Rain", which made what is usually a good dirt track, ankle deep in mud. There was no other safe place to race in the vicinity of the show grounds. We want to thank everyone who entered dogs for the show, loaded in extra race dogs , and all the helpers, and Whippet owners who came with dogs just in case we could race. There were at least 15 dogs for the racing,
so we sincerely hope we can get together again with more favorable weather conditions.
We enjoy reading the other kennel reports very much, and presently, enjoy the re p orts by Wendy Howell of her travels. Keep up the news reports, Wendy!
Received a letter from Kathleen Beargie of Denver, Colorado. She would like to know who the great foundation sires and dams were in Whippets, (This could be determined from the get and produce statistics), what they did for the breed, where they come from, and who owned them. She would like a treatise on the biology of the
breed - does hip dysplasia occur here? - Any special spinal column troubles associat ed with the arched back? - Missing teeth? - How is coat color inherited in Whippets? Why are Whippet litters not uniform? - Why so many birth defects? - Any other biological oddities?
There is certainly a lot of meat to Kathleen's questions. We believe the Whippet News is the place to discuss such questions instead of an All Breed magazine as has happened in some breeds. How about it readers and breeders?
New Experiences with a Whippet
Mrs. E. B. Hopkins
The first mission in life for our Ch . Whipoo's Whimsy, C.D. (Junior at home) was as a companion, but it has been exciting to let him follow his instincts and help him develop his potentials, which we never dreamed would be so many and varied. Early Obedience training is a MUST at our house because we require good manners in our dogs. He still has the deepest respect for Elmer, our 12 year old Cocker who helped train and raise him. Following his C. D. title at 6 months, calm in rapid succession his show career, followed by the racing excellence which came so naturally.
Most recently, Junior and my husband have taken to the fields to hunt rabbits together with a great zeal. They haven't stabilized their plan of attack yet, but generally, it seems that if Junior sees the game first he makes the kill and Hop retrieves, but if Hop sights the rabbit, he shoots and both retrieve. At any rate, both are having a dandy time sharing a new game and Junior is as enthusiastic about the game and hunting equipment as his racing gear.
The oddest sport we all participate in is when driving on a country road, any night my season. Junior sitting very erect between us, peering intensely from side to side of the road, ears twitching and head jerking until we are all looking for rabbits. And Hop says, "Gosh, what a way to hunt!"
Finally, at home he begs to share a chair. Times when we get tired of being crowded and refuse, he assumes an END OF THE TRAIL APPEARANCE and slumps away to his own bed and utters an occasional low moan.
Report From The Southwest Hyde Park Whippet and Lager Society
The Southwest Hyde Park Whippet and Lager Society was founded in January of 1960 when all the Whippet people of the area agreed to meet at regular intervals for the purposes of furthering the cause of international Whippetry and improving the quality of domestic brew. At the first meeting of this courageous band, three resolutions were agreed upon: 1) The annual dues were to be one stein of lager which would constitute the society's president's honorarium. 2) No record of meetings would be kept, lest the temptation of blackmail corrupt the membership. 3) Any person expressing a desire to join the society is automatically a member and no person may, for any reason what ever, stomp off in a huff and resign. Membership in the H.P.W.L.S. is eternal, following the possessor to the grave-and beyond. Having accomplished this Herculean feat, the membership immediately retired to the local pub to pay its first dues.
During the year and a half of our existence many exciting things have occurred, most of which I have been well paid to suppress. However, I may report that our membership has increased by a third in the past 18 months which certainly shows no dirth of energy on our part. On the other hand, when Harriet Freese joins her husband in Washington, D.C., this summer, meeting attendance will be likely to fall off by 33 1/3 % unless another member comes along.
Since this is basically an apolitical organization geography will be no barrier to membership. Anyone interested will be immediately enscribed on the club rolls by communicating with: Your obedient servant, Bill Fields, Recording Secretary and Historian, Hyde Park Whippet and Lager Society.
THE MAIL BAG
Leroy E. Creek, Odessa, Texas, writes:
I sincerely enjoy the Whippet Yews. I especially enjoyed the pictures in the April issue and hope we can have one of these pages of snapshots in every issue. Mrs. Jacobs is holding three mighty pretty Whippets in that page of snapshots. Sure would like to know the height and weight of the Whippets that have won the International Whippet races for the last four or five seasons.
Christine Cullen, owner of Stoney Meadows Leo, writes:
Leo is fine. He has been full of pep ever since Spring came. He is a year old now. I think that Whippets are not only good runners but ore very good pets. They aren't jumpy or scared. They are loyal, clean, and very friendly. I would like to know if anyone has a rig for racing near me ( Gladwyne, Pa.) because Leo is a very good runner and I would like to train him near Philadelphia. I think it would be fun to race Leo in a race and I think Leo would like it too.
V. M. Martinson, Fredericton, N. B., Canada, writes:
While Whippets were quite active in this area twenty years ago, in the past decade very few hove been owned or even shown in the Maritimes, the F.K.C. boasted of seven entries and drew rather a favorable comment, more so when Calvin G. Perry's Am. Ch. Stoney Meadows Sprint, after winning the Hound Group, went on to take Best in Show, we managed to get a good picture of this in the local paper and I will be sending the same picture up to Dogs in Canada for publishing and should be in the June issue of this magazine.
Jacque Tucker, Washington, D. C., writes:
I'm afraid there is very little to report in these parts. Our Spring show was very nice though with 426 dogs entered in the show and 52 in Obedience. However, there wore only five Whippets - my Christine who took Best Local Whippet (she was the only local). Mr. Motch had four of his Whippets. Best Whippet went to his Seven League Sunday Best, Winners Bitch to Seven League Serenissima, Best Opposite Sex to Seven League Serenissima, Best of Winners to Seven League Sunday Best, and Reserve to Seven League Boots. I believe that is right, sorry if I'm wrong. Those Seven League Whippets are truly beautiful and surely deserve those nice wins. I hope they make their championships in nothing flat and I'm sure they will. I look forward to seeing them again soon. We have recently moved to Washin gton, D.C. and I don't know where anything is, but soon as I do find out about the shows I want to go. Being from the country like we are you can imagine what an awful time I have getting across the streets and so on. When my husband retires from the Navy I hope to go Straight back to the country also. The Whippets love it and my mother Chihuahua loves to go out, but it isn't for me.
