cross country course in a Combined Training competition.

A whippet story A short story captured by snapshots of my first whippet, Miss Priss, and my sister's first sheltie, Lilly
Some candid shots Prissy (short for Miss Priss) was my first whippet who lived up to her name.
Patches was my second whippet who I 'rescued' from the pet store (she was there for about 5 months). Holly was a whippet I got for my niece on her 5th birthday.
Jewel was my first greyhound and a really smart one; e.g.,without being taught,she would get the newspaper in any kind of weather; she would bring her toy(s) in from outside when asked.
And, of course, there are pictures of my new gang (Ivy, Pi, Delta)
Whippet Versatility Weekend (2000) Some shots of the family racing (Ivy - the mother; Pi & Delta - daughters; Ted E - son)
This proved to be a very successful weekend for the family. Overall versatility awards were given to dogs entered in all 4 competitions (straight racing, u-val racing, showing/obedience, & lure coursing). Delta came in 1st, Pi in 4th and Ivy in 11th. Ted E was having some soreness due to having a splinter in one of his pads a few days earlier, but he did compete the 2nd and 4th day. Other major accomplishments: Ted E came in 4th on the u-val and Delta 5th with the same number of points which resulted in both getting 5 ORC points. These were Ted E's first and Delta's last ones needed to get her ORC title. In lure coursing, both the Open and Field Champion Stake were split. Pi was 1st in her open stake which gave her the Field Champion title and Delta was 1st in her Open stake, the first time she lure coursed. Delta beat Pi in the run-off for top Open whippet and she went on to win Best of Breed. Ted E was 4th in his Open stake (I think his pad might have been bothering him during his last run as he was not putting out as much as he usually does).
