Nine of the 11 pups that were born to Silver, the whippet pet of Mary Beth Strauss, 16, of 4969 N. 21st st., show their affection for their mistress. The litter is unusual for a whippet, which ordinarily has five to eight puppies. If you are wondering what you can name a group of characters like that, these are the names that the Strausses gave the puppies: Blitz, Boris, Natasha, Oliver, Dudley, Dinky, Tonto, Garloo and Beatrice. The 11th puppy died before naming. Journal Photo by George P. Kashallek, Jr.

ART MUSEUM CRECHE — These are some of the figures in the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art's Neapolitan Christmas creche on display through the holidays. At left is one of the "travelers" and his dog who accompanied the Magi. The other is a peasant who arrived to peddle produce to the crowds gathered at the inn. The crèches became both status symbol and work of art in Naples during the 17th and 18th centuries. Some of the best artists of that period produced creche figures.

Whippets

I judged at Edinburgh some years ago and mentioned in my notes that a great many of Scottish exhibits were rather lacking in bone and substance and there were many with bad feet. I am glad to say that I saw little of this and there were many fine Scottish-bred Whippets in the ring. Both puppy classes went to Scotland . It is such a pity more attention is not given to teeth, there were many dirty teeth arid quite a few bad mouths. There is no excuse for dirty teeth and it is mentioned so often in judge's notes it really is very surprising that exhibitors do not attend to this very important item more.

Puppy D (7): 1 Lindsay's Manseburn Falstaff, very nice fawn, covers lots of ground, specially good in shoulders and neck, excellent feet, moved well; 2 Markham's Scindia Almer, striking 9 months parti, lots of quality, good topline. nice front. Not quite the quarters and movement of winner; 3 Third's Kiteila Barry, biggish puppy, good type, moved with drive and had not quite the shoulders and feet of those above. Nov D (4): 1 Heywood's Bricoli of Brough, lovely fawn, especially good in neck and front, strong quarters, good topline, moved well; 2 McKay's Laguna Lottery, fawn, nice quality covers plenty of ground. Not quite the bone or condition of winner; 3 S Almer. Grad D (8): 1 Nicholas's Longlen Oakbark Masterminde, parti-colour, specially good in neck and front, good feet, fine firm strong loin, nice turn of stifle; 2 Zurbriggen's Blik's Harque to Queensbury, parti-colour who, 1 see, is by the same sire as winner, Oh Flarepath Tambillo Tarquin, who, alas, is now in America. Striking dog in good condition, fine neck and shoulder, really good all round but just lost to winner in depth and stifle; 3 Bricoli of B. Limit D (8): 1 Blair and Fenwick's Seapool Shawn of Baydale, outstanding red fawn, lovely quality dog, good clean shoulders, strong quarters, moved well and with drive, beautiful condition, shows well. Res CC; 2 George's Garganey Sweet William, both lovely Whippets, good neck and shoulders, excellent bone and feet, moved well. Perhaps carrying a shade too much weight; 3 B H to Queensberry. Open D (8): 1 McKay's Laguna Lunanute, stood out on his own, tremendous quality, super neck, really lovely front and shoulders, nice length of loin, moved well, in perfect condition. Worthy winner of CC and BOB; 2 S Shawn of B; 3 Watson's Ch Towercrest Flarepath Taurus, well - known winner, worthy champion, lovely dog but did not have much sparkle today, perhaps he felt the heat.

Puppy B (12); 1 Binning's Troutburn Silver Moon, beautiful and charming fawn baby I really fell in love with! 6 months old and showing with more confidence than many an old stager, she won this large c lass well. Beautiful neck and shoulders, good deep brisket, nice topline and quarters, moved really straight and true. Surely one with a future; 2 Knight's Dondelayo Duette, beautiful 8 months fawn, mature puppy of great quality, good bone, nice topline and quarters. Moved well but failed to winner in front; 3 Ledger's Tradewind Capercaille, 8 months particolour, strikingly marked, deep brisket, good quarters. Little on the plump side and movement a little uncertain, went better in next class. Nov B (10): 1 T Capercaille; Hemstock's Baobab of Brough, very nice classy fawn, nice spring of rib; good strong quarters, nice bone. Not quite the depth of brisket of winner bat should improve with maturity; 3 Lindsay's Manseburn Gretel, nice fawn and not much between these two but was inclined to flatten and lose her topline on the move. Grad B (9): 1 Mackenzie's Bargate Brilliant Duchess, racey brindle I have judged before and always Liked. Most beautiful neck and front, lovely topline, good quarters, one of the best movers today, goes with real drive; 2 Smither's Ravensheugh Anita. beautiful rich red fawn, a colour which 1 would like to see more of. Great depth, good front and quarters, strong and good loin, beautiful feet. These two were close, winner just had it in neck but she is a lovely bitch. Another really sound mover; 3 Dick and Jones's Wyemere Sweet Solera, pretty parti, masses of quality, nice all over, moved well. Not quite depth of brisket to those above. Limit B (101: 1 Peden's Denorsi Quick Match of Glenbervie, good type fawn, nice size, good front, depth, length of loin and spring of rib; 2 B Brilliant Duchess; 3 Nicholas's Lowglen Micant Madonna, nice fawn of quality, it was a pity she did not go with more drive. Was very unwilling and never got her hocks under her. I'm sure if it had been a cooler day she would have gone better. Open B (11): 1 Knight's Oh Dondelayo Roulette, beautiful quality bitch, gained yet another CC. If only all Whippets could have a coot like this, really lovely. Showed to perfection but failed in shoulder to dog for BOB; 2 Armstrong's Trevelmond Miss Masquerade. lovely fawn of tremendous quality and could hardly have been closer on the heels of winner. Excels in neck and front, showed to perfection but far too happy moving, a naughty miss who spoilt the overall picture, but a worthy res CC winner; 3 D Quick Match of G.

SELBROOK WHIPPETS

SELBROOK BRACELET won her First CC at Paignton on her return to the ring after rearing her litter by Ch DEEPRIDGE MINTMASTER We have a show standard Bitch puppy for sale and three 9 month old Dogs suitable Coursing or Racing Also puppies, 11 weeks; for Pets or Racing VERY REASONABLE PRICES Mrs I R SELBY & Mr D C SELBY BROOK COTTAGE RAMSDELL, BASINGSTOKE, HANTS Telephone Tadley 4379

I had a very nice quality lot of Whippets to judge, and a very nice jolly lot of exhibitors, and as long as we have both, we have something to be proud of. Many otherwise very good Whippets, were far too fat, which spoils their chance of winning in hot company. Also we must watch back quarters, as many tend to move very close behind. On the whole we have some very lovely Whippets and we have a breed to be proud of.

Puppy D (2): 1 Gilpin's Wenonah Coraline. quite a nice fawn, but very raw at the moment. Will improve. Was very cold; 2 Pierce's Harann Gay Gordon, nice looking parti, good body. Very sloppy at the moment. Nov D (7): 1 Hoare's Zulu's Black Diamond, really lovely jet black, quite the best I have seen for some time, in lovely sparkling condition, beautiful head, neck and body, lovely legs an good feet, good loin. Should go far; 2 McKay's Laguna Lottery, very nice blue/fawn, rather a dull colour, you have to look twice to see how nice he is. Not at his best, been in barbed-wire; 3 Yearsley's Meadoar Ali Cat, quite a nice brindle, but wants to make up quite a lot yet, feeling the cold. Grad D (10): 1 Flatt's Flarepath Astrinomical, most striking high quality young dog, correct head, neck and shoulders, beautiful body. good in all parts. f feel sure will reach the top pretty soon; 2 Z Black Diamond; 3 Escott's Marlins Coch-y-Bondhu, very striking f/w, very nice in all ways, good body, neck, shoulders, legs and feet, very nice. Limit D (8): I Clay's Tantivvey Akeferry Crusader, very rich old time brindle, good honest dog, lovely head, neck and shoulders, good body. Could do with a bit more weight to improve him, moved very well; 2 Ironside's Poltesco Merry Monarch, very nice all round fawn of nice make and shape, good body. I Did not move too well; 3 Boundy's Sticklepath Station Master, very nice dog in the making, I like him a lot and think he will make a good one. At the moment is apt to be sloppy, when he tightens up all round and matures, will do well. Open D (7): What a class of good quality dogs, all of them really good ones. I eventually picked four which in my opinion were all worthy champions, and movement decided for me. 1 Chapman's Walhachin, most beautiful and elegant quality f/w, does not always put all in, but today he was at his best, showed and moved beautifully and never put a foot wrong. Fully deserved the CC and BOB - 2 Boundy's Ch Sticklepath Saracen, beautiful dog in every way, it was only his bad manners in sniffing after a "lady" who had left her scent behind, that lost him the 1st. Res CC; 3 the lovely Flarepath Astrinomical, also on the sniff, boys will he boys, I suppose.

Puppy B (10): I Anderson's Tweseldown Whinchat, most lovely and elegant quality rich red, well matured puppy, good neck and body, lovely loins, moves beautifully; 2 Lowe's Nimrodel Withywindel, charming red, good in all parts, lovely body, good mover; 3 Hunter's Wenorah Simoon of Larchwood, lovely coloured face fawn in superb condition, beautiful head, neck and shoulders. just would not move, might have been the cold. 1 was half frozen myself. Nov B (121: 1 T Whinchat: 2 Cosway's Longhay Superstar, very nice all round parti, good neck and shoulders, lovely body, legs and feet, in lovely condition: 3 Lowe's Nimrodel Withywindel, very nice bitch, good in all parts. ( Did not go too well, but then the ring I was pretty smelly. Grad B (10): 1 Treavis's Copersdown Cowslip, most lovely and charming pale fawn of great quality, lovely body, legs and feet, good neck, moved well. Real Whippet. I like her a lot; 2 Ironside's Poltesco Quilla, very good parti, I liked for her all round quality and soundness. moved well; 3 Mackenzie's Bargate Brilliant Dutchess, very nice quality brindle, good in most parts. Bit on the light side, when she puts on a bit more weight all round, will be very nice indeed. Limit B (9): 1 C Cowslip; 2 B Brilliant Dutchess; 3 Selby's Selbrook Firecall, very nice fawn, not going too well owing to the cold. Open B (61: 1, CC, Selby's Selbrook Bracelet, very elegant and all quality fawn, lovely body, legs and feet, beautiful front and back view, moved well and stood beautifully; 2 Cleeve's Dragonhill Knot, lovely charming all quality beauty. I only wish she were mine. Res CC; 3 Robinson Majic Penny. very nice parti, good body, nice all-round bitch. POPPY MARTIN (Judge)

STRATFORD-ON-AVON,

Dec 6 , 1969

(Midland Whippet C)

It was a great pleasure to judge the 19 classes at the Midland Whippet Club limited show, which was held at an excellent venue. warm and light, ideally suited to Whippets.

The quality of the exhibits was extremely high, especially the youngsters, and a number of these, I am sure, will hit the high spots during 1970. Best in show was Hawthorn's Deepridge Mineva, delightful cream/br/w bitch. really took my eye, so feminine and well balanced, lovely reach of neck, good shoulders, moving and standing she looks a picture. Best opp sex was Goldsmith's Toppall Newbold Miguel, f/w dog, quality exhibit, impresses with his overall quality, nice head, good reach of neck, stands over his ground with ease, moved well. Best -puppy was Argyle's Marque to Pegasus, fawn dog who at 10 1/2 months is already well known, soundly constructed, good spring of rib and depth of chest, powerful hindquarters, born showman. Other first prize winners were: Nicholson's Cockrow Woodchuck, 7 months br/w, well developed body, nice bead, good front, sound mover; Odell's Shalfleet Sailing Free, fawn baby, I think this was his first show, but this did not deter him. good overall conformation. Just needs to tighten in front; Hawthorn's f/w, Deepridge Minstrel. just 12 months old, in excellent condition, nice tight coat, well balanced, nice tight coat, well balanced throughout, covered his ground well. Brother to BIS winner and 'very similar; Knight's Dondelayo Reprint, blue/ fawn, in lovely condition, really tight coat and firm muscle, very nice outline, showed well and moved steadily: Nicolson's Steelbridge of Glenbervie, off white youngster whose colour does not do him justice. Extremely sound dog, well developed firm body, good pigmentation, covers his ground well. I particularly liked his front movement; Harrison 's Whispers Sunny Future, extremely sweet feminine baby, lovely head, neck and shoulders. As yet undeveloped as one would expect in one so young, yet she showed her charms with assurance. I will watch her progress with interest; Minns's Juneric Soloette, f/w. good head, neck and shoulders, well developed body. Not quite as steady in movement as Sunny Future; Lowe's Nimrodel Belladonna, blue bitch of 11 months, well boned and extremely graceful, good outline, moved well; Pierce's Gipsy Princess of Glenbervie, fawn bitch, unfortunate to come up against Mineva, nicely proportioned, in good condition. Just needs time to settle in front movement; Joye-Jones's Harann Sunfly of Glenbervie, mostly white bitch, extremely sound and well developed, good bone and pigmentation, nice head, moved and showed well; and Meek's Poltesco Pretty Maid, sweet fawn bitch with white trim, lovely tight coat, good head, neck and shoulders. I just felt she was carrying a little too much over the loin, moved soundly.

OXFORD , Jan 24, 1970
(Whippet C)

I enjoyed my day immensely at The Whippet C limited show at Oxford. My stewards, the secretary and committee looked after me so well, and I appreciated such a lovely entry. The overall quality was very high indeed, particularly in the puppy bitch classes. In some of the weaker classes I did find the height disparity between certain exhibits so great that they might also have been different breeds! However, these were in the minority. I think hind movement needs watching; quite a few dogs moved very close behind and lacked drive. Best in show, Selbrook Bracelet; reserve, Tweseldown Glentopknot; best dog, Ballagan Loch Loyal; best puppy, Walkabout Woodbine.

Winners were: Hoare's Zulu's Black Diamond, magnificent black, in lovely bloom, well developed for age, good steady mover. Best black; Wright's Pimlico of Crawshaw, spectacular br/ w, covers a lot of ground standing and on the move. Tall, but at nearly a year old, should have finished growing; Bennett's Millrace of Hardknott, fawn/w, very masculine, moving with real drive. I would like him a little finer through shoulders, but the general picture was balanced and good; Selby's Selbrook Bright Lancer, silver fawn/w dog, good topline, nice spring of rib. Did not move as well as I know he can; Worsfold's Summersway Golden Facile, red fawn, in lovely bloom, good excellent front, topline and hocks. moved using every limb to the full extent: Boundy's Sticklepath Station Master, fawn white trim. I have admired him from the ringside. Covers a lot of ground, good racy outline, well let down hock,. Sadly today he was throwing his elbows in front. I have never seen him do this before; Thompson's Walkabout Woomera, really sound mover. I would like him with more condition but understand he had pined while his owner was on holiday; Lowe's Mancot Ptolemy, blue with lots of quality, well muscled, good second thigh. Needs to flatten in topline a little . Best blue; Selway's Ballagan Loch Loyal, br/w, right size for a dog and quite masculine enough, beautifully muscled, great quality, good spring of rib, lovely head and neck. It is sad that that there are not more dogs of this size with his substance. BOS.

Ussher's Iniskhelltr Bewitched, breathtaking brindle, lovely racy outline 'but I well let down nevertheless. Moved better than many of her elders. One I would dearly like to take home; Anderson's Tweseldown Doublet, lovely fawn puppy, very feminine. lovely neck and shoulders, good hock placement, moved with drive; Thompson 's Walkabout Woodbine, glamorous cream puppy, different in type from many I put up in that she is more solid and compact. Moved faultlessly as did all exhibits from this kennel. Best puppy; Harrison 's Whispers Sunny Future, a hair's breadth separated her from 1. I just preferred the head of winner. Really beautiful red fawn, stands over a lot of ground, moves with great drive from the hocks; Lowe's Nimrodel Belladonna, lovely rangy blue. I noticed that all the blue exhibits I admired most were by the same sire; Brookes's Party Girl of Allways, I really loved this red fawn, in lovely coat and condition, nice deep body, good strong quarters, well developed second thigh, lovely head and neck, moved with confidence. Limit bitch was the most marvelous class. All beautiful bitches. Selby 's Selbrook Bracelet, fawn I have reported on before. I have never seen her move so well, really tried and kept it up for he challenge for BIS. Very feminine, right size, lovely layback of shoulders and tuck up of loin; Nimrodel Wintersweet, cream fawn, unlucky to meet above. Full of quality but without quite the maturity of Bracelet. Movement a little unsettled today; Meek's Poltesco Pretty Maid, adorable red fawn with white trim. So feminine and of a type I admire immensely; Anderson's Tweseldown Glentepknot, was BIS. Red fawn with white blaze. Too well-known to need my comments. The final decision was a very difficult one, but I just preferred the outline of Bracelet; Mancot Bonny Kate. outstanding fawn, good head, neck and shoulder placement. Just scored in loin over Wintersweet; Walton's Ringdove Gay Vagabond, lovely brindle dog, very sound mover. I would like a little more neck: Skelley's Ringmore Linnet, f/w, stood over a lot of ground, good mover, in excellent coat; Smith's Nimrodel Bergamot. blue bitch, looks lovely standing but front movement needs improvement; Francis's Franciscan Polyanthus. tall cream bitch, well muscled up toe 15 months. Really looks as it she can go. I felt her size . was not important in the racing coursing class.

WHIPPETS

I have had a letter from Telford, Salop, from Miss Hall who has some interesting comments to make on blues. She says, "I was most interested in your remarks concerning blue Whippets, as my foundation bitch is silver-blue from line of blue and black Whippets, some carrying the of the Barn prefix, a lot Of Tiptree breeding and many of the famous dogs of yesteryear such as Chs Mighty Atom, Golden Arrow and Conquisitor, Kaffir King, Happy Landings. Back to blues and "hat I have seen since 1963.

1 'Blues look coarse.' My bitches don't, thought my blue dog coarse when a pup, but at six months at a breed show he looked bitchy compared with other puppy digs. so what are they like now ?

2 'Coats not as shiny.' This I would say ' depends on feeding and general care. One of my blue bitches from my first litters a pleasure to groom. It is most satisfying to polish her up and without 'coat lotion, rubbed in either

3 'Longer to mature.' The animals in this family never gain their final adult state until two to three years, which seems to me to be a reassonable time for a hound to mature.

"I have purposely kept my observations to my own dogs as 1 have been to very few championship shows in the past three years. However, last year when I actually got to a breed show I noticed particularly that many of the Whippets now being exhibited lack drive from the hindquarters. Perhaps they are kept purely as a 'show breed. If so I think that graduall y Whippets could lose their gradually qualities as a hunting dog, which incidentally have given the breed its fitness and general soundness. Surely this is something to be appreciated and valued. A few years ago, unless one's Whippet could really move powerfully from behind. there was I ttle chance of getting in the cards. More experienced people than myself may shoot me down in flames for presuming to criticise the breed after a few years as part of it, I love Whippets and would not like to see them reduced to being 'exhibition specimens: separated breed, like Greyhounds.
I shall persevere with my blues, even though am well aware by now that there is usually an 'if' to he considered."

There ought to he a lot of food for thought there, both on blues points! JOANNA RUSSELL.

Whippets ... off and away!

Who says a Whippet can't star on an obstacle course? Of course, it can! Here's the proof!

The exhibition of field trial work is not an actual field trial, as such, but rather a competitive exhibition in an indoor setting. This is one of the special attrac­ tions for which the International Kennel Club show is known.

There were also four separate Whippet races, three Afghan contests and one Borzoi racing event.


CH. HOLLYPARK HONEY BEE

 

She's one sweet Whippet!

That the judges concur with this opinion is obvious in Honey Bee's rapidly building record. Making her debut as a Special under Derek Rayne with Best Of Breed and 11 Group Placement, this lovely bitch has quickly acquired 16 Best Of Breed and 11 Group Placements. This, in the West's hotly contested Breed and Group competition.

Honey Bee stepped into some mighty demanding footsteps as she has taken over the place left by her famous sire, Ch. Stoney Meadow's Royal Fortune, who retired early this year after an out­ standing show career with handler Bob Hastings.

Now with the same handler as her illustrious sire, Honey Bee's early record promises similar success in the show ring. She is owned by Dr. Patrick and Barbara Baymiller of San Jose, California.
