THE LADIESFIELD WHIPPETS

owned by Mrs WIGG

Ch LADIESFIELD TOPAZ Ch LADIESFIELD STARTURN

I SUPPOSE the best way to sum up the activities at Ladiesfield is to say that Mrs Wigg is a devoted Whippeteer with a fetish. Devotion there certainly is when we consider the extreme cleanliness of the kennels and the great freedom allowed the inhabitants. A fetish is obvious when talking to the owner who has gone in for colour breeding in a really big way.

Blacks and parti-colour blacks of extremely high quality abound at Ladiesfield and it is interesting to note that the only black champion Whippet in England, namely Ladiesfield Starturn, was bred, raised and exhibited by Mrs Wigg. It must also be remembered that these blacks are bred for a dual purpose because not only do they win in breed com­ petition but they also compete with the best in Whippet races.

I am told that Ladiesfield Black Currant is mainly responsible for the racing stock, one of her progeny, Black Magic, now in the Midlands, putting up some excellent performances.

Undoubtedly 20 years of devoted colour breeding has shown results as witness the number of first class exhibits that have gone to France, Norway, the USA, etc. I have often said that the strength of a kennel lies in the quality of puppies produced and it was particularly interesting when visiting Ladiesfield to see several lovely litters all teeming with quality and temperament.

It may seem invidious to select just one from so many good puppies but I must mention and forecast a great future for Ladiesfield Dazzler, a dog puppy resembling so much his celebrated sire Ladiesfield Bedazzled both in colour and quality. As a matter of fact it became increasingly obvious when studying these litters that Bedazzled is a very dominant sire, producing Whippets of the correct size and conformation.

Other studs at Ladiesfield include, of course, Rugged Blue of Allways and the multiple best of breed winner Ladiesfield Sanderling who is a grandson of the well loved Ch Ladiesfield Topaz.

It would certainly interest other Whippeteers and seekers of first class puppies to pay a visit to these kennels where the same kindly reception will be given as that I enjoyed during my call. FRED CURNOW

THE INADOWN

Kennel of Whippets

THE 1964 has been a most successful one for the Inadown Whippets. At Cruft's Ch INADOWN WHISPERING WITCH won her first CC under Mr Douglas Todd. Mr E Griffiths awarded her second CC at Bath championship (she was also best of breed) and her title was gained when Mr Fred Curnow gave her the CC at Brighton championship show. Witch was born on October 16, 1962. She is an attractive particolour (dark blue and white). Her career, to date, has been spectacular.

In 1963, while only ten months, Mr Ken Bounden made her best in show at Shepton Mallet open show. Since then, she has won several top awards. Some of them are: best in show West Country Dog Club (F Parsons); best in show Salisbury open show (K Bounden), best opposite sex Bristol Terrier Club all breed show ( W Fullwood); best of breed under Mr B Newton, Miss J Stevenson, Mr F Curnow and Mr K Bounden. In addition, judges who have awarded her first prizes include Miss G Dasher (Windsor championship show), Mr F Cross, Me W Burrow, Mr W N Bradshaw, Mr I Strawson, Mrs H Stancombe and Mrs Lola M Daly.

Witch will be bred from in the near future, as will her dam, Selbrook Rushlight, who was the foundation bitch of this kennel. Rushlight was sired by Ch Evening Star of Allways, her dam was Porthurst Creme-de-Menthe. Other well known dogs of which Rushlight was the dam include Purple Mixture (now owned by Mrs K Chapman), Inadown Olympus (Mr and Mrs T Rosser) and Inadown Blue Ghost (Mrs B Prune).

Rushlight's show career. though short, matched that of her daughter, Witch. Only shown in 1959 her wins included best in show Buckingham (Miss E Nicholls), best of breed Horsham (F Curnow), best of breed Hastings (Mrs I Smith) and firm prizes under J Fisher, I Straw son, D T Corbett, W R Tovey, Mrs M R Jones (now Mrs Cooke) and H Essam.

Two other brood bitches are Inadown Merely Mc (brindle) by Ch Bellavista Barry ex Bellavista Fern, and Ghost of Test (white) by Ch Evening Star of Allways ex Test Dream of Allways. The latter will be bred from in due course to Inadown Blue Ghost (blue), litter brother to Ch Inadown Whispering Witch, while Inadown Merely Me already has a litter by him, now four months old, viz. Inadown Merely A Minstrel, I Merely A Maestro, I Merely A Madrigal (all blues) and I Merely A Melody (particolour, dark blue and white). All will be Minstrel out in the New Year; Minstrel will be shown by his new owner Mrs Pruen of Banwell, while Madrigal will be leaving home in December to join Miss Olive Smithson of Burnham-on-Sea who will be showing her.—ANNA CARE

HARQUE AND GRANTITE WHIPPETS

 
Ch HARQUE TO ROSA   Ch HARQUE CONNEIL CROWN JEWEL

T HE year 1964 saw this kennel again well to the fore. The policy is to show the champions and older dogs only lightly or not at all and to bring out good youngsters every season. Of the older ones, Ch Harque Conneil Crown Jewel, a junior warrant winner, gained her title with CCs at Glasgow, Blackpool and Cardiff and became the third champion bitch in the kennel. Ch Harque To Rosa won five lsts in four outings and was reserve best in show at Peterborough open show. The famous old lady, Ch Wingedfoot Tu Whit Tu Whoo, now 10 1/2 years old, went to Blackpool and won the Veteran class.

GRANTITE ALCAZAR

Three puppies were retained, of these, Harque To Gamecock quickly established himself as the star. He gained his junior warrant in four shows before he was 11 months old and won two reserve CCs while still a puppy. He then covered himself with glory by winning the CC and best of breed under Mrs Margaret Wigg at Handsworth Park. Gamecock's litter sister, Gazelle, won consistently at championship and open shows. The third puppy, Harque To Harmony, from Ch Harque To Rosa's first litter by Ch Ladies - field Topaz, has also won well at championship shows. Also from this litter and making a great name for herself in Scotland, is Conneil Harque To Heiress owned by Mrs Connie Crawford and Harque To Huntsman win ­ning for his owner Mrs Nancy Harris.

 
HARQUE TO BEAUMONT   HARQUE TO GAMECOCK

The only black cloud was the tragic loss of Ch Harque Conneil Carry On, due to an accident. A great loss indeed in every way. The kennel is fortunate to have his litter sister, Ch Harque Conneil Crown Jewel who has been mated to Gamecock. Ch Harque to Rosa and her mother Rosaday of Knotknum are also soon to be mated, so 1965 should again see the Harques well up in the chase. Grantite Alcazar, the property of Major M V Argyle, MC, QC, is a most striking black and white two year old who is a consistent winner and sire of winners.

WE AT PENNYWORTH WISH EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY 1964


DRAWING INTEREST: Robert Forsyth, handler, discussing Ch. Courtenay Fleetfoot of Pennyworth yesterday with Willard K. Denton, right, president of Manhattan Savings Bank. Bank is holding its yearly dog exhibition.

WHAT happens to a dog after he wins best in show at America's foremost bench event, the Westminster Kennel Club show in Madison Square Garden. Robert Forsyth of Chappaqua, N. Y., handler for the whippet that turned that impressive trick last week, took time out yesterday to answer the question in the lobby of a Madison Avenue bank, of all, places. It was at the week-long special show the Manhattan Savings Bank is conducting thin week.

Ch. Courtenay Fleetfoot of Pennyworth, the 3-year-old dog belonging to the Pennyworth Kennels of Newington, N. H., was photographed and re-photographed deep into the night after Len Carey, the judge, made the decision. That was on Tuesday. The kennel owners, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Newcombe, and Forsyth were interviewed at the Garden and at their motor inn residence. There were telephone calls and messages of congratulations. One message reached Forsyth when he arrived in the Garden's downstairs benching area an hour after the victory.

Wednesday morning there were calls of a different nature. Whippet owners from all over wanted to breed their dogs to Fleetfoot, more familiarly called Ricky.

"Everybody wants to breed to a Westminster good said. "A good many whippet owners now almost are standing on line for a chance."

The handler was asked how the victory had affected the stud fee. There's been no change, he said. It remains at $150. There aren't so many whippets as dogs in other breeds, such as boxers, he explained, so the demand was less. Fleetfoot probably will be at stud once a week, but certainly no more than three times a week.

Thursday morning there were more photographs and a radio appearance. Then the dog was off to Chappaqua. On Friday he was taken to Connecticut for the shows at Hartford and New Haven over the weekend. Last Monday morning dog and handler were at the Manhattan Savings Bank exhibition, which ends tomorrow. The only plans for the future so far are the Battle Creek, Mich., show on Feb. 29 and that of the Detroit Kennel Club on March 1.

The bank's canine event has been going on one week a year for six years. It's always well staged, includes the best available show dogs and gives lunch-hour crowds a chance to learn something of pure-bred dogs. It's a demonstration rather than a competition and participants and spectators appear to enjoy it thoroughty. Various breeds are brought into a small ring one by one and Mrs. Evelyn Monte of New York, a leading expert, tells something about each.

This year some of the handlers are clad in costumes native to their breeds origins. Others wear the breeds national flags as armbands.

"The more we can make these things graphic so that the public will understand, the better it will be for dogdom," said Willard K. Denton, the bank's president, whose Ardencapie Kennels in Mount Kisco, N. Y., contains whippets, dachshunds, beagles and a few Old English sheepdogs. Mrs. Denton does most of the work of caring for about 60 dogs.

Manhattan conducts a number of similar special events during each year, Including a boat show, an automobile show, an Easter show and a winter show at Christmas time. It's all part of an effort to "humanise" banking. All are part of life and the interests of people and "what's good for people is good for banking," the president said.
