FEW dogs in this country I feel sure have more luxurious kennelling or better appointed arrangements for their comfort than the Badgewood Whippets and Norwich Terriers. Set on a southern slope of the North Downs in a wooded setting with lawns and space around them on a scale designed to meet the needs of the most energetic Whippet. The kennels are primarily aimed at rearing sound stock to their full potential in the healthiest possible surroundings.

Founded on the American Ch Badgewood Michael of Meander, the strain has quickly adapted to the needs of the English show-ring and in Ch Sewickley has a typical example of the best type of Whippet as bred in this country.

The pictures are the work of a young Irish artist John Jobron and show three of Mr and Mrs Fell's favourites in their home surroundings.

There are several amongst the young stock now in the kennel who look certain to make their mark at the shows next year and continue the high standard of their line. All inquiries receive the personal attention of Mrs Fell. Visitors should snake an appointment please.—Tom HORNER


Champion Marial's Jellybean

He was handled regularly by owner Bernice Strauss and his point total included three majors.

"Bean" is also a pleasant house pet, steady obedience worker and currently recognized as a Grade A race contender, having accumulated Award of Racing Merit points. He symbolizes the versatile type of Whippet we at Marial are striving for.

A Show Dog Special

An interview with Junior Showmen and their parents

These three Ohio youngsters have qualified for Westminster. This picture was especially posed for Show Dog. David Schaaf has been out of competition since early in the year when he reached the age of 17.

Charles Garvin: Impeccable, friendly Charles is at his best when showing a difficult dog. A sign of true talent. John and Betty Garvin (Dalmatians) are his parents. John has watched his son finish two champions and get their C.D. titles with justifiable pride. Betty arranged the pre-show dinner with en­ chanting success.

Christine Dresser: A young lady with verve and personality, Chris is a cool sophisticate in the ring. The senior Dressers, Bill and Pat believe that each member of the family is entitled to a dog of their own choice. So . . . They have Whippets, Bloodhounds and Yorkies. Friendly, popular Pat is an active member of the Western Reserve Kennel Club. Bill has just bought a larger home to accommodate the Dresser daughters and their dogs.

David Schaaf: A quiet, calm boy, David's talent for grooming his dogs is equal to his excellent presentation in the ring. Watch­ ing him, one realizes this must be the start of a great career in the canine world. David's parents are Harold and Kathy Schaaf (Cockers). Harold is Vice President of the Central Ohio Kennel Club and has a tremendous fund of dog knowledge. Petite, fashionable Kathy is a perfect partner for her entertaining husband.

Show Dog's message to the nations Jr. Showmen reads Go-Go-Go! Show Dog and you will grow up together. You will be our subscribers and advertisers of tomorrow. And we will be writing Best in Show stories about YOU!

CH. WINTERFOLD'S BOLD BID

Whippet, owned by Mor-Shor Kennels

"Bold Bid's" outstanding record in 1969 has, without a doubt, secured her the position of Top Winning Whippet for the year. And, through the Third Quarter of the Kennel Review System standings, she stands well among the Top Ten Hounds in the United States. Her spectacular career began in February of 1969 when she made her Specials debut with an All-breed Best in Show; by May she had already acquired a total of five All-breed Bests in Show. Handled exclusively by Bobby B. Barlow for owner Mor-Shor Kennels, R. D. Gardiner, New York 12525.


They're lean, they're racy, they're a delight to own. . . they're Whippets! Some fanciers feel that it takes a real connoisseur of dogs to truly appreciate a Whippet. There is no flowing coat, no apparent flashiness, yet when a top quality Whippet enters the ring, it is immediately recognized for all its fine attributes. In the Hound Group, the Whippet presents the image of speed and grace and when a good one appears on the scene, everyone notices it.

Such have been the Highlight Whippets; their sterling qualities command attention.

All the great records of Highlight have taken place in the span of only ten years! Dr. and Mrs. Clare C. Hodge imported their first Whippet , Ch. Selbrook Highlight, from England in 1960. "Lady" was the top winning Whippet in America in 1962 and No. 8 All Hounds that year. Winner of many Bests in Show and Groups, she is also a great producer. Just four years later, Ch. Greenbrae Barn Dance, also an English import, duplicated "Lady's" record by becoming the top winning Whippet for the year and No. 8 All Hounds. "Barney" is the sire of 23 champions.

When bred, "Lady" and "Barney" produced a total of eight champions, some achieved fine show records in their own right by winning Groups and Specialties. The year 1966 proved to be unique for Highlight Whippets. That year "Barney" and a son and daughter won all three of the regional American Whippet Club Specialties. "Barney" was Best of Breed at Chicago International; Ch. Highlight's Lucky Boy owned by D. Jay Hyman (Ch. Greenbrae Barn Dance ex Ch. Selbrook Highlight) won the Specialty at Santa Barbara, while "Barney's" daughter, Ch. Mor-Shor's Hop-To-It Girl, owned by Dianne T. Moore, won the Specialty at Gaithersburg.

Not only has Mrs. Hodge bred top winning Whippets, she also has a keen eye for dogs and has added several to her kennel that bear other famous kennel names, such as Selbrook, Test, Greenbrea, Wingedfoot, Clare-Mar, and Boughton. All these dogs have become champions under the careful guidance of the Hodges. However, most of their champions carry their own kennel name of Highlight.

Two Highlight- Whippets gaining attention in the ring today are Ch. Highlight's Eidolon and Ch. Highlight Dragnetta who are continuing the great reputation of Highlight. While still being shown in the classes, they won several BOB and Group Placements.

As is so characteristic of famous kennels with great dogs, High­ light keeps its breeding program limited and first class.

Highlight is a name in Whippets today. . . and tomorrow!
