#1 Nacho has two of his kids, Marco & Kelp listed in the Top Ten Nationally in NOTRA for 2010. We are so proud of their accomplishments that took a lot of winning, in a group of whippets that are tremendously fast. We have stayed true to our breeding practice, and will continue to do so.
#2 On December 29th our Solar delivered to us two big strong healthy boys sired by Canada’s top Whippet Racer, Ringdove Chieftian. It was not without some loss of the two girls we so had our hearts set on, but it was not to be. One boy was black as licorice we call Shadow Run Black Hawk, and the other snow white with black patches on his head and rear, will be determined by his new owner. Names are in honor of the sire, Chief. Mother and babies are doing well, and we expect to have them on the track racing by this time next year.
#3 The Performance Whippet Journal will be back in print in 2011, and we have been asked by Jackie Nivison to do an article on our oval and new straight track for their April issue. We have been honored and will subscribe to this really nice magazine that Jackie chose to put on hold and care for her ailing husband. So for you coursing and
racing folks make sure you subscribe to this really colorful magazine.
#4 We received in the mail a gift from Carol Howley, the Bo Bengston “The Whippet” 3rd edition. She sent this to us as a gift since Shadow Run Whippets had a tiny little honorable mention in the great big book. I showed our Blocker and Solar at a specialty that Mr. Bengston judged and he restored my faith in the judging world by being so kind. This gift at Christmas time meant a lot to me.
Glen and I want to wish all a Happy New Year.
