At 14.5" and 8 pounds, Chase was an exquisite little guy. My first show dog, I am very proud of his accomplishments in the show ring, novice owner handled. What a thrill! Chase also lived up to his name, in the tradition of his famous coursing mom "Bernie", and loved to chase the bunny. He did his part in helping get IG's sanctioned in racing and lure coursing events. A happier dog I have not met. He could always bring a SMILE to anyone's face.
Chase left us on 11/16/2004, for the clean, fresh air of heaven. We still feel his presence, and he is missed greatly.
Toby was my first Whippet and was truly a dream come true. Extremely athletic, Toby excelled in any activity that let him use his body and brains. The two of us together ventured into the whole "dog fancy". He brought a whole new dimension to my life, that included dogs and all the activities you can participate in with them. I have also gained some life-long friends. It seems hard to believe that I got him almost 14 years ago. Time flies. I am happy to have been able to share my life with Toby for so long. Some of his accomplishments are: finishing his Field Championship with 3 firsts, 2 seconds and a Best of Breed, winning First Runner Up in the Semi-Finals of the Friskies Come & Get it Frisbee Tournament, winning a Best in Match and obtaining his Flyball Dog title in one meet. He was a Grade B Oval Track racer and was a competitive Straight Track racer. Toby has a unique pedigree that directly goes to all the great old racing lines.
When we lost Demis, it left a huge hole in our hearts and lives. Demis was one of those dogs that had way too much personality for one dog to have. His striking good looks combined with his "the world revolves around me" attitude made an impression on everyone he met. We miss him terribly, but not as much as his brother, Nico misses him.
Travis was my second Whippet. Nephew of one of my favorite Whippets of all time, "Dudley". His father, Clipper is also one of my favorites. Travis never met a stranger and was one of those happy dogs who also happened to think the world revolved around him. He as always up for some fun. We are very proud of his CGC and TDI therapy work. Travis had a slow start to his racing career due to the misfortune of breaking a hind leg at 15 weeks old. recovered and was a competitive straight track runner Grade C/B and is a B Grade Oval track runner. He also enjoyed Flyball and Frisbee. He had the most striking eyes I've ever seen on a dog. I'm so happy to have had him in my life for 13 long years. He is dearly missed and never forgotten.
