CDN CH./ UCH. Rhamah Lepus Hey Mikey, RChS, RChO, RChX
(He LIKES it!)
Mikey was born July 13th, 2005, and this boy is 14" tall as of March 20th, 2006, and has lots of prey drive. He is soundly built, and has a lovely personality and lots of athletic ability. Thank you once again Mary Marlowe (Rhamah Italian Greyhounds) for this super little guy!
Mikey has done well and finished his Canadian Championship in fine style since he started being shown in April 2006. He took BOB two days for 2 points at Guelph Kennel Club, then at Bobcaygeon Kennel Club on June 27th 2006, he went WD for 2 points and July 1st was BOB for another point. At the National Specialty Weekend, he was RWD at both Limestone K.C. shows. His next show was SD&G Dog Association in Long Sault. What a fabulous weekend he had. On Friday Aug 25th, he went BW-BOS for 2 points and did the same on Saturday Aug 26th. Then on Monday Aug 28th, he went BOB and Group 3rd for a big 5 point finish under American Judge Bettie Krause! Mikey will be out as a Special here and there, but his main focus will be racing and lure coursing for the balance of the year and most of 2007. We are VERY proud of him. He is an absolute joy to live with.
Mikey has had one heck of a great 2007 in the field! He is the top Italian Greyhound in CARA racing: #1 CARA straight AND oval racing Italian Greyhound, was Best of Opposite Sex at the ORA Iron Dog 2007, attended the Italian Greyhound Club of America Specialty Week, attaining 9th Place in the LGRA Race meet which had a record entry of Italian Greyhounds, then WON BEST OF BREED at the ASFA Italian Greyhound Specialty Field Trial, attained his AKC J.C. test, and then later that week won FIRST place in the American Bred male class! He's had a GREAT 2007 and we hope to get down to many more ASFA trials in 2008!
Unfortunately we have been unable to attend any ASFA trials for Mikey in 2008. However, he attended the ORA Iron Dog 2008 and once again in a field of multiple breed entries, won Best Of Opposite Sex again! Mikey will be attending the IGCA ASFA & AKC Field Trials in New York State in September 2008. We hope he will have fun and do well at those trials.
Here is a photo from the 2008 ORA Iron Dog:
Mikey was #1 Italian Greyhound in BOTH Straight Racing and Oval Racing for 2008. He also was #2 Place OVERALL COMBINED ALL BREED CARA Racing Sighthound for 2008!!!

You ROCK Mikey!
