(Ch. Marelsa's Stormy Weather X Ch. Marelsa's Tiger Lily)

"Merlin" is a tough little guy...plagued with unrelated problems in 1997, he still managed to pull off a #9 Whippet in CARA Straight Races. We did not campaign him much in 1998, but he made #10 Whippet in CARA Straights. 1999 was HIS year and  he obtained both his SRM & ORM racing titles!  Merlin is also an excellent Lure Courser, always placing in the ribbons. He is a very driven dog and puts lots of heart into all of his efforts! He is sire to Echo, Sid, Roc and Finny. Merlin is currently well pointed towards his Canadian Championship (conformation) and has won WD/BW 2 years running at the G.C.C. Field Trial Conformation Show (including placing 2nd in the Field Trial portion. He is pictured here at that Trial, and to the far right, a standing photo. * FLASH *  Merlin finished his Canadian Championship in true form at the W.C.E.C. Specialty Show at Belleville, Ontario on Saturday October 23rd, 1999 with Winners Dog/Best of Opposite Sex over the Specials!!  We wish to thank Judge Mr. W. Deganhardt for his appreciation of our SPECIAL boy!  We also want to thank Candice T. who handled him in the breed ring for that Best of Opposite WIN!  THANKS CANDICE!  See photo below!  In 2001 Merlin finished his Straight Racing Champion title as well as his Veteran Straight Racer title.  We are VERY proud of this boy.
