Our Foundations....

In 1976, Jim aquired his first whippet, Ch. Denroc's White Witch, aka "Blue", from Breeder Helen "Tuck" Turner of Denroc Reg'd whippets.  Tuck bred many great dogs, but especially a wonderful Best in Show Winner, Ch. Denroc Hell on Wheels FChX, who played a pivotal role in her breeding program.  "Wheels" was the first whippet to obtain a FChX title, #1 whippet in Canada 1981, #7 Hound 1981, and #3 whippet 1982. He was sire and grandsire to more top whippets in Canada.  He is Grand Sire to Blue's litter.

Jim discovered that "you can't have just one" syndrome!  He showed Blue to her Canadian Championship and did some lure coursing and racing with her.  She was bred and in 1982 produced a lovely litter, which included Ch. Lepus the Denroc Talisman TT, Lepus Koira Crystal Ring TT, and Ch. Lepus Denroc Divining Rod, FCh.   On this page are photos of Blue, some of her housemates and some of her offspring.  Her daughter, Ch. Lepus the Denroc Talisman was leased and returned with one of her offspring, Icewind Stag Hound (Stag), who finished his Canadian Field Title and was amongst the CKC Top Ten Lure Coursing whippets for a few years.  Stag is sire to Ch. My Fleetfoot Unicorn of Lepus.  Tali was bred again in 1990, however lost her singleton puppy.  We then brought another Denroc whippet bitch into the fold, who was closely related to Tali and Crys:  Westcroft's LadyJane At Denroc, aka "Eclipse". 

Here are photos of Blue, her housemates, her offspring and some of the great Denroc dogs....
