"Uni" is the dam of Echo, Finny, Sid, Roc, Buster and Izzy. Uni was 9 years old in 2000 and was out showing in the Veteran classes at Specialty Shows. In her prime she had some very nice conformation wins over Specials, including a Group 1st at Scarborough Kennel Club! She has had a Veteran Group 2nd at the Belleville Kennel Club Invitational Match, January 1999, won the Veteran Bitch Class at the Ontario Sighthound Specialty Show, June 1999 (photo above) and as well, has been out racing that year! During 1999 she has completed the necessary legs towards her Veteran Straight Racer title & just about completed her Veteran Oval Racer championship title when we retired her at 10 years of age. Uni died at the age of 14.

WILLIE'S PHOTO ALBUM
speak for themselves...Willie is a phenomenally sound athlete with incredible drive and consistency.
He has an awesome temperament...and is always the consummate gentleman. He
loves children, even though he was never raised with them. He is a trooper
in the Junior Handling ring and never complains. Although Willie will be in semi-retirement from 2001 onward, we look forward
to him having fun during his golden years. Willie was bred to
Ch. Lepus Chien Tang
(Tara), in the Spring of 2004. The litter was whelped June 18th, 2004.
Already we see outstanding
temperaments, health and soundness in this litter. To see a 5

What is a Title?
"Queenie" is a litter sister of both "Willie" & "Kael". She finished her Championship very quickly and had some nice placements at Specialty Shows including 1st in Bred By Exhibitor Class, and RWB, OSA 1995. She is a great little mover and produced a beautiful litter of puppies in 1998, three of whom are pictured below. Their Sire is "CH. VANTAGE LIMITED EDITION" aka "Sugar", twice B.O.S. at Whippet Specialty Shows.

"Kael" met with an untimely accidental death at Christmas time 1997. He had a wonderful show career up until then with many fine wins, including the above photo from the W.C.E.C. Specialty Show, June 22, 1996, under noted British Breeder-Judge, Mr. Nev Newton (Nevedith Whippets), for Winners Dog over 23 males! Kael much preferred to Race and Lure Course, as opposed to Showing, and made that very apparent! He was a litter brother to "Willie", Queenie & Jackson.
