As others in our breed, I had grown up showing horses and competing
in many different aspects of the sport. I later owned a Doberman
that I trained and showed briefly in obedience. All of this was
put on hold with the arrival of my kids.
Ryan my oldest was born with Cerebral Palsy and is in a wheelchair.
When he was just 7 years old he was accepted into a Service Dog
Program and given a wonderful companion and friend, Paige, a Yellow
Lab. This was a blessing, but also a problem for Aimee, who was
then 4 years old, she couldn't play or work with Paige. Thus, our
first Whippet Hailey. That was 13 years ago. While Hailey was just a pet, she introduced
us into the world of whippets and through that into dog shows.
Hailey was not of AKC show quality, she helped Aimee garner many
awards in 4-H and introduced Aimee to the world of Dog Shows.
Together Aimee and I have been lucky to have a few close friends in
our breed help mentor and share knowledge of pedigrees and ideas.
We are a small hobby kennel, dedicated to our dogs, and breeding
what we feel lured us into this breed, the beautiful curvy type and
soundness in body and mind
