I was infact born into a Whippet household and was taken to shows when very young, sitting on benches at all breed open shows, next to Standard Dachshunds who barked a lot & frightened me to death!
From around 1974 to 1982 shows took a back seat, as my mother was unable to drive and was not able to get to shows.
Just before Christmas of 1978 a little Red fawn Whippet puppy, Nempnetts Red Kite ~ Zelda, had come to live with us after the loss of Springetts Tracieís Maid ~ Tatty, the Miniature Poodle. Spring of 1981 came and we as children, asked if Zelda could have puppies, this was to our joy & amazement agreed and we visited our long term friends Arnold & Daphne Raines of Tumblers Whippets and used Tumblers Dusky Thorn. Six pups were the result of this mating, a very even litter being 3 pairs of each sex, 2 red fawn partiís with black mask, 2 fawn partiís with blue mask & 2 fawns one with black mask, one with blue mask. The best bitch was sold to a show home being Sylvia Brookes of Silveeze Whippets, this was Iím A Merry Dancer at Silveeze ~ Katie who was Dog World Top Brood bitch 1989. All but one puppy was sold from Zeldaís litter a little fawn parti with blue mask Dusky Maiden ~ Dusky.
Tormor whippets began with my first & foundation whippet Spanish Steps ~ Jilly bought as a present for me August 1986. I had been handling whippets long before that though in Junior Handling, starting at Ďproperí shows in 1983 with Zelda and her daughter Dusky.
So in fact 2013 is my 30th year of 'proper' showing.
