The new year has begun and things have been busy here at TripleStar Hounds! We have been focusing on Lure Coursing and Whippets Remington (Ch Lishima's All Fired up at TripleStar, SC, CGC ) and GG (BIF Jubilee TripleStar Apogee, SC) are getting close to finishing their Master Courser (MC) titles. GG is also almost done with her hard-earned Field Championship (FC) and we could not be more proud of her! Billy the Ibizan Hound (Ch Ahram's Rebel Yell at TripleStar, JC) Qualified to course (QC) and earned his Junior Courser (JC) title. He has also been picking up Grand Champion (GCH) points when available at conformation shows.
The American Whippet Club National Specialty will be upon us April 23 through May 1st, 2016, held in San Diego, California. We are gearing up for this big event and very excited to attend. I am the catalog advertising show chair and happy to help. I am also on the committee for the American Whippet Club Western Specialty to be held on July 7th at the new location of Cal State Channel Islands in Camarillo. The entire Summerfest shows will be held at this location instead of the Ventura County fairgrounds for 2016. If it goes well, we will see what will happen location wise for the following years.
Our new show prospects are looking wonderful and have just turned 6 months today. Expect to see them hitting the show ring fairly soon! I will be holding some back to be selectively shown and will proudly be presenting them in the Futurity puppy classes at the 2016 AWC National Specialty.
This year holds much promise! We wish all of our wonderful partners and hound owners the best of luck in everything.
