I want to announce that we have bred Catori to "Joey", Tru-Luv's Enjoy The Moment SC, ARX, NARX-4, DPCX, PR-8.  We are very excited about this breeding which should produce dual purpose puppies.  The sire, Joey, is owned by Jan Liscombe and Libby Rice.  Joey competed in CWA racing/conformation for the past two years and achieved his ARX, NARX-4, DPCX and PR-8.  He won a total of 8 meets, and was high combined racing and conformation 10 times.  Joey was the only dog in 2012 to be ranked in both conformation and racing, placing 3rd in both.

Jan now hopes to achieve Joey's AKC Dual Championship, and she started lure coursing with Joey in late 2013.  Joey is already major pointed in both coursing and conformation (after being shown only three weekends the past two years.)

If you are interested in a puppy from this breeding, please email me.  I prefer homes where the dogs will be naturally reared, meaning holistic health care and raw feeding.  There is a lot of information on my website about natural rearing, if you would like more details. Inquiries can be sent to me at : awhippetslife@yahoo.com

2013 News

We are excited to announce the plans for our second litter. We are planning on breeding "Catori" MBIF & MBIE FC Tadita Written In The Stars SC, LCM-9 at the end of 2013. We have not decided on a stud dog yet, but will posted as soon as we decide. Please contact us if you are interested in this litter.

2012 News

We are tickled pink!! Catori pulled it off again. This is three years now at number 1. We are so proud of her. This is only the 2nd time a whippet has gotten number 1 three times and it is the first time a bitch has done this. Wow!! Also Nado and Tala are in the top 10 again for three years. Poor Tala would have been much higher this year; if not even in competition with Catori for number 1. Except Tala got hurt July 4th weekend, we did not realize how bad she had hurt her toe till September. She was still running strong and winning best of breeds, even with a blown tendon in her toe. Dr. Radcliff fixed up Tala's toe and she is recovering great. We will be running her again in 2013. We would like to thank all of our friends for their help and support. Also thank Dr Dan Beatty for keeping the girls Chiropracticly in shape.

We are so proud of our girls. 
#1 Catori
#2 Tala
#4 Nado
#19 Carina 
(their momma, who is a Veteran)
To our best knowledge this is only the third time in ASFA that a whippet has went number 1 twice and only the third time that litter mates have went one and two. I don't know what to say, I can not believe all this. This litter has been incredible, we feel so blessed. The five puppies combined have achieve 17 LCM's in just 2 years of coursing. We would like to Thank all our friends, who have supported us and stood by us through all the tough times. Thank you everyone for all your support and help. I would like to give a special Thanks our dear friends at Shannon Down Whippets, Shannon and Krystal Lyons. We would like to thank Shannon for letting us breed to Bosley and for all her help and support. We would also like to thank Krystyl for all her help with our advertising. These folks are the best people to work with and to be friends with. Thanks for everything!!! We would also like to Thank our vet Dr. Daniel Beatty, who has helped us diagnose any injuries and helped us heal up our girls with his wonderful knowledge and his great Chiropractic skills.
