Our L litter is born!!

Our 12 little Easter Bunnies are born on Easter Sunday!
7 little girls and 5 little boys in this litter out of "Gabby" Ch. Forgetmenot Gabrielle's Beauty and "Austin" Taraly Cannot Forget Me. All 5 boys are black. Only 2 of the girls are black, the rest are dark black brindle. It will certainly be a busy spring for us!!! :-)

Salem is in the USA

Our beautiful black boy "Salem" Forgetmenot Kurume by Ch. Sportingfield Hot Topic and Ch. Forgetmenot Exquiste is now in the USA to be shown by Shelley Kruger (Fanfare Whippets) to his American championship. Look for him in Midwest shows.

April 6-11 2009: American Whippet Club National Specialty Atlanta, GA

We brought 6 dogs to the show and are very pleased to have made to cut with 3 of our puppies. Forgetmenot Kimono (B) and Forgetmenot Kurume (D) (out of Ch.Sportingfield Hot Topic and Ch.Forgetmenot Exquisite) both made the cut in their 6-9 months puppy class. Joska Forgetmenot Idealist (D) also made the cut in his 9-12 months puppy class (by Ch. Tylko Ty Viking's Pride and Ch. Forgetmenot Famously). Our little old lady Juliette (SBIS Ch. Be The One at Forgetmenot) won her class in the 10-12 years Veteran Speepstake. We were very proud of her and she knew it!!!! We had a great time meeting old and new friends but we are also happy to be home to take care of our 12 new little Easter "bunnies". Below some pictures taken at the show. Thank you to Lucie Paradis, DVM for the accupuncture treatments given to Juliette before she went in the ring and to Jodi Allward for beautiful handling of our dogs!
