Annie's pedigree

Annie has been bred to Divana Arborlea Just Having Fun!  Pups whelped December 1, 2011!  (3 males & 5 Females) - 
This breeding doubles up on Annie's Mother and Father while bringing back into the mix Perry and Jacob!  We are VERY excited!!

Check out our litters page for updates!

We are very excited to announce that Annie whelped 7 pups born May 8, 2010 to DC Snow Hill Obvious Child, MC, FCh, CR, OTR

We are very excited about this breeding . . . dual purpose whippet puppies!!! 
For those that don't know who Fergal is . . . his BEAUTIFUL sister was the first black whippet to win Best of Breed at the
AWC NATIONAL Specialty in Atlanta, GA in 2009!!

Check out our litters page for updates!

I'm sad to report that Annie will not be able to finish her lure coursing career.  She only needed 3 points to become a dual champion. 
In August 2008, Annie injured her leg chasing a squirrel around our live oak tree.  She tripped over a root and came up lame. 
She ripped 3 of her metacarpals from her wrist joint and fractured the top of one of them.  She now has screws and a plate in place to hold her foot together. 
She will enjoy retirement on the farm and hopefully she will be willing to grace us with another beautiful litter of pups sometime in the future.
