We had a great time at the International kennel club of Chicago (IKC) ‘s “Meet the breeds” event held on February 24, 2013. Nancy F., Joe H., and Elena brought Bartlett , Fence, and Foil and met over 100 people.Many of the people either owned a whippet in the past, were curious about what a whippet was, or were convinced that a mixed breed they owned in the past contained whippet in the mix.
We met a few people who were considering purchasing a whippet or finding one through the whippet rescue and placement (WRAP).
Nancy and I passed out the Windy City Whippet newsletter and discussed upcoming race practices and race meets. There was some interest in holding practices closer to Chicago.
