there, Sighthound lover!
you believe winter is already almost here? Our end-of-year issue deadline is
set for November 15th. This promises to be another great issue that will have
normally dignified Sighthound people fighting over it…
a part of the most respected Sighthound publication anywhere, and present your
wins to thousands of fanciers worldwide, including hundreds of AKC judges, in
the world’s most beautiful magazine for the world’s most beautiful dogs. It
cost’s MUCH less than you might think…
usual there will be a LOT to read in this issue:
• Editor-at-Large Denise Flaim is
profiling one of the Sighthound world’s most colorful and experienced
personalities, Cynthia Madigan: her Branwen prefix has been known in Afghan
Hounds, Salukis and Wolfhounds for decades, first in her native USA, then in
Spain and now in the UK.
• Gretchen Bernardi reports from the very
unique, very large — and very unofficial — dog show she puts on in her
own “back yard.”
• An article titled “The Eyes Have It!” by Dan
Sayers will focus on how the Sighthound breed’s eyes differ from each other,
with photos and Dan's own brilliant line drawings.
• There will be another Breeder's Forum with
questions to and answers from a couple of extremely successful Sighthound
• How many Sighthound breeds are there? If you
can believe kennel clubs around the word there are over 40! We have made an
inventory with a list of all of them, with country of origin, affiliation and
• Neil Trilokekar writes about the still mostly
unknown (in the West) Caravan Hound, as well as
some of the other Asiatic Sighthounds from his
native India, with an introduction by David Miller. (Ever heard of the Mudhol
Hound? Poligar? Rajapalayam and Alaknoori?)
• Caroline Coile writes about “Dewclaws —
On or Off?”, Irene Terra reports from the Borzoi Conference in California in
October, and Patience Renzulli has promised another of her wonderful stories
about her Whippet, Mama Pajama.
• There will be reports from major specialty
shows for Afghan Hounds, Basenjis, Borzoi, Pharaoh and Ibizan Hounds, Scottish
Deerhounds, Whippets, and (yes!) Italian Greyhounds, which we at SR feel belong to the Sighthound group.
Several of the country’s most high-profile judges will share their experiences
of judging the specialties.
• We’ll also have news from Sighthounds at the
Europe Winner show with photos of the BOB winners, as well as from other events
both overseas — Australia, Italy, England — and closer by: the Del Valle
specialties and AKC Eukanuba in Florida.
