The Fall 2014 issue of Sighthound Review was mailed on October 15. It's another big issue with, once again, unique editorial features worth reading, saving and reading again.
A report from coursing in the Scottish Highlands includes six pages of
fantastic photos by Charles Alexander. There are some amazing shots of a
Whippet who excels in the new AKC sport of dock diving. We have not one
Breeder's Forum but two: the breeders behind both the successful Snow
Hill Whippets in the U.S. and the internationally influential Borscana
Borzois in Sweden provide some thought-provoking answers to our
questions. Denise Flaim writes about Afghan Hounds in Hollywood in the
1930s, Caroline Coile researches Internet pedigree sites, and Patience
Renzulli spends time with "A Very Old Dog"... The report from the World
Show by Patrick Guilfoyle will attract a lot of attention (and there are
lots of great photos!), while Sharon Sakson reports from her visits to
the two top Sighthound shows in Europe. At least a dozen different
judges share their experiences from officiating at big specialty shows,
there are national and parent-club reports for Salukis, Deerhounds,
Whippets and Greyhounds, the Western Sighthound Combined Specialties in
Lompoc, the aptly named "Sightound Spectacular" event in Santa Barbara,
and lots more. (Including what must be the biggest letters section we've
had in years!)
And, of course, there are all the beautiful
ads ... We are pleased that so many of the top Sighthounds in America and
abroad are represented on our pages. Graphic designer Theresa M. Lyons
has really outdone herself this time, which is especially impressive in
view of her family emergency: she spent two weeks at her sister's
hospital bed but somehow managed to catch up, so we're just a few days
behind schedule anyway. Theresa is very grateful for all the kind
messages she has recieved from Sighthound fanciers everywhere.
hope subscribers will enjoy the magazine when it arrives later this
month. Thank you for being a part of the world's leading Sighthound
