When Kerry and Paul were about 9 months old I decided that I needed a hobby-I would
show Whippets. A trip was made to Wilmslow Cheshire, and back I came with two lovely
Whippet bitches-GORWYNNE STAR GOLD, and baby Golden Rain. Star Gold was 18 months
old, and a lovely ready to show girl. I had a lot of fun with dear Mandy, but she
was never to produce a litter.
Golden Rain had a lot of success in the ring including a 2nd. At B’Ham Naional puppy
stakes, a huge class. She qualified for Crufts, and that was my first great dog achievement!
Later, she produced two beautiful litters, the first by Ch. Dondelayo Buckaroo, and
the second by Dondelayo Repetition.

Dear Honey (Golden Rain) came to Canada with us in 1980. There were very few Whippets
in Manitoba, so I was persuaded to show her at the ripe old age of 10 and a half.
She loved it and finished her Canadian Title in straight shows.
Honey was my soul-mate, and so I was devastated when she died at just over 12 from
a ruptured disc.
