July 14-17, 2016 - Jetstream Whippets (Brooke, Gemini & Charlize) travelled to the American Whippet Club Midwest Specialty weekend in Madison, Ohio and held their own place in the ribbons each day at this highly competitive show. Of note, Brooke was awarded a Reserve Winners placement, and Gemini won "Best of Opposite" in Puppy Sweepstakes. Another Jetstream puppy, "Jetstream's Tapesty Red Mesa" ("Luka", owned and loved by Heather & Grace Larsen of Maryland) was handled by Grace to win the Puppy Sweepstakes as well as Reserve Winners on the Midwest Specialty day. We managed to enjoy some of the local flavour as well, taking in a "dog friendly" winery for a relaxing and fun afternoon with friends (and the dogs!).
May 21, 2016 - At the tender age of nine months old, our "Gemini" wins Best of Breed at the QUEON Sighthound Specialty in Montreal, Quebec, defeating her father Mitchell, and 3 other lovely champions to earn this honour. She was also awarded Best Puppy in Specialty, and came home with a total of five championship points from her first official show weekend! Her win photo can be viewed on her page (or by clicking on her name above).
March 19, 2016 - "Brooke", competing at her first U.S. show, is awarded Best of Winners at the American Whippet Club Eastern Specialty, under breeder-judge Gail Boyd (Ableaim Whippets). A huge 5-point win to start Brooke on the way to her American Championship!
February 6, 2016 - "Brooke" earns her Canadian Championship title in record time. Shown only 4 times since late November, 2015, Brooke was awarded "Best of Winners" at 3 of the 4 shows, and today was also selected as the Best Bred By Exhibitor in Group.

Kimmi needs one single point to complete her American title.
August 30, 2015 - Our little "Promise" was awarded Reserve Winners Female at the Whippet Club of Eastern Canada Specialty (held in conjunction with the National Whippet Club of Canada Specialty, and the Great Lakes Whippet Club Specialty)! The competition was intense this weekend, with stunningly beautiful dogs from across Canada and the U.S. taking part, and our Jetstream Whippets certainly held their own!
June, 2015 - "Pandora" finishes her Canadian Championship in grand style, with two 5-point wins -- a Best of Winners award at Erie Shores Kennel Club under Judge Gary Doerge, and Best of Opposite at the Gazehound Ontario Specialty, under Whippet Specialist Judge, Joan Goldstein. Fast becoming known as one of Canada's major Sighthound weekends, we couldn't be more thrilled that our new Ch. Jetstream Pandamonium earned her title at such a prestigious show, amidst very tough competition!
May, 2015 - Jetstream is celebrating yet another New Champion this month. Our "Maddie" completed her title requirements at the Hochelaga Kennel Club shows in Montreal (the same shows where her dam "Tango" was awarded Best in Show!), by winning Best of Winners and Best of Opposite Sex at three consecutive shows. Shown as a Champion in the final show of the weekend, she earned the Best of Opposite award for the 4th consecutive show! See a photo of our new Champion Jetstream Madeira on her page.
April, 2015 - We have a New Champion here at Jetstream! Our handsome "Visa" is now multi-titled, being New Zealand, Canadian and now AMERICAN Champion Arcon In A Heartbeat! Our gratitude to Lesley Anne Potts and Calley Anne Potts for sharing your home with Visa and guiding him to his American Championship. See Visa's page for his New Champion photo.
October, 2014 - We attended the Metropolitan Atlanta Whippet Association ("MAWA") and American Whippet Club ("AWC") Southern Specialties in Atlanta, Georgia on October 16-19. Promise placed 1st in her sweepstakes class of ten 6-9 month old puppies, and Pandora was awarded "Best of Opposite in Sweepstakes" in a total entry of 30! It was great to see old friends, meet new ones, and see many incredibly beautiful Whippets being shown this weekend!
