stopped counting after 5! Selectively shown, all of his points have been earned
with his owner by his side! When you see him, you will know you are looking at

At his first birthday party, Willie entered his first Lure Coursing event.
That day, he won the Breed, the 5-point major, and outran the whippet to
take home the Best in Field! The next day, he nearly did it again, losing the
Best in Field by a narrow margin. His Conformation career reads much the
same. At his first show, he was Winner’s Dog at the specialty--which he
repeated the next day, earning both of his majors. Since then, he has shown
only 2 weekends and earned points both times. But above all the ribbons and
glory, Willie is a true companion to his owner and is the light of her life. Now
that life has settled down, look for Willie to finish those last few points on the
field and in the ring!

have been planted in the wrong location.
