The PUPPIES have arrived, born July 29-30th!

Brooks is a handsome, accomplished, and proven sire who never meets a stranger, human or canine. He is very happy, friendly, and generally laid-back, unless there’s a lure moving – then he’s all keen excitement! We are thrilled to have the honor of adding Brooks pups to our Longrun family, and grateful to owners Sabine Salo of Rantina Whippets, and Jan Swayze Curry and Grahm Miller of Longlesson Kennels. Brooks is OFA cardiac normal; his eyes test free of heritable diseases and are normal apart from scaring due to an injury.

Mercy is our resident princess – just ask her! This elegant, split-faced beauty is not just another pretty face: she has plenty of personality and is also very keen on the lure, although she hasn’t had many opportunities due to concentrating on preparation for dog shows. She had a very bad experience at a show early on, and absolutely hated them for a long time, but with gentle encouragement, careful attention to where we took her, and much TLC, she has come out of that and done some nice winning. Mercy finished her UKC championship with nice Group placements, and needs only one major to finish her AKC Championship. She has had some memorable successes, including a placement at an AWC National Specialty and a Bred By Exhibitor Best In Show at a huge all-breed show!  Many thanks to our dear friends Mary Magee (SaeSi), and Jarnell Carter and Gary Wimberly (Xzotika) for your indispensable help with bringing out the best in our little diva! Mercy is BAER (hearing), OFA Eyes, and OFA Cardiac (echo) normal.

*Mercy earned her AKC bench Championship with a major win after her maternity break, and her 6-month-old daughter, Longrun’s Wonder Woman, was Reserve Winners to her!
