Time to put 2017 in our sweet memories, and what a year it was! Wonderful results in many categories but also so nice trips and meetings with our Zaraque's whippet family in shows, lure coursing and all practising. Thank you all for taking such a good care of your whippets.
We had a hard time in last Autumn after our Kiti, Ch Zaraque's High Temptation, injured her shoulder. After big surgery she had to keep her whole front leg in the spatula 2,5 months, and after that had to learn walk again. Kiti's show career is over now but her kids from three litters, and grand-kids are just amazing and we are lucky to see them still going strong in the rings, lure coursing, agility and other activities. And Kiti ended her career on the top, by winning BIS-2 veteran in Kemi international show.

19.2.2017; The new year has started a while ago. We had quite a busy year with two litters, first time in our history. Therefore we had to stay more home and make only a few trips to shows and lure coursing. Hopefully in this year we can spend more time with the activities. We have two very promising litter growing up, nice to see how they will develop and find their own interests.
In 2016 we got two new Finnish champions, Zaraque's Just Light Up My Way and Zaraque's Juliet In Temptation. Z. Irish Coffee and Z. Just Light Up My Way also gained Swedish champion title, and Z. Just Light up My Way also Estonian champion. Our own Z. High Temptation finished Norwish champion title.
The most delighning thing was Z. I'm a Love Machine's lure coursing champion title. Mango was the second Zaraque's whippet who made this achievement complited :)

Some worth of mention results from the 2015;
22.12.2014; We have had very succesfull year, thanks to all owners that have made this possible! Zaraque's whippets have been active in shows, lure coursing, track racing and agility. Also some new hobbies have been tested like "rally obedience" and "dobo", and also beeing in therapy dogs for elderly people. It's so nice to see how multi-useful whippet can be :)
I haven't updated all the results here in homepages because of faster social media like facebook, but I appreciate so much that people are active with their dogs.
We had one new champion this year; Fi Ch Zaraque's Irish Coffee
