Kemar's started with Whippets in 1990 when we were given Wendy (Hounslow Windsong
O'Draban), who is our foundation dam. Shortly after that, we acquired Blue (Kachina's
Bonnie Blue). Their first litter produced our first bred-by Champion, Bridget
(Ch Kemar's Too Legit To Quit). She in turn, has given us our first Field Champion,
Kemar's Suzette and another breed champion, Fabio (Kemar's Fabulous Fellow).
Over the years, we've acquired a few more dogs, Tiger (Appraxin Burning Bright),
Reba (Riverchase Adagio) and Nyssa (Ch Sporting Fields Gatsby Design). These dogs
have enriched our lives and helped to develop our "line". With the vision of
a Whippet firmly before us, we strive to produce sound, beautiful, well-adjusted
Whippets that are first and foremost great companion animals.
One of our newest additions will not "add" to our lines, but has enriched our
lives in a very big way. Skinny Marie was found on the streets of Indianapolis
early in 2004. She weighed 14 pounds, had chemical burns on various parts of her
body and feet that were literally raw meat. Annie Kelsey took Ria to the veterinary
hospital where she works and between her and Dr. Sue's skills, they literally
brought Ria back from the brink of death. Some very generous folk on an MSN Group
Internet Board called appropriately enough, Whippet World took Skinny Marie under
their collective wings and raised enough money to pay for the care that she received
during the 3 months she was under Dr. Sue's care. In June, Ria came to live with
us weighing in at 17 lbs. She's now up to 20 and with the heart murmur she has,
that's enough. She's happy and healthy. She sleeps in our bed (along with several
others!) and delights us daily with her little ways. She's taken the babies under
her wing and appointed herself their GodMother.
