*** INSPECTION TIMES -8 am  Saturday and Sunday

Beal Parke Topside Rd Louisville, TN

 

Saturday  Conformation Judge: Janis Flaherty

I have been breeding and showing english setters for over 35 years under the kennel name of Blu’Star. My husband and I were both Chicago Police Officers with the combi- nation of over 58 years of service to the city, hence the name of Blu’Star. We retired to TN in 2010. After being born are raised in Chicago for 60+ years, we moved to “God’s county” as my husband would say.
I only breed one litter every three to four years and I have bred/co-bred over 60 AKC Champion dogs, almost all being owner handled to their titles. They also have obtained numerous other titles: hunting dog, agility, obedience, rally, fast track, etc. and numerous dogs are also therapy dogs. As a breeder, my goal is to make each generation better than the last, and have every dog conform to all aspects of the breed standard.
A breeder needs to be a breed mentor, for it is no secret that the only way for our sport to survive is to be supportive of the “newbies.” We need to be welcoming to them, for no one will continue to show dogs if they feel uncomfortable and intimidated. The easiest way to cure this is by offering support where it is needed, even if it is not a dog that you bred. Simple words of encouragment, a smile, sincere words of encouragement, a con- gratulations, can make all the difference to someone who is just starting out and feels like an outsider in an environment that is increasingly dominated by professionals and us “old timers.”
I love breeding and showing dogs. I want the sport to be in better shape on the day when I’m finally too old to sleep next to the whelping box or run my dogs around the ring hop- ing to win a silly purple ribbon!

 

Sunday Conformation Judge: Dori Yarberry

My name is Dori Yarberry and I have been actively involved in the sport of purebred dogs since 1991. You could say purebred dogs are in my blood because my great grandmother was a breeder of German Shepherds and Border Collies in Scotland. She bred the original Rin Tin Tin. At 10 years old I attended my first AKC dog show and I was hooked. My original breed was Chihuahuas and it was through Chihuahuas that I was introduced to the Whippet (through a friend). I was blown away by their beauty and elegance. I became an instant fan. I currently own HarborMist Border Collies which I established in 2006. We have produced several successful purposefully bred Border Collies under this prefix. I look forward to judging your beautiful Whippets, thank you for this honor
