New photos

Had a great time the past few days with my friend Ann visiting. We took the grand tour of Sanford and shopped til we dropped. Also got in a short photo session with Raven. It was too cold to do much but thought I would share the two best photos of my next show hopeful. Last time Raven was shown, she was 2nd in her futurity class at the AWC National.

New Champion

It has been a while since I have posted, things have been crazy and busy but good. On December 4, in Winston-Salem my Koda finished her championship. I just got the photo today. She is CH Sachem Remarque by Sowagla, bred by Paula Miles. Her sire is my Sel. CH Fleetwood Return To Sendr and her dam is CH Sowagla Dynia Galadriel.

Perdita at 4 months

Here are a couple photos I got today of my keeper girl from the Myles x Buffy litter, Perdita. She is just shy of 4 months. Also, since Faith has had the cast on, I have had to restrict her activities. So it made sense to let her play with the puppy, and the have become best friends. They play and play, but very gently. Here are some photos of them playing tug.

News Update

I have been super busy and not posting as much as I want to so here is a post to update readers on the doings (and mishaps) at Sowagla Whippets.

All my pups have gone to their new homes now, the last one delivered at the Southern Specialty in Atlanta. My keeper, Perdita, went along and had a good time, but now misses her sister Mimi. She is getting over it though, as I am giving her lots of attention.

In the show news, Koda got 2 more points on the Tarheel Circuit in Raleigh. Now she just needs 2 additional to complete her championship.

At the Southern Specialty in Atlanta, I show Robbie all 4 days of regular shows and the 2 sweepstakes. He was either 1st or 2nd place despite the fact he wanted to play, I was very proud of him. Merlin got a 4th in Open on one of the two days I showed him.

I also got to show a dog I co-bred, the Arthur son Oberon, Ch Dynia Sowagla Oberon. His owner Paige (who is also now owner of pup Mimi) had foot surgery and wasn't allowed to run yet. I showed him 3 days and at the Supported Entry on Friday, he got BOS to the beautiful Chanel, over some other nice male specials. We are very proud of him too!

Now for the mishap. After I got home, my young bitch Faith broke her right front leg. She was playing in the yard and I really don't know how it happened. Poor baby. It was a clean break so my vet was able to use a cast. I have added a photo of Faith in her cast too.

Puppies all leaving for new homes

Sonya and Heather will be leaving on Monday, Andre on Saturday and Mimi next week, just leaving me with my keeper Perdita. It is always sad to see the pups leave, but happy that they are going to such good homes.

And I get so many lovely photos. Here are a few more of the beautiful Steve Surfman photos from Rehobeth beach. This pup is Milo (was Iago). Hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I do.

Sonya and Heather, Myles x Buffy girls

I have two female puppies still available from the litter of CH Sowagla Quick Silver to Taejann x Shamasan Houndhill In The Buff litter. They are 10 weeks old now, Sonya is red brindle with a black mask and Heather is blue brindle with a blue mask. They are outgoing, happy pups with great personalities. Feel free to contact me at for an application if you think you would like one of these girls to join your family.

Beautiful photos to share

Here are a few of the fabulous photos taken by Steve Surfman of Iago, whose name has now been changed to Milo. It looks like Milo had a wonderful time at Rehobeth Beach with his owners Steve and Lisa.

My keeper pup, Perdita

The decision is finally made and Perdita will be staying here at Sowagla. I look forward to showing this sweet, pretty, blue brindle in the future.

The Myles/Buffy Pups at 7 weeks

Here is the gang waiting in a temporary pen to have their individual photos done. Isn't this just the cutest bunch??

Whippet girls at 7 weeks

I have a stacked, side shot of each of the pups along with a head shot. The only one there is not a head shot included is the red girl, Nina. But there is a very cute one of her in the candid shots that shows her pretty face.
So thanks to Steve Surfman for all the lovely photos.

More 7 week photos, the other two boys

Updated photos from 7 weeks

Had a lovely visit from Steve Surfman and his wife Lisa. If you don't know he is an awesome photographer and does a lot of dog shows and events. Here are some really cute candids of the pups.

We also did stacked photos and got lovely head shots too. Some of the pups were really co-operative and some were not when it came to stacking them. Lisa was jumping up and down squeaking a stuffed frog to get their attention and I was trying to bait them with Vienna sausages. All this fuss was met with limited sucess and in too much sucess when they tried too hard to get the sausages.
Each of the brindle boys have a different color collar on.

Anyway, here they are. Enjoy.
