… of Sighthound Review
has been mailed out to subscribers. You can order a single copy of the current

Here's a quick look at
what's in this issue:
• We are proud to
present the big "Sighthound Review Trivia Quiz," compiled by Caroline
Coile: 45 questions, multiple-choice answers and some interesting photos. We
doubt that even the most experienced Sighthound fancier will get ALL the
answers right! Afterward you can see how you scored: if you're a Sighthound
Savant, won a major, took a single point — or if all awards were withheld …
• Gail Burnham
continues her article series about "TRAD" (tremendous reach and
drive) that's received a lot of attention. There are also some opposing views, including
a long letter in the Bark Back section.
• Patience Renzulli is
back with one of her most thoughtful pieces: "A Gentle Nudge … A Little
Wake-Up Call." Do we remember often enough to treasure our Sighthounds
during the short years we have them?
• We have some
stunning photos from the European Coursing Championships. Photographer Marc
Goetstouwers and writer Bettina Fredrix sent a report from the event that was
held in Slovakia and attracted 878 Sighthounds from 23 countries. (ASFA and NOFCA,
we want to hear from you, too — Sighthound Review is happy to devote space to
U.S. field activities as well!)
• A renewed interest
in World Congresses has resulted in several breeds either just having had one
or planning one. SR Editor-at-Large
Denise Flaim reports from the recent Rhodesian Ridgeback congress in Sweden and
informs of other past and upcoming Sighthound events.
• Richard Souza
doesn't mince words in his comments from judging the Afghan Hound Association's
championship show in the U.K. There is a colorful story of Grand Duke Nicholas
Nicholaevitch hunting wolf with Borzoi in Russia before the revolution. Brian
Duggan punctures a couple of old myths about famous American and British
breeders with desert-bred Salukis. A number of successful British Whippet
breeders respond to Sighthound Review's questions.
• The breed-specific
articles are meant to be read by EVERYONE! Trust me, even if your primary
interest lies in another breed, you will learn a lot from the above. That is
also the case with our Breeder's Forum concerning one of the "new"
(to AKC) Sighthound breeds: Jane Moore of the famous Hadranensis Cirnechi
dell'Etna in Italy. She sent some wonderful photos of the little dogs hunting
on Mount Etna!
• There's a report
from the unique "Sighthound Spectacular" competition at Santa Barbara
Kennel Club in California, with photos from this glamorous event. Other show
coverage includes the Western Washington Hound Association and the Western
Sighthound Combined Specialties, whose future is uncertain right now. There's
an update by WSCS President Cathy Chapman and reports from the Irish Wolfhound,
Greyhound, Borzoi and Scottish Deerhound specialties held there. We also have
the Saluki Club of America national specialty coverage, with comments from the
judge and a lot of interesting historical trivia about past shows.
• Our "World in
Review" section this time contains text and photos from the big Sighthound
events in Germany (Donaueschingen), Strömsholm (Sweden) and England: the
Greyhound Club's anniversary show and the Hound Association show with 2,000
• Finally, of course,
as mentioned above, there's the "Bark Back" section with letters from
our readers. Remember, whatever you send to Sighthound Review may end up in
print – unless you specifically ask us not to print your letter, of course.
There's more, but some
articles for the Fall issue had to be saved for the Winter issue. The more ads
we have, the more articles we can print, so we really appreciate all the
beautiful ads. If you are like most Sighthound lovers, when the magazine
arrives you stop everything and spend the next several hours — or days! — just
reveling in all the glorious Sighthounds and interesting articles …
The deadline for the
Winter issue is NOVEMBER 15. Details about advertising are below — regular ad
rates are only $250 for a full-page color ad with all the trimmings
(professional layout, proof approval, complimentary advertiser's issue) and can

As always, we look
forward to hearing from you.

Other magazines charge a lot more for much less, so why
