  • Ripley Group 2

  • Ripley
    Ripley Profile
  • We are pleased to introduce "Ripley". He is from the Whammer X Tyra litter and is the first Irish marked brindle ever born at Chelsea. I must say we are smitten with him. He just won his first two points. He is off and running under the capable guidance of his owner/handler Cindy Frederick.


  • We are thrilled that "Silas" has begun his show career in grand style! WD at his first show from the 9-12 puppy class. He is Whammer X Tyra owned by cobreeders Chris and Chrissy Downing. We are quite proud of this handsome young man.


  • We wish to extend our congratulations to Jenny McCartney (formally Lorricbrook Whippets which has now changed her kennel name to McCartney Whippets) for the stunning animals she is creating. We are especially proud since her foundation stud dogs were bought from us. She began with a Drake son Am/Can CH Chelsea Gherardeli who is 12 years old now and still siring beautiful litters! The second dog she bought from us is Am/Can Ch Chelsea Coturri at Lorricbrook who is a Jasper son. Please enjoy the photos of these impressive Whippets as they are featured with their exciting wins.

  • In August 2012, the Kilbride and District KC show was very exciting! At the Whippet Club of Eastern Canada Specialty, Hatley (SBIS Ch. Lorricbrook Fascinator) won the breed from the bred by class and Nathan (SBIS Can and Am Ch. Lorricbrook Fascination) went best of opposite. The judge was Nicolas De Bedout Sknar from Colombia.

  • The next day Nathan won the Southern Counties All Hound Specialty with a very large entry of some of the top hounds in Canada. The judge was Juan Carlos Vasconsellos from Paraguay.


  • This is Am/Can Ch Lorricbrook More Than Real. Morgan is a Marcus daughter and will be bred to Gheri when she comes in season. She is an exotic, big moving bitch and I think just right for Gheri. Her co-owner, Shelby Cooper, is very excited about her first whippet litter. Shelby has bred very nice Great Danes for several years now.





  • This is SBIS Can Ch and Am GCh Lorricbrook Celerity (Celine) bred by Jenny McCartney and co-owned with Glen Fletcher and Kevin Hobbs. Lesley Potts helped with some of Celine's big wins! Here she is shown winning the Great Lakes Whippet Specialty in 2011. Celine is presently working on attaining her Grand Championship title in Canada.


  • This is Ch Manorcourt Set Precedent (Preston) co-owned and co-bred by Sandra French and Jenny McCartney. Preston had a successful year as a puppy in his home province of Alberta. He came to Ontario in June 2012 for the Erie Shores Kennel Club Show. He went best of opposite under Espen Engh at the Great Lakes Whippet Club Specialty and the next day, under Bo Bengsten, best puppy in National Specialty!

  • Joey

    We are proud to brag about our Joey, or "Hosephine" as her first mother calls her! Ch Chelsea Smoking Gun is pictured winning Best In Veteran Sweeps at the Northern CA Whippet Association under breeder Linda Bucholz (Swiftsure). Joey is sired by Smoke out of a Drake daughter. Her pedigree is "written" all over her! Joey is owned and loved by Maureen Mybeck.

  • Chalice

    We could not be more pleased with the fashion in which Chalice (AKA CH Chelsea Body Like A Rock Star) completed his title! He won three majors all in a row during the highly competitive Del Valle weekend! He is pictured finishing under breeder-judge Mr. Bo Bengtson at the Northern California Whippet Association.

  • Chalice

    A frisky Chalice was awarded RWD in a major entry under breeder-judge Lori Nelson at his first show. We are quite proud of this young man.

  • Whammer

    Whammer (AKA: CH Countrywind's Wham Bam Thank You Mam) continues his winning ways. This beautiful Jasper son finished from the 9-12 puppy class with a Supported entry BOB and Group 3 to his credit. He was shown in a smattering of shows consistently in contention. Noteworthy puppy wins of mention are many. At his first show he won his large 6-9 at the AWC Western Regional under Breeder-judge Thomas Munch, He has won a BISweeps, Puppy Group 1, Best Puppy in Show and several BOS from the classes over specials. He is now close to his Grand Championship.

  • Bogey

    Whammer's littermates have taken up where he left off in the classes. Kendal (Countrywind's De La Madonna) has 13 points with one major, and yet a third littermate, Bogie, Countrywind's Vapor Trail, pictured above, has 9 singles with a BOB, Group 3 from the classes to date. Congratulations to Catherine Harker on the thrilling success enjoyed by this litter.

  • Whisper

    We are proud to introduce "Whisper", Chelsea Body Language (Ch Euphrades de Sud X CH Taejaan Innocent Eyes). She is co-owned with Barbara Lord of Warwind Borzoi. Watch for her as she competes at the Specialties both in the Midwest and the West coast in 2012.
