Jonah is one of my two keepers from the Lark litter. I never intended to keep a male from this litter, but the week before the puppies were due to go off to their new homes, my 2nd pick male home fell through. I realized that I really liked this puppy very much, and was very attached to him, and so in the end I decided to just keep him afterall. I jokingly say he was my “impulse purchase.” I was glad none of the other puppy buyers had chosen the name “On A Lark” because it just fit the situation so perfectly it just had to be his.
Jonah is a wonderful, unflappable, outgoing little guy: sweet, affectionate, and biddable. Of all the pups in his litter, he is the one who most resembles his mother, though he blends the best features of both his parents. His joie de vivre and enthusiasm are infectious! He is a rabid frisbee dog and would happily play frisbee all day, each and every day, if only I could keep up my half of the bargain!
I look foward to his accomplishments on the race track, in the field and in the show ring. Mostly I’m so glad that I’m the lucky one who gets to share my life with this wonderful little man.
In the ring…
Jonah made his official debut in the show ring at the tender age of not quite four months at the 2010 CWA Annual match in Aldergrove, BC. He showed his little heart out and was awarded Best Puppy by breeder-judge Karen Lee of Surrey Hill whippets. What a thrill! In his official show debut, at the 2012 Lower Mainland Whippet Association Show n’ Go, he was WD for his first three points towards his Canadian Championship!
On the track…
Jonah made his CWA debut at 15 months of age and from his very first meet has proven to be a clean, focused and very enthusiastic racer who has improved his meet score with every meet. He runs a high grade C/low grade B and runs stronger every time out. In July 2012 he earned his first three ARX points at RFF’s CWA meet in Abbotsford, BC.
In the field…
Jonah is closing on his AKC field championship with 11 points and both majors – both five point major BIFs. He is also well on his way towards his ASFA field championship, with all his placements, including a strong third placement (behind the eventual BOB winner) in his very competitive stake at the 2013 AWC National lure coursing trial in Eugene, OR.
