Cancellation of August Fun Day 

Due to our August Fun Day planned for Sunday 27 August being on the same day as the Dog Spectacular (to be held at Durack) which will showcase all the different sports that our dogs can compete in - and to which we would like to encourage all members and Whippet fanciers to come along to - the August fun day has been cancelled. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Sunday 3 September - Sighthound Only Lure Coursing Day 

There will be Sighthound Only Lure Coursing at Durack on Sunday 3rd September run by both Qld Sighthound Assn and Whippet Club. Members will be able to let their dogs have puppy runs for $5.00 and have a morning finding out more about Lure Coursing. There will also be a sausage sizzle and drinks and hopefully some merchandise to sell.

WCQ Whippet Rescue
A huge vote of thanks to our outgoing club Rescue Officer ....

Sadly, our totally amazing Rescue Officer Sue Spencer has made the very difficult decision to give up her position with the Whippet club due to other important life commitments.
In the years that Sue has held the position she has worked tirelessly not only to re-home many many rescue Whippets ... but so to in organising our wonderful Fun Days and fundraising efforts towards the rescue work she has carried out on behalf of the club. Her dedication to the welfare of needy Whippets cannot be measured, with the amount of time, effort, dedication, travel and worry that she has put into such a demanding 24/7 task.
Your tireless efforts will be much missed by all Sue - and from the club and heaps of happily re-homed whippies - thank you again!

Sue will continue until the end of December and the details of replacement Rescue Officer
will be updated as soon as such is available.
