Welcome to our home
My goal is the dual purpose whippet.
Form and function are two inseparable elements of the breed. In order
to pursue these goals, I show my dogs in conformation as well as lure coursing
them. In addition, I am also training them in agility and obedience.
Hopefully racing is in their future as well.
My start in whippets began in 1995 when a friend
convinced me that my lurcher Gaia (Greyhound/Doberman mix) needed a companion.
On Memorial day that year, Ampersand's Highland Spring Fling, "Fling," entered
Ampersand's Hieland (Highland) Spring Fling CGC
were never spoken when the first person related the ownership of whippets
to Lays Potato Chips "You can't have just one." One year later Ampersand's
Witch Doctor, "Dante," joined the household.

And it doesn't stop
just there . . .
Hieland Whippets (pronounced Hee-lan')
is a small hobby kennel in upstate New York. Although I have only
been involved in whippets for a short time, they have become a major element
in my life.

And now, introducing the latest additions
to the Hieland household!
(Hmmm, it appears Fling's lucky number is 21)
Here is a counter of the number of lucky souls
