I have really enjoyed using this blog as a place to let people tell the world about their wonderful dogs! Here is Cruise another dog who is called a once in a lifetime by owner Pam.

Cruise was born in Stouffville, Ontario and is one of six puppies in a litter of Longhaired Whippets. He was born March 9th, 2004. His registered name is Renaissance Mystic Cruise. Funny how he got his name; Pam wanted a second dog, her husband said "No" but he wanted a boat, so a deal was struck and together they got a boat cruise!

He has earned his Rare Breed Championship and is only 1 point away from getting his Rare Breed Grand Championship with the Rare Breed Club of South Western Ontario. He is a Multiple Best in Specialty winner and only needs two more points to get his LWA (Longhaired Whippet Association) Championship. He also has his TT (Temperament Test), HIC (Herding Instinct Certificate), and his CGN (Canine Good Neighbour).

Cruise also has a few racing titles to his name. He runs tracks in 200 yrd. Straight and 350 yrd. Oval races and enjoys this very much!
Cruise is an intact male and has 8 puppies on the ground. Five are longhaired whippets,and 3 were from an oops with a friends standard poodle!!

Pam and Cruise have been doing agility for 2 years but just started with me this summer. They are hoping to trial next year, and I will be rooting for them!! They are a great team!
