Showsight Presents The Ibizan Hound

VIEWS ON A SIGHTHOUND: IBIZAN HOUNDS

HEIDI CLEVENSTINE I live in Bella Vista, Arkansas, just a ½ mile south of the Missouri border. I am the Accounts Manager for an auto insur- ance agency and I manage the bank accounts for 24 offices in five states. Pretty mundane, but can get interesting and quite stressful. I became interested in purebred dogs when I was six. My mom took me and the family Pug to our first match in 1960 and I was hooked on dog shows from then on. My mom regretted that for the rest of her life. I got really serious about showing in my teens with Collies, but was also introduced to my first Ibizan Hound then (1972). I finally got my first one in 1979 and was involved with the breed through the 80s and early 90s. After taking time off for family, I rejoined the dog world and got my provisional judging license for Collies and Ibizans several years ago, but only sent in for full judging privileges a year or so ago.

I live in Espanola, New Mexico which is located about 25 miles northwest of Santa Fe. I’m a retired Computer Systems Administrator that now works part-time in a couple of jew- elry stores and a fine linens store. In my spare time I write short stories and make jewelry. I got my first purebred dog in 1959 when I was seven years old. However, I didn’t actively start showing until 1973. I was first approved to judge in 1987 at which time I was given Whippets and Afghan Hounds. GARRY NEWTON I currently reside in

of Colorado Springs with our three Samoyeds, two Komondors, Greyhound, Ibizan Hound and Joan’s two horses. I retired last year after 30 years with Chevron as a Geophysi- cist, sometimes doing oil exploration, sometimes research. I got my first dogs, an Ibizan and a Komondor, in 1981. The Ibizan got his Champi- onship and a CDX; the Komondor still holds the

all-breed BIS record for the breed at 7. I’ve had good success breeding both of those breeds since. I’ve been judging since 1992 and am approved for all Hounds, Working and Herd- ing breeds and 16 Sporting breeds. In the 80s and 90s, I had several Ibizan litters and produced a National Specialty and
