We started off in 2014 with one whippet girl named Sobresalto Yo Mammeta E Tu "CHANEL" bred by Annalisa Rovani and Arnaldo Cotugno in Napoli, Italy. We worked hard together and with the help of friends to complete Chanel's Junior Italian Champion and Italian Championship.

In 2016 we moved from our beloved sunny Italy, to rainy Belgium. In that time we acquired a new addition named Winter Song "WINTER" bred by Giovanni Liguori. Since then, we have moved back to the south of Italy and cant wait for sunny days!
WEST CHELAN IS BORN
In 2017 we decided to do our first litter with Chanel.
With all the knowledge and advice I gathered from wonderful whippet people and breeders in Europe and across the world, we chose a fantastic male named Crème Anglaise's Panna Cotta "BONO" who is bred by Jan Willem Akerboom & Kris Akerboom Van Der Schaaf. Our litter of 9 beautiful puppies were born May 31, 2017.
From this litter we kept one bitch: West Chelan Quick Look At Me "POSH"
and one dog: West Chelan Quilted Caviar "BOYFRIEND"

Posh was entered to Crufts in Yearling Bitch Class to Mrs. Zena Thorn Andrews. She was 1st in Yearling Bitch, CC winner (Best Bitch) and Best of Breed by Referee Mr. Frank Kane out of 416 whippets with a total of 488 entries. Later in the large hound group, Posh was placed 2nd by Mr. Frank Kane. Posh is bred by, handled by and owned by us here at West Chelan and is from our very first litter. I am so honored by this experience, and hope we can continue to do the breed proud. Photos by Simone Luca
