KISSES FOR HICKORY

Foxclift Hickory Wind
better known as just plain Hickory to her friends,
was named Best In Show
at the 135th. Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show
Tuesday Febuary 15th. at Madison Square Garden.
Hickory is a five year old and the first
Scottish Deerhound to ever win at
Westminster.

It was all hugs and kisses when Hickory was named
"Best In Show"
by renowned judge Paolo Dondina
of Monterchi, Italy.




Angela Lloyd, Hickory's trainer, was brought to tears at the
announcement Tuesday night. She also spoke of the
rich bond she has with the lovable Deerhound.




Hickory's owner and breeder, Cecilia Dove.




This past week was a whirl wind week for the champion
with lots of appearances and events.
For a dog that likes the quiet life,
she has truly handled the fame
with style and grace.


Hickory was even treated to a steak at the famous
Sardi's Restaurant in
New York City.

Now that the excitement is over
Hickory is ready for some, much deserved
rest and relaxation.
She is retiring to her owner's fifty acre farm in
Virginia.
Congratulations Hickory,
and kisses to you!
