Our next issue will be the always eagerly awaited Annual Top Ten issue ... that's right, the issue with all the FREE ADS! Yes, you heard me right, FREE ADS for all the whippets lucky enough to land a spot in the racing, high combined, and conformation Top Tens, and FREE PHOTOS of all the honorable mention dogs (#11-20) in each set of standings! And if your dog was both fast and beautiful enough to finish in multiple sets of standings, then they are entitled to a free ad and/or photo for each accomplishment, or you can combine into one ad if that is easier! You're only limited by your creativity and your ability to meet the deadline, so if you've got a contender, get that deadline on your calendars now and start planning your ads. The only requirement for the ads is that they must reference somewhere the appropriate Top Ten and placement, e.g. High Combined #1. The Honorable Mention photos can be any photo — stacked, running or candid — of your choice.
There is still one last meet left on the calendar, so the final standings are not yet available. But keep an eye on the 2017 Top Tens for updates, and I'll be contacting the lucky owners in person as soon as the year-end standings are finalized. I hope that everyone whose dogs earned top honors in 2017 will participate in this important historic issue. Please don't make me beg (or at least not repeatedly)! I would like to be able to get this issue out before the end of January, but I can only do it with your help and cooperation in meeting the deadline.
Of course, regular advertising is always welcome at the
regular rate of $15 for a full page.
The deadline for ads and other submissions will be January 15, 2018.
Current and past issues of Line and Lure appear below. Earlier issues will be added as time and space permit.
