Dorothy Nickles Awards Toy Group to Italian Greyhound, 1973

1973: Italian Greyhound Ch. Hansell’s Gretal di Regio, with handler Mike Shea, taking the Toy Group at Santa Maria KC under Miss Dorothy Nickles. Gretal was also the winner of an all-breed Best in Show. “She’s blue, beautiful, very classic in appearance, and moves as beautifully as she stands,” wrote Donna Kemper in The Italian Greyhound magazine.

Gretal’s owners were Hansell and Dorothy Coulson, of Ventura, California.
