Lilian Barber acquired her first IG in 1966. A photographer and freelance writer, Lilian is a keen observer and has pursued her interest in the breed with a natural curiosity and a deep love and understanding for the IG's idiosyncrasies as well as its affectionate nature, beauty and adaptability. She has bred and finished over 40 champions. She has also served as past-president of the Italian Greyhound Club of America along with other leadership positions, has written articles on a regular basis for "The Italian Greyhound Magazine" and also is a frequent contributor to "Top Notch Toys" and other periodicals. Lilian is a noted authority on this breed and has been invited to travel literally all over the world as a dog show judge. Her own dogs are not merely show dogs...but much loved family members...so Lilian is able to write from the perspective of both the show world and the pet point of view.
