Whippets - week 22Updated : 26/05/2017

SKC HELD its championship show over the penultimate weekend in May with hound day on the Saturday which must have been appreciated by many exhibitors with so many of our days falling during the week this year.      Lynda Matthews was judging the breed and awarding CCs for the first time. Lynda drew an en...

I HAVE received the following from the Sporting Whippet Club, looking at the photos on social media, the field looked really good. Lots of great action shots of the Whippets doing what they love! It makes me very envious. Really pleased to see this club succeeding so well.      Another lovely day at SWC,...

THE WEEKEND of May 13 and 14 was obviously a time for a number of the Whippet fancy to hang up the show leads and instead celebrate and enjoy a social life other than the usual one gathered around a show ring in a field or at a leisure centre! Some lovely photos have been posted on social media of two very happy events that ...

Whippets - week 20Updated : 11/05/2017

IT WAS a busy week for exhibitors with the NWA holding its championship show on the bank holiday Monday followed by hound day at Birmingham National on the Thursday. Held at the Stafford County Showground, it is a popular venue, but it was a busy journey there for many with it being a work day for others.    ...

Whippets - week 19Updated : 05/05/2017

THE FIRST May bank holiday weekend saw hound day at WELKS fall on the Friday. Roger Stock (Courthill) was the breed judge for Whippets and drew 177 dogs making 232 entries with 42 entries absent on the day. Not as big as the spectacular entry last year, making it necessary for two judges to be required to officiate, but cert...

Whippets - week 18Updated : 27/04/2017

WHIPPET exhibitors were out and about over the weekend and once again, kept the flag flying for the breed with a number of good wins at a variety of open shows.      Kay Vernon sent me the results from Leominster where her Laylandy Athena was BP and PG4 under Mr B Blunden.      Molly...

Whippets - week 17Updated : 21/04/2017

THE EAST Anglian WC held its two back-to-back open shows on Easter Saturday at the Littleport Leisure Centre, with both shows drawing almost identical numerical entries, which must have been pleasing for the committee and for the four judges involved.      Louise Tope (Dewerstone) was the dog judge for t...

FROM THE BSFA meeting: We had a lovely meeting on Sunday, which by all accounts was very well attended and the weather was good.      The judges were Laurie Winters and David Crane. This was David’s first time judging and he coped very well and there was a big entry of hounds. Thank you very much t...

Whippets - week 16Updated : 13/04/2017

THE HAS held its championship show at the Royal Highland Centre, Ingliston. I see on the schedule that there was no benching at this show, although entry fees seem not to be affected as £25/£26 was still being charged per dog. Whippets were judged by Felicity Thompson (Barnesmore). This was Felicity’s first...

Whippets - week 15Updated : 06/04/2017

THE WHIPPET CLUB held its championship show which is always well supported, on All Fools’ Day, April 1. It certainly was no hoax and exhibitors were welcomed on arrival at the Sports Connexion.      An entry of 268 exhibits making 321 entries was received, with 169 dogs with 16 entries absent and 1...

HERE ARE the results from the first meeting of the BSFA held at Kingsclere. The next meeting will be on April 16.      Judges were Hannah Bishop and Sue Meecham who both did a great job. This meeting was the first where judges will run their own dogs and the other judge will score. The second score will ...

Whippets - week 14Updated : 30/03/2017

THE WEATHER has certainly gone from two extremes recently, with the Whippets in their coats one day and out sunbathing the next, but at least spring has officially started.      There is always a slight lull after Crufts before the championship shows become more regular features of the weeks. Open shows ...

Whippets - week 13Updated : 23/03/2017

IT MUST be very upsetting for so many in the pedigree dog world to be subjected to the outpouring of vitriolic comments that have been made recently after Crufts, whether concerning individual dogs, breeds or the people connected with them. It does seem to have cast a dampener on the euphoria that followed another great show...

Whippets - week 13Updated : 22/03/2017

I HAVE received the following results. It sounds like a good if windy meeting. Well done to the winners. Here’s hoping the next meeting has better weather.      Results of the first meeting of the Sporting Whippet Club.      “Well I think we can say today was a little bre...

Whippets - week 12Updated : 16/03/2017

AS THE LIGHTS dimmed in the arena after BIS was declared and the whole event of the world’s greatest dog show closed down for the year, once again it had been a superb show for our lovely whippets, with another of the breed’s stunning bitches going BOB and reserve in the hound group.      The...

Whippets - week 11Updated : 08/03/2017

WITH CRUFTS starting in two days time, there has been a heightened sense of excitement (which will have long since dissipated when this is read) generated in social media posts with regards to sourcing last minute things to buy to enhance the Crufts show outfit, to tracking down spare tickets and passes. Visitors are flying ...

Whippets - week 10Updated : 02/03/2017

THE SOUTH Yorkshire Whippet Club held their open show at Staveley. Stephanie Robertson (Sheol) was the judge and drew an entry of 130 making 137 entries with 33 entries absent on the day.      Judging stared early at 9am as the club was also hosting the Whippet of the Year competition once the show judgi...
