CRUFTS. Whippet females
This must rank as one of the very best breed appointments anyone can have, many thanks to Crufts Committee for inviting me and the exhibitors who entered. My ring stewards were the very best and ensured the ring ran smoothly with no wasted time. The standard was really high and I needed to shortlst in almost every class, bringing forward Whippets that I really liked. The breed is fortunate in that it is so international and there are good Whippets in so many countries and breeders use each others’ dogs. It is a sad fact that in an entry of this size the majority will go home cardless – but that doesn’t mean they are not very good dogs. This is a very competitive breed and some of those without a place are easily of CC quality. I was looking for quality, feminine Whippets who could move out with a long easy stride, feet hardly off the floor and holding their outlines, happily I found a lot of them. Coat presentation was excellent, but a few had dirty teeth, some carried a bit too much weight and others could have been in better muscle.
1st Place 13804 - Whipsperrin Glitzy Mitzy (Mr C & Mrs S Sharkey)
Quality bitch, liked her outline and proportions. She now needs to muscle up, which could tighten her out and back movement. Fem head. Well set eyes of a lovely shape. Neat ears. Lengthy neck. Well laid shoulder. Would prefer just a little more fill in front. Curvy topline. Moderate rear
