Whippet Breed Critique






Judge: Pauline Oliver

A day that will go down in showing history thanks to the overnight downfall of snow which inhibited many competitors from travelling to the NEC. Many attempted the journey but found it impossible or far too dangerous. For the few that travelled the day before and those that succeeded on the day thank you. Although I have had higher entries at Open shows I was very grateful to have some top class winners at the end of the day. My BOB today was my BPB when I judged Whippets at Crufts in 2016 and on that day I had momentarily considered giving her the RCC. Today she went perhaps the best I have seen her. It was also a great thrill witnessing her later taking the Hound Group under the world renowned Mrs Renee Sporres-Willes.
My Open bitch class was outstanding almost bringing tears to my eyes with delight and frustration that I had to choose any above the rest and with so many of my favourites attending. Talk about a kid in a candy store!

My concerns whilst judging the whippets were a high percentage of entries with short upper arms, some flat top lines and also a few quite common and untypical heads.

MPD 11(5)

1. Dennis Smiths Nuit D’ete Des Plaines Des Bruyeres At Brynnsimeon (Imp). 8mth quality elegant blue brindle. Balanced and flowing outline. Smooth when running your hands over him. He has a handsome head with dark eye. Long neck. Clean well laid back shoulders. Enough depth in chest at this stage, shapely tuck up and top line. Well muscled hind quarters. Moved soundly with reach and with typical puppy enthusiasm. BP

2. Rogers Wentvalley Romeo. Another blue brindle. Strong looking boy with long lean head. Long in ribcage Pleasing top line. Still needs to drop in brisket and fill in his front. Clean over shoulder but upright in upper arm. Moved ok.

3. Smith & Coulters Cloudside River Dream of Collooney

PD 8 (5)

1. Hewlett & Browning’s Dejare Dutch Coin. 11mth quality coated fawn/white dog. Tall enough and a scopey stature. Well balanced masculine hound head. Super smooth to run your hands over and finest of coats. Well filled in front and good depth and spring of rib with correct angulation front and rear. He is ‘bottom’ high at this stage of growth and his tail is a little gay at the moment but sound and easy mover.

2. Purvis’ Danluke Death By Chocolate. Attractive headed red fawn with dark pigmentation. Totally different style to the first being squarer and not as curvy. Softer outlines very often do develop with maturity. Front was a little loose on the move but quite sound behind and moved out well on the go round.

JD 9 (7)

1. Ellis’ Railfield Rainmaster. I had to do a double take of this 15month old red brindle. A vision was appearing from the past a vision of his sire it turned out. He is so like him but a smaller edition. Quite mature and very all together for his age. Moved well and soundly.

2. Dargue’s Supeta’s Just Call Me Special. Lemon brindle and white particolour with the kindest masculine head. Tall but still immature boy with long neck and legs a typical teenager at the moment. Moved soundly behind but loose in front. Moved out well in profile.

YD 7 (5)

1. Howgate & Hull’s Palmik Whisper Again JW. One smart and elegant young man. Correctly balanced head but if there was anything I would change would be to have it slightly more masculine. Your hands really do flow over him. Good depth and length of brisket with neat tuck up. Well angulated in front and in hindquarters enabling him to stand over a lot of ground. Finishing with low set hocks and long low carried tail. The whole being covered in the finest of coats. Sound daisy cutting mover. RCC

2. Darque’s Supeta’s Just Call Me Special.

GD 9 (8)

1. Wilson’s Hamiltonhill Biffo The Bear. Masculine blue fawn dog who was on his own in this class. Tall enough but had some good features. Long neck and good depth and length of body. Rather upright in front. His winning features were his wonderful happy temperament and low ground covering movement.

PGD 13 (8)

1. Dillon’s Danluke Lady Boy At Runforest JW. Light fawn boy who appeals more whilst on the move than stacked being more relaxed on the go round and seemed to lengthen and drop. He is smooth to go over and in firm condition but I found him rather upright in front and taller than long. Moved soundly and well on the go round winning him the class.

2. Darque’s First Parade. Smart black and white smaller boy of definite whippet type almost from a past era. Appealing head. No exaggerations with a smooth outline topped with a super fine coat.

3. Almawhip To Be A Lover At Brynnsimeon

LD 20 (9)

1. Smith’s Boynachie Crazy Diamond. Brindle boy. Elegant in head and physique. Rather tall on the leg. Smooth and well laid back shoulders. Pleasing top and underline line. Moved easily and soundly.

2. Denise-Smith’s Karadhras Cherubinek At Brynnsimeon. Rather appealing porcelain/cream coloured elegant typey boy. Long neck with good front and slope to pasterns. Shapely throughout and not exaggerated. Sound but did not have the group covering movement of the winner.

3. Ellis’ Railfield Lone Ranger

OD 9 (4)

1. Dillon’s Ch.Kierpark Smooth Criminal At Runforest. White and red particolour. Masculine boy in a neat non exaggerated package. Pleasing expression on his handsome hound head. Long strong neck fitting into his well constructed front with correct fill. Stands well over his front legs followed by a well sprung and deep ribcage and strong and shapely loin. Moved soundly and actively around the ring. DCC

2. Jones’ Ch.Jothryn Bjorne To Love JW. A different style and taller than the winning dog. Scopey with length of neck and body. Good depth and spring of rib. Strong hind quarters and low set hocks. Front movement is a little lose. Really covers the ground in profile movement but I think that he was over extended at times on the move and then became unbalanced.

3. Carraturo’s It.Ch.Esedra Miramare

VD 2 (2)

GCD 4 (3)

1. Samson’s Nevedith Zufor Zayni JW Sh.CM. Pleasing headed and typey blue brindle boy with all the curves and had substance and elegance throughout.

MPB 9 (4)

1. Rogers’ Wentvalley Mabel. Upstanding brindle. Strong and mature for age . Proper hound head with strong under jaw. Long neck into well laid back shoulders. Super length of ribcage. A little weak in loin muscle at the moment. Sweeping hind quarters down to low set hocks. Moved with drive. Up to size.

2. Lloyds Crosscop Hey Girl. I just loved this little brindle girl for type, size and personality but she was not going to comply with her owner so I was unable to assess her completely. I am so looking forward to seeing her again in the future to see if/how she has developed. Good luck!

3. Crosscop Blue Savannah to Wrennalla

PB 12 (8)

1. Courtneys Courtbirch Diamond Dust. A small but oh so quality class. This still immature pale fawn girl is very pleasing to the eye in type, balance, quality size and shape. Beautifully smooth to put your hands over. Moved well in profile and sound. BPB

2. Howgate & Hull’s Palmik Misty Eve JW. Another super young pale fawn bitch very similar to the winner, more mature but not quite so scopey. Moved well but I preferred the shape of top line on one. Expertly handled.

3. Daniel & Rojszyk Nouvelle Generation Des Plaines Des Bruyères

JB 15 (6)

1. Services’ Crosscrop I Love My Life. Another eye catching quality fawn. Elegent and scopey. Feminine and correct head and long neck into well angulated and filled front. Well laid back shoulders flowing into correct shapely top line. Front legs nicely underneath her with good spring of pastern. Well angulated in rear but would not like any more. Moved soundly and with ease.

2. Jones’ Jothryn Golden Glow JW. Smaller and mature black brindle. Extremely shapely having a strong loin and correct tuck up. Shorter in the leg than the winner and not as tidy coming back although covered the ground on the go round.

3. Greene & Plaice Collooney Hells Angels of Brochinbelle JW

YB 12 (8)

1. Wallers’ Crosscop Glittering Prize To Wrennalla. Smooth and eye catching fawn girl possessing a very balanced outline. Correct dimensions of her hound head with dark pigment. Front legs nicely under her. She is not over done in any way but everything flows and she still has more maturing to do. Moved well.

2. Daniiel & Rojszyk Mythic Idunn Des Plaines Des Bruyeres. Strongly made and typey correct sized girl. Curvey outline. Moved out well in profile.

3. Lindleys Cobyco Charming Ways of Jazzellie

GB 12 (6)

1. Hamblings Mossbawnhill You Got The Look From Chaseover. Pretty headed red brindle girl befitting her elegance. Curvacious in body with well filled front. Moved with lightenss and cadence.

2. Smiths Coyachie Call Me Crazy. Brindle/white parti with the required ’s’ shaped torso. Stronger in head than one but still correct. Long neck and well angulated front. Hind quarters not quite so well angulated. Moved with with lightness on the go round.

3. Lancashires Danluke Dark Chocolate Drisham

PGB 14 (13)

1. French’s Summertime Everlasting. Correct size fawn. Feminine throughout. Fine coat. Angulated well in front with legs nicely underneath her. Not so clean over shoulders. Moved actively around the ring.

LB 15 (10)

1. Smiths Coynachie Crazy For Love. Feminine head. Typey and elegant red brindle with well angulated front and rear. Topline shapely which was kept on the move. Deep and tucked up underline. Moved easily and soundly.

2. Mitchells Moving Magic T Anndonmill. Very similar in type to the winner and the same comments apply. She was slightly finer and really excelled in profile movement but not quite so clean in front movement.

3. Finch’s Danluke Lady Foxtrot at Zenobia JW

OB 10 (3)

1. Short’s Ch.Collooney Tartan Tease JW. Black brindle who is fluid in outline and movement. Well headed with long neck. Super front in angulation, fill and depth. Well muscled over the loin and pronounced tuck up. Hind quarters sweeping down to low hocks. Sloping pasterns enabling her that finishing flick of extension to cover the ground. Whilst stacked she covers the ground with even angulations fore and in her hind quarters. In good firm condition and well handled getting the best from her. Tail held correctly. BB, BOB Group1

2. Winkley-Balmers Ch.April Showers At Crosscop. This elegant outstanding quality fawn bitch put up a good show to take the Reserve ticket. Such a close decision and probably the most heartbreaking to have to put one of these two bitches over the other. I really had to nick pick to come to a decision so I don’t want to point out what I thought she lacked or I preferred as they were so miniscule and do not amount to ‘faults’. RCC

3. Short’s Ch.Collooney Whoopee Do Dora JW

VB 3 (0)

1. Peacock’s Linalkin Meadow Lark. 7 yr old Brindle bitch of correct size and with substance. Moved soundly and lightly around the ring.

2. Courtney’s Starlight Betty. Fawn of different style to winner but still possessing quality in head and balance of outline. Not quite the soundness of the first.

3. Wilson’s Demerlay First Kiss For Hamiltonhill
