Ejere/Owners: Pauline Oliver, Spyanfly Whippets and Vibeke Abildgaard

NEWS: 12th December 2010 - Rec.CC - judge: Per Iversen, Norway
NEWS: 5th. June 2010 - CC and BOB - judge: Göran Bodegaard, Sweden
Critique:
"Great competition in this class. Winner is an example of the very correct type in a great quality package, just the right size and the kind of proportions and lines that give the quality of beauty that is shared by the sighthound breeds built on S-curves and yet she points out that a whippet is indeed not a miniature greyhound but has its sighthound character in the specific way. Where a miniature greyhound would look overdone and exaggerated as a whippet, she is so correct in details and especially pleasing in the interplay between top and underline, her function and attitude in action is what you really ask for and since it is so breed typical and not a generic Best in Show idea of stretched movements, she is greatly impressive in the breed ring but a little modest in the group competition. She looked lovely in the group though! She could be used as an illustration of breed type in outlines and action (contrasted to more glamorous and 'overdone' whippets)."

1st in her class at Manchester 2010 - judge Graham Hill (see results)
Critique: "Super qualityG/br who has a powerful look but maintains her femininity. Attractive type well shaped head
set on a strong neck of good length. Strong firm body with good depth and spring. Pleasing flowing outline with
desirable rise over the loin. True front with just enough width and obvious forechest. Well developed hindquarters
of ideal width. Moved out with sound confidence. A real contender for my best bitch until the open class."
