  1. Definitely not any kind of bull in, he’s 100% pure whippet.
  2. Nightmare... they always jump up in the worst places Glad to hear she’s all healed up now. Mine pulled his nail a couple week ago, couldn’t put his foot down for a week hate feet injury’s
  3. Great memories there they can punch above their weight that’s for sure they will always have a place in my heart, I’ll never forget the memories Iv made with mine
  4. A lot make them out to be ‘working whippets’ really they are just net guarders doing 2-3 ferreting days a year. I’m not in any whippet cliques but I’d have another off the people who bred my whippet in a heartbeat if they bred again and the timing was right, and got a couple mates who work theres hard I’d take a pup off if I needed one. Your bang on that the whippet has been seized by peddlers, £3500 top price Iv seen for ‘working whippet’ pups... I’d never have one again if I had to pay that kind of money.
  5. It’s all about who you know... I’m confident if I wanted another I could get one at a sensible price.
  6. That’s the kind of dog I like to run! It makes you cringe at times and you often expect that slip to be the dogs last... but they run like they mean it and they would die for their quarry. Iv seen mine run off cliff edges on the lamp, he’s ran straight through barbed wire after a rabbit that’s gone through, made the catch and then Iv seen he’s missed ripping his eye out by the skin of his teeth... I don’t like watching dogs that mess about teasing quarry I want them to hit it at 100mph.
  7. He’s a ped whippet. Still got him, he’s 8 year old and 21tts. He’s Still putting plenty to rest I just don’t do as much with him now as iv got my young dog to bring on. But he still sees his fair share of game ... yes dog prices are horrendous, Iv seen whippets from working stock advertised for £3500 I’m not even sure if dog prices will drop much now that people have had a sniff of good money, just gotta hope people you know will do right by you and sell you a dog at a sensible price.
  8. Been a belting season for me to be honest I travelled until the weather on the hills ment I couldn’t (and if I could it’s pointless lamping in it anyways...) plenty bits local kept the freezer topped up blue has shown his true colours and old shellys done his bit to earn his keep. Couldn’t have asked for a better season under the circumstances. Now blues got a little toe injury so he’s resting up and I’ll let them chill out just doing bits of ratting till next season... I can’t wait
  9. I prefer the 3/4 stuff myself, you lose too much speed with half terrier... just something differnt isn’t it, im enjoying it Got the chance to use my whippet over half X for a pup back so jumped at the chance. I get on with the dog so it all worked out great.
  10. I know I’ll never get another the same as him, you can’t re create dogs. But it’s the breeding that’s thrown everything Iv listed. You can’t teach prey drive or magic up thick skin and strong build out of thin air. The only reason I really went for that x was to basicallY build a stronger dog than my whippet with a better coat.
  11. Was a strange litter, some look like pure whippets, one was broken coated, one looks like a saluki whippet most of the dogs were strong types. A few inches difference in height between the biggest dog and smallest bitch. But these are 3/4s... the dogs I seen from the first X litter all looked the same stamp of dog tbh. Rough coated, solid build and round about the same height.
  12. Thanks and Yes done a few ferreting vids with him, a couple lamping and I was there ratting in Scotland
  13. Id like to always have a pure whippet around... so if I lost my whippet I’d get another pure but if I needed another lurcher and I had the chance for another of this breeding I’d 100% go for it. He’s everything I need in a working dog. perfect height, build, speed, nose, drive and thick skin. If I could recreate that dog I’d take it every time.
