The Whippet won

i don't know if you are familar with Crufts the dog show over here in the UK. I am so chuffed that the Whippet won out of 21,000 dogs. They have so many dogs which I call unnatural, ones which cant see through the hair over their eyes, ones that have so many wrinkles over their face so they cant see properly, ones whos male parts swing on the floor when they walk, ones that dont go for proper walks incase they get mudddy and even dogs who cant give birth naturally but I was so pleased to see the Whippet and a Labrador going for best in show. Dont get me wrong I'm not a showing fan but its so good to see 'normal' dogs in the final show ring and the Whippet sleeps in bed with its owner. Ooh I'm buzzing now.

There was a feller down here that crossed a Whippet and a Pitbull. Called it a Whuppit....

We watched the AKC show here a few weeks ago, the first one I have ever paid any attention to. I was surprised at myself. We watched the whole thing and found it really interesting.
BTW The next little town from here has the Wippet as a school mascot, The Prattsville Whippets. The little cafe across the street from the school is even called the The Whippet Inn. You would be surprised to find how many folks don't know that a Whippet is a dog breed. Good to hear from you over there,keep us up to date on the events on that side of the ocean.

Teresa, our dog is a mutt. I think she is at least half Cateland Sheep Dog. She's one of those that has hair flopping down over her eyes. She weighs about 60 pounds and she shed like crazy. But, I wouldn't trade her for anything. For, she was so sad when I was in the hospital, she didn't know what to do with herself. She'd walk the floor and pace back and forth looking for me to return. And, when I did return, she was the happiest creature alive. So, I suppose she falls into the catagory of "Normal" dog, even with the eye covering. Now, what I'd like to see happen is a show for dogs with intellegence as apposed to conformation. BTW, I wouldn't own a dog with a better pedigree than my own.......gfp

I'd get real excited about this if it weren't for my protecting my personal fleas any degenerate genes sneaking into my pure breads.
