ETHAN:  "Demerlay River Rapids at Brockfield"   (08.01.11)

       (Demerlay Ritzy Romeo x Demerlay Eternal Love)

Went to pick up our puppy Harry from Mollies when I saw little Ethan it was love at first sight and I just couldnt get him out of my head. So I rang Molly who was going to keep him and pursuaded her to let us have him as a friend for our new boy. Thankfully she said yes and he is just adorable. He qualified for Crufts 2012 at his first show winning MPD at  EAWC Champ Show. At NCWC open show he went Best Puppy in Show.

  pleased with the amount of placings he has had considering

                                                                  Below quote from Phena's owner


Phena  qualified as a racing whippet at West Somerset Pedigree Racing Club last year but we now take her lure coursing as it suits her better. She loves the longer course .

We took her to the BSFA (British Sighthound Field Association ) at Newbury for the first time in May and she came 3rd  in her class with a good score.

The dogs run in pairs but are scored individually on stamina, agility, enthusiasm, endurance and following the lure. On Sunday July 19 she competed for the 3rd time and was first in her class (BIC).There are 4 classes altogether and Phena’s score put her 4th out of 44 whippets. We are so proud of her as she is competing with dogs who are bred from lure coursing lines.

At then end of the 2014/15 season (her first year lure coursing) despite only competing in

 only 5 out of 8 courses Phena finished joint 13th out of 102 hounds. Absolutely thrilled.
