Southern Counties Whippets

A very good entry, well done to those that managed this show and the Scottish club show. It is always a pleasure to judge Whippets as there is quality in depth. This was reflected by my BOB winning the group, BP winning the puppy group, and B Veteran 3rd in Veteran Group – v well done to all of you. I was trying to put up curvy Whippets, of a correct size, with a long low front movement, and was pleased to find many who matched that. Both line ups pleased me v much
