I have had whippets or lurchers since I was a child. My mother bred a few litters under the Twiggen affix in the 1970s (including the very good coursing bitch Twiggen Waterwitch, and her equally accomplished brother T Watergate). I am currently owned by three whippets: my old man Diver (Moonlake Walks On Water) and his great-niece Tealeaf (M Mercedes) have recently been joined by Tealeaf's son Trilby (Tit for Tat). I believe strongly that the perfect whippet should not only look good, but should be demonstrably fit for function, and Tealeaf has more than fulfilled that brief. Despite being only lightly shown (it is not her favourite thing) she can hold her own in the ring - but it is in the field that she really comes to life. She has excelled at lure coursing, simulated coursing and racing, and brought me much joy in the process. Diver was no mean performer himself in his younger days, but is now a happily retired couch potato. He and Tealeaf are great soulmates!
