"Timber" moving out in the challenge

Crufts 2011 was a very memorable one for us as "Timber" UK,IR & INT Ch. Mossbawnhill Exclusive (Celtic Jun Winner 08) not only won the Open Dog class from a respectable entry of 24 but also went on to take the Dog CC & then BOS under Dagmar Kenis-Pordham (Solstrand). The overall entry of  whippets this year was a huge 515 of which 257 were dogs.

"Tim" winning the OD class

Winning the CC

We would like to extend our thanks to the judge Dagmar Kenis-Pordham "Solstrand" for the wonderful critique that she gave Tim

"Exceptionally well presented to show off his lovely breed type,this brindle & white dog simply spells quality,he is an acceptable size with bone that is just right. Wonderful head & expression,small tightly laid back ears but when asked was so alert & correct in expression. Nice & cleanly muscled over the front with elbows correctly set back,chest shows just the right spring of rib. Beautiful flow over the topline & croup to his strong wide hind-quarters. Free un-exaggerated mover,while at the same time reaching well out in a ground covering action,a proud male & every inch a champion in outlook. Only beaten for Best Of Breed by the sheer beauty of the bitch."
