Let me tell you about the latest enquiry now.
Wants a bitch puppy, does not intend to de-sex it, has two male whippets at home (apparently de-sexed, yeah - right).
Has no intent on showing, etc, etc just wants to breed. Previously bred Cav's. Was supposedly a vet nurse, worked at the zoo etc etc. Has training qualifications etc.
Can't understand why I said no. Didn't even realise that you can't advertise on Dogz if your not a registered breeder etc etc.
Told her to go to a few rescue/pounds etc & you'll figure out why I said no.
On a brighter note I've had two other good enquiries and my couple of people who have been on my waiting list for this mating.
So you're having a good day then? LOL! Some people need to have their heads examined!
Sorry meant to say SC (senior courser) not LC. Apologies if anyone is confused.
lol I'm confused most of the time, and lucky for me you explained before I asked the question. It's all so interesting but the more I learn the more I know breeding is not for me.
Hmm, will have to do some research of my own.
LC - NFI, SC - even though you say it's "senior courser" - doesn't mean alot. From context, I imagine champion rabbit chaser and killer.
My Aunt, long time owner of whippets and the JRT (Jack Russell Terrier) Breeder at the bottom of the hill (neighbouring farm) had an accident and resulted in a litter of Jack-whippets - who were really good at, um, coursing. I remember comments in the story telling of "what long legs your JRT has" and "they're so fast". Not sure what the breeder put down as the parentage of that litter...
I'm not in the best mood so probably shouldn't answer - but then again even if I was in a great mood my answer would stay the same...
They're dumb. They can't help it. They were not born with enough brain cells, you see, MAC.
What time wasters :/ How frustrating and dissapointing you must get when dealing with people like that.
Yep, basically it means chased the white plastic bag on a cable (in competition) and killed it good and dead.
Placing a rabbit and a whippet together is like placing a working ACD and a herd of cattle together. It is exactly the prey they were bred to chase down. Mine don't chase SWF dogs, they realise they're dogs, but a rabbit or rodent is fair game.
Yes breeding is as frustrating as it is enjoyable which is why I don't do it very often. Only when I want to keep a dog and when I have at least a few orders in.
