Whippets come in blue, blue/fawn. The same with white known as parti coloured or blue brindle. There are many good ones out there, although more so of the other colours.
I just find it strange that you'd pick a dog on colour, like you were matching furniture or something.
Perhaps it's just me!
Blue is not rare...it is just rare to see any good specimens of at least SBT's in blue!!!

Blue is just a diluted colour of black...what is special about that?!?
My next dog is either going to be a male brindle Mastiff or an isabella Ddb either sex.
I'm lucky in that brindle mastiffs aren't rare so I will wait until I can get what I'm looking for.
I just like brindle over fawn. I'm not going to lower my standard in health and if that means I wait longer to get the dog I want instead of getting a dog that, while I'll love, isn't really what I was after then I'll wait.
Sadly I dont think I'll ever get my Isabella dogue too rare
I don't find blue dogs particularly attractive.
On the whole colour topic, I think it's fair enough to be able to have a preference towards a certain colour - people want to be able to like the appearance of their dog. I actively sought out a black labrador because I think they're handsome little buggers But I would've been equally happy with a yellow. On that note though, I find chocolate labs to be very physically unattractive dogs and would have held out for a yellow or black. Obviously, that's not a problem in the labrador breed as, a) it's a very common dog - there are plenty of breeders, and b) chocolate's not the most common colour.
I think when you become obsessively rigid in your choice for one colour (particularly when it's a rarer colour, or a rarer breed and you start waiting a very long time for this dog) you need to step back and reevaluate why.
I think its the fact that it has to be blue and nothing else. I worry about a person who is rigid in the colour choice.
By all means have a preference, but all the puppies are beautiful.
Even if I had all blues I think in the back of my mind (for some reason, can't exactly put my finger on it), I wouldn't want to sell a puppy to someone who's first question is "do you have any blue whippet puppies".
People who have gone on the list have all liked the blue and red fawns but having seen the litter are understanding that I haven't made my choice yet, so they've given me their preferences in order. Others have come and the puppy has chosen them and they've forgotten all about their colour choice, others have stood there and not known which to pick.
I personally think blue looks awesome.
