“Flyboy” QuiXand Wild Blue Yonder ORC FCh ex. “Pearl” QuiXand Pearl Goodheart
Ned is my “little engine that could” – he gives 110 percent all of the time, and is the poster whippet for over-acheivement. Happy, smart, sweet, and super keen, he has the best overall temperament of all of my whippets – which is saying a lot.
Ned finished his Field Championships in ASFA, AKC, and CKC/CSFA very quickly, placing in every trial he ran in with multiple Bests of Breed and several Bests in Field. He was the #3 whippet and #4 hound in Canadian lure coursing for 2012, running only 4 weekends. His keenness, speed, and agility combine for a runner who is quick and true to the lure.
On the oval track, he uses his great box break and rail technique to make up for his lack of top speed. As a result, he’s earned 12.5 of the 15 points needed for his ORC.
At home, Ned is a wonderfully easy-to-live-with companion – sweet, mellow, and a “Chuckit dog extraordinaire.” He makes it easy for me to keep him in shape. I don’t think he’s ever met a person, dog, or ball he didn’t like!
Below are some pictures of this handsome split-faced boy and a video of one of his races showing his nice break and technique.
