"This bitch screams WHIPPET. She is a lovely size, very feminine, has a
pretty head and eye. She has a shapely body she moves with low reachy
strides and is a powerhouse behind. Her shape is held both standing and
moving... a true picture. I had no hesitation in giving her the Best Bitch
and BOB. It was a delight to watch her go Best in Show."

- Molly Rule-Steele (BREED JUDGE)

"The beautiful whippet bitch was a clear winner, she had wonderful flowing lines,
beautiful type and moved as if she owned the ground she walked on"

- Birgitha Runmarker (BIS JUDGE)
in Scandinavian Sighthounds - the Journal 2006
