We are delighted to say that "Echo" took out two more CAC's at the weekend plus her first CACIB & a Res Best In Grp under breed Judges Mr Daniel Poltri (Itl) & Mr Michael Leonard (Ire) and Grp Judge Mr Ake Cronander (Swed),this leaves her needing only another one for to gain her Crown!
"Pebble" takes another two BVIS's the first under breed specialist Mrs Rachel Wray-Smith of the UK Perrault Affix & the second under Mr Petru Muntean (Romania)
"Bracken" has officially retired from the Veteran Showrings aged 12yrs after taking Runner Up Best Veteran Of The Year 2014 (All Breeds)
First and foremost,we believe that whippets should be able to perform the function for which they were originally bred, whilst still maintaining breed essence which incorporates that wonderful series of 'S' shaped curves,combined with effortless sound movement & super temperaments...this is what defines a whippet as a whippet.
Mossbawnhill is a small & select show "kennel" (though our dogs all live in our home & are part of our family) of versatile whippets,we are registered with the UK Kennel Club as part of their "Assured Breeder Scheme" & our primary aim is to try and maintain this wonderful breed and to strive to produce quality,sound,healthy dogs who are bred not only for temperament & breed type but also with beauty in mind as well as being able to meet their functional expectations.
We are quite unique within the UK & Ireland as we aim to breed a more American/Continental type of whippet,rather than the usual English type that would be seen & exhibited more often in the UK. Our lines are based on & incorporate some of the top kennels in America,Canada & Europe including Lorricbrook,Chelsea,Bohem,Sportingfields,Starline and Paris (from America & Canada),Airescot,Di Mahana & Woodbrook's kennels (from Europe) and of course our foundation comes from Collooney here in Northern Ireland.
The dogs on the following pages are our family,they live in our home with us & sleep in our bedroom,they may not all be showdogs but they are all loving family members. We hope that you enjoy seeing what Mossbawnhill is all about,thankyou for visiting with us....Ryan & Pamela Hunter.
This site is dedicated to "Bracken" IR & INT Ch.Collooney Mamma Mia (pictured above right by 'At It's Best Photography') our foundation bitch,for without her Mossbawnhill would not exist.
