    Hello, I am new to this forum.

    I live in California with my husband, my daughter, 4 Belgian Malinois, and 2 Whippets. We also have horses and 2 pygmy goats :rofl1:

    My husband and I train and compete in IPO. (Used to be Schutzhund before the start of the year)

    The whippets used to race Oval and Straight, but they are both too old and grumpy now.

    I have tons of pictures, here is just a teaser...

    This is 5 year old Mauno-

    And here is 11 month old Frankie (female)-

    And the last Malinois is my husband's young girl. She is a littermate to Frankie, we brought her back from Holland when we were in Europe for the World Championships.

    Here is our oldest Whippets, she is almost 10 and retired from racing. I think this was the 2006 NOTRA Derby and NAWRA Nationals. She was top 10 NOTRA and Top 20 NAWRA, for best Opposite sex combined Score. She is the 2.

    [​IMG]

    Below is Isen at the same event, his FTE. He was 14 months. I think he raced one more time, but bumping became an issue for him because of (oops) the Malinois here at home. They taught him how.

    Sorry, I can no longer post pics to this thread? I will try again, I had pics of the whippets and it said it must be reviewed, and I could not post anything at all. I guess it thought I was spamming the board?

    Above #2 is our Leila. This was at the 2006 NOTRA Debry and NAWRA Nationals. This was NOTRA, she was Top 10. :hail:

    [​IMG]

    Same event, this is Isen. It was his FTE and he was 14 months. He raced one more time, here in So Cal, and was DQ for bumping. Darn Malis taught him to bump and growl. Sigh. No more races for him, too far of a drive just for training with Schutzhund going on also.
