Considering a Whippet?


Timbreblue Slams the Door

Whippet breeders are very protective of the breed. Most will ask you to sign an agreement that a puppy sold as a pet will not be bred. This precaution is to safeguard the quality and health of whippets as a whole. In popular breeds where careless or uninformed breeding is common, temperaments and appearances vary so widely that it's hard to believe that some of the dogs are even the same breed! Careless or ill-informed breeding has made many breeds shy, snappy, and unstable. We don't want whippets to go there!

Rini was the first solid blue bred at Timbreblue, so she is extra special to us. She is the daughter of Juliet and Blue from the Gemstone Litter, and lives with Johannah and Derek in South Carolina.

Rini is our matriarch Ivy's great-granddaughter and inherited her amazing intelligence. Rini picked up basic obedience training very quickly, has enjoyed practicing lure coursing, and will soon be making her debut in the show ring soon. She's very well balanced and athletic.

Rini the whippetRini has a great sense of humor and inherited her mother's love of people -- she loves to give hugs and kisses! She also loves to chase tennis balls and frisbees. She sleeps on the pillow next to Jo's head every night and is always by her side, like a little shadow. She understands a good bit of English and can often be found tilting her head from side to side, trying to catch words that she knows -- see the videos below.

Rini's first litter of 10 puppies (with "Sporting Fields Move On" or  Henry) were born Oct 28, 2010 at Timbreblue in South Carolina. The puppies inherited their mother's intelligence and their father's sweet temperament. We kept a black female from the litter, Fiona.

One of Rini's great passions is lure coursing! Here's a photo of Rini chasing the lure, while earning her Junior Courser title!

Rini's main hobbies are cuddling, sleeping, running, and acquiring chewies.

As you can see from the videos below, she takes her hobby of acquiring chewies VERY seriously. =)
