14 cacs won by 12 different Pendahr dogs in 2017.
Looking back we realise that 2017 has been a fantastic year for our breeding. Despite of moderate showing dogs with the Pendahr prefix have achieved wonderful results:
2 x C.I.B. titles: FI EE LV CH JWW-14 Pendahr Fred Perry and litterbrother N S DK CH NV-14 Pendahr Puttin On The Ritz
5 x new National CH titles in 3 different countries: N CH Pendahr House of Cards, N CH Pendahr Heartbeat, N CH Pendahr Wears Prada, EE CH Pendahr Vanity Fair, LV CH Pendahr Fred Perry

In addition to these five cac winners the following six have won 8 cacs from the show ring: Pendahr Blues Brother, Pendahr Cinema Paradiso, Pendahr Paris, Pendahr Portia, Pendahr Preston (2 x cac Island), Pendahr Parker (2 x cac)
In the LC field Pendahr Shadow In The Palace won cac and CACIL on her very first start.
A huge thank to all our puppy buyers and friends who keep their dogs in top condition and contribute to so much fun and celebrations during the year. You will find most of the highligts listed below.
A tribute to "The one and only" N DK CH NV CH Pendahr P.O.S.H. She is the mother of 6 champions and 4 cac winners from three different litters so far. There are several champions and cac winners among her grandchildren. We just love this little lady! She will make her debut in veteran classes during 2018.

Pendahr Preston BIS junior in Iceland
Change in puppy plans/ Endrede valpeplaner
We have decided that N CH Pendahr Wears Prada not will be mated until 2018. As "Spooky" has not shown any signs of her season and it's soon December, it's now very sure it will be difficult to combine a litter with our trip to USA in April 2018. We have been looking so much forward to the Whippet World Congress and American Whippet Specialty Show over a week in Baltimore, and want to put priority to this very interesting and once in a lifetime event. We really hope these important events will bring us new knowledge as breeders.
Enquiries for the 2018 litter is welcome. Spooky is the sweetest girl with a perfect whippet temper. She is the mother of litter 14.
