In my eyes Vanity is the quintessential Whippet; she conveys an impression of beautifully balanced muscular power and strength, combined with great elegance and grace of outline. With that said, she is also my heart dog...my constant companion. I truly adore this beautiful creature and could watch her for hours just being her "b-otchy" self ! Vanity's dad goes breed at 2008 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show!!

Well, I cant say enough about this girl. She has been a true blessing to our family. We are very thankful to Patty (Besitos Xolo) for entrusting Mintsi with us. She has proven herself invaluable as a warning dog, show dog and true companion.
Ian has "taken" over the Mini Moo as his own but she is still a daily presence downstairs (until bed time...lol).
Mintsi has multiple Best in Show Misc winner already and we are looking for to her debut in January when AKC welcomes the breed into the NS Group!
Update: 3/24-27/11 - Mintsi finishes her AKC CH & XCUSA CH undefeated in Edison with two more major wins and also picks up two majors toward her Grand CH!!
Update: 2/26-27/11 -Mintsi picks up both her majors her debut weekend out (fully AKC recognized) as well as winning the Non-Sporting Group on 2/26/11 handled by her co-owner Travis!!! Woot Hoot!!!
