Introducing Karadhras TinkerBell @Mach9 (Laika)


Many of you already know Laika, but I thought it was high time to officially introduce her to everyone now.  After all, I think only just recently is she truely in her adult form.

I am so lucky to have her here at Mach-Speed.  After all, I haven’t been deep into the show aspect of Whippets for very long.  People associate us more with the frisbee/disc, sport and pet aspects more than with pure-bred showing.

When I look back at Laika’s past year (to year and a half), as far as shows are concerned, its been so much more than I ever expected.

Here’s a quick look at the successes:

  • In Laika’s last 6  shows, she has taken Best of Breed or Junior Best of Breed in ALL 6 of them!   …and in all 6 shows she was up against competiton.
  • In her last 2 shows, she took Best of Breed, Best of Group and 3rd Best in Show both times — from a field of approximately 400. (collecting a CAC and a CACIB in the process)
  • In her only show as a puppy, she took Best of Breed Puppy.
  • She completed her Junior Polish Champion title in, if I remember correctly, the minimum number of shows.
  • She accomplished all this with a less than exception handler (me), and she missed quite a few chances at Best of Group and other awards because I didn’t know what was going on.

She is my 50cm tall sweetie (that I sometimes call “Tweetie”) that seems to have something magic.  She seems to use the magic the most when judges are watching…  Not to say that she is the easiest to handle in the ring, cuz she is not.  But she seems to be getting better.

Here are some pics I took of her today in Mui Ne, VietNam.  Click on thumbnails to see them in full-size.

The VKA National and FCI International Dog Shows – SaiGon: Dec 10 and 11, 2011


The whole “MachSpeed Team” went down for the dog shows in Ho Chi Minh City (SaiGon), VietNam last weekend.  We got down there by train from Phan Thiet on Friday night.  That turned out to be a fiasco — The conductor guy said that dogs aren’t allowed on trains.  I think this is very strange, because trains are the perfect form of transport for dogs, a lot of people have dogs in VietNam, and dogs are not allowed on busses.   (So how does one get a dog from point A to point B in VietNam?  My answer, for the return anyway, ended up being hiring a private taxi.  Expensive compared to other forms of transport, but much cheaper than one would expect.)  The taxi on the return came out not much more than twice what I paid to get there by train.  You see, to get there by train,  not only did i have to buy my ticket, I also had to take a taxi from my beach town of Mui Ne to the closest big city (Phan Thiet), and pay for the dog’s spot in the motorbike car, and then take a taxi from the Saigon train station to my hotel.  A private taxi, on the other hand, takes you door to door.  When I traveled by train, I had a few scares… including being told I cannot take the dogs just minutes before the train was to depart.

The three shows in Saigon were:

  • The 3rd Annual VKA National Dog Show (on Saturday)
  • Judge: Mr. David Strachan (Australia Judge; ANKC All-Breeds Judge)
  • BiS1 – Bull Mastiff (Thailand) – “Peacekeeper’s Bacardi Braut” (from dogs-open)
  • BiS2 – Miniature Schnauzer (Malaysia) – “Hubee Rythm of the Air” (from dogs-intermediate)
  • BiS3 – Whippet (Karadhras Tinker Bell @ Mach-9;owner: Glenn Greer-Meyer)(from intermediate-bitches)
  • Best Junior in Show – Rottweiler (VietNam)
  • Res. Best Junior in Show – Siberian Husky (VietNam)
  • The 1st Annual FCI International Dog Show (on Sunday)
  • Judge: Mrs. Jackie Perry (FCI Thailand Judge)
  • BiS1 – Pomeranian (Thailand) – “Dream Team Moon Walker” (from dogs-open)
  • BiS2 – Bull Mastiff (Thailand) – “Peacekeeper’s Bacardi Braut” (from dogs-open)
  • BiS3 – Whippet (Karadhras Tinker Bell @ Mach-9; owner: Glenn Greer-Meyer)(from intermediate-bitches)
  • Best Junior in Show – Pomeranian
  • Res. Best Junior in Show – English Bulldog
  • The 4th Annual Phu Quoc Dog Show
  • Results – (data unknown)

Mach-Speed Results at the Two Shows:


Lajka (Karadhras Tinker Bell at Mach-9)

  • National Show: V1, BOB, BOG, BIS3, CAC
  • International Show: V1, BOB, BOG, BIS3, CACIB
Rocket (Rocket from Pocket Yakuza.Gdy
  • National Show: V1, BOB2, BOG2, reserve CAC
  • International Show: V1, BOB2, BOG2, reserve CACIB
V1 – Judged as “excellent” and 1st place in class
BOB – Best of Breed
BOG – Best of Group (in this case, Group 10 – Sighthounds)
BiS – Best in Show
As you may assume, we are all very happy with the results.  The shows were well organized and there were a lot of nice dogs there from VietNam, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Russia, and maybe from some other countries.  I will find out soon if my hunch is correct — They seem to allow BOG2 to be from the same breed as the BOG winner in VietNam.  (They seem to have placed Rocket ahead of the Afghan in the ring following the BOG comparisons.)  I thought he judges were quite impressive and professional.
There were approximately 350-400 entries in the shows.   Group 10 was made up of Whippets and Afghans.
Results now online:
(I’m not quite sure what to make of Rocket being listed as BOS3 instead of Lajka.  I will investigate. It doesn’t matter to me if I am mistaken or they.  🙂   )

Much of the english translation doesn’t work properly, so i suggest using a web-browser plugin for translation.  Google Chrome has it, for example.  If you don’t have this and don’t want to bother with it, you will see the menu choice of “DogShow” in English at the top.  Or, if you want, you can go straight to the registration-form download section:
