Working Man's Racehorse

Northern 'lads' and their Whippets, Initially a commission for SIZE? the shoe retailer.

 

Easington Boys

Danny and the lads are from Easington, 12 miles North of Whitby on the North Yorkshire Coast. For them Whippets have always been part of their lives, Danny has 4 dogs and breeds them from his home. 20 minutes before I arrived to shoot him, one of the bitches had given birth to puppies in the living room. They all walk there dogs together and use them to hunt? do you race them?

Danny, 24

I was brought up around running dogs, I've owned whippets for 5 years now but have been brought up owning lurchers, im drawn to the breed because of there power to size ratio, small dogs with a big heart. I'm more into the hunting side of things but have done bits of racing in the past. My dogs are also family pets, loved members of my family, they are not just tools that are used for killing.

I got my first whippet when i was 17, since then i have bread over 100 dogs. They have become an integral part of the family and I have made a lot of sacrifices for them, I have kennels in my back garden and spend a lot of time training and taking care of them all. They are faithful, hardworking dogs.

I've had and been around dogs all my life, first one was a Jack Russel, just used for ratting. Second was a cocker spaniel used for beating (flushing game birds). Danny encouraged me to get a running dog and I ended up with missy (lurcher) more hunting than out else. I've now got a Jack Russel, a lurcher and a whippet.
