    Well WIGGY, I hope that Violet has had her pups now and I can't wait to hear all about it and see the photos.

    Congratulations to you all on the new arrivals.

    With regard to whippets X IG

    (Blue brindle in sig is my pure whippet and the blue is my Whippet X IG)

    I have one and he is happy and healthy

    He does everything that my KC whippet does with a little more energy and passion.

    So if this litter is as beautiful as the last Stanley Morris litter, that my Benjamin was from, they'll be stunning little pups :wub:

    I so wish I was in the position to have another :( but got to wait a year or so until we do :thumbsup:

    Ben sends lot so licky kisses to his Mum, Dad, Aunties and Sister Helen xxxxxxxx

    When we decided to have our first dog, we went to several rescues before we decided to adopt an ex racing greyhound but we saw an IG in a rescue.

    There is no such thing as perfect :- " :lol: not in human form anyway o:)

    i sit on neither side of this fence, i have been reading this topic, as im iterested in the opinions.

    but it seems to me, (please correct me if im wrong) that the people against this breeding are assuming that wiggy is going to sell these pups for huge amounts of money and isnt conserend for their well fair :b (this is just the impression i get from reading all posts, or maybe you know this and have proof?)

    BUT if the people against dont mean that, and just mean cross breeding in general, then really this is the wrong place to post these oppinions as this original thread was anouncing a litter.

    if the people against do mean cross breeding in general then this paints a bad picture of wiggy and this litter which i think is unfair,

    i really have no side in this arguement as i do not no enough about any sort of breeding to say whats right and wrong, i also dont know the people involed i just think this topic has changed from what was ment to be a happy anouncment of a litter, to a rather heated and angry debate about cross breeding. :(

    i have a question though? if ped dogs are dogs which have came from lines that are registered with the kc and they are from the same breed never crossed yes?

    so then that would make mongols are anything thats not a ped, as it may have been crossed with somthing else way down the line? so why are the people against not bringing this argument up in the non ped section?

    sorry for my ignorence but like i said i no very little about breeding :b

    the other thing i dont understand is that it has been said that the rescue centres are full of mongrals, so does that mean if there were not mongrals and only peds there would be no need for the centres?

    which would mean there would be thousands of familys out there who couldnt have a dog as they wouldnt be able to afford to pay ped prices which i think is quite sad :(

    on the other side, if mum is full whippet and dad is 50/50whippet/ig the pups will be 75%whippet/25% ig so should this post not be in the whippet secition rather than the ig as there is far more whippet in there?
     
  7. imo....after reading alot of these post from folk that own ig, i can understand why people go to...in your words "backstreet breeders" as i find most of you seem to think that ig owners are on a higher plane to the rest of us. :lol: ..you make people feel like they are not as worthy as you to dream of owning an ig :unsure: ....ive read many threads in this ig section and it seems that anyone dare cross to the ig world need shooting, i would never want an ig if this is the attitude that comes with owning one :- " there was a x litter put on the other day and as i remember that person was wished luck with that litter :- " :- " if your face fits :- "

    anyway

    well im still looking forward to seeing pics of your litter wiggy :wub: :wub:

    julie :thumbsup:

    I have deleted a lot of posts from this thread, and some warn levels have been adjusted. Some posts have been deleted because they quote unacceptable posts, and some have been edited.

    This post was started by a member who has decided to breed from her crossbred IG. There are plenty of K9ers who would like to see the puppy pictures.

    Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but not when it attacks another member. Purebred IG breeders may not agree with this, but it doesn't mean it is wrong. It is generally thought by veterinary surgeons that crossbreds are far more healthy than pedigree dogs, so I don't know where people are getting the opinion that this is producing unhealthy dogs.

    As for debasing the breed - these pups are not full IG, so not affecting IGs at all. It is accepted that lurchers are cross breeds, and non ped whippets are cross breeds - why it should be any different for IGs is beyond me.

    Please keep any further posts within board rules.

    OK - SO as these are not IG p[uppies - perhaps a new forum should be put on for IG x.

    i see there are still plenty of posits attacking ig breeders - perhaps these should be removed as well.

    Well I for one would love to have one of Wiggy's pups if cornish's Benjamin is anything to go by. :wub: I apparently have a cross breed whippet, all because he isn't KC reg'd. :- " Both parents however where whippet. Quite possibly some grey crossings in the line as my lad is a large lad. But he is 'typical' whippet traits, o:) except the size, but there is more of him to love!! :wub:

    Good luck Wiggy. Would love to see pics of the pups. I think every one would :thumbsup:

    Really! It shouldn't be ig breeder slating Whip breeder and vice versa, which I don't think in the main it is. True, good & legit breeders who want the best for their pups/Breed should be standing side by side for the good job and all the effort they put into their choosen breed. It is the unscrupilous breeders that we should ALL be fighting against, not each other.

    Come on WIGGY-WOO (my nick name for Ben) :lol: show us your gorgeous Stanley & Violet litter.....

    How many was born and their flavours/colours?

    I'd have another WIGGY pup in a heart beat, if it weren't for us buying another house and having a lot of work to do on the ranshackled building.

    Benjamin is every bit worth the agro from (IG) people when you tell them he has some IG in him

    I am very proud of my boy Benjamin, he is all there, 4 paws, 4 legs, 2 ears, 2 eyes, a tail... which hasn't got a pointy end and there are no horns on his head.... he is 100% doggy!!!!! :lol: :- "

    Can't wait to see the photos WIGGY :huggles: :huggles: :huggles: :huggles: :wub: :wub: :wub: :wub:

    A IG & Whippet cross forum would be fab :thumbsup:

    Have you missed something? These are crossbred IGs - so under IGs as they don't have a forum of their own. Perhaps if they become popular though, we might have to start a forum of their own. Other people seem to be very happy with their Xbred IGs - and I can see the attraction :thumbsup:

    Come on, where's those pics :- " :- " :- " We're waiting :- " :- " :- "
