Unica di Mahana

Whippet owners from Belgium, Vincent and Katia De Rave-Vanhauwaert and their beautiful whippets, From the first moment I saw a whippet I fell in love with its beauty, elegance and sweet nature. It took me 2 years before I decided where to buy my first whippet. Twice I had been disappointed when I bought an Italian Greyhound and now I wanted to get an excellent show-dog. So I got Unica di Mahana (see picture above).

In only 4 years time she became International, Dutch, Belgian and Luxemburg Champion and she only needs 1 more CAC to become German Champion as well. I think thatís quite an achievement for a rookie. Two months after I bought Unica I also got Miss Dior du Haras díHelios, she was also a promising show dog but she broke a paw at 12 weeks of age, so she has never shown.

As she has an excellent pedigree I decided to breed from her. Up till now she has had 2 litters, but none of the pups have gone to people who are interested in showing even though they are worth it. Unica has had 1 litter of which we kept a bitch and a dog who are now almost ready to start their show careers. They look promising.

Unica her second litter is planned for October. She has been mated with Silkstone Mystic, who is staying with us for a while. His owner is Miss Janet Doherty from England. While on the continent we will represent him at expoís. If someone is interested in using him as a stud dog, they can contact us at our address:
