Bred by Kim Saxby.
Sandspring Special Envoy (Karyon Ring of Fire x Sunset Promise).
VC *The Were-Rabbit (WCRCh VC Terraquinn x Guye’s Grenartha).
Alfie achieved his half-coat at the WCRA Championships 2012 and gained his Veteran Crown Title in 2017.
In 2018 he won The Mia Amigo Plate and The VC Stevie ‘O’ Challenge Trophy as the Superstars Veteran League Winner.
Last year at the WCRA 4th Champs, Alf, with Dellen, Billy and Cassie, duly retired from competition and set a record for most littermates still racing and also all four Veteran Crown Champions, only age finally catching up with them – a testament to their well-being, resilience and character.
His great performances were also recognised on the lure coursing field
with the Sporting Whippet Club. In 2017 he was runner up competing for The Laguna Trophy for Veterans and also winning The Veteran League.
Alfie was an integral part of The Discover Dogs team, Crufts, an event you can never practise for and a firm favourite with everyone.
Never sick or sorry, and whilst little in size, he was big in heart.
He has left a fantastic legacy of puppies, being a father and grandfather.
Taken too soon and so suddenly, I miss him dreadfully but share so many happy memories with friends, and will continue to enjoy his off-springs’ achievements in life with enormous pride.
Thank you to everyone for their very kind sentiments.
Alfie, my Whippet, was a cracking good friend.
