Nine Lives Shivani Blue performed two terrific runs in Estonia at CEM 2019 and took 4th place from 59 dogs thus became best German Whippet bitch. It has been Shivani's third start at coursing EMs. We are very proud of our team Maik and Nine Lives Shivani Blue.



Today we received news of another big coursing success of one of our dogs. Nine Lives Xadrian "Nico" has took the first place in Swiss Lostallo!

Many thanks to Esther Eigenmann for splendid photos.



Nine lives is breeding not only beautiful show dogs but also very sporty whippets !

Friederike sent us the results of 2017 of Nine Lives Vanilla Sky, born 18th of May 2015, loved and owned by Friederike und Stephan Völker.

They did not only present her at many shows, they also participated at racings events next day. “Nilly” reached several times the award for the winner of Beauty and performance, in German “S & L”, which means that she succeeded to be the best whippet in the combination of show- and racing results !

I remember pretty well, that when I started to show whippets, it was common practice that whippets were shown on the first day and next day they were entered for a race or a coursing. Until about ten years ago Whippets had to prove that they were able to be not only beautiful but also able to chase. Today this double purpose entering has become very rare and my husband and me are very proud of seeing that some Nine Lives Whippets maintain the tradition of “S & L”.

As our second double purpose whippet – first was Shivani Blue – we now present Vanilla Sky !

Quotation of the proud owners : For the results in racing events we had to be satisfied with 5th or 6th places because the specialized racing whippets were always faster ….but Vanilla loves to race and chase and for us it is really fun to watch her enjoying it !

Nine Lives is very proud of you and we are very happy that you enjoy the versatility and the love of life of your beloved Nilly !

Last Sunday coursing tournament in Gröditz was quite successful for Nine Lives Kennel. Nine Lives Shivani Blue and Nine Lives Xadrian both won golden coursing blankets 2017 in every whippet class. We are very proud of our dogs and congratulating them and their owners!



On 5th of May, at night we had to send my beloved Diva, Eledi Grace Godiva, to the rainbow bridge.....

Diva was born 04.04.2005, and my third Italian Greyhound. When I saw her on the homepage of her breeder, Jelena Jegorova, all puppies were reserved. Few days later I checked her page again and one female was available ! Immediately I sent a mail to Jelena and reserved the puppy. It was really luck that I found my Diva short time after her first reservation was cancelled.

Diva became a wonderful companion, a fine show dog and a great and playful mother. She was my only dog who could grin when I talked to her :-)

She became MultiChampion and vice European Champion and she had two wonderful litters. Unfortunately of her first litter with two puppies only Kiano survived, born 06.07.2011. Kiano is very beautiful and he is living in Switzerland and enjoys a great time with his family, he is also permitted for stud service.

In her second litter, born 03.03.2013, we got Penelope, Pia, Pinocchio and Peter Pan. All four have wonderful homes and Pinocchio is already father of several beautiful puppies. Diva was surrounded by magic datas....born 4.4.2005, a litter on 3.3.2013 and her trip to the rainbow bridge started 5.5.2017.....

My beloved little girl, I am thankful for many great years, I wish you could have stayed longer, I will never forget you and your smiling at me with one missing tooth

It is really hard to believe how fast the Time flies. Our oldies, Frontrunner's Head Held High and Frontrunner's Head Line are now 15 years old. For sure they cannot run in the garden like before, they sleep more and need more time to walk. But they are still fit and like to lay down in the grass and enjoy the sun. Avalonia Jesta Rogue, "Lucas", is in the meantime 13,5 years old, Nine Lives Art Nouveau is 12 and Flash is 10 years. We are proud of our oldies.

5/3/2012 Rest in Peace Dawn Sharp
My good Friend Dawn Sharp surprisingly died. She left her family and many friends who will miss her.
Dawn was very ill, she had problem with her lungs,but she was always optimistic and was never giving up. She was helping some poor dogs in her area, she loved her Whippets and in the end, when she became weaker from her illness, there were only few dogs left but she found new joy in keeping small rabbits.
I have met Dawn in the Forum K9 and we became friends. She let me choose a puppy from her breeding. Dawn told me that he is the very best that she had ever bred, she was sure he would be a great dog, a real star in the show rings. From the very first day when I picked up the puppy, she was very proud of her little boy and that he went to me.

That little boy is Highnote Secret Dazzler,
sire of the J-Litter of Nine Lives and the I-Litter from the Kennel Od Hnevina.

Until now Dan became INT Ch and CH of Germany and Serbia.

Here are some of his show results until now:

Under  judge Janina Staniszewska "Dan" was Best Male in Gelsenkirchen on 10.05.2008

He was BOB in Subotica under  judge Antonin Mudra from Czech Republic

BOB under 
judge Mr.Kupferberg from Israel at CACIB Belgrade on 10.02.2008

At the Speciality Show for Whippets in Konopiste, Czech Republic, under judge Mrs. Kathy Thomas from Great Britain he won CAC

BOB and BIS3 in Osagard, Hungary at the 1. Sighthound Festival on 09.08.2009 under judge Mrs.Szanka

In Chorzow Poland, on 14.09.2008 under Mrs.Editha Newton from GB he was Best Male and BOB

CACIB Belgrade on 08.02.2009 under Mrs. Balogh from Hungary, he was BOB

On 06.06.2009 under Mrs. Daines from Australia at the show in Grossenhain he got V-1,CAC

Best Male on 24.10.2009 under  judge Mr. Henne in Greppin

BOB in Tuettleben on 29.05.2010 under  judge Mrs. Pindera from Poland

BIS  on 24.09.2001 in Wandlitz under judge Mr. Petreski from Croatia

All his Successes in the show rings and as a sire I dedicate to you, Dawn, my friend and my messenger chatting companion, without your friendship and your foresight for his qualities already as a puppy Dan would have never comed to us to become what he is today.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH DAWN. I know that you watch him from your place at the rainbow bridge !
