Ch. Noholme Pepper Mill - Cricket

Male

RIP Cricket

Most Kennels have a bitch as their foundation but in our case Cricket was the beginning of Taejaan. He come to me as a gift from his breeders Brian and Sandy Wilson when he was 12 weeks old. At the time I didn't quite realise what a dramatic impact that he would have on the breed in this country.

He was not a fluke, his pedigree was very impressive. His Sire was bred by the very famous kennels of Martinique, who had bred some of the nations top winners of the past.

Pedigree for Ch. Noholme Pepper Mill - Cricket

Whippet

His Dam also carried Martinique quite extensively. His pedigree carried the names of the two top sires in the history of the bred in Australia, namely Eng Ch. Dondelayo Statue and Ch. Lowglen Oakbark Mastermind who, between them sired 73 champions. Many of these are also BIS and SPEC BIS Champions.

His genetic makeup has given him the capability to produce the correct type and quality.

Cricket didn't set the world aflame in the showring, although he did gain his title with 3x GP Firsts and many inshow awards. He was Op sex in show at NSW Whippet SPEC under Mrs. Marsdon UK and rarely out of the ribbons at SPEC and Royal Shows. However it will be as a producer that Pepper Mill will be so well remembered as he unfortunately wasn't photogenic and was by far a better dog than any camera could record.

Every Australian Whippet in my kennel carries Pepper Mill's blood. We look forward to some day breeding back the semen we have stored when the time is right.

To date he has sired 30 something champions:
