Supeta was established in the early 1980’s and the affix is owned by myself -
Sue, and my husband Pete Mycroft and in more recent years our daughter
Fiona who has joined the affix for the Whippets.
From a young age Pete has always had Whippets which as a teenager he raced.
I decided to buy Pete a Whippet when Fiona was a baby as he had always loved
them (we clearly caught the Whippet bug too). Since buying Pete 'Tulu' we have
always had a Whippet in the house and it wouldn't be the same without them.
Fiona has always shown the Whippets, she started at the tender age of 6, showing
in both the handling and the breed at local open shows and we made the trips to
the champ shows where possible. Now we are at almost all the Champ shows
throughout the year and we are having great success with our 'children' now having
bred/owned 9 Whippet Champions in the UK and overseas and currently have some exciting youngsters in the ring!
We have been very blessed to have some great success with our Whippets in the show ring. Our first CC win with a Whippet was with Shelley 'Supeta's Caught'cha Wishin' who was handled by Pete. Shelley was a beautiful bitch and was everything we had bred for in a Whippet. She finished her show career with 1CC and 2 RCC's. Shelley's daughter Maddie 'Supeta's Loverlee' who was owned by Fiona then came on to the scene. Maddie did well in the show ring as a youngster but soon retired to have a litter. Maddie was mated to 'Aus Ch & Ch Nevedith Kfa Kraka JW' which produced us our first Whippet champion Peppa 'Ch Supeta's Bootilicious Babe ShCM' who had a VERY successful show career, winning WHIPPET PUPPY OF THE YEAR 2007, GROUP 2 AT EAST OF ENGLAND 2009, RBCC FROM VETERAN AT CRUFTS 2014 and retired with 7 CC's and multiple RCC's. Peppa was shown by Fiona who piloted her to all of her main awards. Peppa wasn't campaigned much throughout 2010 due to having a litter (the 'licious' litter) but took a CC just 7 weeks after the birth of this litter! This litter proved to be very successful - Bernard 'Ch Supeta's Razzalicious JW' took 3 CC's & 7 RCC's, Effy 'Ch Supeta's Dazzalicious JW' took 4 CC's & 2 RCC's & Ziggy 'Multi & Int Ch Supeta's Ziggylicious' who took took his International title in Europe at a young age!
Peppa's 2nd litter was also a huge success producing 4 beautiful puppies to 'NL, DK & Int Ch Lanakeshena Love in Motion at Veredon'. Our 2 keepers from this litter took the show world by storm Bella 'Ch Supeta's Eclipse JW ShCM' who was the UK TOP WHIPPET PUPPY in 2012 and took 7 CC's, was WINNER OF THE HOUND GROUP PAIGNTON CH SHOW 2014 and WINNER OF THE HOUND GROUP IN KASSELL GERMANY IN 2015. Her brother Teddy 'Supeta's Breaking Dawn' also took 2 CC's and multiple RCC's.
We are immensely proud as breeders to have had so much success from just the 2 litters we had from Peppa,
and due to this she was awarded the UK TOP WHIPPET BROOD BITCH 2015.
In 2015 we welcomed Rene 'Ger Ch Shiny Sensation's Spirit of Love For Supeta ShCM (Imp NLD)' from our dear friend Margreet Veenstra - Shiny Sensation's Whippets. Rene was a complete surprise for Fiona arranged tactfully between Sue and Margreet. Rene arrived the day before Whippets at Crufts in 2014 with Fiona having shown so much interest in her over photo's posted on Facebook and it was love at first site. Rene was an exciting addition to the team as her grandmother was a Supeta bitch who was the founding bitch for Margreet's kennel. We knew she would become a great asset to our breeding program in years to come. Rene had some considerable success in the show ring taking her German VDH title on her limited visits to the continent and she also picked up her ShCM at UK open shows. She also has a RCC to her credit, however Rene's virtues have resided in the whelping box being the most fantastic mother to all of her puppies. Rene whelped her first litter in 2016 to Muti Ch Supeta's Ziggylicious and produced a beautiful litter of puppies of which we kept a male, Robbie 'Supeta's Secret Weapon' who has had some considerable success in the show ring winning numerous BPD's at Ch Shows and a BPIB at Driffield Ch Show in 2017. Although lightly shown as an adult Robbie has taken multiple class wins in limit and won Post Graduate Dog at Crufts 2019!
Rene then left to go back to Margreet in 2018 for an agreed litter to the ever famous Can Ch Forgetmenot Sobers Don Diablo, from which we acquired another son Franco 'Shiny Sensation's Wish Upon A Star With Supeta JW (Imp NLD)'. Franco took the show world by storm taking BPIB at his first Championship Show SWKA. From then he has continued to rack up his tally of wins with more than 13 Ch Show wins so far! He has also now sired some beautiful children of his own.
In 2019 Rene was mated once more to the wonderful Rivarco Jack Daniels ShCM, from which we had a very colourful litter of puppies including some beautiful black brindles. The puppies in this litter were of beautiful quality and made their debut to the show ring in late 2019. Sue has handled a the fawn male from this litter, 'Supeta's Mojito' and has so far had some great success including 2nd in Minor Puppy Dog at Crufts 2020! We will now see what the future brings for these youngsters.
Fast forward to 2020 we have welcomed two bitches from other kennels into our breeding program, Katy 'CH OSW Crosscop Let It Shine For Supeta JW ShCEx' (Ardencote Star Gazer ex Ch Nothing compares To You at Crosscop JW) bred by Leigh Morris and George Waddell of Crosscop Whippets, and Evie 'Envisage This At Supeta' (Ch Falconcrag Another Class ex Supeta's The Special One Of Veredon - who is a daughter of Bella) bred by Russell Sykes of Veredon Whippets and owned in partnership with Elsa McKayof Jubrancy Whippets. Fiona had always wanted a daughter from the famous Hazel from the moment she saw her as a puppy, so we were placed on a waiting list from her second litter. Little did we know that in 2018 Fiona would be given the privilege of handling Katy for Leigh and George who was the pick of Hazel's first litter to Gazer 'Ardencote Star Gazer'. Following their debut at a Ch show taking 3rd in MPB, Leigh advised Fiona took Katy home to bond for a week or so.... its fair to say that week is still ongoing until this day. Fiona is now a joint owner of Katy and between them they dominated the show ring in 2019 taking 7 CC's, 4 RCC's, 2 x Group 1, 1 x Group 3, 1 x Group 4, BEST IN SHOW at Southern Counties CA and RESERVE BEST IN SHOW at SKC (August)! They finished the year at the UK's TOP WHIPPET of 2019! Fiona, Leigh and George plan to have their first litter from Katy in 2020 under the Crosscop affix. All we will say is WATCH THIS SPACE!
Evie 'Envisage This At Supeta' joined our kennel in 2019 from our dear friend Russell Sykes of Veredon Whippets, who's dogs feature regularly in our pedigrees. Evie is a daughter of Megan 'Supeta's The Special One Of Veredon' who is a daughter of Bella 'Ch Supeta's Eclipse JW ShCM'. Bella's sire is owned by Russell, so to have a grand daughter was very exciting for him. For us to then have a daughter back from Megan was an exciting prospect and boy hasn't she done well in her short show career taking 3 x BPIB at Ch Shows - SWKA 2019, WCOW 2019 & Boston 2020! Evie also took HOUND PUPPY GROUP 1 and BEST PUPPY IN SHOW at SWKA which unbelievably was her debut show! No prouder feeling for ourselves or Russell to watch Elsa and Evie take the top spot.
It is safe to say our dedication to this beautiful breed continues and we are still having great success
in the show ring and with our breeding program.
