Well that was an entertaining 4 minutes. That old toy survived Breezer's puppy-hood, but just wasn't tough enough to make it through another whippet. Last week he got a hold of a long (pencil shaped) eraser - we haven't discovered where he stashed it, but every day he brings a few pieces of it out on display.

It's hard to catch a whippet in full flight and still get a sharp photo, so when things fall into place it's time to show off. Here's another shot of Bailey burning off some happy energy during a "warm" spell. He started with his jacket on but once we got moving, the sun made it comfy to go with natural fur at -7c.

Winter blew in with a vengeance today so the best thing for whippets is to stay indoors and enjoy a leather chew.
To wish away the cold, here are some photos from last summer when Bailey had a blast running and playing with his lady friend Lola, who's a potent combination of greyhound and wolfhound. She's just over a year old, very sweet, and very fast. Bailey learned that if he initiates a run and keeps changing direction, he can keep ahead of her. Otherwise he's no longer the fastest dog in the park - which never stops them from immensely enjoying the supersonic play.

Some people have booties for their dogs but I've never tried them on a sighthound. I think they would cramp Bailey's style and prevent him from making fast turns like above.
He was involved in a very amusing round of play a couple of days ago with a couple of border collies - too bad I didn't have my camera with me. The bc's tried to herd Bailey, who effortlessly squirted out of their grasp time after time with a big grin on his face, just happy to have a reason to run around. The bc's were getting a little frustrated, and at the end of it they were huddled together about 6 feet apart watching Bailey prance around. Hmm, wonder who herded whom?? :-)

Bailey must have overheard me complaining that there weren't enough extension cords in the house. So he decided to help out and create several cords out of 1 that was left within his reach - not plugged in of course. 12-gauge wire....no match for whippet teeth!

Welcome to Bailey's voice on the 'net! Bailey is a 2 year old male whippet who lives in Calgary - his favourite activities are running, eating and sleeping. wotta surprise.
As a quick introduction, here's a photo taken in the summer. There will be more to come as we will communicate more via pictures than words.
