Winkin' Whippets

They look like they're winking as they run full speed through the brush, but it's a hard-wired response to protect their eyes.



Wide open spaces = wide open eyes



Eyes closed as they rest and hang out with The Pod, who at almost 14 years of age prefers walks around the block and lying in her bed.

Hi Y'all,

Just stopped by from "What Dogs Do" to say hello.

Oh I do so love to watch Whippets and Greyhounds run! I can never curl my legs under or stretch out like that!

Y'all come by now,
Hawk aka BrownDog
