Greetings from Minnie

Whippet, 4 years old

🌳 Countryside dog
🍷 Lives with adults only

My favourite thing about Minnie is...

She is very vocal and can sit in front of you and and whippet speak til she gets what she’s after.

The biggest challenge with Minnie is...

When she zooms about the place it’s difficult to recall her. She’s great at doing whirlys round and round then changes direction.

The most surprising thing about owning a Whippet is...

How lovable and affectionate they are, Minnie won’t get out of her bed til dinnertime just burrows under the blankets til then. Hardly ever barks, prefers to lick the postman to death.

What I wish I’d known about Whippets is...

That they can have sensitive stomachs and you have to watch what you feed them on , but once you find the right food it’s fine.

Did you know?

While similar to the Greyhound (the fastest dog on earth), the Whippet, being lighter built, has got better acceleration, and over very short distances will be able to beat them.
