10 Things Only A Whippet Owner Would Understand

If you own a Whippet, we bet you can relate:

1. We know that Whippets have two speeds: 35 mph or out cold on the couch. Beauty in motion and at rest.

2. We are used to all of our clothes and furniture being covered in short, hard hairs. No flannel sheets for us.

3. We can't ever let them off leash—these sighthounds constantly have their eyes out for bunnies or anything else that moves. If they see one, all else is forgotten.

4. Many dog owners get a Whippet as their second dog to exercise the first (or the kids)!

 

5. Whippets prefer to be spoiled, so we know they'll need soft beds and to be allowed under the covers.

6. Guard dogs? Only if you want them to kiss the burglar and show him where the valuables are kept!

7. Beware of those big, brown Whippet eyes—they will melt your heart and cause a Whippet addiction more fierce than one for potato chips (you can never have just one)!

8. We say this often: "No, he is not a Greyhound. No, he is not skinny. He is a Whippet!"

9. Puppies are notorious chewers, so we know to put our favorite shoes away.
