So I think I'm going to start blogging again. I don't understand the new Facebook so I think this will be a great way to express my random thoughts.
Random thought for the day: everyone should own atLEAST one whippet. Seriously. They're amazing. I didn't even know what a whippet was until Kyle (aka my boyfriend) introduced me to them. And then we got Flash. And now he's the love of my life :)
(Meet Flash. He doesn't really have a problem with invading personal space.)
Whippets are awesome. They love you unconditionally without any judgement. They cuddle constantly. They're loyal and have amazing personalities. They're a little sensitive (ok, they're freakishly sensitive), some people think they're too skinny and bony but that doesn't stop them from wanted to crawl in your lap every chance they get. They're graceful (when they're running), they're fast, athletic, can turn on a dime. And did I mention that they're unbelievably adorable? It's true.
(Flash after he won the "Turtle Award". For the uninitiated, thats the award for the slowest dog in whippet racing. He loves his turtle so much)
It's great when we take Flash to the dog park. People always say, "oh look at the skinny dog" or "it's a greyhound puppy" (wrong!). I feel like an ambassador for the breed when we're out and about. Whippets are from the same family as Greyhounds, part of the Sighthound group. That means long nose, muscular body, great eyesight and hearing, and a will to chase anything furry (which is a problem since we know lots of people with cats.)
So if you ever get the chance, you should definitely get one. Because they're awesome. And on tough days, some whippet cuddle time is exactly what I need :) Thanks Flash <3
