Whippets In Action
Taken with a Canon 1D and Sigma 100-300 IF while the Whippets jump over a 6 foot wide depression in the field. Had a blast setting up the shoot to capture this image. Could not have captured a better moment for the family to cherish. Their owners have created a myriad of mowed trails on 27 acres that the whippets get to enjoy and exercise.
Whippet Puppy Print - My friend Chris Horne did a painting of whippet puppies I recently posted that was very popular. Beautiful art work from the photo. Prints are available for $50. Link provided by hitting photo.
Chase, more than any other dog at the daycare, likes to stay warm by snuggling up with other dogs. She's doesn't seem to be that picky about who she sleeps with either, as long as they stay still long enough for her to plop herself on them. She does it so often that it took both Cheryl and I to record her with, clockwise from the top left corner, Chloe, Jake, Ben, and Andie.
Whippet cigarette card, 1936 "The Whippet, a graceful little dog, is known in colliery districts as the poor man's Greyhound, for it is a favourite pet with the miners, who use it for racing and rabbit coursing. In certain parts of England experiments have been made with this dog on Greyhound tracks, but it has not yet ousted its larger brother from this field of sport. The Whippet is rather shy of strangers but a good companion."
