Now this is a somewhat confusing picture. You may be wondering what exactly is going on. The whippets are in the office storage area on a cold day and the office is a mess, so somehow the 2 dog beds got moved out of the way and stacked on top of each other, 3 beds high, and Jason on the bottom doesn’t seem to mind Benjamin stacked on top of him.
Feeding 4 whippets thanksgiving leftovers.
We took the whippets to the beach and Benjamin got caught in a wave and came out and rolled in the sand.
So he sat awhile to dry off while Jason kept playing in the background.
In case you were wondering, whippets don’t usually get all the way in the water at the beach. They’ll wade in a little, but whippets aren’t too keen on the ocean.
See what happens to Benjamin when I get my hands on too many photo filters.
It’s warm, but still they’re hiding under blankets for the morning.
It’s started getting colder. Maybe a bit warmer next week? Anyway its jacket and blanket season for the whippets.
Whippets like to rest up and watch out the window for passing bunnies.
The story of the whippet is often told in England in the pubs and pastie shops of Upper Brunswichshire. The story of the English whippet is famous throughout the British Isles, as told on the heath. For when the whippet tales are told on the heath the bunnies all cock their pink furry ears and watch the horizon for the splinter-fast racing form of the bunny-murdering hunter known as the whippet.
Oh the horror!
For the whippet can calculate the triangulated distances in the English distances of the Scottish plains along the coast of the Isle of Man. Hungry though the speedster may be, there is no whippet in Wales.
In case you didn’t know, this is not breed standard for whippets.
“Erect ears should be severely penalized.”
Another whippet lying around the house.
Jaxx gets comfortable, as only a whippet can.
When Amica came to visit, and there were more whippets hanging around than you care to imagine. (Although if you come by the store you can say hi to all of them. At once!)
I’m back! And now there are 4 whippets at the nursery for the next 3-4 weeks, so come on by and say hi to everyone.
That’s Benjamin and Jason, of course, and visiting from Santa Cruz is Benjamin’s sister Amica, and cousin Jaxx. Jaxx is the one facing forward.
Everyone can now do a happy dance.
When 4 whippets walking down the street ran into 3 whippets walking down the street, a whippet fest 2012 occurred! Spontaneous whippeting!
2 of those are mine and 2 more are visiting starting today for the next month or so.
(We’ll see if a public shaming works for Jason.)
Whippets at the Beach
Benjamin’s sister Amica came and visited us. So many sleeping whippets!
