Friday Whippet Blogging

Wolfhound Edition

The lanky Scottish Deerhound who was the surprise Best in Show winner at Westminster Dog Show now has a litter of puppies ready to trot in her footsteps after retiring from the ring.

The five-year-old champion, known as Ch Foxcliffe Hickory Wind, made history as the first of her breed to win the competition in February – and now tails are wagging for her adorable first litter of nine.

Playing with the seven-week-old pups on a 50-acre farm in Flint Hill, Virginia, Hickory is already giving her brood lessons in how to become top dog.

Sighthound puppies are very cute. Awwww…..

Benjamin misses his brother Whylie who moved to Colorado. Good thing Whylie is keeping it warm.

Mama Gika would be so proud.

It’s a whippet. I don’t know who to credit for the photo, but Matthew sent along the link. Thank you Matthew, I think.

So who’s going to geek out for us and tell us what this (unhappy) whippet is dressed up like and from what movie?

Last week there were 4 whippets in the nursery.

Here’s three in a row!


And here’s Benjamin on the other side.


And then it occurred to me I could move one over and have all 4 in one row. Spectacular!


Can you believe they were still long enough for the photo?

Jaxx is visiting, which means we have three whippets here. And when I went to get a cup of coffee I noticed that all three dogs are staking out separate rooms for themselves.

I see Jaxx is in the dog bed in the living room.

Benjamin is in the guest bedroom, as if we had a whippet guest over, which we do.

And Jason has staked out Jaxx’ dog bed in the master bedroom.

Whippets for everyone!
