I have been toying with the idea of writing a series of interesting and, hopefully, fun facts about Whippets since I started the blog, and today I finally decided to run with it, even though I haven’t got absolutely everything figured out. Being a control freak, it took me a while to realise that, if I wait until I know exactly what I’m going to write for a whole year and I’m happy with every word, I wouldn’t get around to actually publishing anything until my 80th birthday.
So no more waiting, I think it’s time to start sharing my immense love and limited knowledge of this wonderful breed with everyone who is interested and patient enough to read my posts. And if they help even one person decide that a sweet, gentle, elegant and loving whippet is the right dog for them, then I’ll be happy.
The first Whippet Facts post is scheduled for next Monday. I know that a whole week might seem like a long time to wait, but it isn’t really. You flick your fingers and it’s gone. But, for those of you who can’t wait – one can be wishful! – I leave you with a photo of George, just to prove that whippets are rather beautiful creatures:
