I was browsing through one of my favourite dog blogs FOURANDSONS When I came across Ben Wood and his delightful whippet babies. I am a huge fan of Whippets, part of the sighthound family, they are playful, intelligent and the miniature version of a Greyhound.. They are quite and gentle and are happy to spend the day napping and chilling out (again much like their Greyhound cousins).
Like Ben says in his Four and Sons interview when asked why did you decide to adopt a Whippet….
“When I moved over to Melbourne I moved into a three storey townhouse so it meant the big dogs I had always owned wouldn’t be appropriate. I considered a Dachshund until I realised the stairs would make them into a slinky. So I chose a whippet as I heard they slept a lot each day and generally did their own thing. They don’t smell, they barely lose hair, they don’t need constant attention and they have a good temperament so I’m really happy I got one by chance. And of course one good whippet deserves another so now we have Billy”.
