This quickie post is for Marisa - Pippi (my banner) is a Whippet, which is like a small greyhound. Check out Whippet Victorian Association site. They have the most delightful personality - very calm, and gentle and the most perfect pet for our house - she loves to be a couch potato, all day if need be, then whips outside or on walk and her eyes and ears perk up for a sprint (especially if she can chase a magpie or two!) Her fur is like velvet and when she looks up at you and sighs contently from your lap, all is right with the world. We love and adore her, what more can we say!
