We found our whippet in an unusual way.

There was a pet store in the mall full of everything cute and fluffy but there was a star in that store. An adorable golden retriever playing with an equally beautiful golden lab.

I looked around and to my surprise, my 7 year old was glued to a cage with a tiny whippet. She stared at him and he stared at her back motionless.

He licked her face full of tears now and barked at anybody who wanted to take him back. They sat on the floor together like they knew each other forever.
