Whippet Dog Story: CoCo Crispy
by David Merrill
My wife says that nobody has more love for animals than I do.
Dogs and cats have been lifetime friends and all types of wild animals know where to find me.
I'm an animal magnet.
After 10 years w/Italian Greyhounds, I adopted an unwanted Whippet.
Oh, what a joy he is.
So smart and loving. He's never met a stranger. At 6 months old his owner thought he was too big and gave him up. STUPID HUMAN.
In one day I taught him to use a bath tub as a litter box. In 10 minutes he learned to sit for a cookie, one squirt of water in the face and he learned what NO means!
So much smarted than any of the 3 IGs we've had.
I had a Standard Poodle for 10 years and CoCo is as smart as she was.
He's 8 months now. 18 inches & 20 lbs. I just wish that I had been fortunate enough to have had a Whippet 50 years ago.
