Merlin Magic Dog

by Lauren Stevenson
(Northern Ireland)

Merlin in bed

Merlin in bed

Name: Merlin
Breed:Whippet
Sex:Male
Neutered
Food: Fish (Barking Heads)
Likes: Sleeping and our family dogs
Dislikes: New dogs and young children
Sport: Likes to run in the park
Favourite toys: Fluffy ones

He can't be around stray or new dogs as he would attack them. He is devoted to our family dogs including a chihuahua.

He can't be around young children as he is scared and backs off. If he is running he can get a bit over powering and he could accidentally knock them over maybe.

Always have to make sure there are no young children or dogs in park before letting him off and I think it's getting to the point where he will have to stay on the lead at all times.

Jumping Jack with Favourite Toy....

by Susan Roome
(Tauranga, New Zealand)


JJ is an eighteen month old whippet from Dunedin, New Zealand, living in Tauranga. He is boisterous, hilarious and thoroughly gorgeous dog - a favourite with the pack we socialise with.

We are trying agility, but at the moment he is going through a rebellious stage. Much to my embarrassment, he collected a dog from the class next door and raced around the field a few times before returning to the course to go through a tunnel the wrong way.....

Chili Bean & Disco Queen

Wedding Whippets!

Disco goes to work!
Chili & Disco Cuddling

Chili Bean is an 11 year old retired lure courser, and my first whippet. I got Chili 6 years ago when he was 5. He is a total couch potato and loves to cuddle 24/7.

Disco is my energetic, quirky 1 year old little girl who I got when she was 6 months. She is known to cause trouble and always finds a way to make you laugh!

Disco and Chili are the best of buddies who love long walks through the trail, romping around at the dog park, and play wrestling over toys together.

These two whippets have my heart and are the true definition of a whippet and mans best friend!

Tuvia, a Dandy!

by Lorena
(Costa Rica)


He is my baby, a 2 years old Whippet boy!

He stole my heart from the moment he was born, he is Greta´s son. He is my loyal grandson as I call him when I talk to people.

My 3 whippets are sooooooo spoiled, but I have some discipline too.

I enjoy my weekends with them from the very morning until night time, they are my world.

I cannot imagine another breed better than whippets.

This is my lovely girl Barley,

Not only stole our hearts very quickly but will also poach any spare morsel going!

She seems to pop up stealthily at the right moment. We think she's a beauty.

It's a Dog's Life

by Maria Klingner
(Canberra ACT Australia)

Devo the Diamond dog

Devo the Diamond dog

Our Devo, the wonder whippet loves to slouch around on the couch all day AND all night. However he LOVES to go for his daily walks and enjoys running off the lead.

This photo was taken when Devo visited the beach for the first time. There was not another creature on the beach that morning, so we had the entire coastline to ourselves!

He ran and danced till he could barely stand, and to my surprise, absolutely loved swimming and chasing the waves.

He is the best little dude, my best friend. I am so glad he is in our lives. When I am feeling down, he sits and listens and snuggles in even more.

I think Devo is quietly excited if either one of us is home sick. He is allowed to sleep on the bed ALL day! He is a wonderful nurse.

Devo is our first whippet, and what a beautiful breed of dog they are.
