    For those of you not on my fb or did

    Next month, we will be welcoming a puppy into our family! It is a longhaired whippet who was born on September 4th. I don’t know if it’s going to be a boy or girl; either will work so it’s all about temperment. The breeder will, hopefully, have a few for us to choose from. There is an assortment of different brindle colors, a sable & a fawn.
    It’s been almost ten years since we’ve had a young puppy so it’s a little scary LOL but LHW are generally very easy puppies, so….!

    Congratulations! What made you choose that breed? Have you had one before?
    If I am ever able to offer another dog a home, it would be a corgi, a mature one.
    I will always miss the one I had.

    Thanks! We first saw them at a MA Pet Expo….then at NH Expo & we were enamored with them. We’ve been talking about them & talking with breeders/owners for 4 years and they sound perfect for us. LHW are not an AKC registered breed and there are not many non-pups that need a home.

    We went to a “whippie party” on Friday night then a LHW show on Saturday & I think that just made the wait worse LOL.

    I understand (about getting a puppy). I just don’t think I’d be up for it, but, you never know πŸ™‚

    I never thought I’d be up for another puppy; Boone was SO hard but if I want a LHW, I have no choice. I’ve seen two older ones available, same home, in the last four years.

    Congrats! I would so love another puppy right now and I know Bentley would love a friend, but we have to wait til we get a house πŸ™ I myself have been looking at breeders for Cane Corsos, so by the time we can get one I’ll be prepared and have the breeder chosen already. Corso’s are not for everyone, so I’d much rather get a puppy and train it myself having experience with powerful breeds, than go through a mastiff rescue. People don’t give away Corso’s for no reason…usually its temperment problems.

    Make sure and post some pictures when he/she comes home!!!

    A breeder of Cane Corso’s is in a group I am on. If you are on FB, look up PrideNJoyz Cane Corso. Website is pridenjoyzcanecorso dot com. She is a raw feeder if I remember correctly.

    Hee Hee Hee! A puppy? You go girl!!! I didn’t know they came in long hair. Very nice looking. My fingers, toes, and eyeballs are crossed for you.

    I’m sure it will be a great experience. Best wishes! πŸ™‚

    I told you this already, but I’m so excited for you! I love Whippets, and I love dogs with some hair, so it’s gonna be great. And you’ll rock the puppy! I agree they are a bit daunting, but so much fun πŸ™‚

    Marie- Thanks I’ll look them up. I’ve looked into a few, but I could always use more to pick from

    Hii everyone.. Just got a 2month old smooth fox terrier.. He is just so adorable.. Trying to toilet train him but it aint easy. .Havent been sleeping since . Hardly for 2hours. But the joy he brings to me is way more than anything else in the world. I am so lucky to have him . He has injured his hind leg bone somehow.. but nothing to worry. The vet said it should heal with complete rest and salt water compressions. Fingers crossed. Wynn just cant stop running hes like this turbo machine ..picks up everything and anything !! Exhausted. (lol)
    Anyways needed some good tips on his diet.

    Congratulations and good luck with the new puppy! Be sure to post some pics of the little one when you get it home. Does this mean you’ll be changing your profile picture? πŸ™‚

    So sorry about Gemma :(. She’s a beautiful dog. I know what you mean about removing the picture. My kitty that died last Christmas is still the background of my phone

    Awe, so sorry Pitlove. I kept my old boy as my laptop BG pic for a couple of years after he died. He was on my old phone too!
