Jimmy – Whippet

Jimmy is a creature of contrasts.

Let him loose in a (fenced!) dog park and he is guaranteed to leave the other dogs in his dust. Jimmy¬†darts and weaves about them, touching 60 km/hr. Seeming to relish in his speed and their exhaustion. It is a wonderful thing to behold (if a tad unfair on the other dogs…).

However at home Jimmy adopts an entirely different persona. Barely moving from his favorite cushion he only occasionally raises his head to observe the comings and goings of the household with a somewhat detached disinterest until, that is, a tasty treat is in the offing or a squeaky ball appears…then the speed hound is back in top form, darting about the place at full throttle (but luckily never knocking a thing over…yet!).
