    The photo of dad with the three puppets - the girl? up the back is gorgeous! What are her colours usually called? She is very striking!

    I love the one with all the dogs scattered sleeping along the verandah! It looks great! I'd love to be able to look outside at something like that!

    She is a blue fawn. She is one of two I am keeping, but she may get too big. Will have to wait and see. Her name is Moo.

    The blue has come thru from fathers side whose parents are blue brindle mother and very light red fawn father.

    Of course Greys you can come for a visit. That goes for anyone who is passing by our area in the NW of Sydney. The more handling they get the better.

    Two puppies woke us up at 2am needing to go to the toilet and then the lot of them woke us up at 5:30 wanting to outside.

    So it's into the puppy run & breakfast. I can hear them carrying on because they want to be with the big dogs but until the big dogs have let of steam and had their breakfast they will just have to suffice with seeing them thru the mesh fencing. Typical whippet puppies, they don't realise they're still little.

    No the 2am thing doesn't thrill me, I'd be happy if they would use the paper and I'll clean it up in the morning. But no; again typical whippets like to be clean.

    Whippets can come in any colour or variety of colours.

    P3070616.jpg

    The girl looking straight at the camera is Star, the other girl I am keeping. She is Red Fawn & White Particoloured.

    As they all have white with patches of colour they are called particoloured.

    Star has a very nice front like her dad and like Moo stands over a lot of ground. She is not as big as Moo.

    Their weights range (as of last Wed) from 2.5, 2.8 and Moo and Boyd (boy puppy) are 3kg.

    Whippets grow very fast and because like all puppies are born with snub faces they change a lot, so picking show quality at a young age is very difficult particularly when this is a maiden mating.

    I will run both these girls on for a few months and if both are good find a show home for one of them or if not a pet home for one or both. I find a lot of people with young kids don't mind their puppy being a bit older, already house and lead trained being a bonus.

    Yay, I'm gonna get me some puppy cuddles!

    Better do a bag search of me though MAC, my handbag is quite large and may be a bit fatter on leaving than when I arrived!

    Ha, I'll bet by 2am you'll bring the little screamer back Grey. When they want to be let out to go to the toilet, they want to be let out NOW
