whippet wins

Did I mention that my mother is now a serious dog fancier?

While visiting Sage, she and my sister Reb told us how Max, their 9-month-old whippet, won 7 prizes at a dog show, besting many other breeds.

Whippets are kin to Greyhounds, and are a member of a group of hounds known as sighthounds, which include Greyhounds, Afghan Hounds, Salukis, Borzois (Russian Wolfhounds), and others.

Dog shows strike me as quite interesting events (go and see Christopher Guest’s “Best In Show” for a hilarious look at things like that).

In the one Max competed in, he ultimately lost the ultimate prize to a German Shepherd (valued at P2.5M), but held his own with great élan.
