My Grandad had a whippet. He got it when she was 8 weeks old. Named her Penny Rose. She we golden! Beautiful dog. When she was 21 human years she got out the house. Every one went out looking for her. We got her back but she died the next day. Vet said it was shock. She was a house dog, never left the house on her own. All we have left of her is pictures and some of her hair. Miss her so much!
