Ribsy the Whippet
Hamilton, Ontario
My name's Ribsy, and I am a handsome and surly whippet. I have been blogging since July 2004, when I was only three months old. I pee on my leg sometimes, but really, that's my only flaw.
Interests: Cheese, politics, squirrels, nesting, roller skaters, chinning for attention.

So true, whippet-kept human. They are truly a special kind of dog which takes a special kind of appreciation.

Couldn't agree with you more, Whippet Momma. To that person, I say, just because my dog doesn't jump up on you and slobber you with attention doesn't make him boring. That makes him well-behaved and dignified. Thanks for writing, Girl

Ribsy caught his Girl looking adoringly at these online and who can blame her. These lovely underthings are from Smoking Lily, a favourite store of Girl's ever since they started festooning their fashions with a sporty greyhound print (yes, officially... Continue reading

So true! At least it dried up nicely in the sun and just flaked off with the towel. Except the bits that came with me to the bed. Oops.
