Pinot with 16 months

During our last whippet walk, Daniel and Diana took some great pictures of Pinot. I am very happy how he has developed in the last months❤

It’s cheesy, I know, but this dog makes me so happy.

Character Study

I know, it’s been a while. A long while. A very long while since I have last posted something here. But! We are back, beware.

In the meantime, I have bothered to make a very detailed, painfully researched character study of Pinot. For all those who have wondered what living with Pinot is like, let me show you:image-6image-5image-4image-3image-2imageimage-1

 

An hommage to the world’s most phlegmatic dog.

Off To The Races

Pinot the sloth has debuted at the racing tracks this weekend. I don’t know exactly what made me believe that the laziest dog in the world, who more or less forms a symbiosis with my sofa, might enjoy track racing. But at least I was realistic enough to not expect too much.Foto

We gave it a shot nonetheless.

But the real fun was of course beside the racing track.

** Commercial dog racing is forbidden in Austria. This racing track is owned by a sighthound racing asscoiation, who do this for fun and to entertain their dogs, but not to exploit or injure them. I do not support commercial sighthound racing.

The Cool Kid

Now that summer is almost here, human is working in a 40-hour desktop job and desperately lacks some exercise, human bought a bike. Why? To cycle the 10 kilometers to work (and ride back home in the bus to avoid the uphill cycling part when going home – human didn’t turn thaaaat sporty).

But Pinot is very upset, his once so relaxed 10 kilometer walk along the Danube Canal every morning has now turned into extreme sport! And I think he swears under his (out of) breath whenever passers-y-humans exclaim “Finally someone who offers a sighthound the exercise he needs!” They really have no idea…

And Grzegorz from black&WHI(te)PPETS ‘remixed’ this picture to make it even cooler. I think one day I have to print it in poster size and frame it🙂

USO (Unidentified Swimming Object)

Is it a seal? Is it an otter? No, it’s a swimming whippet.

Today Pinot (voluntarily!) discovered the joys of swimming. It was an almost summer like day, with temperatures around 25°C, so to cool himself down, Pinot decided that he’d try swimming and I think he actually liked it.RdKAwsh0eBBCfHBg9AzLgS7R1uGZcbIv7rQ0N0T1Rhw
