I can’t wait for the BLONDE-Litter reunion tomorrow in Zakopane! After more than a year, Pinot will meet his sisters Leia and Kiwi and also hopefully his brother Kenzo! (Lucky Vinnie now lives in France). You will be spammed with millions of pictures, beware!
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.
It’s been a while since I last joined one of our whippet walks since my car broke down, but last weekend I finally managed to join the frolicking whippets again. We went to this beachy strip near the Danube and I don’t know what it is that makes whippets go crazy but the dogs went mental. See for yourself.
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.
An hommage to the world’s most phlegmatic dog.
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.
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.
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🙂
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.
Thank you for this beautiful al-most-summer-day whippet walk!
