Photo a day.....17th January
This beautiful statue is also at Osborne House. Queen Victoria must have had the same taste in dogs as we have.....! I think this is a greyhound' rather than a Whippet' but it is a beauty, isn't it?
The model was obviously healthy, you can see his ribs! Apparently you are supposed to be able to see two ribs on a Whippet. On my two you can't see any....and Lulu is actually a little overweight. We have a constant battle with her over food and have to buy very expensive stuff from the vet for her. Freddie has only a small appetite, so although he is very marginally overweight for a Whippet he is no trouble to keep at that size. He is a picky eater and always wants what she has, so won't eat until she has finished hers....then sighs and eats his. I think he has a very complex nature!
