Wow you got him into the water willingly? Amazing!!

He is just beautiful. We have a whippet, but he would never consider going into the water. Ever!

That is absolutely amazing! I can't believe that the whippet is actually swimming!

That is the first and probably the only time I'll ever see evidence of a whippet in water! :)

How did you do it? And what's his/her name?

Hmm. Awwwwwwwhippet? That will be my saying of the day. xD

I thought they would get hypothermia if they stayed in there for too long, because of the low body fat and thin skin...

He sure is beautiful! But, I also would like to know, how did you get him to swim willingly? I've never known any whippet to like swimming!

Hey thanks for the replys. Ok I got better how about a whippet diving!

Her name is Ashley, she loves playing with the kong. slowly we threw it in the water. as time went by we threw it further until she swam. Pics were taken on a hot day last week.

Wow, that is truly unique! I guess that's why I couldn't see her in the first picture - she was diving!

So neat!!! What a special girl! :D
