Katie and Grace

Hello, we are two sighthounds who like to blog and Tweet.

I am Katie Whippet - I am a brindle and white whippet, who likes to sleep and eat. I do have some duties, I keep the sofa safe, bark at the bin men, steal and hide shoes and help the puppy evict cats from our garden.

I am Grace Puppy - I am Grace Puppy - I am not actually a puppy any more, but, because I am young, Katie Whippet calls me puppy. I like to whine and play. My duties are keeping watch for cats in the garden.

We live with Mummy, and two cats, Yazz Cat and Tom Cat and like to tell everyone about what we are getting up to.

Pawly tail

Hello, it do be Katie Whippet here.  I have broken my tail! I did be doings it at the Vets! Mummy do be takings me to the vets, because I had an eye infection. Which was being stubborn, and would not clear up.  After the vet had been poking around in my eyeball, I was not letting her anywhere near me again, so when she went to lift me down from the examination table, I decided to jump.  I jumped and did be doings banging my tail on the side of he table.  Mummy and the vet were so worried I had hurt my legs, they did not notice my poorly tail. I must have been doings catching it on the side of the table as I came down.  Next day, mummy did be noticing that I do be licking my tail, and do beings takings a look at it.  She sees it being poorly and does be taking be back to the vets! OMD! No! that place is clearly dangerous!

Anyway, we do be seeings a different vet - phew! Who says I had probably broken my tail, but, like ribs and toes in humans, there is not much they can be doings.  So he be putting a huge bandage on it to it do beings protected. 

I was, and still am, very protective of my pawly tail!

If I had been a prize show whippet, the vet said they could straighten it, but Mummy did do sayings, 'No, she has not got the temperament for showing!' How Rude! I am of perfect standing! 

Well, mummy had to take me back to be seeings the vet yet agains, and it was the vet who was there when I did be doings breakings my tail!  I did not be doings goings on the table.  I just let her do looking at it.  She be giving mummy some more dressings to stop me licking.  I managed to be doings escapings without further injury - Phew!

Nowings, I do be having a lump in my tail.  Mummy takes great delight in telling peoples how II did be doings breakings it - which is very rude!   I do not be wanting peoples to be inspecting my tail!  Mummy did try to show a friend my tail, and I did runnings offs!  I do not be wantings any one touching or even lookings at my pawly tail thank you.  I am still very protective!
