Snorkelling Sighthound

One of Zippy's many talents is, believe it or not, snorkelling! After I learnt that he can hold his breath under water, I invented a new way of entertaining him on a hot day. Zippy is completely against getting wet the vast majority of the time, but on a hot day damp paws aren't such a bad thing. 
I got out an old kiddies paddling pool, filled it with water and threw treats in the water for him to retrieve. 


Zippy and Toby: Play Date

Elegant as a unicorn,

Cute as a powder puff,

Fierce as a meerkat,

Turning everyone's world upside down,

And confusing the heck outta everyone... That's Toby!


Whippet Keyring DIY

Want to bling up your life sighthound style?
The answer is here! An incredibly cute whippet keyring DIY

What you will need
Felt (the thicker the better)
Keyring rings (from craft or discount stores)
Hand sewing needle

Start by gathering your materials, this is the kind of ring used:
 Draw a simple outline of a whippet or desired shape
Cut two pieces of this shape out of felt and using a running stitch handsew the pieces together, leaving a gap ontop to attach the ring
And done!

Stink Eye Sunday

Zippy got a new snood... They say dogs are colour blind, but I have a feeling Zippy does not appreciate the rainbow colour scheme.


Tasy Tuesday: Crunch Banana Cookies

There's one food Rory loves, and that's bananas. Yep, he goes bananas for bananas!

For this recipe you will need:
1 banana
1 tablespoon of cold pressed coconut oil
1 cup of rice flour 
1 egg
An oven
A willing taste tester 

Mash all ingredients together, add flour and stir
 Form a dough
Cut into shapes
It was simplest to just cut with a knife, not with cookie cutters. Now bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit or 180 degrees Celsius for 15 minutes or until golden brown and crunchy.
Now beg!
 Rory approves

Zippy and Toby: Play Date

Guess who was visiting next door today? ...TOBY! Super Excited!

Play bow

Naughty Whippet was trying to dig up the lawn. 
For some reason Zippy has been digging in certain patches of next door's lawn and eating the grass roots. Please comment below if you have any theory as to why he is doing this.

Disrespecting young'un  :P

Zippy is in another one of his "moods". 

"GO AWAY!" ...yep... he's in one of his moods all right.

Looks like it's bedtime

Yep! Rory agrees, it's bedtime.

Funny Friday

Sometimes the whippets are just a bit ... funny
Somehow Rory got... stuck?
