Considering a Whippet?


Devo and his new best friend Shawn

Most whippets are very good with kids, but no dog of any breed should be left alone with young children. Think of your dog as a pair of scissors ... you wouldn't leave your toddler alone with them, but under supervision, she'll learn to use them correctly. Under supervision, both your child and your dog will learn to play together safely and happily. Please see Toddlers & Dogs for some very useful information!

Timbreblue Flirts With Shakespeare "Viola" PDF Print E-mail

ViolaViola was special from the very moment she was born. Our elderly whippet, Alexis ( became ill the week of Viola's birth. We struggled through three months of treatment, some up and downs, but eventually had to make the decision to let Alexis go. Viola was very special because she arrived at the right time, and she looks remarkably like Alexis. In fact we almost named her Alexandra, but we wanted her to have her own identity and be her own self. 

Viola is seriously smart, and learns little "tricks" often like the basic obedience stuff, "talk", "up" (which I can only describe as dancing like a circus dog), it goes on and on. She's very patient and sweet with the other dogs, including her sister Rini's puppies from 2010, who she helped clean and babysit. It's nice to see such strong maternal instincts. Her mother Juliet was also a fantastic mother to her puppies.

Viola with baby PippaViola was bred to our boy Blue, and gave birth to nine healthy puppies on March 21, 2013. From that litter we kept Sophie-Grace (Timbreblue Plays the Princess). We were delighted to see that Viola passed on her father Justin's beauty along with her own sweetness and intelligence. Viola is currently retired from our breeding program, but she is still the very best auntie to our young puppies. She just adores puppies and is incredibly patient and affectionate with them. She's a very special girl!
