I have a friend who's a professional dog-sitter, either welcoming the dogs into his own home, or if there are other responsibilities (such as cats, chickens, small mammals, etc) moving into the host home for the duration. It can actually be really boring living in someone else's house for a week or so, so I'll suggest he makes vidoes of himself from now on! Skylar's a cutie, & very lucky to have such a dedicated care-giver.

I LOVE this dog. I wish Skylar were mine!

I sort of wish I had not watched that video as it made this elderly fellow weep. It just brought back so many wonderful memories of my own sweet lady whippet who passed away 3 years ago aged around 18. I rescued her when she was about 2.5 y.o.a. after she had been very badly abused and injured.
She behaved in exactly the same way as Skylar. She loved everyone and every other animal, wanted to play most of the time when not spread out in a chair or in my bed. She adored going for walks and enjoyed going camping where she could run free and play with small children (who she just about drowned with kisses) and other dogs.
Whippets are the best and I desperately miss her loving cuddles and kisses.

Hahahahahaha, it takes a lot of action to get a whippet to be tired, too funny!
