Iggys And Whippets

Guest Okie

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new here.

We recently lost our beloved grey, Okie. He was the most gentle, kind grey I have ever met. In fact, I had said to my husband that if anything ever happened to him that I didn't think I'd want another b/c we'd compare the other...

Anyway, we also have an Iggy and a whippet. They are wonderful too. Our whippet, Jellybean (we didn't name her), is beside herself. She's definitely depressed. Thankfully we have our Iggy and we didn't have her as long for her to really know him and cling to him. However she is clinging to Jelly a lot.


Anyway, I wanted to keep in touch with the greyhound family and knew we'd find comfort in being able to find friends online with IG and whippets.

I am sorry for the loss of your grey. My first dog I ever got once I got my own place was an IG. When she died, we bought a whippet, who we absolutely adored and who passed away in July at age 11. Last yr, we got our first GH, and we have truly loved our greyhound. We hope to adopt a 2nd GH soon.

I'm so sorry for your loss of Okie.


We have a greyhound and 2 whippets here. After we lost our first greyhound, it did take us awhile, but we adopted another and because they were so different in personality, I didn't find myself comparing the two. The same thing happened when we lost our first whippet. The two whippet girls we have now are totally different than Piper was, but I enjoy their personalities as much as I enjoyed his. :)
