I agree too much tum, but as for not enough dog? Nuts, she's a monster dog, best companion I could wish for.

I'm daft and proud of it.

Didn't you have to go get your knee looked at a while ago, I don't recall the outcome?

And don't you start. You know how fragile I am.

Anyway, it's just good parenting, providing a comfortable pillow for my babe.

I'm daft and proud of it.

'Ello, Kev, about 2 weeks ago, after a wait of nearly 2 years, I was given an injection in my thigh which has helped considerably. Don't know how long it will last though. Hopefully I will be able to be more active and reduce the size of Ellie's crash pad!

I hope that if it is good then you can have repeats as and when it wears off.

Oh yeah, and I'm sorry about the tatty evening wear in the photo above, my purple silk lounging pyjamas were in the wash.

Currently we have a cross Staffie/Whippet - she has attached herself to me in spite of swmbo being the food supplier. Loving, great with kids and horrible with other dogs. She seems to think that any dog that comes near is dangerous and the best form of defence is attack. I have had her to Dog obedience, where she was used as a training tool to show how close you could get to an angry dog (didn't stay there very long) and then one on one training with a chap who kept falling in and out of depression / alcoholism, didn't last long either., Now I just keep an eye, and don't walk her near other dogs.
Previous dogs have been wonderful companions. We had a lovely collie / sheepdog cross who was admired by someone from the Welsh version of the kennel club who said she was the best example of a Welsh Mountain Collie he had ever seen and why weren't we exhibiting her? When I pointed out she was a mongrel he actually got angry!
Wouldn't think of having a pure breed - too many health problems for me. They suit a lot of people though, so each to his (or her, or gender neutral) own.

You appear to be just feeding her anxieties by keeping her away from other dogs. Don't expect miracles quickly, we have 3 dogs, all rescues. They are 2 Whippets and a Jack Russell. The Whippet dog came to us with his half Sister. He was extremely aggressive (and covered in scars from dog bites) and she was a complete nervous wreck.


With your Whippet Cross I would first of all recommend that you stop being anxious when out with your dog. Keep calm and walk it on a longish loose lead to build up a bit of confidence (the same daily routine helps a lot at first). The next step is to stop and chat to other dog walkers at a distance at first (obviously ). We did this with the 2 Whippets and found slowly getting closer to other dogs gradually was the best single strategy that worked although it took around a year before we could regard their behaviour as close to normal. Your dog seems to be fearful and that can be reduced but takes a very long time to reduce to almost none because dogs have long memories. In our case the Whippet Bitch collapsed and died from an Aneurysm after having her for 18 months. At least she had some happiness towards the end of her short life. After nearly 3 years of ownership, the Whippet dog is 100% trustworthy, in fact he is the opposite of aggressive now. There must have been some bad men in their lives because he has only become close to me in the last 6 months. Today he has been on a 'Whippet Walk' with around 30 other Whippets and loved it, as did our latest rescue Whippet who was very nervous when we got her (having never been out of the garden or socialised at 18 months old). She only took 3 months to socialise and adapt to normal Whippet life.


Good luck, you will get there.
