Janet says, “My dog is a whippet, related to the greyhound.  They are in the sighthound family and were used to chase prey and for racing.  They still race them.  I don't race Bentley as sometimes the dogs are injured racing and I wouldn't take a chance.  It doesn't happen often but still.....too much worry.”  “The whippets race for fun, there's no betting and they are all handled by their owners and are house dogs.  They get points towards field championships and titles to add to their AKC registration. Greyhounds and whippets come in all colors, some greyhounds are the same color as Bentley.  They have black, black and white, blue, brindles, cream and white to name a few of the colors. Bentley is fawn and white. Their top speed is around 37 miles per hour and at times they are airborne when running.”
