Life of a Whippet

I am the one who lives to run

I donít stop till the chase is done

Coming out on top makes me number one

 

To many, Iím considered a sighthound

But donít think of me as a greyhound

Iím a whippet, this makes me different all around

 

My motto is that I live for today

My elegance impresses, to everyoneís dismay

One of my favorite things to do is to instigate play

 

My appearance seems to be very fragile

In fact you can see that I am actively agile

At times, Iím considered a canine projectile

 

My body is shaped to be aerodynamic

All of my curves make me geometric

My strength and speed make me electric

 

The coat that I have is very colorful

Dark to brindle, my looks can be an eyeful

My artistic appearance is outright undeniable

 

At times Iím finicky, but I love to eat

After a hearty meal, I head for the nearest sofa seat

Later awakened from a nap, I jump quickly to my feet

 

I consider myself head of the household

Many times I donít obey and do as Iím told

But escape reprimand because my looks are good as gold

 

I am loyal to one master only

A thought of being with another is not to be

 My master and his family will always be treasured by me
