Whippet Profile

By Darren M. Grine










I am a small and speedy sighthound

A coursing event is where I can be found

Iím so fast that I donít even make a sound


I appear frail, but actually Iím quite sturdy

If you clock me I will be doing well over thirty

 Routinely Iím bathed and groomed so I donít get dirty


At times I might either bark or growl

If I donít get my way I will show my scowl

Iím a whippet so I donít believe in throwing in the towel


Iím known to keep everyone on their toes

I play with reckless abandon so anything goes

Not paying attention to me will add to your woes


I like to find a good place to lie in the sun

After a restful nap I go looking for some fun

Raising chaos and then settling down is when Iím done


I enjoy wallowing in the limelight

Prancing and dancing to everyoneís delight

This is part of my show that shines so bright


Even though I look like Iím maintenance free

I expect to be waited on in the highest degree

Living the high life is the luxurious lifestyle for me


Sometimes Iím compared to a king or a queen

I am catered to like any other royalty has ever seen

 I would rule the whole world and everything in between


My distinguished life can cause a rile

But I get away with everything all the while

If youíre wondering, this is my whippet profile
