If I was a good blogger I’d start teasing that I have a big announcement to make, then two days later I’d vaguely mention a new addition to our family, then something about a future runner in the house, then eventually I’d reveal that we got ourselves a puppy. But I’m not a good blogger and I’m not into drawn out announcements with a twist, haha, not pregnant, just a puppy, gotcha.
So yeah, PUPPY! Whippet puppy! Future championship runner (no pressure)!
His registered kennel name needed to start with a V, and so we selected Vitesse, French for speed. Seemed fitting. His fun “call name” (see how I’m learning all the lingo) is even better. It started out as a joke and kind of stuck. I assume this is also how people name their children.
He’s adorable. He’s also very clever, and adorableness fades so the cleverness is a bonus. He’s hilariously uncoordinated and clumsy, but he still has that whippet speed. And at just 8 weeks is faster than me. I think he might also be mischievous, which means at some point I’ll probably need all new furniture.
