Weekly Wag

Welcome to this week’s edition of our weekly news and events roundup of all things Whippet-related.

We now have our singlets at Russ’s office. Please see here for information and make sure to RSVP and pay for the singlet before picking up so Russ won’t have to deal with cash! We are running out of some sizes (like women’s XS) and have reordered. Please let Russ know what size you want before you head over to pick them up. New singlets will be in soon!  http://www.meetup.com/dashing-whippets/events/222495243/
