Weekly Wag

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

I should have announced this a few weeks ago. After Henrietta moved back home to London (we miss you Henrietta!), the board has filled the vacancy left behind with Jennie Cohen. Jennie had been working with Henrietta over much of 2017 on the team blog and Instagram accounts, so it should make for a pretty seamless transition. The board wishes to express our deep gratitude to Henrietta for all the work she has put in over the years to making the team a success!
