Weekly Wag

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

It was great to see everyone who came to the Golden Hammer Party last weekend!  Thanks so much to all of the party planners, including Kevin, Jennie, Matan, Ben (feel better!), Blaise, Branden Warders (thanks for subbing in and taking pictures!), Michael, Chris, and anyone else who helped out along the way!
