What a cutie with that regal colar!
From the pic, Barney looks little, or the bear is REALLY big Is there a difference between whippets and italian greyhounds? Sorry, I'm not a "dog person"

Barney is actually a little over size for an italian greyhound. IG's are bred down from full sized greyhounds. Whippets although similar in appearance are larger than IG's.

As for the collar, I actually made that one....used to make them for all my sighthounds. I dug that one out of the closet, it had been made to fit a basenji many years ago.

Totally off topic, but what is your opinion on Basenjis?? My fiance and I will one day get a dog....when we aren't renting. I met a Basenji and then researched the breed and spoke with a dog trainer, but she wasn't wild about them. I think it was due to stubbornness. I will always have cats and my fiance wants a dog to go on hikes with him (preferably one that can hold it's own pack ). Personally, I want a smallish dog that's not noisy and likes to be around people.

Basenji's are a wonderful breed. As with all sighthounds, they can be stand offish to strangers, but are great with their own family. Trainers dont like sighthounds as a general rule as they take to training like a cat would. Not saying they are not intelligent, in fact, the opposite holds true. They are extremely intelligent and can outwit alot of owners. Once something is learned, it does stay learned. The key is getting the animal to accept the training without it knowing it is being trained ...like a kid watching sesame street I guess
