"Useable but keep it hidden from your relatives?" LOLOLOL! Then when the Relatives leave, one can "whippit" out? blink.gif

Whippets are similar looking to greyhounds, but smaller. Whippets were once called "the poor man's greyhound". They were also bred to race. Weighs approx 25 lbs. Greyhounds are much larger at 60-70 lbs...mine is a big boy at 82 lbs.

If you think whippets need food, you must see Italian Greyhounds. Talk about a dog needing meat on its bones! Worse yet, they are known to shake often. They look like a mini greyhound. Weighs under 10 lbs.

I often thought about owing a greyhound, whippet, and Italian greyhound at the same time! I'd have big, medium, and small. laugh.gif Greyhounds get a lot of attention on their own.

Greyhound, that's really interesting about all these different types of Greygrounds, I feel bad for those dogs that shake, awwwwww.

Why would you start an argument. Everything said has been so funny! Michele cracked me up with her comments about those Junk Solids, Martha cracked me up with her comments about Kilts, and the list goes on! biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

Hello Greyhound, you haven't stirred anything up! Just discussing Solids and interpretations of various words. This is really useful so we all know where we stand when being duped!

If we didn't express ourselves, no-one would be any the wiser and we would be the losers. This way, we see what is going on!

I was lucky to find the Roulette Wheel from one of our friends on the site! Can you imagine if I would have gone full steam ahead and bought it from Ebay only to discover the mistakes afterwards? Too late then! Good money down the drain!

So please don't hide in the bushes ph34r.gif think you know me well enough by now to understand that should I disagree with an interpretation of something, I will always come back to discuss! Yes, DISCUSS, not (argue)!

Enjoy the long week-end.......

Hi Greyhound -

You haven't stirred anything up...hey, I learned a lot from you by just reading your post. The only experience I've had with greyhounds happened about 10 years ago. I was visiting my Dad in Wisconsin when he said he wanted to take me to the races. Thinking it was horse races, I said ok. When we got there, I found out it was DOG races, and I was horrified. Wanted to leave immediately! To me, that is so cruel. But, he explained they had an adoption agency on the premises and not to worry. So, I talked to the people and they showed me around the area where the "back-up" race dogs are kept. Each had his own little housie, with central air, plenty of food, water, etc. I was still not happy, so when the race started, I told my Dad I was going to the clubhouse to get a bite to eat. I found my way to the "dog center" and proceeded to set the doggies free by opening each of the doors on their little houses. Needless to say, they didn't get very far, and I was "held" in the clubhouse by Security until my Dad explained my feelings to them, at which time we were escorted out of the Race Track. I believe he was banned for life if he had me with him.

Anyway, I did find out that they are beautiful dogs...very gentle and loving. That's why when I saw this "Whippet" I thought of you and how a solid could possibly be made using the shape of a Greyhound.

Your description of Whippets, Italian Greyhounds (poor things) and regular Greyhounds was extremely informative and I hope you keep posting...about them and anything else you're interested in. Hey, there's more to life than solids. We all have a lot to share with each other...that's the only way to grow. And believe me, solids will always work their way into almost every post! smile.gif

Hope to see you here more often. Please don't hide...you are missed. sad.gif

Wow I am glad I read this set of postings because I was considering bidding on that cat. I like having variations on things, but obviously only the ones that were really made by EL and not doctored up. People SHOULD NOT play doctor with these lovely solids. wink.gif

Now that I think of it, that panda a while ago without its enamel that was listed as a 'prototype' could have just been a doctored solid too. Right?

Maybe there should be a section on this site with such warnings?

But wait, how did the subject turn into greyhounds? I have poodles and they are cool too ...

NEWSFLASH!

The Seller of the Peas in Pod just sent me another e-mail (she sent me one yesterday with 3 more pictures of that Compact).

Anyway, after I explained to her that when a Compact is missing crystals, any enamel work, Peas, and if any parts of the compact are broken, it is NOT considered Mint.

She just answered me and told me that from now on, she will NOT put Mint in her Descriptions. Just thought I would let everyone know.

Denise, that's good to hear. Sellers who do not know what they're doing often say "mint" (assuming their not trying to deceive). Buyers beware.

Lmsw1, the panda was NOT doctored. I know this for a fact.

You also have to read the fine print. I just saw an America the Beautiful compact that looked mint in the picture but when reading the description it said two of the enamel stripes were silver (missing). I don't know too much about dogs but we have a really beautiful greyhound that lives behind us. It's white with brown. Very sleek looking.

This is quite a topic. I've stayed away from ebay for a couple of months, self-imposed exile. tongue.gif I checked out the roulette wheel. What a joke!
I see the seller is from the east coast. Maybe she/he marauds through the manufacturers dumpsters after hours ph34r.gif ohmy.gif
Looks like the seller had to fight to get the roulette wheel. It's broken and twisted. blink.gif
I checked out her page that gives the buyers names and some "heavy hitter" collectors have purchased solids. Sooooo...............I say if you want it and it looks good to you go for it. biggrin.gif
Too bad he/she doesn't have the TUTU or the Pink Tele. I might come out of exile.
I do agree these solids should not be advertised as Mint. Because as we ALL know that is not TRUE!!
Denise, that was a kindness you showed telling the seller wub.gif
You all are to much fun! Thanks for the links to these "beauties"
Bye, KK biggrin.gif

Hi Everyone,

I have just returned from our Family Easter Egg hunt.....accompanied by our family dogs.....one of which is whippet... Georgie!! She is gorgeous...way to heavy for a whippet (watches the floor for any crumbs that might come her way)...and just loves to be loved!! When she was adopted she had been abused and was very unsure. That was 7yrs ago and she is much better now, thanks to a lot of love and patience.

Thank you Greyhound for explaining the difference in the two breeds. Glad to see you on the board! biggrin.gif

Mimi

Never mind the headless mermaid, what about the fact that he/she told Denise they wouldn't say mint if it wasn't! Have you seen the Teapot....."Mint for what it is" mad.gif Honestly, what does that mean??????????? mad.gif

Hi Michele, you'll need to teach me how to do those great links you do.
