Puppies sleep a lot, but sleeping - or rather: snoozing - is a very important whippet activity, so it is also part of
Solo's training to be a proper whippet when he grows up. Besides, it's easier to take pictures of him when he's asleep, since
that's about the only time he will stay still!
Here he is "helping" me with my correspondence at the computer desk. He's a very snuggly whippet, just like his mama,
Dena continues to be a wonderful little mama to Solo. A gifted snoozer herself, you can see in the photo at left that
she is personally giving her son lessons in snuggling and snoozing. This is very important, since he doesn't have siblings
to make sleeping puppy piles with. Solo's cousins and Uncle Sal are also helping with his training in this area.
Below and below left are the nine week "stacked" photos of Solo. He wasn't quite as cooperative this time, possibly due
to the fact that he was really hungry (to which my fingers can attest!), and was much more interested in going after the treats
than in holding his feet still or keeping his head up to show the pretty crest in his neck. Oh, well! In the future, we'll
try to get more practice in and take photos at a time when he isn't starving to death. Poor little under-fed baby!
