Cooper our whippet meets his match

December 17th, in Orlando Resa, a male white-and-blonde whippet, bolted ahead of the competition to win the second-annual Fastest Dog USA competition. The three-year-old ran a 100-yard dash in 5.769 seconds or 35.45 miles per hour. That’s 0.5777 of a second faster than last year’s winner, Phelan.

That same day in December here in Pennekamp’s Grove Trail Cooper and his female whippet friend Piper raced.

Piper is ahead

Cooper & Piper had a great day of racing. Cooper has faster strides but Piper sure knows how to turn sharp corners on a dime. Piper was ahead of Cooper a lot of the time which really confused Cooper as no other dog can even keep up with him! Piper you go girl! They both had a lot of FUN!
