when you live in the twigs and work 50kms away it can be a long, cold and lonely day for a whippet baby to wait for her parents to return home. that's why mabel goes to 'school'. when she first came to live with us she used to spend the day at a kennel in lower longley. lovely leanne was fabulous and mabes still stays with her if we go away overnight. more recently she has been attending club canine in hobart. bb & i find a lot of comfort in the fact she is spending her days with other puppies in a safe, warm and fun environment - plus she loves it.
