The Whippet first appeared in England from carefully selected crosses of small English greyhounds and certain terriers. The "Snap Dog" was a favourite of Welsh coal miners who relied on their pets to capture fresh meat for the dinner table. The breed's distinct advantages in its swiftness, quietness… and earlier small size did not go unnoticed by poachers who would hide the Whippet under their coats away from the warden's suspicious eye and then sneak them onto the king's grounds to hunt. The miners first began competitive racing with the Whippet, dubbing it "The Poor Man's Race Horse." An entire week's wages might ride on the speed of the family hearth dog. A fast dog then was money in the pocket and special pride to the one who owned him. They were imported into Ireland not long after were a rich tradition of going to the dog track races still exists today. These links may help you to understand more about the whippet and the racing it does. http://www.thepetprofessor.com/breed_profiles/dogs/whippet.aspx http://www.sonic.net/~whippet/origins.HTML http://www.whippetview.com/history/scrapbook11.HTML ( Full Answer )

Would a dog that is a mix of lab terrier Jack Russell and whippet or Italian greyhound be safe for a person with allergies?
Answer . I am sorry to say but 'no'. It's not the fur, but the pet dander off the skin of the dog. There is no breed of dogs or cats that a person with extremely bad allergies can have around.. I have an Asian girlfriend (Asians seem to have terrible allergies) and her and her husband own a Bord…er Collie (he sheds to) and she takes an antihistamine if the dog is in the house. She was doing this for about 2 years and suddenly she seemed to get over the allergy towards the dog. ( Full Answer )

It depends on what engine is in it, what gears is in it etc... theres too many factors
depends completely on the cars aerodynamic setup, gear ratios, ect. The highest recorded speed however of an F1 car was by the 2005 Honda F1 car which reached a flash reading of 400km/h at Bonneville however because it could not reach it on the way back its official speed record 397km/h. The quickes…t F1 car speed of the 2011 season was 350km/h by Sergio Perez at Monza though on average the top speed of an F1 car at an average circuit would be around 315km/h ( Full Answer )
Depends on the powertrain- a 1.5/manual will be faster than a 1.0/automatic.. 1.3 version can be 165-175km/h in manufacturer data(my previous generation Yaris 1.3 with CVT,Japanese version proved to reach more than 190km/h,closer to 200km/h,if its limiter removed).. If it is a well loosen-up examp…le, it can reach 190-200km/h bracket.. 1.5 version is said to have 190km/h top speed according to manufacturer data, if it is well loosen-up example and has no limiter it can go up to 210km/h(131mph).. 1.0 version has 150-155km/h manufacturer data, well run-in example can reach around 160km/h.

We need to know what kind of 250 your talking about, 2 wheel, 3 wheel, 4 wheel, for dirt, for street, be more specific with make, model, and re-post. In the mean time check out this site: . http://www.topspeed.com/motorcycles/motorcycle-reviews/yamaha/index167.html . 111mph
Well it really depends on what size of dirt bike you get. For example: if you get a 50cc bike it will mabe go 20mph, but if you get a 450 it could go from 50 to 60 mph. so to get a definite answer go to your dirt bike companies website, and look at the bikes facts.
Cars are designed to have a top speed for safety reasons. An engine can only spin at so many RPMs before things start to fly off or destroy themselves. The same holds true for the rest of the moving parts on a car. Tires can only handle so many RPMs before the rubber starts to come apart. The faster… things spin the greater the centrifical force.

No, a Whippet is much larger than an Italian Greyhound which is like a mini Greyhound. Whippets look more like Greyhounds only Whippets are larger.
Whippets were originally bred for catching rabbits. Later for both this and racing and lure-coursing. These days, the catching rabbits is frowned upon, so lure-coursing and racing have taken its place for the most part. We can say now, that the breed is bred to run in general. They love to run and a…re the fastest in excelleration and cornering, as well as one of the fasted in top-speed in general. The result of them being bred for performance has led to a healthy breed that can live a very long life if they avoid bad running accidents. ( Full Answer )
In my experience whippets tend to be more quiet and shy and can lack the confidence that guarding breeds can have.
The best place to get a Whippet is from a reputable breeder or from a Whippet rescue organization. For the rescues, do a web search. For the breeders, you can do the same, or go to: thewhippetarchives.net . There you can find your country, then click on breeders till you find one that has a website …listed. It may take you a while to get the hang of the site because its true purpose is a geneological database for the breed. But it has to be the site with the most info. But if you want an easy way, do a web-search with the keywords "whippet breeders in , links". Its a great breed. ( Full Answer )

Most people who drive the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Spyderinvariably come away depressed, thinking the same thing: With 552hp, a 0-to-60-mph time of about 3.5 seconds, and a claimed topspeed of 201 mph , this thing is too slow. Lamborghini getsit.
With stock gearing it is around 131 mph according to the speedometer. There is a 3-7% variance in the speedometer.
1000 mph to 3000 or it will explode in your face and you will die or get very very hurt !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A whippet gun is a Browning Auto , or a Remington model 11, cut down ( so that it still operates) Both the barrel, and Stock are shortened. See related link for more info.
V8 auto 140 (not Hardly. I pull 160 mph top speed in an auto tyvm) manual 156 V6 auto 115 Manual 115
If you are talking about stock(meaning no modifications), the highest for me was 143 mph. If you add some modifications then it can go up to over 160 depending on how many horsepower it has after the mod.
You can change the differential gear ratio but you will sacrifice quickness on the lower end unless you have sufficient horsepower.

The Standered Exige has a top speed of 150mph however i own an Exige S 260 sport and have had it at 165 at a local track
"Officially" 168MPH (stock CBR600RR). It really depends on the bike condition and the size of the rider though.
It depends on the age and personality. If the whippet is territoriol if the cat came into his area they would most likely be a stand off. However when the whippet goes into the cat territory they will usually follow the cat and not make a move unless the cat runs. But if you get your whippet as a pu…ppy and you cat as a kitten they may grow up together and become friends. ( Full Answer )

Whippet racing is the same as greyhound racing, only with whippets. this is not racing for money, like some people do with greyhounds, but it is mostly for fun. the dogs are put in the trap, which is a metal box with bars at the front. when they are let out, they chase the luar, the dog who is first… wins the race. some people do whippet racing for a hobby.

Which dog would be better would depend on the family situation. Both Staffies and Whippets are generally considered to be good family pets and both make good companion dogs. Staffies are sometimes called "nanny dogs" as they are known to be very fond of children and since they are quite hardy and bu…tch, more so than Whippets, it is not easy for children to hurt them and therefore they tend to be more patient around children. However, Whippets generally get along better with other dogs, so it could be a better choice if there are already other dogs in the family. Having said that, if a Staffie is properly socialised with other dogs from a young age, it will also get along with other dogs. At the end of the day it depends on how you raise the dog as that will determine whether the dog makes a good family pet or not. ( Full Answer )
I would choose a whippet. They are usually quiet dogs and can give you lots of time out of the house to be together. They can be very easy to train too. I would know for I have a whippet my self. They can be frightened of very young children if you don't introduce them properly. Give it some time an…d you'll eventually fall in love with the whippet. ( Full Answer )
Depending on how effectively you can whippet, you may feel a sort of dark warmth envelope your noggin. You may hear military-grade helicopters hovering right above you. Your junk gets numb, or 'tingly' or whathaveyou. And then you exhale and that's pretty much it. And don't forget the oxygen! Unless… you want blue lips that is. To add, if you've never done a whippet, here's a few tips that may help you decide if it's for you. The real danger: if you do inhale, sit up right. Never lay down while you inhale, you could freeze your lungs. Do not do more then 3 co2 containers in a row. You deprive your brain of o2 with each inhale of co2. That's why you trip. For some reason, if your with a friend blowin up on whippets, you get kind of greedy over the co2 containers. Brain cells do die with each inhale of a whippet. So don't make it a daily event. It can cause you to sez, drupe, unknowingly pass out. So be aware of your surroundings. The trip only lasts about a minute, but the best way to explain the trip is like this. If you've done Ex, it's like the climax of blowing up suppressed in 60 seconds! ( Full Answer )
The exact answer is unknown. It is thought to be related to the 16th century term "whip it", meaning "move fast". "Whippet" originally applied to a greyhound-spaniel mix; not the dog that we now call a "whippet".
WOW! Yes they are!! They dont shed hairs, they are very clean animals and don't roll in poo or on purpose get dirty!
Hello there! if your female whippet has traits of a whippet she may be classified as a quarter or even less. when dogs are mated they don't necessarily have to be two pedigree dogs. one dog may have traits of lab for example. check this with your vet they may have more sufficent theories than myself… ( Full Answer )
whippets are very adaptable indeed! i have a whippet x myself and she sleeps in the house and in my bedroom. Some owners however decide that they would prefer the dog to live in a kennel. this could be due to health and allergic reactions anything. they are great on the move too, they sleep in their… beds and don't bark or cause any disruption when driving. they are the perfect dogs. they also do actually love the countryside that is where they were first bred, they can run for miles and have the stamina of an ox. ( Full Answer )
yes. the only concern would be near busy main roads and surrounding places where your whippet may come out of sight of you. if you don't do that and let your dog run on a pavement adjacent to a busy major road, then chances are your whippet will speed off into the tracks of a vehicle. if the whippet… is a young puppy train the dog to walk senisbly and teach it the places that are safe to be off the leash. ( Full Answer )
Yes I suppose, they can be tricky to train though and you must not be rough with them as they are very sensitive. They are also quite reserved with strangers and can sometimes have trust issues with non-canine pets, but they are low maintenance, sweet affectionate dogs as long as you keep them exerc…ised and are friendly with other canines.

My whippet loved Iams mixed with some fresh meat. She also was particularly fond of chicken jerky strips. Generally, you feed a whippet a diet rich in protein. My whippet also received omega 3/6 supplements and a multivitamin every other day. She was beautiful, lean and fast.
\n \nnearly 3 and a half km/h \n. ++ \n. I think there's a 0 missing there, or a mistaken conversion. 3.5km/hr is slow walking-speed!
I depends I have a whippet who is knee hight and is easy in the car and is small but can get a bit excited (he is young though) but grey hounds are very docile but and big and are diffiult to move (in the car wouldn't fit very well on the back seat) and cn intimidate youngsters.
The Whippet is a dog which origins come from England. These dogs are relatives to the greyhound family. They are have a friendly demeanor and are very lean and muscular in nature.
