    Is it ironic that it is the Whippet breed that has this genetic defect? I have seen a picture of at least one other Whippet with this condition. I hope they are not uncomfortable with all that bulk.

    One idiot says "I hope she can breed because I would love a dog like that"

    What a jack@**..why would someone purposely want to breed a dog with a defect that has an effect on the quality and length of life??

    Thats just plain crazy, but doesn't some humans also have that defect? I think it's called myostatin deficiency.
