Biski waiting for her companion...

I’m Shira Boss, a writer in New York who with my partner, Bob, has three wonderful whippets. We got our first, C-Biscuit, in May 2008, from C.Square Whippets in the Catskills. Immediately we wanted to get her a companion – Sesame! – but were told to wait a year.

We started a savings account for Sesame because it turns out dogs are very expensive, especially when you spoil them like we like to!

A year after we got C-Biscuit, we got our second dog, Machu Picchu, who is from the same breeder but came via Whippet Rescue.

We hadn’t planned on a third, but when we went to meet Picchu, we fell in love with a 2-year-old boy. We got him 3 months later, and he’s our Sesame! 

Sesame, all grown up and ready to come home!

I started the blog because my background is in personal finance writing and I wanted to chronicle the cost of having dogs. Now, the site is about the adventures of our 3 “Real House Whippets of New York City” as well as dog care and pet spending.
