I noticed their synchronized whippet running from the beginning. It was shortly after Luke became a part of our family. I’d throw a toy and watch him and Milo run and play together with it. They moved the same for both short and long moments. One day I finally caught it on camera:
See how their front paws are the same? It’s so cool (or at least I think so). Anyway, as time went by I kept trying to capture it. Photographing whippets running is difficult. They can run up to 35 mph. I don’t know if they get that fast in my backyard though. It’s a good sized yard yet not a long wide open field. Nevertheless, they are still very fast. It took learning a new setting on my camera to get photos that weren’t blurry.
Then one day I got lucky. Really lucky. I started taking photos with the speed setting and holding down the shutter release. The other difficult factor was keeping them in the photo because of how fast they run. I downloaded a batch of photos and saw this one:
Wow! How awesome to capture these two and their synchronized whippet running.

I got a new zoom lens for my Nikon camera. It’s much better for capturing the antics of these two whippets and their older brother. One day I got four more photos synchronized fun. First with feet open stride:
Then with feet closed stride:
Then from behind. Look at how their tails are curled toward each other. How cute!
Here they are with a little front paw high step while playing with a monkey toy:
On another day, I took this photo of them:
My hounds make me smile every day. Taking photos has never been so much fun. I can’t wait to get more photos of these two and their synchronized whippet running.
Update to add more photos and this video. Includes them actually running! I finally got a good video of them. YAY!
Apologies for the blurriness. Sometimes they are so fast and capturing it is a challenge.
Here they are high stepping with a donut toy:
