Meet the Bobby Bonds of Whippets

Meet Wendy.
She was born with a genetic defect which has left her looking like the Incredible Hulk Bobby Barry Bonds of Hounds.
She weighs 4st4lb (60 pounds)- twice as much as she should - and has bulging neck muscles, burly shoulders and haunches like a baboon. And unlike ordinary whippets known for their lithe and narrow frame, this four-year-old pedigree doesn't just have a six-pack stomach, she has a 24-pack.

"I thought they did steroid tests for these events. Damn."

np...had to google Bobby Bonds to make sure you weren't talkin about a body builder...lol
btw...i can't figure out the front paws on that dog....bothering the hell outta me, her front is so much lower than her rear, almost as if her front legs are way shorter.
