Advent of whippets in Advent

I had not intended to take in any further dogs this year. Then I heard that Scruples Whippet Rescue (which is not a rescue for which I usually foster) suddenly had a pair of whippets urgently needing a foster home.   Their owners have emigrated, and they have had a bit of a nightmare time being passed round like a pair of whippety parcels to people who seem to have been a bit clueless about what to expect from a pair of sighthounds (ie, chasing and pulling on lead if they see something chaseable).
