Champion Bohem C’est La, aka Vivi, the whippet that escaped from her crate at the JFK airport right after the Westminster dog show, has been spotted in Flushing. More than once.
There’s now a Newsday blog dedicated to all things Vivi. It’s got some interesting information, including why they can’t use a tranquilizer gun to catch her (low stores of body fat on this breed make her potentially too sensitive to barbituates — unlike coyotes!) and why a sight hound on the run may be harder to catch than a dog of another breed.
