Do you know what's a beautiful animal? The longhaired whippet*. A dude on the subway had one today. It's too big a dog to put in a carrier and he just had the dog out walking, which I believe is illegal. But the dog was very chill.
I can't find a picture of a whippet online that looks like the dog I saw at all. It was mostly black (I think he/she had a diamond white spot on the ruff) and, of course, had long hair. Also: Williamsburg thin. You know, like a whippet: heroin chic.
*Insert joke about racing dogs that like classical music.
