    Red face Tallulah and Roger

    More gorgeous photos of my adorable kids (well, hopefully will be mine in 1 week and 2 days!)

    They are both polite, well-behaved, cuddly and loving - and absolute babies!

    I am "sold" on Greyhounds as loving companions!

    For those of you who wanted more doggies pix, check out the latest on my public FB link: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?ai...1&l=084aac504b

    Cheers,

    Vickie

    Hi, lovely to see the greys settling in so well and nice to meet another fellow hound lover, though mine are of the slightly smaller type - whippets.

    Hi Mouseandchicken!

    They are taking to the "good life" very well, with long walks every morning, shorter ones at night, lots of good, healthy food, heaps of hugs, kisses, cuddles and massages!

    They are absolute babies and follow me around everywhere!

    What are whippets like?

    Hi love my hounds.

    I'm so glad they have settled in well. I've had a few foster greyhounds and can't speak highly enough about these guys as pets. They are very similar to my breed- borzoi - in temperament. I love how easy they are to live with.

    Whippets are very similar with just a bit more zip.

    Like greys they enjoy the good life and comfort is essential. But I find them very easy to live with.

    I have 6 dogs 5 of which are whippets two of which are 12 week old puppies. They are so clean, easy to house train, though wet weather can test that a bit for the youngsters.

    My puppies sit next to me on the lounge from about 7:30pm right thru to about 11pm when they are put to bed. I find even as puppies they settle quickly and mature quite early making them easy to live with. They are not a dog that you have to be careful of taking over the place even when you give them such liberties as sleeping on beds or lounges.

    It always surprises me that with our busy lifestyles these days that the Greyhound is not more popular as a pet.

    I'm very fond of all the sight hounds.

    Oh Natty I do love the Borzoi.

    I'm thinking that will be my next big dog after Gemma because I do love to raise the Puppets around a large dog. Even all the other puppy owners have noticed it's made a huge difference, their puppies were not scared of big puppies at puppy pre-school etc like some of the other puppies were.

    It will be a while as Gemma is only 4 but I think I'm leaning more Borzoi rather than Saluki, the only Saluki that I know personally is a real queen, very laid back, not a fence jumper/escape artist or any thing like what I hear about many Saluki.

    I was picking the Saluki over the Borzoi because of the coat, as we have lots of bush and burs etc here, but I do like the Greyhound temp.

    Hmmm, just as well I've got years to decide as all the sight hounds are so lovely.

    She must be a treasure indeed! I have found the salukis very high maintenance. VERY difficult to contain indeed, and near impossible to keep weight on as they are high energy and picky eaters... I find them very exhausting to live with - the opposite of the greys and 'zoi. I've even had afghans and the salukis have been more full on than them!

    Coat-wise, it depends if you're showing your saluki. They need constant stripping etc. I wash and brush the 'zoi before a show - they look more impressive coat-wise but they're easier!

    Female borzoi blow their complete coat (minus fringes) twice a year which is like a hair storm for a week. But males don't, a little seasonal drop in early summer is about all. Desexed girls keep their coat.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not anti-saluki! They're just too much for me personally!


    ETA - sorry, got off track there!! Love my hounds, thanks so much for the pics - I love them on your fantastic colourful lounge, it looks like just what your couch needed was a gorgeous pair like them!
