Default Silken Windhounds

So I just got to meet my first silken. I'm totally smitten after coming home from getting some silken love (and toller puppy play and aussie and acd to boot!). She's so sweet and friendly and polite.

I was wondering what people knew about them? I knew we had a thread a while back so I'll have to look that up.

This dog is very calm and quiet and dignified. She's GORGEOUS. Absolutely stunning. She learnt really fast but was very methodical. The thing I loved was how cuddly and friendly she was but in a very polite way. She just melted into each persons' lap with ease and just seemed like an all around fantastic dog to have around.

Is that typical?

Want! Sounds exactly what I want in a dog! I need a houseful of sight hounds.

There are 3-4 that compete in agility up here and they really are just sweet dogs . They love everyone. They do pretty well in agility, but they are still sight hounds lol, sometimes they just decide that it's more fun to make their own course up.

It's a breed I am VERY interested, especially if I decide that a zoi is too large(which I don't think will happen ), but I haven't met any and don't know a whole lot about them.

I need to meet more sight hounds. I am in love with everything about their descriptions except the independent nature... I need to meet some to see just how "independent" they are.

I've wanted a sighthound since I was around 13 (beezers mostly) but never have really looked too into it because of the independence plus papillons. Might have to consider one way down the line. Seems like a great dog.

I am trying to convince Grace she needs one now. I am definitely considering one but it won't be for a couple dogs. Nextdog will be a crazy herder for agility.

This silken though is so cute and adorable. They're definitely starting to worm their way up my 'one day' list. She picks up tricks fast and has the cutest little mannerisms while shaping. I just adore it.

I would definitely not call her unaffectionate at all! She is incredibly affectionate and sweet with everyone. Very gentle about it and polite but she has no reserves about crawling into everyone's laps and getting pets.

We totally have to coordinate this!! I want litter mates! I don't think it'll be a next dog for me too, probably 1-2 dogs down.
