Not to completely take over the thread but what are the differences between the LHW and silkens? I know their coats are different, but that's about it.

Silken Windhounds are a little bigger (from those that I have met) They have a double coat.. actually their coat is pretty much the same as a borzoi, their heads are very borzoi.. actually just think small borzoi and you will be pretty much bang on. They were created from whippet/long haired whippet and borzoi. (their gene pool is smaller)

I had a Whippet and she was wonderful. I had to place her when I got divorced, but she was a great companion for an elderly couple for 14 yrs.

There is a woman at the local agility trials with a few whippets and they are awesome workers, but like several have said, you've got to train them the right way!!
