Default Silken Windhounds & Long Haired Whippets

Can the owners of these two breeds tell me a bit about them? I know that's super open ended but I really would just like an overview of them since I don't know a ton other than I adore how they look.

LHW are like whippets. Happy bouncy and a bit terrierish. Silkens are more like Zoi, more dignified and aloof.

I love the look of those breeds too. Very aesthetically pleasing

Logan thinks Silkens are sexy, even if they're boys and neutered. That's all I really know. We were crated next to a silken at our last dog show and HOLY CRAP THE FLIRTS.

I have a major breed crush on both of those breeds. Possibly more towards the SWH today. Tomorrow I might like the LHW more. I don't think I'd be a good sighthound owner and the husband doesn't like the look of sighthounds, but I luffs them. Luffs them lots.

Whippets are amazing and you need one or five so I can live vicariously through you. My dream is to have a SHW and a LHW. I'm 99.999999% sure my next dog will be a whippet, but I'm not sure whether it will be LH or SH.

Interested in hearing about them too. I have a Silken crush and there is nothing I would like more than to be surrounded by a pack of nutty whippets.

I have a question for you guys. I know greyhounds are prone to bloat, are Silkens and Whippets as well?
