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.

Independent =\= unaffectionate.

More like independent = not needy.

Summit is the biggest schmooze at meet and greets. He just spends the whole time walking around and quietly standing in front of people waiting to be petted. But if they don't he just moves on, he doesn't stick his head under their hand and try to self pet.

I went out for an hour just now. Came home and Kili pretty much threw herself into my arms.

Hey I just saw this! I definitely definitely want a Silken and/or long haired Whippet at some time!

You, Grace (with Trent), and I should get litter mates or baby sight hounds at the same time!
