I've got a huge soft spot for sighthounds. My brother had to euthanize his rescued greyhound last year due to a brain tumor that affected her hind end. She was a beautiful, sweetheart of a girl.
I haven't seen a saluki in a long time until recently. Two weekends ago my dog food store had a party and a 1 year old Saluki showed up. He had a blast playing with my old man Poseidon. There used to be a Saluki show at the Kentucky Horse Park that ran alongside the horse show I attended every year, and I always made sure to go watch the Salukis when I wasn't watching one of my horses in the ring. Such elegant elegant dogs.
