  1. They loooove to play together! Bella and Sappho by Amy Atherton, on Flickr Sappho and Bella by Amy Atherton, on Flickr Sappho and Bella by Amy Atherton, on Flickr Sappho and Bella by Amy Atherton, on Flickr

  3. Sappho's realised that actually Bella is a whole lot of fun. :D It's fab to see them getting along so well; I've been dreaming of this for Bella for so many years. Happy saluki mum!

  4. Today the girls had their first beach visit together! So much fun; they loved it.

  5. The girls are doing great! Bella has had very mixed feelings; loving the new playmate, but adjusting to no longer being the only child. She's definitely adjusting really well, though, and is becoming much more tolerant. Bel and Sappho are playing together more and more. Bella and Sappho by Amy Atherton, on Flickr Sappho was very nervous of Bella's rowdy play style for about a week, but she's now realised that Bella's all bluster and no bite. We're pretty sure Sappho's going to be the one in charge soon enough. Sappho and Bella by Amy Atherton, on Flickr Bella
  6. I'm now a smooth saluki convert! The smooth coat really shows off their athleticism; even at her young age, Sappho is looking so muscular. It's a shame the good old days of the sighthound thread have passed; I have very fond memories of watching Alyosha's first litter grow up on here, and meeting my first saluki friends when I first got Bella. It is nice, though, that there are still a few of us kicking around. Diva, your property looks absolutely gorgeous. You have some extremely lucky hounds!
  7. Reviving the sighthound thread, because they deserve some love. A week ago, I became a saluki mum for the second time, welcoming Grantulla Rhea 'Sappho' to the family. She's about fourteen weeks old, and has a massive hold on our hearts already. Today she had her very first proper play with Bella, after several days of being a bit intimidated by her boisterousness. Obviously, we're supervising carefully, but Sappho's really warming to her new big sis. Sappho by Amy Atherton, on Flickr Sappho by Amy Atherton, on Flickr Sappho by Amy Atherton, on Flickr
  8. Not quite bomb-proof yet, but we'll get there. She was a bit fretful; sleeping in a crate isn't going to happen quite yet-- she ended up on our bed last night. Going to try a different solution tonight. Eating and peeing well, and we've had some great old plays together.

  9. Got the camera out! It's wild and cold and horrible, so just a couple of indoor shots for now. Sappho by Amy Atherton, on Flickr Sappho by Amy Atherton, on Flickr
  10. Yes, no feathering. No coat is similar to a greyhound. I think there are only a few breeders with smooths in Australia right now.
  11. Just a few crummy phone pictures because she's gorgeous.... Meet Sappho (Grantulla Rhea), our newest family member, a thirteen week old smooth saluki girl! how old is a betta fish when you buy it
  12. I don't know how I'm going to sleep tonight-- puppy is arriving tomorrow afternoon! Prepare for photos incoming....
  13. My first dog was our family pet, Tiggy, our golden who we had while I was between the ages of eight and fifteen. Tiggy by Amy Atherton, on Flickr
  14. Oh, he's gorgeous! I love his name!
  15. Well, this thread would soon be better titled 'The Adventures of Bella AND Sappho Saluki'. We're now waiting on flights to be arranged from Victoria for our beautiful 12-week-old smooth saluki girl! Ecstatic and excited! We're hoping to get into showing and lure coursing with little Sappho (Grantulla Rhea). Prepare for a puppy photo spam!
