I've upgraded all my photography gear and am now trying to get some serious practice in with the hope of developing my skills to do pet photography professionally. Obviously, Bella is going to be my g

Some photos of Bella, and a load of her gorgeous new friend who's moved in down the road. She's still a bit boisterous for young Bowie, but they're going to have regular playdates which will be great

Well, this thread would soon be better titled 'The Adventures of Bella AND Sappho Saluki'. :grimace:

We're now waiting on flights to be arranged from Victoria for our beautiful 12-week-old smooth saluki girl! :happydance:Ecstatic and excited! We're hoping to get into showing and lure coursing with little Sappho (Grantulla Rhea). Prepare for a puppy photo spam!

I didn’t realise there was a smooth type , so no feathers at all ? 

Yes, no feathering. No coat is similar to a greyhound. I think there are only a few breeders with smooths in Australia right now.

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.

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.

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.

We've had Sappho out and about a lot, and she's taking everything in her stride. Very proud saluki mum right now!
