Whippeticious and I agreed to start the official sight hounds thread from my oiginal whippet snippets hread. So post your photos of whippets, greyhounds, salukis, borzois, afghans, lurchers, long dogs and other sight hounds here.

Here are three photos of our two past and one current sight hounds.

This is Suki, our wonderful whippet saluki cross, who sadly passed away in June 2008. You can see her Life in Pictures on www.sooksooks.com (external link).

This is Faizal, a very big saluki greyhound cross, who we fostered back to health during the last four months of 2008.

This is Lola, our little whippet, who has been with us for about two months now.

I love Ozzy and the ball, both airborne.
I better start contributing.
This is Lily, I bred her but she's not mine anymore, although obviously we still see her, I also bred the other whippet who lives with her, Oscar.
Lily is a water baby, this taken with my crappy 75-300 non IS

It was never going to be sharp, I had to shoot at 1.4 and ISO 1600 with my 400D but I like it anyway, this is Puck, trying to keep warm.

I love the one with the ball. Did you throw the ball then took the shot? Or did you have help from someone else?

there's already some fabulous photos here, thanks for starting the thread Marc. Love the borzois running, not a dog I see alot of around here and certainly not in action like that.
I wanted to post this one of a friends greyhound, Flynn. I took it about a year ago and it's not the best but it shows his joy at running. Sadly Flynn has just been diagnosed with osteosarcoma and probably wont be around for much longer. All his friends are devastated, as is his loving mum.
