    Hey guys! I'm new to posting, but I've been a lurker for a while now. I should probably go post a member intro, but first, I wanted to introduce my pup, Lugia! (pronounced with a hard "g" and yes, named after the Pokemon!) Lugia is a 6-month old Silken Windhound and pretty much the star of my life.

    [​IMG]

    Both Lugia and I are incredibly lucky because her littermate Birdie lives just 3 miles from us! They were re-united two months ago... I love this pic because it looks like Lugia is panting with excitement as she creeps up on Birdie, who looks on with mild concern and ears laid back.

    They make such a great pair!

    I love it when they face-fight. Sometimes they'll just lay there on the ground like that mouthing each other for up to 15 minutes... soo cute.

    Taken just recently, a little over 6 months old. Their size difference isn't that dramatic in real life.

    And as a bonus pic -- all of Lugia's sisters at 5.5 months old!

    I loooove Lugia, so gorgeous and one of these days I'm going to be asking you about the breed.

    So happy you started posting!

    Haven't had the opportunity to see much of this breed. I didn't know Silken Windhound can be soooo gorgeous. Can understand why Lugia is the star of your life. This SW is so beautiful.

    Yay! SWH pictures!! I've been drooling over this breed for a while now, unfortunately the husband isn't a big fan of how sighthounds are built (jerk!), lol. I hope you post lots and lots and lots of pictures of him!

    They're so pretty it hurts! Do you mind if I PM you about them? I've met a couple and I'm semi-interested in them.
