so @frankc i gotta ask, your dogs are Afghans correct? That sure is a unique (and pretty) breed.

Not quite. They are Borzoi, prior to 1939 they were known as Russian wolfhounds. They are in the sighthound family along with Afghans, greyhounds, Saluki, and a few others. A well-conditioned one is capable of running about 35mph, but they are couch potatoes most of the time.

They kinda do. Sometimes they see deer on the other side of the fence, and it's pretty fun to watch them stare at each other.

Here's another shot that better shows the shape of our youngest one. The older two have gotten rather overweight, but the youngest still looks like she's supposed to.

Here's a couple action shots of our first two Borzoi at a dog park. The red and white one is the one in my avatar photo. The other dog never stood a chance, but despite looking like it was about to meet its demise, they were all just having fun.

Here is a more typical pose. Notice how they can twist their bodies to lie on the floor on both sides at the same time.
