And the above pic is a dead ringer for the female named China. She was 7 and her buddy was a male pup who was 17 months old, can't remember his name. They were both Grey and looked like hairy Greys. The "Girls" got along fine with them.

If a hippie and a greyhound got married it would look like that.

Another reason to avoid the alternative lifestyles tent at OWS. :biggrin-new:

If it were a real Afghan hound, it would be wearing a burqa.

I never thought about the possible connection. I must say though, that what Afghan hounds gained in hair they seem to have lost in intellect. I'll grant you that my experience is limited, but every Afghan hound I have come across was a little, um, stupid isn't the word for it. I think "aloof" would be close, but then a lot of people who don't know greyhounds find them to be shy and undoglike. It took a long time for my mom's greyhound to start acting like a dog, I always attributed that to the institutionalization rather than the breed.
