Glad you liked the pix :-) A Saluki doing agility!?¡¿

Yep!
That is a first for me. I was wondering when someone would try it.

Done more than try it- Puzzle is titled at top levels in all three major U.S. agility organizations (AKC, USDAA, NADAC).
-) He's an amazing dog, with a very good handler.
I'm still waiting to hear about a flyball Saluki.

Heh. Now THAT I have a bit of trouble picturing.
I'm assuming "BC" is Boarder Collie.

Got it in one. :-) She's definitely Border Collie crossed with some sort of sighthound, and going by her appearance, Saluki or a Saluki cross is the most likely possibility. I've seen pictures of Saluki lurchers from Britain- dogs that are 3/4 or 7/8 Saluki, the remainder BC or "working collie", and they look very much like her aside from being taller and leaner due to having more Saluki in them.
Howdy Sionnach,
Salukis are crossed with a number of other breeds for coursing. In the US you hear about lurchers and Staghounds. They have also been crossed with the sled pulling dogs and have been in the Ididirod (sp) race. A side note about Border Collies; A neighbor of mine runs a rescue kennel for the breed. Must have about 30 of them.

I also have found that the MALES I have and have had,will FIGHT more than the FEMALES. There is never a fight between any of my males with the females.

i suspect that's breed- and situation-dependent. i have a male and a female, and it's always the female who starts fights between the two of them.

What's YOURS?

different than yours. HTH!

Yep. Brenin never starts fights, though he'll sometimes respond if challenged (by other male dogs who aren't pack members), and he defends possessions with huge bluff displays. Any scuffles in my household are either Rocsi and Morag getting annoyed with each other, or Rocsi telling off Brenin for getting too near her food.

shelly, I was not asking you was I?
Didn't you ask me once why I was answering a question that you posed to someone else?
So what is it? Do as I say not as I do?
HTH!

elliott will fight with harriet if she makes him . he'd really rather not, though. with non-pack members, all bets are off. there's a bratty PooX currently living across the lane from me. he sits at the edge of his property and taunts my dogs. if they were to get out, that dog would be d-e-a-d. i can't really blame them for being so cranky about it, because i've seen the little SOB marking my gate. i'm not amused.

heh. elliott tattles.

oh yeah. i usually feed harriet in her crate. you should hear the sounds she makes when the cats get too close while she's eating. she lets them and elliott sleep in her crate, but when she's eating, they'd best steer clear.

: I'm amazed at how many people use this phrase to stop any sort of : unwarranted grumblings... : It's ... out of hand. You mean you haven't picked up "HEY YOU GET OUTTA THAT!" from your days spent herding yet?

Oh yes...that's situational specific, though (bitchy girl-dog butt, cat butt, sheep butt, icky stuff found along somewhere). Shelly & The Boys

Of course.
Between a male and a female if there is a fight the female will start a fight and finish a fight IMO and IME, as the guy gives in.

Need not matter breed , as I see it all the time with mutts and other breeds.

Males go looking for trouble most times and want to fight other males, females look for trouble with other females a bit, but usually they both will stop fighting, and it is usually all talk and movement.

IMO and IME.
