Oh my. Make the white feet cream, remove the blaze, and switch the ears to rose-shaped, and that's a heck of a lot like Morag!
I'm not as familiar with Borzios

Just an FYI- Gwen hit a couple of keys out of sequence. ;-) It's spelled Borzoi.
Which is indelibly engraved on my brain due to the fact that my father's read-aloud choices for his kids were a tad odd... including Saki. One of the Saki short stories he read us was about a music-hall performance consisting of someone marching back and forth across the stage with a troupe of dogs, whist the phrase "Cousin Teresa takes out Caesar, Fido, Jock, and the big BOR-ZOI!" (kettle-drum on the word Borzoi) was chanted.
This is a shameless promotion of my little web page :-)

Great pictures! I love the wading pool one, and the sleeping upside down ones.
The sleeping ones especially cracked me up because my Morag (who is believed to be a BC/Saluki cross) sleeps that way.

BTW, it might interest you to know that there's a Saluki very sucessfully doing agility in my area.
that'll bring the total number of dogs in her home to 9 (she has 7 of her own). I can't even imagine.

One of my agility clubmates does Scottie rescue, and also takes in dogs of other breeds. Last time I heard, she and her husband had more than a dozen dogs in their home... and I believe that was not counting the foster dogs.

yeah, but they're little, so they don't take up as much space! :-)

trying to imagine having a dozen pit bulls in the house. um, no thanks.

I was thinking about this yesterday.
There is an 8 year old Irish Wolfhound who's "Mom" was called up to active duty (Just says, "Going into the Army in Nov.") in the local paper. I actually called a friend who has had IW's for 20+ years to let her know.
My husband is out of town, after Wed., for the next two weeks. I told her that I'd be willing to transport, or even have her here for a few days if needed. I told her I'd be happy to take her if the DH was willing, but I know him better than that. I mean, come on, an *8* year old IW? She's maybe got another 2, 3 years tops left, make them happy years!
Now, I know I don't have physical space for a 100+lb dog in addition to my own two (who are 115lbs together).
Yet, if I had a smaller breed, like Shelties, Pyr Sheps, or maybe when I'm old Cavs, I'd have few reservations about having 3 or 4, or even 5! As long as they were a breed that wasn't known for other dog aggression, I could easily fit a whole bunch of small dogs around here!
Of course, I'm a big dog kinda girl. My latest breed interest is the Kuvasz. However, I know their independent nature isn't what I look for in a dog.

What makes it mind-boggling it that it's NOT 12 Scotties! IIRC, only two of the dogs that she and her husband actually own are Scotties- and I know that at least one of the other dogs is a Great Dane.

Actually you get used to it, and it is no big deal, 'cept on the dog food bill.
My own dogs weigh in at about 800 pounds not to mention my rescues I have. They just hang out and relax, after they get their exercise in the morning ,and are fed and again late afternoon.

A senior big dog like this would be less of a problem then a young little dog, as they just like to hang and relax.
I once had an IW named Bayden and he was such a noble beast. : )

I think you would find you would love to have the IW!
