Silken Windhounds are a unique breed of sighthound. They are the only American sighthound breed, and are also the only small, coated sighthound. Originally, their breed was created to hunt small game, serve as a modern companion, and compete in sighthound performance events.
They are quirky, interesting, intelligent,and observant little creatures with a penchant for mischief and playful fun. Many people who know and love them chose fantastical nicknames for the breed, such as "fairy dogs" and "dragon hounds," which reflects their aura of not quite being really from this world. They are highly sociable, extremely entertaining, and beautifully athletic.

Inca is a mischievous, elfin little dog. I call her my Fey Creature of the Underworld. She pretends innocence, but in reality is a sly and cunning trickster. Inca's mischief is lighthearted and brings me a lot of amusement. She pesters the other dogs incessantly, but they all adore her, too. She is extremely loving and loyal with her family, and is always there to make me smile and laugh when I am down. She is absolutely fanatical when it comes to "getting bunnies" and loves lure coursing. She has tons of drive and is whip-fast and agile. She's earned a reputation for screaming and yodeling at the top of her lungs while hopping like a kangaroo on her way to the line. My girl is my constant companion and loves eating at outdoor cafes, traveling in the camper, and taking long walks.

Savvy is a wonderful dog. He is sensitive and aware, focused, and eager to please. He's a hard worker and very, very smart. He is also incredibly driven and has a lot of heart. He is already doing very well in his racing and coursing career, running with power, speed, and grace. Savvy works as my primary Therapy Dog, and has demonstrated an extremely high level of sensitivity and awareness of the needs of the people he ministers to, regardless of age. Working with him is a joy and a privilege. Savvy loves to do his jobs and to roughhouse with his many dog friends.
Savvy was the FIRST-EVER Silken Windhound to win Best Puppy in Show at a large UKC show. He completed his Therapy Dog certifications three days after his first birthday.
