We just returned from Silver City, where we picked up new pack member, Ashley, from Dutch Salmon.  This is a trial period.  She's three years old, and is not quite used to living in a house.. with people.  She did have access to the indoors, with Dutch's other dogs in the kennel.  Right now, she's hanging out by the back door, and shows no inclination to venture further into the house.  We'll see how it shakes out.  If all goes well, we'll have a young pack for the Pack Hunt for the first time in several years!

For the curious, Ashley is roughly 3/8 Saluki-Tazi, and 5/8 coldblood greyhound.  She's been out often with us, so going out with her tomorrow with just Sandia and me shouldn't be too much of a problem.  Unless she decides to go the 90 miles back to Silver City.


  1. she is lovely! so, you are currently dh-less? (like us 8>( ). who else is in your pack?

  2. I've seen photos of Tasy (Tazi?) before in books, but never have met one in real life. Tasy supposedly were instrumental in the creation of the Borzoi breed.

  3. Tazis are more like Salukis (in fact many people consider them the same breed). Ashley's roots are from Steve Bodio's Kazakh tazis. (Many pictures at Steve's Querencia blog)
