Perhaps you were like me, not really interested in reading anything except the printed word? I'm pretty old-fashioned in many ways: I still read the daily newspaper at the breakfast table, I enjoy reading the dog newspapers that still arrive in droves by mail, and I usually read myself to sleep with a good book at night — but I have to admit I've changed my habits quite a lot since Sighthound Review went digital. There were several things I liked about the internet already — email! Google!

    In this the second* of three articles dealing with controversial colors and patterns in various Sighthound breeds, we cover the Afghan Hound, Scottish Deerhound, Rhodesian Ridgeback and Basenji.

  • Although the Sloughi has been in the AKC Hound Group since January 1, 2016, it remains an extremely rare breed in the U.S. In fact, in 2018 the Sloughi was last on AKC's ranking of Most Popular Breeds, coming in as no.

I have finally come to an age where I can employ these two significant words: “Years ago.” As the story unfolds, I was walking to my ring and found myself behind two gentlemen amiably talking. One of the gentlemen said he was off to finish his Terrier assignment and asked his comrade where he was off to next. “I’m set to judge the Draft Horses next,” he replied.

This year the Fédération Cynologique Internationale held its European Lure Coursing Championship on the weekend of June 20-23 in Estonia. For many enthusiasts this was too far away from central Europe.
