Sighthound Humour

I had this photo taken today by Allan and mum says its just so beautiful she wanted to share it with you all.  We also spent a while creating a new header for the site. Do you like it?


Also, I seen a funny “New Breed Standard”:

New Sighthound Standard
General Appearance: An animal of extreme grace, unless it is running anywhere near something expensive. The general appearance of any Sighthound is that of a raised bump under the sheets and covers of your freshly made bed.

The eyes are the most important feature of the breed. They can be any colour, though most Sighthounds prefer to have dark eyes, as these are more useful for conning their servants out of the best food and softest bedding. However, sighthounds can manipulate their servants in many other ways.

: Cold, wet, long and shocking when it unexpectedly makes contact with the Sighthound’s servant’s bare thigh.

Feet and Legs
: Sharp, long and unbendable. Really good Sighthound feet and legs can shove an adult man off the bed, or render him unable to breathe, with all four of the Sighthound’s feet pressing into his stomach. A well bred Sighthound also will impale armpits, eyes, mouths and other sensitive areas with his feet, while sleeping in his servant’s bed.

: The Sighthound’s body is generally either blurry in motion, or flat on it’s side. It is acceptable for the Sighthound to rest on his back, with his feet straight in the air- remember the legs are not to bend and allow any room or comfort for the human.

All Sighthounds have very special teeth and cannot eat regular food. If you wouldn’t eat it, neither will the Sighthound.

Ideally, these resemble those of a bat when the Sighthound goes for car rides and the window is open. Sighthounds are deaf at all times, except their scheduled dinner time.

As little as possible.

: Whatever colour your bedspread is, so will be the lump curled up underneath of it.
Temperament: Whimsical, stubborn, manipulative, lazy and all together wonderful.

: Failure to disobey at least twice a day, sigh loudly with disgust at least three times a day, and to take up more room in the bed than two people, regardless of the size of Sighthound, shall disqualify.


  1. The new standard is great, Luigi, although I cannot believe that it belongs to such a perfect little gentleman like you 😉

    Am I allowed to copy it and paste it on my page ?

    All the best for you and your mom

    • Oh feel free to copy it, It is not my original work we found it on a sighthound forum and just thought it was too funny not to share! 🙂

  2. I am a Whippet in Germany…. feel free to check out my blog and photos!
