there and may God Bless you, your family, and loved ones, both
My name is Johnny
and my Saluki companion and I live in a
nice wooded area within the National
Capital Greenbelt that surrounds the newly expanded City
Canada's federal capital
It's so peaceful and natural out here that we have a resident Wild Turkey that everyone calls Matilda, and some time ago a
nice doe swooshed past me within an arm's length as I was chatting
to a neighbour and jumped the six-foot fence into the dog run, bumped
my canoe off of its stands then jumped out the other side of the run
leaving tummy hairs on both fence rails! Good thing my
pooches only saw this brief intrusion from indoors \\:-))
By now - if you don't
already know - you're probably asking yourself, 'What
is a Saluki?' Click and read

Mother's Day to Earth Day
Although LEO's going to be two years old on the long
weekend in May, here are a few pictures of LEO and two of his sisters
when they were
about eight weeks old: 1, 2, 3 (3's my favourite because I think he looks so mischievious!) and here are a few pictures with his
6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 . Check out LEO's
blog entry during summer camp 2008 for recent
photos of his littermates.

My playful Saluki Hound AQUILA aka
AKILA or AKI, was the king of the castle. His full name was Windstorm
Shwana Black Piano. Sadly, he died on
Earth Day, 2009 just days before his eighth birthday which would have
been on Mother's Day.
AKILA and I have welcomed the newest member of our
family. whose name
is LEONIDAS, which is tres cool, although he likes to be called
LEO. LEO enjoys being with his uncle
AKI and will give him a sporting buddy.
It's all working out great! Since then, all three of us lads shared the
greatest of moments together as you can see from the video \\:-)
