I've never heard someone refer to them as ugly. I think they are "artistic" in so many ways even when cuddled up they look like a beautiful pile of long legs and soulful faces..I agree...they are such photogenic dogs. I will never understand how some people could think of them as ugly!
Thank you. Yes, very much so. They’re like tiny deer, and their legs are quite long. For the first 18 months of their lives, you’re supposed to prevent them from jumping down from couches, et cetera because of the risk to their legs. Ouji’s legs seem stronger than those of some other Italian greyhounds as his breakages were from mishaps and not just jumping down from the couch or something similar. Heck, he started pogo jumping in place when he was a puppy! Then he would run at you, leap up, and kangaroo kick you before bouncing away. He’s truly fearless.Oh no, poor little guy! I hope he feels better soon, and that his recovery is swift and uncomplicated.
Whenever I see my colleague's Italian Greyhound, I always marvel at how delicate her legs are. I'm sorry to hear that they're as fragile as they look
Lol yes, you’re right! They do resemble those, and even other creatures in part, so much.Yes, I always think Agatha looks like a mouse crossed with a deer! Have you ever seen a dik-dik? The resemblance is uncanny.
And yes - they're so graceful and elegant, but I think that delicacy is coming at the expense of their health.
