Welcome to the Pip and Coco Saluki Page where we hoped to keep a record in photographs and videos of the joys of living with two young saluki dogs.
Pip (Altaya Sandpiper) was our first showdog after years of loving our old rescue saluki bitches. Coco (Caryna Curetes) was the puppy who thought he was the boss. He's now quite a mature juvenile of 2 and a bit.
Pip passed his Gold Good Citizen Award at 22 months old and Coco (somehow) passed his bronze at just 6 months old, and his Silver at the third attempt at 14 months old. Pip attended regular Agility training (www.kimhunt.co.uk), Coco is following in his wake. Both were keen on racing.
Pip and Coco loved running together in the fields we rent. Following Pip's most untimely death at the age of 3 years and 4 months from Acute Myeloid Leukaemia Coco was sadly alone.
In May 2010 Coco was joined by puppy Tuppence (2p), a second cousin of Pip's and she worked wonders on cheering him up and eventually getting him back to fitness. Tuppence and Coco now enjoy the fields together.
In November 2010 along came puppy Sivendra Tahmas Altaya (Tammas) who is related to both Pip and Coco. We co-own Tuppence and Tammas with Elaine and Neil Stanmore. Tammas is not old enough yet to run with Coco and 2p in either the fields or the garden, so he uses all his energy chasing them around the furniture inside instead.
