Azawakh Family

February 5, 2013

It is (somewhat) cold and cloudy today. It feels like rain. The puppies are now 8 weeks old. They can manage to scrabble up onto the couch and are very proud of themselves. All four of them are lying together in a pile.

This sort of snuggling behavior is common for Azawakh when the temperature dips a bit. It is quite endearing.

Their bodies are adapted to tolerate the extreme heat of the Sahel and souther Sahara.  Their behavior is adapted to tolerate the cold nights in the desert when the temperatures plunge.

(The couch color was not my choice. It is government issue, I’m afraid.)
