DogsLive, Kent 2014

Organiser of the popular DogsLive event contacted UKSWC to invite Silken Windhounds to take part in their 'Greet the Breed' section.  An opportunity for the public to meet and learn about some of the more unusal breeds.  The weekend was a great success with lots of interest being taken.

Jillys Jolly Jaunt - June 2013

Silkens from the tops of Scotland and the depths of Devon as well as the more civilised garden of England, walked to support Jilly and friends who in turn walked 130 miles from the NEC, Brimingham to Great Ormond Street Hospital. Jilly (Crufts Best in Show winner Ch. Soletrader Peek-a-Boo) was raising funds for GOSH, DogLost Charities and The KC Charitable Trust. More details at

August 2012 - Hound Parade

The Hound Association celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 2012 and in recognition of this they invited breeders and owners of rare hounds - which included the Silken Windhound - to partake in a special Hound Parade.  We were presented with a lovely commemorative rosette, kindly sponsored by 'Our Dogs' . This took place during their Annual show on 4th August at Staffordshire Showground.
