Silken Windhounds at Gryffyn's Aeyrie

Our Silken Windhounds have also had their share of success: the first Silken (and second) to earn a UKC Grand Championship, the #1 UKC Silken Windhound (2011, 2013, 2014-2017), multiple Top Ten UKC Silken Windhounds, the first Silken to be awarded a championship in Rarities/NAKC, multiple specialty winners around the nation, and a triple-winner of the Silken Windhound National Specialty Show (SilkenFest).

Not all of these Silken Windhounds reside here at the Aeyrie, but we list them here as they are prominent for their various successes, or to our future plans.

Our Champion Silken Windhounds

These are our Silken Windhounds that have attained a championship in any of the venues that are available for Silkens to show in. We do not get many opportunities to show our Silkens in Texas at ISWS-sanctioned shows, so we have traveled to Colorado, Missouri, North Carolina, New Jersey, Ohio and California to work towards earning our ISWS Champion titles.

In 2011, the UKC recognized Silken Windhounds and we were able to attend UKC shows and compete.
