Tazi has two meanings one is for the landrace sighthounds from turkey but this is just because of the other use for the word. the other use is as a generic for all the asiatic landrace sighthounds. so a borzoi & a saluki are tazi but a tazi isn't necessarily a saluki or borzoi. my mix is tough as boot leather so i'd say it's more down to the dog or line. if kept primarily for show they can be soft & will produce soft dogs. if kept for work & culled hard in a rustic setting they are plenty tough enough.
unfortunately i am not going to afghanistan w/ the kids this coming year. for several reasons i am not being permitted to go. i am torn because i hate to send my Marines over and not go w/ them. OTH my boys are 3 and they are kicking my wife's butt on an almost daily basis.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together.... Author unknown...
