Azawakh Team Mates

In a small pack of Azawakh, these dogs often pair up to hunt.
At the bottom is Tahatmellet; he and Iférouane are a hunting team, working in tandem. They also play tag together. Iférouane, whose ear is always uncombed, is extremely agile in quartering and eluding Tahatmellet when he is trying to tag her. In the house, these two do not get along all that well though.
Iférouane is a sand color taidit (female Azawakh) and her photo is sandwiched between Tahatmellet, who is a red brindle male with white marks.
Above him is Atakor. He is the Clyde of Bonnie and Clyde, and Bonnie, his partner in crime, is Tcherot. They do everything together, although there are some things Tcherot likes to do that Atakor prefers to ignore - such as, rolling on a bed of rocks.
Atakor is much too sensible for that sort of thing. Of course Tcherot is a very skilled, silent stalker, as you can see in the top photo.

Viewers have tried to comment, so I have opened up comments to the public again. (Due to repeated abusive language submitted by one person, I have restricted comments for a while.) The sporadic technical glitches persist. I see blank comments coming in frequently. Blogger needs to fix this, one of these days. Please email me if your comment does not appear.
