Related to Royalty

As the greyhound blogging community mourns the passing of Queen Lilac, it got me thinking of a comment that Houndstooth made that Lilac and Beth might be related.
A quick search on greyhound database brought up the following results.
Lilac and Beth have both Kunta Kinte and Downing in their lineage. Must be very dominant genes :)


  1. That's great. They do seem to have a similar personality. :-)

  2. Lol, it's a small world! Beryl isn't on the database and she should be because she raced:(

  3. Lilac threw her share of blue and blue brindle puppies, too! I'd say they're definitely related, and may Beth have the same long life that Lilac had. I know she got the same stubborn genes, so I'll be smiling here when I read about her antics!

    Thank you for the kind words about Lilac, too! :)

  4. I found two cousins and a grandma through the GDB! Congratulations, it's exciting, isn't it?

  5. Hi Genji,
    I love new friends!! I am a big sight Hound lover, I have had a Ibizan Hound and a Whippet and a part whippet part lab and she was my last sight hound that I lost last June. She was almost 14.
    I love your brood!! I wish I could have more then one dog and one cat but truth be told We just can't afford more!!
    xx, Fern

  6. That's so neat that you can look up their lineage and draw connections among dogs in the blog community! One oft he many draws to having greyhounds...I hope I get to foster one someday.
