I was interested to read Mr. Cole’s letter in your June issue asking what colour Saluki Bronze is supposed to be. The standard of points for the Saluki or Gazelle Hound, approved by the Kennel Club in 1923, permits the following colours:
“White, cream, fawn, golden, red, grizzle, tricolour (white, black and tan) and black and tan, or variations of these colours.”
Just let me loose for five minutes with the half-witted copywriter who coined “Saluki Bronze” as a name for paint on mass-produced tinware.
