    Hi all! I thought I'd start a thread for those of us who have silkies. Maybe share some picts and tell why you love the silkie breed. I'll start. I love having silkies because they are so kind and loving! Mine love to sleep in my lap while getting a pet. They purr so happily when I pet them. Here is a pic of one of my girls on my lap. Her name is peepers. I think silkies are just so adorable!![​IMG]

    I don't have any silkies, (maybe one day) but I think they are gorgeous. Their little faces remind me of an owl. She looks quite content on your lap.
