Physically, though, not much about the physique of the Greyhound has changed in the last centuries. Every inch of the Greyhound is specifically designed for speed. Narrow skull, long neck, strong back, lean legs - all supported by extraordinary musculature.
So when you find a variation in the Greyhound, hound-lovers gather around to see. One such variation is the Roman Nose. According to one source a Roman Nose is one "a nose with a prominent slightly aquiline bridge." Another source says, "a nose whose bridge is comparatively high, forming a slightly convex line from forehead to the tip of the nose."
Uma Thurman has a Roman Nose.
This guy has one.
This horse has one.
And these greyhound girls have Roman Noses, too. That's Lady Athena in the red hat and Paris with the pink "bling" collar. I was so excited to get these photos!
Viva la Roman Nose!
