Calygreyhound Heraldry Creature Sketch- Need opinions!

Hey everyone!

I'm a part of a heraldry book project where a group of artists are drawing mythological and heraldic creatures.  I chose the Calygreyhound.  It is described consistently as having the head of a wildcat, the torso of a deer or antelope, the claws of an eagle on its forefeet, ox hooves, antlers or horns, the hind legs of a lion or ox, and its tail like a lion or poodle. It is said to represent speed.  I'm having fun thinking up the anatomy of the creature, but coming up with an engaging pose it turning into a challenge. 

If anyone has any opinions, please share!
