Large, Visible Veins

My 11.5 year old broodie has very large visible veins on her belly. They don't seem to bother her, she appears completely healthy in every way, and she's had them as long as I've had her. I'm just wondering if this is normal for some hounds? I don't recall any of my other Greyhounds or Whippets having these. Here's a picture of her stomach.

Her littermate sister Pink does not have such prominent veins. She does have lots more hair. :)

 

Betsy's veins are pretty prominent, but not all that big. Graham's were big and prominent. The winner by far was broodie Dixie, with huge prominent veins, and at least 40 puppies to her credit.

So maybe it is just a broodie thing and normal. Pep is VERY furry elsehwere, but for some reason, keeps a bald belly. She has the nicest bunny fur elsewhere though, even on her butt.
