I was updating all the showresults and now starting step by step to upload all the many pictures, show travels and everything to step from summer into the autumn plans to update.
It have been big changes in my mind quite a time and maybe this also slowed down updates here – I want change the design of our website and finally get the little shop to run, but it have been technically a challenge those who know me closer I want what I want and nothing else, so it takes now only finish the set up from scratch.
Stay tuned with us!
Long story to short, we took home 2 CACIB, 2 res-CACIB’s, 2 CAC’s and one new LT Champion!
But here is breakdown and all the photos:
First day Maasu ( CH Al Khabara Grace Of Love) took res-CACIB, judge Mr J.Liimatainen, Finland.
Second day Maasu took CACIB, BOS and *new* title LT CH, sighthound judge Elena Agafonova , Russia. THANK YOU :)
Did not got a classic BOS & BOB photo, well at least I was trying, never mind, but posting Maasu’s moving and more photos from ring.
Maasu is from our G-litter by Int CH Agha Djari’s Urban Cowboy x Int CH Kingsleah Amazing Grace.
Al Khabara Let the Sensation Rock “Rocky ” has great news from Ransäter International Show in Sweden he was BM-2, with Swedish CAC and reserve- CACIB (= CACIB).
Thank you to judge Mr Bertil Lundgren, Sweden
Congratulations Lena !!!
Weekend news turned up that cool as two youngsters from our latest litter, 17 month old, got their first CACIB’s this past weekend – SMOKEY ( JCH Al Khabara Let Me Be Your Sensation ) at Adazi I nternational Show in Latvia, under pouring heavy rain and
ROCKY ( Al Khabara Let The Sensation Rock) from International show in Ransäter, Sweden
as the res-CACIB’s turn into CACIBs for both of them.
Both boys opened their International Championship plus Rocky opened his Swedish Championship with his SWE CAC.
What a pity we do not have any picture from Latvia because the rain and flashing was that bad and my hands were busy with holding up the tent and grooming dogs for Alex to take into ring one by one.
But I have only these few moving pictures and little video clip of Maasu, who did not dare of rain, but as heavier it rained ( and you can hear how heavily it poured down when watching the video below this post) than more fed up she also got and she refused to go inside of judges tent. She is stubborn – haha – but she likes to move and show off.
It’s official now !!!! Sensei can write his name now AM CH Al Khabara Lezz Go Sensational JC
Way to go Sensei, we are so proud of you :)

Sweet Dusya (Multi CH, C.I.B. Al Khabara Damitha) – 11,5 years – photo from Germany,, how lovely to see Dusya 11,5 years young, mother of 2 litters still going strong!
We are so happy Dusya is so loved and we are SO proud of offspring and grandoffspring carrying her line ahead!
Dusya lives in Al Naqawa kennel, Germany
I have got so many nice feedback about her from the ones met her in person. She has the so admired Afghan Hound expression and gives you that special look that lets you understand you are not valuable comparing her.
She also tends to do this at showstack like saying ” Look at Me ” and if she do not get attention enough then she gives you look “what is here so hard to understand who is best here?”. I was so laughing hearing this as also her Mom Lilli tends to give that look to judges and make ringside smile on her. No wonder also Kiss has her own fan club!
She is on the way to finish soon her title, we are keeping fingers for her ;)
Kiss is owned by Karen and Jen (kennels Baakara and Cairo)
Here comes Phoebe ( Al Khabara Lily Of The Valley ) pictured few days ago! What can I say, I just adore her. By personality she is opposite of her sister Roxanna or should I say rascal Roxanna. Phoebe is so lady-like, never running through dirt in garden, or looking for troubles by counter surfing – she is so good girl and I mean good with other dogs, people and everything, so sweet and loving soul. But….. she singing louder than anyone else when Alex arriving home and she hear the car driving in.
I think her name Lily Of The Valley suits her so well and she was Piibe (Phoebe) for me since beginning. But she is Chanel for Alex and knows both names well. One would think here of Roxanna who has quite a several names and selective hearing depend what for you call her :)
Her two first show went under rain so she haven’t got to enjoy herself in showring yet, tho she got first two junior CC and we are looking for some shows with her in near future.
Time to present the new headstudies! Here comes Sensei ( AM CH Lezz Go Sensational).

Couldn’t be more happy with head types in our L-litter ! All of them got chiselling, roman noses and dark eyes, not to mention under jaws. And as breeder I can say, all 6 puppies has excellent bites and full dentitions.
They now grow up from puppyhood and how interesting is to follow their development, surprising my every time I get new pictures.
I am posting some more headstudies in next post.
Message from proud breeders – Sensei is now AM CH Al Khabara Lezz Go Sensational
At just 1 week past his 15 mos birthday Sensei earned his second major to finish. It’s been a an incredible ride…he arrived in the US last July. ..started showing in September, at his first show he went BOB. …and just kept on going. …can’t wait to see what happens next on his journey.

Phoebe’s ( Al Khabara Lily Of The Valley ) second time in Juniors and let’s hope today is not raining again !
She got also JCAC today, her 2nd show and 2nd JCAC, and later, like her brother Smokey yesterday, she was chosen into 10 best juniors in show from all breeds. Good girl Phoebe ! But in heavy rain – she might think shows mean standing and running in the rain !
