We awake each morning to start a new day
But the pain of loosing you never goes away.
We go about the things we have to do
And as the hours pass we think again of you.
You are in snowflake, in the rays of sun, in the sparkling of stars
If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane,
We’d walk right up to heaven and bring you home again
Why does it take a minute to say hello and forever to say goodbye?
We will miss you more than words can say, our dearest Favourita
Read about Favourita and see video from year 2002:
Favourita was first puppy born on my hands in our first litter. Since early puppyhood she did’not let a doubt that she is one very special puppy with very red coat and sabled very dark huge paws.
At age 10 month Favourita marched into living room and with her proud head high carriage and very calm attitude everyone got it immediately that new Queen arrived. Since that day till last weekend at 2014 she was the queen in pack everyone had very lot respect and she made all our dogs live happily together.
With her very kind personality, never sharp and always forgiving she even was honored by wildest rascal puppies. She was the once in a lifetime Afghan Hound for all of us and left a very big empty place …. This cute gray face and loving eyes are now only a memory, more memories than if were a thousand years old
Favourita was great show dog, the one always made ringside clap their hands and even call her name. She enjoyed to be in show ring, and she liked to lead in move, she had very special carriage with very proud head hold high rarely seen.
How lot we traveled with her, almost allt he European countries she was shown with pride and joy and great results she gained quite a big number of CACIBs and was awarded TOP SHOWDOG here from all breeds at Estonian Kennel Club rating from Estonian bred dogs.
Here is one video from year 2002, International Show in Pärnu, this is filmed from screen from old VHS tape but the Favo is there as she was – always proud and owned the ring attitude, always breeder-owner handled by Alex they made unforgettable team.
Favourita lived very long and also very healthy life, she needed to visit vet only for scheduled vaccinations, she had only kennel cough once in her life and once she broke one toenail by taking wild runs in still icey garden in March many years ago. Favourita had eyes checked officially and clear. She was strong till she left us, still head held high and holding topline, she was curious oldie to take part about everything in daily life.
We bred Favourita at 2006 to Australian import CH Karakush Its U Nanimous (natural breeding ) and Favo whelped 3 nice puppies who have lived very healthy and still are, our F-litter where from her Son – C.I.B Al Khabara Fiery Mouztafa sired our E-litter at 2012 and gave us 9 beautiful grand kids of Favourita which from several herited also lot from Favorita.
Her Granddaughter Entel ( JCH Al Khabara Easy Breezy Me) here at Al Khabara has very much similar personality aswell several of her littermates. Entel too is so smart that sometimes I just can not believe she is a dog because she thinks more like human. Interesting is that since Favourita itself was very calm puppy, not a one teeth chews in household, so is all our next generations except of course some funny stories I am hoping to write down a bit later when I would be able to do it without tears…..
May you find comfort in the arms of an angel our very special Favorita
We will miss you more than words can say
