When someone you love dies and you’re not expecting it, you don’t lose her all at once – you lose her in pieces over a long time…..

If we only would get a more time – a week, a day, a hour, even a minute to pamper you! One more time to see you flying and gaiting in garden showing beautiful essence, carriage and movement you had… The most beautiful we’ve ever seen…

 

C.I.B BALT EST LV LT RUS CH EST VETERAN CH  AL KHABARA GRACE OF LOVE

We lost our beautiful Maasu unexpetedly, we did everything possible to save her but even sterilization did not help – cancer was so spreaded.

Forever in our hearts and memories …. Maasu, we all miss you so much

Always as possible, we took out our dogs in brace for Brace competition ring in shows. The main goal was that they enjoy so much to move in bigger ring in pair and they can go together not leaving another one at ringside being sad there or whining why it abandoned to wait and watch while another one enjoying to show off.

This was written be me in Facebook Notes at 2013 and I republish it here as FB seem to not support Notes sharing anymore.

Some grooming tips about our grooming method

There for sure is many ways working with Afghan Hound coat and knot managing….but not many seem to use method to avoid knots appearing. I’ve got good results with this since 2006, that works amazingly….

Currently we have several young dogs, more or less coat, they do well and without mats 2 – 3 weeks, brushing and hairdrying takes 1-2 hour;) So this technics works if used since puppyhood, if starting later, then it takes few month I guess , depending of amount broken hair in coat. As soon it grows or changes to healthy hair, it works and the time between baths lengten. We never  scissor young dogs to look less hair for judges;)  We let it coat change naturally and settle down to be long healthy hair;)

Imagine having 3 youngsters through changing hair and have no knots nor mats and can bath them every 10 day;) Except during 1-2 week after heat of females 2 month later when they drop a little coat or male when he just literally changes puppy fluff off, need to bath once per week. Yes, we have few different hair types represented aswell from little coat to lot.YES that is possible!!! With simple goal: grow the healthy hair since beginning, avoid broke any hair, bath day BEFORE any knots appearing. With this, they start have unbroken hair since young puppy age.
