Proud GrandMom of beautiful grand and grand-grandchildren born in Sweden, USA and Russia !
Pictured at her favourite spot, on the kitchen couch.
Great video of Darrah (CH Al Khabara Darrah ) having playtime with her daughter Lilja at Zandirah kennels.
Her owners told Darrah mostly loves lounging on couch at daytime but when she get the game bug then no matter what she enjoying it whole heartedly as you can see from this mobile video.
Darrah is 8 years old and by the way in veteran age, she is full littermate to the Dahoak and Dhabi-Dhurrah and lives in Sweden.
Many thanks to her owners Carolina and Benita for this entertaining video clip!
Now when it is not so freezing cold anymore but only -6C (21,2F) Salukis took full fun out of snowy garden! Some of them captured while racing in snow yesterday. We have alltogether four Salukis, all are veterans: Littermates Batman and DiDi – 8 years old, Niikki 10 years old and their mom Helmi 15 years old.
We are considering veteran carreer for Batman, thinking back to this achievements in Group and BIS rings that would be fun! Lets see what spring brings!
DiDi has most incredible movement from her mom Helmi. She was winning few puppy BIS at international shows and started well in junior class with her first CAC but then unfortunately injured her pastern. Surgery sadly was not fixed it so she lived as couch potato here at Al Khabara and running wild and happy with his brother and older sister and their Mom.
Now lets the pictures talk:
