After been injured during the international coursing in Amermont, and few weeks at rest, Favi did very well at the last competition of the year in Beringen. She ended with the 7th place / 18 entries. Her shoulder and finger held up well.

For her part, Indhira's knee (stupidly injured in the garden when playing with Oriana) is still too fragile too take any risk. She will stay far from coursing grounds for several more weeks.

The siblings got again both 1st Very Prominsing, Obama won Best Baby and also Best in Show Baby ! Judge was M. J.F. Vanaken (B).

Sad end of the weekend, our beloved Bahiya awaited our return from the Liège dog show to cross the rainbow bridge
Our heart is broken, all we can do is to remind of the wonderful moments we shared with her on the show rings, coursing grounds, and especially in our daily lives. She gave us the succesful "I" litter in 2009, with Indhira, Icyana, Ismaïla, Indiana, IntaJeriko & Istaphar.
But above all, she was the most wonderful companion, always happy.
We will never forget her, a part of us is gone with her ....

It's confirmed, we will not have Afghan babies this year :(

Otherwise, if all goes well, we will welcome our first Whippet litter!

Indeed, Favi is pregnant ! :) The birth is scheduled April 5th. I can now tell you that the proud father is Ch. Jilson du Clos d'Orffeng (Luxembourg Ch., Coursing French Ch., International Coursing Ch., Winner GPX SCC racing, Sujet recommendé CFW).




As a reminder our Favi (Meradith Favourite Everyone) is Luxembourg Ch., Switzerland Ch., French Lauréat Standard Performance, International Beauty & Performance Ch., International Coursing Ch., Coursing French Ch., Coursing Belgian Ch., Belgian Cup Winner 2012 & 2013, Winner GPX 2013. Top Coursing Whippet 2012 & 2013 BWCBW.

Pedigree of the future litter :…
Favi and Jilson have both been submitted to the detection of ocular defects as well as echocardiography and were declared "healthy".


February, 17th, 2015

Sad news today, the echography revealed that Indhira is not pregant :(

We are so sorry for people who were interested by this breeding intented to produce healthy puppies for show and coursing :(


January, 18th, 2015

Well, that's a little earlier than expected, but if all goes well, the last Abd El Shiraz  Afghans puppies should be born about March 26! This will indeed be our last Afghan litter (39 years after the entry of the first Afghan in my life !).
I will wait to be sure to unveil the pedigree of the litter, but I can still say that Dad as
Indhira is multi champion beauty AND work (and tested healthy eyes and heart, as Indhira).


January, 18th, 2015

Indhira is in seasons ! May be soon a new (and last) afghan adventure at Abd El Shiraz !


January, 17th, 2015

We are very happy. We did the eye defects testings (13 tests) and echocardiography for our two girls, Indhira & Favi, and they are both clear ! We can think seriously to bred them !
