CH RUWACK�S MASERATI BY & BYE-BYE.  Black and silver smooth boy with clean flowing lines. Pleasing head piece. Beautiful neck into well laid shoulder. Excellent angles to front assembly, and excellent depth and length to rib cage. Very good curvy underline. Strong croup, giving width to upper thigh. A tad too much behind for me, but he had so many excellent qualities. Sound and graceful.

Out of a litter bred by Starr White - Windstorm Salukis ~ WINDSTORM ANTARA PROMISE UMUCH JC. A lightly shaded fawn girl with excellent proportions & size. Very feminine. Crested neck which flowed smoothly into a strong topline. Curvy underline with a most pleasing waist. Very pretty headpiece, with correct planes and strength to the underjaw. Gentle expression. Sound flowing movement�nothing overdone with this girl. Excellent clean moving front. Moderate. To be picky, I would prefer her croup to be less angled. WINNERS BITCH, BEST OF WINNERS

Out of a litter bred by Kim Stewart - Uluru Salukis ~ ULURU LOCHLAN OF GAYANULU. Self red dog with white trim. Much to like about this boy who is still only a youngster. Moderate throughout. I liked his size, bladed  bone, and correct angulation. Very pleasing neck into shoulder, well ribbed back into a flowing underline. Correct width to upper thigh which goes with a moderately angled croup. Fit and muscular. Needing more fill in front, but strong going away. Profile gait, light and easy. Head planes were parallel. Would prefer a larger eye. High set, mobile ears. WINNERS DOG

3/1 - 3/09 ~ Andrew, Sharon, and Merlin took off for England.  It was a cold day, but all went well.  They said the flight was a little bumpy, but was not to bad.  They went out for their first sight seeing and had a wonderful time.  Andrew climbed all the way to the top of the hill where Lord Carnarvon is buried.  Andrew says it is a beautiful view.  He also says that England is really beautiful and not sure he wants to come home, but he will.  He also says that maybe one day he'll move there because it is so beautiful.  Merlin decided it was to cold to venture out that day, but he gets out and plays with the other Salukis that are owned by Helen & Michael Williams.  Helen tells me not to worry that everyone is in good hands and is getting along just fine.

1-16/09 ~ BIG NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!  Our wonderful Lord above has watched over us and has answered our prayers.  With each obstacle that has come our way; he has provided us with the guidance needed.
