Wednesday Dad went away with the car and didn't come back until quite late in the evening. He had driven all the way to Madrid and brought back one of our best friends from Norway; Evy. She had been for a long trip... First she went with one of her puppies (http://www.kennelbiscotti.com/) to Madrid to pick up another pup from kennel Hyrkanya, he is sired by Sterling. Then they all 3 went in the middle of the night to San Francisco in the US. Both puppies went to Fiona Bennett (Sterlings x-mom). Evy stayed in San Francisco with Fiona for almost a week before coming to Spain to visit us. It was great fun to meet her again!
Thursday we had to stay at home alone as Mom, Dad and Evy went to Alfas Del Pi to visit Titti, it is only 45 minutes from here. Titti is from Norway but live down here now. I used to live with her before I moved to Mom and Dad. Titti have two italian greyhounds now; Benita and Alvira. Thursday was also "afghan-bath-day" and Friday I understood why... It was a dog show! We all went to the show and can you believe; I am the most beautiful of us all! Just look at the picture! I usually don't like to move too much, but now I were offered lots of goodies and really tried to make the best of myeself and won something called "Best of Breed" - I guess it means I am the most beautiful saluki in the world..., as I had to go to a show to prove that! Sigh...
Then Saturday Evy had to go back to Norway and Mom and Dad drove her to the airport. It isn't far, only 30 minutes. Later in the afternoon we got new visitors; Merethe and Lasse, they have been here before and their blogg is linked from this page. They have a saluki; Halal and two sloughis; Ahad and Warda.
Today - Sunday we all had to go up early to go to a new show. Now I was beaten by Zara, my own daughter, she won Best Bitch (only 9 months old!!!), and another pretty bitch owned by some friends of us (kennel Hyrkanya) won 2nd, then me. Sterling won a "point CAC" I have no idea what it is but it is very good... It was many salukis and afghans today, it was fun to meet them all! As I understand we all did pretty well!
Now I am very tired and want to go to sleep in the sofa... Maybe I'll have something else to tell about tomorrow... Until then... good night!

Some time ago there were suddely a new dog in Sam's house. It is a black pointer mix, and his name is Hugo. Hugo is quite young and was found close to the highway by a roundabout. He lived there with is mother, his dog mother, beacuse they had no people of their own. They were both very skinny and looked for food in the garbage cans. The worst thing is that Hugo had probably been hit by a car, and had broken legs, both his hind leg and in the front.

Mummy has been away on a trip for several days. Far up north where we used to live before. Her is a picture showing how it look like up there now; snow and cold! Brrr... We are very happy to be here in the sunshine! When she was away we had some lovely lazy days. Daddy and I agreed that those long walks everyday are just silly, so we have been stolling around in the garden, laying in the sunshine and had a really nice time, almost like vacation!
But today she is back, so end of lazy days..., sigh!
But it was fun too because when she came Knodden was with her. Knodden is another member of our "pack", he has been in Norway to run lure cousing and go to some shows, but suddenly he came back! I think it is because it was too cold to be there now! Here he is, standing beside the beautiful red flowers that are still in bloom here. We were all very happy to see him and have been running and playing a lot all afternoon.
More tomorrow... bye bye!

As to be on a blogg is something "everybody" think is cool these days we too decided to create our own blogg! "We" are a bunch of hounds, more exacly 2 afghans and 3 salukis, at least right now... It happens one or some of us come or go visiting friends, etc, so sometimes we are several sometimes less... :-)
We had a big argue about what language we should chose, we are a bunch of mixed nationalities; Norwegian, English, American and Spanish, so finally we decided in English as more people from Norway understand English compared to how many English and American people understands Norwegian, and nobody understands Spanish! We also had a huge argue and finally had to vote about who is doing the writing on our behalf, and finally I = Teefah won, as I am the oldest and being the boss means nobody dare question my word.
We used to live in Norway where it was cold most of the time of the year. A little less cold and no snow in the time they call "summer" and very cold and lots of snow in the "winter". Then a year ago we moved to heaven! Here is no snow, and the sun shines 325 out of the 365 days of the year! Can you beleive? I lived 8 years up in the cold north, and to make the balance even I have decided to stay in the sun no matter how hot it is until I've been in the sun 8 new years! Sometimes the people here come and drag me into the shade when I am about to pass out in the heat, but as soon as I get a chance I go back! If there is one cloud in sight I hurry inside and curl up in the sofa, no chances taken here!
