It has been a long time since we posted on the blog.... Social media is the fault of this as most of us post picture and the funny adventures of our azawakhs on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc.
A small recap about what happend in 2015 until today.
Fehed became Belgian and Luxembourg Champion :-)
We visited Christiane in April in Berlin, we had a lovely time, did a show and Esed and Fehed played with the azawakh family.
In June we visited the Azawakh JAS, in Bermatingen, it was a great event, we met old and new friends, got the chance to meet some of Fehed his youngsters from both litters and had great weather (over 30 degrees Celsius).
We travelled further to Italy and had lovely holiday, we stayed in a great B&B with a swimming pool. Esed and Fehed loved it there too, they could run and play, lounge next to the pool and played with the dog of Franseca, the B&B owner. Before we went to Milano, we visited Alberto Rossi, from the Tigidit Kennel. It was a great experience. And we loved to see al the dogs together.
We finally traveled to Milano, where we participated at the World Dog Show. Well to our surprise, Fehed behaved super in the ring and became second in the Champion Class! We were thrilled.
Then we travelled back home again. A good 1050 km back home in 12 hours, and then a few lazy days at home before we had to work again.
In July we had a photoshoot on the beach, made by Nuelle from FotoMelle!
We did some more shows with Fehed, and Esed always accompanies him for moral support :-)
And since last week, we have a new car, an Espace, with more space in the back for Esed and Fehed and who knows who else.....
We are Penny & Eric Karaspilios—Franssens and we live in Deurne near Antwerp in Belgium. As a child I’ve always had dogs and mostly sighthounds. In 2000 at last we had our own sigthound, Zino, a cross galgo from Spain. A few years later we took Chivas out of a dogshome near us. Chivas was a cross azawakh-greyhound and thanks to him we fell in love with this beautiful but very special breed the “Azawakh”. Sadly Chivas past away just two weeks before Esed arrived in Belgium.
