Happy Birthday!

Batna gave birth to 5 female Azawakh on this day one year ago.
Nufoudah was the first born, she arrived at 11:41 a.m.  Daoud Abdullah Abdullah, the breeder, was on the phone with me at the time.  The last born was Hamra, at 5:28 p.m. Nufoudah was named after the Nufood desert in the Land of the Two Holy Places, Madinah and Makka, also known as the Saudi Arabian Peninsula. Safqa - one of the most precious dam lines of the asil Arabian strains on the island of Bahrain. Abaya - an abaya is worn by modest muslim women, a covering. Kehailat, later Kuhaylat (call name Kemma) is from the word 'khol', meaning the eyes are trimmed with dark pigment, like eyeliner. Hamra in Arabic means very red. Birth names are very important in the Azawakh. The first 2 photos are of Nufoudah, next two, Abaya, followed by two of Safqa, then the dam, Batna. Hamra now lives with DaNae Keys and Kuhaylat (Kemma) lives with Chastity Anderson.

The sporadic technical glitches persist. I see blank comments coming in frequently. Blogger needs to fix this, one of these days. Please email me if your comment does not appear.
