Pandora is home now, having completed her French Championship and gained additional CACIBs.  She has a litter, born Dec. 23, sired by a French charmer, U'Nes HaBedouim de Solemel.
Sufat is back home in France after having gained her Israel Champion title, and is nursing a litter sired by Bayud.
Sher has new puppies by Sahar which are looking very promising.
A number of these puppies will be travelling abroad when they are old enough - you will be seeing them at the shows!

July 24, 2004:
There has been much happening in the last months, both good and bad. 
The good:  lots of lovely puppies, a few staying here, and the others all going to wonderful homes both in Israel and abroad.  The breed is gaining more and more fans, and there are not enough puppies to go around.  Please be patient!  They are worth waiting for! And take a look at the details of the youngsters that are staying here.
Pandora and Sisi are presently in France with my good friend Laurence Aries, to go to some shows, and to come back in the future bred.  Laurence's wonderful bitch, Sufat Hol me Shaar Hagai, is here with me to finish her Israel Ch. and to be bred to Bayud.
The bad: Evie has crossed the rainbow bridge.  She died defending her young pups from a huge viper, one of the biggest I have ever seen.  But she saved her pups and killed the snake.  She leaves behind a great legacy in her puppies.
