Our lifes with Salukis started by coincidence.
In 2003/2004, our main interest was horses, and we both started to work in Lotta
and Jack's stable.
There we got to know each other, and the Saluki! By the time we left, both of us
had to bring home a Saluki,
the littermates Xavier and Xanthia born in 2005. We stayed in touch, started
Lure Coursing training with our Salukis toghether, and eventually more Salukis moved in together with
both of us. The idea of starting
breeding Salukis together started to grow, but the idea was also a bit
frightening. A lot of responsibility and hard work! When Lotta asked if we wanted to join in her kennel, Caravan,
we finally decide and said yes.
We joined Caravan salukis in 2012 and breed one litter, Caravan D2-litter in
August 2012. Spring 2013 Lotta
had to move her kennel to Spain, and we couldn't continue as co-breeders, living
in a different country.
We applied for our own kennel name, and in August 2013 our name Qatiifah was
finally approved. We will continue our breeding in
"the Caravan spirit", just with a new name.
Caravan Qatiifah Bint Jabiya was one of the first Salukis to melt our
"Teefah" lived with Lotta in Aurskog when we worked there, and she really was
She is the grandmother of our "Ella" and "Pepper", and in honor of her contribution to our
love for the Saluki,
we decided to name our kennel after her.
