|We were given our first
Saluki in Iraq in 1961. She was a smooth given to us by an expatriate
going home; he had acquired her from the Sheikh of Kuwait's own kennels
as a pup, pictured here with our son. Having fallen for the breed we vowed
to have Salukis when we would return home, so in late 1969 we had our
first Saluki from the Tahawi kennels. Our foundation bitch was a semi
rescue pewter and white parti from the El Saluq kennels.
