Thursday the 18th, Farao Anubis Ramhira Ziffa, "Ärtan" (which means "The little Pea") left for USA, all alone by air, to realize "The American Dream", and to meet her new owner Jan Butterworth, who also own the stunning PH male, LC & AMCh Kamaraj Ka Ziffa, of mostly Merymut bloodlines, which I admire so much.
The day after, Farao Anubis Ravishing Dream Electra, "Kickis" began her long journey, 16 hours by air, to join her halfbrother Farao Anubis Ram, and her new owner Taeko Nishijima in Japan. 

I really miss them already, but I wish them all luck in their important task which lies ahead of them! Which give me some comfort in my sorrow to part from them.

July 19th

Only Fifth week and Kahira is getting real BIG! I just wonder how many little individuals there is inside her...!?

July 9th

Kahira, Bibbis 
nipples are starting to look like raspberrie's in size and colour, so now I am quite sure she is having little ones inside, and I'm so excited! It really is like Christmas every time! Besides the early puppy stages, I think the nicest time is when I can start to feel them move and kicking inside her under my hand on her stomach!

July 7-8th, 2001

he Swedish Kennel Club held two big allbreed shows at the same weekend in the south of Sweden.We did very well, in spite of the extremely hot weather, the dogs had to be covered with cold and wet towels all day. And they really had pink "ties"! Lucky for us, the showground was nearby the sea and a beach where dogs was allowed, so we could swim and get some "cold comfort" in the evenings after the shows.

The first day Farao Anubis Ramses went BOB, Farao Anubis Aakhe was Best Male 2 and got his second CC, only ten months old! Antefas Kahira was BOS and Antefas L'Odéah was second Best Bitch. Seven entries.

Day two, the results was a little bit changed, but my Farao Anubis Ramses was still BOB, with his son Antefas Menkhar as Best Male 2, with CC and got his first CACIB (not shown this year) BOS was this day Antefas L'Odéah who also won her first CACIB (not shown at all for a couple of years) Antefas Kahira was second Best Bitch. Nine entries.
