Hi, I am Cécile DUFLOS.
I used to breed Afghan Hounds (Our latest one, BAKARA'S CELINE, 12 years old, daughter of American Import SHARJA SHINING EXAMPLE and Spanish Import HUILACO'S JORDANAH left us the 2nd of August, 1999).
On the photo of April 1998, you can see 3 Generations of BAKARA'S Greyhounds (from right to left grand mother, mother and daughter and on the front one of our puppies born in 1998).
From Right to Left :
BIS, Italian, International Champion BAKARA'S AMANDA (Italian Champion Rondelin Mo Hawk of Solstrand x Italian, Spanish Champion ROMANE - Our foundation bitch), 12 years 1/2 old on the photo.
BAKARA'S ELISA (Solstrand Vibart at Bareve x BIS, Italian, International Champion Bakara's Amanda), 9 years old on the photo.
International Champion BAKARA'S ILONA (Italian, International Champion Bakara's Arthur- brother of Amanda x Bakara's Elisa), 5 years old on the photo.
On the front, BAKARA'S OANA (Australian Champion, European Champion 1998 Xilone Black Jack x Bakara's Elisa), 3 months old on the photo.
The BAKARA'S line started in 1985 with the first litter. In 32 years I produced only 14 litters with success for the dogs exhibited.

At Dog Shows
Greyhounds at BAKARA'S are selected for the Shows but above all
they have a family life and they are our best companions.
The old lady BAKARA'S AMANDA, whose 13th birthday was on November 1998, the 25th, used to live in the living room and the kitchen till her death.
Same life for the latest one and missed BAKARA'S OANA, who passed over the rainbow bridge at age of 13 years and 11 months, the 2nd of January 2012.
And all the others have their own bedroom with beds and sofas for the night.
During the day they live in our property of 8.000 m2. and relax in their dayroom.
The young are born in the living room. So they are familiar with the different noises, with the people and are well conditionned for their future life.
When they start to walk they explore the garden and at about 1 month 1/2 they go in a large park to develop their body.
AS YOU CAN SEE I AM VERY PROUD OF MY GREYHOUNDS.
BUT BESIDES BEEING BREEDING OR SHOWING QUALITY, THEY ARE ALL LIVING PETS !!!
It is not possible to think about the two litters born in 1998 without speaking of the wonderful young boy imported from Australia : Australian Champion, European Champion 1998 XILONE BLACK JACK.
would like to introduce you too Import from Sweden, the blue
brindle Swedish Champion HICKORY'S NAUTICUS. He won the Skokloster
show in 1998.
I would like to thank Bitte AHRENS, breeder of the famous kennel SOBERS in Sweden for offering MARVIN. He is the proud father of a litter born the 18th of October 2000.
