TITIYO
On Tuesday morning, 10th of October, we lost our lovely TITIYO...
She will be forever loved and missed!

~~~

Our last highlights in 2006
Only shown at special occations, Titiyo was succesfull into the end...
**BEST IN SHOW** - Int All Breed KC Show in AMIENS, France
BEST BITCH, BOS - SKOKLOSTER - Specialty, Sweden
BEST BITCH, BOS - FALAPA - Specialy, France
Several Breed & Group wins during the year


Titiyo was a true show dog with an absolute afghan attitude and charisma.
Despite her young age Titiyo was a multiple champion and also already a champion producer!
Unfortunately she never got to finnish her two largest achievements...
...her French & UK titles, on which she had started so successfully.
But in the end, that doen't matter now. What matters is the inpact Titiyo made
on people we have met along the way, in all the countries she visited!


To all of You, who by calls, letters & flowers
Have shown your compassion & support
We are forever grateful. ~ Thank you!
