My MSBIS Ch. Sadik Solar Flare CD, RN, JC (left) sired the fifth Sadik litter out of my Ch. Lorrequer Illusion at Sadik JC (right). This was a large and vibrant litter of nine puppies. So far four of the offspring have obtained their bench titles.
Seca and Briza are referred to as "The Spot Twins" and were the cutest pair of pups. So much so, that I couldn't decide which to keep, so I kept them both! Seca is MSBIS Ch. Sadik Seca Wind JC and Briza is Ch. Sadik Briza Wind JC. Click on their names to see and learn more about each of them.
Danny is Sadik Halibra Cirocco Wind and was owned and loved by Linda Hopwood of Dallas, Texas. Danny was shown only a few times, but his career was cut short by a broken front leg. Linda says he was, by far, the sweetest dog she has ever owned in her 32 years of sharing her life with salukis. He also acted as the "referee" of the household and ensured that order is always in the court. While it would have been nice for Danny to become a champion, Linda says he lived a very cherished life in the years she was blessed with him.
Ch. Sadik Taku Wind is owned and loved by Maria Cotter of McComb, Michigan. Taku finished his championship with ease, shown by his good friend Karen Butler. Taku is the ideal friend and companion along with being a fun dog to show as icing on the cake!

Sam is Sadik Samiel Wind. He lives in the great state of Texas with Roger and Sally Ann Davis. According to Sally, Sam loves ducks. He has a favorite stuffed duck ("Duck-Duck") which he carries around and sleeps with, and he loves to just sit and watch the ducks that live just on the other side of the fence from his yard and is quite protective of them! He is pictured above in his role as the The Great Duck Protector. Like many in the Wind litter, Sam is a hugger and will stand up on his hind legs and join his human family in a group hug whenever the occasion calls for one.
