Sadik Salukis!

Solaris is from my 2000 litter, sired by Ch. Sadik Ananda Damisi CD, JC x Ch. Sadik Midnite Aurora JC. He finished his conformation title from the Bred by Exhibitor class and has enjoyed a limited, yet very successful show career as a champion. His wins include two Best in Specialty wins, one Best of Opposite Sex in Specialty and numerous Award of Merit wins under a wide variety of judges. He has light, floating movement and is impeccably sound.

Solaris winning a major!

At just under two years of age, Solaris won his fourth major at the Long Beach Kennel Club show at the American Saluki Association Supported entry! He is pictured here with that win and was Winners Dog and Best of Opposite Sex over specials under judge Gene Vacarro.

He also won his first points from the 9 - 12 month puppy dog class at the Rio Hondo Kennel Club show (San Angeles Saluki Club supported entry) under judge Vaccaro and another one of his four majors was earned under breeder/judge Katrina Hamilton (Khiva Salukis and Whippets).

Solaris winning High in Trial!

Solaris is pictured above winning High in Trial for the first leg of his Companion Dog title at the Saluki Club of America Western Regional specialty in October 2005. This extremely versatile boy went on to not only complete his CD, but he also won two other High in Trial awards. In 2007 he earned the American Saluki Association's Rancho Gabriel Novice trophy for the novice Saluki with the highest average score in obedience and the Chamois Trophy for the Saluki with the highest total score!

Solaris wins the specialty!

(4/10/2009) Solaris wins BEST IN SPECIALTY SHOW from the Veteran Dog class at the San Angeles Saluki Club Specialty show under Dr. Goran Bodegard (SWE)! Not only did he win the specialty, he also won the Veteran Sweepstakes earlier in the day under Mr. Tom Powers. A clean sweep for my number one boy!

Solaris won his first specialty at the Central Arizona Saluki Association Specialty show in February 2006 under breeder/judge Robert Place.

JJ and Seca win at the Western Hound Show!

In April of 2010, judge David Miller awarded Sadik Akhtar Piece of My Heart Reserve Winners Bitch from the Bred By Exhibitor class at just fifteen months of age at the San Angeles Saluki Club supported entry at the Western Hound Club show. Another Solaris progeny, my SBIS Ch. Sadik Seca Wind JC, gathered an Award of Merit the same day. Both of these dogs epitomize what I was hoping to get when I used Solaris at stud.

True love!

No matter what we were doing or where we were at, Solaris was my ideal companion, my heart dog. I will miss him forever, but rejoice in seeing him in his offspring and their descendants.
He was, truly, a once in a lifetime dog.
