No words can express how much I love this girl and how happy I am that I am hers! I hope that our journey will continue for many years to come.

For you who don’t know how our journey started here is a short story of it:

I first started to look for a saluki in spring 2015 but could not find what I was looking for in Sweden for months. So in June I started looking for a suitable saluki puppy in the rest of the Europe. This is how I came across Sven’s litter. We exchanged some emails and I got to know that there was only one female available (Oonah). At the same time I found out that I would need to leave my job after 8 fantastic years at Sony Mobile due to yet another re-org. Because of this I was not sure that I could take a puppy. So instead of buying Oonah already then I started following her and her siblings on the Facebook. Entire summer went by and Oonah was still available. Fall came and she was still available and for each day that passed I found her being more and more beautiful and me more and more wanting her to be mine. So in October I told David what my heart knew for days and he was as supporting as always so the same day I contacted Sven again and the rest is history.
