Goodbye Sweet Kira

While in Oklahoma City to attend the dog shows and visit some of Victor’s friends in the area, we received a phone call from our friend who was petsitting for us that weekend.

Victor’s girl Kira, who had turned 11 years old this past February, had passed away in her sleep during the night. Kira was the daughter of Victor’s first two Borzoi – Snapper (CH Chataqua’s Rai Snapper Mahadi CGC CD FCh) and Abby (CH Chataqua’s Abby Iva Woodcreek CGC FCh).

Kira was still having fun on the coursing field as an occasional entry in AKC trials. Her most recent appearance was at the Lone Star Whippet Club trials in Ferris, TX, where she enthusiastically snatched the bunny during a muddy run, and performed a little “happy dance” after she released the bag.

She will be fondly remembered.
