Ishtar was a lovley black and tan piebald Borzoi bitch who inherited her
father. Ch Windrift Kindred Spirit's exotic long head and lovely coat. She was
the fastest Borzoi I have owned to date and completed her oval racing
championship after she was 8 years of age.
All 6 of the pups from her 1st litter are performance titled with a Field

- Little Darkness was sold to Margery Armstrong who then, without notifying me,
placed her as a 'rescue'. If anyone knows who now owns her I would like to know
who they are and I would like to know how she is doing.
Many of the the nine pups from her 2nd litter (sired by group winning Ch
Silkenswift Cotopaxi FCh, SC) are also titled. From her final litter we have
Blaze and Flash who were respectively number 1 ASFA and AKC Lure coursing
Borzoi for 1996.

She always recognized her puppies and insisted on washing and cleaning
them in public, which embarrasses them as they are adults. Barnabas feels that having mom wash you
interferes with his Mr cool dog image.
