My knowledge of the
breed has come through my dear friends Ekaterina & Thomas, owners of
MultiCh. Reedly Road Enjoy The Silence aka Farik, sire of my beloved
Sawhorse's Hot As Hell aka Varenne who is a powerful but elegant
dog, energetic and intelligent ... with a marvellous temperament. He
is always cheerful and playful with dogs and people also just met.
An independent dog, but very affectionate.
Great leaper and always on the go... we call him "court jester"
because of his great sympathy at every opportunity.
The arrival of my first Pharaoh requested a lot of patience. I got
news from Ekaterina telling that in a litter in Finland there would
be my puppy. I was so excited! She put me in touch with the breeder,
Sara, who was enthusiastic about the possibility that her beloved
puppy would have lived in Italy.
Four long endless months !!
Sara decided to come to Italy to bring Varenne (his petname is
because of the "union of Italy & Finland" of the most famous
trotter). They arrived at the airport in Milan. My legs began to
shake so much that I had to sit down. It is really impossible to
describe the immense emotions when she picked out from the cage "that
red ball with those enormous ears"!
He began sniffing my eyes, mouth, ears with his long nose...
he did a study on me and then gave me a kiss as saying: "Ok, I am
fine, let's go!! "
Thus began my new adventure with a Pharaoh Hound. I soon realized that,
with him, the days are always different from each other. Varenne is
an excellent representative of the breed... a great life partner,
easy to learn, lightweight manner, elegant, precious and yes, even a
little '"mysterious" just like a real Pharaon!
