My Personal Story:
Nabihah was founded by me in 2001 I was just 11 years old... I bred my first litter when I was 13 years.
Since my mum had dogs most of her life, I was bred into the industry. I grew up with dogs and started showing as soon as I was about 7yrs old.
My mum bred and showed Rhodesian Ridgebacks under the prefix "Skiska".
The RR's were nice but I always enjoyed seeing whippets in the ring and thus we bought our first whippet- a small black brindle bitch "Oakway Love Nkisses" from Jill Marks.
We showed her with a little bit of success, but we decided to breed her and have our first Nabihah litter, the chosen sire was Ch. Taejaan Ina Tuxedo, a couple of years after that we bred her to Ch. Countrywinds Whoze Ever (Imp USA), without a huge amount of luck we decided to do some more research.
By this time we had a few whippets come and gone, but then Jill Marks offered us the bitch Ch. Oakway Southern Belle. This is when it all started to change, we showed her successfully and then bred her to Ch. Marchpast The Emblem (Imp UK) and produced the ever increasingly popular Ch. Nabihah Numero Oono ET. However since he was an only child, the mating was repeated, and Ch. Nabihah Still The One ET was the result (also an only child).
These two boys have been my first champions, my first stud dogs, my first two Endurance Titled and are still competing successfully in the specialty and all breeds rings, since then, I have never looked back.
