Update December 27th 2015
Truly we are blessed with wonderful families and extending our "framilies" of dog owners around the world. Our Salukis are settling into their new homes and their new life adventures and will likely be out in the show rings again soon. Our adult whippets and our whippet pups have found wonderful and loving homes and will be heading home soon, (we have one black and white male available to a show or pet home, and we have a 7 month old show male available to a show or pet home as well).
It is odd to settle in at night without the pitter patter of feet and stranger yet not to be packing up for shows and grooming and planning for the months to come. But we leave that now for our kids, and for the wonderful families that are picking up where we left off.
We will always have a dog or two underfoot. There will always be one in the bed or at the foot of the bed, always one to walk with me and do some obedience and we will likely get back to doing therapy work with our dogs like we did when we had giants. Like Chai it will grow old with us, unfettered by the pitter patter of puppy feet, no obligations to show or perform. It wont know the venom of a competitor that lost to us in the ring and then worse yet lost sight of the camaraderie and sportsmanship of showing dogs. Our dogs will continue as they began as mans best friend.
Our children, now grow adults in their own rights, will carry on Yashanti if they so choose. So this site will be kept updated for them until such time as they decide to move forward or go a different path. To all of our dog families we will remain as we have always been, here for you 24/7/365. Never doubt that.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all. To new adventures, to love and life and health. L'Chaim!

Earlier this fall I announced that we would be paring way down in dogs, it has been a heart wrenching experience to see my beloved babies head off to other homes, yet at the same time I feel as though we now have new extended family as so far everyone is adapting wonderfully and loving their new lives in their new homes as the center of a new universe. Life goes on we do the very best that we can do with the sadness in our hearts we have created joy and light for others. We still have several adults available and we are expecting our last litter of pups in the next week or so. Then we will enjoy our little sprites from afar for a while as we tackle new challenges. If you have an interest in our puppies or our adults please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I will do my best to answer your questions and if we dont have what you are looking for we will direct you to others who might be able to assist
October 2015 update.
It is with a heavy heart that I announce that Yashanti kennels has had to make the very difficult decision to part with a number of our adult dogs due to long term implications regarding Kent's health. All of these dogs live in our home under foot, as part of the family; the presence of these members of our family, while so loved, create a fall hazard for Kent, we cannot get out and show them as we used to and their daily interaction and exercise with us is less and less as time goes along. Showdogs require training, we do not have a kennel nor kennel help. and so we have made the decision to turn this part of our lives over to friends, fellow fanciers, and our kids. If you have any interest in owning any of our adult dogs please contact me directly.
No additional drama is needed. If you are interested in owning a truly awesome member of our family contact us please and we will begin a process to see if this is the right fit for all involved. If you are not interested that is fine as well, please do not pass judgement until you have spent just one day in our shoes. Those who know us know how heartbreaking this decision has been all the way around
