Opinion of the buyer

I'm glad to be the owner of Cyrenensis Mira Tina.
Tina is a Cirneco masterpiece with a very nice character.
You did a great job raising her to a healthy, well socialised and, for her age, very well educated Cirneco!
Tina grew up in house, between other Cirnechi. The best start she could get.
We were always welcome to visit the dogs, even before mating, and puppies as soon as they were born.
At least weekly we received nice pictures since the mating until Tina came home.
I want to thank you for the open communication and all advice already given and of not at least for all time and energy invested in raising Tina! If you are looking for a social and healthy Cirneco you should look no further!
Diana is serious breeder with knowledge of, and respect for the qualities of the breed ,never hesitating to share knowledge or give advice.

Dogs of sirocco color

I look at the mummy of Pharaoh in the museum. And I feel sincerely sorry for him. Not because he died. But because his death, this intimate moment of a powerful ruler, now exhibited, shown to us, mere mortals. Sacred remains disturbed moved from the tomb to the museum. He imagined his eternity by this way?

Sandglass already poured a lot of centuries. But all the same crazy wind sirocco like restless ghost of the past, is worn over the Mediterranean. This wind once stole favourite dogs of Pharaoh, and carried it with the storm of red sand to Sicily.

Dogs liked the life on the island. Fearless rabbits and any other game. Unfortunately, Cirnechi didn't not catch on the island plump dwarf elephants (Palaeloxodon falconeri). These elephants were only 90 cm tall and is an example of the phenomenon of island dwarfism. History is silent about why the elephant decided to go extinct before the arrival of Cirnechi ... But it was clear to us :-)

Probably Cirnechi also imbued with the idea of island dwarfism in its evolution. And have therefore grown much smaller than their relatives - Pharaoh Hound and Podengo ibisengo.

Cirnechi have been an eyewitness to a lot during these ancient times. Time has turned pharaohs into mummies, theaters into ruins, destroyed the empire, sunk into the deep straits of Messina monsters Scylla and Charybdis, and forgotten inhabitants of fiery Etna: Cyclops Polyphemus, the god Hephaestus and philosopher Empedocles ....

Only that wind of wandering, this old vagabond with a flute, whispers to my Cirneco about eternity and carefully updates the gilding on her fell ...... They have something to talk about and so many things to remember ... The dog breathed air, and led the nose on wind. She recognized him! I look at her turned wild eyes and see in them slightly opened wind blowing door to the past ....

Our mystical creatures, sometimes have cubs with the same mystical eyes :-)
