About few meters away from the best majlis that I have ever seen at the Falconry Festival held in Jahili Fort, I have spotted a dog in one of the corners of a simple tent. It was so surprising to find a dog included in the festival since it was all about falconry. I was about to click my camera to take some snaps when I heard Joel asking me "Mama, do you think that this dog is some kind of malnourished?" Before I replied to my son's question, I pressed the shutter twice. "Hmmm, maybe", I replied and we headed to the other tents and booths.
As soon as we arrived home, I check out the FB wall of ADACH (Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture and Heritage).I've found out that there were salukis included in the festival but most of them were present at the Falconers Camp. Right, I missed that part. My curiosity about the salukis led me to consult Mr. Google and here is the entry in Wikipedia. I came into conclusion that this dog is, in fact, well nourished :). I and my boys were happy about what we have learned on that day.
On another note, as much as I would like continue posting about the Falconry Festival, I am afraid that this is the last one because something happened yesterday. My 300+ photos were inadvertently deleted by my son. *Sigh* If you wish to see more of what had happened in the said event, kindly click the ADACH link provided above.
