SHAYRAF GRAN PAMIR DE L'ISLE RARE "Shon"
Swanie's littermate "Shon" is competing at his first Lure Coursings and already achieves success... this time by winning the RCACL over top winning lure coursers! Way to go!
Well done Shon, Heini & Fabio!
We have just heard some news about our 17 months old only boy from the Faxe x Fabio litter,
Something that makes us very proud...
While waiting to be shown again, he's been spending some time as a Pet Therapy dog, giving love to those who need it and get it in return too! We're so proud of you, little "Bacio Macho"!
He's the first Afghan in Italy to do this...
Well done Marco & Kyber!!
His own page's coming soon...
Once again it is clear Gran Pamir breeds beautiful and very intelligent dogs able to make their owners proud, no matter what the "sector" might be: Shows, Coursing, Racing, Agility and now Pet Therapy!
And we have already 2 Record-holders from this litter, check the Records page!
-- Gran Pamir... multi pourpose Afghans! --
Official Regional Show in Sauze d'Oulx
During the very hot Italian summer, due to the lack of championship shows, the It KC and/or local Kennel Clubs arrange Open shows, that can be official (recognized by the It KC) or not.
Today we were at an Official Open show up on the mountains - more than 1500 m! And we showed Fabio & Tuuli.
Fabio won BOB & Group 2 and lost to the Whippet BIS winner in a tough group competition
for judge Mr Silvio Rivolta
Tuuli, at her second show ever, won BOS & BIS-2 Youngster over
20 other Youngsters (a real record!)
for judge Mr Peter Flynn Ronald (AUS)
And then Daddy & Daughter also won Best Couple of the whole show!
for judge Mrs Adriana Griffa
Below are some snapshots from the day...
