Hello everyone :-)

We're still alive and kicking, even though there have been few updates lately.

This summer has been both busy (studying and working as usual) but also relaxing, having finally had some well deserved holidays.

And a couple of weeks ago we were in UK where Cinzia judged the YAHS show, click here for more!

Anyway, even though we're not showing right now, we have some nice news from last weekend.

Roma Specialty & International All Breeds Show

 

"Shining" - Shining Cloud del Gran Pamir - continues on his winning ways!

After achieving many Junior wins in the past months, last weekend was great again for him.

 

On the first day he won Specialty Best Young Male, over a nice class!

Unfortunately and strangely the judge didn't let the winners challenge for Best Youngster...

 

On Sunday he was Best Youngster and then went on to win Best Young Sighthound of the day!

We are very proud of this little young man and his loving owner Mrs Paola Pieri. Keep it up!!

3 months old "Pluffa, Cedric & Viktor" at home send their congratulations to their elder brother :-)

Our Sweet Cutie

Our Sweet Yoyo

"The Only One In Oriente"

has suddenly left us, too soon though,

leaving an empty space in the

house and in our hearts, but they will

be filled with her presence forever.

 

You'll be greatly missed by all of us

and those who knew you. 

You can now feel good again and meet those

who left us at the Rainbow Bridge.

 

You were the Sweetest Cutie,

our Little Dancer!

Firenze Specialty Show

 

Though not planned, we drove to the center of Italy to meet up with friends and

for Tuuli's 2nd Italian appearance, and under a sunburing hot weather she went...

SPECIALTY RCAC

for judge Guy Spagnolo, Australia

 

This was the last Specialty for a  while, no plans

have been made yet but she might be seen again in

Autumn hunting for this last Sp Cac.

 

Emanuela'd have loved an even cooler birthday present

from her, but this was already enough *grin*

We then had fun celebrating with cakes and drinks

so it was a nice day in the end ;-)

AHC Specialty Show, Padenghe Sul Garda (Brescia)

 

 This was our first outing in Italy in about 1 year.

Shown by Sergio who decided to give it a try, the stubborn girl

went into the ring, see how things turned out to be....

 

Open Class & later CAC Winner

 

Tuuli's critique:

"Very typical bitch, blonde with slight black mask.

Exc head with typical expression, dark eyes.

Correct scissor bite, exc underjaw. Good lenght of throat.

Exc shoulder and front angulation.

Exc brisket, depth and width. Exc upper line,

croup and rear angulation. Rich coat.

Very sound mover, covering a lot of ground, very balanced.

˛

We just want to say 'THANK YOU' to:

- Breeder-judge Mrs Iren Roher (Daruma's) for appreciating

Tuuli's "morphology and quality of movement";

- Lori & Nino for their hospitality and for standing the two Queens;

- our BIG group of suppporters and friends who cheered for her all the time!

- and last but not least to Jess for leading us to enter her :-)

Thank you for turning a bad day into a nice one!

˛

The Spring Specialty is notoriously the largest and main Specialty of the year. Now Tuuli is one Specialty CAC

away from her title. 2 are required; in Italy there are 6 Sp. shows all over Italy during the year.

 

Also Congratulations to 'Dasy' (Vain Jane) & Owners on winning the

"Beauty & Brain Trophy"

given to the Afghan who got the highest LC score and show placement during the weekend!

Some of you may wonder where we were gone :-)

Life has been hectic here for the past few months, with studies and work going on,

though the Italian showrings have not seen any of our own dogs for some 9 months now,

due to many reasons some of you may easily guess and know.

Time has been taken by many things, just to name one, the wonderful

Olympic Winter Games we had here in town in February. Emanuela has worked hard

in conjunction with them, beyond studying and being busy in designing

MANY ads you will be able to see (together with her much appreciated photos)

in the next months on several well known Breed publications, also reason why

The Afghan Hound Post has run slowly lately.

But Thank You all for your consideration! It is rewarding.

 

So the dogs have had a lazy time here, as you can see on our Website Cover.

Still, we've not planned any shows so far, also

because time will be taken until late spring by Emanuela's University studies and

then holiday time will come at last. If not before, see you in UK this late Summer!

Hopefully some more News will come later, so keep coming back :-)

 

And last not least, for those interested here is something off topic:

a Gallery of Olympic Photos!

 

                             

 

... And on January 27
