Skokloster PH & Sighthound Specialties!

We are very happy and pleased to announce that at the PH specialty our young (not yet two years old) up and coming star Farao Anubis Aakhe, "Åke", won Best Dog, CC and BOS under Merymut's handler Marjory Williams! Aakhe was also Best Working Class PH in Show. And our Ramses Progeny Group won Best In Show group! Kahiro won Best Young PH in Show! Kahira was placed Best Bitch 3rd. Nemesis Divina placed 3rd out of 7 in Junior bitches.  Not less than 44 PH's was entered. 

At the Sighthound specialty Aakhe was placed as Best Dog 5th, out of 33 entries, under Joan Goldstein.

At the Lure Coursing trial both Aakhe and Kahiro did very well, and was placed 3rd and 4th out of 11 entered PH's, of which several was LC Champions. 

On our way home we visited a long lost son of Ramses, I haven't seen him since he was a small puppy. What a surprise! It is always nice with pleasant surprises! Four years old Farao Anubis Ra is the very image of his famous father! Big, dark and beautiful, with a superb front, and super movements. And he is off lead most of the time, and very well behaved, and has never been sick a day in all his life. I would do almost anything to get that super beautiful dog back, but unfortunately for me, his owner loves him;-) But he will come out at shows occasionally. Pictures of the two "clones", father & son together (of course they became best friends from the first second), coming soon!

May 4th-5th

In USA, 
Safi , Farao Anubis Ramhira Ziffa, did a fabulous job this weekend! She won big on Saturday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
Puppy Bitches: 1st
Winners Bitch: 1st
Best of Winners: 1st
This gave Safi a 5 point major! So, she now has a total of 6 points. There
were about 21 bitches that she beat and I think about 17 dogs she beat!!!!!! (Safi is only 8 months old!)
On Sunday (the Trenton Specialty, 83 PH's), Safi came in
second in the Puppy bitches 6-9 months Sweepstake class, and in the regular Puppy bitch 6-9 months class she came in second also.
But, it was certainly Safi's weekend! 

Ramsan's & Kahira's granddaughter Antefa's Naomi-Nekhebi won the 6-9 months class at the Trenton Specialty! And was placed as Reserve Winners Bitch after Safi, on Saturday! (Naomi is only 7 months old!)

April 28th

Great news! Our girl in USA, 
Safi (Farao Anubis Ramhira Ziffa) won her first point today!
First Safi won the 6-9 months class, then she won Winners Bitch, and then Best Of Winners, and then ended up as BOS (Best of Opposite Sex) ! Only 8 months old!
4 PH's were entered, both American and "Swedish" ones, but Safi was the youngest! 

April 20th 
Ramsan wrote  breed history (I have to give him a pen set soon:-)when he gained the Swedish Lure Coursing Champion title as the first and only (to date) Swedish Pharaoh Hound ever! A super day (sunny and hot) on a field in the south of Sweden. But it started bad, with a broken car, as usual! 
I never thought we could make it to the trial in time (or at all) that day, and begun to give it up! 
Ramsan, Åke, Kahira & I arrived with friends to the trial, in the last minute! I just got a quick glance at the starting list, and which colour they should wear! Seven PH's were entered, 4 males and 3 bitches, most of the Swedish breeders were represented. 

1st Ch Farao Anubis Ramses won with 71,25 points
2nd  Farao Anubis Aakhe, 70,50 p
3rd  Faouziah's Ankhcheperure  70 p
4th  Ch Antefa's Kahira  68,50 p
5th  Ch Enigma Joyful Spirit  67,75 p
6th  Ch Farao Anubis Sibuna  65, 25 p
7th  Ch Siphra's Super Trouper  62,75 p

In Germany my Estonian "twins" Jebbe (
Farao Anubis Nemesis) & Blond Farao Anubis Mossad) won BOB & BOS, CC's, CACIB's and the German Winner title, "Berlin Sieger -02"! Judge Kari Järvinen.

April 14th

Safi was shown in USA for the first time this weekend! She behaved very well and won her class "Puppy Bitches", and went on to Winners Bitch, to compete with the grown ups for the points. 

In Sweden young 
Viggen won his third CC and ended up as BM-3 after two Antefas champion males, and Nemesis Divina, Blondie, was BOS Puppy, all at a sighthound club show in Skara, near where we live.

April 7th

We were at the coursing track today, and Kahiro "
Viggen" ran his last required lap to get his LC-license!

April 1st(!)

Aakhe, L'Odéah & Menkhar got their Lure Coursing licenses, and Kahiro just need one more run to get his! So, soon I will have 6 PH's to start at trials, exciting! 
Hopefully we in Sweden soon get together 12 entered PH's at the trials, so they will provide the breed with 2 LC-certificates at each trial, one for the best dog, and one for the best bitch! 

Little Blondie and Isbjörn also tried to catch the "rabbit"! They ran very good their first time they "raced" in their life, though even puppies in training must have muzzles on at coursing nowadays, due to the Swedish wildlife protection rules.

 March 8th
