December 5, Helsinki Winner Show 2004! 
Almost 30 PH entries under the great judge Luis Pinto Texeira, Portugal. I'm of course very proud and happy for my young Ikaros "Plupp's" first big win! BOS, winner-title and Finnish CC, and second foreign CACIB, now he just need two Swedish CACIBs for his INTCH title! Finally Plupp has got it all together and started to show like the superstar in making he is:-) 
Both BOB & BOS wins are Cruft's qualifier at this show.

November 13, Swedish Sighthound Club, Borås, BOB & BOS
Ikaros "Plupp" won his first BOB and 3rd CC! It felt as good old times, as we also brought home BOS & Bitch CC with Kamaraj Dessie Belle bint Ramz "Dessie-Mus", at the same show! This being only her second time out at a show, ever! Judge Ingela Kyrklund with BOB & BOS pictured above.  8 PHs + 1 pup. 

November 7, Herning Int, Denmark, Nordic Winner Show 2004
Ikaros was 2nd Best Dog (after Tirith), with CACIB. Judge Karl-Erik Johansson, Sweden.

September 17, Our new litter is born!
They are here! The TEN little rascals, five males and five bitches, out of Lileo's Orpheus "Rufus" and Ch Farao Anubis Nemesis Divina "Blondie". They were born very fast, it took just 7-8 hours for all ten to be born!  They are very beautiful, and in a wide range of shades and types. Some are little Rufuses, some Ramsans and some Swedish looking, and three little blondes. They come in all PH-shades, from light blonde to dark reds. Four have white tail tips. All have very little white on chests, most won't be seen at all when adult. Some none white at all. More photos at "Next Litter" page!

Blondie finally decided for puppy box, after running from, and trying, two mesh-fabric-crates, one which I could fit in as well, to help her, and MY bed (not allowed to do it there), and sofa, and armchair. One was born in the huge mesh-crate. 

Nice people, who can offer a pup a wonderful and loving home, are welcome! A few puppies still available.

Vår nya kull är just född, 17e September 2004! Den är efter en ny spännande kombination! Trevliga valpköpare som kan erbjuda en valp ett underbart hem, är välkomna att kontakta oss! Några få valpar finns fortfarande kvar. Klicka här för mer info om kullen!

September 10, Dessie almost there at LC! 

Dessie got two of the three required coursing runs, for her license to compete at trials! Last third lap have to wait until her 18 months day. Dessie runs light and fast, and understood exactly what to do from first try ever! Quite a natural talent, who I'm sure will be a real threat at trials next spring!

September 2-3, Aakhe finished American Champion during the Eastern Specialty weekend! (pic above)
Aakhe won a five-point major to earn his American Championship today at the Tuxedo Park Kennel Club Show in Tarrytown, NY!  There were 19 Pharaoh Hounds entered (11 class dogs), and he took Winners Dog and Best Of Winners.  He also went Best of Opposite from open class, to Melody. 
Also, yesterday at the Eastern Specialty (41 Pharaoh Hounds entered), Aakhe was Reserve Winners Dog to Ramsan's Hallam son. The gorgeous Rams daughter Hallam's Essence Of Violet was WB and BOW some of the days.
