Pharaoh Hounds - week 26Updated : 22/06/2017

PHEW! WHAT a scorcher last week’s weather was if you were in the right (or wrong) place! I think 31C was just a tad too much for the hounds, who were reluctantly reduced to short walks after 10pm or before 8am. Temperatures were nearer normal up in the Borders and beyond, so much more comfortable there I expect. The su...

Pharaoh Hounds - week 24Updated : 08/06/2017

MISS HAAPANEIMI from Finland was the judge at Southern Counties and she awarded DCC and BOB to Morris’ Tonispada Ozymandias Anharbn, who later earned a G4 from Rodney Oldham. RDCC was Fletcher and Merryweather’s Ch Vaskurs Linford Christie Skumpanson at Ynchreenoo.      The Isle of Man couple...

Pharaoh Hounds - week 23Updated : 01/06/2017

ANOTHER sad note to open with this week – Antony Bongiovanni’s bitch, Ch Ankors Enenet-Hemset (Saba), has died at 12 years old. She was bred by Antony ex his top-winning bitch, Ch A Behutet ex Gnejna Designer Label by A, condolences to Antony and John.      At the PHC championship show judge ...

Pharaoh Hounds - week 22Updated : 24/05/2017

A SAD NOTE to open with this week: Barbara Brooker’s bitch Zephyr succumbed to old age recently and the necessary decision had to be made. Zephyr was Ch Lyncris Til There Was You at Barab (Ch B Bronze Bucephalus ex Ch Ezhar Rough Quest at L), bred by Christine and Glyn Dawson in 2004; condolences to Barbara.  &nb...

Pharaoh Hounds - week 20Updated : 11/05/2017

“MAY THE Fourth Be With You”, an appropriate quote, overworked for the National as that day proved to be a cloud-nine experience for Sadie Thomas and her bitch, Annatefkah Theema at Rubasu. She won her third and crowning CC from judge Mike Caple, handled expertly again by Rebecca Dobson.     ...

Pharaoh Hounds - week 19Updated : 04/05/2017

NOT A BAD day out at Malvern for WELKS. The weather was cool and cloudy with a bit of drizzle half way through breed judging, but not enough to warrant going inside.      Jenny Startup awarded the DCC to Fletcher and Merryweather’s Ch Vaskurs Linford Christie Skumpanson at Ynchreenoo. RDCC was Reev...

Pharaoh Hounds - week 17Updated : 20/04/2017

BRIEF notes this week: Great results for Serena Parker with her co-owned dog Ch/Ir Ch Serenaker Sirocco at the Combined Canine Society Easter Spectacular held in Dublin. On the Saturday at the International show judged by Liz Cartledge, he was awarded GS, CACIB and BOB, giving Rocky his international title.   &nbs...

Pharaoh Hounds - week 16Updated : 12/04/2017

HERE I am again, catching up on the breed notes after a bit of a busy spell at home and also not a lot to report on anyway since Crufts.      Firstly, sympathy must go to Alexandra and Barry Cole (Doucai) who had to say a sad goodbye to their boy Zante at the end of March. He was Birkhall Barazinbar and ...

Pharaoh Hounds - week 12Updated : 16/03/2017

WELL, THAT’S done and dusted, Crufts now out of the way! After a very long wait, Pharaohs eventually got in the ring just past 4pm – just as everyone else was packing to leave. How the Saluki judge managed to make her judging last six hours I don’t know but with another breed still to be judged in the same ...

Pharaoh Hounds - week 10Updated : 02/03/2017

HERE WE are – Crufts time – it sure does come around quickly! I know, once a year, but it’s the event most of us get excited about whether it’s for the dogs or the ‘shopportunity’! I hope you and your hounds have a really enjoyable time.      Lure coursing is a sport w...

Pharaoh Hounds - week 7Updated : 09/02/2017

IT SEEMS this cold weather is not going away too quickly, and when combined with dull clouds and mist, the days can be a bit depressing, especially those who suffer SAD. But when the sun shines through it does put a spring in the step. I think our wildlife is beginning to wake up in the hedgerows as the girls take a great in...

Pharaoh Hounds - week 6Updated : 02/02/2017

RECENTLY, news came of the death of a well-known dog who had lived out his later years in California. Bred by Lori Evans, Multi Ch Xo Spectacular Spectacular (Int/Multi Ch Sovrin Superman ex Katobi’s Kryptonite) was a successful show dog and sire of some quality offspring. Rave or Ray as he was known, was born in the U...

Pharaoh Hounds - week 5Updated : 27/01/2017

I’M A BIT late with the Manchester results as the copy deadline was the same day as the hound and terrier groups, but in case you’ve missed them, here goes:  Keith Pursglove awarded BD and BOB to the Thomases’ Annatefkah Thoth at Rubasu and RBD was the litter brother, Annatefkah Tum.    ...

Pharaoh Hounds - week 3Updated : 12/01/2017

HAPPY new year to anyone I’m just catching up with!      Not much to report at present. There’s a few germs doing the rounds but so far, touch wood, we’ve managed to avoid the lurgy, although I hear one or two of you haven’t been so lucky, so do get well soon. We’re in fo...

Pharaoh Hounds - week 1Updated : 29/12/2016

HELLO EVERYBODY and a happy new year to you and your hounds; I hope you all enjoyed the phestive season without too much over indulgence. We’re having nice cold, bright days now for the hounds to exercise us in–- so boots on and out to work it all off!      News from the ‘Doucai&rsquo...

Pharaoh Hounds - week 51Updated : 14/12/2016

THIS WEEK we say ‘thank you and well done’ to the stalwarts who annually maintain their presence at LKA, valiantly filling out the AVNSC classes with an entry of about seven Pharaohs.      Their judge was Tan Nagrecha who picked Reynolds’ Annatefkah Tumaini as RBD, his mother Ch Annat...

Pharaoh Hounds - week 50Updated : 07/12/2016

AT THIS time of year there’s not a lot of activity to report on and no-one sends in anything of interest I can relay to you, so I wondered if a bit of breed history might fill a few lines. I’ve recently been delving into club records going back to the year dot and these statistics might be enlightening for the ne...

Pharaoh Hounds - week 48Updated : 23/11/2016

JUST BRIEF notes this week as all seems quiet on the Pharaoh front. Some open show results: On a sunny, but freezing cold Saturday, Huntingdonshire CS held its show in an equestrian arena where you had to keep walking around to keep the dogs warm. So, despite her shivering, my Lyncris Dizzy Miss Lizzy of Kurriera won through...

Pharaoh Hounds - week 46Updated : 10/11/2016

THIS WEEK, Glyn Dawson (Lyncris) has sent this in – and it sounds like a great event with all the competitors being well rewarded for their achievement in reaching the final. There were some fantastic dogs present, surely all deserving of a place:      “Christine and I had an unforgettable ...

Pharaoh Hounds - week 45Updated : 03/11/2016

SO, WE’VE come to the end of this year’s championship shows (where it counts for Pharaohs) with Midland Counties winners being Jill Morris’ Ch Annatefkah Tabitha Anharbn who took BCC, her eighth, and BOB. DCC was Dawson’s Ch Kurriera Orlando at Lyncris, without doubt making him top Pharaoh for 2016 wi...
