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...

Pharaoh Hounds - week 44Updated : 27/10/2016

I START my notes this week with the death of two Pharaohs. At Jill Morris’ Anharbn kennels, at the age of 14, Fr/Lux/Bel/Dutch Ch Anharbn Ankahesamun (Willow) has died. She was shown mostly in Europe but did also achieve four RCCs in the UK. Fourteen’s a good innings but the oldies are so hard to say farewell to ...

Pharaoh Hounds - week 43Updated : 20/10/2016

AT SOUTH WALES Jane Barrett-Williams had a tiny entry in Pharaohs of just three – with one absentee to deduct. Geographically, exhibitors are spread quite far and wide in the west but this is less than one would expect, especially as the judge is from the club list.      BD and BOB was Marie Rich...

Pharaoh Hounds - week 41Updated : 06/10/2016

AT THE club open show Jenny Dove awarded BIS to the Dawsons’ Ch Kurriera Orlando at Lyncris, what a great year this young dog is having. RBIS and BB was Jill Morris’ Ch Annatefkah Tabitha Anharbn. BV and RBB was Ollie’s grandma, Ch Lyncris I’ll Follow The Sun, who is nearly 11 years old now. BP was Do...

Pharaoh Hounds - week 39Updated : 22/09/2016

APART from an early rain shower on the Friday, what a lovely weekend for the last of the summer’s big general shows. I think the Darlington venue at Ripon Racecourse is one of the best and it is so well laid out and organised, I’m sure the committee deserves a thumbs-up from most exhibitors. If you’re able ...

Pharaoh Hounds - week 37Updated : 09/09/2016

AT CITY of Birmingham DCC and BOB was the Dawsons’ Ch Kurriera Orlando at Lyncris, but no group place this time. BCC was Dunhill-Hall’s Ch Reedly Road Legacy. RBCC was Thomas’ Serenaker Cierzo at Rubasu and they also took RDCC with Annatefkah Toth at R. BP was Cole’s Ta Skonju Gawra of Doucai. There w...

Pharaoh Hounds - week 35Updated : 25/08/2016

THE WEATHER at WKC was reliably predictable for hound day as it started very wet and the rain didn’t clear until mid-afternoon. Such a shame because for the few days ahead of the show it was sunny and warm for the campers among us. It also meant that the stall holders on the upper level of the showground didn’t s...
