Under construction!

 

2014

So another year is over and although it has been a quiet one waiting for the new generations to grow up, the Afghans of Gran Pamir have been successful in the several countries earning quite an amount of Cac/Cacib/Bob/Group wins/placing at all breed and specialty level and an All breed BIS added to several new Ch Titles. We would like to THANK their owners for the love they share with their (our) treasured babies, that’s the most important thing. Keep the Gran Pamir flag high!

Quite surprisingly we even ended the year with a #1 – and that’s
Jr Ch Inigo Imagika del Gran Pamir “Pawnie”,
# 1 Young Afghan in Italy 2014 – out of only 2 shows!

A nice accomplishment for a 11 months old who has been out in the ring only 4 weekends in her whole life – winning Puppy SBIS at the World Congress, Youth SBIS at the AHC Autumn Specialty and a Crufts Qualification for 2015, finishing the year as a Junior Club Champion.
More of the “Indiana x Kendall” and “Bellatrix x Onyx” babies to come in 2015…

Happy New Year folks, now off for a well deserved holiday!

Year is almost over but we still have a few brags left although the whole show year has been quiet, waiting for the new generation to grow up.

“Felix” now Multi CH Felix Felicis del Gran Pamir –

“Pawnie” Inigo Imagika del Gran Pamir –

It was a 3 day show but we only showed on Saturday (and that was enough) and then just relaxed with the dogs for the rest of the long weekend – they definitely had fun.

This was Pawnie’s debut in a nice Youth class as well as her second weekend of shows ever, at 9 months old. Her sister Parvati Palitha del Gran Pamir was placed 2nd with excellent critiques as well, we couldn’t be prouder of our sparkling girls Emoticon heart
Gran Pamir was also Best Breeders Group.

It was overall a nice though tiring weekend, special thanks to my “assistants” Noemi Mainardi and Giulia Cuccu Giuly’sDreams for their precious help! And always proud of my doggies

Varese International Show – Nov 3rd
Insubria Winner 2013″Felix” * CH Felix Felicis del Gran Pamir
CACIB & BOSNext time I’d rather see a judge judge (and touch) the dogs for not just 30 seconds and NOT drink coffee in the middle of the ring or chewing gums into the exhibitors face. IMHO I find it inappropriate and unfair to the exhibitors who pay $$ entry fees and spend hours on top conditioning their own dog, regardless of the results. Sorry, just venting for once!

This was probably Felix last Italian appearance, finishing 2013 as one of Italy’s Top Winning Afghans both systems, with multiple CACIB, BOB, Group wins.
Proud of our moody boy
