Zelda was shown on two days, and what a happy girl she always is in the ring… Heartfelt thanks to her handlers for the occasion Alessio Mocchi and Roberto Bongiovanni, and also to Federico Sanguinetti and Agnese Della Rocca for stepping into the ring with her when needed.
Italy’s current # 1 Afghan is soon off for a well deserved summer rest.

Thanks to each and every owner for bringing over and showing their own Gran Pamir Afghan and for helping in many ways, it was a special weekend for many reasons and probably Emanuela’s last show for a little while (it’s been a quiet but nice first half of the year with many nice results!). Couldn’t ask for more! Maybe only that our car would drive us home smoothly rather than stopping halfway at night LOL
