CH. Aries Roussanne d'Avignon

Our boy Soliel went to some more shows this past weekend and won the Breed at all three, placing in the Group every day, thank you to judges Virginia Lyne, Greg Eva (from South Africa) & Bud Haverstock for his Group placements. Soleil faced many new competitors he hadn't met before which are normally shown on the British Columbia circuit. Congratulations to his mom, Fran and his handler Shaunna !

CH. Aries Northstar

New Champion Aries Northstar SC, follows his brother's footsteps and completes his title with a BEST OF BREED !
Frankie has seldom been overlooked during his show career, invariably placing in top competition and for this win he had to defeat a lovely dog who needs just one single point to finish and who has three Specialty majors ! Good work Nancy & Joe !

CH. Aries Jolie Blond

Congratulations to New Champion Aries Jolie Blond who was the first to finish this year with a four point major, quickly followed by her cousin Sylvio, then Starfire and now Frankie ! I'm very proud of them all and grateful to their owners and handlers for presenting them so beautifully. Well done Jarnell and Gary !

CH. Aries Roussanne d'Avignon

Venezuelan Champion Charmeine of Garden Lodge won RBIS to add to her eleven Hound Group wins making her the #6 dog all breeds in that country. Char has been invited to the Eukanuba Classic in Florida. Congratulations to her owner Mr. Mauricio Grez ! She is not yet two years of age.

Her brother, Canadian Champion Aries Roussanne d'Avignon won a Best in Hound Group, adding to his many Group placings on the way to his title and since finishing at just a year of age, congratulations to his co-owner Fran Mester.

Congratulations to Alison and Connie on Sylvio who is now an American Champion ! Sylvio is a son of Marie's brother, Aries Water Dragon and his dam is Ch. Paris Nights du Mont Isis imported from France from Christian and Veronique Eloy. His look-alike litter sister is Korean Ch. Aries Mimosa Carousel who in her first litter produced two sons which are BIS and RBIS winners from the puppy class. Brother Aries Bluegrass Carousel also recently won Best of Breed and sister Wisteria is now pointed.

Aries Jolie Blond was awarded a major by Australian judge Mr. Wayne Burton which was a very lovely compliment since Mr. Burton is a well respected personality in Afghan Hounds over the years having owned and handled the famous Australian Champion Calahorra Ishmael throughout an illustrious career. Congratulations to Blondie's owners, Jarnell and Gary !

Our gorgeous addition from Germany now only needs one single to finish in Canada. Real Good Feeling of Meadow Valley rushed through a show weekend sweeping all before her ! Blush is a daughter of the famous BIS & SBIS American Champion Regime's Picasso of Keystone and so typical of the houndiness he produces, thank you so much to Ria Wagner for letting Blush come to the States and also to Jacquie Whyte who conditions and handles her.
