Midwest Specialty Weekend

Xzotika's Rik-O-Shay is off to a great start his first weekend out showing in the conformation ring with handler David Osuna.  Shay wins BOW for a 4pt major under judge Ole Nielsen from Canada.  Mr. Nielsen is a breeder judge.  His breeding stock is from the famed Dynasty and Sandina kennels back when 200 plus afghans would attend a specialty show.  It is a very nice compliment to our breeding program because we focus on breeding "classic type" not the more modern looking afghans that are dripping in coat.  Thank you Mr. Nielsen we appreciate your discriminating eye for afghan hounds.  Also, congratulations Mikki Razor for bringing Shay this far.  You've done an incredible job with him.  Shay's
future looks bright!

UKC Novice Agility title obtained.

Xzotika's Rik-O-Shay completes his UKC novice agility trial his first try.  It was a three day long competition and Shay showed the judges that afghans are a far cry from being untrainable dogs.  Shay scored 99 out of 100 two days and a perfect score of 100 on the final day of the competition.  A heartfelt congratulations to his mommy Mikki Razor for taking such excellent care of him.  We are very happy that our paths crossed and you believed in our dogs.  We are very grateful for all of your efforts with Mr. Shay!
