Two half brothers of Favi (same father - multi Ch. Koseilata's Dust on the Moon) are still available at Keep on Running kennel, in France. We saw them yesterday. They are really beautiful, and have happy & nice character, very curious and not at all impressed with the wide world. With their shiny black coat and white paws, they seem to be wearing smookings !

Last coursing of the year for Favi in Merksplas (B). Fifth, 2 points for first place in the first round, a second round against a very fast dog did not allow her to keep this beautiful ranking. She finally ends 11th/19 with 341 pts.
Favi participated in nine events this year, 8 Internationl, 1 national. without zny injury ! She won 2 CACIL, 1 RCACIL, 1 CACBL, 1CACP & 1 RCACP. Not bad for a beginner ! These good results, combined with those obtained in shows, enabled her to become "LAUREAT STANDARD PERFORMANCE" (homologation pending). We are very proud of her.

Sunday not really exciting at the Leuven dog show. See Shows page.
October 23th, 2011
Entered at the Westerlo Club coursing in Arschot, Favi received one of her worst rankings, placed only 11th/20 bitches. Despite of two excellent races, with fantastic arrivals and spectacular lure capture with brassoc, she didn't received more points than the dogs who were content to cast a glance toward the lure at the finish. We were a little sad because, increasingly, the real attitudes of hunting are no longer rewarded. But most important is that Favi has once again made two good races, without any injury. And overall, the results of her first season in competition, are exceptional.
October 17th, 2011
Once again, we had a stupid accident in the garden.
Playing with Favi , Indhira broke a finger. The nail had to be removed, and we hope it will not necessary to remove any finger.
His coursing season is of course finished, we hope she will return on the grounds in 2012 to finish his international lure coursing championship title.
October 15th & 16th, 2011
Week-end in half-tone in Lausanne. See Shows page.
A very good week-end again. On Saturday, we were at the international lure coursing competition in Amermont, with Favi . She made us very happy one more time, winning the 1st place with CACBL and her second CACIL in just one month ! We call her now "the Terror of the Grounds" !
Less chance on Sunday for Indhira. She finished only 11st / 15. And we were very dissapointed when, asking to one of the judge the reason of this unusual bad classement, he said: "your bitch is a show dog, she could not be able to do something well in lure coursing competition". We think that it is very sad to judge a dog firstly on its look, moreover than the "afghans" awarded today have only few hairs on the ears and the elbows!
On Sunday, Indiana, for her, was entered in Charleroi dog show. See shows page.
October 1st & 2nd, 2011
This week-end, Icyana was entered at the prestigious Eurosighthound, in Italy (more than 500 sighthounds). This Saturday, she got the RCAC from chilan judge M. R. Podesta (von Haussman kennel). Congratulations ! See shows page.
Today, IntaJeriko came to the racing track in Awans, he made his last "good race", and has now all conditions to get his coursing license. Welcome to the competition, boy !

During few holydays in France, we saw in the french magazine "Vos Chiens" that Abd El Shiraz kennel is actually placed second in the Afghan Hound breed at the "Grand Prix des Eleveurs 2011". As Indhira was only shown 1 time in France, this good result was achieved owing to Fabienne, Claude, and Raymond, due to their excellent performance on the french show rings with Icyana and Ismaïlia. Thank you again !

A great Sunday again in lure coursing competition for Indhira and Favi in Gerbéviller (F). Indhira was placed 2nd/7, with 336 pts, and she received the RCACP & her second CACIL ! Favi was also placed 2nd/13 with 357 pts. She got the RCACP & RCACIL.
June 11th & 12th 2011
An excellent week-end again for Indhira and Favi in Paray-Le-Frésil (F). Indhira was placed 2nd/6 with 352 pts, and she received the RCACP & RCACIL ! Favi was placed 4th/14 with 369 pts. As they are again both in the first part of the classement, we have to wait until end of april 2012 to receive their FCI International Working Certificate and enter them in the Working Class in show competitions.
Ismaïlia was also entered in that lure coursing, she finished unfortunately only 5th, with 344 pts, but she has also all the conditions to get her Working Certificate, except "one year & one day", like her sister. Good job, girls !
On Sunday, it was a first disappointment for Icyana. Entered in open class at the specialty show in Versoix (CH), she received only 2nd Very Good. It was quite surprising, as the italian judge, Mrs Zilli, has already placed her 1st Excellent in another show few months ago !

First official race for Indhira and Favi... at the international coursing in Laferté sur Amance (F). And encouraging results for our both beginners, despite a trial made very difficult by the presence of tall grass 40-50 cm.
Indhira was placed 5th Excellent/8, with 340 pts, and Favi 7th Excellent/10 with 344 pts
Ismaïlia finished 4th Excellent with 345 pts, one step closer to the International Working Certificate. Well done, Raymond ! (who was very courageous to come despite the death of her mother a few days ago, all our thoughts go to him and his family).
