Stockholm, SKK International all
breed show, Nordic Winner Show Dec 10 & 11
Roger did it again! And really
striked this time with Best Male
in a really tough male class, BOB,
Best Of Group
and Best In Show 4!
This is the highest we have placed at this show, since
Ramsan won the historic first ever
groupwin for a PH here in 1998, at what was the last time
ever the pharaohs competed in the right group, the
10th/Sighthounds. 25 PHs was entered for skilly Norwegian
sighthound specialist Knut Blutecher.
first Swedish CACIB too, and NORDW-11 title.
Ragnar, F A Icarus, was
Best Male 4th.
F A Infra Red, Päshis was close to
the top with her Best Bitch 2nd
in tough competition, with what will become the CACIB, as
1st bitch is INTCH. Our breeders group was Best PH group and
later in the finals BIS-4 breeders Group!
Thousand thanks to the very experienced and talented group
of PH people who helped me show them, as all four dogs are
mine: Annica Lundqvist with
Maria Evteeva with Millie, Eva
Olofsson with Päshis! And in the
final we had to cope with just two people, me mand Masha,
showing them all, the young wild and hardly trained dogs.
Missed the pre-judging, as I was still in the group with
Roger winning it, and the other three were in their crates
sleeping, we dragged them all out and ran straight into the
ring, and still we managed to get that placement! Quite an
accomplishment, I think :-) Judge was Monique van Brempt,
Belgium. Judges for Group and BIS was Marianne Holmli,
Norway, and Rainer Vuorinen, Finland.

Helsinki, Finland Dec 3 & 4, Finnish Winner Show & Helsinki
Winner show 2011!
Second day, and the main show, Finnish Winner, and Crufts
qualifier. The pharaohs had skilly Carla Molinari as judge,
an old favourite of mine, since the prime time of my old
super stars Ramsan and Bibbi, who she often placed BOB/BOS
and liked very much. Anyway, today there were 29 entries
(about 8000 totally) Roger was again Best Male in tough
competition, and got the FINW-11 title & CACIB. Ragnar won
his class, got FINJW-11 title, Crufts qualified, and the CC,
he was best Male 3rd, after the two champions. Millie won
her class, got same as Ragnar, title + Crufts Qual, and was
Best Bitch 2nd! Päshis was entered this day, and was Best
Bitch 3rd. Our breeders group with the 4 abovementioned
dogs, was best PH group and later BIS 3 group in the finals!
Thank you judges Carla Molinari and Hans Lehtinen! What a
weekend we had! Got SEVEN titles in two days, on three dogs!
First day, Helsinki Winner, we had 3 PHs entered under
Finnish judge Säde Hohteri, who had totally 28 PHs entered.
The judge being a totally new accuaintance for us, but a
very plesant one. To our great joy our stunning Roger, Ch
Farao Anubis Golden Gait, was Best Male, got the winner
title, the CC for his Finnish Championship, yet another
CACIB, and was finally Best Of Breed! Shortlisted in group.
But we had also our two juniors with us, which did very well
during the weekend. Both won their classes over several
juniors, thus giving them the HEJW-11 titles. Ragnar, F A
Icarus, was also placed as Best Male 4. Millie, F A Ikara,
got all the way to Best Bitch 2nd, with CC.

been possible! Judge Hans Lethinen.

Naqada kennel in England still have two very nice looking
puppy boys looking for homes from our and Marie Richmond's
Naqada PH's, breeding between Farao Anubis Golden Gait x
Farao Anubis Shakira. They are born July 13th, and are now
12 weeks! They both are very promising. Please contact Marie
for more info: firstname.lastname@example.org
Skokloster Sighthound Show, July 25
One of our biggest dreams was fullfilled today! Roger, Ch
Farao Anubis Golden Gait won, as the first pharaoh hound
ever, Best In Show at this once the world's biggest
sighthound show, and still one of the more prestigious shows
to win, anywhere! I've visited it almost every year since
first time when I was a kid in 1986 (but the show has been
held longer than so, for about 35 years) and of course
always just dreamed of winning it, even the times I was in
the BIS final before, with Ramsan, Bibbi and Plupp. And with
our 5th BOB win here, we managed to get the "top honour"! We
got a change of judge in pharaohs, from Sharon Sakson to
Espen Engh, who judged the 28 PHs knowledgeable and very
fair as always. Roger was BOB, Plupp was 2nd Best Dog & BOB
Veteran, later in finals BIS2 veteran. Thank you so much to
Simon Hansen who helped showing my dogs, a lot! And to
Polina Spasovska and Oksana Arupa who also helped showing in
our breeders group and best bitch. We had our keeps from our
last litter shown for their first time and BOB puppy & later
Best In Show puppy, was our 7 months old F A Icarus
"Ragnar", who won this just as his sire and namesake did in
2003 at this show. BOS was his sister F A Ikara, expertly
handled by Simon. In bitches our F A Infra Red, Päshis, won
Champion bitches and then went onto a Best Bitch 2nd. Rosie,
F A Ipanema won her class but wasn't placed in Best bitch,
were four are placed nowadays, just as in the group finals.
Our breeders group was best group of two, and then placed
BIS 3 group in the finals. The finals were all judged by
different foreign US, UK and Norwegian judges, but Espen
Engh judged the BIS. I will remember and treasure this day
and moment for the rest of my life, and it will make it
easier living when I have less good times. Thank you, Espen!

We need to find really great homes for a few of our
beautiful and loved family members:
HEJW-10 FINJW-10 Farao Anubis Ipanema "Rosie"
1½ year old bitch by F A Ikaros x Ch Faouziah's Champagne.
SweCh FINCh FINW-10 Farao Anubis Infra Red "Päshis",
2 years old (by Ch F A Kahiro x Ch Hallam's F A Elodie
Ramzi), CC & BOS at Crufts 2011, BOS at Skokloster
Sighthound Specialty 2010, BOS at Finnish Winner Show 2010.
and the new boy puppy: Farao Anubis Icarus, "Ragnar",
6 months old (by F A Ikaros x Hallam's F A Elodie Ramzi).
I'm only letting them go to the perfect homes, such as
preferably experienced pharaoh hound homes, show homes and
who want to do a lot of fun things with their dogs. They're
all totally healthy and haven't been ill a day in their
lives. Happy and people loving. Works well with dogs and
cats. More photos of them at their personal pages under "My
Pharaohs". Sorry, I dont have any really good pictures of
July 13: The new litter is here! Well, not here, but at
Marie Richmond's Naqada kennel, in UK!
Our Gulan, Farao Anubis Shakira (Lileo's Orpheus At Serafin
x Ch F A Nemesis Divina), whelped 4 males and 2 bitches on
July 13. There probably are some male puppies available.

June 5, Roger BIS at The Pharaoh Hound Club Specialty Show
Once more we made the long trip over to England, as I just
can't resist showing at their main shows, especially since
they often have great judges. Theres no shows like the
English anywhere in the world, you really can feel that this
is the main dog land of all, and where it all started, and
the judges are mostly great, and the face judging is kept to
a healthy minimum, all of which makes it trilling and
attractive to enter. You can get anywhere as long as you
have a great dog, which is sadly not the case in many
countries nowadays. Roger/Farao Anubis Golden Gait was Best
In Show, gaining his 2nd English CC under wellknown judge
Dagmar Kenis Pordham who had 45 PH entries. Plupp/Ikaros was
Best Veteran, and just beaten for the Res CC. The girls got
placements in their classes. Pictures to follow!
I also had an even more important purpose with this trip,
and that was to deliver our sweet and beautiful Gulan/ F A
Shakira, in whelp to our stunning Roger, to Marie Richmonds
Naqada kennel. Gulan was to our huge joy confirmed pregnant
by ultrasound while we were in UK, as we still wasn't sure,
she sure hid those babies well, and not showing any of the
usual signs except a stubborn disinterest in her food! But
it also was a bit early to tell, as they will hopefully be
born around July 12. Anyway, at least four (4) pups was
spotted by the vet at the scan. I think its 6-7, as I think
I saw more. Enquiries are welcome, though there are some
bookings already! More info about the litter under "Puppies"
and Roger's and Gulan's pages.
I have hopes that this litter will be just smashing!

Roger and Päshis became Swedish champions at SKK in
March 20, little Black boy, F A Lazarus "Diablo" was the
last puppy from our litter of eight, to leave his
childhoodhome, as he today moved to Denmark! Good luck in
your new home with Bo and Dorthe! We of course also wish
good luck to Imperator & Kahira who has joined Stephen and
Dominic and the Hallam Pharaohs in USA. Inferno & Ifrit who
moved to Debbie & Barth in Portland, USA. Green boy Invictus
who moved to Monika in Czech republic. We look forward to
hear what they all will achieve, as I'm sure they will, and
how they're doing in their new great homes!
Black boy - F A Lazarus - 11 weeks old, moved to his new
home in Denmark on Sunday 20th.
We also possibly have a one yearold bitch available for a
co-owner or breeding terms home, Farao
Anubis Ipanema "Rosie", she is out of F A Ikaros and
Faouziah's Champagne. Rosie has only been shown a couple of
times, but have done really well, already having several
CC's and two Finnish Winner titles in some top competition. Rosie's
Farao Anubis Golden Gait - Roger - Crufts official BOB
CRUFT'S, UK, March 12, 2011
We brought four dogs, and all four did really well! Best Of
Breed and dog CC to Farao Anubis Golden Gait, who also was
shortlisted in Group final, among 7 dogs. Best Of Opposite
and Bitch CC was his sister Farao Anubis Infra Red! They
both won big Open Classes. Reserve Best Dog CC, and 1st in
Veteran class, was Farao Anubis Ikaros. Farao Anubis Ipanema
won Junior Bitch Class. Judge was Espen Engh, and 50 + PHs
were entered. Also a thousand thanks to Masha Evteeva who
babysat our puppies and a few grown ups while we went to
Crufts! You're the best, without you, this would have been
impossible! Also congrats to your Globetrotter winning
Junior dog, and of course Chips was beautiful and moved
great as always!

Westminster, New York City, USA, February 14, 2011
We don't go to a lot of shows, but we chose the ones we
actually enter to, carefully! So, the only shows we been to
this year, are Westminster and Crufts, and what results we
got! We attended, with our own dog entered, for the first
time this very special show! (though our own Ramsan have won
BOB here before, but not shown by me at that occasion) Only
the five Top dogs in USA are invited, (and a few extra,
which have to be US champions) get the chance to enter in
each breed, as the entry total is very limited for this
show. But we managed to enter, a difficulty in itself! Many
thanks to Dominic and Dasha who helped/did this for me, not
to speak of housing me and Plupp and driving us to vets etc,
to be able to go back to Sweden, as well as both picking us
up, and leaving us at the airport!
Anyway, Farao Anubis Ikaros, Plupp, won the 1st Award Of
Merit (1st AOM) handled by me, owner/breeder/handler, big
thing itself at this show, where most are super handlers
behind dogs with lots of dollars spent on advert campaigns
to be able to win here. Judge was Espen Engh, Norway, and 17
PHs were entered. BOB and BOS were littermates, Ethan and
Ella, siblings to our Babe/Elodie, so they were out of our F
A Ramses. The other AOM was also out of two Farao Anubis
dogs, but Russian bred, making all four placed dogs
having one or both parents from Farao Anubis! (Except Plupp,
who is from us) Will
be updated with pics as soon as I get them.
New photos of the puppies, taken at 5 weeks old, links to

looking for a home!
Our new litter is here! They were born on Dec 28, 2010. Five
beautiful males and three bitches.
There is still one puppy looking for a home. Sire is our own
gorgeous Ch Farao Anubis Ikaros "Plupp" (handsome Lileo's
Orpheus x our superstar Antefa's Kahira) and dam is our US
import Ch Hallam Farao Anubis Elodie Ramzi "Babe" (Ramsan x
Mia Churuka Unchained Melody) so the litter has a fantastic
pedigree with new blood and several top dogs hard to find in
pedigrees here in Europe.
Babe and her newborns!

got his second CC and first BOB. In the finals he was placed
as BIS-2 Youngster. His sister F A Infra Red, Päshis, got
her 4th CC and was Best Bitch and BOS. Not bad in some top
competition. It was a Finnish judge and 10 PHs entered. Our
puppy Rosie, F A Ipanema, got BOB & BIS-4 puppy. No photo

Specialty shows 2010
July 31, SvFK. Stephen Wheeler judged our PH Club's big
specialty, and among the about 40 entries chosed our Roger,
F A Golden Gait, as his Best Dog & BOS!
Roger also won his first CC, and was BIS Unghund (BIS youth
class) He was also invited to compete for Best Movements &
Best head, but Roger and the best bitch were excluded from
the competition, as the judge didnt want to have to place
one of them before the other, before Best of Breed
competition. We had to be happy for the words from him that
those two were his best movers today.
BIS puppy was our Rosie, F A Ipanema "Rosie", among the
three puppies competed.

he seemed to prefer the "dark type", in every class, among
the again about 40 entries. Roger stood in the shadows for
his sister today, as our little Päshis, F A Infra Red, to
our great joy and surprise went almost all the way with her
Best Bitch, her 3rd CC, and BOS to the lovely, out of two
Farao Anubis PH's, Reedly Road Desperado, who was BOB &
Best Bitch 2nd and winner of Champion Class was our Babe,
Hallam F A Elodie Ramzi. Best Bitch 4 was F A Fariba on
Reedly Road, and BB 5th was Blondie, F A Nemesis Divina.
Plupp and Roger got placings in their classes, as 2nd and
3rd, both with CK. Our breeders group was Best Breeders
group and BIS-2 Group beating several. Our two puppy sisters
took turn so that BOB puppy today went to F A Iskra "Vinis"
who also was BIS-4 pup in the finals.
July 19, The King is dead, long live the King! Ramsan,
forever in our hearts and thoughts! We will miss you. And I
will miss you for as long as I live. Ramsan, the king of all
pharaohs, the excellent stud dog, the fantastic show dog
with his special beautiful long effortless movements, unique
"darkness", and beautiful temperament. The one who have put
his marks on the whole breed worldwide and thus highen the
quality in several countries. The last link to my happy
youth, and to my first pharaoh hound Trixi, Ch Antefa's
Elodeah born 1985, who he was the last remaining of my dogs
to have met. Now you run on the fields in heaven with your
special lady and wife Bibbi, Ch Antefas Kahira, who almost
was his eqvivalent in PH bitches, not being as spread
though. The amazing duo who often often in their time were
BOB and BOS at big prestigious shows in many countries. And
who before PHs were as recognised for high awards, won
amazingly much in groups and some times BIS, in that more
"poorer" times. And the remarkable 3 year American adventure
Ramsan and me had, then already in Ramsan's older years, and
he was TOP Pharaoh Hound there, and winning BIS at their
National and BOB at Westminster, everything as a 7-8 yearold
veteran! I will forever treasure that whole adventure in my
heart and mind, having witnessed so much fun and interesting
and getting a look into worlds I never knew before. What a
time we all had. I will never forget you.
June 15, We just got new great pics of our
gorgeous boy in USA, Farao Anubis Ramiro "Hayden", living

"Skokloster" Sighthound Shows! Now called and situated at
Saturday at Pharaoh Hound Club Specialty we had five PHs
entered, and they all did well under Hanna Ukura, Northgates
PHs, Finland, who had 56 entries. Farao Anubis Ikaros
"Plupp" was BOS and of course Best Male, he was also
competing for Best Head and Best Movements. 13½ year old
Ramsan won Best Head and Best Veteran Dog from the +10 years
class this the probably last show for him, over F A Kahiro,
who won the 8-10 years class. Babe was 2nd in Champion and
2nd Best Bitch, as well as the Best Foreign bred PH. Gulan
was 1st in Open Class among several very nice bitches. Thank
you Hanna for a truly interesting and fun day!
Sunday and Sighthound Show day turned out to be a bit of a
fiascho, and with hindsight we were lucky to only have
entered three of our PHs. Best did Ch Farao Anubis Kahiro
"Pi" who was Best Dog 4th, of about 40 entries for a German
judge, Waltraud Peschges. Babe was 4th in Champion Bitch,
showing her heart out, especially on the move this day, but
not even placed in Best Bitch. But the strangest of all was
Plupp's 4th Champion Dog placing (of 5) without a CK! The
first time for a long long time that Plupp didn't receive CK
(Champion quality) which let them continue competing for
Best Dog/Bitch. All critiques were great, so I still have no
idea what she disliked or what she was looking for, also
appearant in her uneven judging with no red line in it for
type or anything. Congrats anyway to the beautiful couple
the judge eventually found in BOB Aros & BOS Champiz, two of
my favourite PHs!

Congratulations to our top dog "Ramsan" (Farao Anubis
Ramses) on his 13th birthday!
No shows so far, but we start 2009 with our 7th litter,
which is also our first litter for 5 years! Six beautiful
puppies were born on March 27th! Check out the details on "Puppies"!
Ikaros is Top Stud Dog in Finland 2008! Ramses is Top Stud
Dog in England 2008!
Farao Anubis Ikaros BOB at SKK Gotland, judge Andre van den
Plupp and me in the Best In Show final at
Skokloster/Lövudden Sighthound Specialty Show 2008.
Plupp was placed as BIS reserve.

Farao Anubis Ikaros "Plupp" was Best Of Breed over 58
entried PHs under well respected judge Bo Bengtsson at
"Skokloster" Sighthound Specialty. And EVERYONE was there!
Later Plupp was placed Best In Show reserve in the
sighthound group, judge Gilberto Grandi, Italy. I'm more
than thrilled and happy and overwhelmed over this
prestigious win for that judge who's opinion everyone have
wanted and also to get him to Sweden, for so long.
It was his book Vinthundar, "Sighthounds" which made me
interested in PHs in the first place, in a time when the PH
was hardly shown in pictures or described anywhere else, not
even in breed lexicons, at least in Sweden. His eye for dogs
and knowledge is well known around the world. And in my
opinion (and obviosly his too) he did find the best dog with
the most beautiful outline as his winner. (Photo on

Ramsans progeny group was BOB both days, Ramsan was Best
Veteran male saturday (sighthound day) Blondie (Farao Anubis
Nemesis Divina) was BOS at the PH spacialty. Babe, Hallam
Farao Anubis Elodie Ramzi was Best Bitch 5 for Bo Bengtsson
and Best Bitch 3rd for Göran Bodegård, PH specialty.

March 9 2008, Crufts!
More than 20.000 entered dogs! We had 4 dogs with us, and a
baby, quite an enterprise to bring them all, but the baby is
amazingly easy, so everything went well. Plupp, Ch Farao
Anubis Ikaros, was Best Of Breed in a big entry of 33
Pharaohs, being a nice mix of both English and foreign
entries. Judge Debbie Diamond, Surannon PHs, UK. With this
Plupp gained his 7th English CC. Best Of Opposite Sex and
Bitch CC was Babe, Ch Hallam Farao Anubis Elodie Ramzi.
Reserve Dog CC was won by Plupp's young son, Lyncris Sun
King Of Rayempet, waiting for his 3rd CC. Best Veteran dog
was Ch Farao Anubis Kahiro, Pi. Plupp also got a long good
glance from the group judge, (and then she looked to my
face) why I at the time thought he'd be placed, or
shortlisted, but no. Hopefully we get more chances for that
in the future, because I love Crufts, and to be in the final
ring there with a great dog who flies around and knows
exactly what to do. The floor being made of rubber grass, so
no slipping around there. Second time for me, as Ramsan and
I was shortlisted/made the cut, there 2002. Gulan, Farao
Anubis Shakira was 3rd in Limit bitch. We were very pleased
with our day, and had a very nice trip.
I also collected the prizes for Top PH Breeder in UK 2007,
and Top Stud Dog 2007, who was Plupp.
