Introducing a new Champion to the 
Afghan Hound world, our first champion,


Joey finished at the age of 2 and a half in style with a Winners 
Dog and Best of Winners for four points at the Mississippi 
Valley Kennel Club Show under judge Mr. Kent Delaney 
during the Afghan Hound Club of St. Louis specialty weekend!

This exciting win rounds off Joey’s class career that was 
completely piloted by my husband, Eddie, with me 
grooming/cheering, and includes:

BOB at 12 months of age from the classes over a Group 2 
placing special (major broken by 1 bitch) at the Huntsville 
Kennel Club Show in November 2004 under breeder
judge Tom Kirstein

Best in Match at the Birmingham Kennel Club 
Sanctioned B Match at 14 months in January 2005

WD at the Richmond Afghan Hound Club Specialty 
Show in March of 2006 for 5 points under breeder 
judge David Cochrane

RWD to a major at the Salina Kennel Club Show in 
April 2006 under judge Frank Sabella

RWD at the Afghan Hound Club of Southwestern 
Ohio’s 50th Anniversary Show in May of 2006 under
breeder judge Bob Stein

In all, Joey amassed 5 major RWDs before he won
in St. Louis, so we were all ready for that finishing
finger point by the judge. In the 10 specialties he was
entered in during his class career, he was in the ribbons
for his class at all but one of them, and his quality 
has been recognized by various judges.
