2 New Champions - 3 New Titles

Lier, Norway: August 20, 2011 - We are thrilled to announce that Am Norw Danish Ch. Omen Yaffa to Elsto-Khariz JC was the Best Opposite Sex choice of Juan Carlos Vasconsellos, the specialty judge for the Norwegian National Saluki Specialty for 2011. Yaffa has made few ring appearances this year and we have been grateful for the recognition she has received.

The icing on the cake was that Mr. Vasonsellos also decided Yaffa's kids, Elsto Atif-Khariz and Elsto Afareen-Khariz, were deserving of winning the dog and bitch CC at the specialty making them both Norwegian Champions. Since Afareen had won the Swedish CC last week, she now has two new titles....Norwegian and Swedish Champion.

Congratulations to all and thank you to Mr. Vasconsellos for honoring our dogs with these wins.
