At the Tate Modern in London there is an exhibition of the work of Alberto Giacometti. Pleased to report, for those who have not seen it, his beautiful Saluki is on show He called it ‘skinny dog’ if I remember correctly. We saw it a few years ago at the Royal Academy and it is far more beautiful then it is in photographs.
We understand that Angela Yardley is in the hospital at the time of this writing. It seems that her 2 young borzois crashed into her at 30 miles an hour. She has a couple of broken bones so will laid up for a while.
The last week has been a very successful and exciting time for Salukis. At Southern Counties Championship Show, Ch Baghdad Karim Sh CM won both the Hound Group and the Veteran Hound Group. He did not manage to go Best in Show but he won a very successful Reserve Best Veteran in Show. At the same show Canerikie Catalina continue her success from the puppy classes winning a Hound Puppy Group 2. At Three-Counties Champ Show, Fernlark Schussboomer won 1st in the Hound Group. Our congratulations to all that have presented out breed so well.
On the 2nd of June, Southern Counties held their championship show. Judging Salukis was Andre Van Den Broek of The Netherlands. His judging was controversial as he withheld placements on 5 dogs. Whatever the problems were, we will have to wait until his critique is published and then maybe we will find some answers.
