DOYEN Afghan Hounds
GILGAI – NSW
I became aware of Afghan hounds in 1973 and decided that I would have one to replace the Bassett hound sometime. This was the time when Afghan hounds were enormously popular and seen in great numbers. I looked at several of the named kennels of the time, but found the dog of my heart in a backyard litter in Wollongong. Due to circumstances brought about by the decimation of the litter by the then new Parvovirus we came home with “two for the price of one”; bitches…one black and tan…my preferred colour even now, and her sister a B/M gold. Life would not be the same without having had this girl in my life.
