After several years of on and off searching, Khariz Hounds has moved to Georgia. Doggie activities have more or less stopped while the move progresses. All being made ready for the dogs with the help of dear friends Cathy and Scotty Temple, and family, Keith Guidebeck and Steve Autera. This could not have been done without you all.
From left to right, Steve Autera, Scotty Temple, Cathy Temple and Keith Guidebeck. Construction crew par excellence!
Omen Khariz E.E. Casabanca comes home with the purple from one of the most prestigious shows in the U.S. Thank you to judge Gene Vaccaro for this honor. Toomee and Lexee Reserve.
Toomee, Lexee and Blanca had their first show adventure on December 10 and 11 2016. Considering it was the first time in a ring, it did not go too badly. Lexee came home with WB, BOW, BOS and BBE at Saturday's show.
The next day, Blanca and Toomee got their shot at the purple. Blanca was WB and BOS and Toome BOW. Each one of them came home with their first point.
Sincere thanks to Sari Brewster Tieijan and Helene Neitsch for their kind handling of the puppies. Thanks also for your wonderful comments about their quality.
