I was a child and I used to follow, even though a bit bored my sister at
dog shows, my eyes were shining everytime I looked at those so
particular dogs, that seemed to wear chiffon ribbons, floating at every
step they take: Afghan Hounds only stepped into my life later, while my
adventure as a Golden Retriever breeder had already started.
Itís been such a chance to meet this breed, for sure itís not been an
attentively considered choice: the friendship with a person owning some
dogs of this breed, allowed me to have a right approach that broke down
that reverential shyness that you often feel when your look meets the
ones of an Afghan Hound. The great, uncomparable pleasure you feel when
you and an Afghan together take steps at the same in the show ring did
Now my knowledge is deeper, I understood how to respect that gaze that
seems to cross myself trying to reach the horizon, and how to live with
a dog doesnít want to be treated like a dog, but put on your same level
because it wonít tolerate orders but he adequates himself to your will,
only if you know how to convince him that this is the best for it.
