Pharaoh Hounds were judged by Mrs. Keke Kahn from the USA. Weera, Faouziah's Crown Jewel of the North, was BB-4 and Qing, Northgate's As You Like It, was BOB over entry of 35 Pharaohs. In the group finals Mr. Wilberg Knut-Sigurd placed Qing as GROUP-1! And I had the pleasure to see Qing flying around the ring like a true king into the BEST IN SHOW win judged by Mr. Nils Molin. With this wonderful win Qing got his name in the history book - being the first Pharaoh Hound in Scandinavia to win SHOW DOG OF THE YEAR competition. What a magnificent end to an incredible year! This day I will remember for ever!

Many thanks to Qing's co-owner Annica Lundqvist-Hemström @ kennel Antefa's for all the support.

Jenny & Jocke: Thank You so much for taking Qing everywhere and for loving & caring for him. Jenny you have made him the brightest star in Sweden, without you handling him into perfection he would not shine like he shines today!
