Sharrah’s foundation dog, Ch. Shangrila Pharaoh Kauravya (27 1/2" tall, short coupled dog),
finished a multi-Breed winner over the nation’s #1 afghans. This highly marked black and tan
(blue and red) embodied a double Gandharra genepool.
Nine (9) of his 10 get were pointed, 5 finished. 2 were Group 1 winners.

Ch. Kauravya started his career at 22 months.
Owner-handled, he took a 3 point Major BOB over 6 specials under
Mrs. Doris Wear, defeating the #1 Afghan for 3 years in running,
and 5 other BIS/SBIS champions (Owner-handler: Randy Murphy). Immediately thereafter, Kauravya suffered
a severe injury, died on the operating table, but was revived.
Two and a half years later, the miracle dog entered the ring and took
another Breed over 4 specials, including the newest #1 Afghan in the country!
Notable Cissy Froelich was the judge. Kauravya finished with a prestigious 4 point
major under Mr. Frank Sabella, handled by friend, Mickey Koss. Rose Marie Crandahl
and Ken Murray also assisted with other wins.
(I entered the ring after Kauravya finished). Other judges contributing to Boo's
championship: Don Martin, Bill Fetner, Michele Billings and Ray Beale.
Decades ago, purchasing an Afghan meant marrying into a gene pool.
When breeding outside a given line a generation or two, dogs’ attributes
remained consistent. NOT TODAY.
