22 22 Best of Breed judging. Best of Breed prizes - including a Back on Track coat modelled by specialty winner Samwise. Ring steward Carole Adley and show chair Debby Dillman, with judge Peter Yardley behind.

23 Saluki Club of Canada National Specialty 3 SEPTEMBER 2016 HELD at TouRNAMENT CAPITAL RANCH, KAMLOOPS, BC Carole Adley, Ring Steward with judge Peter Yardley The day dawned overcast with a forecast threatening rain. However for most of the day it was dry, until the end when the heavens opened and we retreated under the small tented area, causing confusion for the last of the classes. First of all, I would like to thank the Club for inviting me to judge and the help of the organizers, in particular Carole Adley, for helping me navigate the various North American classes, which I find confusing. It is refreshing to go and judge the breed when you know nothing about the hounds and people and you can concentrate just on what you see and handle. I am an advocate of natural handling with the hound shown on a loose lead, standing naturally, not held up in the stack,and run at their natural 2016 unforced pace. The buzz word for UK Kennel Club is Fit of Purpose, and having been an ardent open field coursing enthusiast this is basically what I was looking for, a balanced fit hound that would be capable of doing a good day s work in the field. One thing that seems to be creeping into the breed worldwide is the more upright or straight front and I think this is detrimental to the function of the breed in its ability as a coursing breed. They need to have the ability to compress the whole front leg assembly to absorb shock and to turn at the flat out gallop, so there needs for a degree of angulation between the leg, upper arm and the shoulder blade. Many were also too upright on their pasterns. It was nice to see so many smooths representing the breed. As an aside, there are three things about showing I would like to comment on: the pirouette, baiting and teeth. I learnt my ring craft when I was living in Edmonton and one of elements that was emphasised time and again was that the handler should never come between the judge and the hound. When you are asked to run a triangle you go away to one corner of the ring, across the top of the ring and then back to the judge, all in one continuous flowing movement so that the judge can properly judge the quality of the movement. Baiting in the ring is a distraction not only for the hound but the judge as well. You should have trained your hound to stand and move without a piece of chicken flapping around under its nose. In one case the baiting was so overt that I could not go over the hound in any meaningful manner. Teeth should be clean and free of tartar; it is all part of presentation and there were one of two that were bad. Peter Yardley, Judge The Canadian Saluki Annual

24 SweepstaKEs - JudGE: Cathie Hays Youth SweepstaKEs JUnioR PUppY BITCH 1st : 206 KUSHIEL S FREESPirit REIGN OF FIRE Owners: Erika Parton, Brittany Parton, Garrison Rose and Michelle Parton This pretty young puppy exudes type for me. All parts flow together and are balanced. She is true coming and going with a light reaching but not overdone gait. I especially appreciated her strong croup and second thigh, the driving force in a running hound, and thus gave her Best in Puppy Sweeps and Best in Breeders Sweeps MONTH BITCH Sweeps judge, Cathie Hays 1st : 207 CanaPUS IMPEria Owner: Jones Kathleen Another pretty girl that shows her type and breeding. True coming and going with correct side gait. I preferred the set-down front assembly and slightly stronger rear assembly of the younger bitch. Veteran SweepstaKEs 7-10 YEARS VETERan DOG 1st : 204 DADAELis BZantiUM KOKKinos PETHI Owners: Kathleen Jones, Marilyn Brown and Kathleen Jones This smooth fellow fits well into my picture of moderate, balanced with all parts flowing together. He moved with ease and exhibited a flowing, easy gait. He was also well conditioned and appeared athletic, as Salukis should. Thus he was award Best in Veteran Sweepstakes. 2nd: 205 DADAELis T Cai JUUSO WUSHK SAMR Owner: Deborah Dillman Another smooth fellow who unfortunately was difficult to judge due to his appetite! Thus he lacked condition. He was true coming and going as was his side gait. Considering if he were in condition, I still prefer the tighter body frame, and leg to body ratio of 204. abs: 214 CH. AULDSTANE CUnoBELIN Owner: Janet L. Buchanan 7-10 YEARS VETERAN BITCH 1st: 213 CH. IROKI ZarKAVA, FCH. Owner: Roberta Pattison This veteran girl was in better condition than 218. She is moderate, but could use a less open angle in her front assembly. She was very unhappy with the wet grass and did not use her front as effectively as she could, which in turn shortened and impaired her gait. 10 YEARS and OVER VETERan BITCH 2nd: 212 IROKI SUZannE Owner: Roberta Pattison Although showing glimpses of a very pretty type, this little girl was underweight, and unhappy with the whole show scene. Her gait was also wide behind, which may be attributed to the roach in her loin. 1st: 218 GCH. HILLsidE S ALABAMA OF LIGHtsPEED Owners: Susan and Donald Mitchell This veteran girl presents a pleasing strong outline and type, well set-down shoulders, good croup, although somewhat overdone in the rear assembly. I prefer a shorter tibia/ fibula and thus less angulation as exhibited by 213. She presented herself well and showed with a flowing side gait, which won her BoS in Veteran Sweepstakes. BEst IN SWEEPS: Dadaelis Bzantium Kokkinos Pethi BEst OF OPPositE: GCh. Hillside s Alabama Of Lightspeed BEst IN SWEEPS: Kushiel s Freespirit Reign Of Fire 24 The Canadian Saluki Annual 2016

This fellow has a lovely well set front assembly. All parts flow together, although I would prefer to see him standing more under himself. He was true coming and going. He won his placement as he really drove himself forward with his rear - again to be appreciated in the a running hound. 2nd: 216 KriMZyn KUMAMia KarEEM MALad AT LAHHABEH Owners: Deborah Dillman and Kathleen Jones This fellow presents a moderate and balanced picture, again all parts in harmony. True coming and going but could use more rear drive in his side gait. BITCHES 1st: 206 KUSHIEL S FREESPirit REIGN OF FIRE Owners: Erika Parton, Brittany Parton, Garrison Rose and Michelle Parton This pretty young puppy exudes type for me. All parts flow together and are balanced. She is true coming and going with a light reaching but not overdone gait. I especially appreciated her strong croup and second thigh, the driving force in a running hound, and thus gave her Best in Puppy Sweeps and Best in Breeders Sweeps. Now, to watch her mature! 2nd: 219 GCH. KUSHIEL S TO SOLACE MY HEart Owners: Laura Studer and Erika Parton It was very evident that this mature girl was closely related to 206 as she exhibited many of the same lovely qualities. I would have preferred just a tad stronger loin, more croup and second thigh, both of which would have pulled her together. BEst IN SWEEPS: Kushiel s Freespirit Reign Of Fire Thank you for inviting me to judge the Sweepstakes classes.

44 The Saluki Health Federation The Saluki Health Federation is a global, not-forprofit, Saluki health organization, established to promote the health of the breed now, and in the future, by supporting scientific research to provide DNA tests for hereditary diseases afflicting our breed. Until now there has been no unified voice within the breed fancy to drive a commitment to the development of such tests. The Federation aims to be that unifying force, bringing clubs together to initiate research for the future health of our breed. After careful review, the Federation has selected The Animal Health Trust (AHT) to archive Saluki DNA and undertake research to develop genetic tests. AHT ( uk) is a veterinary charity, located in the UK and supported by the Kennel Club. The AHT Canine Genetics department is an established organization researching mutations responsible for hereditary conditions and developing robust, breed specific diagnostic tests. They share expertise and data with the University of Helsinki and the University of California at Davis on a project by project basis. AHT is not tied into existing funding priorities and can work directly with the Federation, as well as breed clubs, to prioritize the most urgent breed specific tests. As a charitable organization AHT receives funding from the Kennel Club and other institutional sources but also depends on donations from owners and clubs to augment funding of breed-specific research. The development of a single test can cost from $15,000-$30,000. The Federation has secured an agreement with the AHT that monetary donations, made through the donations page of their website, can be specifically designated to Saluki research so that monies go directly to our breed and are not diverted to general canine research. The identification of disease mutations and development of genetic tests require DNA from both healthy and diseased individuals, as well as funding to undertake research. The Federation aims to encourage clubs to promote the collection of DNA samples and help raise the necessary research funds. We will aid in providing DNA test kits at nominal cost where they are not currently available and can suggest how to generate both DNA collections and monetary donations. Through the Federation website, which is still under construction, we will provide information and updates about current research into hereditary disease in Salukis. We also hope to offer advice to clubs from geneticists on best breeding practice with regard to dogs known to be carriers, or related to carriers, of inherited disease. We call upon your Club to support our initiative, not just financially, but by developing an on-going strategy to encourage your members to collect and submit DNA samples, if you do not do so already. Please let your members know that this is an important task for all Saluki owners, not just those who attend organized events with their hounds. We encourage every Club to make Saluki breed health a priority, and to work together with other Clubs, at home and abroad, to promote the necessary research to help secure our breed s well-being. Your Saluki Health Federation Representative is Roberta Parish, who liaises directly with our central administrators. Please reply directly to her to provide details of your Club s current practices so we can learn about what efforts, if any, your Club has in place to promote DNA collection, who coordinates that effort, and where the DNA is sent. If your Club does not currently contribute to a Saluki health program or promote DNA collection, please let her know that too.

45 What is a Gene Mutation and How do Mutations Occur? A gene mutation is a permanent alteration in the DNA sequence that makes up a gene, such that the sequence differs from what is found in most people (*or in our case Salukis). Mutations range in size; they can affect anywhere from a single DNA building block (base pair) to a large segment of a chromosome that includes multiple genes. Gene mutations can be classified in two major ways: Hereditary mutations are inherited from a parent and are present throughout a person s life in virtually every cell in the body. These mutations are also called germline mutations because they are present in the parent s egg or sperm cells, which are also called germ cells. When an egg and a sperm cell unite, the resulting fertilized egg cell receives DNA from both parents. If this DNA has a mutation, the child that grows from the fertilized egg will have the mutation in each of his or her cells. Acquired (or somatic) mutations occur at some time during a person s life and are present only in certain cells, not in every cell in the body. These changes can be caused by environmental factors such as ultraviolet radiation from the sun, or can occur if an error is made as DNA copies itself during cell division. Acquired mutations in somatic cells (cells other than sperm and egg cells) cannot be passed to the next generation. Genetic changes that are described as de novo (new) mutations can be either hereditary or somatic. In some cases, the mutation occurs in a person s egg or sperm cell but is not present in any of the person s other cells. In other cases, the mutation Representing a chromosomal segment Orignal DNA sequence Substitution Deletion Insertion occurs in the fertilized egg shortly after the egg and sperm cells unite. (It is often impossible to tell exactly when a de novo mutation happened.) As the fertilized egg divides, each resulting cell in the growing embryo will have the mutation. De novo mutations may explain genetic disorders in which an affected child has a mutation in every cell in the body but the parents do not, and there is no family history of the disorder. Somatic mutations that happen in a single cell early in embryonic development can lead to a situation called mosaicism. These genetic changes are not present in a parent s egg or sperm cells, or in the fertilized egg, but happen a bit later when the embryo includes several cells. As all the cells divide during growth and development, cells that arise from the cell with the altered gene will have the mutation, while other cells will not. Depending on the mutation and how many cells are affected, mosaicism may or may not cause health problems. Most disease-causing gene mutations are uncommon in the general population. However, other genetic changes occur more frequently. Genetic alterations that occur in more than 1 percent of the population are called polymorphisms. They are common enough to be considered a normal variation in the DNA. Polymorphisms are responsible for many of the normal differences between people such as eye color, hair color, and blood type. Although many polymorphisms have no negative effects on a person s health, some of these variations may influence the risk of developing certain disorders. Do all gene mutations affect health and development? See mutationsanddisorders/neutralmutations The DNA sequence of a gene can be altered in a number of ways. Gene mutations have varying effects on health, depending on where they occur and whether they alter the function of essential proteins. The types of mutations include: missense mutation, nonsense mutation, insertion, deletion, duplication, frameshift mutation, repeat expansion. possiblemutations The Canadian Saluki Annual

63 Timeline History of the SaLUKi in Canada First Salukis in the CKC studbook. Mrs. Gilbert Bagnani of Port Hope, Ontario imports from the UK a fawn bitch, Nablous Mish-Mish, born May 5, 1937, and a fawn dog, Mazuri Adonis, born July 28, First Canadian Saluki litter. Mazuri Adonis and NablousMish-Mish are the parents, Mrs. Bagnani the breeder. This litter includes the influential Mazuri el Gharb First Canadian Champion. Ch. Diamond Hill Hadji, owned by Audrey (Hollis) Benbow First Canadian-bred Champion. Ch. Tamar el Sirhan(Ch. Diamond Hill Hadji x Mazuri el Gharb), owned and bred by Audrey (Hollis) Benbow, is from the first el Sirhan litter, born in A litter sister, Kaaba el Sirhan, is bred from, and her name lives on in modern American pedigrees The second el Sirhan litter. Born in the United States but bred by Canadian Audrey (Hollis) Benbow from Ch. Diamond Hill Akbar Malik x Mazuri el Gharb, it includes Sharifah el Sirhan, foundation bitch of the Jen Araby Salukis Intl. and Dutch Champion Mazuri Orno and Karuma el Saraje imported from Europe by Rudi Elcus of Montreal. These two produce Elsalaf Vedette, owned by the Kuglers of Montreal, influential in many Canadian and American pedigrees Ch. Ayesha Farouk of Pine Paddocks and Ch. Aziza Farouk of Pine Paddocks imported from the U.S. by Ruth (Coates) Kolenoff of Toronto. Mrs. Kolenoff also imports Ch. Sakkara Arabesque and Baytor Beda from England, and these four dogs are the foundation of her influential Kesari Salukis First and second Kesari litters. By Arabesque x Aziza, the first includes the wellknown show dog Ch. Kesari Asad Gamyl and Ch. Kesari Anitra Zaryf, whose names feature prominently in many current North American Saluki pedigrees. The second, by Arabesque out of Ayesha, includes Am. Ch. Kesari Baga Latyf, owned by Cynthia (Madison) Boissevain and Kesari Bennaya Belatyn, foundation bitch of Tom Alker s El Nuri Salukis Saluki Club of Canada formed. A group of southern Ontario Saluki fanciers, led by Ruth Kolenoff, get together to form the Saluki Club of Canada Sumeru s Lockni Yani Mackson s (Warm Valley s Beloved Infidel x Ch. Sumeru s Ki Khala) born. A granddaughter of Elsalaf Vedette, she produces four litters to Ch. Warm Valley s Niki of Mackson s which include many influential Salukis on both sides of the border. Am. Can. Mackson s Mirzanna of Urray and Mackson s Mir-andah of Urray provide part of the foundation for Richard and Barbara Webster s Urray Salukis on the west coast, while Ch. Mackson scheran of Urray brings Margaret and Ngaire Coe into the breed. Mackson s Bini de la Fontaine is a foundation bitch for Joanne Swadron s AnandaSalukis in Ontario Final Kesari litter. When the kennel is disbanded due to Mrs. Kolenoff s ill health, Baytor Beda goes to Bill and Esta Eltiste s Billa de Esta Salukis in Nevada, where he becomes an extremely influential sire First Best in Show win by a Saluki in Canada. Elmer Grieve s Ch. Kesari Sahari Saiyad (Baytor Beda x Ch. Kesari Anitra Zaryf) wins back to back Best in Show awards only days before his tragic accidental death. His name lives on in many modern pedigrees First Urray litter. Mirzanna and Mir-andah are the parents. Other foundation Salukis for the Websters Urrays include Burydown Saladin, Ch. Abu s Krishna of Srinagar, Ch. Urray Sita of Srinagar and Jarry s Tsena of Urray. The Websters are co-breeders (with Srinagar) of several American-bred litters which include such notables as Am. Ch. Srinagar Brahma of Urray (Brahma II), while their top-winning Canadian-bred is the famous Ch. Urray Cheheli. Urray Charis becomes a foundation bitch for Joanne Swadron s Ananda Salukis. The last Urray litter is born in Ch. Sarif Karim Winners Dog at Santa Barbara. Karim, by Ch. Kesari Sadid Mezrar x Kesari Um Sadafa, bred by Tom Alker, is owned by Bill and Veen Frewin.

Crown Crest Allah s Comet x Ch. Ananda s Llasa). Pluto is a highly successful show dog and a Best in Show winner Canada s first smooth champion, Ch. Bel S Mbran Raki Racim. Racim is owned by top junior handler David Ritson-Bennett First Windstorm litter. Yes, they ve been around that long. In terms of show ring accomplishments by Canadian-bred Salukis, in Canada and around the world, nothing tops Randy and Starr White s Windstorms. The list of their Best in Show and Best in Specialty winners is a long one, and includes such notables as Can. Am. Ch. Windstorm Luck Be An Lady, Can. Am. Ch. Windstorm Ruffled One, and Can. Am. Ch. Windstorm Shalom Cabaret Can. Am. Ch. Burydown Ismahane imported. She has notable wins at both Canadian and American specialties and is the foundation bitch for Margaret and Ngaire Coe s Ismahan Salukis. She produces one of the foundation bitches for Lesley Brabyn s Timaru Salukis, Can. Am. Ch. Ismahan Amaranthe CD to present. Best in Show wins for Salukis an almost regular occurrence. For the past 30 years Salukis have often been featured at or near the top of not only hound group but all breed rankings. Can. Am. Ch. Bel S m Bran J.R, Can. Am. Ch. Gazella Outlaw Titian, the ground-breaking smooth Can. Am. Ch. Afking Baghdad Katulnas Khalif and Can. Am.

Cato becomes a foundation dog for Lin Hawkyard s Lorrequer Salukis and sires other important litters Hope Waters s arrival in Canada. The legendary British Saluki breeder leaves Britain for the Okanagan, bringing with her several of the famous Burydown Salukis Saluki Club of Canada 30 years old. Celebrations include the largest Saluki specialty ever held in Canada First Canadian Burydown litter. A singleton smooth puppy, Ch. Burydown Hilerica Ulahni, is born to Ch. Shelby Abadiyah of Burydown. The sire is Ch. Elana Mubarak. Lahni goes on to take big specialty wins on both sides of the border and to produce subsequent Canadian Burydown litters Big Canadian wins at several American specialties. Solidifying a trend started with Ch. Sarif Karim way back in 1967 and continuing through the eighties and nineties, Canadian Salukis sweep up significant wins at specialties from the National in Kentucky to Michigan and west to Washington. Jan Buchanan and Karen Doyle s Can. Am. Ch. Gazella Auldstane Affirmed is Winners dog at both the SCOA National and Huron Valley specialties, Ulahni is Best of Winners at Puget Sound, and the Whites Lucky is Best of Breed at Huron Valley, with her daughter, Can.

66 Whites, is Best of Opposite Sex. They repeat their wins at the Canadian National in Calgary later that summer The Classic Saluki features Canadian Salukis. Now the world knows about the enormous influence Canadian breeders have had on the breed across North America to present. Over the last 10 years the Canadian Saluki has moved from strength to strength. The big show wins continue to be recorded. Perhaps even more significant, the list of Canadian Salukis exported to countries around the world is rapidly expanding. These hounds are winning in the show ring and on the field and are being incorporated into the breeding programs of some the best known and best respected international Saluki breeders in Australia, South Africa, and across Europe. Though our numbers are small, with just a handful of litters bred every year, the quality continues to be great. But those of you who are reading this are the ones writing the story now, and you don t need me to tell you how it goes.

67 KOGA FARIDAAT EO DASH INCREDIBLE SPDBS GEN3, AKC/CKC Registered Koga is a wonderful family dog, whose favourite activities include hiking in summer and ski-joring in winter, sometimes teaming up with another dog for twice the fun! Off-leash time is Koga s favourite time of day, and it s a beautiful thing to see him all stretched out and airborne, sailing through the brush. As much as he likes to run, he also has a calm disposition, and will happily nap until once again he is called to duty. Koga fancies himself a watchdog too, alerting us to arrivals at the house and dogs on walk-about in the back forty, as well as warding off bears scouting for things to eat in the neighbourhood. Koga and his siblings are a unique blend of Saudi and Turkish desert lineage coupled with western coursing/show lines. Koga is the first desert bred to be registered with the Canadian Kennel Club through the SPDBS critique process. This handsome boy has participated in a few shows in Canada, but spends most of his time exploring the great outdoors! DOB: Breeder: Shelley Work & Warren/ Victoria Cook Owner: Rita Kors P.O.
