Early in 2014, Paula Bockman-Chato of Baghdad saluki fame, asked us if we would be interested in co-owning Demi with her and Lyndell Ackerman (Carma Salukis) and campaigning her in North America.
Demi arrived at Wynsyr in May of 2014 and debued at the SCOA National Specialty week. She finished her American title in three weekends with an all-breed Best in Show from the classes!
Later in that summer we took her to Canada where she earned her Canadian championship in one cluster with 5 group wins and 4 all-breed Bests in Show! Demi is now an American Grand Champion Silver and currently has a career total of 15 all-breed Bests in Show, 5 Reserve Bests in Show, 7 owner handler Bests in Show, and 12 specialty Bests in Show! Career highlights were when she won the 2016 SCOA National Specialty under German breeder-judge Dagmar Hintzenberg-Freisleben, of Sawahin salukis, and the American Saluki Association Celebration under sighthound breeder Judy Lowther.
Demi produced one litter sired by Caroline Coile's Pepe: BIS/MBIF/MBISS GCHG Baha Persian of Interest, CD, FCh, SC, RN, OA, MXJ, NF, TKA, VSX. We are thrilled for her six offspring to be carrying on her legacy.
Demi lived out her days at Wynsyr as the most perfect companion and beloved friend. We will be forever grateful to Paula for allowing her to stay with us.
Probably our most beloved Afghan has been MSBIS GCH Wynsyr China Doll. China was a multi group winner, but her greatest claim to fame is her incredible record of 21 specialty best in show awards.
Even more incredible is the fact that she did not win her first specialty until she was six years old. China is proof positive that great dogs only improve with age.
China was an exemplary show dog. She LOVED going around the ring to the applause of her many admirers. She lived out her life as a beloved house pet, passing away at nearly 16 years of age. She is missed every day.
