Owners: Wanda L. & Pamela J. Sirianni.

Owners: Wanda L. & Pamela J. Sirianni.
This lovely parti smooth bitch has been a joy for us. She was first born in our Christmas Litter and the first to finish her Championship. Along the way to that title, she had to win over a number of judges who had never seen a parti smooth Saluki before – and win them over she did! She finished at the WVSC Specialty 2002 going BOW, Best BBE & Best in Sweeps. She gave us a beautiful litter of 2 boys, 4 girls on 2-11-03 sired by our Ramani. At 4 months of age, they are looking good. Noel also loves to chase the lure. Noel is SPECIAL – just ask her!

Best Veteran
Ch. Sirianni Hakuna Matata, JC

“In all, a nice entry of dogs. Although judging did not come down to heads, I found some heads too broad for my taste. Fronts were an issue with some dogs. Balance in my opinion is all-important. There also is some Houndiness being lost in many of our sighthounds, and I noticed this to be so in Salukis as well. It was a pleasure to judge your specialty.”
