Some coments....

..."Please let it be known: more than anything else, I felt I was there with history being made... You pulled a Lois Boardman ( Akaba kennels: she showed Ch. Akaba's Sterling Silver to national best of breed when it was held in New York, and the next day won Best of Breed with his brother, the incredible Ch. Akaba's Blue Devil at Westminster and then went onto Group 1). It is an incredible thing you have done, Stefan. I was very glad to be there for a part of it. I recently read something about fashion designers: someone said that it is no good to be too far forward, and never too far behind. One has to be "right on time". Stefan, you are " right on time". " My very best, Jerry Klein, Sebring afghans

....."The reality is that this is the first and probably the last time one kennel sweeps the National. It's mind boggling to think one person wins sweeps, WD, WB, BOW, BOB...... As a breeder I take my hats off to Stefan for the remarkable quality and consistency of his breeding program and congratulate his remarkable achievement at our most important show - the National. These accomplishents are few and far between"... Rachel, Elan Afghans

... "As for Reeva what a sweet bitch, great temperament, a true testament to her breeder"... Becky Morisette, Obsession Afghans

..."I say, kudos to Stefan for the marvelous achievements of his gorgeous dogs. They seriously took the USA by storm this past week and nobody can take THAT away! .... really..these wins are almost beyond belief..…How can one breeder sweep the AHCA National under 3 judges…this is AMAZING and will probably never again be equalled! ... Kelly Ray, Lyrix Afghans

....That bitch is absolutely gorgeous. I went over her outside of the ring after her Best of Breed win. She is lovely lovely to the hand and to the eyes. I watched Stefan's reaction as the 'finger' was pointed at him. He almost passed out ! He had tears in his eyes. He is one of the nicest, most humble people you will meet. He loves this breed, as we all do... ..... her lovely performance, the teamwork with her owner handler and the excitement on the day will never be erased. I am so glad I was there to see her.... Chris Pinkston, Christon afghans
