Its the first time ever, that the same kennel wins Best In Sweeps, winners Dog, Winners bitch and BOB at that show, all under 3 different breeder-judges, who are in the breed for decades, what makes this win even more important and special !

..."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....
