Storm is a happy, sweet-natured and handsome fellow who loves just about everything! He is masculine and substantial with strong bone and very sound movement. He has an excellent, well-shaped headpiece with correct parallel head planes and a strong underjaw. One of his finest assets is his outstanding front. I am looking forward to seeing what the future has in store for this boy!
Despite his young age, Storm has achieved a lot in the show rings. He won Best Male and BOS with CC at his very first official show in junior class when he was only 9 months and 1 day old! The following weekend he was Best Male 2nd with the Swedish CC at MyDOG International KC Show in stiff competition. At 10 months he was BOB and Best In Show Junior at a national all breed show. At 11 months he won the group at Kristiansand International KC show, and the following month he was Group 4th at Bergen International. At 13 months he won BOB and Group 3rd at Hamina International KC show and BOB, BIG-1 and BIS-3 at Helsinki International KC show in Finland! The following month he won BOB and Best Male 2nd at the double International KC show in Vejen with two Danish CCs!
At the Pharaoh Hound Club of America National Specialty 2014, he won Winners Dog with a 5-point major. His next trip to the USA resulted in a BOS-win with a 4-point major at Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show from the Bred-By Exhibitor class under respected Sighthound specialist Mrs. Gayle Bontecou! The Westminster BOB went to his litter sister GCh. RBIS SBIS Bazinga A Dream of Spring for Mia "Summer".
Storm went Specialty Best In Show at the official Finnish Pharaoh Hound Club specialty "Farkkushow" in August 2015 under Mrs. Gabriela Veiga, Portugal, in an entry of 55 Pharaoh Hounds - the biggest entry in the breed anywhere in the world in 2015!
Three weeks later, he went Specialty Best In Show at the Norwegian Podenco Specialty in a record entry of 80 dogs under Mr. Wim Wiersma, the Netherlands!
Storm absolutely loves being in the show ring and he is a true pleasure to show.
Storm has also had a flying start on the lure coursing field. He got his QC (Qualified Courser) during the National specialty weekend in Cape Cod, USA, September 2014. When he got back to Norway, he earned his lure coursing license with ease. His first trial resulted in 1st place (out of 7) with a Swedish lure coursing CC! The following weekend, he was BOB (out of 3) with a Norwegian lure coursing CC! A few months later he became a European Coursing Champion 2015 at the European Coursing Championship in Finland - the biggest lure coursing event anywhere in the world!
