Enchante Jonah Sings Hosanna M    
Jonah was the 'pick' of this litter.  He went with the person who we obtained his mother from (a 20 yr. 'show' breeder).  She promised to show him, and to return him to us if she did not.  Instead, she sold him to a pet home.  It took me 2 years to find him.  He's still happy with his family (it was not their fault), and they live in Germany now.  Jonah was never shown, but he sired our first Champion, Mex. CH Hosanna Amazing Justice : ) He lived 14 years.
  Samson Sings Hosanna M   13
  Samson and his sister, Delilah, were our very first ever show dogs.  Though I've studied genetics for about 35 years, I had to start learning showing (AND grooming) from scratch at forty-something.  Samson retired in 2003 due to a broken canine tooth, but he still loves to show.  He showed at the 2004 AHCA National Specialty Show in Veteran's Parade and Junior Handling.  He went to Rainbow Bridge 10/19/09
    ALL Samson's points were won from Bred By Exhibitor Class   13  
 Delilah Sings Hosanna
  6 Just when Delilah's show career was getting hot, she contracted Lyme disease, which ended her career, and eventually her life : (.     Delilah won our (Hosanna's) very first ever Best of Breed, and also enjoyed herding! (Awesome WORKING photos on her page.)     All except 1 point Breeder/Owner handled   6 1
 "Davey" David Sings Hosanna CGC M     Davey went to just one or two shows with me as a youngster, and he seemed to love them, but he had a much more important career in his future.  He became a wonderful Certified Therapy and Licensed Service Dog.  He lives with LOTS of children, and works with autistic children also. He's still known as 'Davey the Wonderdog'.                   19

 Hosanna Song of Moses M   9 We lost our lovely Moses to an anesthetic reaction (when he had a pimple removed).  He had 9 Champion points.  He was bred one time, and sired our FIRST American Champion, CH Hosanna Price Above Rubies.     We are sure he would have finished his Championship, but for his untimely death.     9 2 (1-2pt)
Hosanna Song of Mercy JC F   2
     MOVIE of Mercy Because we made the BIG mistake of allowing a Junior Handler to co-own Mercy, we lost her to fraud.  Her story is A Plea for Mercy - link is to the right.  An update on that here:  The person who acquired her in this underhanded way then spayed her and put her in a pet home.  I still do not know where she is. A Plea for Mercy - Lawsuit Abuse   2  
 "Michael" Hosanna's Micah at Seer M
  Micah was the 'fee puppy'.  He went to Seer's Kennel (where his mother came from), who got 1st pick from the entire litter.  As a youngster, he beat all of his brothers and sisters, and won Group I at every match.  He had a wonderful ring attitude.  He was only shown at a 'real' show once or twice.  I personally evaluated him at about 4 years old.  He had complete dentition, tight scissors bite, and in every way an excellent dog, except for more coat patterning than some people like.   Eventually, he was neutered by his owner, went to New York, and was being trained as a drug detection dog.              
"Aza" Hosanna Song of Hope F
  No attempt was made to show Aza.  So far as I know, this is the only one of our hounds who has been bred from, except the ones we've kept here, and Jonah.  She was bred against our advice, and in violation of our contract.  Unfortunately, we didn't at that time have the right language in our contract to be able to enforce it.  (we do NOW)  If this one is in your pedigree, there is information you should have.  Call Lynda, (270)432-7272 CST              
Hosanna Song of Glory F
1       Glory won our (Hosanna's) very first ever Championship point.  It was only her 2nd show, her first weekend out, and she was in 9-12 puppy class.  She   defeated major pointed adults, and was handled by a 15 yr. old Junior Handler!  She was subsequently placed on a show contract, and they sent her out with a   professional handler, who did not do her justice.  They gave up on showing her.  A couple years later, she escaped their house, and was killed by a car.  : ( Won 2nd show, from puppy class, handled by Jr.   1  
Hosanna Song of Angels F     Angel was a 'love gift' to my cousin.  I started her in the ring before she went away, hoping she would be shown later, but she never was.  She only went to a few shows with me, but she showed a LOT of promise, taking a 2 pt. Reserve Win at her very first show, at only 7 months old.  She was handled by me, and I'd only been to a few shows myself at that time.  I had offered to show Angel for my cousin, but she's been kept shaved down most of her life. Reserve Winner -2 pts- at her first show, 7mo old, br/own handled       12

 "Happy" Hosanna Amazing Peace F      Happy has been to a few shows, and won Bred By Exhibitor classes against very tough competition, but she does not enjoy showing (she will not put her tail up in the ring), so she hasn't won points.  We adore her anyway, and she's now famous as our 'Afangel'.                 12

 "Ruby" CH Hosanna Price Above Rubies JC
2 17 Mex CH Justice PUPPIES 6/1/2006 Best of Breed, judge Mr. Ralph Lemke, at Wheaton, IL.  We are not showing her much, not enough budget : (  Changed our minds about Westminster KC.  We will not go to NY, due to prohibition there.  Ruby finished her Championship on April 21, 2005, in Terre Haute, IN.  She completed her JC (Junior Courser) title at Columbia, KY 11/18/05.  We won the American Bred Class at the AHCA National Specialty show, 2004 - she was AWESOME : ) She won our (Hosanna's) very first ever Major - 5 pts from Bred By Exhibitor Class   1-5pt and 1-3pt 17 2 (1-2pt)
  "Major" Hosanna Man of War M          Major was such a gorgeous boy, and we had so much fun with him.  He was lost to lymphosarcoma at just past two years old, before his show career really got started.              
 "Kitty" Hosanna Milk and Honey JC F 1 4 1/14/06 Kitty went to Korea.  9/18/05 1st Leg of JC title - Billings, MT, 6/24/05 3 point MAJOR!      Kitty has always loved showing.  She won Hound Group I at her very first match (at just 3 months old), and won her very first show also.  Then she went to a co-owner, who didn't get her into the ring due to personal problems.  She came home to us pink-bald naked in summer 2004, and just a few months later (still nearly naked : ), won 3 Major Reserves.   Won the very first show she went to at 6 mo and 1 wk old 1 4     21  
See A Plea for Mercy - A Case of Lawsuit Abuse 2000 through 2004 We did very little showing from 2000 through spring 2004.  Our 'retirement income' budget has always restricted our access to the show rings.  Due to the person(s) who took our Hosanna Song of Mercy (see 1997 litter), and ALL those who helped them; and also with a little help from the person(s) who took our Hosanna Song of Songs (see 1998 litter), our family had almost NO resources to get our dogs into the show ring for several years.  We almost lost our farm because of these people.  Because we believe in the quality of our dogs, we have continued in spite of those who have tried to stop us, and the Blessings of the Lord have helped us to survive in spite of them all.  We've forgiven, but NOT forgotten.

 "Bliss" Hosanna Perfect Peace F     PUPPIES 3/9/06 PUPPIES 1/5/07  The lovely Bliss, like her mom, does not seem to enjoy showing.  So far, she's won a couple of Reserves without putting her tail up in the ring.  This is the Afghan Hound equivalent of 'with both hands tied behind my back'.  She's fairly young yet, so we're still hoping she'll some day change her mind.  If not, we love her anyway.              
 Hosanna Spirit of Peace F
3    Spirit went to the island of Cyprus when she was very very small.  She was shown at a few shows there with good results.  I don't hear much about her, but know she's now at Shot at Glory kennels.

  "Twinkle" Hosanna In A Twinkling F
    This was our 'pick' of this litter.  She won Hound Group I at her very first match, 3 days before she was 3 months old.  We co-owned Twinkle with Cheryl Snyder, a professional handler.  She hasn't started in the ring.  I've not  yet been able to get a better photo.  She is a light red color, but there was too much glare here to see her color.  Click her photo for an enlargement.  She was about 5 months old here.  On 9/25/05, she was returned to us by Cheryl, clipped.  With only one inch of hair, we still hope to get this gorgeous girl into the ring, but it will be awhile.

"Tex" - Sarkyvaa Hosanna Fruling Symponie M   1 Tex is Storm's 'twin' brother.  Even when they were almost a year old, I still had to look at their tails to be sure and tell them apart, even though I caught them when they popped out of their mother <G>.  They are both beautiful black masked red brindles.  Tex won his first AKC Ch point in Montgomery, AL, just before I shipped him to his owner, Mr. Agustin Granados, in Mexico City.  Agustin co-own's Tex's sire.   1

SUMMARY and GOALS   As of 10/09, we have produced 12 Champions - 1 Mex, and near AM Ch, and 9 Am (AKC) Champions.  One of those is also a Canadian CH, and several have earned JC (Junior Courser) titles.  Several of our dogs over the years have been certified therapy dogs, and a couple were also service dogs.  A couple of them did some HERDING, and one was even being trained for drug detection.  This is a VERY versatile breed.  As of 2007, our financial constraints have abated. God has blessed us.  My kids are growing up, getting married and starting their families, and aren't helping with the dogs so much, so we now have the help of a professional handler, Jana Klein.  We think she's doing a WONDERFUL job!   So far (1995-2008), we have produced a grand total of 15 litters over 14 years, an average of 1.07 litters/year. 12/07/2010 22 192 11
Past   We have always intended to finish Championships on some of our dogs, but we had to start learning handling and grooming from scratch.  We have had our share of bad luck, and also there have been a few people who made our challenges much greater.  Our dogs had almost never been in the ring with experienced professional Afghan Hound handlers.  As of April 25, 2005:  A grand total of 7 times in our entire history, an experienced Afghan Hound handler has handled our dogs.  Two of those that were not wins, I had won Bred By class, and the handler only did winner's class.  Of those 5 shows that a handler did solo, there were 3 wins, one a 2 pt. Best of Breed, and another a first point by our 6 month and 1 week old puppy at her very first show (over major pointed adults).  Other all breed professional handlers over all these years have won a total of 9 points with our dogs.  Our children, Edwin, Rose, and Richard, have won a total of 27 of our points, including a 2 point best of breed, and 6 majors.  Other people's children have won a couple of the points also, including our very first ever point, and a Best of Breed over an adult Champion from 9-12 puppy class.  A novice co-owner also had a 2 point win (over professionals) her very first time in the ring with one of our dogs.    
 My First Show Dog   From most of our litters, the majority have gone to pet homes, even though most (given competent handling and conditioning) could have finished Championships. On most of the litter's pages, there are links to evaluation photos of the entire litter, stacked, head studies, and more.  We have not yet had available to us experienced 'show homes' for our dogs.  We have done the best we can with them ourselves, and have been learning our skills as we go.  Because we are retired, and still have several children at home to support, our budget has always been quite limited.  Our debt has grown tremendously to finance all these activities.  All of the dogs we have ever put into the ring could have, and should have finished Championships.  We have continued, and will continue with our Hosanna Afghan Hounds, because we believe in their excellent quality.  We WILL finish some (we hope many) of their Championships.  We hope that some day more of those who want an excellent dog to show (experienced or not - if WE can do it...: ), will try one of ours.  For us, it's still about a better dog.    
Current Litters Apologies for some of these cell formats that just don't want to come out quite right.  This is a MS Excel file made into a webpage.  It seems to have some limitations, and I'm short of time.
