Sulhamstead Mona, winner of CC and Best of Breed at the
Hound Show
SULHAMSTEAD MAESTRO, by Ch. Sulhamstead Max ex
Ch. Sulhamstead Merle, at 7 months
The Sulhamstead Kennel has suffered a heavy loss in the death
of Ch. Sulhamstead Max, a sire who has made his mark in
England, Europe and America and whose progeny are famous
for their powerful hindquarters and high head carriage. His last
puppies from Ch. Sulhamstead Maria and Ch. Sulhamstead Merle
Reserve Best in Show at the Guildford Open Show. Sulhamstead
Maximum won his Breed Class and was Reserve Best in Show at
Henley; won the Dog C.C. and Best in Breed Hound Ch. Show and was Reserve C.C. at Edinburgh Ch. Show.
Sulhamstead Mogul by Ch. Sanctuary Brave Knight ex Ch. S.
will, I think, add to his reputation.
Sulhamstead Match has already been Best
of Breed and Reserve Best Hound in the
Group, Southampton Open Show, at 10
months old and followed that up by win-
ning his Breed Class and the Any Variety
Puppy Class at the Hound Ch. Show.
Latest news, he won the Dog C.C., Irish
Guards Shield, Type Cup and Brabyns
Cup, L.K.A. Ch. Show at 13 months old.
His sisters, Melissa won her two classes
at L.K.A., Marta won two Variety Classes
at Beckenham Open Show and one in the
U.S.A. has obtained her C.D. qualification
and won a point towards her title.
Another young hound by Max, Sulham-
stead Moke, has done a lot of winning in
Variety Classes and was Best of Breed,
won all his Variety Classes and was
Ch. Sulhamstead Merle

Sulhamstead Merman ex Ch. Sulhamstead
Mirth, winner of 7 C.C.s. Latest C.C.
and Best of Breed, L.K.A.,also the
Hound Group

Maria, won the Dog C.C. and Best of Breed
at Blackpool Ch. Show but I am afraid his
career will be cut short due to the after
effects of the car crash he was in last year.
Ch. Sulhamstead Merle has won 7 C.C.s
and on Nov. 2 at the L.K.A. Ch. Show won
the Bitch C.C., Best of Breed Graham Shield
and the Hound Group and is the dam of
some very promising puppies who will
make their debut later.
Proof of the all-round high quality hounds
in this kennel is that the seven hounds
shown at the L.K.A. Ch. Show, which is
also the club show of the Irish Wolfhound
Club, won all their classes, the Dog C.C.
and Reserve C.C. and the Bitch C.C.
Needless to say the condition of these
hounds is a great credit to the staff of the
Sulhamstead kennel. (Florence Nagle)
