I GIUDICI 2024

Lyn Hewson

I am honoured to have been invited to officiate at this prestigious International Show.

I awarded my first CCs in Afghan Hound Dogs at Blackpool Championship Show in 1997, followed later by Ridgebacks in 2009 and Borzoi in 2017.  I owned Afghans who were consistently in the cards when we had entries of 30 – 40 in each class.  My biggest winner was our Multi Champion Ridgeback, Rekaylahn Blaze, JW, ShCM.  Blaze was bred by Reg and Kay Bean and was the winner of two General Championship Show Hound Groups and multiple Best in Show awards at Breed Club Shows.  She had been awarded a total of 30 CCs by the time she retired at the age of 9 years old.  My interest in Borzoi came through my close friend, Linda Worthy, having owned dogs in partnership. I spent many years as a Committee Member of the Northern Borzoi Association and am currently a Committee Member of the Borzoi Club.

I served as Secretary of the East of England Afghan Club for 25 years and, having resigned from the role in 2022, I was then appointed Chairman.

I became a Member of the Royal Kennel Club in 2009.

As this is my first visit to Italy, whilst I am very much looking forward to judging, I am also delighted to be given the chance to see some of the beautiful sites for which Italy is so famous.
