Introduction, courtesy Alan Brooks - "Sheila Devitt-Gilleney started in Afghans in 1945. Carloway was already registered in 1919 by Sheila's mother, who started her daughter off in dogs with Lakeland Terriers. Carloway is the family estate on the west coast of the isle of Loews, Hebrides, part of which still belongs to Sheila."

Carloway UK Kennel Advert 1947

"The first Afghan to enter the kennel was a bitch, Kosthi of Westover, by Turkuman Dammar Pine Tree, with Geufron breeding on the dam's side. She was rather more Bell Murray than Ghazni, but was a very elegant bitch, with the most beautiful temperament. The puppy arrived at 8 weeks of age, and later, at her first show (and Sheila's) she was best bitch and reserve in show (Varieties). Sheila remembers vididly the huge entries in non classified classes. Kosthi was a super mover, and did not require much handling. All the elite were there, it was a good start to go over the cream at your first show !!"
