Two weeks after leaving Ghazni, we passed once more through Islam Qala. This time we were armed with our documentation and no one could take Kallila away from us. We crossed with no problem, and in two weeks were in Greece, where Kallila was given her first inoculations (we had tried in Iran and Turkey, but the serum was not available)

In October of 1973 Kallila flew with us to Montreal. We picked up our van at the port and headed towards home after one year of adventures in the East. For two years we were in contact with the AKC foreign registration department concerning the possibility of the registration of Kallila.

In November of 1977 our hopes were raised while we were in England. We learned of UK Kennel Club show Judge, Daphne Gie, who imported three Tazi's two years ealier from Afghanistan and had them registered by the UK Kennel Club. This was accomplished by having three UK Kennel Club Show Judges examine the dogs and certify that they were true to their breed. We then suggested to the AKC that the same might be applied to our case, but they replied that it couldn't possibly be done. We did gain support from The Afghan Hound Club Of America and local kennel clubs around the country, also show judges, fanciers and breeders. Hopefully to be able to register Kallila for breeding and to have her pups fully registered.

In October of 1977 we bred Kallila to Dicmars Dutchman's Britches of the Grandeur line, owned by Julia Moore of Wellfleet, Maine. On December 16 1977 Kallila whelped eight pups

OA Editors Note on the original article:

In as much as this article ran in the 1970's before being kindly offered to "Our Afghans" for reprint by Mrs. Wolsely-Lahchiouach some of her US registration battles are omitted as no longer applicable. She did get great support from Sunny Shay, Mrs. Mary Nelson-Stephenson, and other greats of those days and is now the proud owner of registered offspring of her line of true and great Afghan Hounds based on her original imports.
