Saturday  Conformation Judge:

MRS. JAN SWAYZE-CURRY of Columbia, Kentucky, was born into the pure-bred dog family of Louis and Peggy Swayze, who started Longlesson Kennel in the late 1940s. Her parents bred over 75 champion Afghan Hounds and Dachshunds. Mrs. Swayze-Curry became an assistant to all-breed handlers Houston and Toddie Clark in 1968 which would lead to her own professional dog handling career specializing in hound breeds. She has finished more than 50 Afghan Hounds and has personally bred more than 100 Whippet champions. As a professional handler, she finished more than 200 dogs for other breeders and owners. The Longlession Kennel heritage continues with Mrs. Swayze-Curry and her daughter, Graham Swayze-Miller, who followed her mother’s lead to become a successful professional handler. She is approved to judge Afghan Hounds, Borzoi, Dachshunds, Pharaoh Hounds, Whippets, and Junior Showmanship.

Sunday Conformation Judge: 

Cheslie Pickett Smithey of Sugar Valley Georgia.  Cheslie’s original breed was her family’s beautiful papillons. She was involved in all facets of the sport of purebred dogs since the early 1990s. For The Picketts, the sport of showing dogs is truly a family affair. Papillons are their passion and are part of their family.  Cheslie married into Whippets and has bred and owned some of the top whippets in the world. She handled Bourbon to over 100 Best in Shows. She and her husband Justin Smithey own Pinnacle whippets in Sugar Valley, GA.
