This year's season has started! And the "Düsseldorfer Windhund-Rennverein" again has proven its innovative potential: this time, the CAC exhibition in Issum-Sevelen took place on two days of this weekend; one part of the sighthound breeds were judged on Saturday, the other part on Sunday. It surely was making a virtue of necessity, since the hall was just spacious enough for two rings, in which Mrs. Raufelder and Mrs. Quaritsch-Fricke judged on both days. But the number of 221 registered sighthounds shows, that the concept was well accepted. So, we spent a nice day in Issum, which at the end was crwoned with the success of Little Lobito Azuela, who became BIS of the day. Here are the results >>>

Together with some French sighthound friends, Roderick Russell-Jones (owner of Chips, the brother of our Paula) is constructing a new sighthound racing track in a little village not far away from Perpignan. A website already exists. Then, our dogs had the opportunity to run, play and enjoy the sun at the almost deserted beaches of Valencia and Alicante. After that, we visited the kennel de Valle Estrella. Since mid of 2003, Bartolomé Ramírez Castro, acting president of the Spanish Galgo Club, is the mayor of Villa del Río close to Córdoba. A lot of improvements are already visible! Next stop of our journey was Torrijos, where we - together with our friend Susanna Sáez - visited the start of the final competitions for the Campeonato Copa del Rey. Due to a press-pass, we could be right in the middle of the event and were able to take a lot of interesting photos, which we will publish soon. At the end of our journey, further visits at different kennels were on our programme, among them Randeros in Valencia and Rayma in Castellón. Now, we have to get used again to the cold weather and then we will select the best of our 779 photos...
