It is amazing, what you can find in the internet! Who is still looking for a nice present or who wants to make use of the christmas time to do some handicrafts, could e.g. fold an Origami Galgo. The detailed instructions can be found (as a pdf-file) on the Chilean website Have a lot of fun!

Nevertheless, they did a good run (and due the weather and some other delays, there was no second run). Valentino got 57 points and the CACC, Delfina got 49 points and the RCACC.

August 7, 2005
Today, the last two puppies left our home and we have to get used to the peace ;-). We conclude, as always, with our portrait series. Now, we are very curious to see how the little ones develop and in addition, we are looking forward hopefully to having puppies again next year.

The first puppies already live with their new families and also the others don't have to wait for long until they will be picked up. A short glance at our last photo series shows that we all have good reasons to be very happy about that ;-) Since the little ones start being interested in those things which are forbidden.

July 30, 2005
Today, the Tammsvik Summer Show took place in Sweden. The BOB was given to the female Rayma Itaca and the best male was Ukelele's Litri. In addition, we have got the results of this year's coursing and exhibition of the Club du SLAG, which took place last weekend in Le Pouget/France.

Well, from time to time, the living room has to be vacuum-cleaned or wiped - which means that the dog beds have to be displaced. This, of course, is unacceptable for a real princess, as you can see on our latest photo of the month.

The rescued buzzard has got his freedom again and Claudia was allowed to let him free. The newspaper Westfälische Rundschau even released a detailed photo article in the local part of its today's issue! "Without human help, the buzzard would not have been able to escape the barbwire trap" said Thorsten Kestner, vice-chairman of the animal shelter in Gedern. "It was stuck, the rest would have been done by a marten or fox."

April 21, 2005
Here is new Lobito-Post from El Niño and Aragón.

April 19, 2005
Yesterday, our Galgos saved the life of an injured buzzard. The raptor got entangled in a barbwire off the path, and could barely be discovered because of its "camouflage". Nevertheless, it couldn't avoid attracting the attention of Alex & Co. An expert for wild birds, who was immediately called, took it to a private wild birds hospital (, where they took care for it. Most probably, it can be re-released next week already.
