We say 'thank you' to all, who sent us cordial congratulations by e-mail and in our guestbook, from Germany and abroad! We wish everybody a good start into the New Year. And for the end of the year, we collected the newest Lobito-Post.

December 29, 2008
Here are first photos of our puppies.

December 28, 2008
We've got our I-Litter. 3 males and 3 females. All brindled, all well.

More within short time...

December 24, 2008
We heartily wish all friends of the Little Lobitos a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year! And we've also got new Lobito-Post for the season.

December 19, 2008
On Gonzales' Blog, you can find gift coupons for those who are still looking for beautiful Galgo- and sighthound presents! So, it's worth having a closer look! We are also very happy that he has recovered from his accident. We hope he feels much better now!

December 14, 2008
In anticipation of our soon expected litter, we prepared a little photo series of Delfina and her puppies.

[Just an editorial note: from now on, we mark such extra stories in the category photo reports with the symbol .]

December 7, 2008
From the first day on, Uschi was very interested in the puppies of our H-litter. After the puppies left our house and Hilde stayed, Uschi took great care of her. Quickly, a very special Galgo-friendship has developed. Here is a little photo series of them.

December 3, 2008
What did we say? "Only one window a day!" Unfortunately, Kandis obviously didn't listen, as you can see in our newest Lobito-Post. Hopefully, Ole kept some more calendars in reserve.

If you do not only want to admire Ole in the television, but also at home in your own kitchen, you've got the opportunity to "purchase" him by a charity-auction in the internet until December 11. The highest bidder will get an exquisite six course menu for up to six people.

And just another note: we've got new photos of Garabato de Calathea.

December 1, 2008
On our photo of the month for December, Hilde discovers her first snow.

November 30, 2008
Here are the results of the Winner Amsterdam. The "Winner" titles were given to Garabato de Calathea, the father of our soon expected litter, and to his sister Gilda de Calathea. The "Junior winner" went to Grey Mountain Buenaventura. Congratulations!

November 26, 2008
Ole (left on the picture), one of the three cooks of the German television (Kabel 1) cooking series Fast Food Duell and "Dad" of Kandis and Juni, sent an Advent calendar to our Alex. He wrote: "Hello Alex, this is an Advent calendar. You may open only one window a day!!! Listen, only one! Maybe, you better give the calendar to Claudia and Thomas, because you certainly don't like chocolate ;-) Greetings, Your Ole".

November 23, 2008
The pleasant anticipation of our expected litter is really big: Talia (10) and Noah (5) already painted pictures of Bärbel, Garabato and their puppies. We are very happy about the paintings and once more heartily say thank you! In addition, the Kindergarten group of Noah now plays "little Galgos" and his mother has to explain to the other parents what Galgos are.

November 19, 2008
We've got new Lobito-Post.

November 16, 2008
Already some time ago, we reported about the World Dog Show in Stockholm and the Skokloster Summer Show in Västerås. Now, we have prepared a little photo report about our journey to Sweden, aside from dog shows.

November 10, 2008
Here is the promised photo report of our latest journey to France and Spain.

October 22, 2008
During our vacations, we've got a lot of new Lobito-Post.

October 18, 2008
As of today, our Paula is 12 years old! And everybody loves her because of her unmatched gentle and even-tempered character. During the time when we showed her at exhibitions, she was very successful. She is German and international champion of beauty and got the Verbandssieger title in the year 1999. In addition, she really liked running on coursings. But first of all, she is the mother of our litters "A" and "C" and the grandmother of the litters "E" and "F". The photo shows her during our recent vacations at the beach of Narbonne. We heartily wish for her that she keeps on being well and fit for a long time!

October 13, 2008
Since yesterday, we are back home from our vacations. We spent three weeks in France and Spain, where we met friends, saw many Galgos and, most important, gave our dogs the opportunity to run and play on the giant beaches in France as much as they want. We previously reported about the Concurso of the Spanish Club Nacional del Galgo Español in Sonseca, another report about our journey will follow. All emails which we received in the meantime will be answered soon, please have a little more patience.

In addition to that, it is a pleasure for us to send our cordial congratulations to Little Lobito Ebro (see photo above) for the title "German coursing winner", to Little Lobito Gonzales for the title "Bundessieger" at the exhibition in Tulln/A, and to Little Lobito Hormiga, who was the first of the H-litter being presented on a show. In Rostock/D, she got a "very promising" and turned out to be absolutely unimpressed by the bustling activities around her!

October 3, 2008
On September 28, 2008, a Concurso of the Club Nacional del Galgo Español took place in Sonseca close to Toledo. Here is our photo report.

August 23, 2008
Last weekend, we were in Klaffenbach (located close to Chemnitz in the East of Germany), to participate in the "Landessieger" exhibition and the "2nd DWZRV-Sieger" exhibition. Again, our Lara (Rayma LaClaudia) got 2 x BOB. Anyhow, despite the wonderful location close to the castle, only few Galgos were entered, and some of them even did not show up. Hopefully, there will be more Galgos entered next year. Here is our photo report.

August 19, 2008

Last weekend, after some years of "abstinence", we again went to the South of Germany, to participate in the 15th Sighthound Festival at Donaueschingen Castle. Here are the results.

July 26, 2008
As of today, our Lukas is 13 years old! He is still fond of running and playing in the garden, although the "young and wild ones" already outrun him easily. We heartily wish for him that he further on keeps well and fit!

July 20, 2008

July 1, 2008
Actually, we always thought that there are no daemons in our house. But since our new photo of the month for July, we're not so sure anymore.

And just another info: some days ago, a little article about the breed Galgo Español was published in the Tageblatt, a daily newspaper of Luxemburg. We've kindly got the permission to present it as a pdf document.

June 14, 2008
Reading our latest Lobito-Post, one could get the impression that all the little puppies are sleeping the whole day long. But this is definitely not the case, as we know from our own experience.

June 12, 2008
Although it already dates back one month ago, we don't want to withhold our photos from the international coursing in Tüttleben.

For a short time, Friederike is living with us. She came just by chance and is still very small. Nevertheless, she is already very fast and it was not easy to take some pictures of her. Fortunately, we've got a big garden where she can run as much as she wants.

We are currently working on the Galgo Calendar 2009 (DIN A3, 13 coloured pages, 15 Euro). We plan to bring along ordered exemplars to the next Special Galgo Show (we can, of course, also bring them along to another exhibition or send them by mail).

March 5, 2008
On Sunday, Little Lobito Gonzales once more had a great success: on the international show in Munich, Mr. Brixhe from Belgium awarded him Ex1, VDH, CAC, CACIB, BOB and the title 'Landessieger Bayern' (the female Askari Negra El Gran Matador, entered in the champion class, got an Ex1). But this wasn't it at all! Later, in the ring of group 10, judged by Mr. Sistermann, Gonzales finally got the second place. Find a report about the exhibition and more photos at Gonzales' Blog (German).

On February 6 already, Little Lobito Gerónimo and Little Lobito Estrella were shown in Brno/CZ. Both got Ex1, CAC and CACIB, the latter also was BOB. Photos of the exhibition can be found at

As we can see due to many requests, a lot of people miss our Galgo Calendar this year. Unfortunately, during the last year we were very busy with our book about the Galgo Español, so there was no time left for the calendar 2008. Nevertheless, we already started the preparations for the Galgo Calendar 2009, and we hope to have it ready by the date of the next special German Galgo exhibition which is going to take place in May.

January 1, 2008
Here's our photo of the month for January.
