Went out to a show, primarly to get Yo-Yo´s third and last CaC for his Championtitle, but also entered Isis who is 18 months and needs training. She is looking good, or better, but not really any expectations…
Yo-Yo is just about the hardest dog I have ever had to show. He wont keep his head up and have anything BUT commanding apperarence in the ring and he hates being there (and demonstrates it)… This naturally affects the way he is presented and the way he moves, so today we did´nt quite meet up to the standard as far as moving goes, so that last CaC is still missing…
But – Isis (Keltairs Flight of the Phoenix) showed reat with Ann and moved like a train with commanding appearence enough so that she could share some with Yo-Yo. Best of Breed on her first time out on a official show and later Group 3rd, and we are VERY pleased with how this day ended!

Been out seeing some new dogs lately… Since 2 of the pups from this last litter was going to two different German breeders, we thought we could take them down ourselves and visit the German Clubshow and stay with good friends at the same time!
Said and done, “Sykes” (Keltairs John Sykes) went to his new home with Peter Kannegiesser at Kennel Nettl’s Giants, and I feel confident that he will be taken care of and loved by his new owners! “Isse” (Keltairs Zakk Wylde) went to the Oelmühle Kennels and will live there together with is halfbrother “Cowboy” (Keltairs Drugstore Cowboy) and many other great dogs!
The Clubshow offered an experience of a variety of Wolfhounds, both in type, shape & quality. Some great hounds, and it felt good being there together with the winning team, as Jürgen Rösner took Best in Show with his “Zandra von der Oelmühle”.
Below is a few pictures from the show
Cowboy (18months) at the Show, placed 2nd in his class.
We strongly believe he has a great future ahead of him!
