Donaueschingen Sighthound Festival 2017

Europes Greatest Specialty has come to an end once again. An entry of 1500 sighthounds and Mediterranean breeds. Many quality dogs, wonderful people, impressive moments and a lot of emotional ones this year too. I showed only two dogs in an entry of 64 Greyhounds and we did quite well!!!
