Arrival Story:
Difficult and lengthy search to find breeders of this marvelous breed. Then there was the process of convincing the breeders that I was a suitable prospective owner. Breeders are very cautious who they sell puppes to. Once you know the breed, you can appreciate this. Bought him from a breeder in Portland, Oregon and had to fly him across country at 14 weeks. He was an instant love to us and we, to him.

He housebroke himself without any help from us. Deerhounds can't be yelled at---they get their feelings hurt. Like Greyhounds, they love your bed, sofa, food. Caution must be used when allowing these giant fellows to run. Sir Haggis has already suffered two seperate fractures on his back legs. They grow so quickly that the bones and muscles, tendons & lagaments can't keep up with each other. They are a very afffectionate breed and are safe near children, even crying babies. Definately not a guard dog, you might disturb their naps. Should not be in a single dog household. No need for frequent baths. Love to be snuggled and have tummy scrubs. Very clumsy as puppies. Haggy has more than doubled his weight and height in four months. Easy to train, they pretend to be stupid but they are crafty and smart.

I dunno know what agility means but Mom seems upbeat about it. Last year I did my training with the police department and they had some neat things to jump over and through, and a long walk board way over my mom's head. I got to figure out how to walk over chicken wire and jump through hoops with bottles hanging in front of the holes and it was a lot of fun. Mom thinks I could do real well with these kinda games played with other dogs so I hope I can do it.
I used to have fun chasing deer at the park and I could run faster than they could! Mom told me I can't catch them though, I could hurt a deer by making it fall down. I was chasing a really big deer with wooden branches hanging off it's head when all of a sudden the big deer stopped running and turned around to look at me. Then he put is head down and those branches were right at my eye level, and then the big deer started running at me. I was so scared I couldn't breathe! I turned and ran as fast as I could back to my family and hid behind them so the deer couldn't see me. That deer never did come out in the open towards me so I looked pretty silly running and panting over nothing at all. Everyone laughed at me, but I don't think they knew what danger I was in, especially since I couldn't capture the big deer and make it fall down. I hope to find out tomorrow if I can play on those agility toys and run around with some Afghan dogs. Cross your paws and wish me luck!
Licks and leans, Haggy
