EIWC Hall of Fame
Karla dei Mangialupi
Karla dei Mangialupi was born January 13, 2008 and, in Nörten-Hardenberg, was therefore nearly 8 and a half years old.
She has not had a particularly intense show career, but she actually began showing at an EIWC Show, in 2008 in Slovenia, where she won the Baby Class.
Her mother, Lavinia dei Mangialupi, was chosen as the best veteran at the 2012 EIWC Show in Italy.
Her half-sister, Ada dei Mangialupi, also a daughter to Pitlochry's Zardoz, a hound we own that has contributed greatly to the quality of our dogs, had won the BIS at the 2010 EIWC Show in Denmark. So Karla was continuing a grand family tradition.
Karla, who was mated only once to Just in Time of First Avenue. In addition to her 3 puppies, she grew-up Queen Bee dei Mangialupi, since her mother couldn’t nurse the baby.
Karla lived with us until she was over 7 years old when we decided to entrust her to my dear friends Laura and Antonio, as we already had another 4 hounds at home that were older than her. Our friends obviously took the greatest care of her and they brought her back to us for this event in great shape, both physically and mentally.
She has always shown to be a very gentle, even if determinated, bright and sensitive hound, according to the Irish proverb: « true strength lies in gentleness ».
