was registrated by FCI through the Norwegian Kennel Club in 1974 and
by The English Kennel Club in 1975, but it all started when Knut
introduced his first greyhound bitch into the Blütecher’s household in
1971, when he was a teenager.
The very first
greyhound was a 8 weeks red bitch puppy, who became Int Norw Swed Fin
Ch Fin W-75 Dogcastle’s Orbits Pride. Her very special personality and
noble bearing made them want another, and then yet another...
bloodlines from the famous RP and Treetops kennels in England and
later included the Solstrand kennels with several lines to Eng Ch
Treetops Hawk, through his offspring as Riverbank Playboy, Int Ch
Treetops Rising Pheasant and Eng Am Ch Seagift Parcancady Royaltan.
For Showline these dogs were a lesson in breed type, in balance,
combining strength and elegance.
Cecilie and Knut imported the California born white and red bitch Int
Norw Swed Fin Ch Solstrand Autumn Leaves of Showline and in 1978 came
the English born Int Norw Swed Fin Ch Solstrand Deep Blues of
Showline. Even these magnificent bitches were strongly linebred to
Hawk. The last one became a major cornerstone in the time to come, now
in the 8th generation behind their latest litter of
has a very small breeding programme they have owned and/or bred some
very successful top winning greyhounds and even whippets. Some of
these top winners have had an important impact for other breeders as
has been in the spotlight in the Scandinavian rings ever since their
establishment in 1971. In this review we would like to present some of
the more famous greyhound and whippet champions past and present.
Knut got his judging license
approved by the Norwegian Kennel Club in 1983 for some of the
sighthound breeds, and later on even for the other sighthound breeds
as well. During the years he has been most fortunate to judge in
some 20 different countries at some of the largest sighthound events
through out the world.
