Happy 1st Birthday to all our beautiful Charmed puppies!
Born one day after St Patrick's Day March 18th, 2015

Sire GCH Bainbridge Frank Sinatra
and
Dam CH Okira vom Luchemere Bruckchen

18 puppies with 14 surviving.  These 14 puppies each carry a living tribute
to our Charm in their names as well as having been born so close to one
of our favorite holidays.  They are off to a good life and a charmed life with
all their new families.  From this litter Lisa and Teresa kept 3 beautiful girls we
are so blessed and proud to have them in our lives

Sandy, Bear and PI  Happy Birthday sweet babies!
Happy St Patrick's Day - 2016

Wow what a turn-out.  After the small population
explosion of wolfhounds in our little corner of
Arkansas.  We now have a good number of
new families and their wolfhounds join us in
our Annual St Patrick's Day Parade.  Lisa and I
have been doing this parade since 2002 with
then just two wolfhounds our sweet
Jasmine and Clancy.

To the right is a group picture.  If you click on the
picture it will open up to an album with more
pictures of our fun and happy day.
Happy 1st Birthday to our Beautiful Knock on Wood Puppies!
Litter that was planned for fall of 2015 arrived a little earlier
June 23,2015 thanks to Franky and Jazz

Sire: GCH Bainbridge Frank Sinatra
and
Dam: CH Taryn All That Jazz

Big, beautiful litter of 9 live puppies.  All brindles some with really dark brindling
we like to call a calico coloring.  All the registered names of these puppies
were that of wood or trees.  Some very creative names.  The theme came
to use after we had conformation that Jazz was pregnant and Teresa said
"Knock on Wood I hope Jazz and Puppies are okay" since we were not prepared
for a litter so soon after the Charmed litter in March.

Lisa and Teresa kept 3 puppies:  Thor, Sassy and Roo

What to expect from Mt Carmel.
First off as proud as we are of all the puppies that are representing Mt Carmel, as pets and in public events, we know there is not a
single one that is perfect.  There are going to be faults, conformation and even in character.  
Our breeding history: We had our first litter in 2004 of 6 puppies all but two lived 8 to 10+ years.  Since that first litter we waited for the right pair
that met strict health screenings taking almost 11 years to achieve.  As well as being blessed with the opportunity to produce a litter that would
bring our line closer to reaching our phenotype.  Years of being careful not to breed beautiful sweet and loved wolfhounds due to health or
serious conformation issues, all the money and time researching and being patient in our endeavors.  We were finally prepared for our first two
litters of 2015 however we ended the year with 2 planed and one OOPS litter.    
.  We screened each and every home, we kept puppies till 10 weeks of age or older.  We did Liver Shunt testing on each puppy. Between 5 and
6 weeks of age did carefully planed outings for socializing, collar and leash training.  Every puppy left microchiped, fully vaccinated and wormed
except for rabies.  Every puppy left with sales contract and co-ownership with breeders to ensure no indiscriminate breeding occurs.  Every
puppy was personally delivered by the breeders to each new owner.  Lots of traveling.  We keep in contact with every puppy owner and
available for any crisis that may arise.  Did we make any money?  NO BUT OUR VET DID and we are still paying off debit  we accumulated by
these beautiful puppies.  That is all part of our commitment to improving the breed and trying to produce the healthiest and well adjusted
puppies we can.  If you would like to know more please contact us at teresa1@ipa.net or through this website's contact form.

Showing females
and trying to
schedule around
times they are in
season is not an
exact science.
To lessen the
stress of
traveling with a
young intact
male it was best
for all to leave  
Sandy home.
Quick get together with visiting Mt Carmel family.  Brian and Jo newly wed and on their honeymoon
traveling through Arkansas on their way to Texas.  Also brought their sweet boy Malachi to share
the trip and adventure.  We got together with other Mt Carmel family and joined them in a fun filled
afternoon running the dogs through a water park and sharing the excitement with lots of kids and
their families. As you would guess correctly our group drew a lot of attention.  Above one last pose
of our extended Mt Carmel family and their wolfhounds.  9-26-2016
