Quinta vd Stadt-Hamburg (black with white markings) (Ferry von Wilhelmsrecken x Pia von der Stadt Hamburg) Born April 4, 1946
Progeny of Ch Wodka vd Stadt-Hamburg:
Although there was a restriction placed on the breeding Wodka because of the color-crossing, influential breeders, including Carl Daniels (the DDC Studbook Chairman and had been co-chairman of their Judges’ Committee) and Willi Glittenberg (an official on the Judges committee) requested and received permission to use him.
Wodka was the dam of three outstanding harl males:
- the great producer in the US CH I.W. Harper vd Stadt-Hamburg (Wodka was bred to CH Rux-Conny v Obertraubling and on August 13, 1957 produced I.W. Harper, Helios and Haila vd Stadt Hamburg.)
- the 1959 Bundessieger Jagla vd Stadt-Hamburg (Wodka was bred to Fant vd Kreuzschanze and produced Jagla vd Stadt-Hamburg)
- and one of Germany’s favorite studs Marko vd Kreuzchanze 44107. (Wodka was purchased by Willi Glittenberg, again bred to Fant vd Kreuzschanze and produced Marko vd Kreuzschanze 44107) Marko vd Kreuzschanze 44107(harl) (Fant vd Kreuzschanze x Wodka vd Stadt-Hamburg). Born: December 5, 1958. Owner: Dr. Heinrich Baumann, Giessen. Breeder: Willi Glittenberg, Muenster. Younger brother to Jagla vd Stadt Hamburg. Could not received titles because of a blunt calloused tail tip from tail banging, but was an excellent dog and very much in demand as a stud. Bred to Cora V Obensiebeneick and produced the great CH Ulf von Schloss Dellwig.
All three harls made their mark and influenced the breed in both the United States and Germany.
