1977 We bought our first saluki - Hekla Royal Amulet of Cranstal

1981 The Cranstal affix was first registered with the Kennel Club.

1984 We bred our first saluki litter.

1988 Our first Champion - Cranstal Chaos was made up. Her litter brother Cranstal Chance also gained his title.

2018 Champions Hisilome’s Leonore mish Cranstal and Hisilome’s Keepsake for Cranstal - who gained their titles within five weeks of one another - were to be the last salukis campaigned under the Cranstal affix.

During the 41 years that have covered our breeding and exhibiting career - salukis have been our family, our hobby and probably our obsession. We count ourselves truly fortunate that over the years there is so very little that we would have changed.
