ODIN di COSTA RUBEA – was born on 25-04-1999



Odin di Costa Rubea was born on 25 – 04 – 1999 from QUARAH V. WULFTEN by ZORRO V. HOPER – MOOR. His well-balanced character was immediately evident, and this encouraged Fabrizio to start his training at three months. After finishing basic training (sit, lie, fetch...), he started training in the field. At the end of February he was given to FRITZ BIRKENEDER to take part in German trials. In October ODIN returned to Italy having obtained the following results: VJP 66 pt - HEGEWALD 217 points second place for shape sg (10) and coat v (12), VGP 319 points (1°Preis) Bringselverweiser (TF) (onhe Gehorsam Haarwild). With his German adventure finished, Odin took part in the Italian HUNTING season in Lomellina , Lombardy, where he continued to maintain and consolidate everything he had learned to date about blood tracking. In 2000 two further Drahthaars were born that we reared; TOSKA di Costa Rubea and his brother, born from QUIRRA v. WULFTEN by ZORRO v. HOPER-MOOR, CROLL born from the world champion in beauty BROOKE and the social champion CAM of Casa Baboni. A further two were born in 2001; ZEUS di Costa Rubea born from LAIKA v. OECHTRINGER-FORST by ODIN di Costa Rubea, and ANKA v. ERTHAL born from PINA v. WULFTEN by DARKO v. OECHTRINGER-FORST and have been trained for base commands and started the hunting activity.
We have followed in Germany the performances achieved by other known Italian dogs, the brothers TASSO, TINA and our TESSA di Costa Rubea, OLF and SARO di Costa Rubea), whose results we have omitted, here as they are covered elsewhere on this site.
Also our own ODIN di Costa Rubea acquired during this period a year of hunting experience, both on the fields of the ATC (Hunting District) "4 Mede Lomellina" in the province of Pavia, and completed an unforgettable trip to Rumania. Here, in the presence of natural game, immersed and defended in grounds extremely fit for hunting, Odin revealed all his potentiality on quartering with a perfect breed style, full gallop and a more or less wagging, but continuous, tail movement, an essential endowment of endurance on fatigue (often after seven uninterrupted hours of hunting, performed with the greatest concentration and care for four consecutive days), hare and roebuck's trail that raised casually, not seen by the dog, that lasted sometimes over 2 Km, great pointings and the usual retrievings to whom he got us used since he was a puppy.
ODIN was used on all the types of game existing in our countries (ducks, pheasant, quails, moorhens, hares and some snipes), and was used above all as a pointing dog, but also showed to be extremely useful even as a retriever of dead and wounded ducks in drains and in rice fields, during the evening waitings in September. He has followed us also in the ungulates hunting (male roebucks in Slovenia in May and females in province of Forlì in January), but luckily we never needed his intervention on blood tracks.
ODIN had by now become a friend for us, an inevitable presence in our hunting adventures, but then fate intervened. We had already suffered at her hands with the premature death of Odin’s mother, the unforgettable QUARAH v. WULFTEN, but now she dealt us another blow with the totally unexpected death of Odin himself. In October 2006, on a hot Tuscan afternoon, at the conclusion of a long and tiring day hunting, Odin was taking refreshment in a little pond, from which he went out after few minutes staggering and dropping down dead on the ground. A heart attack struck him down in only the sixth year of his life, without having ever previously needed the veterinarian.

With Odin has gone away a really great slice of wonderful times and dog/hunting experiences that will forever remain in our memory. However on a brighter note we do have Odin’s progeny to keep his and his mother’s memory alive. He sired four puppies, three with LAIKA v. OECHTRINGER-FORST: ZEUS, ZAR and ZITA di Costa Rubea, and one with BURGL v. TAUBMOOS: VOX di Costa Rubea. These are dogs with excellent structure, high quality coat with an excellent pigment, extremely levelheaded characters and with a natural game predisposition both on the ground and in the water.
The new owners of these bitches have phoned us many times to describe to us their morphological qualities, their characters and hunting exploits, and for this we are very thankful.

Even Odin, as his mother Quarah vom Wulften, has prematurely left us; unfortunately the destiny hasn't been very merciful towards him.

After the conclusion of a tiring hunting day in Tuscany, in a really hot afternoon of october, Odin was looking for refreshment in a little pond, from which he went out after few minutes staggering and dropping down dead on the ground.

An heart attack hit him on the sixth year of his life, without having ever previously need the veterinarian.

With Odin has gone away a really great slice of wonderful memories and dog/hunting experiences, that will be for ever impressed in our memory.
