Geocache Description:


 LV - Ievads - šī ir 23 slēpņu sērija veltīta kurtiem. Tā sastāv no 19 slēpņu takas slēpņiem, diviem bonusiem un diviem papildus uzdevumiem. Ejot slēpņu taku neaizmirsti ievākt vērtības no pirmajām lapām - kopā astoņas, priekš bonusa. Visas 19 uzdevumu atbildes saglabā, jo tās būs nepieciešamas vienā no papildu uzdevumiem (Kurti)! Veiksmi!

 Uzdevums – izlasi zemāk esošo tekstu un atrodi kurai kurtu šķirnei atbilst šis apraksts. Nosaukums latviski! Ja ir vairāki vārdi, raksti toskopā. Izmanto nosaukumu, kurā visi vārdi latviski.

--------------------------------------------------

 Šī suņa siluets ir masīvs, bet elegants. Suņa svars ir ap 54,5 kg, kucēm ap 40,9 kg. Ķermeņa garums ir nedaudz lielāks par ķermeņa augstumu skaustā. Suņiem tas ir virs 79 cm, kucēm virs 71 cm, vēlamais augstums ir 81-86 cm. Krūškurvis dziļš, plats. Mugura ir taisna un gara, krusti ieslīpi. Priekškājas ir platas un līdzenas, pakaļkājas spēcīgas, slaidas ar izteiktu apakšējās locītavas leņķi. Pēdas apaļas. Aste ar bagātīgu apmatojumu ir gara, ne pārāk tieva, taisna vai mazliet izliekta, galā tā sniedzas līdz zemei. Apmatojums ir pinkains, rupjš uz muguras, uz astes un kājām, mīkstāks uz galvas, krūškurvja un vēdera. Uz purna un uzacīm tas veido rupjas bārkstis. Viļņains apmatojums nopietni samazina suņa vērtību izstādē. Kakls ir spēcīgs un samērā garš. Šiem suņiem ir gara, vienmēr augstu pacelta galva ar ieslīpu pieres kaulu, purns sašaurinās deguna virzienā. Degungals un lūpas tikai melnas krāsas. Žokļi ir spēcīgi, vēlami ar šķērveida sakodienu, kaut gan taisns sakodiens ir pieļaujams. Acis ovālas formas, izteiksmīgas, pēc standarta vēlamas tumšas. Ausis nelielas, krokotas, novietotas tālu no purna, pieguļ pie galvas. Apmatojums ir tumši vai gaiši pelēks, zilganpelēks, sarkans, melns, tīri balts, ruds, kviešu un krēma krāsas. Ir iespējams melns svītrojums.

 Tas ir mierīgs, labvēlīgi noskaņots dzīvnieks. Nav piemērots paklausības sacensībām, jo, tāpat kā vairums citu kurtu, nemīl atkārtoti izpildīt vienas un tās pašas komandas, turpretim sadzīvē nesagādā sarežģījumus saviem saimniekiem. Ir labs sargs, bet arī ar viņa izskatu vien bieži pietiek, lai atvairītu personas ar sliktiem nodomiem. Šis suns parasti ir pacietīgs saskarsmē ar bērniem. Pret citiem suņiem izturas lojāli. Sabiedrībā cenšas labi uzvesties un neliek sevi manīt. Paklausībai pie saites jābūt nevainojamai, jo noturēt šo suni, ja viņš raujas prom, var būt ļoti grūti.

 Šī suņa skelets augšanas periodā ir diezgan trausls. Līdz 18 mēnešu vecumam kucēns ir jāpasargā no liekas piepūles. Pastaigām jābūt biežām un īsām. Kad kucēns spēlējas ar citiem suņiem, ir jānovēro noguruma pazīmes un, ja nepieciešams, jāpārtrauc spēle, paņemot viņu pie saites. Jauns suns nekādā gadījumā nedrīkst piedalīties kursinga treniņos vai saimnieka riteņbraukšanas nodarbībās. Jaunības pārpūles sekas izpaužas kaulu deformācijā un agrīnā artrozē pieaugušam dzīvniekam. Barībai jābūt sabalansētai un izbarotai vairākās ēdienreizēs, lai nepārslogotu kuņģi. Barošanā jāseko audzētāja norādījumiem. Kažoks prasa minimālu kopšanu, pietiek ar ķemmēšanu reizi nedēļā. Mazgāšana nav nepieciešama. Šo suni var turēt dzīvoklī pie noteikuma, ka tas neatrodas augšstāvā, mājā bez lifta, jo pastāv risks, ka vecs, taču vēl ne slims suns vairs nespēj uzkāpt pa kāpnēm.

 Suns nav ilgdzīvotājs. Tā vidējais dzīves ilgums ir 6-9 gadi. Šī šķirne ir ģenētiski uzņēmīga pret vairākām slimībām, no kurām visizplatītākā ir osteosarkoma (kaulu vēzis) - 25% šo suņu mirst no tās. Dilatācijas kardiomiopātija arī nav reta šajā šķirnē. Sunim sastop arī progresīvo tīklenes atrofiju. Kā jau lielajiem kurtu suņiem arī šim sunim ir paaugstināts kuņģa dilatāciju volvulusa risks.

--------------------------------------------------

 The defining characteristic of this dog is its imposing height; it is the tallest breed of dog. But a good breed example is more than just a tall dog. It is a sturdy, yet swift dog, capable of running down and killing large animals. It has a general greyhound build, only larger and stockier. The legs are long, the body comparatively narrow, the loin slightly arched, the chest deep and the waist moderately small. Like most sighthounds, the tail is long and carried low. Add to this a harsh, wiry coat and you have a dog that can withstand cold, damp weather and run through thick brush without getting scratched. These dogs guardians would add that the best part about the coat is the distinctive long eyebrows and beard that impart a noble expression. Just how big are these gentle giants? The males are at least 32 inches tall, and 36 inches is not uncommon. They weigh at least 120 pounds; again, many weigh much more. Even if they were to curl up (which they never do), that's a big dog!

 Personality: These dogs have a heart as big as the rest of them. They are gentle, noble, sensitive and easygoing. Despite the fact that they can run at great speed, most of their actions around the house are in decidedly slow motion, and they are definitely not snap-to-it obedience prospects. They will eventually mind you, just at their own pace! Just under the surface of their gentle exterior does lie the nature of a coursing hunter, so this breed dog owners must be vigilant when outdoors. Like all sighthounds, these dogs love to chase animals that are running away from them, and they can take their time responding to your calls to come back. Yet these dogs are generally model citizens with other dogs, pets and children. Their great size is usually enough to scare away intruders; this is fortunate, as most these dogs are pacifists and not great protection dogs.

Living With: The major consideration any prospective these dogs guardian needs to make is the matter of size. These dogs need room to stretch out and be comfortable; they are the size of another person — a person who takes up even more room because they do not walk upright. They enjoy a quiet life, and as long as you take them out for a good walk or run once a day, they will be content to sprawl around your house. Think beyond your house; where will such a large dog fit in your car? Can you control a dog that large? What if you ever had to pick him up because he was sick or hurt? Remember that everything that goes with a big dog is big: big feed bills, big medicine bills, big boarding bills — so think big!  These dogs much prefer cold weather to warm and will often seek out a cold hard floor in the summer months. Calluses often form on their elbows because of this, and these can become unsightly and even uncomfortable for the dog. Grooming is not difficult. The hair does not mat, but the coat should be combed a couple of times a week and dead hair should be stripped (pulled) out twice a year. Otherwise the dog will look shaggy and unkempt. These dogs do not shed. The beard can become dirty from food and should be washed regularly, and water drips from the beard after the dog drinks.

History: These dogs is of ancient origins, mentioned as long ago as 391 AD in Rome, where it was famed as a gladiator and courser. One of these dogs named Aibe is indirectly credited with starting a war in the 12th century, when his owner refused an offer from the King of Ulster of 4000 cows in trade for him. In Ireland, these imposing dogs were favored by Irish chieftains for hunting wolves and Irish elk. Such was their bravery that the breed name in Ireland is Cu Faoil; "Cu" means brave. In the late 1800s, these dogs became nearly extinct in Ireland because of the practice of giving away these dogs to visiting nobility, the extinction of the wolf in Ireland, and the 1845 Irish famine. Today's these dogs are recreated from the last existing dogs crossed with the Scottish deerhound, Great Dane, borzoi, and Tibetan wolfdog. By the late 1800s, the breed was once again thriving, and it has remained one of the most recognized and admired breeds in the world.
