It's ok, I knew what you meant , however I have had a look at the Spanish forum http://www.wolfdog.org/forum/showthr...17419&langid=8 & it seems that nothing has been "lost in translation"

We're all aware of the problems surrounding our breed, firstly through misrepresntation & secondly from those who are attracted solely because of the wolf connection.

May I suggest that a competent Spanish speaker (respectfully) suggests via the Spanish forum a change of name to "Friends of the Czechoslovakian Wolfdog"? Or if it's too difficult in Spanish & or Portuguese, why not adopt the Czech or Slovak word "Vlčák" (Czech) or Vlčiák (Slovak) as has been done in the US i.e. "Czechoslovakian Vlcak"?
