Silvento IGs on the biggest UA shows of the year

11 - December - 2011

Our Italian greyhounds Silvento Diamoura Angioletta akka Amoura and Silvento Diamantine Tenera akka Tina took part on the biggest shows of the year in Ukraine - Kiev Russ 2011 and Crystal Cub 2011. Actually Tina participated only on the first show - Kiev Russ but our results were excellent as usual ... it is the 4th year when we have such success on this shows. Competition was not so great - 2-3 dogs in class but still it is not so bad for Ukraine. First day IGs were judged by John Wauben and on second we had to have Rita Rayners ... but just before the ring we fount out that she didnt come unfortunatelly ... so we had Victor Khizhnyak from Ukraine and for my surprise Amoura was signed on open class not on intermediate where i entered her. But we are very happy with the results we have as well as with the results of our 'pupil' - if it is possible to say so... - Inuus Forum Romanum who finished his Junior Champion UA title. My big congrats to the owners and breeders - Forum Romanum kennel!

Trussardi and our italian greyhounds

28 - October - 2011

Today we enjoyed great party, as I was invited with my italian greyhounds to the opening of the first TRUSSARDI shop in Ukraine, monobrand shop. As models I took Hellica Forum Romanum and Silvento Diamoura Angioletta. Also I invited there our friend Liudmila Zarudna who took her 2 IGs - Tsatsaka ZairWeise Khirkhe and Fiesta Valentyna Premium. Trussardi shop was opened just in the center of Kiev, we enjoyed champain while dogs were posing as models and charming ukrainian celebrities. After models showed new winter collection with the participation of our italian greyhounds we moved to the famouse lounge-bar OK-bar were our IGs again participated at the show with models one more time. This event was really grandiose and not only on city level - opening of this boutique is a huge event of the year in ukrainian fashion world and I'm happy that my dogs were part of it! I'm very thankful to the people who organised this opening for invitation, to models, photographers and Liuda who agreed to go with me to this party! Photos from the party will be added during the whole week and mostly to my album on FaceBook, so see you there ))

Poznan, double CACIB - Hellica Forum romanum

23 - October - 2011

What to say - we had crazy weekends in Poland! There was double CACIB show in Poznan, one of my most favorite cities in PL that I visited already for 3 times and the first time was 5 years ago when I came there to the WDS 2006 and met Helli's breeder Karolina for the first time. After awfully long way by train from Kiev - I enjoyed a cup of coffe and went for a walk around the city. Poznan became for me a city of  'getting new friends'  as every time I come there I get more and more new friends. I'm very thankful to Monika Nowak, Katarzyna Mijakowska, our good friend Ania Szynkiewicz and breeder of Helli - Piotr for all the help at the show and nice photos and for everything you did for me! Also I'm thankful to Helli's breeder Karolina for the support she provided and was nice to hear you and sorry that we didn't meet this time...Thanks God i was lucky to get polish sim-card due to often trips to Poland so it was easy to be in touch with everyone.

So ... the show...It was doube CACIB shows (22-23/10/2011). At the first day there were just 16 italian greyhounds, our Hellica Forum Romanum was entered to Junior class as she is just 11 months old. Italian greyhounds were judged by Lisbeth Mach from Switzerland and there were 3 italian greyhound bitches in the competition with Helli. So Helli made me happy by getting jCAC and becoming Best Junior! And by the way baby finished her Junior Champion of Poland title. Helli already had one jCAC from the national show but for finishing jCH PL she had to obtain jCAC from the international dog show. So at the second day 22 italian greyhounds were showed and judged by Stefan Stefik from Slovakia. He judged in a quite strickt way and prefered heigher dogs...Probably Helli became an exception as she was the only one small IG who was placed at the show. By the way by my request Stefan Stefik measured Helli - very nice when judge agrees with your requests. Helli was showed in junior class where were 6 bitches entered and Helli was placed as 4th.  In common I liked the show and very happy with Helli's results, thanks a lot to the judges Lisbeth Mach and Stefan Stefik to Helli's breeders "Forum Romanum" kennel.

So here are the results of our princess Hellica from the first day of Poland show:
Judge - Lisbeth Mach (Switzerland)- 16 IGs entered
Hellica Forum Romanum - exc-1 jCAC  jBOB Junior Champion of Poland
(Junior class / 6 IG bitches in the class)
