The same company as always - me, Tanya, Liuda and owner of our puppy Luba. 6 itaian greyhound are entered and 5 of them are from Silvento - it was crazy trip, as always ... problems with vet-control, custom and we came to the ring 1 min. before it started.

I'm thankful to all the girls for the nice company during our trip, funny talks as well and my congrats to them with all the wins.

9 - September - 2012

Our trip to F.C.I. Euro Sighthound was not the easiest one. This year F.C.I. Euro Sighthound was in Czestochowa, Poland. I put so much efforts to prepare this trip that didn't sleep several days at all...too many problems with car registration for crossing the board, thule kit finding for my car, making the certificates for dogs to enter EU and hinally helping to the girls to get their visa, thanks god I had my still valid at that time schengen visa. After all trubles we met on our way we started at 4am by my car after only 2,5 hours of sleeping with Liuda Zarudna, taking Tanya Stanishcheva and Lida Antonenko on our way ... After passing only 60 km from Kiev one member of our team fount out that forgot her passport : ) it could be really funny but actually wasn't as we had to come back to Kiev and it was early morning already with traffic jams - so we lost 2 HOURS of our time... Way to the boarder Ukraine-Poland was easy, fast and not hard at all for me...BUT polish people are not so fast on roads, our GPS  decided to play with us like and Poland was just Labyrinth Minotaur for us due to 1000 km instead of 12 hours took 16 hours of our time! When we came to the hotel it was late night already - the first thing we did was not shower or - we run to the nearest shop for the beer to selebrate our arriving. The first day of the show was F.C.I. Euro Sighthound - weather was nice, mood as well...pitty but cannot tell the same about the result, but still we were happy with them. Amoura was showed by Tanya at that day and I showed Helli, Luci and Tina. Second day of the show was Polish sighthound club show and this one dog show was more hard...especially for me as due to great celebration with girls of the first day of the show - I had terrible head acke and was ready to die, so I started to feel better only when the ring of males was finished - but still had very tired expression on my face at all photos. So as I felt awful- I asked girls to help me and Lida was nice to agree to show Tina at the ring, who was placed as 3d in open class, I showed our fat cow Amoura - this time she got VG as well due to her condition after whelping, Luci got just excellent and finally Hellica - was placed as 4th in intermediate class. All our italian greyhounds showed well during the first and second day except Helli, probably - who was sleeping in the ring - but she was excused as she had first day of the season..."with my luck". After the exhibition we run to the car and had a way to Krakow, where we stayed in very small but nice hotel with all our dogs - not far from center and without a rest as soon as we had check-in we went to the old city to eat, rest - we vere just in the center of attention of all tourist when walked through the center with 7 Italian greyhounds!!! At 5 am next day we already checked-out from our hotel and had long way to Kiev through Lviv. Polish boarder was crossed for 10 minutes and ukrainian ...  for 2,5 hours, as always happens!Way from Krakow to Kiev took 20 HOURS! I could hardly drive the car, was almost dead...After we came to sweet Kiev at 4 am, I packed Lucci and Tina's "baggage" as in 2 hours their owner came to take them beck to Dnepropetrovsk city. I'm very thankful to Tanya for her company and Liuda Zarudna, who didn't sleep for the whole way and spoke with me in order not to let me sleep on the roads. It was nice trip, hard, long but really funny and nice...

29 - July - 2012


Our sweet italian greyhound E-monsters are one month old. All puppies are active and funny, and are different by character and sweet. Silvento Eucleia will stay in Ukraine - far from Kiev, but I still hope to see her from time to time during my work at the dog-shows. The only one man - beautiful Silvento Eleusis will stay in Kiev with one wonderful couple and will be co-owned by me. The most promissing girl from the litter - Silvento Euthenia is very lazy and tender baby but is so wonderful that just has to be showed and will stay in the family as well - with Tanya.

Hellica visited all the places of interest with me in Salzburg, did great shopping with me and eat in my most loved places there. Helli was showed by me in Intermedi classm 9 bitches were entered there and she was lucky to be placed as 4th))) So I do VERY happy with her results. Except Helli I helped Karolina to show her other dogs, on the second day there was a club show in a small city Anif where helli was placed as 3d in the class from 3 bitches and Karolina's bitch Charlotte Forum Romanum became BOB - so my big congrats to Karolina one more time!
