7 - June - 2016

Italian sighthound Belarus, Minsk 2016We have 2 new Champions! Our Italian Sighthound Lucilla Forum Romanum and cirneco dell'Etna Creta del Gelso Bianco (import from Siciy) took part at double CACIB dog-shows in Minsk, Bearus. We can tell how it was funny when the car was broken in 50 from the boarder UA-BY how our appartments were cancelled in Minsk but there were more positive moments during this trip. We are thankful to the judges of PLI & Cirneco: Onishchenko and Paunovic - who judged cirneco ring and to Jurate Butkiene (LT) and Francisco Ruiz Rodrigue (Spain) who judged PLI ring as wel as to all my friends who helped me with my broken car far away from home and who supported me during the trip to Belarus and were with me till the last moment. Italian sighthound Lucci has finished Champion of Belarus title and our cirneco baby who is only 10 months old ... and had competiotion with other cirneco in the ring from Russia and Finand was Best of Breed both days and became Junior Champion of Belarus.

cirneco dell'etna Minsk dog-show ChanpionIt is great to have such friends and even reaching Minsk without my own car at 6 am we were happy and smiled. My huge THANKS to Segey Dmitrenko who helped so much and showed our italian greyhound both day in the ring. Regarding Cirneco dell'Etna - it was the first time for Siri to be showed in competition. Siri had 3 shows in junior class in Ukraine before and finished jCH UA but this time it was really exciting to have 2 more cirneco in the ring. Cirneco male from Russia Mia Santo's Atillo during 2 days got his 2*jCAC in junior class and female from Finland was showed in Champion class Trucker's Absolutely Fabulous and took during 2 days her 2*CAC & 2*CACIB. Both cirneco finished their jch and Ch BY. My conrats to their owners and breeders. It was a pleasure to be showed with your dogs.

Cirneco del Etna - our new Junior Champion

23 - May - 2016

Cirneco champion ukraine SilventoCirneco dell'Etna - Creta del Gelso Bianco (imp. Sicily) was a real star this weekend in Chernigiv Cup dog-show (CAC/UA). We are thankful to the judges U. Gergel and V. Shiyan and to our friend Sergej Dmitrenko who really helped me a lot and made this wonderful picture. Our cirneco Siri has finished Junior Champion of Ukraine title being just 9 months old ❤️ And even not her first season nor dozen of birds in the show-ring when she has decided to start her hunting just at the moment when judge made her description - didn't play any role as she did it ... Siri became not only Best in Group-3 among about 10 breeds of 5th group but also was BEST in SHOW junior - 2 among 30-40 juniors of all the breeds at the show. I do love her for her tenderness and the way she is showed.

Cirneco at the dog-show in Ukraine - our Junior Siri

10 - May - 2016

silvento cirneco-creta del gelso biancoCirneco Creta del Gelso Bianco (import Sicily) was showed at the national dog-show 2*CAC in Kiev, Ukraine. We are thankful to the judges and our friends who helped me all 2 days long during the shows. At the second day ring of the 5th group was judged by a very strict judge - Elena Agafonova and more than a half of the dogs left the ring without a title at all or with "very good" mark being even the only one from the breed. With not the best optimistic mood we have entered the ring and were really happy to have our small title ))
One conclusion came to our mind as a result of our photo-session after the ring, I suppose I will start "photographer-animalist" courses for my friends as from 100 photos I have just one - that you may find on the left. But we do promise to make normal pics at the end of the month when Siri will finish her jCH title.

Italian sighthound - healthy Silvento team, coursing team

4 - May - 2016

Italian sighthound - healthy Silvento team, coursing teamHealthy italian sighthound is not only a good looking dog, for us it should be a dog who visit vet for blood test several times a year and that must be checked once a year for eyes, knees and for sure heart problems. We are happy to say that after a long 5 km walk and coursing short training our two italian greyhounds have passed vet test, result you may find on their personal web-pages. Our Hellica Forum Romanum who has missed her mating again, having rest for almost 2 years, due to my trips and our blue male of italian sighthound Silvento Eleusis, our coursing italian greyhound boy - are totally healthy 🙂

Cirneco & Italian sighthound judged by Andras Korozs & Denis Kuzelj at CACIB, Ukraine

24 - April - 2016

Cirneco & Italian sighthound judged by Andras Korozs & Denis Kuzelj at CACIB, Ukraine"From the Ship to the Ball"- it was like this for me. Just after I have left the ship I got happy SMS from Kiev from the first day of CACIB dog-show about our Italian sighthound girl and after a sleepless night in the airport in Venice I was already in the ring at "Ukraine-2016" dogshow - it was second day of double CACIB. I was showing our Cirneco del Etna dog - little star who had her last day at puppy class as since April 25 Siri had to enter Junior class. I'm thankful to Lyuba Syroshtan and Tanya Stanishcheva - our italian sighthound friends for all the help they did for me during that day. 48 hours without sleeping is something ...
As a result - italian greyhound Silvento Gaia finished her CH UA title while I was in Italy and was handled by her handler Sasha Ushakov and seems she won't be showed anymore as Gaia lost all her interest for the shows she had before and from other side cirneco Creta del Gelso Bianco finally entered junior class  and became Best Puppy for the last time. Welcome to the adult life, Siri 🙂
