Split part 2: Rico, New International Champion!

Not long ago I wrote a post about Rico, who is soon to be called a veteran. I have just received his latest photo and he looked as great as he did as a younger, fit, elegant, all well put together… However, we can say, a photo is just a photo, and we know the magic they can do. Well, only few days after I got that photo, I received some FANTASTIC and certainly unedited news. I didn’t know that his owner, Yvonne, had entered him to Split, and when I heard that he won Best of Breed on the 3rd and 4th nights of show (2nd night BOB was Diego who also won the group) I was all over the moon!!
But not only that, I have to say that Danish & Swedish Champion LET IT BE DE TRUFAS NEGRAS aka RICO is now INTERNATIONAL CHAMPION!! Such results for this, almost 9 years old dog, make me think about several things, and without going to be boring on personal reflections, one is to remind myself that is never too late to go on, or finish what we started. Second is to confirm that great things remain great all time. And, next, is that I still believe of the importance of the team work, trust and confidence. Rico, is, without doubts, a Great dog, but he wouldn’t be looking so amazing without the effort and care his owner puts in. So, THANK YOU, Yvonne, once again, for taking care of the boys the way you do.

When a Good Dog proves to be like Good Wine.

It is always said that good quality things last long, and some even get better with time, like good wine… I find it appropriated with good quality dogs too.

So, today, I am very happy to share this photos that I received few days ago. This is RICO, soon to be a ‘veteran’ (9 yrs old); he was born in October 2007.

Danish & Swedish Champion, Copenhagen Winner’12 – LET IT BE de Trufas Negras
Ricojuly

Rico, is not only a nice dog in the outside, he has also passed the Swedish mentality test including shooting.
He’s has also proved himself to be a superb stud dog in Sweden and, I am extremely pleased to see winners dogs today carrying Rico’s name in their pedigree. He is father of 7 Champions, and he also won together with his progeny several Best in Show and BIS placements along all these years!

I have too many favorite photos of this dog, so I won’t post them all now. I also have some great memories of seeing him winning when I had the luck to be in the ring side. He is absolutely amazing to look at, and of course I say this with breeders eyes, but a very lucky one who share this view with the judges too.

I selected few Rico’s  photos to show his growing evolution. To me, he always looked awesome, but increasingly awesome with the age… and my idea did’t change a bit almost 9 years later.

Rico is blessed with an amazing owner, and I’m very, very happy for that, even more than all his winnings and beauty altogether! Thank you so much Yvonne!!

Afonya, CAC winner at WDS’16

I know, you will tell me ‘If I go to a WDS I only will celebrate the World Winner title’… Well, that winning I had the pleasure to celebrate last year in Milano when Messi was BOS; and I know how hard it is to be those big rings running along with worldwide competition, and a lot of fierce eyes starring at you.

When a couple of months ago I’ve heard that Afonya was entreated at WDS in Moscow, I will admit it, I was terrified and had no that big hope. I personally have admired the high quality of Russian dogs for years, that much that I have owned two. I knew the quality of Afonya is Excellent, and he had done really well at shows in Israel, but I also know the competition in Russia is strong and with good quality. Then another thing ‘against’ him is that he has natural ears and tail! And, let’s face it, but the facts today are, that cropped/docked dogs still having more chances over naturals. And next thing is Afonya is still a young dog, he will be 2 years old on the 4th of July. Well, as you see, I tend to be more of a ‘pessimist’ or fact checker when it comes  to this things… Though my dogs have proved many, many times doing well at shows I was still a bit frightened. Even when there is the fact behind my breeding program proving successful over the years, having produced dogs that became Champions in over 20 countries in 4 continents, I still evaluate things and believe there’s always some things to do better. But this time it was just the overwhelming thought about showing in Russia, Afonya is the first dog of my breeding to be showing in Russia, so I didn’t know how it was like.

This show was big and the judge seemed to be not giving away prices; out of 54 male entries  ONLY 24 were qualified as Excellent (less than the half of the entries!)! And there was Afonya, awarded EXCELLENT,  winning his class, and receiving a CAC, and going further on in the competition to the CACIB; having that privilege is already big. He didn’t make it, he was placed 3rd, right after the CACIB and Res.CACIB winner, both Russian (cropped/docked) males, which I congratulate, I’m sure they are great dogs. Unfortunately I was not there to see, and support Afonya’s owner who traveled from Israel believing in Afonya, and I must say, BRAVO, and thank you! You believed in me once and decided to bring a dog all the way from Argentina to Israel, with the pain of bureaucracy all that involved, and now you believed in him to take him to Moscow and for me we stand high, Thank you Stanislava for showing our boy, JrCH, Grand Champion of Israel AN AFFAIR IN BUENOS AIRES DE TRUFAS NEGRAS.

I’m looking forward to see you both next year in a new edition of WDS.
