Crufts, Birmingham, GB on March 8th 2018

Thursday 8th March was the Bergamascos day at Crufts and we are delighted to report some very good results.  Our dogs compete in the Any Variety Imported Register (Pastoral) classes, which as well as the Bergamasco, included Pumis, Picardy Sheepdogs and Hungarian Kuvasz. The Judge was Mr T Jakkel of Hungary.

Three Bergamascos had qualified to enter Crufts - these were Dolce AV Villrosebakken of Chique, owned by Dancing Trees;  Fato (known as Alfie) owned by Paul and Jo Sandford and Alp Angels Bella Fiore Dell Albera of Bellezzalana owned by Steve and Janie Poole.

Results:-

Dolce: 3rd in Good Citizen Dog, 

Fiore:   2nd in Post Graduate Bitch,   2nd in Open Bitch.

A great day and as well as doing so well in the Ring, the dogs attracted a lot of interest from the hundreds of visitors attending Crufts.

Big congrats to everyone for the great results!!

Congrats to a new litter at Bellezzalana Kennel in UK

The U.K. are delighted to report that in the early hours of 23rd December, Janie and Steve Poole's Fiore whelped 6 healthy pups. Sired by Enzo the litter comprises 4 Females (3 merle, 1 black) and 2 males (1 merle, 1 black) and all are thriving and feeding well. Fiore is an excellent, natural mum and has settled into the current daily routine of feeding, playing, cleaning and sleeping whilst her fur babies have opened their eyes and are learning about the big world they have come into.  Fiore is extremely proud of her pups and even before they were born, she would roll over onto her back to show you the 'babies in her tummy'. 

This is a long-planned for litter between 3 year old Fiore (Alp Angels Bella Fiore Dell Albera of Bellezzalana) , who was bred by and imported into the UK from Jeanine Dell Orfano and 5 year old Enzo (Calshair Rannock) who was bred by Chris and Alasdair Walker and who is owned by their son Rikki Stout and his partner Kylie Paynter.

A tribute to Ria dell'Albera

A legendary Bergamasco has left us. Ria was from Maria Andreolis very last litter. Hans and Anita Lindquist, Tempeluddens Kennel, lucky to live with this wonderful bitch for more than 14 years. She has never been ill and has given birth to three huge litters of 10, 13 and 15 puppies, spread all over the world. She has a lot of grandchildren and greatgrandchildren who can continue to make other Bergamasco owners happy. Ria, you will always be in our hearts.  Your personality and temperament lives on in a lot of offsprings. Thank you so so much for everything, what you have done in your life. RIP Ria

Her titles: C. I.B, Nord Champion, Sweden Winner 2011, Nord Winner 2011, Veteran World Dog Winner 2012.
