I have received my first
poodle as a present from my pearents in the year 1967, but
officially it was owned by my father. It was white miniature
bitch Iliria z Portorose. My life has been put together with
poodles since that time. My father was very activ in „the
poodle life“ and I was always in the events with him. Our
Iliria was the first poodle from the czech breeding which got
the title International champion.
When I finished the
university in 1984 I had only one wish – to have a white
miniature bitch which is really, really only mine. And my
dream came true. It was the bitch Julischka vom Elfenberg –
born June 4th, 1984, imported from Germany. This bitch founded
the breeding in my kennel ARCANUS ILIRIA.
imported the black miniature bitch Anita´s Jennifer in the
year 1993 from Germany and the black miniature male Osmanthus
Jazz in the year 1997 from Italy. I had only two litters of
black miniature and now I am sure that my heart pulses for
white colour of miniatures although the breeding of white is
not simple. I am not a big breeder. 56 puppies have been born
in my kennel since the year 1988 – 46 white and 10 black.
We are only a small kennel, but not unsuccesful. We have breeded 3 black
(Ganymédes, Chiapas, Chloé) and 6 white (Cloelia, Favonius,
Ílós, Iulus, Iliria, Julischka) interchampions and
multichampions. Cloelia was Res.CACIB from the world dog show
in Valencia 1992. I have 2 black and 3 white males and 1 black
and 5 white bitches at home in this moment, 4 of them are
been president of the Czech club of poodlebreeders since the
year 1994 and judge specialist for poodles since the year
1985. I have judged the poodles in Slovak, Germany, Austria,
Hungary, Russia, Denmark, Belgium and of course in Czech.
what I prefer about poodles as judge? I prefer the poodles
with excellent body, good balance, nice expression and elegant
movement. I like poodles - aristocrats.
