Norwegian Poodles Club Show in Bergen
March 25th 2007


Judge: Mr. Bruno Nodalli, Italy

It was a great pleasure and a honour for me to be invited to judge the prestigious poodle club show held in the end of March in the most beautiful and ancient city of Norway as it is Bergen. Of course I am very thankful to the Norwegian poodle club. I am breeding poodles with my wife Paola and my daughter Viviana from 1982 under the “Osmanthus” prefix breeding miniatures and toy poodles. Miniatures has always been our passion but than in 1991 the first toy came in our house requested by my daughter, so we started to show and breed very successfully also this variety. Osmanthus in known all over Europe, we attribute our success when breeding European lines with the Scandinavian lines. We have produced many World winner and European winners over the past years and pay tribute to our foundation stock for generations after generations of successful dogs. Breeding only one or 2 litters per year at Osmanthus we have 27 International champions, we have bred champions in the following countries: Italy, France, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Russia, Czech Republic, Polen, Belgium, Luxembourg, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Argentina, South America, Greece and Ukraine. Our world winners were in 1992 (junior) in Spain and 1993 in Buenos Aires Multi Ch.Osmanthus Aromatics Elixir Noir (mini), in Bern 1994 and in Brussels 1995 our Norwegian import Fidel Full Fart Mikke (dwarf), in Bern 1994 our toy Multi Ch.Superstar’s Black Kiss Me, in Vienna 1996 Multi Ch.Osmanthus Donna In Smoking (mini). Our European winners are: In Verona 1990 our foundation bitch and most winning mini of all time in Europe Multi Ch.Anita’s Bernita (mini), in 1996 In Luxembourg Fidel Full Fart Mikke, in 1998 in Genova our Multi Ch.Osmanthus Donna in Smoking, Osmanthus Jazz and Osmanthus Krazy Krizia as junior world winner, in 1999 in Tulln Osmanthus Kenzo, in 2000 in Polen Osmanthus La Perla, in 2002 in Paris Osmanthus Rose by Rose, in 2003 in Bratislava Osmanthus Sortilege as junior and in 2005 in Tulln Osmanthus Sortilege.

So this was just a story about us, talking about Bergen, I went up with my daughter on Friday evening and the day after we had a look at the wonderful city with a very nice guide sent by the poodle club. The next day was the show day, the place of the show was very nice, 67 poodles were entered, a record for this show, cause Bergen is not an easy place to reach, most of the poodle breeders lives in Oslo, so it takes about 7/8 hours to reach to show. I have than heard that many of the show people were coming there with the flight. The quality was excellent, and I was very surprised from the kindness of the show people (not very easy to find in most of the European shows). The committee of the poodle club was perfect and very very correct, just to say that I have seen the catalogue of the show in the hotel on Sunday evening when all was finish. You will think it is funny I said a thing like this, but you can’t imagine how happy I was, normally in Europe it is not so and the catalogue is on the judge’s table.

So starting from the standards, BOB went to the black male “Jawazza Hot Explosion” sired by Multi Ch.Jawazza High and Low ex Multi Ch.Jawazza Dream Catcher Of Apache. This male was in the typical modern Scandinavian trim, so with very short hair and the ears and tail. An excellent dog with a great head, masculine and with an excellent movement. Breeder of this wonderful male is Mrs Lillestrom Nillson from Sweden and owner is Mrs Vibeke from Norway. Best bitch and BOS was the junior black “Memories Always There” sired by N.Int.Ch. Catwalk Attitde ex N.Int.Ch. Memories Love Somebody”. This was really a wonderful bitch that I am sure will do a great show career, very elegant with a head and an expression to die for. She is bred and owned by Mr Kjelle Ole Sperrevik.

In miniatures the best bitch and BOB went to the beautiful black “Bazaar’s Frequent Flyer” a multiple champion sired by Multi Ch.Cachas Working Pal ex Multi Ch. Bazaar’s Watch Me Fly she is bred and owned by Mrs Anne Myhrbraaten. Unfortunately this bitch couldn’t stay for the BIS cause she had to run to the International show held on the same day to show the litter brother in the Best In Show competition that won the group the day before. In males the best one and BOS was “ Farday Arveydo” sired by Ch.De Pimlico Orlando ex Am Ch. Farday Quisilla, bred by Mr Victor Hansen and owned by Mrs Lilly Ronhovde. Best junior was a lovely black bitch “Voulez Vous Oui” sired by Ch.Kandy Boy Braunkonig ex Multi Ch.Voulez Vous Mumbo Jumbo. She is bred by Mrs Anita Byklum and owned by Mrs Byklum and Mrs Astrid Giercksky. This bitch of a great quality than went also second best bitch. I am sure that will do a very good show career later on.

In dwarves the BOB and best male went to the black “Kudos Trendsetter” a super mover inky black  sired by the Multi Ch.Kudos the Knockout ex Multi Ch.Kudos Sophisticated Lady, bred by Mr Mikael Nillson and owned by Mr Edgar Nielsen & Kent Are Olsen. Best bitch and BOS was the lovely brown “Fidel Pin Up” really a wonderful bitch with an extremely beautiful head and expression. She is sired by Eugenios Cool Dreams ex Multi Ch. Fidel Peek a Book. She is bred and owned by Mrs Eva Nygaard Sorensen. In toys best male and best of breed was the junior black  “Fidel Spitfire” sired by Multi Ch.Solnes I am Just A Dancer ex Multi Ch. Bobrow’s Let Your Spirit Fly. He is bred and owned by Mrs Eva Nygaard Sorensen. Best bitch and best of opposite was the junior black bitch “ Solnes Something Else” really a lovely one with a very nice movement. She is sired by the N.Int.Ch.Solnes Hard Act To Follow ex Solnes Turkish Delight. This little bitch is bred by Mrs Solveig Naess and owned by Mrs Kirsten Heien.

In the Best In Show competition the decision was not easy, the 3 dogs in the ring were of an excellent quality, very good rapresentative of our lovely breed. I placed as Best in Show the black toy “Fidel Spitfire” perfectly constructed, in excellent size, very good body, not easy to find a toy with so an excellent body. Reserve Best In Show was the black standard male “Jawazza Hot Explosion”, really a nice one in good size, excellent body, nice head and a very very good mover. He was really nice in his clip. Best in Show 3rd was the black dwarf “Kudos Trendsetter” also with a very nice head and a really great show dog with a lot of power covering the ground.

It was than some very nice special price one for the best head that went to the brown dwarf bitch “Fidel Pin Up” and one for the best movement that went to the black standard “Jawazza Hot Explosion”. Me together with my family have offered a special price in crystal for the Best In Show with a poodle head drawn with a special laser. The drawing of the head was done by Mrs Astrid Giercksky of the Topscore fame in 1995 when was in our house for a holiday.

In the Best In Show puppy competition the winners were the following:

Best In Show was the black miniature “ Marielle Milli Mare” sired by Kandy Boy Braunkonig ex Marielle Grand Riserva” bred and owned by Mrs Elisabeth Engemonen, Reserve Best In Show was the little white toy bitch “ Hvite Ballerina In Fashion” sired by Toy Fashion’s Fun Light ex Lizzy” bred and owned by Mrs Jorunn Ostensen & Annette Halvorsen. Best In Show 3rd was the black dwarf “ Bet-Ca’s I Mind My Own Business” sired by Its For a reason I ‘m ex N.Int.Ch. Elsto Scooty Agel bred and owned by Mrs Kari Madsen. Best In Show 4th was the black standard “ Molineux Ment to Be A King “sired by N.Int.Ch.Ankaru’s Ahrex Aramis ex Memories Angel Eyes.

Best veteran was a fantastic black standard bitch “ Memories One Step Closer” sired by the well know Multi Ch.Racketeer Exquisit sinner ex N.Int.Ch. Memories Fleur DeLis bred and owned by Mr Kjelle Ole Sperrevik. Never I have seen such a quality and great show presence in a dog of that age!!!
