Sunday, June 6th 2009


Judging the Poodle Club of Canada National Specialty 2009 I felt indescribable sensations. A real nature scene passed in front of my eyes for all the four hours of judging. My heartily congratulations to the numerous breeders, owners, handlers, to the president David Pateman and to all the Poodle Club Of Canada. I was honored to be the first Italian and one of the few Europeans to be invited to judge the biggest yearly event in the country. Thanks so much to all!!!!

The Champion “Tango The Kind and I” (Isis Renassaince Headline News ex Signet High Society) owned by Mrs. Sue Donald and bred by Mrs. Lisa Goodwin has dominated over all competitors being my Best In Show. After the show his breeder told me that this spectacular dog is a Multiple Best In Show winner in the country and took also the award of merit at Westminster 2009. He is leading for the Top poodle all sizes in Canada together with an Avatar bitch bred by the talented Anders Rosell and Stephen Wheeler and owned by Linda Campbell.

“Solomon” is a stunning black standard of 4 years old. Perfect in the general proportions and with excellent musculature. A male of super high quality for the breed expression in all his details. His elegance in the movement, ring presence and distinction made a perfect picture with his handler Crystal Murray that took my eyes and heart giving an incredible emotion. Surely the success will be the present and future of this wonderful dog!!

The Best of Opposite was the black CH ”Bellefleet Sanvar Got To Dance” (Apiele Bronzini ex Sanvar Bellefleet Dixie Chick) and excellent bitch with good movement very feminine with dark eyes and good chin.

 “Dawin Dance a Tyme To Rosebar” (Bar None Dawin Carte Blanche ex Dawin Dance The Night Away) was my Best of Winners and Best Puppy in breed, a black standard still very young (12 months) but already very well built, of excellent proportion and very elegant in the movement.

A wonderful stunning white male CH "Ormar Allure No Regrets”  (Litillan’s Book’em Daniel ex Stargazer La Femme Allure) got the honor title of Award of Merit. Great ring presence and spectacular movement made clear his champion quality. He has an impressive masculine expression and a great coat quality for texture and coat.

Best brood bitch was the black CH "Sanvar Bellefleet Dixie Chick” (CH Sanvar’s Rocky Mountain High ex CH Sanvar’s Major High). Best stud dog was “Apiele Bronzini” (Apeile OffshoreCapability ex Valtec Lady Godiva Celest.

Very interesting the miniatures, overall with a very good quality, good bodies, short back and most of all with good movements. Exquisite well cheselled head of “Palman Nautilus” a silver male that was Winners dog, so difficult to find such a quality in a silver. In bitches Winners bitch and Best of Winners was the black “Lilu Lukimo Uzgaida Listed” (Warming Black Balzac ex Cinta DivLikimo Uzgaida)  and Best of Breed was the US bred CH ”Dassin Giselle” (Dassin Reignon Di Caprio ex Dassin Reignon Madas) a black bitch with an intense eye expression, with excellent body proportions and muscles for a mini. Excellent coat quality and superb presented by her handler Mrs. Kim Wendling. “Giselle” was so proud moving in the ring with an excellent speed and head carriage.

Best of opposite and Best Canadian Bred in Breed was conquered with his full elegance and strong temperament by the black male CH “Bellefleet Dynamic Force” (Warming Brown Surprise ex Sanvar Bellefleet Delta Force) . A real stunning male. My Award of Merit in minis went to the black bitch CH “Lyn-Del Aberwin Enchanted Ceilidh” (Cabryn Lord of Illusion ex Ravendune Lyn-Del Riverdance) with her incredible back drive movement full of distinction. Best puppy was the black bitch “Thalpet Black Jade of Tameral” (Warming Brown Surprise ex Kasalland Blackopal of Tameral) a great bitch with a brilliant future, a super mover with a great constuction and a very beautiful head and expression.

Very very interesting the toy size, all were very harmonious in the size, here they don’t have to be over 10 inches and heads, bodies and movements were perfectly tuned…congratulations!!!

The bitch “Let´s Go Crazy Paisley” (Samkel’s Amorita’s Ricco ex Ynot I must be Crazy At Pioneer) was Reserve Winners Bitch and Best Bred by Exhibitor in Breed. A bitch of good quality that was perfectly handled and groomed by her owner even if she was not a professional handler. Winners toy bitch was “Pomroth What Not To Wear” (Pomroth Atta Boy Andy ex Elk Creek Keweton Spirit) it was wonderful to see her moving, so elegant with great dark eyes, excellent head and neck and very well angulated. Best of Opposite was the male CH “Jobren Mahogany Foxtrot” (Charades Cairo at Jobren ex Draco Jobren Chestnut Vixen) a very compact male with good shoulder, neck, feet  and great drive in the back movement.

Best puppy in breed, Best Canadian bred, Best of Breed and RESERVE BEST IN SHOW  was CH “Pomroth Sweet Mesquite” (Pomroth Java Isle ex Charades Ashanti). She is an extraordinary brown bitch of 13 months old. A beautiful head well chiseled proportioned to the body, excellent neck, shoulder, good hindquarters with excellent muscles. The great quality was her eye color, dark brown…a rarity!!!

At the end of my article I would like to share with you my happiness and satisfaction breeding this wonderful breed since around 30 years with my family, and having the opportunity to evaluate and touch the great work done by Europeans, Scandinavian and North American breeders.

Having the opportunity to admire and award the breeder’s hard work is the great confirmation that the Poodle is one of the most loved and best bred breeds in the world!!

A great thanks to all!!
