2020 was a very strange year all over the world - it was different for us too in almost every aspect of our lives and looking back we must say that we are grateful for where we are today.
Most of all we would like to thank all our wonderful friends all over the world for their friendship, help, support, sharing with us their knowledge and simply - though not so obvious - that they are always with us. We are here for you every day.
Whilst not being able to show our dogs as often as in previous years, we still managed to visit a few countries and gain a few new titles.
In 2020 our sweet Cello received the FCI title of Champion International d'Exposition (C. I. E.). Bravo Cello!
A very handsome male - Baldoni Lupo - joined our kennel and at once started a great show career. We will be always very grateful to Luca & Sabrina from Baldoni Kennel for their trust and for giving us the opportunity to share our lives with this amazing dog. He is not only a great specimen of the breed but also an incredibly intelligent dog with a fantastic character. We cannot wait for his show career to blossom as soon as we have the opportunity once the shows can start again.
So far, Lupo has become a Grand Champion & Champion of Montenegro and Bulgaria; he also gained the title of Champion of Lithuania, Balkan Champion, started Polish Championship and C.I. E., which we hope he will be able to finish in 2021. Lupo previously sired a litter of our puppies in 2019 from which we kept our cute Mira.
Deifnitely, 2020 belongs to our lovely Nola, who became a first time mother of five beautiful, healthy and very lively puppies - Ravel, Rachmaninoff, Radetzky, Reyna & Rhapsody. The litter was sired by a great Baldoni Fonzi.
This litter was born in difficult times for the world, in a cooperation with our friendly kennel Onychinus - Kinga, Agnieszka & family - thank you so much for your help and fantastic work. Big thanks also to Luca & Sabrina without whom bringing these puppies into the world would not have been possible.
At the moment, the puppies are leaving to start their lives with their owners around the world. Also - as we already announced in December 2020 - one of the females from Nola & Fonzi's litter - Rhapsody - is a new addition to our Sibiliani Kennel. We are looking forward to seeing her and her siblings' development as they all are the very promising puppies.
Worth mentioning are also Nola's new titles - Grand Champion & Champion of Montenegro, Polish Championship and her gaining her Working Certificate (CACT). In 2020 Nola met all the necesary conditions to be awarded with the FCI Champion International d'Exposition title (C.E.I.) - subject to confirmation.
In numbers Sibiliani Kennel finished 2020 with:
- Two more Porcelaine Hounds
- One more litter of five puppies living on two continents
- Four more Championships
- Three more Grand Championhips
- One more CACT
- Two C.I.E. (one is a subject to confirmation)
- 10 x CACIB
- 13 x CAC
- 9 x BOB
- 3 x BOS
& plenty of hope for 2021.
Thank you all very much for being with us in 2020. Have a Healthy & Prosperous New Year in 2021!
