We are proud to advise that our Multi Grand Champion, Multi Champion CELLO Nova Espera Sibiliani officialy gained the title of Champion International d'Exposition - FCI International Show Champion.

To earn this title the dog needs to have obtained in 3 different countries under 3 different judges 4 x CACIBs. Our Cello obtained these across 10 countries under 22 judges ... 23 x CACIBs....!
Also the dog must have passed a hutning test on live and natural game where the CACT (Certificate d'Aptitude au Championat National) is competed for. This condition was also fullfilled by Cello.

Our modest and cheerful Cello is not aware that she is a very historic dog! She is the first Porcelaine Hound in our Sibiliani Kennel. She is the first ever Porcelaine registered in the Irish Kennel Club.  She is the first Porcelaine in the history of the Irish Kennel Club to gain the title of the Irish Champion and also the first to gain the title of the Annual Champion (2018) in the IKC. She was the Dam of the very first litter of Porcelaines born in the Sibiliani Kennel as well as the very first one registered in the Irish Kennel Club. Now also - the first Porcelaine International Show Champion too! Bravo Cello! You made us so very proud.

On this occasion it is worth mentioning that Cello was shown in 12 countries between 30th June 2018 and 7th July 2019. As a result she obtained titles:


Romanian Grand Champion
Grand Champion of Montenegro
Grand Champion of Serbia


Bosnia i Hercegovina Champion
Dutch Champion
Federation of Bosnia i Hercegovina Champion
Irish Champion
Champion of Luxembourg
Champion of Montenegro
Polish Champion
Romanian Champion
Champion of Serbia

IKC Annual Champion 2018
Benelux Winner 2019
Grand Prix Slovakia Winner 2019
Mediterranean Champion
Balkan Champion
Adriatic Champion
Yugoslavia Champion

CACT - Working Certificate

In total, Cello was nominated with Best of Breed title 34 times! She also gained titles of Best of Opposite Sex, Best Bitch ...and many many more.
We are sure that she doesn't need to prove anything else and now - can happily enjoy the meadows and woods of Surrey with our pack of 5 Porcelaines and our honorouble Porcelaine - a 13 year old Bavarian Mountain Hound - Leeloo Sibiliani.
The full list of Cello's achievements can be seen here:


All her achievements were built thanks to the fantastic cooperation of many wonderful people - handlers, couriers delivering her on time during her trips across Europe, Warlingham Club where Cello made her first show steps, Clever Paws where she also attended to get used to her show career... Massive thanks everybody! This is our common success. 

A big thank you to all our dear firends and those who supported us along the way!

Cello was handeled by: Kinga Iwaniuk (PL, ROM, BiH),  David Gibson (IRL) and Edwin Lenaerts (PL, NL, GER, LUX, ME, SK, SRB).
