From when I was born, I have always loved all the animals and
specially all the dogs.
I remember that from child I had a poodle, but when It died my
mother does not have intentional to replace it with another. I have suffered so much.
Then I did not imagine certainly that the dogs would have had an
important role in my life.
Fortunately in 1982 I know my actual husband
that, known of my desire to possess a dog newly, in 1986 Christmas he carried me
in a dog shop in Turin and he asked me to choose one puppy. My joy and my
surprise were so unexpected that I did not succeed to choose a dog. Finally in a
small cage I saw a puppy that, looking me with his great eyes, it seemed to tell
me "take me and hands me to your house."
It was a love to lacking sight! The puppy was a
Breed that I did not know and I did not even know about his existence. Dog name
YANK , later.

Here! It was from this moment that begins my history with
this very beautiful and ancient breed.
Yank has also been the craftsman of my
wedding with Agostino. Thanks!
But my passion for the breeding and above all for the dogs
shows will be born many years later.
In fact, after that

years only, 4 years before buying an other are passed to others shih-tzu. This
happened for my
husband job's that was subject to continuous transfers, but specially for the
birth of my

we must arrive to 1993, but also this dog
died after 4 years. Its death has been terrible!!!!!. It has been invested from a
car under my eyes and those of my Fabrizio
But such misfortune has perhaps
not come not at all!!!!!.
In fact, in order to quickly eliminate the trauma
from me and my
son for the terrible aim of
the doctor has advised my husband to replace him with another immediately.
It is to this point that we know
Mr. Mercatelli of
Campomorone (Genoa - Italy).
Very lucky meeting!!!!
He was the President of the
Section 3 of the Italian
Club Cani Compagnia,
section that is taken care about Tibetan Dogs
and therefore of the Shih-tzu.
Lucky also the period since he had as soon as had
a shih-tzu's litter. A Sunday we go to find him and we choose our puppy that it will

A beautiful gift that I will
Ken had arrived!!
it also begins
my history in
the dogs shows.
In fact, in September 1998, during a local show, Mr. Mercatelli's
Mrs. Orietta Pini,
Ken was becoming a beautiful dog she invited me to participate
in the show. It won its class. It was so that I discovered the world of the dog
I begin to inquiry itself , I read books, I ask suggestions and I
try to learn to grooming the shih-tzu.
Very useful have been the suggestions of a lot of people
between which I can not remember and not to thank, besides the
Renato in Asti,
the Villa's consorts
of Saronno and above all
keeps to win and becomes
Young Promised ENCI.
It also begin to be born a true friendship with the
that will be consolidated more always in the years and I hope can last all the
In the 2000 year
Mercatelli makes me to name secretary of the
Sez. 3 of the
Club Cani Compagnia,
role that, after a pause of three year , I covered newly from 2005 to 2007,
united to Adviser role.
Meantime I continue the experience in the dog
in open class, continues to give me enormous satisfactions obtaining different
winning the B.I.S.
in a local show.
At this point,
like happening to many people, I wish to
have also a female and in 2002 year I always buy her from the same
ALLEVAMENTO DELLE FIABE.
Her pedigree name is
"SOLO PER I
For Your Eyes only)
that it will become also the
name of my amatorial Kennel breeder and my web site logo's.
After having obtained the title of "Young
Promised ENCI" in
only 6 international competitions, "Only"
- so I familiarly call the female - won numerous
BOB and a
BOG. Unfortunately a
new transfer for job in the South of Italy will influence its hair and she won't
succeed in ending the Italian Championship missing only the two speciality.
But it is thanks also to this transfer that I know
Mrs. Rossana Corsini
and her companion
of the Corsini
, one of the most famous in Italy and to the foreign countries.
Thanks to their suggestions,too, and above all to the Pasquale teachings
complete always more my experience both as handler that as breeder. A great friendship
is born some also that I hope can last all the life.
Thanks Rossana, thanks
At this point and seen the experience by now acquired in
the shows as handler
entrusts me the
Great female that in a few months it allows me, as handler, to win my first Italian
Championship of beauty.
Meantime, and in attended that
GILDA can give me a
allow me to take from their Corsini Kennel House a new female:
di Casa Corsini
Thanks to this female my affirmation in the world of the
dog shows will be definitive.

possible to win in Italy and in some countries:
3° to the European Championship of Bratislava

Social Champion C.C.C. 2004

daughter finally arrives:

In a few time, between 2005 and 2006, also
all wich was
possible to win:

But it is with
that I will obtain the greatest satisfaction that every breeder
and handler would
like to have:

Title of European Champion and the
BIS Young Females in
in 2006 the open female class with
