Latest news from Australia, the little guy Mohawk “Brandenburg” a stunning son out of Ch.Solino's” Jackpot Contender” is doing great there, we are over the moon with Vicki J.
HUGE congrats on Mohawk Brandenburg taking out his 3rd in a row BABY IN Group and BABY PUPPY IN SHOW.



After a long long drive of 750km we finally arrived in the beautiful city of Amsterdam. We were staying with our dear friends Trude & Coby in their lovely home, and honestly it was just like being in a 6 Star Hotel in Dubai! They treated us like royalty - we had a superb dinner! Many many thanks to them both for their wonderful welcome;-)
Last year at this same show "Amsterdam Winners" I spotted a group of super puppies all bred by Mignon and I immediately told her that one in particular, a Puff boy, stood out for me and that she should keep him. Well this year I saw that she had taken my advice - and I paid for it, as this stunning boy "Punch" won the Junior Winner title, the Winners title, and also BOB!!!! If Mignon HAD NOT taken my advice my Bill would have won the Junior title and Rocky the Winners title!
But I was so happy for Mignon as Punch really is a gorgeous boy.

It was a pleasure to show the boys to judge Mr.Dhr.J.G.A Boelaars - a big thank you for the great reports he wrote for me in English.

Rocky... Eyecatching, beautiful, super smooth skin, wonderful head,….wonderful body front and rear…,super sound on the move
Bill… Very attractive young male, wonderful head & expression, balanced front & rear……

Another pleasure for me was to see such a pretty Rocky daughter “Granduca Nerone Pazzda” in the Junior Class. She won the Junior Winner title and then went on to win the Winners title - this is a girl to watch in the future!
On Sunday, before we headed home, we took our show team out for an exhilirating walk on the sand dunes. The kids had a great time and Hermann & Paparazzi Trude got some great shots of them.

Solino‘s Letterman did it again , Spire Toy Dog show BOB and BIS


The week past Jitka, Magda, Veronica and Franta came for a visit. It is so nice to have friends come for a visit. Magda was so kind and showed me Solino's Member of Mohawk. “Smarty” as he is known has grown up to be an absolutely beautiful little boy. “Smarty” reminds me of his home and of his two and four legged moms. On Saturday Magda showed “Smarty” to the club winner show in Prague. “Smarty” went on to take Exc.1 CAC Junior ( out of a class of 12! ) won the Club Junior Winner title then again he went on to win third place in BIS Junior!!!!! A big Thank You to Judge Hans v.d. Berg of Holland for this great honor.

Jitka picked up her knew family member Solino's On The Rocks ”Tyrone”. I know that Jitka takes exceptional care of all her kids and Tyrone will be no exception.
I received the following e-mail today,

Finally Nash is home! The trip was wonderful and he traveled in the cabin of Mr. XXXX.
Once the plane was landed the TAM staff took him in the plane and went directly to the agricultural department and 10 minutes later he was in my arms.
THANK YOU AGAIN, HE IS WONDERFUL!!!! I LOVED him and I am VERY happy with him and proud to have a Solino's Crested here, specially for being a Rocky son. I will take some pictures and send it to you soon.

Instead of spending our free time at boring dog shows we and the dogs had much more fun at obedience and agility. It is amazing to recognize their natural talent. Rocky and Gucci are real proofs. Some more pictures will come in the gallery in the next time.

Kindest regards and Hugs

From Label and Henrik

In exactly three weeks both boys have to leave us, it will be hard to let them go

Iris he is beautiful, I would think twice before let him go. But still you have the father and he is just a like a crown jewel, a TOP stud - a TOP producer, that leaves his mark in each every pup he sires, and they are so easy to recognize. That is a quality hard to find. And after all what all wish for our breeding.

The „ High Five „ are born at Solino's, mother and five kids very fat and healthy are doing fine, the birth weight was between 5,9 oz and 7,3 oz. The litter is out of Darling and Rocky. Pictures coming soon.

I'm not sure which of these BEAUTIES looks better.

Concerning the pictures we received the following comment about:
Pretty dog, and the shot with the owner looks like a professional modeling shot.
Perhaps we need a new cable TV show "America's next top dog and human modeling team." Crested people and dogs would surely win...

Today it was the first time in this year for Rocky back in the ring. To fulfil the rules for the VDH Championtitle and for the German Championtitle we need 5 awards and between the first and the last award we have a waiting time of 366 days.
Needless to say Rocky needs only 5 shows to get all awards, he got the first end of March last year and today was the first possibility .......YEAH and he did it. He is really a GREAT Contender, thank you so much Bill & Amy Thompson , for a dream come true.

Speedy did it again, Best Pup of breed, perfectly showed by Geneva, what a great team. Truly "Golden Girls" huge Congrats to all involved:-)

After a 4 months break we started showing some of our kids again. Joya and Trinity did great today and both won their class but our youngster Kimiko, who had his showdebut today, ended up being BOB at the young age of ten months!

Past weekend some of the Solino's pups did very well on shows.
On the Int.dogshow in Leiden (Nl) "Solino's Little Mister N° One" at his very first dog show ended up Best Pup of breed. A "Big N° One"... :-) Judge was Mr. Nethercott (UK). Big congrats to Vivien, she owns and loves this boy.-) Jackpot in Australia got the next CC & ru BOB and Solino's Jacqui O. won second best female in Norway. Label had her showdebut as well in Denmark and became Best Puppy AND BISpup 3, Hendrik did a great job! Kenzo got the second place in the Juniorclass, great handling by Klaus.
Earlier Solino's Long Daz Into Night aka Speedy had her first show in Leiden (Nl) where she as well became Best Pup of breed.

Just think of the possibilities if reputable, ethical breeders work hand in hand, the results can be almost too good to be true!

We had a most marvelous time in New York City but with all the talk of Westminster and seeing so many dogs I forgot to mention our most special "Hurricane".
When my Rocky was just a little puppy I chose him at five weeks old, and so I have chosen another little boy to come and be part of our family. We are very thankful to Bill and Amy for their care, concern and honesty. It is so nice to work with breeders with ethics that then become your friend.

We hope to make our new little family member just as famous as Rocky for Rocky is known world wide. But more than that, Rocky has taken my heart and I am sure that this new little guy will do the same...steal our hearts.

"Canberra royal show"
Royal shows are the most important all breeds shows there!
Judge: Mr J. Reynolds from Canada
Jackpot won RU BOB , WOOHHOO his grandfather Tyson won BOB
Big congrats to Vicki

We had a great time again in N.Y.C., we met some friends and we had some interesting talks...
BTW I want to say thank you to all for the warm welcome, all the information we got we appreciate it.

After the great start of Solino's Jackpot, aka Jack, living in Australia with my friend Vicki, I received the following e-mail from South Africa and want to share, sometimes it seems the world is very small.

I am so excited to tell you. I was at the show yesterday and was chatting to a friend and very high profile judge here, who has just returned from judging in Australia. She mentioned that her CC dog was the most magnificent Crested. I said it must be a dog my friend Iris bred " Jack " and yes it was. How wonderful !! Huge Congrats !! I just knew it was him :-))

I had the picture of Blondi with me, and showed her, she thought she was magnificent too!
Goose flesh stuff :-))))

Jackpot did it again! Two shows this weekend and he got the CC's and is now 1/2 way to his aust title!
The same weekend his littermate Solino's Jezebelle won BOB in France on the Int. Show, beating the open and champion class!

Rocky's father Tyson (Am/ Can / Aust Ch Crestars Legendary Bruizer) won the title of the year in Australia, huge congrats to his breeder Martine and his owner Vicki.

At his 1st show, since arriving in Australia, at the 3 day circuit in Victoria Jack takes BOB in good company. We only entered him the one day as the heat has been so dreadful, he was happy as LarryJumped all over everyone.
A big thanks to Iris and Herman for letting Jack come to sunny Australia.
Judge was from Sweden , Mr Adheimer

Last weekend Mikimo got BOB got a CAC, the judge was Paula Heikkinen-Lehkonen. We are so proud of this little showboy. Hege told me he sure is a dream, both to show and to live with him.
Thank you Hege, we are sure he got the best home :-))
