Solino's On The Rocks Grand Prix Winner 2009

Finally we are home after a long and tiring trip to Dublin for the Eurodog Show. We were so looking forward to our first trip to Dublin...but things did not go smoothly from the start! Even tho we reserved our trip months in advance, we discovered that Rocky & Bill could not travel on the same flight with us, and they would have to wait all alone at the airport over night.
So they took a nice trip to Paris instead, where our friend Jacqui Williams picked them up and took them with her by car & boat to Dublin. They all arrived happy and healthy after their adventure.
We enjoyed Dublin and all the people were so nice and friendly. The sun was shining and we were able to do some sight seeing. Dublin is a lovely city. we were so excited when the day of the show arrived..............
But the Eurodog Show was a BIG disappointment.
The rings were dirty and very basic. No carpets - just a piece of rubber matting stuck with tape to the floor. The entry was so poor - only 26 Cresteds!! Just 2 females in Open & Champion Class. The overall quality was not high either.The only good thing was to see "Sun -Hees Special Edition" for real. A stunning girl what deserved the BOB & Junior BIS -3, perfect handled by Marika, huge congrats again.!! 

Where were the "local" breeders & exhibitors? I had been hoping to see some UK & Irish dogs. All in all the trip was a big disappointment, because of the show. To travel to Ireland is costly and very complicated for those of us with dogs................and I don't think I will bother again. ........... and it was the CHAMPIONSHIP of Europe after all......... ......... ......... .it was shameful !!

Your friend Magda

Dear Magda, huge hugs to all of you too,we hope to see you soon .

It is always hard letting a puppy go to his new home - but the older the puppy is, the deeper the bond with him, and so saying good-bye is twice as hard.

So I knew April 23rd 2009 was going to be a difficult day for me as it was the day Nickleback's flight was reserved to go to his new home in England. To send a dog to UK is not a simple process - the paperwork must be started at least 7 months before the day he can travel. Together with my vet, we prepared all the necessary vaccinations, blood tests, and other obligations required to enter UK.

After 7 long months the day arrived - and it was a historical occasion because Nickel was to be the FIRST animal to enter UK by plane from Berlin! I was sad as I drove to meet the man who always arranges any dog shipments for me. But all went to plan - as of course all the paperwork & his pet passport were in order, and after making duplicates of every test & paper, I said a tearful farewell to Nickel and headed home.

All I had to do now was await the news he was in the arms of his new owner! Around 4pm local time the shipper called me to tell me the good news that Nickel had arrived safely. I was delighted and headed out to the supermarket, very relieved.

Imagine my horror when about an hour later I returned home to find an urgent email from my friend Jacqui in France as well as lots of messages on my phone from the new owner & Jacqui to say that British Airways had LOST all Nickel's papers and he would either be sent back - or put into quarantine!!!!!!!!! I was hysterical with worry.

I needed to contact my vet to ask her for a written attestation that all the papers were in order BUT she was on holiday!! At last I managed to speak to her on the phone and she so kindly agreed to get a babysitter for her children and to go into her clinique. There she wrote - in English - a full attestation including all dates & details and she faxed it to UK. We thought all would be ok................and we waited.............and waited.....................and waited.

Eventually, unable to wait any longer, the new owner had to leave to go home, although she was heartbroken to leave Nickel. So she drove the 3 hours home from London absolutely exhausted & so worried about her dog.

20 minutes after arriving home she got a call from British Airways to say they had FOUND Nickel's papers on the FLIGHT DECK!!!!!!! They had been forgotten and gone to ITALY when the plane took off again - and then they had to wait for the plane to return to London to have the papers. Thank GOODNESS the plane was not headed to another country, or poor Nickel would still be in his crate waiting. Of course they were all in order and she could come to collect him. So she turned around and drove back to London to release poor Nickle from his prison. At long last after a nightmare journey, they arrived home at 5am this morning.

A happy ending - but now we await the apology from the airline, and the offer of compensation for all the time, extra travel, extra veterinary costs, and so much worry...................I wonder how long we will have to wait???? Watch this space!

A simple 1 hour direct flight ended up becoming the journey from HELL of 17 hours. There is NO EXCUSE for this, and I cannot find the words to say how I feel about British Airways.


After a long day  of worry and touch and go connections my
girl has arrived  safely& healthy her new mom.  We already missing "Summer" so much. We wish her & her new owner all the best for the future.


we had the first home run with the kids, more under puppies.

Solino's Show Team has a new look for 2009!  We thought it was about time we updated our home on the web, and so first we commissioned some wonderful artwork of the Solino's dogs from the celebrated Las Vegas artist Robin. We are thrilled with the    resulting paintings.Then we asked the great German webdesigner Marion to give our home an "extreme makeover" . She listened to our ideas, made some suggestions....and voilà ! We'Ve moved house!
We are absolutely delighted with our new, modern, Bright and Very tasteful home - and we hope you will love it too. Both Robin & Marion have been a real pleasure to work with, always open and attentive to our ideas, and kind and understanding when sometimes we asked for changes. We cannot thank them enough.
So we are thrilled and delighted to welcome you to our brand new home, and we hope you'll come back often.
