I got my first dog for my 12 years birthday, in 1961. A silver coloured toy poodle bitch with excellent pedigree.
My second dog was a Saluki dog, born in 1971.
I bred my first Saluki litter in 1977.
My first Sheltie was born in 1995. I bred my first Sheltie litter in 1999.
Since 2002 I am a FCI International Show Judge and have judged my breeds in various countries. Since 2009 I'm Group judge for all breeds in FCI group 10 and I also judge breeds in FCI groups 1, 5 and 9.
