It all started with the arrival of my first Old English Sheepdog “with pedigree” in 1985, and I became infected with the “dog virus”.
I have bred 5 litters under the prefix “Pebbles Twinkling Star”, showed a lot, had a lot of problems with health in the dogs and bred my last litter April 18th, 1999. From this litter I have enjoyed the company of "Pebbles Twinkling Star Chanel 5" until July 22nd, 2011. She was a naughty but lovely bitch.
When I was 12 years old we have had a black Standard Poodle.
In February 1999 I have passed my first judging exam, Tibetan Terriers, and quit showing and breeding Old English Sheepdogs.
In 2008 I became Group judge of FCI Group 9 and beside the Old English Sheepdog I also judge all the British, French and Belgian Sheepdogs in FCI Group 1, Affenpinscher, German Pinscher, Schnauzers and Tibetan Mastiff in FCI Group 2, Yorkshire Terrier in FCI Group 3, Basenji in FCI Group 5 and still busy with exams in Group 1 and 2. It was very special to judge 3 times in Russia one was the Old English Sheepdog Specialty Show in Moscow, and judging Group 9 in the main ring in a few countries abroad. But the real “Highlight” was judging at Windsor in the UK and giving CC’s to the Tibetan Terriers!
I have been judging in the following foreign countries: Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Northern Ireland, Norway, Russia, Slovenia, Sweden, and in the United Kingdom.
