Miela competed at the Raduno in Castrocaro Terme Italy on April 2, 2011 under the famous Italian judge Maria Grazie Poli and received second in her Ch. Brown Roan Bitch Class. 

The Italians give a "grading" to all entries. The highest achievable grade is Eccelente - (Insufficient, Sufficient, Good, Very Good then Excellent...)  Miela received Eccelente in Italy.  We are thrilled, and of course we think she deserved it!  I feel very lucky to have such a high quality girl in the United States.

Group 2 under Mrs. Cindy Vogels at the Seattle Kennel Club - March 2011

August 28, 2010. This is CH. Italix Milena Olivia.  She just completed her Ch. title today at age 12 months - just a few days after her first birthday.  Today Miela went BOB over several top quality specials in Redmond WA at the Sammamish Kennel Club.  This gave her another 5 pt major and she is finished. 

Thank you so much Stacy Duncan for your expertise in handling her. 

Thank you Carolyn Fry ( her co-owner) for selecting her and for helping to get her to the US and especially thank you to her breeder, Kay Holden in the UK (Italix), who seems to continue to breed some of the finest Spinoni in the world.  Thank you Kay. 

.........and.......thank you Karen Hanka!

Italix Milena Olivia
(Ludstar Callisto in Italix Imp It x Italix Libera Maria) is a beautiful brown-roan female, with a typical square, well-boned outline, a close-fitting wirey coat and a head that has it all - expressive, round eyes, head planes that diverge, a refined, roof-shaped skull, with prominent occiput and lovely, draping low-set ears. 

Miela is also very birdy!  She has a very strong hunting instinct and desire - we look forward to training and hunting with her in the future. She is a fun, happy and very affectionate young dog who is a true pleasure to live with.

Both her sire and dam are certificated CA Clear and have KC/BVA scores well below the breed average. 

arrived in April 2010, aged just seven months and is making her presence felt in the showring, ably handled by Stacy Duncan.  She already has both a 3-pt and 5-pt Major 'under her belt' with just handful of appearances.

Miela's dam is a sister to the Top Spinone in the US 2009 and Best In Show (ISCGB Club) 2008 UK and American Champion Italix Massimiliano JW - see more details on our News Page.
