I looked again in the pedigree  of my bitch Amber and there is written Millcroft Sowerhill Matchico. I think that was made a mistake  when our serbian KC make transcript of Chico's pedigree. Many years he was the best dog in our country. In 1995 he already been of possesion of 32 CAC, 8 CACIB and 28 BOB. My Amber was his best daughter with 22 CAC, 6 CACIB and 10 BOB. Chico was a wonderful dog, my favorite type with excellent character. When he was about 8 years old, Nenad Davidovic gave him to his friend Vladimir Ramljak. I'm not sure, but I think that he past away in 2003 or 2004. In 1995 I even saved  Chico's life  but about that some other time.

I heard about  your kennel from Nenad  in 1991 and I like your dogs very much and I have many pictures of them. I presume that you read about me on my profile. Now I have a new dog Bono and trying to find a new bitch to start again with my small kennel.

Sorry for my bad english, I hope that we stay in touch.

Best wishes from kennel Loksley!

I spent some time to find old photos and scan them. Later I  will put all in my photo album. About Chico: As I said earlier, he was a really great dog. I know that he had about 30 litters in Serbia. Problem was in that fact that the bitches  were class or two bellow his quality, but even  then he gave a good puppies,especially males.They all had a good heads and strong bodies. Sorry, but I have only photos  of my bitch and her brother Ari from the same litter.  I think that their's mother was probably the best bitch in our country at that time but she had only one litter and my bitch was the first pick puppy.

In  year when Chico came to Serbia there was few good dogs but most of dogs on shows were hunting type ( smaller dogs with lighter head, like my first irish Amos ). There was only a few reputable breeders like kennels Red Wonder, Red Irish Dream... And now, situation is very similar. There are few of us who try to do something more but is very hard to buy a good puppies from outside Serbia. Most of good dogs came from Hungary and very few from England ( like Satlas Medoc in the kennel Red Irish Dream of my friend Nenad Mocorka ). But, no one import a bitch in last six years and now all good dogs  are closely related . Problem is  also in that fact that we must sell whole litter for the price of one good puppy from England. Also, irish is no so popular in Serbia and is common that in one show we have only 3 to 6 entries in all classes. Is little bit better in CACIB shows but in last 10 years no more then 10 entries.

As I can see, there are very much excellent stud dogs across a Europe, but for me is very hard to find a bitch I like in type, of which I wished to have a female puppy. The ones I like are out of my reach in this moment.

I hope that I will start with showing my new dog this summer after seven years out of ring.

Sorry for the long letter, don't want to be boring.

Best regards,

Hi June,
