Once upon of time ........

That's the way all fairy-tales begins, but this is not a fairy-tale, this is real.......
My life with dogs started out with a black miniature schnauzer-lady, it was a coincidence that she was a miniature schnauzer - but - what a lucky coincidence.

"Kia", whom I can thank for so many things, turned out to be an old lady.
She came into my life in 1989, and drew my attention to this breed. She possessed an ardent temper and was VERY intelligent.
Unfortunately she was not suitable for shows, as she was the "old model".
Instead she was a perfect obedience and agility dog. Three times she qualified for the annual Danish Agility Championship. She loved to hunt cats and mice. She was for sure a real Miniature Schnauzer.
"Kia" passed the Rainbow Bridge at the age of 14.

In the meantime I had laid my eyes on the black/silver Miniature Schnauzers. I HAD to own such a dog. A lovely Italian import had just arrived in Denmark, Scedir Lucille-Na, and I ordered a puppy bitch after her. That was the beginning of my breeding programme.

Stena Stamm's Lotus Luchiki

I got a wonderful puppy bitch called "Stena Stamm's Lotus Luchiki".
She did really wonderful things in the show-ring and won the following titles: BEJSG94, DKCH, KLBCH, KBSG, INTCH, and became the Golden Dog 1994.
"Chiki" and I spent very many wonderful moments together. Her size was 32 cm.
For many years "Chiki" lived together with some friends on the island of Als. She loved to be a single-dog. I have kept a nice puppy after her, a lovely male dog, Nero Argento's Alfa Romeo.
"Chiki" passed the Rainbow Bridge in 2004 at the age of 12.

Nero Argento's Alfa Romeo

"Pelle", as he was called, sired 12 litters with a total of 60 puppies.
Pelle had a very harsh and deeply black coat and texture, a beautiful long head, very nice teeth, and a short body. His size was 35 cm.
Pelle obtained the following titles: Neumünster Jugengsieger 1996, Danish Champion, Club Champion, DCHVDH, DCHKLB, Klubsieger, International Champion and Austria/Hungary Sieger. Occasionally he was shown abroad, and also here he was appreciated.
On 14th May 1998 Pelle even took a group-2 placement in Lingen/Ems.
Pelle passed the Rainbow Bridge in 2009 at the age of 14.

Scedir Shirley Tempol-Na

In 1995 I bought an Italian import: "Scedir Shirley Tempol-Na" - Tootsie.
She was close to being the most perfect creature I have ever seen. Her size was 34 cm, she had a harsh black coat and texture, a lovely short body, a beautiful head and eyes. Everything about her was so fantastic including moving like a dream. Also the judges agreed on that. Her temper and personality was amazing too. She won 25 titles and deserved each and one of them.
On 2nd January, 1997 she got her first litter, all beautiful puppies, which had the same beautiful movements like their mother. Tootsie gave birth again in November, 1999, and again in 2000.
To my very great sorrow Tootsie passed the Rainbow Bridge in 2006 at the age of only 11½. I shall never forget my dearest friend.

Nero Argento's Bella bellissima

From Tootsie I kept a lovely bitch, Nero Argento's Bella Bellissima - Bellis. She was born on 2nd January 1997. In shows she did very well and obtained Certificate and BIM. In 1998 she was the top-1 ranking black/silver bitch.
Her size is 34½ cm. Her coat is very harsh and very black, and her movements very good. On 5th September 1999 Bellis received her last Certificate and became so Danish Champion. She is now concentrating on catching cats and mice in the fields together with her foster parents Dorte and Kay. Bellis is also an experienced sailor, an ability she has passed on to some of her puppies.

"Cookie" - "Coco" lives in Ikast. She is from Tootsie's litter sired by Bandsman Double Scoop and born on 24th November 1998. All four puppies were beautiful, with some fantastic movements and long beautiful heads.
"Cookie" is the clown of the family. Every time visiting dogs arrive, she is playing and entertaining. "Cookie" became Danish Champion on 17the October 1999. She was also the Black/Silver Top Dog of 1999, which made her The Golden Dog 1999. On 1st April 2001 she became Swedish Champion.

Scedir Quella Bella

"Toffee" is a quite special dog. She is an import from Italy and moved in with us on 2nd May 1998, 4½ month old. She is small - only 32 cm - but she does not know that!
She moves wonderfully, however she became never a show dog. She preferred to stare into the eyes of the judges rather than look smart in the shows. However, there must be room for that type of dog too. In fact I do not think she realizes at all being a dog!!
Now "Toffee" lives on the island of Mors together with Gitte and Michael, who loves her dearly.

He is owned by Kennel Nero Argento, but lives in Ikast, where he keeps her foster mother very busy and on her toes. "Fjotte" is a big handsome boy with an incredible charm. He has an enormous energy, therefore, it is not easy to control him in a show ring. He is after "Tootsie"and "Uncas".

Nero Argento's Lotus L'Amabile

"Lotus" - who is after "Coco" and "Otto", was meant to have a new home in Norway. Due to some complications she joined us in stead, even though there was not room for two puppies of the same age. However, we enjoyed having her, and she was a very fascinating and a very promising little dog.
She received her first certificate at the age of 14 months. Since then she has obtained several champion certificates. Lotus is 33 cm tall. Her coat is extremely harsh and deep black.
She has a temper but in a clever and sweet way, which leaves it to a bright fantasy to imagine a beautiful winner, when she is digging big holes in Mianne's flowerbeds. They are living in Ikast.

"Lucca" is a born entertainer with a good sense of humour. She is very lovely and charming.
"Lucca" is after "Dustin" and "Ronja". Both of them were Golden Dogs in 2003. That has put some obligations on their little daughter's shoulders.

Scedir Ustinov Peter

Peter is some very special creature. From Scedir in Italy, he came to Denmark.
At first I borrowed him. I entered him for shows without unrestrained, and no matter where he presented himself, he won and has received a substantial number of well-deserved titles.
I did not want to loose Peter, so after some negotiations I was allowed to buy him, which I have never regretted. I believe that neither has Peter, who now lives with good friends in Frederikshavn. He enjoys life together with three other Minature Schnauzer boys.

Nero Argento's Xtra Ordinario

"Kenzoboy" is son after "Peter" and "Xantia" He is so gorgeous. He is beautifully black, and 35 cm tall. His angulations and build are very nice. The same are his movements - that is if it suits him to show them.
"Kenzo" is being well taken care of by Ulla and Vagn in Bjerregrav. However, he somehow manages to convince them that a Miniture Schnauzer MUST have his nose in close contact with the soil at all time. This behaviour is giving me great problems, when he is presented in the show ring. However, such problems must be solved. His puppies have continued his promising development.

Nero Argento's Evviva Enrica

"Rica" or "The Weed" - is a very active young lady who is a member of my kennel. She has some qualities and a pedigree, which I appreciate very much. "Rica" lives with a family of three adults and two children in Ikast. The children are Frederik and Amalie, who are 8 and 11 years old. It could be said that she gets all the challenges she needs. However, at the same time she twists her family around her little paw.
"Rica" has had one litter. The puppies are all nice and beautiful.

Nero Argento's Evviva Enzo

"Enzo" is a VERY handsome dog. He has beautiful outlines and a beautiful trot.

Præstekjærs Isadora

"Isa" lives now with Birthe and Knud in Vildbjerg. She is the daughter of Nero Argento's Xtra Ordinario and Præstekjær's Bianca, who is after Nero Argento's Ferrari Fantastica, a line I very much want to keep.
"Isa" is a lovely little girl, but also incredibly compact. She is 33 cm tall.
"Isa" is always ready to have some fun, and she can get the most boring dog off the couch. "Isa" is Danish Champion, Danish Clubchampion and twice Golden Dog. In fact I believe that she will also be beautiful and funny, even when she gets old.
"Isa" has had two litters of puppies, who have met all my expectations completely.

Corante’s Esonata Arctica.

called "Tica" is imported from Kennel Corantes in Finland.
She is the grand daughter of my lovely "Tootsie", who sadly is no longer here. So I was happy to get a puppy from Scedir Gary Grant and Nero Argento's Ecco la piu Bella.
"Tica" is a sweet little bitch, but her self-esteem is huge. She is afraid of not being noticed, and she will do anything to prevent that from happening.
"Tica" is 33 cm tall and feminine; but also a tomboy.

Walther" lives also in Ikast, like so many of my dogs.
Mianne takes good care of him. He is very lucky living together with two other Miniature Schnauzers. His father is Solo and his mother is Lotus. They are both short and compact. It appears that they have passed these qualities on to their offspring.

Breaking Rules z Dixie

"Uno" arrived from The Czech Republic, Kennel z Dixie, in the Summer of 2007.
"Uno" is very busy looking after all his ladies - an obligation he takes very seriously.
He moves like a dream, his colours are fantastic, and fortunately he has passed them on to his puppies. At the same time he has been a good and loving "Daddy", who willingly has played with his "kids". He is a very interesting dog, and he has done very well in shows.

Her new family includes also Josefine, Lotte and Kim, and they all give her what she needs and deservs.

Cosmic Wonder z Dixie.

"Panda" is my third little Czech from Kennel z Dixie.
She is a lovely small hug dog, therefore, her pet name suits her perfectly.
"Panda" is built very beautifully. She has a firm and nice body together with fine movements.

"Panda" lives in Vedbæk with a nice family.

"Fiona" is the result of "Isa's" romance with "Pilot".
"Fiona" is beautiful and very special. In fact she likes animals better than human beings. She makes a harsh screening of people.

She is compact and is between 33 and 34 tall.

Nero Argento's WW Pilot Massimo.

"Massimo's" parents are also "Isa" and "Pilot".
"Massimo" is a small masculine gentleman with a height of 33 cm.
I love very much to watch him, when he bothers to show all his gifts. However, that is precisely what we are discussing frequently, because he is very very stubborn, and does not care to walk in a leash in shows. However, that is not up to him to decide.
At home he bosses Jette and Jørgen in Them, and they even do not know it!!
