The Showsight Magazine, November 2011 issue, had a very good article "Judging the Spinone Italiano" with a follow-up entitled "Spinone History". I would like to add a few more facts about our early Spinone history in the 1980's and early 1990's, and welcome and encourage additions from our over 800 readers on this website! Please respond.

One of our first Spinone owners to show and promote in the AKC Miscellaneous Class was Gloria Arata in the northeast with ArKels Angie.

Elizabeth Greenwell in northern California was also one of the early AKC Miscellaneous Class entries with Bella Crispina CDX (daughter of Kemo). Bella was the first Spinone to earn an Obedience CDX title. Two of Bella's pups were owned and shown by Victoria Welsh also in California.

Ruth Adams in Indiana also participated in the AKC Miscellaneous Class events and received the second Spinone CDX title with Dina Vera. Ruth's Mia and Luigi were also entered in many AKC events. Ruth was also the first Spinone rescue "person" having rescued and placed many of Badollet/Sonny Purvis' La Roma LaGina's six litters. Gina was a littermate of Bella Crispina.

Risky Business Jennifer (also a daugher of Kemo) and Risky Business Diana Dell'Arda (bred by Davide Zirondelli) were the first two Spinone to earn the ARBA Grand Champion of Beauty and Hunting Award having met both the show and hunting requirements for tht title from ARBA. Diana was the mother of McPherson's Renata.

John Kerr's Duncan was the first (and maybe the only) Spinone to earn an ARBA Supreme Championship (show, hunting and obedience).

Risky Business Georgio (Geo) owned and handled by Cathie Moses, was the first Spinone to earn a tracking award.

The first two Spinone to receive a NAVHDA Utility Award were Jack (Risky Business Dell), owned by Larry Dickey, and Guido Dell Dante, owned by Kelly Hendrix and Ron Stanerson. Both earned at a very early age (less than 1 and 1/2 years) at two different NAVHDA tests but on the same weekend.

And while we are are talking about people, Larry Dickey, Don Stephens, and Don Adams, were the three lawyers who spent much time and effort to complete the legal requirements for SCOA in 1986.

And where would the Spinone world be without Berdell Koch and her Ty and his many accomplishments????

Then there were the two dancing Spinone, Fred Astair and Ginger Rogers in TX, dancing and talking Spinone in AZ (Marmis Tucker), the Spinone who played Sandy, several therapy Spinone including Jill (daughter of Kemo) and Lia (starting therapy visits at a very early age to a children's cancer clinic in MI), Lena's Sunrise (who had many achievements years before Lena's Rufus), Lauren's A'Ja and Dr. Ruth Tattersall's UK imports in New England. Also who could forget Dave Nordquist, Norm & Carol Prima, Michael Parachini, Ed Hanna and Denise Hanna Nosko with their early hunting Spinone achievements.

I welcome your comments on these and other early Spinone. Feel free to add your own comments and experiences!

What about Carlos, nothing was said about him. He sired numerous AKC show and hunt champions. How about the navhda assoc. champions, that went on to the invitational that he also sired.
What more could be said that his offspring also sired great hunting dogs.
It is all in the line of great hunting dogs.
I for one am privileged to have both Carlos and Kemo offsprings, they are great hunters.

That is right! Jim and Guido decided that there needed to be additional lines other than Kemo here in the states and went to Italy, meeting Paolo and Roberto Amadori (who both came over for judging annual meeting conformation events) with their Epithelium lines, including Carlos, Chico and Jake and Joe. Carlos did indeed have at least 16 litters with many champions and NAVHDA Invitational winners. Guido's Nora Di Val Potenza was also from the 'Epithelium lines. Nora (aka Lila) had 9 litters, several of whom are still alive.
