News and updates 2010
Another year of success has passed by, and we can look back at it with both joy and sadness. We would like to take the opportunity to thank all people who showed and loved their Sirocco dogs.
ROOKIES OF THE YEAR
Three out of four dogs from last years only litter, Charlie (S. Welcome To The Black Parade), Yippi (S. White Trash Circus) and Nemi (S. Heavens Hung In Black), debutated this year officially in the show rings. And they really made an impression! More about them further down in the summary.
ANGEL OF THE YEAR
Sometimes life takes mysterious turns, and not always in the good direction. Missed and loved, Sirocco Nenya The Ring Of Water "Roffe". A huge thanks to Heli and Kjell that made his life wonderful!

|Yesterday we got a really sad mail from Heli Backlund, Pudervippans Cresteds Finland, owner of Sirocco Nenya The Ring Of Water "Roffe". Due to a severe injury in his back Roffe no longer walks this earth, there was nothing the vet could do to save him. Next week Roffe would have turned 4 years old. He was a wonderful dog to live with, happy and alert, a true joy to be with. We are incredible sad and send all our thoughts to Heli and Kjell, we know Roffe ment the world to them.|

|5/7-10- BEST IN SHOW Chinese Crested Specialty MultiCh BIS Nikita!|
Borås Chinese Crested Club Summer Specialty 3:d of July, Judge Harry Tast, Finland
She's a dream on four legs, both in the rings and outside, our wonderful Qita (Ch BIS Nikita). Last year she accomplished to become Best Bitch and Reserv BIS at the Crested Summer breed specialty, and that's huge in in many ways. But obviously Qita thought that "second place, first looser" wasn't her kind of melody. In the excrucating heat of 30 degrees and with over 100 entrered cresteds she repeated last years result by winning the big champion class with Excellent and then trotted all the way to best bitch as well. But she didn't stop there. Judge Mr Tast explained that she had stolen his heart the moment she flowed into the ring and handed her the Best In Show ribbon! We haven't the words to describe how proud and happy we are!
Charlie (S. Welcome To The Black Parade) was unplaced in the junior class and Mozes (S. Sad Like Winter Leaves) unplaced in the champion class. Chibi (Ch BIS Vanitonia Rumor Has It) was placed as fourth in the champion class with Excellent.
Borås SKC 4:th of July, Judge Göran Bodegård, Sweden

|Charllie and Yippi now got their own pages, see Our Dogs. Also pictures and links to dogs we co-own.|
We got a mail from Theresa Mausberg, Veterinarian of the University of Berne of the Instituotion of Genetics, that took blood samples from Qita, Chibi and Mozes in Helsinki at the NordW-09 show. She took the samples for her studies to locate the gene that separates the hairless crested fom the powder puff. They have now discovered that locus and it showed that Qita, that's a powder puff, did not carry the 7 bp duplication thats necssesary for a hairless. Both Chibi and Mozes carried that 7bp duplication.
|»»2/3-10- PLL Results|
We got the PLL (Primary Lens Luxation) results from OFA. Following dogs are tested and you can find the results at their health pages as well.

*After the NordW- 09 show in Helsinki the three dogs above participated in a science project by leaving a blood sample each and some pictures. This project tries to find the gene that makes the Chinese Crested Dog hairless. Hopefully our contribution will help the scientists to make progress in this matter.
