Celebrating our Berner Veterans

In Loving Memory of


June 11th 1995 to May 9th 2009

Proudly owned and now so very sadly missed by Rita Giovannini

Just one month before she died we were in the ring together for the "National d'Elevage (National of Breeding) in France" and she received the cup for the oldest Berner Mountain Dog. My husband and I were so glad and the proudest people in the world at that moment.

She was wonderful and unforgettable, my princess.....

Anthos breeder, Mrs Ilengo had a dog (the mother of my Anthos) Martina del Bel Colle Bell. Colle was one of the oldest dogs bred in Italy by Mrs Lidia Francese.

Anthos' father was Domino Dorfli (Suisse)
