HOW IT ALL BEGAN
It all started with my big love to setters. The first love in our family was Irish red setter Diana and her puppies Lord and Sirina. As the time went by, they got old and passed away so I started to look foradequate compensation.
Suddenly, the dogs with color spots reached my heart but I was looking for similar temperament,athletic body, long legs and cute eyes breed.
Thanks to my longtime friend Mr. Rastislav Strakoš I discovered the breed of my dreams – Irish red and white setter and this is how the new love began. It took a long search for caring breeder and puppy with great pedigree. All my needs were completely satisfied by ARTEGER kennel with breeder Mrs. Renata Rokůsková. There was a long period of waiting for the puppy´s arrival.
It took almost a year and my new love was born. It was the eve of my birthday on 17th April 2014 during the Easter holidays and my dog I hoped for so long time was already born with a beautiful name BELLANICE ARTEGERD called LANA
We are having a great time together. Lana is very clever, perceptive, dynamic and dominant female dog. After 11 months under the expert guidance of my friend, trainer and hunter Rastislav Strakoš, she passed the talent tests T.A.N. - necessary for studding dog and all the other conditions for breeding, such as a mandatory Club Exhibition and health tests she finished in her 13 months. Lana became the first and only breeding Irish red and white setter in Slovakia.
Lana achieved so many dog show awards. I am grateful my friend Simona Jordan, which we thoroughly prepared for most shows. Lana became a Junior champion of Slovakia and Czech Republic, Champion of Slovakia and Grand Champion of Slovakia and nowwe finished Interchampionship with title C.I.E. .
A year later another dog appeared in our family, English setter, BUCKY, full named as KHYANNES BUCKSHOT from the Hungarian kennel of Mrs. Timea Szőke. It was love at the first sight of a photograph, literally it came to me like a bolt from the sky. After a long and sorrowful journey, I finally could hold him in my arms and take him home.
He passed the talent tests T.A.N. - necessary for studding dog and all the other conditions for breeding, such as a mandatory Club Exhibition and health tests she finished in her 13 months. He is e new studd dog.
Bucky achieved so many dog show awards. He became a Junior champion of Slovakia and Czech Republic, Champion of Slovakia and now he has open Grand Championship and Interchampionship.
Two months later ODETA FROM ALPSKÁ PROTĚŽ captivated my heart by her kindness and lovely gaze. We call her ODIE. She is from Czech kennel full of beautiful dogs owned by Mrs.Jana Johaníková Bednářová.
Odie and Bucky like each other from the early beginning, they are experiencing a lot of funny and playful moments together also with Lana´s assistance. Odie´s and Bucky´s affection is so obvious that we decided to make a couple of them so in the future they will be parents of English setter puppies.
In Slovakia there is no breeding dog for Lana so we have to look for her partner abroad. We believe that her future puppies will be just as beautiful and with pedigree quality as Lana herself.
In November 2016 were born our first litter of LANA with swiss dog VISTADOR BOHEMIAN. From this connection we were born 9 beautiful and healthy puppies, one of them , Angelo, stay with us and bring the pedigree of Lana in our kennel. Other puppies have found excellent families in Slovakia, Bohemia, Germany, Austria and even in England. I believe they will duly represent our Lanamore kennel.
This is a sort history of our LANAMORE kennel that we named in honor of our beautiful Lana, fist breeding Irish red and white setter female in Slovakia. Her Italian and English origins are reasons why we choose a name of our kennel as combination of her name Lana and ambiguous mix of Italian word amore, which refers to our love to her and English equivalent more, which refers to our desire to have more beautiful dogs with pedigree quality as Lana herself.
