It was a day of great joy and excitement when the little puppy arrived in Madeira 18. March 2001. Finally! I had been waiting for my own flat for more than 25 years. It just had not been possible earlier due to work and living situation.

My beloved Odin left us much too early in life. He was a fantastic personality, intelligent, and with loads of humor. He got along with just anybody, dogs, cats, young and old, and he made a strong impression in the neighborhood, and among friends and family. Odin was with me as good as 24/7 for almost 7 years, and we had a very special relationship.

This beautiful, handsome dog was the only one of his breed in Madeira, and he was admired and photographed where ever we went.

I never planned for Odin to have a career in expositions. Here, in the middle of the Atlantic it involves a lot of planning, and quite a bit money, as we must travel by plane, rent a car, and get accommodation. However, after thinking about it for some time, and after being tempted by Isabel, the breeder I decided we could give it a shot. It turned out to be very successful. After a few trips to the mainland, Odin could in June 2005 call him self a Portuguese Show Champion!
