Our Dogs

Show Champion Riccini Caprice (Mia)Mia was born 15th November 2000, the most wonderful dog that we could have asked for, so laid back and a pleasure to own. Now retired since 2006, she has had the most amazing show career holding the current breed record since 2002 with 30 Challenge Certificates, 20 of them with Best of Breed. She has had the respect of being one of the top gundogs of the past decade. Mia has three times been Best of Breed at Crufts of which no other Spinone has achieved and was awarded Gundog Group 4 at Crufts in 2005. Top Spinone in 2003 and 2004 and has the prestige of winning a Gundog Group at an All Breeds Championship Show and many more group placings. Producer of 4 Show Champions from 2 litters, an amazing ambassador for the breed of which she has made us very proud

Show Champion Riccini Carisma (Ruby)Ruby is the daughter of Riccini Caprice (Mia) and was born on 25th November 2004. She is a wonderful dog to own and loves her cuddles although she would much prefer to be on a lovely long walk and doing what comes naturally. She has also retired from showing but not before leaving her mark. A real showgirl who never disappointed us. Ruby gained 12 Challenge Certificates and followed in her mothers footsteps to become Top Spinone in 2007. She was prominent in the Gundog Group gaining many placings. She now is a mum to her beautiful daughter Bree who has started her own show career in the winning tradition.

Riccini Cristal (Cristal)Born 4th December 2006, a daughter from the second litter of Riccini Caprice (Mia). Cristal has been very successful in her short show career however we have retired her early due to ill health. At her very first show in 2007 aged 6 months she went RBPIS at the ISCGB Championship Show. She has never not been placed at Championship Shows and holds two Challenge Certificates and two Reserve CC's, definitely a Show Champion in the making but her health is more important to us than any title. She is the most beautiful dog with the most wonderful character and loves nothing better than to rummage in the toy box for her favourite toy before falling asleep on the sofa with it in her mouth. Cristal is a joy to own and we love her so much.

Show Champion Riccini Casemira JW (Bree Macphee)Bree is the daughter of Riccini Carisma (Ruby) and was born 11th March 2009. I think Miss Naughty Pants sums up everything about her but we would change nothing. She keeps us entertained on a daily basis with her antics and there is never a dull moment. Bree has had an amazing start to her show career becoming the youngest ever Show Champion in the breed winning her title at just 17 months 17 days. She was also the first undocked Show Champion in the breed and is the youngest Spinone ever to win a Championship Show group placing. Bree has 10 Challenge Certificates and 4 Reserve CC's. Not just a showgirl as Bree is currently being trained for work in the field proving she is indeed 'Fit for Function'. A 3rd generation Champion who has made us so very proud of her.
