How I came to the dogs...

When I was a little bit more than two years old, my father died and my mother moved back with my brother and me from Grado, Italy, again to Austria.Here we lived up to my start of school with my uncle who breeded hunting dogs (German Short-haired Pointing Dog, German Wire haired Pointing Dog and Weimaraner) and went also hunting with them. With these dogs and puppies I spent my first miraculous years.

Then we moved into a flat and every day I went for a walk with neighbouring dogs.From one of my first salaries I bought my first own dog from the animal home. It was a black Miniature Schnauzer bitch called "Polly" who made me realize that I do not want a life without dogs.After I had Polly put to sleep at the age of twelve years, my first race dog - a dark sable Collie Rough bitch - "Zoe-Gold of Irish Home" came to the house in October, 1989. Then my breeding "del giardino Degrassi" began with her in 1992. She brought me two litters (1992: 7 puppies, 1995: 9 puppies = A- and C-litter).

In July, 1991 the first Leonberger bitch called "Blanca-Mundi vom Zeilachlehen" arrived. With her I had two litters (1994: 1 puppy, 1996: 2 puppies = B- and D-litter). Then there was still "Leo-Limbo zum Silberlöwen" - a Leonberger dog in spring, 1995, a Leonberger bitch "Neva-Princesse zum Silberlöwen" in winter, 1997 and a Leonberger dog "Gep's Big Bears del giardino Degrassi" (called "Bärli") in spring, 2002. I could not use the last three mentioned Leonbergers in the breeding. My last Leonberger bitch "Eris of the Welland" came in December, 2003 to me. Unfortunately she was also not suitable for breeding, so I searched for her - as already for "Princesse" and "Bärli" before - a new good place.

For my Austrian pinscher's bitch "Bimba" (she is a registered land pinscher bitch), indeed, I had to wait very long, but it has been worthwhile in all interests. The white Miniature Schnauzer bitch "Heldin-Gilda Trigenimus" came to the house in June, 2004 as desired by the children. Since August 13th, 2007 "Maia Vita von Amber" - the Giant Schnauzer bitch pepper-salt - is with me."Sandcastle's Ticklish Finja" - a gold sable Collie Smooth bitch - lives since 6th December, 2009 with us. On January 21st, 2015 "Gilda" died of a temporomandibular joint tumor. Since May 1, 2015, lives "Una-Bambi von der Birkenheide" - an Austrian Pinscher bitch and great-granddaughter of Bimba - with us. On September 28th, 2016 "Maia" died of lymphoma cancer.  "Jira" - daughter of "Una's" first litter - is allowed to live with us. It was very difficult for us to say goodbye to "Bimba" on July 17th, 2017 (she was almost 14 years old).

On October 3rd, 1987 I married my husband - Franz Sachslehner. Our children - Clara (1989), Attila (1992), Rudolf (1993), Benjamin (1995) and Jakob (1999) grew up quite naturally with the dogs.

On November 18th, 1998 I passed my form value judge check FCI, after the Leonberger club had "suggested" me. Meanwhile I can judge 29 races and it makes a lot of fun.
