05/15/2018 - Alice is ITALIAN VETERAN CHAMPION, first IG ever to close the italian veteran championship!

12/30/2017 - Aleph died, today. Aleph (or, if you prefer, IT CH Apparatus For LEP Physics) was my firstborn, and the first (and for now, only) IG that I've ever finished myself. I heard somewhere that we are supposed to not have favourites, but the truth is that he was actually my favourite: he wasn't simply so very handsome from a conformation point of view; he was one of those "once in a lifetime" dogs, one of those dogs that some breeders would like to breed at least once, without ever succeeding, and I felt so SO lucky that I had him in my very first litter. He was a gentle, "happy-hearted" soul, always cheerful, friendly with everyone, people and dogs. I often joked about the fact that more than a dog, he was basically my soulmate. He surely was my favourite travel companion, I could bring him everywhere, and he was always ready for a new trip. He was battling against a mast cell tumor since 2013, and in the end his little heart couldn't simply fight anymore. With the cancer like a sword of Damocles over our head, I always dreaded that one day I would have to face the decision to let him go. Instead he even spared me that: he was so very fine until the last day, and suddenly he wasn't, and in less than 24 hours he was gone. He went into cardiac arrest in my arms, while we were at the clinic, waiting for some analysis results. They tried to restart his heart for about half an hour, but in the end there was nothing they could do. And it is kind of "funny" that now his absence is so much more cumbersome, and heavy, and noticeable, than his delicate presence ever was.
