The Story about Kennel Orinell
Ori= Orion & Nell=
It all started in 1989
when we (my family) got our first Chow Chow. Before that we had only had
Standard Puddles for pet, never been on a dog show. We all wanted a
new breed and choose a Chow Chow. My mum once saw one in a park, and
it was walking around just like a king.
We got introduced to
Kennel Kastager, where we bought our very first Chow Chow- a black
male called Kastager Orion. We had never thought that this
should be the start of something big. A year and a half later, we
got our second chow – a red male called Kastager Farinelli.
Orion never really liked to be shown, so a few years later he
retired from the show ring. Farinelli was just the opposite and
loved every minute in the ring. He managed to become Danish
In 1994 we got our first
bitch – a black bitch called Grønbæks Quelle Miss Indiana.
The sweetest girl you could ever imagine.
I had for a few years
been grooming dogs at Kennel Blaatand, and had decided that I would
like a puppy from her red boy; Usada Crackshot. In 1997 I had my
first own chow, which still lived at my parent’s place, a red male
called Blaatands Loui Liyang. Unfortunately Quelle and Loui
ran out from our garden a got hit by a car, when Quelle was only 4
years and Loui only 6 months old. That was a big tragedy to us.
A few months later Kennel
Pasjos gave us the most precious gift ever, a red bitch called
Pasjos Orris Red Zakeea. She was the beginning of Kennel
Orinell. She had a great show carrier, and managed to become bitch
of year in 2002.
We kept a black bitch
from her first litter (A-litter) Orinell's Amy the Black Princess
(Amy). From Amy we kept Orinell's Cover Girl (Cover),
Orinell's Cute Carmen (Carmen) and
Orinell's Ego Trip
(Jubii). All three of them were from our very successful litter with
Pie Fang Norwegian Cream.
In 2008 we had our first
Import – a cream bitch called Pei Fang Eyecatcher (Nynne).
And then the
American Cocker Spaniel:
I had wanted an American
Cocker Spaniel for
a long time, and
got in contact with Kennel Galaksi. I bought my first Amris in 2001,
a red/white male, Galaksi Try To Remember. He was my very
first dog, living with me only. And I guess he got as spoiled as
much as a single dog can be. Sometimes I still think that he is
wondering when him and I can move to a desert Island just like in
“good old days” – sorry Julius.
Julius has had a great
show carrier, and is now a very stylish Veteran.
In 2004 we got our second
Amris, Galaksi Drop Dead Beautiful (Sisse), a black/white
bitch. From the very first time in the show ring, she just said to
me: “this is boring mum…. Please let my go hunting.” My husband
Michael thinks that she is the most clever creature on earth. And so
it has been ever since – Sisse is staying home, enjoying ever single
day of her life.
Today at Kennel Orinell,
my mum and dad (Solvej and Poul Erik) have Amy and Cover living at
their place. At our place, my husband Michael, I and our two
daughters Emma and Julie live together with Carmen, Jubii, Nynne,
Julius and Sisse.
Michael refuses to go to
the dog shows, but he is taking a very big part of the daily work
with the dogs and puppies, when I am not around.
As for the
girls, Emma is a really dog-girl, who loves to join her mother at
the dogshows. Julie is not really showing any interests for the
dogs, but she is only 3 years – so her mum is still hoping.
