We - these are - - Sylvia und
Werner Pokorny - are so lucky to have enough time and possibilities in spite of
family and profession to divide our life at the same time with wonderful dogs.
Few years ago my dogs and I moved in a small village near Vienna and next to Baden.
Even my whole live - I love dogs:
although at first only I have to snuggle with a big pet with wheels on its
feet- because real dogs always lied down and slept, whenever I wanted to play
But my parents,
they tried to understand me - and when I grew up, they allowed me to
train our german shepherd-dogs. The most time - even Sunday early in the
morning - you could find me training them obedience or field-trail and so on.
pleasure, my husband and I got to know each other and he gave a wonderful
charming dog to me - Muck vom Aichtal - many years he escorted us with his
charm and happyness.
Our whole family
love animals - our children - already grownups now - they lived together with
guinea-pigs, rabbits, hamster, tame rats, budgerigars, fishes, a grey parrot,
some cats and - of course - dogs.
My son loved his
black cat - and it did just the same:
||My daughter is
an excellent rider and we spent a lot of time with our horses - our dogs
were seen everywhere with pleasure, they enjoyed to come with us, they liked
the smell and the stable so much.
Our first Cocker-spaniel bitch
was "Leslie" (Lucky Lips vom Österreichring) - with her first litter we founded
our kennel "Midwinter" at 1995,
In the meantime there are
already a lot of offspring from our studdogs and we are so pleased to hear
about them. That`s fine that they are - special in foreign countries like
Finland or Germany - so successful and popular.
Already more than thirty years
we live together with lovely dogs. It`s so wonderful - every morning, our
charming and merry spaniels welcome us - and therefore we are able to begin
every day with a smile.
We are breeding English Cocker
Spaniels - but however the last years we also realiszed our love to English

My "education": during the time
I had worked for the Österreichischen Kynologenverband I was lucky to met a
granddame at the Austrian Kynologie Mrs Bublik . She told me a lot of the most
different dog races and opened my eyes for their needs and nature. I also had
the possibility to be friends of experienced and female breeders. On behalf for
it I would like to call Mr. Fritz Brodbeck - he teached me the base of breeding,
selection and whelping, and Mrs. Maria-Luise Doppelreiter, she was decisive for
that I get fond of dog-shows and last but not least Mrs.Monika Bollinger. Here,
at her kennel I learned to know spaniels in all her vacets, all ages and colors.
Also I could be beside to some births and was allowed to hold a newborn puppy in
my hand - special at the time I could not - as for my professional reasons -
breed myself .
To all of them I want to say "Thank
you so much" - and of course also to the best of all masters, to my dogs.

Für Werner (Feb 1943 - April 2009)
dich leben zu müssen – ein weiteres Jahr einen neuen Sinn finden zu
müssen – wenn der Kalender das Frühjahr anzeigt - wenn die Natur
erwacht – wenn die Sonne uns wärmt - dann spüre ich den tiefen
Schmerz in meiner Brust – erlebe den Abschied erneut und mein
Verstand sagt mir, dass ich lernen muss, deinen Tod zu akzeptieren –
mein Gefühl sagt mir, dass so vieles von dir in mir lebt und bleibt.
Dankbarkeit und Liebe
