Curriculum Vitae - Barbka Novak (SLO)

"Tender golden dogs with eyes made of amber whispers mysteries about pyramids of ancient Egypt about volcano Etna and promises to be – if you’ll understand them – your faithful companion and guardian angel for their lifetime – that’s Cirneco. They are independent and freee and you must simply love those distinctions if you want to accept, understand and love them, as they deserve. Border collies came into our kennel by chance. They fascinate me with their being. Total contrast to Cirnecos which are noble, aristocratic, energetic, gentle but still very independent and devoted. In their nature I found all prime manners of my favorite breeds – kuvasz, pumi and Cirneco. Gentle, faithful, decreed, diligent, to play the buffoon and loyal friends. These are reasons why they stay with me."    Barbka Novak, Seta del Oro Kennel


After years with mixbreed in early ’80, two purebred dogs came in my life : hungarian kuvasz Koviragsori Elza and cirneco dell’Etna Seta. Only two year latter, kennel name “Seta del Oro” – golden silk - was registered. I never was big breeder, but cirneco, coming out from my litters, were foundation dogs in many kennels and in many European countries, however in US. In 1997, a border collies enter into my life. This perfect dogs stays with me, as they are perfect combination between cirneco and kuvasz. “Seta del Oro” dogs gained for 6 world champion title, 3 world junior champion title, 8 European champion, 2 European junior and 2 European veteran champion title and 1 World veteran winner. However over 60 different champion titles belong to “Seta del Oro” dogs, from this over 10 international show champion.
