Ch. Al Kamir de Pichera
Kamil, Mil or Millard as he is known at
home is co-owned with Enid Lagree of Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Enid lived
in Germany until summer 1995 and while there became increasingly impressed
with the dogs being bred by the Pichera Kennel. We decided to purchase one
for co-ownership, so Mil came to live in Texas in June of 1994.
Kamil has a lovely hard, double coat, very nice shoulder, deep chest and
prominent forechest. His hindquarter is excellent with nice strong drive.
He has a wonderful gregarious disposition, plenty protective when necessary,
but discerning enough to know when to make friends and he truly loves to
He has produced 4 litters and in each case we have seen lovely puppies with
outgoing, energetic dispositions. Two now have obtained championships and
there are others with major points. Kamil was bred in 1994 to my own bitch
Ch. Skansen's Social Climber and of that litter I took one young bitch Sonnenschein
Unforgettable (Natalie, naturally) to our 1995 National Specialty week-end,
at 6 months of age she was Best of Opposite Sex at both the Regional and
National Specialty Puppy Sweepstakes and Winners Bitch at the Eastern Regional
Kamil's dam is Zarza de Pichera who is a sister to the incomparable Friper
de Pichera. Friper has won the World show as well as the Bundessieger titles
and is one of the top winning Giants of all time in Europe. De Pichera Kennel
is, without question, the top Giant Schnauzer Kennel in Europe today, winning
almost all the big shows the last few years. It was a great honor for Enid
and I to be able to bring Kamir (Kamil) a favorite with his breeders, to
this country for the Sonnenschein breeding program.
