120527 ~ Norwegian Ridgeback Speciality show

The happening of the year in the Norwegian Rhodesian Ridgeback Club was finally here, and we had been looking forward to this weekend for quite some time. We had 5 dogs from our A-litter entered, as well as daddy Sheriff and mum Kiwi. We spent the days around the ring with lovely people and dogs, and had an even greater time celebrating, eating, drinking and laughing almost all night long 😉 Thanks to all lovely people involved in this fantastic weekend!

So Juba topped this already amazing weekend of by going Best Bitch 2 with res.CAC, only 10 months old! It’s unreal, and a absolutely amazing feeling seeing my own kennel-name on the winnerslist! Even if we had some nice results, I was so happy to see how nice tempered these dogs are. All 5 juniors entered the ring without any concerns, they behaved beautifully and had an amazing contact with their handlers/owners. They stood like statues when the judge examined them, and wagged their tails happily. I could not ask for more! Varga had never met her handler before, they trained for 5 minutes, and Varga acted like she had known Gunn Tove for ever! This is exactly the types of dogs I want to breed!!
