C-litter 5 months old

2017-05-08T09:00:42+00:00 November 27th, 2014|News 2014|
Our C-litter turned 5 months old yesterday, and it’s hard to believe how fast the time is flying! Now most of the pups have lost their teeth, and gotten new and stronger teeth. They are now weighing between 20 and 28 kilos, with the largest boys being in lead. Most of them have started second puppy class, and they are doing great! They are sweet and lovable puppies, but from time to time the little monsters in them show of quite well 😉 We are planning a kennel get-togehter in January, and I hope to see as many as possible then 🙂 I have stolen a couple of photos from Facebook..
Our own little keeper Ninja are also doing great, and she is a very clever little puppy, and so far she is fulfilling all my hopes and wishes for a new puppy. She is an eager worker, and learns very fast. We have already been training for a while, and at the moment we are focusing on heal, stay, down and fetching , which is going great, and she just loves it! I hope she will walk in the steps of her mother, grandfather and the rest of the 5 generations of working ridgebacks that are in her pedigree!

Sheriff Norwegian Veteran Winner 2014

2017-05-08T09:01:00+00:00 November 15th, 2014|News 2014|
Norwegian and Nordic Winner Show 2014 was held at Lillestrøm Trade Fairs this weekend, and I had entered Kiwi and Sheriff both days. We had a great time meeting new and old friends and ridgeback enthusiasts and the dogs was happy and satisfied by attending this “meat ball circus” 🙂 I am especially proud of 9,5 year old Sheriff, which won the veteran class with champion quality at the Norwegian Winner Show, giving him the new title Norwegian Veteran Winner 2014. In addition he was placed as Best Male 4, with a breed entry of 80! 4 weeks ago he removed his spleen in an acute splenectomy, but he has had a quick recovery and he is in a very good condition. I am a proud owner of such a wonderful veteran! ❤️

B-litter get-together

2017-05-08T09:05:04+00:00 November 9th, 2014|News 2014|
The “puppies” from our B-litter are now 8 months old and are starting to become young adults. I guess they have more or less reached their adult height by now, but still have some maturing to do in mass. Nixon and Buddy are both big boys, probably in the top range of the standard, while little Fia at the time being would fit perfectly in the Airedale standard 😉 She is probably not more than 55 cm, and weighing just about 24 kg. She was the smallest one in the litter when she was born, weighing only 250 grams while the other pups weighed around 500 grams. But she was a fighter, and without much help from us, she fought her way to the food and gained weight. But she never reached the others, and it seems she will just be a little girl. But what she doesn’t have in size, she compensate in personality 😉 We had a great get-together in the forest, where mum Kiwi also joined. She was as always happy to see her puppies, and was so gentle and at the same time very clear about who’s still in charge. More photos can be seen here

A little playdate with Lillebror and Kani

2017-05-08T09:07:44+00:00 November 8th, 2014|News 2014|
Ninja, Isi and I met up with Lillebror and Kani. Ninja and Lillebror had not seen each other since they were 9 weeks old, and they played happily together. We tried to take some nice photos of Kani and Isi, but the little rascals destroyed the moments by interupting and photo bombing the photo 😉 More photos here

Puppy meeting with the C-litter

2017-05-08T09:11:40+00:00 November 3rd, 2014|News 2014|
Yesterday we had a small meeting with some of the C-litter pups with walk in the forrest and a campfire. Poppy, Ted, Nicki and Ninja attended, and even if it was raining a bit, we still had a great time, and the pups got to run and play. See photos of the pups below, except for Nicki because her photos didn’t turn out at all this time 😉

Isi debut in rally and Ninja attend her first puppy show

2017-05-08T09:12:17+00:00 November 2nd, 2014|News 2014|
Last weekend I had signed Isi up for her debut in rally obedience class 1 (beginners class). There was 37 contestants in our class, and we ended up as 11/37 with 185/200 points and first leg for class 2. I haven’t trained a lot with Isi lately, so she was not as good as I know she can be. But this made me want to compete more in 2015, hopefully collecting a few rally titles. This weekend Ninja attended her first puppy show, 4-6 months old. It was her first time for many things.. First time inside a hall, first time with so many unknown dogs around, first time in the ring and first time with a unknown person feeling through her. But she really amazed me, being so cool and so concentrated from beginning to end. She stood like a statue in front of the judge, and was happy and comfortable. She got a nice critique, and was placed as number 2 behind lovely Blondie.
