43 days old

2017-09-03T23:11:52+00:00 September 1st, 2017|G-litter blog|

The puppies are 43 days old today, and now they are really developing! For every day they become more and more agile, and they are expressing more and more of their personalities. I haven’t finished the puzzle as for who is having which puppy yet, because they have so far been very similar in temperament, and I need to get to know them even better to lay the puzzle. At the moment I have 1 male available, which we are looking for the perfect home to. It might also be 1 female available, but it all depends on how she develops the next weeks. But you are welcome to contact us, if you think you are the perfect home for our precious jewels. Read more about our requirements for puppy buyers

I am very satisfied with this litter. They are happy and sweet tempered, and loves people and cuddles. They are exploring our house and the outside without hesitating, and seems unafraid and curious. They have already been visiting my mothers garden, and they have been driving in car several times already and thrives in the car! They are easy going and are not very noisy or demanding for our attenntion, but are exploring and relaxing by them own. At this point, I couldn’t be more happy with them!

30 days old

2017-08-20T19:30:45+00:00 August 18th, 2017|G-litter blog|

The puppies are 30 days old today and now we are starting to se more of their personalities as they start to move around more and engage in different things. This weekend they have been out for the first time, and they did very good for being their first time outside. Hopefully the weather will be kind to us in the next weeks, so the puppies can explore the outside as much as possible! We have taken 30-day portraits and stacks, as well as some other photos from the puppy box. Enjoy! 🙂

23 days old

2017-08-20T19:09:55+00:00 August 12th, 2017|G-litter blog|

The puppies are 23 days old, in other words just 3 weeks old. They were moved down to our living room the other day, giving them more sounds around them, and allowing us to interact more with them. Today we also did the first stacked photos, and they all did quite well for being only 23 days old. Compared to my other litters, their weights are a little lower in average and they some how feel a few days later in development. But nothing wrong in that 😉

Below you can see some new photos, and more photos can bee seen at the G-litter page, at the bottom of the page.

21 days old

2017-08-10T08:48:01+00:00 August 10th, 2017|G-litter blog|

The puppies are 21 days old today, and they will get their first taste of solid food today. I will give one by one a little taste, and see if we can get them up on their feet for a little while, giving us the chance to have a look at their exterior assembly. This litter has not been bred in order to produce showstoppers, but like any other breeder we do enjoy looking at a moderate and balanced dog. So hopefully the pups would also have a nice balanced exterior. 

Ninja is a wonderful mother, and she takes such good care of her puppies. She is calm and relaxed, and really doesn’t need any help from us. Pippi is very curious of the puppies, and spends most of her time in the puppy room. She thinks the puppies are scary interesting, so she steps into the puppy box and quickly jumps out again when the pups moves towards her. I think she will be a great play aunt for the pups, just as Ninja was when we had the D-litter.

15 days old

2017-08-08T07:13:16+00:00 August 4th, 2017|G-litter blog|

Today the puppies are 15 days old, and they are doing fine. We have had a little loose stools on both Ninja and pups, but it has stabilized and their stomachs have settled. This sometimes happens without any particular reason, it can be something the mother has eaten, or bacterial or viral infections amongst other. The puppies are very lively and strong headed when it’s time for eating, and they pushes their way to the milk! They have all opened their eyes, and are becoming cuter each day!

The G-litter on it’s way

2017-08-01T23:56:34+00:00 July 10th, 2017|G-litter blog|

Our G-litter it’s on it’s way and are due around July 20th. The dam of the litter are our own Ninja, and the father is the Austrian male Zurimahali Fumo Red. You can read more about the planned litter and view pedigree and information about parents here

The pedigree consists of genetically valuable lines thru the old lines behind Fumo, which is also one of the biggest reasons we choose to do this combination. With this, we hope to maintain as high genetic variation as possible. On top of this, both Fumo and Ninja are easy going and social dogs, they have a great temperament with strong nerves and are easy to train and work with. They are off course healthy as can be, and we for sure hope that the puppies will be as great companions as their parents!

The photos of Ninja are taken at day 50 of pregnancy, and we are looking forward to see what’s hiding inside her belly!

Last show of the year

2017-07-04T21:38:44+00:00 December 30th, 2016|News 2016|

December 28 and 29 we attended the last show of the year in Norway. I had entered Pippi, Chaco and Allie, and in addition Nala was entered. 

First out was Pippi who had her debut in junior class, and she showed her self in a super way, standing like she had never done other and was happy and alert as only Pippi can be. She was rewarded excellent and won the class, but did not get an CQ due to the judge wanted her color to be a little clearer. But that’s the color Pippi is.. 

Nala was entered in intermediate class, and did a great figure as always. She runs with super contact to her owner Caroline, so it’s not difficult to see that she is obediance trained 😉 Nala received an very good with a nice critique, but at the moment she is very unmature in her body, and she is also a very elegant female on the smaller side. But she is always happy and self confident in the ring, and has no problems with being checked by the judge, or with the other dogs. She is such a sweet girl! 

The next day we had the Airedales entered. Chaco was first out in intermediate class, and this was also his first entry to an official show. He did a great figure, and even if his show training are very limited he behaved like a pro and got excellent with CQ and was placed as best male 2 behind an champion. This gave us our first national CAC, which made me really proud of our young monkey Chaco! The judge Per Kristian Andersen also said that he would become a really nice male when maturing even more, and I was happy to hear that. In addition Chaco really showed his superb temperament by calmly laying down on the floor while people and other dogs where walking past him. He is so cool in his head, and has such a sweet character towards both people and other dogs. 

Next up was Allie, also in intermediate class and also first show entry. She was a little to intense and interested in the treats, so she was jumping a little bit during movement, and had a little struggle with standing still in front of the judge. But bearing in mind she have had one training session before, I have to say that she impressed me! She was awarded excellent, but the judge wanted her to mature more. But he also said that she had some good qualities, and would become a good looking dog with age. Her coat was not in super show condition at the moment, but hopefully my grooming skills develops slightly during the spring 😉

Visiting Maggie’s puppies at Kennel Kawanda

2017-07-04T21:43:31+00:00 December 6th, 2016|News 2016|

Last weekend my mother and I travelled to Stockholm to look at Maggie‘s 5 puppies, at my good friend Hanna Karlsson (Kennel Kawanda). The puppies are out of Wayosi A Kind of Magic x Shelridge Aussie Rebel, and they were 33 days when we were visiting. I was happy to see that they are social, curious and playful and Maggie is a super mum, just like she was with our C-litter. The puppies also shows great exterior promise, and even if some has ridgefault, one shouldn’t be surprised if I would include some of them in my breeding plans in the future 😉

New working results for the Wayosies

2017-05-05T10:47:05+00:00 October 28th, 2016|News 2016|

Since our last updates on working trials, we have gotten some new titles! Tesla and Nixon now has earned their RL1 title for taking 3 1.prizes in rally obedience class 1, and Ninja earned her RL2 title for taking 3 1.prizes in rally obedience class 2. Nala has gotten 2 1.prizes in RL1, and just need one more 1.prize for her RL1 title. Maggie earned her SEVCH (swedish blood tracking champion) title after taking 3 1.prizes in blood tracking.

I entered Ninja in RL3 at a competition in Eidsvoll, but because we had not trained much on the class 3 exercises I didn’t even expect to come around the course without being disqualified to to many repetitions or faulty execution. But Ninja had a lot of fun in the ring, and we almost knew all the exercises and we managed to get a 2.prize and was placed as #2 in the class! The day after we attended LP1 (obedience class 1), and without the biggest energy and motivation, I was quite happy with our 3.prize, only a few points from a 2.prize.

Nixon has also made us very proud, and has become approved as a visitor dog in the Norwegian Red Cross!

Some new photos of Pippi

2017-05-05T10:48:00+00:00 October 12th, 2016|News 2016|

During the Rhodesian Ridgeback World Congress Show in Lund, Sweden, Monika Pehr took some photos of Pippi while she was shown in the puppy class, 8 months of age. Pippi is turning into a stunning young girl, even though she has more black hairs on her neck and tail tip than many appreciate. But for me this is just a minor detail, and I was well aware when I bought her as a young puppy that she would end up with this color palette. But I haven’t regretted my decision one single time, as she has the most wonderful personality and temper, and she has a body structure I just can’t stop looking at. She is everything I hoped for, and more! She has very strong bones, stands on tight and strong paws, everything on her body just flows into each other and she is balanced all over. Now she is 1 year old on just a couple of days, and we will do HD- and ED-xrays before christmas.

MT for Chaco, Allie, Nala and Storm

2017-05-05T10:48:17+00:00 September 24th, 2016|News 2016|

Friday, September 23 was spent deep in the Swedish woods together with judges and other ridgeback breeders for the annual MT (mentality test) arranged by Svenske Jägareforbundet. We had Chaco, Allie, Nala and Storm with us and they all did a very good test, taken into account their young age at 17 months and the quite stressful test this is. Both test protocols and video from the test can be found on each dogs own page.

The star of the day was without any doubt Allie, who did an absolutely wonderful test, showing her great nerves, with curiosity and playfullness, great concentration, no fears what so ever and great self esteem. Even if Allie is a family dog, and not trained and competed in dog sports, this test shows us that she has all the right qualities to be a successful working dog. And not to forget, that a dog with great nerves also is the best family dog, which is also just as important! For me it’s great to see that next generation of working line Airedales in Norway is secured! 

Nala showed her self just like we thought, and showed that she’s playful and very lively, very good nerves with good concentration and no remaining fears. She still needs to mature in her head, and when she does she will end up just as good as her mother Kiwi

The boys Chaco and Storm both did similar test, even though they are of two different breeds. They both showed that they are playful and happy, with few and no remaining fears. But the concentration wasn’t the best at the moment, and it was not difficult to see that there are quite some flies in the boys head at the time being 😉 When their puberty has landed, bot boys will for sure end up as solid male dogs with solid nerves. We are looking forward to their nest MT in a couple of years!

We have had a great weekend in the mountains at Skeikampen this weekend, together with our extended family. In total we had 17 dogs and 12 families attending, and it was quite a sight when everyone walked in a long line over the mountain! In the afternoon on saturday we had a funny competition before putting up the party tent and barbequeing together. This have become somewhat a tradition for us, and next year I’m looking forward to gathering the Wayosies again!

The Rhodesian Ridgeback World Congress

2017-05-05T10:49:56+00:00 July 2nd, 2016|News 2016|

The last 4 years I have worked with the Rhodesian Ridgeback World Congress 2016 in Lund, Sweden together with the rest of the RRWC16 committee from Norway, Sweden and Denmark. As we were only ladies in this committee, it has been a real “girl power” committee, and even though we are all different personalities, we have worked very well together, and we are very proud of what we have managed to pull trough! On the website www.nordicrrwc.org you can follow the entire planning of the congress, and the entire program we put together as well as the congress program, are published and open for everyone to take part of. 

We had over 200 participants, from over 20 different countries, from all over the world and the congress hotel Scandic Star Lund was filled with rhodesian ridgeback enthusiasts the whole week. From what we experienced everyone was having a great time, discussing important topics and socializing with people that shares the same interests. I couldn’t imagine spending my vacation in a better way! 

Pippi and Ninja joined us at the congress, and I am thrilled with how these young girls behaved throughout the event. They spent quietly the days in the hotel room, making no noice and just relaxing, and joining me for a long walk in the nearby forest during the early mornings or late afternoon. Afterwards they politely followed me in the hotel lobby, cuddling with other people and steeling a small taste of some local beer from the low sofa tables in the lobby. They also attended the Norwegian and Swedish congress shows, showing themselves nicely.

Sheriff’s young son Fimbe (Oppigårdens Fimbul), brother to our own Penny, won the puppy class at the congress show in Sweden with a lovely critique, and became a little mascot of the congress with his sweet and loving personality, and his perfect size that fitted every lap perfectly 🙂

Chaco’s first show

2017-05-05T10:56:09+00:00 June 11th, 2016|News 2016|

This weekend we had entered Chaco to his first show at the Airedale Open Show in Drammen. I was a little bit worried if he would be very interested in all the other dogs and would loose his concentration, but he totally surprised me and was behaving like a pro! He stood like a statue in the ring, only focusing on me and the treats. Outside the ring he wanted to kiss and cuddle with every people, and just wanted to play with the other dogs. Just like the wonderful dog we know him as from home. He was awarded excellent 1 in his class wita wonderful critique from judge Espen Engh, and was also given certificate quality. We were shotlisted in Best Male as 5th best male, but that is for sure a nice debut going against all the good looking and well trimmed males!

BPH with the B- and C-litter

2017-05-05T10:56:42+00:00 May 23rd, 2016|News 2016|

This weekend we traveled to Sweden together with 11 Wayosies from the B- and C-litter for their BPH (behaviour and personality test). I want to say a BIG thank you to all my fantastic puppy owners for taking time to travel here with us, it means the world to me!

All dogs did a good test, and even though they are all different individuals with their own personality, they all have good nerves with no remaining fears. Thanks to these tests, I know what I would have to have in foucus when planning my further litters. And thanks to these tests, the owners of these dogs knows a little more about their dogs, even if the results of the test did not surprise many of them 😉   

Photos from the BPH can be seen HERE. Each dogs page are updated with protocol and video of the test, the B-litter HERE  and the C-litter HERE.
