Forever in our heart

June 17, 2018

It’s with great sadness I have to announce the passing of our foundation bitch Tappinskis Peach and Passion ~ Kiwi. She was born May 13, 2008 and was put to sleep June 14, 2018 at the age of 10 years, 1 month and 1 day after finding a tumor with metastasis in her abdomen. Out thoughts are with Hilde and Stig, where Kiwi lived her every day life and was deeply loved and cherished every second of her life. 

Kiwi is the foundation bitch of Wayosi Rhodesian Ridgebacks, and up until today she is behind every ridgeback with the Wayosi prefix. She gave us 24 puppies, and to this date she has got 44 grandchildren and 30 great grandchildren. In one way it is a comfort that she lives on in her descendants. 

Kiwi was a very special dog. Without exaggeration, she was the most intelligent dog I have ever met. She could open every locked door and drawer, and even the refrigerator. She was a notorious food thief, and we have lost count on every person she has stolen food from or all the times she has been counter surfing. She has eaten all the stuff a dog shouldn’t eat, and she’s eaten it without regret at all. She was the type of dog who would observe, learn and act, and sometimes she could drive us crazy with her mischiefs. On the other hand she was the most calm, balanced and unafraid dog and every person who ever met her fell for her beautiful soul. She was the type of dog who would curl up in everyones lap, and she would demand her space. If she was asked to lay in the floor in her dog bed, she would look at you with her never tiresome look, and in the end she would get her will. She was special, and I am happy I got the opportunity to start my breeding with such a wonderful dog.   

 

TREASURED FRIEND

I lost a treasured friend today
The little dog who used to lay
Her gentle head upon my knee
And shared her silent thoughts with me.

She’ll come no longer to my call
Eat no more her favorite meat ball
A voice far greater than my own
Has called her to his golden throne.

Although my eyes are filled with tears
I thank him for the happy years
He let her spend down here with me
And for her love and loyalty.

When it is time for me to go
And join her there, this much I know
I shall not fear the transient dark
For she will greet me with a bark.

Planned litter at Damisis kennel in Sweden

April 9, 2018

We are happy to announce that Damisis kennel in Sweden are planning a litter during fall 2018 after Nixon (Wayosi Baby Can’t Drive) and their lovely female Dizza (Damisi’s Durdaana). They have both quite unique pedigrees, which gives a inbreeding coefficient on 0% on 6 generations. They have both done BPH (behavior and personality test) and MT (mentality test, Svänska Jägareforbundet) with flying colors, and they are quite similar in temperament. They are both social with people and loves to play with toys, they are completely unafraid with great nerves and good concentration. They both loves to train and cooperate with their owners, and are lovely working ridgebacks. At the same time they have the important “on/off button” that gives them the ability to completely relax when needed.We are so much looking forward to this combination, and we have high hopes that this combination will give us lovely Rhodesian Ridgebacks with the correct temperament, in a healthy exterior. 

If you would be interested in a puppy from this combination, please contact Petra and Janne Väljä at Damisis kennel.

Pippi with two 1.prizes in rally obedience class 1

April 8, 2018

Even though Pippi lives with us and with our pack, she has a great relationship with Bente, Halvor and Turid who are the owner of Nixon from our B-litter. And because Bente really loves to train rally obedience, and Pippi loves training with Bente, Pippi has been visiting them every now and then for shorter and longer periods, and joined Bente at rally obedience practice. Together they have had great progress, and Bente and Pippi can now add two 1.prizes in rally obedience class 1 to their list! 

They got 188/200 pints and 193/200 points, with 5th place (of 20) and 4th place(of 20) respectively, and thus 2 times 1.prize and two legs towards the RL1 title. Big congrats Bente and thank you for taking Pippi to practice and competitions! We are very happy to be able to share Pippi with you every now and then!
