Autumn has been very kind to Africans and Finnish as well. We have made long walks and runs in the woods. As another hobby I have done agility with my girls. We have had so much fun and many moments of success !

Miss Sunnypenny's Agent Muzzle 'Luca' participated his first blood tracking trial with absolutely amazing results. He gainned the first prize with points 45/50 !
Here is his critique, only in finnish though:

'Varma ja rauhallinen ohjattu lähtö. Alkumakuu merkataan. 1.osuus jälkitarkasti, sopivaa vauhtia. 1. makaus merkataan nuuhkien ja kaivaen. Kulma selviää laajalla lenkillä, jolla tarkastetaan marjastajien jäljet. 2. osuudella  pieni tarkastus jäljen sivuun. 2.makaus merkitään myös kaivaen ja nuuhkien. Kulma selvitetään laajalla lenkillä. Ohjaaja luottaa hienosti työtä tekevään koiraan kulmien laajoilla lenkeilläkin. Ei turhia kehotuksia anneta, eikä tarvita. Kaadon osoittaa nuukien ja pureskellen. Koira osaa jäljestää ja tietää tehtävänsä.'

I am over the moon for this result ! And so happy for Sini and very proud of sweetest and talented ever Luca. This news is absolutely in top of everything in my doggy World for a long long time !

We participated Finnish Ridgeback Club's Specialty in Helsinki in August 6th. It was again very hot day at the green grass meeting a lot of friends. Maya's breeder Hanka and some other friends had travelled all the way from Czeck to spend almost a week in Finland. Also the breeder of our A-litter sire Argos Deb and the owner Kirsi came to sunny Finland. It was so nice to spend time with them !

9.8.2014 it was time to join the huge number of people and dogs to World Winner 2014. Both of our girls Pessi and Maya gained excellent. Maya's was placed fifth in her junior class, even the 5th place is not official :) Thank you all for the great company and Liisa for your hospitality during the weekend !
12-13.7.2014

We made sunny and hot road trip to Kokkola and Oulu international dog shows this weekend.
In Kokkola International dog show Pessi was places as BOS with CACIB and that made her International Champion. Even it was very hot days during all weekend she showed herself like a pro.
We were a bit unlucky with Maya, she had temporarily something wrong with her leg and her movement was not clear. Maybe too much rough play with her playmates, who knows. We are so happy to have Jutta as our dog massager, she takes so good care of my girls !

In Oulu International dog show Pessi rocked again being BOS. So happy and proud of my precious girl !

6.-8.6.2014

It was time to start our roadtrip To Riga, Latvia. We were lucky to get Jutta and Kapu as our travelling company.
On Saturday Pessi was placed BOS with CACIB and Latvian Cac under Anca Giura's judging. This placement made her Latvian Champion. She also got the CACIB we needed. Pessi needs to gain only one CACIB to become C.I.B.
Maya won the junior class and was the only junior gaining CQ, so she got the Latvian junior cac.

On Sunday we didn't got that excellent results, but I need to say that the weekend was very succesful and good for us. Kapu, Tiny Trotter's Excalibur, was BOB both days, so it was absolutely amazing weekend for them too !
31.5-1.6.2014

Our Summer show season has started and the way it did was absolutely amazing !
Maya travelled with Nina, Julia, Oiva and Rane to Tallinn. I was not able to join them because of the work.
Maya was having good time both in show rings and outside it.

She gained BOS with JCac in Tallinn Winner, also getting the titles Estonian Junior Winner 2014 and Estonian Winner 2014 ! On Sunday she was placed as BOB and got her 3rd and last Estonian junior cac.
She finished her Estonian Junior championship and also Latvian Junior Championship this weekend.
She also got the qualification to Cruft's 2015.

I am so proud of our little African princess ! Thank you Nina and Julia once again for taking care of her.

Good head profile, a little loose lips. Good neck and front. Good legs, paws and body. Good topline and ridge. Wide tight. Good side movement, front movement may stabilize.'
At the same show Maya placed Jun EXC-3 and Pessi BB-4 with CQ.

Maya entered the traditional Vappu Show in Lahti. The show is the first outdoor show after the indoor season. And what the weather was ordered ! Very very cold, rainy, snowy etc. Not the best possible for the ridgebacks, not to mention their owners.
 But Maya didn't mind almost at all. She showed herself beautifully and at the end of the ring, judge Richard Paquette placed her as best of breed with very nice critique. You can find it at Maya's showpage.
 Absolutely fabulous work done, she is only 13 months old girl !

We had a busy show weekend: On Saturday Pessi and Maya entered Lahti International Dog Show. maya gained her third Finnish cac there being BB-3. She has had three entries in junior class in Finland and got three cac's. Very well done. Pessi's result there was EXC-3 in champion class. We want to thank RR people for such a nice company, once again.

On Sunday it was time to drive to Vaasa International show. Sunday seemed to ment to be Pessi's day; she got CACIB and the judge placed her BOB. So I may say that this weekend was very good for us !
