GCH RAVIRO CHIPOSHI REMINGTON RIMFIRE, JC X GCH/DC HIGHLAND RIM'S EILIDTH BY KENGALI, SC


Bono joined our pack in July 2015 and quickly wormed his way into all of our hearts and is an excellent addition to our gang!   He is such a love muffin!!  He did what every other growing pup does here....quickly made for Strider to make friends and to have him to snuggle up to!  He has quickly adjusted to life on the farm and spends hours each day romping around with his buddies exploring and sadly, wreaking havoc on the gardens.  He began his show career at 7 mos. with a bang during Eukanuba week in December with 3 Reserves and 1 win in 4 shows!   He finished his Championship in style in June at 13 months of age and then went on to achieve his Grand Championship.  He finished his International Championship in October, winning Best In Show Bred By Exhibitor!  So thrilled for this young boy!!

CH ROKISHOAL'S UNDENIABLE AT HUNTER'S RIDGE x GCH KENGALI'S KISSED BY FIRE

 

Our newest Champion!  Huey finished his championship with a third major win on October 26th in Plant City!   He is our sweet lovable big boy who is co-owned and loved by Doug and Jan Pope here in Florida.  Named after Doug's beloved helicopter that he  used to fly back in Vietnam, Huey has become his boon companion and support dog.  Doug finally agreed he could part with him long enough to show him and he hit the show ring with a BANG!  Finishing in just three weekends of shows, we couldn't be more thrilled!   He is a very affectionate, playful guy who makes himself right at home when visiting here on the farm.

Ygritte is our lovely girl from Sachi and Manny's litter and is a true delight!  She is a very active, outgoing girl who never fails to amuse me!  She has totally lived up to the great expectations I had for her, easily finishing her Championship from the Bred By Classes. She also has earned her Herding Instinct certificate, showing promise that she, too, can be a great farm dog. In November 2014, she earned her International Champion title, garnering 2 Group 1s and 1 Group 2 and 3 Best Bred By Exhibitor Group 1s.  So excited to announce Ygritte earned her Grand Championship, finishing in style with 5 major wins, including back to back 4 pt majors in Brooksville. Unlike a lot of Ridgebacks, she LOVES the water and not only likes both fresh water and the ocean, she is a pretty darn awesome retriever, too!  As long as the sticks are thrown in the water, that is!!

BABY GIRL!!!!!    Arya is a SWEET addition to our family, bred by Stacey Ford and Carol Burridge, Aariel Rhodesians.  She has certainly lived up to all of my expectations and more!  She is my Baby Girl and she knows it!   Her sire, Spirit, is also Ella and Jethro's father and one of my all time favorite Ridgebacks, so adding her to the pack only made sense.   In April 2014 she earned her Herding Instinct certificate, proving once again, that ridgebacks can be very versatile, especially if started young!  Stay tuned for her adventures, together with her BFF, Ygritte....they are endlessly entertaining!  She enjoys showing and earned her Championship title in September 2016.  She also earned her International Champion title at an early age in November 2014.  Her motto, if she had one, would be "Life's a Beach!"  She absolutely LOVES going for as many beach runs as she can get!

GCH HUNTER'S RIDGE SURE SHOT BY KWETU  "MANNY" x CH KENGALI DULSIS ISIS OF TERRA CHRISTA  "ISIS"

Hetty is our joyful little girl who is the best combination of both her parents!  She is bold and outgoing and growing into a real beauty.  She started her show training early on, and in her very first show in Perry, GA, won Winner's Bitch!  She has her mother's powerful movement and her daddy's fierce competitive spirit.  Here on the farm, she and her buddies spend endless hours seeking out new things to get into, much to my dismay!  Let's see.  Two blueberry bushes....destroyed!  One gorgeous rose plant, un potted....hopefully will survive!  Plastic flower pots....too numerous to count... destroyed!  Yep!  You get the picture!  Ah, gotta love the youngsters!  This, too, shall pass ....just like teenagers!!  I'm sure we have many adventures ahead of us!!

Duma is our little powerhouse from Tori & Jethro and is an amazing little girl!  In her first show, she won 3rd place in a very competitive class at our National Specialty show in September 2015. Her 2nd time in the ring, at our Regional Specialty in Orlando in December, she won Best of Opposite in Sweeps and was Reserve Winners to a 4 pt major.  She topped that off the next day, showing at the Eukanuba National Championship show and brought home her first win - a 4 point major, Best of Winners and Best Bred by Exhibitor!  I am beyond thrilled and in awe of this beautiful pup!  Like her mother, she is sassy, but sweet, obedient, but an instigator for causing trouble - let's NOT talk about my plants!!! and a beautiful, beautiful girl.  She was back in the ring in the Spring 2016, and quickly finished her championship in September 2016 with her 4th Major win.

GCH KENGALI'S CAPTAIN'S LAST COMMAND x GCH AARIEL'S WINTER IS COMING TO KENGALI
 
 
Reine Marie is our beautiful Legend/Arya daughter and is my joy!  She is a happy, happy soul who spends endless hours entertaining herself hunting lizards and moles all around the farm.  Endless hours!  There are a ton of holes to prove her ability in tracking those underground devils!  Unfortunately, some of my plants get in her way.  Deep sigh.  She and her buddies would much rather spend their days out romping thru the water and woods. Did I mention the endless hours of hunting?  Yes.  Endless!  Needless to say she is very fit!  Unfortunately this also affects her love of showing!  Which she HATES!  She goes off on the show road with her Uncle Arvind who is determined to get her finished....and we both get the Stink Eye from her and looks of utter contempt for making her do this!  And YES!  I have spoiled her rotten and that hasn't helped!  Oh, well! 
C'est la vie!!!  Soon she WILL earn her Championship and as I have promised, never have to do it again!

CH KENGALI'S UNBRIDLED CHARM x TERRA CHRISTA'S KHALEESI DRAGON BY KENGALI
 
Stormborn, indeed!  Khaleesi and her littermates arrived during the weekend of Hurricane Irma.  All the rush of battening down the hatches, getting supplies in and praying the pups would arrive before the storm!  They made it, just in the nick of time!  Then we were powerless for 8 days, no water, no lights, no a/c.  GREAT FUN!  Still - by the Grace of God and the help of awesome friends - we all survived!  Needless to say, Khaleesi has been a spoiled child and is truly a Momma's girl!  Her head is next to mine on my pillow every night!  She is a lovely girl who would much rather be at home, romping around the farm, hunting lizards and moles with her buddies.  She has the sweetest temperament, just like both of her parents and did I say she's spoiled rotten?  NOT SORRY!

BRIENNE!!! When my friend, Carol, called me to ask if I'd like to co-own one of Zendaya's pups with her, the answer was easy!!  YES!!!  Her momma is a Charm daughter from Carol's girl, Summer, and Bono is her daddy....this was a match made in Heaven!!  Brienne has fit right in here on the farm, is BFFs with Fallon and Khaleesi....and let's not forget little Bijoux!  Those girls are non-stop from sun-up til sun-down!  Nothing makes them happier than racing around the farm chasing lizards and swimming in the pond!  We decided to send her to Uncle Arvind for the 2019 summer show circuit and she has been doing AWESOME!  She is showing like a Champ and I know will soon come home as our newest Champion!

Fallon is another of our beautiful daughters of Arya who is an absolute joy to live with!  She has done well in the show ring, and hopefully when life starts to get back to normal, she'll finish her Championship!  Her sire, Cam, was the sire of our foundation bitch, Sachi, and thanks to frozen semen, we have him back and up front in our bloodlines.  While Fallon does enjoy the show scene, unlike her sister, Reine Marie, she is much happier snuggled up on the couch with me when she can!
