To be quite honest: when we‘re traveling to the Worlds Greatest Dog Show CRUFTS, we truly feel like winners already when we pack our stuff and know, that we are going to be a part of this Show of all Shows.
But, dear friends, this year things got even better. A lot better. 😉🎉🍀
Showing our master-chief C.I.B/INTCh. MVBIS BISS MVCh. MCh. UMLANI BHEKABANTU BADRANI BAHA is always big time fun, eventhough the colored cards were not for him this year.
Time then for lille svensken SABAKU INUS GLORIOUS MAKOA OF GEORGE to show his talents. It was a dream coming true, when MAKOA got selected as WINNER of Puppy class! Our first ever win at CRUFTS became reality! 💖💖💖💖🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🍀🍀🍀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀😍😍😍😍😍😍
And the day had only just started: 26 of Europe’s finest Ridgeback dogs were entered in Open class… and our dancing pony C.I.B./INTCh. BIS MBISS MCh. JBIS MJCh. NDOKI GENTLE GEORGE was chosen for 2nd place to then be awarded the RCC (Reserve Challenge Certificate) for the Second Best Male of all entries (n = 226!)
So we‘d like to express our deep thankfulness to our three boys Badrani, George and Makoa for being such great friends and partner – and of course also to the judge Mrs G F Mitchelson for thinking so highly of our threesome fabulousity 🍀🎉💖
Many thanks to all our special friends who were such great company on- and offline, following us, cheering and keeping fingers crossed from Moscow to Lissabon throughout the whole show. You are all great.😘
Also the many lovely comments we received at the ring and online were pure pleasure for us. Many thanks for that.
Then we’d like to thank our long time coach Saori Wohlin and our great handling expert Dariia Chorna Da Silva for all their support and inspiration! Working with you guys truly means a lot to us!
A very special moment was, when Judge John Walton Haddon came by to say hello to Makoa. It was him who was responsible for Makoa‘s CRUFTS qualification at LKA Birmingham back in December last year 😉🍀🎉💖
Of course we would also like to congratulate George’s half-bro’ Sonny for getting the CC, the much coveted Best-Of-Breed and even a spectacular BIG 2! Well done Stefanie Radke!
Now there is a good chance to be back at CRUFTS next year, since all boys are qualified for 2021! 💖🍀☀️🚀
