Happy Birthday, dearest George! 🎊🥂🎉

Lieber Freund,
kein Glück dieser Welt hätte grösser sein können, als in dem Moment, als Du vor sechs Jahren in unser Leben tratst. Das Pony sollte es sein – und wir sind und waren so unendlich stolz, Dich in unsere Arme zu schliessen.

An Dir, lieber George, gibt es kein böses Haar, Du bist perfekt in allem, was Du tust, bist immer da, unser verlässlicher, loyaler Begleiter auf all unseren Wegen.

Wir empfinden tiefste und grösste Dankbarkeit, dass Du ein wichtigster Teil unserer Familie bist und wünschen Dir zu Deinem heutigen Geburtstag das Allerallerbeste 💝

Let us all raise our glas to the fabulous NDOKI GENTLE GEORGE, his great breeder Claudia Körner and all his wonderful brothers and sisters! 🎊🥂🍹🍹🎉🎉

Makoa’s Very First Birthday! 🎉🎉🎉

We have the enormous pleasure to announce our friend SABAKU INUS GLORIOUS MAKOA OF GEORGE’s very first Birthday today! One year of sheer joy and happyness!

Dear lille svensken and great friend Makoa, now for one year we know you and we are so endlessly happy you found your way from Sweden to Switzerland. You are our sunshine, bring us laughter, draw a smile on our faces and lift our spirits. You are LOVE, our friend 💖

You conquered our hearts from the very first moment we saw you. You make having a crush on you so very easy – cos your fun ways and your social attitude are absolutely unique. We are madly in love with you – and we are thankful for every split of a second you are with us.

Our biggest gratitude goes to Makoa‘s breeder Pernilla Hallström as well as Sari and Benke Vuorenmaa, who gave him the very best start to his life! You guys have become such important friends for us 😘😘😘☀️👍🏻

Georges will be dad in France! 🇫🇷

Cher Ludovic et cher Yasmina, nous sommes absolument ravis de votre demande et nous sommes très honorés de voir combien vous appréciez à la fois la physique et le caractère de notre bien-aimé garçon Ndoki Gentle George. Votre enthousiasme pour la race et votre grand engagement pour notre future portée sont uniques. Nous sommes donc très heureux et attendons avec impatience cette nouvelle aventure et sommes sûrs que nous allons écrire une belle histoire ensemble.

Training means fun!

Instead of meeting a lot of you guys today for the start of the WORLD DOG SHOW 2020 in Madrid, we would like to share some moments that happened training for the big event with the super talented Dariia Chorna da Silva. Our boys C.I.B./INTCh. BIS MBISS MCh. JBIS MJCh. NDOKI GENTLE GEORGE and his son SABAKU INUS GLORIOUS MAKOA OF GEORGE thoroughly enjoyed working with our portuguese friend.

Today looking at those pictures seems as if they were taken in a different world – but hold on, soon we all shall see each other again 🎉💖🍀 Stay healthy everyone!

*** CRUFTS, Birmingham, 08.03.2020 ***

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! 💖🍀☀️🚀

The greatest Dog Party in the world

And we‘re off! Crufts – here we come! After a fabulous weekend working with the wonderful Dariia Chorna da Silva we set sails to the most amazing and unique dog party in the world! We and our three qualified boys Badrani, George and lille svensken Makoa are ready to enjoy every moment to the max! 🎉💖 Can’t wait to see everyone around ring 34 on Sunday!
