Our most fabulous and heavily loved C.I.B/INTCh. MVBIS BISS MVCh. MCh. UMLANI BHEKABANTU BADRANI BAHA is celebrating his 10th birthday today. Join the party, forget about social distancing and send him a virtual hug! 💝🎉🍀 Dear Badrani, every day we have you with us is the greatest gift! Stay strong like a lion and look after us – with you we are safe! 😘
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! 💖🍀☀️🚀
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! Have a safe trip to Birmingham everyone! 🍀🍀🍀🍀
The difference lies in the details. And to achieve such beauty with so much fun and good vibes is something only true Pro‘s like you Dasha are able to perform! 💪🏻👍🏻🎉💖🚀
Our C.I.B./INTCh. BIS MBISS MCh. JBIS MJCh. NDOKI GENTLE GEORGE full of motivation showing his qualities with Dariia Chorna da Silva 💪🏻😍
Nach 450’000 km (!) geht unser VW T5 Multivan (Jhg. 2009) Ende Februar in Rente. Aus diesem Grund verkaufen wir den für uns perfekten Einbau von hundeschutzgitter.de (Thomas Witte) an den Schnellstbietenden.
Der Einbau hat die Masse 160 cm in der Breite, 122.5 cm in der Länge und die Standhöhe ist 100 cm.
Die Hunde fahren erhöht auf einem Tisch und geniessen so auch im Liegen
We are feeling very privileged and blessed to be in company of the three most loving, most loyal, most protective and most admirable friends. 🥰🥰🥰🍀

Many, many thanks to their fabulous breeders Stefani Westphal Vonesch, Pernilla Hallström/Sari Vuorenmaa and Claudia Körner for the trust in us and thus giving us the chance to live with these three hearts of gold. 💝💝💝
Following his achievements at the LKA LADIES KENNEL ASSOCIATION GENERAL CHAMPIONSHIP DOG SHOW BIRMINGHAM our wonderful boy C.I.B./INTCh. BIS MBISS MCh. JBIS MJCh. NDOKI GENTLE GEORGE was awarded the honour of being part of The Kennel Club UKs Stud Book! So George has received his own Stud Book Number (4020DF) and his name will be published in the „big red“ Year Book of the Kennel Club. His name and the wins are recorded to be kept in the Kennel Club library.
Eventhough where we live the landscape looks a lot more spring-like than winter wonderland, we have spent a wonderful week to start the year in Alto Adige. There we have found plenty of snow to take some pictures of our three boyz.
C.I.B/INTCh. MVBIS BISS MVCh. MCh. UMLANI BHEKABANTU BADRANI BAHA, his buddy C.I.B./INTCh. BIS MBISS MCh. JBIS MJCh. NDOKI GENTLE GEORGE and his great son, lille svensken SABAKU INUS GLORIOUS MAKOA OF GEORGE (now 7 months) wish you all a fantastic weekend! ❄️☀️🎉
It‘s not a secret, that we simply love trips to England 🏴. So the plan to visit the second largest British dog show in the NEC premises in Birmingham was easily set. Besides having a great time traveling and meeting lovely friends, the goal was to get our fabulous SABAKU INUS GLORIOUS MAKOA OF GEORGE his qualification for CRUFTS 2020. With honorable judge John Walton Haddon being in charge of the ring, MAKOA made things look easy 😍💖🎉Our lille svensken WINS MINOR PUPPY CLASS and gets his first CRUFTS qualification in style. 🎉😍💖🍀
His already livelong qualified daddy C.I.B./INTCh. BIS MBISS MCh. JBIS MJCh. NDOKI GENTLE GEORGE made everything right and became SECOND in the well equipped OPEN class of 16 entries. 😍💖👍🏻🎉
In the more senior class of the VETERANS, C.I.B/INTCh. MVBIS BISS MVCh. MCh. UMLANI BHEKABANTU BADRANI BAHA had a word or two to say and got FIRST – his premier win on English carpet! 🎉🎉🎉🎉💖💖💖💖.
Talking about carpet: the blue LKA carpet was in no way inferior to the famous green one at CRUFTS 👍🏻The size of the beautiful ring was just a joy to run in, the atmosphere was always calm and relaxed. Showing here is just great! 👍🏻
Many thanks to Peter Sodemann and Samira Karavidic, who were such great company. Also many thanks to Dorothy Grayson Wood, who helped us finding the right website to enter the show, then to Gill Lawless for explaining the British rules and procedures and thanks to Helen Mansfield for holding Badrani at the perfect moment, when I had not enough hands myself 😉👍🏻
So we have all three of our boyz qualified for CRUFTS now, which is what we were aiming for. And thanks to Jo Chesshire there‘s yet another reason to look forward to March next year 😉#noDiet #5aDay #RockyRoadRocks 😂👍🏻💖
We wish all our lovely friends around the world a wonderful X-mas time. Enjoy the last weeks of the old year and look forward to a fantastic 2020 to come!
