December
Not much news this month with Christmas approaching. But we have been off to Holland again to the Winners show, this time Tracey and her husband Dave came too. This was the first time Tracey (who has Basenjis) had shown abroad and she came away with the Res CAC and res CACIB - not bad for a first time. We met up again with Mary and Katja and had a nice few days.

Ambaa and Fiyaa were both graded as "Excellent" and made the last 6 in the Open class.

GOES BEST IN SHOW AT
BORDER COUNTIES HOUND

under hound specialist Shirley Rawlings

This is the 2nd time this year that a Ridgeback has gone B.I.S, last time in May it was Fiyaa (see news from May).

Christmas Party

It was the time of the year for The Midlands and Northern Christmas Party, all the puppies bar 1 were able to make it and of course not Justus and Fay. We had a wonderful time and it was a joy to see them all again!

Here they are with Fiyaa

Justus and Fay were finally off to the airport on their long journey.
Both arrived safely and were not at all bothered by the journey.

The time has come for us to go off to our new homes. Mum is very sad to see us go, don't know why because she says we are "little horrors" but she still has Fay and Justus for another 2 weeks. They are going to Germany and Sweden.

Sadly this month I lost my lovely natured boy Rei. He had not been well for a while and was rapidly going down hill, his weight loss was devastating, so with a very sad heart and with the vets advice he was put to sleep. Run free Rei with all your friends.

Today we are pleased to announce that Fiyaa's puppies have arrived! There were 12 puppies born, 6 boys and 6 girls (2 liver nosed girls and 2 liver nosed boys), sadly 1 little liver boy didn't make it. Fiyaa is proving to be a good Mum and happily feeding all the puppies herself.

With only about a week left to go Fiyaa is well, and we are getting very excited about the forthcoming puppies.
