Musanga Sanga Mukana at Nyassa

(Imp Netherlands)

Born 29th October 2002

Hips 3:5



In November 2003, Kana arrived in the UK from his breeder Marjon Eshuis Franke of the Musanga Kennel in The Netherlands. An extremely intelligent boy, it took him little time to settle in with the Nyassa pack and was soon vying with the others for space on Mum’s Lap! A pleasure to take to shows his temperament is second to none, having a huge heart and full of love for everyone.  

In late 2005 his breeder, Marjon, lost his dam Sanga in tragic circumstances. Needless to say Marjon, husband Marco and son Mick were devastated by this sudden loss but no more so than Sanga’s kennel mate Roora. Roora became very depressed, wouldn’t eat and was wasting away before their eyes. It was this scenario that presented me with one of the biggest decisions involving dogs that I have ever had to make. While not an easy decision to make I came to the conclusion that Kana’s place was with them, helping to ease their pain and to prevent Roora from fading away. So it was on the 4th February 2006 I kissed my beautiful boy goodbye as he returned with Marjon and Marco to Musanga. His legacy in his offspring is still here with us at Nyassa, as well as elsewhere in the UK. Having gained 2 CC’s Kana will be returning during the summer of 2006 with a view to hopefully gaining his third CC and thus becoming a UK Champion. Thank you Marjon for letting me “borrow” this amazing boy. GOOD LUCK KANA my beautiful boy, see you in the summer.
