29.09.2008 Adam at 6 weeksThe "A" Litter is 4 years old today! A very happy birthday to Adam and al of his siblings!!

In the absence of a recent picture of Adam I thought it would be interesting to re-visit him as a puppy. Here he is seen at six weeks of age. He's grown a bit since then!!

Under all round judge Mr E Engh from Norway, Nyassa Daka (Tor) owned by Jo & Andrew Letts and I am told very well handled by Jo was awarded the Dog CC, his first!! Tor is from my "D" Litter and still only 22 months old!!

More information on Tor & Max's Web Site

Strangely, despite the rain which is still pouring on the rest of us, Jo and Tor are driving home in a cocoon of permanent sunshine !! Once Again, Well Done!!

Tor followed this up with a further win at Paignton Championship Show on the following Tuesday. This win was his seventh 1st place and he's barely 22 months old!

 Judge Dorothy Grayson - Wood
On 15th July 2008 at the East of England Championship Show under breed specialist judge Mrs D Grayson - Wood, Nyassa Caluua at Kitoka (Caluua), who is owned and superbly handled by Sarah Nix took 1st place in Limit Bitch, the Bitch CC and BOB!
She then went on to represent the breed in the Hound Group where she was short listed but unfortunately not placed - maybe next time!
Caluua is litter sister to Nyassa Charlotte (Lottie) who is owned and handled by Monica Lundervold and who recently won her first CC. I am delighted by the performance of these two stunning girls who at two years of age are just coming into their own.
