Well done to owner handler Jo and sideline supporter Jo's
husband Andy. I'm sure the third one can't be far away!!
3rd May 2009 at the Southern Rhodesian Ridgeback Association Championship
Show under all round judge Mr N Bryce-Smith, Nyassa Caluua at Kitoko "Caluua"
took the Bitch CC and Best in Show!! This was Caluua's third CC and thus
makes her a Champion!!
I am so proud of Caluua and owner handler Sarah. They make a delightful duo
who's partnership was sealed when Caluua was just seven weeks old and they
picked each other!!
I am sure there are many more wins to come.
I am very sad to report that at just three years of age
co-owner Julie Mounfield and I have lost our beautiful red boy Cruz. He was
rushed to the vets on Sunday the 19th of April with bloat, after receiving
treatment he was placed on a drip and sedated, unfortunately he had another
bloat and had emergency surgery. It was at this stage we were informed that
Cruz had full blown torsion and nothing could be done to save him, we let
him go under anaesthetic.

and I are devastated, he was such a sweet gentle boy. Cruz lived with his
dad Bruk and sister Lula, he will be very sadly missed by all his friends
and doggy family. I’m just so glad I had him with me for a weekend prior to
this awful event, a perfect gentleman. Goodnight sweet boy, from all at
