WHY DID WE MATED FIN AND JENNY?
Father: J. CH. HR. Bawabu Gamba Galadima – Finn
In Finn we found the qualities we were looking for Jenny – very well balanced dog, with elegance and soundness in movement. What makes us really happy is his calm nature, sweet personality and healthy and balanced construction.
He became Croatian young champion so quickly and with such ease that we expect many more successes.
Grandfather: C.I.B. NORD CH, SE CH, NO CH, DK CH, FI CH, VDH CH, GB CH, KBHW-98, NORDW-99, KBHW-00 Aakemba King Astor Gi´Fumo CV – Astor
Of course, we must not forget Finn’s father, widely known Aakemba King Astor Gi’Fumo who had enormous success in the show rings and won many titles. Astor was one of the best show dogs in Sweden and first foreign Ridgeback to become British Champion. He was a dog that you couldn’t help loving. Astor was a true gentleman “right out to the tip of his paws” – says his owner Margareta Lantz. He produced high quality offsprings and lived a long and healthy life. He has marked one whole period in the history of the Ridgeback world. Finn’s mother Chanda has been inseminated with the last dose of Astor’s frozen semen.
We also have one old story from our life connected to him. In 2002 we watched the World Dog Show in Amsterdam and came back with lots of photos that we later looked at together. Lana, my daughter, took one of Astor’s photographs and glued it above her desk. When we asked her why she chose him, she said, did not you notice that the head was the same as that one the key rings? Now I can finally see the entire dog. That photo is gone for such a long time since than, as did Astor, but he sneaked into our lives again.
Grandmother: C.I.B. FI CH, SE CH, EE CH, EE JCH Bawabu Changuliwa Chaga
His mother Chanda is in perfect balance, both physically and mentally. „Chanda has a very balanced and healthy conformation and she moves like a dream with a long streight forward balanced stride“, wrote Satu and she was completelly right. Chanda is a energetic and a happy bitch whom wants to take part in everything. She is also an outstanding show dog and an equally outstanding brood bitch.
Mother: J. CH. HR, CH. HR Jumoke Ayaba – Jenny
She is always exhibiting an easy-going attitude, obedient behavior, friendly approach and constant tail wag. She knows exactly what she wants, and what she is asked to do. Everything on her body is harmoniously flawless.
Beautiful head, gorgeous expression, perfectly built body with excellent angulation and strong bones – everything on her is harmoniously flawless.
She was not present in many exhibitions, but in almost every appearance she has won and achieved many titles and the championships came with it in a blink of an eye. Jenny is pure gold. Not only because of her color but because of her heart as well.
Grandfather: C.I.B. VDH CH, DE CH, AT CH, WW-17 CH Wa Kishujaa Dakari – Goldi
Dakari has an impressive pedigree, with many great dogs behind him and all of these dogs we’ve had a chance to meet and get to know. We bred his grandfather Notho – who was especially close to our hearts.
He is stunning, mentally as well as physical. His body is perfectly shaped with excellent front and back angulation. Front chest is strong and full. He has dark eyes and strong head that corresponding to his body. The movement is smooth and powerful. Everyone who came into contact with him feels the same way – cool and confident gentleman, delicate and gentle in the same time.
Dakari likes to be shown and to this day I have even forgotten how many BOB, BOS, group placements and club winner he managed to win. His most important success is winning the World Dog Show in Leipzig from veteran class.
Grandmother: CH HR, ME, BG, MK, MD, INT CH Chukwuemeka (Gita) Ayaba
Chukwuemeka Gita Ayaba, Jenny’s mother come from our amazing C litter. Together with her brother CH HR, ME, RS, BG, MK, MD, AT, INT CH multi best in show winner Chivas Ayaba she conquered show rings all over Europe thanks to perfect construction, self-confidence and beautiful expression.
Do you believe in love at first sight? We do. We have fallen in love on first sight and Gita fell in love at first sniff. And yes – she is queen of the universe but loyal, attentive, and unreserved in her affection. Thanks to her cleverness, often manages to get a little more. She had a nice head expression, well defined stop and dark eyes. Everything on her was in perfect balance, and she movd like a dream.
Litter in which she was born – C- litter – was absolutely gorgeous, extraordinary dogs with perfect body structure and self confidence.
There were 12 puppies born, two in a honeylike color, like Jenny, Gita and Chande, others have a dark mask and somewhere a dark hair that becomes reddish. Two are without ridge, one has one crown. The other nine pups are correct. No DS or kinked tails. (We lost two correct puppies during long-term birth.)
