The third week…

Again a lot has happened at the Mashona Madaha’s in the Casa Gomez.
The movements become more coordinated, they see more and all of them have teeth by now. It is an indescribable joy to watch them discover their small world. At Whitsunday the garden will be opened and the first visitors will come. Our interior has changed and has been enlarged. We have gotten a swing as well as a sleeping bag where several of us can sleep together. We gradually develop our own personalities but have a look yourself...

The Madaha’s in the second week

 

Our second week is over and a lot has happened. Some uf us started opening our eyes already on the 7th day. Our claws were trimmed 4 times and we also had to endure the first worm cure. Our big sister Aminali was also already allowed to sniff at us and we are very busy exploring what is happening outside of our litter box. We do not lack anything, we are getting spoilt and receive tons of love. 

 


The first week is behind us

 

Our fist week is over. We sleep, drink and crawl still deaf and blind through our litter box. Our Mama Dhakiya provides us with everything we need and throughout the day we get loads of cuddles. Life is beautiful, it can go on like this.

A very warm welcome to Mashona D-Litter

01.05 2020 and our happiness has a name:

         Madaha (graceful, dignified)

 

We are on cloud nine that our tiny lion hunters have finally arrived – even though they have chosen a stormy and rainy night for their birth.

We are delighted about 10 healthy and gorgeous little Ridgebacks – even if 4 of them seem to have been partying so much in the belly that they were lying slanted and had requested a “special transport” from the vet. Dear Leonie and dear Jacco I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for entrusting us with your magnificent Lewis for Dhakiya’s last litter. A big thank you to my helping birth angels on site, Zuzana, Kathrin, Norina, Laetitia and Kathleen. Also, to those who were on stand-by in the background day and night: thank you from all my heart.

This litter is something very special for me and all my expecting puppy parents. Thank you, beloved ones, for your trust in Dhakiya and Lewis and of course also in me.

 

We are now looking forward to a wonderful and intensive puppy time and would like to thank all of you, who were looking forward to this special litter of little Madaha’s with us.

 

 

Many thanks for your inquiry. Fortunately, we have already found wonderful puppy parents for our Madaha litter. I will be happy to consider your request for our future litter plans 2021 and look forward to hearing from you.

 

 


Pregnancy Impressions...

A very nice and quiet time lies behind us. We have been able to do a lot of things, like setting up the litter camp, washing terrycloth and stuffed animals, preparing for homeopathy, keeping in touch with our puppy parents and so on....
Zuzana our breeder-grandma was busy crocheting cotton collars and taking care of my Dhakiya and Aminali while I was still doing my last night services.
Now it is still 6 days and everybody is feverishly looking forward to it. The new puppy parents practice their patience, send delicious food packages, write cards, bring treats for the expecting mother and already now they are putting up a tent plan in my garden to see who will stay where overnight. With culinary catering, school lessons and home office ....
You are all wonderful, grateful and patient. I am looking forward to our Mashona trip together.
Now we have to wait and enjoy the peace and quiet, which will soon be over when our D-litter sees the light of day...

Joy is coming, our D-litter is on the way...

We are happy happy happy...
In this sad time, where fear, insecurity and uncertainty arise, also beautiful and very happy moments are coming along. Today's ultrasound of our Dhakiya has put a smile on our faces again. 
At the end of April, we can look forward to our big D-litter. We are happy that the connection between Dhakiya and Lewis worked out so well. 
I will report about Dhakiyas gestation period with pleasure. Thanks you all, who have supported us and are having their fingers crossed for us.
Leonie, I am so happy about our connection and about what is coming in the near future. Soon, we will sit together in the whelping box and will be happy about our puppies. 

Litter Planning Spring 2020

i proudly present

 
Life is like a box of chocolates 
 
Sometimes you have to change your mind for the good of our companions in order to reach a new goal.  Our new destination are the descendants of Taonga Dhakiya Buniwa of Mashona & Njia Jamaa Grand Lewis from the Netherlands. Lewis lives together with one male and 2 children in his family. He is a wonderful companion and inspires with his friendly and lively nature all who meet him. He is besides his beautiful appearance, healthy in every respect. From this very beautiful combination I hope for bone-strong, healthy and beautiful offspring in the standard. Thank you dear Leonie and Jacco for your trust in Dhakiya and me.

 


Honeymoon in the Netherlands

After a rapidly rise in progesterone levels, we set off to visit Lewis and his family in Zwolle. Our trip lasted 10 hours but we were all rewarded for that. Dhakiya and Lewis spent 3 intimate days and hours. Also we came at our expense. Besides wonderful walks, an ice sculpture exhibition and a visit to the old town of Zwolle we had a great time. Now we have to practice patience and cross our fingers if our mating will bear fruit. A big thank you goes to Leonie and her family, who welcomed and spoiled us most heartily. Thank you also dear Zuzana for your company and support. Our Dhakiya enjoys spending time with us. Thank you also to all those who are in the background and are as happy and excited as we are. In 4 weeks we will report again ....
