Now the time has come, 10 special weeks are behind us. A challenge to prepare 12 small lively lion hunters for life.
To have the right hand in choosing the best puppy parents and to find out who suits whom.
An intense work that has often brought me to my limits. What would I have been without my friends who unconditionally wore me during this time. Mel, Arletta, Zuzana, Juli, Yvonna and Patricia, Miriam, Thomas, Nicole, Anja and Ruth .... Thank you with all my heart for your precious time and your helping hands. I can look back on a beautiful, healthy and very lively litter that could not have been better. 12 small wonders arose from a fantastic mating of my Dhakiya and Baka. Thank you Juli and Manuel for your exceptional male which will always be something special for me and has secured a great place in my heart. I am already looking forward to report about my 12 little Zubayda's ...
Today was the day when our puppies were inspected by the RRCS under the eyes of Yvonne Schönholzer's, the Head of the Breeding Board.
The assessment went off without a hitch. The whole litter was described as beautiful, balanced and pure. Our little ones presented themselves very confident and calm, were interested in everything and also the cuddling with the lady of the club was not missed out. I am happy, proud and grateful.
Saint Peter had no mercy and so it rained easily again and again. But that didn't impress our puppies. As brave as little lions are, they all snuggled up to Laura in the car and we drove off. Everyone was curious and mastered everything with flying colors. On a large meadow they were allowed to explore freedom for the first time all by themselves. They were impressed and cautious. And afterwards also done by the many impressions. We adults let the day end comfortably. Thanks to all those who helped out. I look forward to further beautiful moments with you.
Our 12 Mashona's Zubayda's have been medically checked and found to be healthy. All males have their masculinity, all dentures are fine and everything else is fine. The team of the practice Godenzi, who gave everything to bring our 12 treasures into life on the night of birth, were delighted to see our 12 little ones so healthy and beautiful again. With a cosy aperitif we let the evening end. Dogs like humans were happy and grateful.
Much has happened again, and yes, something is going on here. The weather has improved and we can go outside much more. The whole garden, our adventure playground is at our disposal. We run, tussle, discover and fight. And today even our Pierot Godenzi and his team were with us. Of course we showed our best side but then he jabbed and chipped us and then we really got out of the bush. They had their joy. Soon, nothing will stand in the way of our great journey. We will continue to report...
... and we 12 Mashona's were there. Our Thomas was here with lamps, canvas, umbrella and a lot of photo-technical stuff.
Sitting still and making an even nicer face than we already have anyway was quite difficult for us. We'd rather go out at minus temperatures and play with Mommy. You can be curious about the result ....
Today we humans had to listen carefully and be attentive. Anja the grandmother of our Mashona's taught us everything about nutrition with Reico, Anabel told us something about heat, false pregnancy and castration and Silvia made sure at the end that our human friends bought beautiful things for us.....
What a surprise! Our great-great-grandmother Brigitte from the Kennel Nahimana and Susanne visited us. Not only did they admire us, we were also fascinated by the things they brought with them. Bells that can be very loud, a floorboard on which we can let our musical vein flow and a swinging cuddle bag to relax. The day was beautiful and we all say thank you and nice you were there.......
Again a few days have passed, but they have brought us a little bit further in the development of our puppies.
We grow and thrive, growling and fighting and becoming more beautiful every day. The development of individual characters is already emerging. While the girls briskly and vehemently storm the milk bar, the males take it rather relaxed. In the whole hustle and bustle Dhakiya is a very patient and loving mother ....
What's the latest from the litterbox of happiness???
Our 12 little Ridgies are already developing into little personalities. The puppies are already barking, growling and protesting loudly if it doesn't go fast enough. And as always, Dhakiya watches over her puppy flock very calmly and at ease.
As to the weight, the kilogram limit has been broken and the leader with almost 1300 grams is our biggest pup, Mr. Brown. With blinking, the ladies were at the front. Miss White was in a hurry to look at where she is now. All the others will follow in the next few days.
Yesterday, they were dewormed, and they must endure this too to stand up to life strongly and resistant.
The 12 small miracles touch my heart every time I look at them, so that sleepless nights, mountains of laundry and endless eyebags-rings be soon forgotten ....
A few days have passed and we had to settle in first.
Zubayda is Swahili (spoken in East Africa, Kenya, Tanzania) and means "the best of all" and these are the 12 little Ridgies!
We arrived on the third day after birth. Everyone is doing well and Dhakiya just makes her job as a mother exemplary, cleans and nurses the puppies, sleeps and with all the wonderful impressions, a tear of emotion at times is shed. Such a litter is a gift!
Yet a much bigger gift is to have such valuable friends, interested and patient puppy parents and, most importantly, a stud dog owner who is always there when you need her.
"Thank you" I would like to say to my helper team at birth, namely Juliane, Melanie, Zuzana, Arletta - you were great!! My mom, who spoiled us with treats. Albi, who is currently taking care of Chidima. Thomas and Nicole, who provided with patisserie for sugary recovery. Pia, who let flowers speak and my Patricia, who helps me with the translations.
This is how it works, that it will be an unforgettable time. But now I let pictures speak for themselves…
