Three breathtaking days are behind us. Days in which culinary, hiking in a fascinating mountain scenery and cultivated friendship were not to be missed. Laetizia & Christophe, Mashona Ayira
& Merigals Rayya, the best hosts ever. On Friday evening we went to a private chocolate course in the confectionery Moreillon a craft that needs to be learned. With a lot of patience Laetizia
showed me what was waiting for her every day. A composition of sweet brown temptation. In the evening then wonderful Valais Raclette and afterwards off to bed and rested into the next day
My Valais Mashona family, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for these wonderful 3 days. It is always so nice to spend time with you, to laugh, talk shop and simply to feel the close connection between dog and man.
After our baby break we get a whiff of exhibition air again.
On Saturday Taonga Dhakiya Buniwa of Mashona was awarded V1 CAC and res. CACIB. What was very special was that Dhakiya and her daughter Mashona Amira Jendayi started in the same class and ran together. Amira prevailed and secured herself a V3. Well done!
Under the expert eyes of Thomas Kramer our 3 beauties posed in front of the camera. It was a pleasure to work with you, dear Thomas, and I hope to be able to go on photo tours with you more often.

What a fantastic male. Born in the A litter in my Kennel. He has become a confident and handsome male. Thank you Celine, you have made of him what he is now. We look forward to the September 2018 where we try with Ayo the next step into breeding program
Two years ago today you all gave me a very happy moment in my life. In these two years, you have grown into unique personalities and I don't want to miss any of you treasures. Celebrate, let yourself be spoiled and step on it and have fun today. You earned it. I think of each one of you today and send you a big kiss......
I am overjoyed and welcome our Mashona Zubayda B-litter!
I am overjoyed and more than thankful!
What I have long suspected has now been confirmed. The intimate and strong connection between Dhakiya and Baka is bearing fruit. We can all hope for a healthy and beautiful litter who will see the light of day around the 16th of January 2018.
A good read, exciting, interesting and funny .......
The second meeting of the offspring was planned and again we had the pleasure to travel to Central Switzerland. Alexandra & Thomas with Akello outdid themselves once again that our meeting remains unforgettable. After a stormy greeting of 4 and 2 legs, we first strengthened ourselves with a rich breakfast. We all didn't know what to expect. Then we went to the canton of Uri to a beautiful place by the lake, nature reserve and lots of wind, storm and rain. A hardening test for humans and animals. After the walk we had a wonderful break and were served deliciously and princely with game dishes and other dishes from the canton of Uri. We chatted and talked and our four-legged friends enjoyed being together. Just wonderfully, the bond and friendship of the Mashona's. We closed the day with coffee and cake. It was a beautiful day, but due to the weather conditions it also brought us to our limits. Central Switzerland we will be back again.......
I am overjoyed and very proud to be able to report further x-ray results of my offspring:
With joy I may proclaim that the health check of Mashona Aminali Jendayi was all negative, i.e. HD A bds, OCD & ED free and LSG is not found. We are glad and happy! Further results from other Mashona offspring will follow shortly.
What an exhibition .... it could not be more astonishing. The RR were judged by a Russian general judge. The show was run by the RRCD. Two Mashona brothers were in the intermediate class at the start, the following results were achieved:
Mashona Armani Jendayi got a Sg
Mashona Adebayo Jendayi secured the V2 res. CAC - in a heavily occupied class.
Melanie and Aminali made it super and received a "g" from the expert judge and Dhakiya was rated with an "sg".
It was nice and we will continue but will also forget this exhibition very quickly.
Joy and sadness lie very close together. Today on a sunny day, heaven has got a new luminous star. I mourn with my friends Melanie and Bernd, who lost their faithful friend Kazunga Ajani at the age of 13 years and 5 months.
God speed, Ajani
IHA Kreuzlingen and my breeder heart beats proud!!

Happy birthday my faithful soul!
4 years ago, you were warmly welcomed with your 15 brothers and sisters in Baar in Kennel Taonga. Even then we knew that you all, but especially you, for me, something very special. And this has remained so to this day. You greet me in the morning with a joy that
makes my heart rise. Along with Usoni, you lead our pack with absolute security
and tranquility. I can rely on you in every living situation. You gave me my
dream of own breeding and show me every day how much you love me.
Dhakiya for me, you are everything and everything I will do for you to make
your life in our fantastic pack every day happier.
Happy Birthday my Dhakiya!
On Sunday morning, I went to Valais with Marondera Chidima, Taonga Dhakiya and Mashona Aminali.
In Sierre we were stormed by our offspring Mashona Ayira, Merigals Rayya and Christoph & Laetizia. On the program today: Col du Sanetsch, a beautiful glacier, in a very special rock landscape. White smooth rocks embedded in rich green. A beautiful floral fauna and always again small lakes with cristal clear water. The dogs could run and cool down again and again in-between.
The whole whistle of ever-returning whistles of the many marmots. We were lucky, one showed up and very quickly again disappeared.
On Monday morning, we went to Lac du Zeuzier, a more fascinating turquoise lake, beautiful flowers, steep mountains and to my suffering: a swing bridge! It took me a lot of courage to cross.
Tired but with my heart full of wonderful experiences I would like to thank you, not only that my little Ayira got the best of a home but also for your hospitality, Laetizia & Christophe, it was fascinating and very nice to spend time with you.

A wonderful and successful time is behind us. Together with Dhakiya and Aminali, I set out to visit my friends Mel and Bernd. We spent a wonderful time together, not to forget the exhibition in Neunkirchen with 4 Mashona's to the start.
A catastrophically organized exhibition with police and fire brigade and a lot of inconvenience took place on Whitsunday. Nevertheless, the young Mashona's gave everything.

Despite all the fuss around the exhibition, we enjoyed the time together very much. Our cohesion was once again very clearly felt and heard when we cheered our youngest. Dear acquaintances and friends may not be missing.
Thank you very much for your congratulations, which I also very gladly give back. It was a very emotional and beautiful show weekend.
My special thanks go to Anja Kiesewetter, who flies from victory to victory with my little Amira and has now made her a youth champion. Celine Stefanie, who shows my little Mister Blue - Adebayo - skillfully and if it goes on like this, they become a top team.
My Melanie and Aminali gave everything and their intimate connection was not to be overlooked. Amana, my white quiet beauty, showed up very nicely with Pia, and will also convince the one or the other judge.
Thank you all.....
Mashona Amana Jendayi has been put in the right light precisely and proffesionell.
Dear Pia, thank you very much for the wonderful studio recordings from our Amana. The photographer surpassed me and I am more than happy about the result.
.. and the Mashona's followed the call! A beautiful young dog meeting is behind us.
Akello's owners invited us all to Central Switzerland. Except for Amira and Armani
and Papa Baka, we were fully present. We spent a wonderful day, hiked to 1580 m
altitude and enjoyed the imposing snow-capped mountain chain of the Swiss Alps.
The dogs had a lot of fun and we adults were very happy to exchange. It cries for
more and we will organize such a harmonious meeting again in the near future.
I am very proud of this very special litter. Thank you all - you are top!
Some of my little Mashona's could be photographed. Here is a little insight as they have evolved over time. I am more than happy. Please check out one and each of them and visit "Breeding". There you can find more pictures.
Breeding is also health and that should be the top priority for every breeder.
I had Dhakiya genetically investigated, and I am pleased to announce that she is in good health, as well as our future mate Baka Baraka Kavango River. So Juliane and I are looking forward to our next litter with joy, which is Mother Nature will be kind enought, takes place in the beginning of 2018. The results of the probes can be found under Dhakiya and Baka www.baka-baraka.de
What would please a breeder's heart more than to show his own offspring at home and abroad?. Some Mashonas were successful and I am very proud of what they have achieved in such a young age. Please check the results on each of my Puppys.
One can hardly believe it but the little Mashona's celebrating their first birthday today!
I so gladly remember it as if it were yesterday. My Dhakiya made me the present and gave life to 8 little wonders on February 15, 2016. Each of them has developed into a strong and beautiful personality.
Today, one year has passed and I can say that we were more than right with our decision to mate Baka and Dhakiya. Akia, Amira, Aminali, Amana, Adebayo, Ayira, Akello and Armani - I wish you from the bottom of my heart a very happy birthday, be pampered and celebrated and carry on making your humans and myself happy.
