My dream will come true! For Dhakiya's last litter I am happy and gratefully report that I have found my Mr. Right. A male dog that I have been following for a long time and that
fascinates me again and again. A wonderful runner, fantastic family dog and very successful show dog. He not only captivates with his perfect mass corresponding to the standard, but also his
nature and character are impeccable.
From this combination of two wonderful breed representatives I promise myself healthy, character-strong and harmoniously in the standart standing
Rhodesian Ridgebacks with a more than interesting pedigree.
If you are interested in this promising mating please contact us as soon as possible by using the contact form on this website. I like to get to know my future puppy parents very much in advance.
Mashona Adebayo Jendayi
Finally our big guy visited his kennel again. Ayo, as he is affectionately called by his Celine, has developed into a strong, beautiful and sovereign male. Despite the sad December weather I
could still catch a few beautiful moments of Ayo.....
Hodari van de Eyssel Hoeve
A visit that had long been due has become a reality. Hodari, born on 25.06.2008 from the mating of Atiya and my Bukuru, from Belgian kennel van de Eyssel Hoeve. A top fit senior who is in a
fantastic condition thanks to Kerstin's care. My heart opened to see what joy he had when he saw my girls and me. We had a wonderful day. Thanks Kerstin for your hospitality and that you look so
good after our boy. Our next visit is planned for spring....
The Sky has a new star......
I mourn with Zuzana and Rolf for our wonderful Aliya, 13 1/2 years you were allowed to grow old and you were allowed to go in the company of us all. Thanks, you have given me Dhakiya as a
foundation for my breeding and were also for your grandchildren and great-grandchildren a true RR model.
Aliya was 34 times mother, 54 times grandmother and 31 times great grandmother.
Wonderful and no trouble-shy mother, cheerful until old age, brave, unconditionally faithful and loving, tolerant, indulgent and simply an extraordinary dog who loved everyone and everything and
was loved by everyone. A proud, beautiful and worthy representative of the breed.
On the 4th November your way was over here on earth. We are grateful and yet very sad. Someday we will see again. Aliya we miss you!
A meeting of the special kind....
A very nice day lies behind us and some of our RR still have to process all this.
Marta from CZ is here and I had THE idea! A small offspring meeting of her male MCH Bomani Irsania with his offspring from the kennels Taonga/Vumbuo/ Mashona and Jade& Bomani.
There were 35 RR and 50 persons. Very special to see was how our Aliya 13 1/2 years and Brook (Bomanis brother, 9 years of age) moved between all, the youngest 8 months old. After a great
walk, knowing that the dogs could run free, we ended the day with a nice lunch. Many thanks to everybody, for Marta and some others the day will remain unforgettable.
In the last weeks I was allowed to visit some Mashona offspring from different litters. They are not only beautiful but also impeccable in nature and character. See for yourself

Health report from the Mashona Kennel
Mashona Amana Jendayi, our bitch from the A-litter, epitome of power, friendliness and sovereignty and daughter of my Dhakiya, is a bitch that only everyone can wish for and accompanies Pia on
daily rides, to her doctor's office and is always at Pia's side. Amana was also x-rayed and I can proudly report that she too - like her other 4 siblings - can show excellent results:

I am grateful and very happy to have such healthy offspring. Thank you Pia for doing everything for the health of Amana.
Säntis 2502m - the mountain calls
Respect and reverence for nature. A unique natural spectacle of sun, clouds and wind offered itself to us on a wonderful Sunday. I was allowed to redeem my birthday voucher for brunch at 2502
meters above sea level. Once without our red friends, but with my godchild in lofty heights. It was a culinary highlight, underlined with a breathtaking view and accompanied by wonderful friends.
See for yourself and feel the power of the mountains.....

Puppy meeting of the Mashona Injabulo
On August 10th we met 13 puppies and 5 adult dogs for our C litter meeting. It was a wonderful and eventful day. They were all there. Also our great-grandmother Aliya with 13 years and 4 months,
aunt Bashira and Scubi were not missing on our day. All the little Injabulo's have become strong and beautiful personalities. I am very proud of you and thankful, they have the best
homes with you. Many thanks to everyone who made this day so special. I have no words for your generous gifts and I can only say thank you from the bottom of my heart. Merci to Sarah, Albi,

Farewell & New beginning under C Litter
Mashona Injabulo 15.März 2019
Tested, found to be healthy and beautiful and released into the wide world.....
On the 16th of May we all had to undergo the eagle eyes of our breed warden and an apprentice of the RRCS. Every single one of the little Injabulo's showed himself calm, safe and curious to
the two ladies. Our result is impressive. I am very satisfied and grateful with my 13 puppies, of which 3/2 are without ridge and 8 are correct according to the standard. The puppies are
open in nature, curious, lively and hardly anyone can resist when seeing them. An intense time is coming to an end. From now on they leave our kennel and enjoy their new human friends. I
would like to thank my environment, my valuable friends who have accompanied me through this intensive time. I am very grateful and appreciate the time I was able to spend with each and every
one of you. I wish each of my puppies a healthy, exciting and wonderful life and I am happy when I hear from you from time to time.
Finally we got pictures of the rattle gang from Känerkinden. Inka does an exemplary job and cares touchingly for her puppies. We have to wait a little longer until we can marvel at them live. Now
we let pictures speak.....
Mashona Adebayo Jendayi and his first offspring
Life is taken and life is born, and so we can enjoy the birth of 3 males and 8 females with Thea Walter from Ashima's Kennel. A little bitch unfortunately didn't make it and is now on her way
to her ancestors.
We are very proud of our Ayo and Inka for such a beautiful and healthy litter of little lion hunters. They are the first Mashona grandchildren here in Switzerland and soon there will be more in
Germany and here in Altdorf.
We are already looking forward to the visit in Känerkinden to experience the jaunty lot live. If you are interested in a puppy, please contact the kennel directly at www.ashima.ch
My world stands still
15th January 2011 - 17th February 2019
My soul dog, you suddenly and unexpectedly set off on your last journey on a beautiful day. I could only be there for you, stroking you, kissing you and thanking you for all the beautiful
moments and years you have been at my side.
As the last daughter of Bukuru, you were unique for me. Your empathetic nature, your unconditional love and your gentle nature had only one name, Chidima. Today, suddenly and unexpectedly,
your journey ended here. I would do everything I could to keep you by my side.
I thank you for your time, your love and that I could go a part of your way with you. The only consolation I have left is we'll see each other again sometime.
Chidima I've loved you more than anything in the world. Thank you for everything
15.02.2016 Happy Birthday my Mashona Jendayi A-litter...
made me the happiest person in the world. My A-litter was born 3 years ago, a litter of healthy, strong and beautiful RR.
You got the best human friends, no one wants to miss you anymore!
You, Adebayo will soon become a father, our Amira will soon become a mother and my Aminali is for me the most beautiful and cuddliest pregnant bitch.
But also the others experience exciting and adventurous moments. I'm so happy there's you guys and say thank you to my Dhakiya and our Baka from the bottom of my heart for this extraordinary
Let yourself be pampered and enjoy the day. I think of each and every one of you.....
Aminali and her sweet secret.....
If I have to describe a book with seven seals, only the name Aminali comes to mind.
As well as I know my youngest, but her secret has been well guarded (hatched).
Still very moved, happy and grateful, I may inform you today that we are expecting our C litter around March 16th. Dhakiya will be grandma and I breed with my own offspring, of which I am
more than proud.
I am happy to be able to report here on my homepage about my future C-litter.
Litter Plan Spring 2019
more Information under C Litter
We were on our honeymoon in the Cold but wonderful East.....
Aminali has decided at the end of 2018, she ends the old year excitingly. So in the new year we made our way to our chosen Grand Cortege Maximus Gloriam Dei. We spent exciting, comfortable and
days practicing patience.
Now we hope and wish, after two exciting matings, that this pairing will bear fruit and that we will be able to enjoy healthy and beautiful breed representatives in the middle of
March. Thank you Silke for your trust in Aminali and in our kennel.

Happy birthday my Marondera Chidima Abiola of Mashona
My Chidi darling, today is your day, 8 wonderful years you are already at my side. You bribe everyone with your peace, sovereignty and solidarity. I love you for your gentle nature and your
Chidima, I celebrate today with you your special birthday and wish us both more beautiful years.
Happy Birthday my 12 Mashona Zubayda
