DECEMBER 2012

A YEAR IN REVIEW

2012 has been a year like riding a roller coaster.

On a positive note 3 new Champions for HuntingRidge
with Denise's boy "Copper" Ch HuntingRidge On Safari in Kenya in WA
Maasai: Ch HuntingRidge From the Heartland and Ashlan Ch/Neut Ch HuntingRidge Blazing Star.

In QLD, Peter's girl "Anza" Ch HuntingRidge Spirit of Katana ET FC LCM became
Australia's first RR Lure Coursing of Merit Champion.

With the DOL pointscore, HuntingRidge finished at #8 top Breeder
with the aid of Copper, Ashlan and Maasai along with Hunter & Ziva
doing well at group level gaining etc points.
3 Huntingridge: Maasai, Ziva and Hunter finished in the top 20 for the All Breeds competition a great
accomplishment owing to the fact that Ziva and Hunter are shown very sparingly and Maasai occasionally.
Although shown on a very limited basis, young Jaz is showing some promise
with multiple groups and an in show award.

Congratulations to Karen's homebred boy Griffin (Dougal and Rani son) who finished his title this year
taking Dog Challenge at the Victorian Specialty and
in November - Best in Show at the Victorian Hound Club with a huge entry of 330.

On a sad note the Dwyer Family lost their 5 month old girl "Cherry" in a tragic accident.
I had to say goodbye to my beautiful old girl "Nikkita" following a brief illness.
Her Litter sister Loki owned by Angela also crossed to Rainbow Bridge this year.
In FNQ the Vandine's farewelled their girl Rosie.
In November more tragic news with the loss of the Klepzig's sweet girl Ziva at 18months old.

There was 1 litter at HuntingRidge this year with Brandy & Dougal producing a beautiful litter of 12 puppies.

Dougal has been a busy boy this year producing 5 litters with very little problems
or ridge faults, more importantly wonderful temperaments.
Terjon (2 litters), Veldthund and Nova Frexio.
Congratulations to Peter in QLD with Anza and Denise in WA with Copper on their respective litters.

I had 2 wonderful judging appointments this year: the South Australian Hound Club
with a lovely entry and a opportunity to judge many quality hounds.
I had the great honour to judge the Canadian Ridgeback National in August.
There were many fine examples of the breed in both the youngsters and adults.
The veterans were difficult to judge because they were all simply outstanding!

The World Congress in Canada was very enjoyable and a great experience.
It was a wonderful opportunity catching up with friends
and meeting new RR enthusiasts from across the globe.

Many thanks to my extended HuntingRidge family who keep me updated and forward photos
from Australia and overseas of their special companions.
Your news is always appreciated.
I also take a great interest in not only direct progeny but the grandkids etc as well.

A huge thank you to all the HuntingRidge owners for finding that special place in your hearts
and providing wonderful caring homes.

Welcome to the world 12 beautiful Terjon babies sired by my boy "Dougal"
Ch HuntingRidge Do U Get A Lion. Kya whelped on Christmas Eve.
Congratulations Glenda and Robert sounds like a super litter also blessed with some little livernoses : ))

AUGUST 2012

Showing for my dogs was very light this month due to my 5 week adventure in Canada.

Whilst in Canada I attended the Rhodesian Ridgeback World Congress held in Toronto.
There were some very interesting topics delivered in particular the debate of early spaying,
with some vets against this practice preferring that it is in the dogs best interest
to reach almost their full growth before desexing.

Congratulations to the organisers and committee of the RR World Congress.
It was a very social event and it was great opportunity to meet many Ridgeback breeders and enthusiasts
from various parts of the world.

One of the highlights of my trip was the invitation and honor to judge the Canadian National Champ Show
on the 25.8.12 with a very pleasing entry of 110.
It was a pleasure to judge so many fine quality Ridgebacks and both the Veteran classes were amazing.
There were also several very promising youngsters presented.
I awarded Best In Show to CH Ridgeville's Jamala Brea.

(HuntingRidge Safari Star) 14.7.00 - 17.1.2012

Angela's message relayed a wonderful life that Loki experienced.

As a breeder, I find it difficult to hand puppies over initially but the love and joy
that each one brings to their new owners makes it all so worthwhile.

It is heartbreaking to say goodbye and release them to Rainbow Bridge,
leaving footprints planted on your heart.
I trust those many fond and happy memories help you through the difficult days.
