26.06.2009 KariVery happy birthday greetings to Kari who was 12 years old yesterday, but someone forgot! We wont name names for the innocent and feeble minded have to be protected!! Just look at her, she doesn't look any older than last year does she!!!

I am really proud of this stunning young lady.

13.06.2009 TorOn 6th June 2009 at Southern Counties Canine Association Championship Show under breed specialist judge Ms G Lawless, Nyassa Daka at Torcharbe "Tor" took the Dog CC, his second!

Well done to owner handler Jo and sideline supporter Jo's husband Andy. I'm sure the third one can't be far away!!

13.06.2009 Caluua and SarahOn 3rd May 2009 at the Southern Rhodesian Ridgeback Association Championship Show under all round judge Mr N Bryce-Smith, Nyassa Caluua at Kitoko "Caluua" took the Bitch CC and Best in Show!! This was Caluua's third CC and thus makes her a Champion!!

I am so proud of Caluua and owner handler Sarah. They make a delightful duo who's partnership was sealed when Caluua was just seven weeks old and they picked each other!!

I am sure there are many more wins to come.

Nyassa Cruz "Cruz"
21st March 2006 - 19th April 2009
I am very sad to report that at just three years of age co-owner Julie Mounfield and I have lost our beautiful red boy Cruz. He was rushed to the vets on Sunday the 19th of April with bloat, after receiving treatment he was placed on a drip and sedated, unfortunately he had another bloat and had emergency surgery. It was at this stage we were informed that Cruz had full blown torsion and nothing could be done to save him, we let him go under anaesthetic.

CruzJulie and I are devastated, he was such a sweet gentle boy. Cruz lived with his dad Bruk and sister Lula, he will be very sadly missed by all his friends and doggy family. I’m just so glad I had him with me for a weekend prior to this awful event, a perfect gentleman. Goodnight sweet boy, from all at Nyassa
