Whoo Hoo..excited again...
We also had three dogs place 1st in the Open Stakes: Cheetah, Trixie, Beatrice.

CHIC CH Kushinda Red Alvira just had 9 pups

We are excited onece again..

Kushinda's Beatrice Just took Best in Field at the RRCUS Nationa Specialty 2009


And we are excited....
This is Beatrice...Her dam is the most wonderful Kushinda's "Utterly" soon to be ROM (Register of Merit) and her sire is my Kimani-Kushinda Cutting Edge "Cheetah" (soon to be CH)
She is a great little dog, and will be shown in the conformation ring this year as she seeks her Dual Championship. Like most ridgebacks, she has a story to tell. And as always with those that have a story their destination is alway reached as hers was on the lure coursing field today at Lansing MI. Her BIF run was thrilling, she stayed true on the bag, following it up the hill, around and passing everyone one in her sights three times...A spectacular run for this little girl, and we are so pleased that the judges saw and scored her accordingly..Thanks to all..The Kushinda Crew....Beatrice our BIF National RRCUS Specialty 2009 Winner..More pic to follow.

An unusual crew? Just keeping you on your toes..no ridgeback here.


I did a photo shoot on the river yesterday and found this to be very unusual to see these critters all together in one place. The beautiful Mallard ducks, a squirrel, starlings and a crow. What was the common denominator? Click on the picture to enlarge and you will see the answer..

Lure Coursing and Judging this weekend..


Another great weekend for the advancement or our Rhodesian Ridgebacks. Kammi is judging a match over Pittsburg PA way, not RR some other hound breed...they will be coming back to central PA tonight and then it is off to the Oatlands Plantation in VA for lure coursing tomorrow. Several will be competiting for their JC titles...How exciting is that...This would be the Cheewedells as we so fondly call them...I will not be wearing a mask as I think the wind will blow all the H1N1 virus away.
I am pursuing some questions I have been asked on getting your bitch spayed and problems with the Dr. will try ot follow up with you later on this..I can tell you that it is advisable to write down on the calendar when you bitch comes into season. This information is valuable when wanting to spay and when running the Thyroid test...
