Very excited to announce the arrival of Guna and Gigi babies, born yesterday 20th July 2022!
After chewing all our nails down she finally decided to start just after lunch,
five hours later she had 10 pups, 6 girls and 4 boys!
Unfortunately one of the girls was born with her stomach outside and was pts, RIP little girl!

So we have 5 girls, 4 boys all have ridges (yellow girl has only part of a ridge)
no kink tails and will continue to check for DS!
They are gorgeous babies and we can’t wait to watch them mature,
well done to Stephen and Shayne for looking after them all so well! πŸ™‚

Many thanks again to Wendy for allowing us to use her special boy πŸ™‚

This litter is the result of a TCI with 14 yr old frozen semen at
Queensland Veterinary Specialists at Stafford Qld!
Check out more at their litter page!

Some lovely pics of our dogs taken by Patrik Berger at the
Qld Rhodesian Ridgeback Specialty πŸ™‚
Judge was Ms Sue Cameron-Codognotto (VIC)

Larnie – Riginal Lady Writer
(Multi Ch Kitoko Auksinis Feniksas (Lithuania) X Gr Ch Almazart Captive Fyre)
won Best Footed in Show and placed 2nd in Junior bitch πŸ™‚

Judges critique: “Good breed type albeit a stronger styled bitch. She is a little heavier
throughout the neck, shoulders, and forechest than I prefer,
impacting her elegance somewhat, although she does have some
lovely breed qualities. Lovely breed typical head with a good dark
round eye. Good bone going into beautiful tight feet. She was not as
clean out and back as ideal but was fluid in profile on the move. She
has a lot of development yet to come as she’s only 11 months of age
so her top-line should improve with time.”

Elvis – Riginal Calling Elvis
(Multi Ch Kitoko Auksinis Feniksas (Lithuania) X Gr Ch Almazart Captive Fyre)
was 2nd in Junior Dog πŸ™‚

Judges critique: “This 11-months old male is a little stronger than I prefer but still retains
some elegance. His head is strong, masculine, with good ear-set, planes,
a beautiful correct eye, but has some loose skin tending to be a bit jowly.
In outline not as balanced as the first placed dog and he could benefit
from more fill in front and a better return of upper arm. He has good
depth of chest and is well ribbed back, with lovely hindquarter
angulation. Good ridge. On move he was not as fluid as the first placed
dog and his top-line was a little high in rear which should improve with
time and maturity.”

Western – Riginal Once Upon A Time In The West
(Multi Ch Kitoko Auksinis Feniksas (Lithuania) X Gr Ch Almazart Captive Fyre)
was 3rd in Puppy Bitch πŸ™‚

Judges critique: “This young bitch is also of good breed type, albeit she is a little
stronger than I prefer but I can still appreciate her qualities. Strong
head, but with good eye, ear-set, head plane ratios and muzzle
strength. Strong bone and good feet. She is not as well constructed
as those ahead of her in the placings and could do with more fill in
front and a little more prosternum. She is at that awkward growth
stage where her top-line was not her forte standing nor on the
move, but should improve with time. She wasn’t as clean moving as
those ahead of her.”

Pirate – Riginal Pirate Smile
(Sup Ch Nambala Acopie ET (Imp New Zealand) X Gr Ch Almazart Captive Fyre)
was 3rd in Intermediate Bitch πŸ™‚

Judges critique: “I was drawn to this red wheaten bitch who was so handsome and
upstanding! On the stack she was beautiful displaying excellent
breed type. Beautiful breed typical head and a lovely dark eye, good
length of neck flowing into lovely shoulders. Well balanced fore and
after, with good bone, ideally she could benefit from a little more
depth of chest and a better croup. On the move her top-line was a
little soft and she wasn’t as clean out and back as those placegetters
ahead of her. She covered the ground well in an effortless manner,
although she held her tail a little higher than ideal. Once more, this
was another quality bitch.”

Flare – MBISS Gr Ch Almazart Captive Fyre
(Gr Ch Neut Ch Rex Ventors Rare Edition ET (Imp Sweden) X Ch Almazart Bright Shadow)
was 2nd in Open Bitch at almost 7 yrs of age πŸ™‚

Judges critique: “Another beautiful bitch of excellent breed type. Her head is pleasing
just a little heavier than I prefer in my bitches but does maintain
some femininity. She is soundly built with good balance fore and
after, balanced bone leading into good feet. She also exhibits good
prosternum, fill, depth of chest and is well ribbed back. On the
move she covered the ground well with good reach and drive whilst
maintaining her good top-line, she was just not quite as clean out
and back as the bitch placed first. Good ridge. Another quality
mature bitch who could also win on any given day.”
