Gone but will never be forgotten our beautiful, big and gentle Elvis - Kiromol It's Now or Never 18.2.2004 - 4.8.2015

JULY 2015

17th July - The oldest and wisest member of our pack left us today - Kiromol Kizazi, our beautiful little Lulu, aged 15 1/4.  She was a little warrior right to the very end, was never ill in her life and kept the youngsters in line with just a look.  Lulu was the sweetest Ridgeback and life will not be the same without her, it feels like she's been with us forever.  God Bless you dear Lulu 9.5.200 - 17.7.2015

15th December Ladies Kennel Association - Judge Lyn Hewson

LKA always attracts huge puppy classes, and today was no exception. Kendi moved up from Minor Puppy Bitch to Puppy Bitch at this show as she has now hit 9 months old. There were 14 entries in her class, with 12 actually present. Kendi won 1st place.  

NOVEMBER 2013

19th & 21st November - KENDI RECEIVES BOTH HER STUD BOOK NUMBER CERTIFICATE AND HER JUNIOR WARRANT CERTIFICATE.

Currently held by Bhali who gained his at 10 months old, Kendi gained hers at her second ever show aged 6 1/2 months!  Another record was broken when she gained her final points for her Junior Warrant.  Certainly Kiromol have never had a puppy earn a Junior Warrant at 8 1/2 months old, and as far as I know, this is a breed record also.

*******************************************************************

2012 comes to an end with the Kiromol Kennel having 3 new Champions - Ch Kiromol It's All About Me at Kikeba ShCM JW, Ch Kiromol Kubwa Mno ShCM JW and Ch Kiromol Tallulah Belle JW.

During the course of the year, Ch Kiromol Kubwa Mno  - 'Bhali' has clocked up 1 CC, 3RCCs, plus fantastic 2nd place in the Champion Stakes at Richmond Championship Show.  Bhali currently has a total of 3CCs and 13 RCCs. Ch Kiromol Tallulah Belle JW - 'Tallulah' has won 1CC and 1 RCC, her total is 3CCs and 3RCCs. Ch Kiromol It's All About Me at Kikeba ShCM JW - 'Arkle' - owned by Alison Muir has won 2CCs and 3RCCs this year, totalling 5CCs and 5RCCs.

The year started off with  Khaos (Kiromol Khaos) giving birth to 6 beautiful puppies to the liver nosed SA CH Usakose Air of Success at Gondwana - 'Mister Brown'.  Mister Brown was bred in Australia by Sharron Taylor and exported to South Africa to Cheryl Jacobs' Gondwana kennel. Mister Brown spent a short time in Europe when we were lucky enough to have the opportunity to mate him to Khaos. This litter was born on Friday 13th January, and on the 17th January, Jera (Trumhill's But of Course at Kiromol) arrived from Canada to join us all at Kiromol.  Sadly however, on 24th January our highs were suddenly brought down with a bump when we lost our treasured Delilah (Ir Ch Kiromol Kianga) just a couple of weeks short of her 11th birthday. Delilah was also dam to Ch Kiromol Kantigi of Kikeba ShCM JW owned by Alison Muir.

Jera was shown at Manchester Championship show 3 days after arriving in the UK, by her breeder Hazel Parker (Trumphill Kennel) who accompanied Jera on her Transatlantic journey to the UK.  Jera won 1st in the Puppy Bitch class which then immediately qualified her for Crufts 2013.

In May, Kiromol won BEST BREEDERS IN SHOW at the SRRA Championship show under breed specialist Mrs Jenni Morris. We repeated this win at the Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of GB's Silver Jubilee show in September, this time under Finish judge Mr Rainer Vourinen.

In June, Lena and Liz flew to Amsterdam as Liz was giving her first set of CACs at the prestigious Jachthondesnshow. It was while we were on our way to catch our flight to Amsterdam, we got the call from a very excited Paul to say that Bhali had won his 3rd and qualifying CC at the Southern Counties Championship Show!  One month later, Tallulah gained her third CC at Leeds Championship Show.

In October, Kiromol were awarded the Rose Bailey Memorial Trophy for BREEDERS OF THE YEAR. This was the fourth year running Kiromol have held this award.  CH Kiromol Kubwa Mno ShCM JW (Bhali) was awarded Top Dog at the SRRA AGM for the second year running.

At the SRRA Club Show, also in October,  Bhali won Best Dog for the third year running. Bhali first won this award from the Junior class, second year from the Limit class and now from the Open class.

As December comes to a close, Kiromol hold the TOP BROOD BITCH title with Kiromol Kinuka (Luca) for the second year in a row.  And at the time of writing this update, Kiromol It's Now or Never (Elvis) is TOP STUD DOG.

The final show of 2012 was Luton Canine Society's Premier Show on 28th Dec. A fantastic end to the year as Bhali won Best of Breed and sweet Jera won 1st in Post Graduate (her third such win on the trot).

 

A HAPPY AND HEALTHY NEW YEAR TO ALL OUR FRIENDS OLD, NEW AND YET TO MEET ACROSS THE GLOBE!
