Charm is a great big hunka hunka burnin' love and is a real Charmer!  He started his show career out with a "BANG" at just 3 1/2 months old, winning Best in Show Puppy and Best in Show Bred By Exhibitor at the International Dog Shows in Orlando in October 2011!  He has grown into a stunning dog and between his great good looks and awesome temperment....everybody who meets him wants to take him home!  SUCH a sweetheart, an "old soul" at heart, yet the puppy antics are there, as well!  He loves the water and chasing birds on the beach is one of his favorite pastimes!  He's too darned smart for his own good...even figured out how to "climb" our persimmon tree and strip it of all it's fruit last fall!

Bono joined our pack in July 2015 and quickly wormed his way into all of our hearts and is an excellent addition to our gang!   He is such a love muffin!!  He did what every other growing pup does here....quickly made for Strider to make friends and to have him to snuggle up to!  He has quickly adjusted to life on the farm and spends hours each day romping around with his buddies exploring and sadly, wreaking havoc on the gardens.  He began his show career at 7 mos. with a bang during Eukanuba week in December with 3 Reserves and 1 win in 4 shows!   He finished his Championship in style in June at 13 months of age and then went on to achieve his Grand Championship.  He finished his International Championship in October, winning Best In Show Bred By Exhibitor!  So thrilled for this young boy!!

Our newest Champion!  Huey finished his championship with a third major win on October 26th in Plant City!   He is our sweet lovable big boy who is co-owned and loved by Doug and Jan Pope here in Florida.  Named after Doug's beloved helicopter that he  used to fly back in Vietnam, Huey has become his boon companion and support dog.  Doug finally agreed he could part with him long enough to show him and he hit the show ring with a BANG!  Finishing in just three weekends of shows, we couldn't be more thrilled!  He loves working with our handler, Arvind deBraganca, and we hope to be announcing his GRAND championship before year's end!  He is a very affectionate, playful guy who makes himself right at home when visiting here on the farm.

She also has earned her Herding Instinct certificate, showing promise that she, too, can be a great farm dog. In November 2014, she earned her International Champion title, garnering 2 Group 1s and 1 Group 2 and 3 Best Bred By Exhibitor Group 1s.  So excited to announce Ygritte earned her Grand Championship, finishing in style with 5 major wins, including back to back 4 pt majors in Brooksville. Unlike a lot of Ridgebacks, she LOVES the water and not only likes both fresh water and the ocean, she is a pretty darn awesome retriever, too!  As long as the sticks are thrown in the water, that is!!

Duma is our little powerhouse from Tori & Jethro and is an amazing little girl!  In her first show, she won 3rd place in a very competitive class at our National Specialty show in September 2015. Her 2nd time in the ring, at our Regional Specialty in Orlando in December, she won Best of Opposite in Sweeps and was Reserve Winners to a 4 pt major.  She topped that off the next day, showing at the Eukanuba National Championship show and brought home her first win - a 4 point major, Best of Winners and Best Bred by Exhibitor!  I am beyond thrilled and in awe of this beautiful pup!  Like her mother, she is sassy, but sweet, obedient, but an instigator for causing trouble - let's NOT talk about my plants!!! and a beautiful, beautiful girl.  She was back in the ring in the Spring 2016, and quickly finished her championship in September 2016 with her 4th Major win.

Reine Marie is our beautiful Legend/Arya daughter and is my joy!  She is a happy, happy soul who spends endless hours entertaining herself hunting lizards and moles all around the farm.  Endless hours!  There are a ton of holes to prove her ability in tracking those underground devils!  Unfortunately, some of my plants get in her way.  Deep sigh.  She and her buddies would much rather spend their days out romping thru the water and woods. Did I mention the endless hours of hunting?  Yes.  Endless!  Needless to say she is very fit!  Unfortunately this also affects her love of showing!  Which she HATES!  She goes off on the show road with her Uncle Arvind who is determined to get her finished....and we both get the Stink Eye from her and looks of utter contempt for making her do this!  And YES!  I have spoiled her rotten and that hasn't helped!  Oh, well! 
C'est la vie!!!  Soon she WILL earn her Championship and as I have promised, never have to do it again!
