Before I left for my new home, it was great for me to be living with her and the other 2 grown up members of the Ridgeback family; Amarula & Saba. I learnt lots from them and was already very well socialised around big dogs and knew how to show polite manners towards my elders.

My Rhodesian Ridgeback Papa
My Papa Sion ( Amini-Sion-Mawasili) is a very experienced traveller. He was born on the 9th September 2004 in the Czech Republic (breeder: L. Jaromir). He is very handsome and wins lots of shows..you can see his show results here.

When I was very little ( a big Shortie), I was lucky to spend a lovely summer’s day with him at his home relaxing in the garden whilst Vikki talked with his humans, Paula & Bruno. Paula said I was a bold little girl, fearless of my big Papa Sion.
Sniff-sniff..Papa Sion smells familiar
Following Papa-Sion around
In July 2010 I visited my Papa Sion again, this time I wasn’t such a small pup. We had a run around together and I watched his amazing ‘sniff & dig’ skills. His human, Bruno, told Vikki that my Papa is excellent at scenting and tracking in the field and he thinks I have the same talent.
