Prada has been imported from CZ. She is from famous finnish male, Tarujen Mabaru, who I got to know very well. He had great outlook and exceptional working dog skills. I'm happy that Prada has got some same qualities in her mentality. She has been really wonderful RR to work with. We were training some years working dog tracking and obedience. We gainned Obedience TK1 & TK2 titles pretty easily. She has also passed BH trial which a few ridgebacks per year pass in Finland. In Lure Coursing she has been very good and keen on the lure but never reached to the official CACs. For fun I have also trained some agility and blood tracking. Now we are every now and then training rally obedience and we got RTK1 and RTK2 titles in spring 2016. Prada has got two times full 100 points in rally trial. :)

In dog shows Prada has gained almost everything we have striven. She has been few times Best Of Breed and took some group placements as well. She got four needed CACIBs to became C.I.B at age of four years.

Prada is dam to my two litters, 2011 & 2013. Both times she got 11 puppies and was careful, good mother. About litters you can read more on other pages!

Prada loves to do anything with me! She loves to cuddle. She loves food more than any dog I have ever seen so far. She loves to play tug-o-war. She loves all people but she still knows when she needs to guard us or herself. She's precious.

Good Bye Forever most happy, positive and loving dog!
My best friend, my best partner in many hobbies, best mom for her 22 babies... 1.8.2019 it was time to let her go.. forever free. :(

Spring 2019 it was successfully removed two malignant mammal tumours. In end of july Prada started to limp often her right front leg and even the pain killers did not help totally. Even she was feeling happy, I was already sure that there was nothing to do but I wanted to make veterinary check her before letting her go. We found lump and aching lymph node in her underarm and in x-ray we found out that she had almost no intervertebral disc left in gap between 1st and 2nd thoracic vertebraes and there was lot of osteoarthisis/spondylosis over those vertebras. So it was sadly self-evident that there is no return to better anymore.

I needed to let her sleep away.

I cannot believe how she was so glad and positive until the last moment of her life. Not to mention her endless appetite of course.
Once again it's the hardest part of being a dog owner. I will never forget you <3 Prada <3
