Quick Bio:

FOOD, lure-coursing....GET THE BUNNY!, laying the sun, going for a walk, playtime with dog pals and cuddling on the couch with Mom

Wet Grass....Hate It!! Wet feet, nail trimming and sitting when the ground is cold...brrr, and not getting treats all the time

My squeaky Quail, rope bones, pig ears, sticks and logs

Favorite Food:
Frosty Paws (mom's recipe), english muffins, kongs with peanut butter and the treats Grandma brings every weekend (if I sit and look cute she gives me extra)

Favorite Walk:
Field with hiking trails at the end of our street

Best Tricks:
Getting out of his crate - He is Houdini! and giving both paws at once

Arrival Story:
After much research, we fell in love with this breed. We attended several dog shows, visited kennels, met with breeders and corresponded on Ridgeback groups until we learned enough information to make an informed puppy choice. We were referred to Bayete Kennels in New Jersey and made the drive there....5 hours in traffic. Well the ride home was the worst......after sitting with the pups for hours we could not bring our boy home since he was not quite old enough. Finally!! two weeks later we made the drive again and returned home with our big baby boy. It was all worth the wait!!

Horray - Zonka earned his confirmation title. He is now Ch Bayete Paulus Maximus, JC!!! Zonka has earned his JC in AKC Lure Coursing. He also has earned points toward his AFSA FC title. He will be learning more about showing in the confirmation ring. Wish us luck!!
