"Kele" was our foundation bitch - our first Ridgeback and first show dog. She was owner handled to
championship finishing with three major wins including a Best of Breed over champions. She was a
super moving bitch with very good conformation overall, fairly large. Extremely friendly and outgoing.
Looking for a stud dog which would give us some compromise in size, we bred her first to Ch. Kujur
Konoko B, CDX, TD in Rockford, IL. This litter produced five amateur owner-handled champions, one
of which also earned a CD in his first three trials: Ch. Globe's Askari Sala, Ch. Globe Kele Muziki
Tarabu, Ch. Globe's Hodari Anza, Ch. Globe's Kusini Shamba, CD, Ch. Shikala Globe's Koala Bear.
Kele received the award "Register of Merit" from her first litter. From her second litter of 4 came Ch.
Globe's KeSa Paka Lia for a total of six champions from Kele. Kele was tied for #3 Brood Bitch for

"Sala" was breeder-owner-handled to championship with three major

exceptionally good movement. Multi-Best of Breed winner in limited

"Lia" was breeder-owner handled to her championship. Lia was dark
wheaten with some white on chest and a little on toes. Like her sire and
dam, she had superior movement with good reach in front and strong
drive in rear. Her personality was outgoing and friendly with a good
show attitude. She was quite athletic with good muscle tone.
Lia gave us two litters with no ridgeless or dermoid sinuses. Lia's first litter by Ch. Rawhide's The
Kalahari Kid, CD consisted of one puppy - an outstanding bitch: Ch. Globe Lia's Kid Abilene (Abby),
who was a multi-group placer and #1 breeder-owner handled bitch in 1985. Lia's second litter by Ch.
Turoka Globe's Casino Renose, produced a litter of four from which we got another excellent
bitch, Ch. Globe's CaLia Toi Soldier (Toi), who was also a group placer.
Two that figure prominently in our own breedings are Sala and Lia:
