The kennel "Pregowce z Jasienia" (ZKwP FCI) was established in 1995 when our first ridgeback Brema arrived from The Czech Republic.
The year before our beloved German shepherd Terra had passed away. She was our loyal and loving companion through all the study years at the Agricultural Academy in Olsztyn , a friendly and responsible partner of both our small sons. She stayed with us for twelve good years of her life.
Not surprisingly, the decision to purchase a new puppy was very tough. Accidentally, I was offered a beautiful album about dogs where I found a photo of a dog of my dreams, an amazing, powerful, Rhodesian Ridgeback with this intelligent spark in the eye.
My husband, Mirek, found out that there had just been two litters in the Czech Republic, visited one of the kennels during one of his business trips and brought small Brema, our first Rhodesian ridgeback! Our dream!
At that time in Poland, the Rhodesian breed was virtually unknown , so Brema had to be my teacher or I had to find the information I needed on the Internet. I also looked up a few other rhodesian ridgeback owners In Poland. In time, some of those contacts became friendships until today.
Presently,our family consist of four "humans", four cats-Pippi , Kropka`s son Kresek , Pinki and pure breed devon rex Allegra, rr bitch Bora ( A by B Unique Reshzone) and her kids - son Homer ( litter H - after "Nazir" Gepard Pręgowce z Jasienia ) and daughter Ida ( litter I after Glenaholm Taariq) and two horses- Baflo and Eden.
It is clear that animals have the majority in our "pack".
No doubt - animals have changed our life completely.
To combine our professional lives with looking after our animals, we start the day very early to walk our energetic dog. At least one hour of walk through beautiful forest surrounding our house plus a horse ride at least twice a week along the seashore in Białogóra.
The cats walk themselves independently.
While our dogs and horses keep us active every day, the cats- purring back at home invites us to relax with them on a sofa.
