His homepage: HERE (lots of wonderful pics)
When I first saw the pics of Argos on the internet I knew right away that this is the perfect match for Mea!
I started to search for info about this outstanding male and the more pics I saw, and the more info I got about his wonderful temperament, the more I knew that this is the Mr Right! His owners have been so kind sending me pictures and lots of info for quite a while now..
Mea started her season in Dec 2010, long before expected, so I hadn’t time to get his frozen semen to Norway. Luckily there were some dozes in Finland, and off we went. Due to slow Christmas Mail, so the blood sample (progesterone) couldn’t reach the lab in time, and that there were weekend and no new blood sample could be taken before Monday in Finland (and then is was to late), and that Mea’s progesterone level increased more than normal, it was no pups this time. But Argos and Mea is absolutely worth waiting for! :-)
Mea is a well built, harmonious bitch with a lovely head and expression. She has several BOB-puppy placements, a BIS3 puppy placement, several CQ and best bitch placements, two CAC and BOB and a BIG3 placement.
Mea is the sweetest dog! She is so kind! She is not used with children, but she loves them. She can walk to a stroller an start to kiss the little kid. Parents with kids that are afraid of dogs let them meet Mea. She is so calm and gentle. Here are some pics of her in the puppypen giving her pups food while some kids that she didn’t knew paid us a visit. She is not used to cats either, but she loves them! And her puppies! She is the best dog mum I ever seen. She is made for that task! And when she now meet her first litter, she is thrilled! She plays with them and show us that she enjoys to meet them again. I haven’t experienced it to such an extent with other females. And when I have Toller litters she is the best play auntie! Here she is only 10 weeks old, and so gentle and careful. Here she is 1,5 years and still careful.
Mea is an easy dog to live with, and she has always been healthy. She comes from a litter where it is both exhibition champions and a bloodtrack champion.
Argos is a medium sized dog, with good bone, beautiful front, good angulations, beautiful topline, very nice tail set and with awesome movements! The more that I look at him, the more I think that he complete Mea.
Here is how his «mum» Kirsi describes him: «Argos is a true gentleman!!! He has a temperament to die for! In any breed’s standard! He is my soul-dog, my baby, my guardian, my once-in-a-lifetime dog!! He has done everything he could have in his show-career – he loves showing and that is why he has been showing for almost 5 years now!! He has been #1 ridgeback in Canada 3 years in a row (the first year that he just turned one in October he was #2!!!) – this year we have taken him to SEVEN shows and he is #2 ridgeback in Canada!! He was top-20 in US last year with very limited showing down there too! He has 4 all breed Best in Shows and he has won Hound specialty twice – he has earned more points then any other Ridgeback in the breed history in Canada! But as I said – his best feature, after all these, is still his temperament! ANYONE that has ever met him is telling the same!! I am starting a therapy dog course with him soon – that is his calling! In a big show this fall there were lots of handicapped people that had come to see dogs – we would walk to all kinds of different people and they got to pet him – their care-takers advised me to get him into the therapy-dog program because he was so natural! With other dogs – Lance’s 3-year old son can walk him in a show!!! In fact he could be free and if I didn’t have to worry about other dogs attacking him or bitches in season, he would never need a leash around other dogs»
Not long after this Kirsi wrote this: «Argos was tested for his suitability to be a registered Therapy-dog. He is now St. John’s Ambulance registered Therapy Dog!! This is required by all the facilities where dogs can go and work as therapy-dogs. This is a demanding 2-hour test that tests the dog’s temperament – they have to get along well and be calm toward other dogs, they are not to be afraid of sudden loud noises and movements, they have to be calm around people that have involuntary movements and can make funny noises. The test is testing a lot of real-life situations that can happen in group-homes and hospitals that the dog is going to visit. Argos passed with flying colors – there was not even one test that he didn’t pass without any doubt!»
I asked Kirsi what his other titles means and got this answer: «Am JC and CGC, both are American titles – CGC (Canine Good Citizen) is same as CGN in Canada but we did the temperament test in both countries! JC is coursing certificate, VC is our Canadian Ridgeback club title, it is Versatility Companion, meaning that he has 3 titles (Ch, JC, CGC).»
The litter’s pedigree would include some of the most winning Ridgebacks in Scandinavia, Europa and the US.
