Holmland Owl's Rafiki Cali

 
Holmland Owl’s Rafiki Cali (Cali) dob. 03-03-1997
 
Cali, short for Calimero, was the smallest puppy in Bundi's second litter. He was also the cutest ;-) so I kept him for myself. It took him a long time, but he grew into a beautiful, impressive dog, with a very gentle, kind temperament.
He is very cuddly, really the sweetest dog in our household. We have done some formal training and he passed the UV (endurance), VEG and GH cynophilia tests.
After that, he lost interest (like a true RR ;-) so we stopped training.
 
He was shown quite a few times and usually won his class, almost always with "excellent". His biggest wins include Best Male at the Amsterdam Winner show, BOB and 2nd in group at the International Arnhem show and BIS at our own local club show.
He sired Kana's (Kwetu's Springtime in Holland) first litter at the age of 5. Since there were 4 pups with DS, I have decided not to use him for breeding anymore.
Fortunatly, áll his kids are doing very well and have all inherited his wonderful temperament and good looks.
Right now, he is enjoying life together with his litter sister Sante and his daughter Kiku, who boss him around all the time.
