We, Monika and Peter Pehr, are living in a small village with around 200 people about 25 km easterly of Ingolstadt in beautiful Bavaria.
Our Ridgeback females Alika, her daughter Trinity, Trinity's son Spencer, her niece Ginny and of course our Arabian horses Morabh and Paproc as well as the Trakehner mare Sissi belong to our family.
We saw our first Ridgebacks in the year 1997, during an Arabian horse show, and were immediately absolutely enthusiastic. After we have informed us about this breed it was certain for us: the Ridgeback is the right dog for us. In summer 1998, nearly one year later Kimba came to us as a puppy of 9 weeks of age. Kimba died at the age of almost 15 years, on 31. January 2013.
At the end of the year 2000, our Kennel name was registered: Thuraia, this means translated "Star of my life".In spring 2001 Kimba got her first litter. The sire was the Canadian male Yankee (Witches LeCreme's Trick). From this litter we kept her daughter Alika. Her second litter two years later was by Aliko (Tumalanga Aliko).
Alika had her first litter in 2004 by Jack (Eilack Thsombe).Two years later we planned Alika's second litter - a insemination with frozen semen by Austr.Gr.Ch. Axle (Skiska Solitaire Jest). Tinity was theresult of this insemination, and of course we kept her because she was the only puppy we got.
In March 2009 Ben came from Croatia to us. He is a marvelous dog!
From our G-litter in the year 2011 we kept a male puppy - Spencer.
Alika died in Mai 2014 at the age of over 13 years.
In July 2014 our newest family member came to us. Ginny was bred in Kennel Kianga / Switzerland and she is a daughter of Trinity's halfsister Etana from our E-litter.
Ben died in December 2015, suddenly and totally unexpected at the age of 10 1/2 years.
Trinity, Spencer and Ginny are an integral part of our family.
