Drina Da-Vo Ridley

Drina was perhaps one of the most beautiful of all the bitches that I have been lucky enough to own.

Drina had one litter in Czechoslovakia (Flik, Flop and Flok Da-Vo, whelped 18/9/1991 - none have been bred on from) before being exported to the United States. When I bought her, in 1993, her coat was so matted that I sheared it off like a fleece.

She came back to the UK with me in 1994, and had another litter - by Zrak del Monte, born 13/10/1997. The pups had septicaemia, and just one survived. I named him Ridley Zazrak (zazrak = miracle).

Zazrak sired just one litter, the Ridley 'J's, and through Ridley Jitka, Drina is Emily's great-great-great grandam.

Before leaving her home country, Drina was shown twice - at the World Show in Brno 1990, where she won the puppy class, and at the special Terrier Show in Mlada Boleslav where she took the Youth Winner title.



Some of Drina's critiques:
World Show, Brno 1990
Skus nužkový, chrup zatím nevinutý, elegantní temperament fena a výbornou hlavou, uche vetši, jinak po všech stránkách odpovídá standartu a veku.
Scissor bite, teeth still erupting, elegant bitch, with good temperament and excellent feminine head, Ears a little too large, corresponds to the standard for her age. VN1
