It was pure luck that Savanna had her litter here at our place on 10 May 2010

One of the grey females was a real stand-out, so she stayed

From an early age, River had a combination of stunning good looks and great conformation with a grey coat and dark brown eyes

Friendly, happy and extremely dominant - even from an early age  -  she responded to training very positively.

Outgoing and confident, River sure was noticed in the show ring with a series of Class in Group wins from day 1  -  as well as wins in Sweepstakes

aged 2 weeks  -  and dark grey way down all her legs

aged 3 weeks here

 

aged 4 weeks

So pretty and eye catching

 

aged 3 months here  -  her first show - 15 August 2010

River goes Dancing!

She is a dog with great aptitude, a lot of focus and a love of performing the tricks and turns. Taking so much in her stride, I only started training her seriously on 1 January 2012  -  after accepting that my dog Taxi had died. 

We worked on a dance to Forever in Blue Jeans with the Queanbeyan & District Dog Training Club which was part of the Demonstration Day on 29 May 2012.  Here is a clip:

At the Cootamundra District ABKC in May 2012, we performed a routine which won us 2nd Place in the Freestyle - Showcase Your Dog    informal lunch time competition

     

This was reprised  when River WON the Freestyle - Showcase Your Dog informal class at the Cootamundra ABKC Shows on 12 May 2013 with a different impromptu Dance routine

 

Endurance Test  -  1  July 2012  -  and River breezed through!

The grey colour extended down her legs to her feet  -  never had a pup with this much colour at such a young age before!

 

The other pups in this litter went to the best pet homes  -  their gorgeous looks and so friendly temperaments meant that they were much sought after family pets.

These pictures below are of Savanna as a tiny baby in her litter of 3  (born 25 September 2006) who we raised and enjoyed before sending them back to her breeder.

Their mother is Flow  - Champion Starscape Riverdance ET  -  another special dog who shared our lives

Flow had been hit by a car, suffered a brain injury, and became pregnant with this litter by accident.  It was not known whether she would be able to care for the pups, but she proved to be a super mum - still friendly, gentle and caring.

Savanna  is  River's mum  here aged 1 day

Savanna worked towards her Endurance Test title and gained it by gaiting 20 kilometres on 1 August 2010.

A small step forward for Savanna, and one which we were happy that she accomplished

She went to the best home in Sydney in October 2010 where she was loved and cared for by Matt.

Savanna started suffering seizures from May 2011 and her prognosis is not certain
