Nandi is a Kwetu girl. She is my "American princess" and a precious present I got from Barbara Sawyer Brown. Her mother is a daughter of two famous dogs I was very fond of: Am. Ch. Rusteau of Kwetu ROM (aka Rusty) and Am. Ch. Kwetu's Belmont Lady ROM. So when Barbara wrote me about this litter, telling me I can have a female puppy I was so excited. My excitement grew when I learnt that this pup is a Brown Nose. This color is very rare in Israel, prior to Nandi we know about only 2 brown noses in Israel, and I though it is very important to keep the genetic variety as wide as possible.

So, at the very end of December 1999, just at the turn of the millennium I went to fetch Nandi. Nandi was born in Georgia. At Rokishoals kennel that co-own Branda, (Kwetu's Peace Chance ROM) Nandi's mum. I spent 3 unforgettable days at the beautiful place of Denise and Jim Price. The flight back home took place at December 30, 1999, and because of the Bug 2000 panic we were almost the only passengers on board and Nandi was allowed on board, taking over a whole line of 4 seats - her box taking 21/2 seats.. Nandi was the crew's favorite passenger and even the pilot came to see her well, I guest we can call that a soft landing

Nandi lives with Eti and Arik Nadler in Kefar Saba, sharing their huge love with Monika, a rescued Ridgeback of small size and rough history. Their common habit is – sleeping at Eti & Arik bed.

Nandi's dad is USA Ch. Rare Earth's Quantum Leap CDX AX AXJ TT CGC VC, who was among the top 10 agility Rigebacks in the States 1996, 1997, 1998 I was hoping she will follow him and show some interest in working, specially agility (since we do not have lure coursing in Israel), Nandi did participate in some agility activity but soon she did let us know that bed is a much better option in her eyes.

Nandi holds few "First" – she is the first American bred Ridgeback that became an Israeli Champion, she is the first brown-nose Ridgeback to become Israeli champion. Her daughter Rich-Rach Gilli of Kwetu became the first Israeli born Ridgeback to become US Champion and her grandson Red became the first Israeli-born brown nose who became Isr. Ch.).
Nandi had only 1 litter but from that litter all the offsprings that have been shown became champions. She has 2 Israeli Ch. Daughters and one American.
