Basenjis - week 15Updated : 06/04/2017

LAST WEEKEND was the turn of the Northern Basenji Society (NBS) to hold its spring open show and AGM.       Judge for the day was Hazel Legget and I believe her entry was a very credible 30 plus dogs. Apologies I cannot provide more clarity but I do not have a marked up catalogue at the time of comp...

Basenjis - week 12Updated : 20/03/2017

CRUFTS 2017 is over for another year, and I think we all survived in one piece. This show usually makes for an interesting day especially with the recent additions of overseas friends and exhibitors and 2017 was no exception.      Interestingly I counted about 30 dogs as non-UK residents and from the fol...

Basenjis - week 10Updated : 02/03/2017

A REQUEST from Melinda Hitch (Zendushkas Afghans) to share details of the AHA event which is repeating its popular exploration of hounds day. She writes: “This time we look at fitness for our hounds, to find the fit, fitter, fittest on Saturday April 22 at Chieveley Village Hall, Berks RG20 8TE starting at 11am. Breeds...

Basenjis - week 9Updated : 23/02/2017

THIS TIME next week most of us will be gathered at the NEC for this year’s Crufts spectacular, so it is unlikely there will be any breed notes until after the event, when I will share the results and fun of the day.      As a reminder for those attending as spectators and or exhibitors, Basenjis (a...

Basenjis - week 8Updated : 16/02/2017

WESTMINSTER Dog Show is always an interesting spectacle, although this year we were let down by the official live coverage. Thankfully live streaming was kindly provided by some British friends who were visiting the show.      From an entry of 18 dogs judge James G Reynolds’ BOB was GCH Ch Sundiata...

Basenjis - week 7Updated : 09/02/2017

WELL IT’S that time of year again and Crufts is now less than a month away; no idea where the last 12 months has disappeared to. Overall the entry for Crufts is down on the previous year, but still an impressive total of 21,838 dogs competing in all disciplines.      Pauline Varley (Jaswyn) has the...

Basenjis - week 6Updated : 02/02/2017

QUITE a few updates for you this week, sadly starting with the news from Paul Singleton that there is a Basenji in rescue currently. Paul goes on to say: “In rescue at the moment is a six-year-old bitch. She has been assessed and is now ready for a new home. She is not good with other dogs and very unsure of ‘new...

Basenjis - week 5Updated : 27/01/2017

Kwala gained his first CC last year at the NBS championship show from Kim Ellis, and his second CC fro...

Basenjis - week 4Updated : 20/01/2017

I AM ALWAYS interested to read show critiques, especially in my own breed but also those of some other breeds and particular judges. Usually you do get a sense of what the judge was looking for in their decision making; not always clear but at least you have some understanding of their thoughts on the day.    ...

Basenjis - week 3Updated : 12/01/2017

A BELATED happy new year to all and hope you all enjoyed the festive period. We can all now look forward to the new show season and enjoy the many new puppy pictures on social media for the foreseeable. It is always sad to hear of someone’s death but especially at this time of year; and I have to share the sad news...

Basenjis - week 52Updated : 20/12/2016

WELL THE final week of the year is upon us and I have absolutely no idea where 2016 went in such a flash, only seams a few weeks ago the summer had started and the new puppies were out!      2016 has been a very interesting year results wise and the top wards in our breed for 2016 are as follows: Top d...

Basenjis - week 51Updated : 14/12/2016

DELIGHTED to share some good news from Paul Richardson and Marianne Wood – Woodella Purple Haze over Cooperland (Rumour/RRR) has achieved her ShCM. This is an award that a dog can achieve through winning certain awards at general and group open shows and must obtain a total of 25 points. The title ShCM may be used afte...

Basenjis - week 49Updated : 01/12/2016

FOLLOWING on from my last breed notes I have been in correspondence with Chris Frost (Bushwacker Basenjis, now based in Canada). Chris held the role of breed health coordinator before Lisa TJ and has been involved with Basenjis for some decades.      Chris, in my view, was one of the early pioneers (mi...

Basenjis - week 47Updated : 16/11/2016

IT WOULD appear I have been ‘volunteered’ to take on the role of breed health co-ordinator from 2017, so I thought this may be a good opportunity to provide some information about the role and what it means for our breed.      Firstly, I am sure many of you, like me, will be thankful to Lis...

Basenjis - week 46Updated : 10/11/2016

MY THANKS to May Mills for providing the information on the winners of last weekend’s Northern BS open show. Total entry was 38, NFC seven and 11 absentees.      The judge was Rachel Wray and her BB and BIS was Rusty and Erik Arend African Mystery’s Fahari and RBB was Rusty Grayson’s ...

Basenjis - week 45Updated : 03/11/2016

IT WAS a beautiful autumnal drive to Midland Counties, where Val Allen of Zordia Basenjis had an excellent entry of 17 dogs. No CCs on offer for our breed at this show which is disappointing as it does usually attract a decent entry.      Basenjis were third in the ring after two Dachshund varieties; u...
