Basenjis - week 26Updated : 22/06/2017

A BUSY show weekend again and it was Hound Club of East Anglia open show, held at Sacrewell Farm and Country Centre near Peterborough. It’s a lovely venue and with a friendly committee, so I do recommend.      BOB was Woodella Purple Haze at Cooperland (Roo), owned by Paul Richardson and Marianne W...

IT WAS a busy weekend overseas where the Norwegian and Finnish Clubs held their respective specialities.         The first was the Norwegian speciality where the judge was Irene Horner. Looking at the photos on social media, it was a rather wet and muddy day, which is a little unfortunate ...

WE ENJOYED a glorious sunny start to the day at Southern Counties Canine Association Championship Show. Judge for our breed Mr Siegfried Peter (Germany) had a strong entry of 27 dogs, which considering it was a Friday was very good for this show.      DCC and BOB went to Carl and Julie Nicholls’ Fi...

WE DECIDED (at the last minute) to enter SKC this year and make a weekend break of it, so stayed Friday night near Edinburgh in reediness for the show the following day. My goodness it is a long trip even from my location in Lincolnshire, and unfortunately the weather was not kind on the day of the show, it absolutely poured...

BY NOW I am sure most have seen the Kennel Club’s announcement for the new Competency Framework for the education, progress and approval of judges.      DOG WORLD provided a good summary as follows: “It differs radically from the current system, based on ‘competency’ rather than, ...

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.

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.

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 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.
