Basenji Club of America National Specialty, July 11-15, 2012, Gettysburg, PA
Wow. We had a very successful and wonderful week at the National this year. We got to meet our friend, Helene Roos, from Sweden in person, (finally)! Helene was in the States to pick up her new pup, Kenset Suddanly Phoenix, Sunny, and check out our specialty show. It was wonderful spending time with Helene, although there always seemed to be dogs that needed to be walked, or taken in the ring! It was a very busy week. Check out the pictures of all the Suddanly winners!
SHOT ASFA Lure Coursing Trial, April 21 and 22, 2012
We had a great time, even though I got chiggers and poison ivy. Our friends Ann and David Bach and John and Ford Hinck were there. Eagle took 1st in the open stake both days and BOB both days to finish his championship! Breeze took 1st in the field champion stake both days for 16 points towards her LCM. On Saturday, Dennie took 2nd place and Sassafras 3rd! That afternoon, Flare and Wrinkle certified so they could join the fun. On Sunday, it was a 3 way tie for first place in the open stake between Eagle, Flare and Wrinkle. It was a rainy cold day, but all ran well. Dennie was 4th and Sass NBQ out of 7 dogs.
Piedmont Kennel Club Show, April 8, 2012
What a thrilling day! Dennie took Reserve, and Eagle went Best of Winners, Best of Breed over 4 specials and Best Bred By Exhibitor! Then, he continued to float around the ring to take a Bred By Exhibitor Hound Group 1! Well, he wasn't done even then and went on to clean up with Best Bred By Exhibitor in Show! We could not be more proud of our Eagle.
